PVC Fetish vs. Latex Fetish
In the fetish community, there are three main materials that most fetish clothing is made from: latex, PVC and leather. Each of these three materials has its own unique characteristics. Most people can tell a piece of leather fetish gear from the other two, but many people confused PVC fetish gear and latex clothing because the two are almost indistinguishable from a distance. However, PVC fetish wear is different from latex, and it’s important to know what you’re getting when buying fetish wear.
First, let’s describe the two materials in detail. PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride, and it is essentially a plastic. You’ll note that PVC clothing is sometimes referred to as vinyl clothing, which comes from the “polyvinyl” part. Latex, on the other hand, is a type of rubber. The two materials do share some similar characteristics. The main one, and the reason that so many people get confused, is because of how shiny they both are. Both materials have a natural sheen to them that catches the light in a very striking way.
The real difference between latex and PVC fetish clothing comes in the way that the clothes are constructed. Latex clothing is usually made of 100% latex, whereas PVC fetish wear is made from sticking a layer of PVC onto a backing that is made of polyester or a similar material. Now, for people who don’t care about the feel of wearing latex and just want that unique look, this isn’t a problem. However, most latex fetishists love the sensation of rubber latex against their skin.
The feel of true latex fetish wear is pretty difficult to describe. You can tell it’s unique, however, just due to how difficult it is to even put it on. Latex clothing has so much friction that people have had to come up with various unique methods just to help them get into their latex wear. Some methods include using talc powder to reduce the friction (then brushing off the powder afterward) or even applying lube to their entire bodies to provide a smooth surface to slip the latex over.
