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.
