Leather is not just gear, but it’s also deemed as a lifestyle and is one of the biggest sub cultures in the kink community. Leather, unfortunately is often used as an umbrella and blanket term to describe and categorise a large amount of sexual preferences, identities and relationship structures, social organisations and groups and all loosely tied together by a single word. Leather is a sub culture that has primarily been identified as originating in American Cities within the gay culture both during and after World War II. Leather subcultures in these cities were often attributed to people who eschewed stereotypical queer behaviours, mannerisms and preoccupations. Leather was propagated by individuals who had an interest in military culture and honour codes, some of which still exist in some of today’s leather sub cultures.
Popularity Of Leather In Sex
Leather culture was formed through a period of hyper masculinity during a time where Marlin Brando’s The Wild One was extremely popular alongside the masculine and stylized images of Tom of Finland. Many of the traditional aspects of these leather cultures no longer exist, though in recent times there has been a resurgence of leather culture that is markedly different from older institutions and upholds different sets of values and honour codes that differentiate them from previously rigid societies.
Leather in these institutions require their own styles and values. Not all participants within leather culture will engage in a practice of kink sex or BDSM activities. Though there is anecdotal evidence suggested among sociological studies which describe that practitioners of leather will often experience a coming out process that is similar to the processes that occur during a revelation of sexuality and/or gender. The issues surrounding leather lifestyles is often the negative criticism and social perception that revolves around leather sex. Becoming interested in leather sex involves the gaining of sexual experiences and a deepening of knowledge surrounding both the leather community and ideas surrounding sex and sexuality. It’s almost a spiritual awakening of sorts.
Whether you enjoy leather as a fetish, use it as a tool, wear it for PRIDE, enjoy bear life or just plain like leather fashion. Leather is one of the most durable, erotic and exotic materials.
A good leather piece can last you years of continuous use where other items last a couple of wears at best. Although initially a little more expensive than most materials the longevity of leather makes it economical and cheaper of a per use basis than almost all other similar items made of other material.
