Our 2005 Rubber Ball preview issue features fashion by Fierce Couture, the hot West Coast latex label Fierce Couture making its UK debut at this year’s Skin Two weekend, plus lots of other great fetish style from Britain and Europe, and fascinating features on everything from Goddess worship to pervy podcasting!
Our cover for issue 53 celebrates the impressive profile achieved by Tressa Williams’ Los Angeles-based latex fashion label Fierce Couture in the last year, and also reflects the hard work of one of the fetish scene’s most travelled models, KumiMonster.
OUCH! London's new erotic gallery, Midori does Coco and a fresh cup of Coffee
Kumi is not just the star of our cover shoot with LA photographer Kelly Lind - she also shot with a whole host of European fetish designers and photographers for this same issue.
Fierce Couture, incidentally, make their UK debut at this year’s Skin Two Rubber Ball and Expo, where several more of Kumi’s fashion collaborators will be appearing.
Catch ‘em all if you can!
As befits a Rubber Ball preview issue, Skin Two 53 has plenty of great fetish fashion from exciting new labels and old favourites.

Along with our Fierce Couture cover story you’ll find hot styles from such rising Euro stars as NoPainNoGain, HW-Design and SavageWear photographed by the likes of Christophe Mourthé, Erik Hansen-Hansen and Gilles Berquet.
British design is also well represented with the return to our pages of Skin Two Clothing and Inner Sanctum (the latter photographed by Martin Perreault), plus our first Breathless fashion feature from Peter Felix Kurtz, while Italian photographer Paolo Frunzio gets lustful in space with DeMask.
