For me, leather is an essential part of my life, not only when playing, but in general. I love the feel of leather on my skin, the shiny look, and even the smell! I don’t know why, but even as a kid, leather had a big appeal on me. In my adult life, when BDSM, kink and fetish became part of my life, my love for leather grew even more.
Next to that, leather attributes are very useful in all kinds of play. Starting with a leather blindfold, adding some leather restraints, up to leather masks and hoods or full leather gear: It all adds to the fun, and feeling of power while playing!
A lot of info on leather can be found online, as well as in various posts on this site. So go ahead and read some more of the related posts if leather has your interest, or check out the premium quality leather items in the BRAVE shop if you’d like to experience the power of leather yourself.
If you want to try before you buy, and get some expert shopping advice, a visit to a shop that specializes in gear and especially leather gear is highly recommended. Great places to go are RoB in Amsterdam and Paris, MisterB in Amsterdam, Antwerp and Berlin and GEAR in Berlin.
