GLORY HOLE

“I many times have walked past sex shop windows or looked at fetish clothing websites or admired perverts in clubs and thought, “Boy, that really looks great.” Conversely, I’ve seen “FETISH inspired” fashion collections and thought, “the real shit is so much better.”

Why not just show the real thing on a beautiful girl looking beautiful? Let’s leave behind shame and conventional notions of sexual appropriateness and preconceived ideas about fashion and beauty… Why is shopping at Barney’s ok and shopping at Purple Passion not ok? Are you going to tell me Caroline doesn’t look major here?

Would she look more major in The Row?  No.

I think we all need less limits and more honesty.

Bravery is sexy.

Fetish or Die.

 

P.S – this is my world tour of NYC sex shops. I hate the word alternative, but here are some alternative fashion resources. I’m doing the world a favor. Also, we have been open minded about the fetishes attached to the different garments. We are gender unspecific and sex positive and sociologically curious. We are nonjudgmental. Sometimes these pieces look like art to me. Sometimes they just look hot.”
