It wasn’t until recently that I started thinking back to when my fetish first started. It’s something that has been there for so long, it was like a part of the furniture.
It all started when I was in primary school, I couldn’t have been any older than 6 at the time. All I can remember are flashbacks of times at the pool. Everyone was getting ready in the changing rooms, and I was sitting there absolutely fascinated with the rubber swimming cap I held in my hand, the feel, the smell and how it felt running my hands over my encased head when it was worn. It felt, nice.
Of course, at that age, I wasn’t sure of how my relationship with the fabric would progress, and how it would become such a major part of my life!
Growing older into teenage years, I developed a interest in gothic culture, clothing & alternative music etc. It was coming across pictures on the internet of women, tightly clad in shiny latex, looking absolutely breathtaking that took my mind to wondering about getting some of my own. I often wondered how it would feel, smell and move with my body. Would it be cold, or get hot and sweaty? Could you see your goosebumps through the fabric when there was a chill?
When I was 16, I first started talking to my now husband online. We met on a alternative music website and started talking about general things, fetishism being one of them. It felt great to finally pour my heart out to someone who understood me and was perverted just in the right ways! I grew up in a very secluded area of the UK where there was no fetish nightlife, or had anyone who dared to dress differently. It had often made me wonder if my fantasies were ‘normal’ as everyone else seemed so vanilla.
Skip forward a few months to when my husband and I first met that things really changed for my love of latex. I was spoilt from day one, a trend that has lovingly continued until today! He surprised me with my very own latex dress! It was a very tight, black dress from Westward Bound. High neck & full length sleeves, with a red fire detail at the rim of the cuffs and hem of the dress.
I remember carefully sliding myself into the somewhat alien fabric, and soon being overwhelmed by the feeling as it warmed to my body and moved just as I did. It was the perfect second skin. I felt completed in. Shining it up was such a pleasurable process, feeling your hands run over your body and watching the latex become a beautiful shined black. Being shined up is something I still enjoy to this day, it takes me to a place of senses, where everything is heightened to a fantastic point. It’s like a form of foreplay for me.
As I grew older (and reached legal age!) my wardrobe has grown, and I have enjoyed many different outfits over the years. Sadly, my original dress is now damaged beyond repair, but I still have the flame sleeve kept in a drawer of memories.
I also started making latex outfits about 3 years ago. It’s mainly a personal venture, I love wearing something different that no one else has, and of course its totally made to measure! I have been lucky enough to put on my own fashion shows in Bulgaria and Athens. It was a great feeling to watch others be admired in something I had created. But deep down, I wanted to keep it all for myself, because the models just didn’t ‘get it’.
My fetish for latex has blossomed into something beautiful. I am so lucky to model for a living and actually get paid to wear something I enjoy so much. Not many people can say that they love going to work! Being part of the ‘vanilla’ adult industry has been a great adventure too, I always try and get away with my own styling and of course latex comes in wherever it can! If not, then I will sneak in some stockings at least!
I think currently, my favourite thing to see is every day clothing in latex. From pencil skirts, blouses, tight trousers & dresses to ball gowns, stockings and elaborate lingerie. There are so many amazing designers out there to follow and admire, my Tumblr dashboard is a never ending scroll of beautiful, latex clad women!
The last 2 years have flown by so quickly and my time in the adult industry has been such an exciting adventure! I am currently busy creating content for my website which is launching in March 2015—it will be filled with hardcore, fetish content. And of course, plenty of latex!!
So, there’s a little insight into the mind of Zara DuRose, and how my fetish with latex started! It’s been a long journey, but it’s no way near over yet!
