Please Leather

Leather and Sex seem to go together like freshly baked bread and butter. But where did this synergetic bond begin? Let’s take a look at the brief history of sex and leather.

Alright, buckle up kids, 'cause we're about to dive into a brief but spicy history of how sex and leather became the ultimate power couple throughout the ages.

Picture this: from ancient to modern times, leather has been the naughty accomplice to our wildest desires, strutting its stuff alongside human sexuality like a sassy sidekick in a steamy adventure, but where did it begin?

Back in the day, think ancient Greeks and Romans, leather wasn't just for sandals and belts. Oh no, it was the OG symbol of power, virility, and yes, you guessed it, sensuality. Gods and warriors alike rocked leather like it was going out of style (which it never did, by the way), oozing strength and sex appeal from every stitch.

Fast forward to the Middle Ages, when things got a little... kinky. Social norms were tighter than a corset, pushing desires into the shadows where leather became the ultimate rebel yell. Underground fetish guilds sneaking around in leather getups, thumbing their noses at convention and indulging in some seriously saucy pursuits was where leather found a home back then.

Moving on to the Renaissance period, a time of art, intellect, and leather-clad revelry. Artists and thinkers of the era weren't shy about celebrating the human form, often draping it in leather to symbolise all things carnal and delicious. Leather was like the ultimate Renaissance Tinder profile pic – swiping right on desire and left on inhibition. 

As the Industrial Revolution kicked into high gear, leather got a makeover for the masses.
Suddenly, everyone could get their hands on leather goods, from corsets to riding crops. The Victorians were all about that leather life, turning desire into a democratised commodity faster than you could say "steampunk chic."

As we entered the 20th century, where subcultures took leather and ran with it like a bat out of hell. Biker gangs, BDSM communities – you name it, they were rocking leather like nobody's business. Leather jackets became the unofficial uniform of rebels and renegades, while leather fetishism found a home in underground cultures, still steering clear from the prudish mainstream

Fast forward to today, where the love affair between sex and leather is still going strong. From fashion runways to underground clubs, leather is still the ultimate wingman / woman for those looking to spice things up.

It's so much more than just a material – it's a symbol of empowerment, self-expression, and of course, a darn good time.
