A Fetish for Televison
It seems you can't pass a fortnight without a new media group looking to get kink on the box, YouTube and various social media to promote their gummi goodies or teach the world to kink. Here is our CatSuit round up of what out-there-kink channels are out there sending it... out there.
Taboo is a documentary TV series that started on the National Geographic channel way back in 2002 and aired its 100+ episodes for ten seasons with it's last in 2013. Investigative and occasionally titillating, it served as a televisual Bizarre magazine exploring, basically, anything deemed as 'freakily' beyond the norm, and not purely fetish and kink I'm afraid. However, in the episode Fantasy Lives, Taboo examines a man from Florida with a cybersex avatar family, a Japanese champion kickboxer with a penchant for dressing up as female anime characters and an adult baby man from California who has had all his furniture customised. That's made actually bigger, not smaller. Think about it.
Above is a clip for Rubber's Finest that appeared on German news service Spiegel TV (so only in German), but since that time RF have become RFTV, an online '.tv' channel with a professional quality set of shorts for kink consumers. Clips involve clubbing report, studio interviews and some charming QVC-style shopping promos, for RF products of course, and mostly in German with some English subtitles provided.
With a channel site that brings 'modelling, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from fashion shows and events across the UK and beyond', (above at Rubber Cult with Sarah Kawaii) the (as of 16/4/2015)website-in-progress LatexFashion.TV also boasts a YouTube video page with a 100 clips. With a budding following on social media numbering in the thousands, LatexFashion.TV at the moment appears to cater for those wanting a fetish fix of girls in rubber. And there's nothing not pervy about that.
Vibrato's Fetish World
Human vibrator Shawn Bordoff aka 'Vibrato' exhibits himself on the streets of in a vibrating massage motor and LED light harness and within the first two minutes is promptly stopped by the Vancouver police. Vibrato's Fetish World, a hopeful kink travel show, is balls-out perverted brilliance. With a relaxed and comfortable-within-himself demeanour Vibrato makes for a natural TV presenter and advocate for... human vibrators everywhere. Despite the smallest of hits and likes he represents the fun and natural engagability side of our off-piste kink & BDSM realm. Here in a pilot for Canadian TV he introduces himself to his fellows Vancouvians before exporting his trademark ventilated hosting style for the heat of Kink in the Caribbean.
This week our columnist, feminist sub Nicky Ives, is caught in the friendly fire of persuasion engendering
"Do you think it's possible I'm a lesbian?"
This was the start of a long text conversation with a friend, who sent me the message.
I mean, I guess anything's possible, in theory....
So I asked him what made him think that way.
"Well, I think my brain is a little over half woman.
And I'm attracted to women that are a bit like guys, or have similar qualities.
But physically, I'm more attracted to women than men."
Now I'm about as far away from an expert on such things as it's possible to be.
I'm a straight-ish
nearly middle aged mother
But I'm open minded, which may be why he chose me to ask!
So, I invited him to explore a bit more of his feelings/ sexuality, especially as he'd been married (to a woman) and recently divorced.
He says he's just discovering this side of himself.
He likes to dress up, but not necessarily in women's clothing.
He has fantasies of being heavily dominated/ degraded by women, although his only actual kink experience has been with other men.
This guy lives near Brighton.
Personally I thought it would be the ideal place to explore some of this stuff, but he doesn't know where to start finding out who he is. So... I pointed him in the direction of the FetLife website, and a few others I thought might help.
So, the question is this: Is it possible to be a man who feels more female and is attracted to women? In essence, being a male lesbian?
Then came the best bit.
A message from his ex-wife, saying she thought her straight, heterosexual ex-husband would be perfect for me. This was about as far from the truth as it gets; but I told her I wasn't interested... as I'd finally met someone.
Which actually is true.
But I'm out of time so you'll have to wait until next week ;)
