Secretly Exposing My Masculinity With Maskulo

Maskulo man

A big thanks to our dear friends at Maskulo for sending us some products for review.

Maskulo was founded by Artem Smyslov and Bulat Barntaev in 2014 at Oktyabrskaya st, 52, Novosibirsk, 630099 Russia in Siberia – the coldest of places.  The brand name simply means “masculinity exposed’ and they are leaders in male fetish wears.  Two openly gay men in a country where homosexuality is technically illegal producing high quality products using the best materials with attention to the finer details for all you kinksters out there.  A selection of jocksraps, briefs, tank tops, boxers and many accessories that will hit the right sensual spots. They especially have a wide selection of different types of designer underwear!

‘Fun’ and ‘hot’ are words that can be used to describe these intimate clothes that will look sensational on you making concerted efforts to deliver clothes that will increase your sex appeal when worn.  All the crew at Maskulo are creative and courageous people that work for a basic human right for lifestyle and sexuality choices.

Maskulo is now shipped to many countries around the world and the brand is slowly becoming one of the most sought after by the LGBTQIA+ community with much press for Bulat Barntaev who became the first openly gay man to run for Russian Parliament in the nation’s history.  Bulat has openly criticized Putin’s regime, which of course is a great risk to his personal safety.

The first product we have reviewed is the jockstrap JS30 which is an attractive fetish jockstrap for men.  It has a neon codpiece which is held in place by black metal snaps and glows under black light.  The codpiece is removable that can be used to expose your erection for some quick sex-play or just if you want to show off a bit.  The straps make this extremely comfortable to wear and really look great on someone who is muscular or athletic.

The Maskulo brand is generous in sizing and the sizing chart is shown below.

The jockstrap JS30 is made from 90% polyester and 10% elastane. The color options are neon orange, pink, green and white. The non-neon strap part of each jockstrap is in black.  The materials felt sexy and the elastic straps contour perfectly to the body.  The codpiece is held in place by 3 snaps configured in a triangular shape that are easy to click on and off.  The codpiece is made of a foam filled material.

Putting on some music I had a bit of a dance and then wore them for a few hours after. The jockstrap stayed in place and was extremely comfortable on.  The foam allowed my privates to breathe and thereby not get to sweaty or clammy.

A word of warning – hand wash the codpieces with a mild soap – do not get deodorant or any other alcoholic or thinner based liquids on it as they will cause color change and possibly make them non-neon under a blacklight.

Searching online the average price is around the $50 USD mark so it is very reasonable when compared with some of the other brands out there and with the great work these guys do for the LGBTQIA+ community, especially in Russia, I would prefer to support them than other companies just out for pure profiteering.

BDSM Clothing And Gear

I would love to thank the leather manufacturer Kailash G. Exports for providing a Leather Jock Strap for this review. I’ve spoken about my love of underwear before and how much that I enjoy wearing it, as well as the confidence that they provide. What I haven’t done, is speak about types of underwear and how it can affect the aesthetic in the bedroom with the simplicity of flipping a switch. One of my favorite styles of underwear is without a doubt, the jock strap. Despite its simplicity, there’s just something about it which gets my blood pumping and my cock twitching –  it doesn’t matter if I’m the one wearing it, or my sexual partner, if there’s a jock strap involved there’s definitely going to be a very positive reaction. So when I was given a new leather jock strap to review you can only imagine the joy in my reaction.

So What Is A Jock Strap?

A jock strap is actually a lot older than what I thought it was. The word has been in use since the late 1800’s and it’s defined as underwear which supports male genitals during athletic sports. It usually has a waistband, with a pouch for the cock and balls and leaving everything else free and bare. Its most commonly used and worn in American sports, and it’s probably because of this that it has slowly become a fashionable icon for men to wear. It shows off the body, especially the ass, and highlights the male genitals. I can tell you now that I’ve had several fantasies involving sports teams and jock straps, and it’s just one of those things that really look good on a man.

The jock strap that I received was a soft leather design, with a front zipper and a bare ass. There is a red stripe on the front which go on either side of the zipper and this is accentuated by red piping on the edge of the pouch, which helps the jock stand out in the crowd. When it comes to bondage gear and toys, most people have a particular colour that they like. For example, the majority of my leather gear is red or blue, whilst my partner is generally green or yellow. The colours don’t really mean much in normal situations – though there are sometimes colour coded parties which people can attend and the colour will show off your fetish. Whilst the colours for my partner and I, aren’t fetish related, it means that we can separate our gear and colour coordinate ourselves for events, scenes, or when having other people over, or if we are switching. Red is my dominant colour and blue is my more submissive colour – though I do have other colours that I like to use depending on the type of fetish play that we are doing that day. Whilst it does mean that I then need more gear, it also means that my gear is then specifically tailored towards a particular fetish. Useful in the event that something happens during a scene, and especially useful for getting my head in the right space.

I Love The Zipper

I loved the addition of the zipper in this jock strap. The zipper is great because it meant that I could pull my cock out without having to take off the jock strap. Meaning, that I could easily sex, jerk off, or be stimulated without complete removal of the jock. Sure, I’m usually nervous as hell when doing the zipper back up, and I certainly wouldn’t want to be caught having to do it up in a hurry – but I like not having to take it off.  What I really like about this jock strap, is not only is the inside of the jock – super soft and supple, but there’s actually a small flap of leather that sits OVER the fly from the inside. What this does, is prevent any unfortunate accidents involving your dick and a fly – a surprisingly handy feature that I think should have been added to all jock straps before this point. The smell of leather whilst sucking cock, or having sex can be just as much of a turn on as the sex itself. Personally, there’s few things that I find to be hotter than having sex with a guy whilst he’s still wearing his jock strap – they’re super easy to either pull to the side, or unzip allowing easy access to all the important bits. I did find the thickness of the straps on this jock strap to be a little thicker than what I usually get and they’re not exactly my usual style- but when wearing them they did seem pretty comfortable.

That’s the thing with leather, bondage, kink and fetish gear. It’s not just about the gear, but it’s about the look of the gear. Bondage toys heavily lean towards providing a certain aesthetic. I mentioned earlier that I have different colours depending on the role, and the fetish that I am engaging with that day. It helps get into the ‘head space’ necessary to fully engage with fetish and bondage play. For example, if I’m wearing red which is usually the colour that I use for ‘domming’ then it would be harder for me to switch into ‘sub mode’ when wearing red. I feel more confident and in control wearing red – and as such I use the colours to help my head space. Colours and materials are therefore very important when it comes to fetish gear. So when I put on this leather jock strap with its red line, and had my cock hanging out – you knew exactly who was in charge and control of the situation. Not to mention the way that it hugged my cheeks and highlighted my ass. Sure, I could wear a similar jock strap made of white mesh fabric, but it’s not going to convey the same kind of message that a leather jock strap will. All in all, I enjoyed this jock strap – though it wasn’t the perfect fit. I’m not a small dude, but I did need a cock ring to achieve the ‘full’ look, without which – it wasn’t entirely flattering. But then I do acknowledge that it is difficult to get a perfect shaped pouch for a jock strap that fits snug and lifts in all the right ways (especially in leather) – and wearing a cock ring underneath these days is pretty expected for most scenes. So it wasn’t a big deal – but if you’re not used to wearing cock rings under your jock straps then you might have a little more of an issue with it.

The Naughtiest Open Back Skirt Imaginable

Sexy Woman Wearing BDSM Gear

Last week I was lucky enough to receive a sexy little piece by leather manufacturer Kailash G. Exports, the open back faux leather skirt and oh how glad I am that I did. I have taken plenty of lingerie home for my girlfriend to wear for me in the bedroom in the past but I’ve never brought home anything leather, so this was something new for us. The best part about this skirt for her is that it is made out of faux leather and she is a vegetarian so the material was perfect.

Since working in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres I have learnt a lot about myself and what I like in the bedroom, before working here I had never really experimented with many toys let alone BDSM. Slowly, slowly I have introduced new products into the bedroom which me and my partner have both loved and hated. We started with simple toys and restraints and we have researched a little bit together about how to experiment safely with BDSM products.

For the past few months, we have been experimenting a little bit and we both seem to be enjoying it quite a lot so I knew as soon as I showed her the skirt I was given she’d be keen to give it a go. We had a hotel booked in Canberra for a night that week so we decided that would be the perfect time to first use it. We packed a few toys to experiment with as the back of the skirt allows for easy butt play.

My Experience Using The Open Back Skirt

We went out for a nice dinner by the water and went back to the hotel to have a few drinks before setting up the bed with all the toys we planned on using for the night. I didn’t expect it but watching and helping her put on the skirt was actually my favorite part of the night, she asked me to help her tighten and tie up the back end of the skirt and honestly, it is just such a wonderful feeling being so connected to someone and having them trust you completely, mentally, sexually and physically. There are a lot of things I struggle with because of that horrible vulnerable feeling, so that experience opened my eyes a lot to all the things that this girl trusts me with when it comes to her mind and body so I’m now starting to work on doing the same for her. She stood up and showed me how it fits nicely along her waist, the butt slightly pocking out and enough give at the bottom for her to move her legs around a bit. She told me she liked the feeling of the material more than she expected to and loved the way it looked on her… I definitely did too!

Without getting into all the details the skirt easily allows for all sorts of butt play and it was super easy for us to try different positions, just make sure to choose the sizing carefully because if it is too tight then it might be a little bit of a struggle with certain toys and sexual positions as it will be quite uncomfortable to move around in. Having the rope on the back to adjust the tightness of the skirt is a massive bonus because when attempting to get into different positions it can get quite restricting so make sure to loosen up the rope a little bit before moving so you don’t end up wiggling around like a worm trying to get into a different position.

We both enjoyed the open back skirt a lot so I definitely recommend it whether you are a beginner or an expert in BDSM. Even if you are not into BDSM but are looking for a new or different style of lingerie, this product could be a good start. Bdstyle has a huge range of products that are available on Adultsmart and in our Oh Zone Lifestyle Centres so make sure to check it all out before deciding which is the best product for what you are looking for.

Sex Toy Products That I Recommend

Here are a list of products I recommend experimenting with the open back skirt:

  • Crop/whip/paddle
  • Mask
  • Any of the B-Vibe range with remote
  • We Vibe Sync
  • Sportsheets bondage bar
  • Share dildo

Cleaning

For the longest possible lifespan for your product I’d recommend google searching a good hand washing method for faux leather, these methods usually are super simple and easy to follow. The benefits of hand washing would be that your product will not shrink and you will avoid finding cracks in the material.

Do not stress though if you don’t have the time to hand wash, just make sure to do a little bit of research so you can find the best possible method for machine washing so that you avoid these problems.

Enjoy and be safe ❤

I Wouldn’t Be Caught Dead In Anything But Spotlight Hosiery

Lindy Bodystocking Seamless in Black Image

I’ve always had an infatuation with lingerie. Most young women would spend money on clothes and shoes – I would save my pennies for lacy bras and underwear. The only problem with this is while everyone else was walking around looking sharp and beautiful in their new jeans and top, I looked like a bit of a dag. If only people knew what was underneath!! This is the thing I love about lingerie, the mystery. Going about your day wearing something beautiful under your clothes is a confidence booster and although no one can physically see from the outside, there is something that radiates from women who choose to wear something sexy under their clothes.

I am all for women wearing lingerie for their self-esteem and love of oneself. It’s a beautiful thing to want to please your partner by putting on something sexy but what’s even more attractive and what will lead to them being even more impressed is if you do it for yourself. Put it on and wear it with pride as you go about your day. Feel confident and sexy in your own skin and see how this feels. I almost guarantee that your partner spontaneously finding you with a lacy bra, G-string, thigh high stockings and a garter belt under your work dress at the end of the day is going to be a far more exciting experience then planning it.

Wearing lingerie is all about one thing… building your self confidence!!! It should inspire you to feel empowered and sexy. It is normal to feel a little strange if you are not used to wearing lingerie or being seen in your intimate apparel by your partner but ultimately it should not be something that makes you feel uncomfortable or awkward. Be proud of your body and relish in dressing it beautifully.

My Favourite Lingerie Brand

Spotlight Hosiery by Well Knitter is a favourite brand of mine for sexy, good quality and affordable stockings and bodystockings which are perfect for wearing under your favourite dresses and outfits. They have a large range suited to many tastes and look great with or without clothes.

The stockings come in a wide variety of patterns and styles from the thigh high lace top stay up stockings which are super sexy with a garter belt to the full coverage black spider web design which are funky and unusual-perfect to turn a plain little black dress into a quirky outfit.

My Favourite Products

My personal favourite Spotlight Hosiery products are the thigh high stockings with a built-in garter belt. I make an effort to show every woman coming through the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres these incredibly sexy stockings as, without wanting to sound overly dramatic, they will change your life!! So many woman agree with me and walk about super excited to try them on.

They are perfect for women who love stockings but complain of an itchy derriere as the space means if you’re sitting down for a long period of time they are not going to rub and irritate your skin like the full coverage stockings often do. Another amazing pro of these stockings is that if the opportunity arises to partake in some intimate times with that special someone, you will both enjoy the fact that they do not need to be removed.

Body stockings are amazing not just because they look really beautiful, sexy and help with self-esteem, they also add to the sensory experience of intimate times. Both partners can enjoy the texture of the stocking at the same time as taking in the visual feast of their partner wearing a cut out, uniquely designed outfit. Spotlight Hosiery have so many choices of body stockings, including a floral fishnet design with strings connecting the stockings to the torso part or a full length, crotchless, long sleeve stocking.

The Spotlight Hosiery Range also feature some gorgeous short dresses, teddies and stocking sets which I am sure you are going to love. Some designs are available in different colours such as pink, red and white if you feel like stepping away from the traditional black.

Spotlight Hosiery Sizing

The Spotlight Hosiery Range by Well Knitter are available in One Size only, this being the only downfall in my opinion as curvy women greater than a size 12-14 miss out. They recommend these products to people 90-160Lbs (That is 40-72 kilograms). As a reference, I am a pear-shaped size 10. They fit well and most of them are very stretchy however I have found that one pair of stockings with the in-built garter belt were just a little bit tight around the thighs. Luckily my petite sister was more than happy to help out and take them off my hands! They are so affordable that I keep adding to the collection every week and have only had the one pair be too tight. If like me you feel a bit unsure about whether they will fit your body if you’re a bit on the curvy side, I say take a chance and try them out!

It’s a fun and exciting thing to wear sexy stockings and outfits, the Spotlight Hosiery range being a perfect option for women on a small budget to play with this. Come into the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres and check out these products!
