Why More Celebrities Opt For Leather Bondage

Leather bondage wear was once seen as something taboo that would not be worn outside the bedroom. Even then, to admit to your partner that you wanted to try out wearing some leather bondage gear for your nocturnal activities might have been met with resistance and ridicule. However, these days, leather bondage wear has become so mainstream it is even being seen on the red carpet, so how did it go from one extreme to the other?

Why Do People Like Leather Bondage Gear?

For BDSM play, leather has always been a popular choice. It is a hard-wearing material that can be found easily around the house, and this makes it easy to use for restraint. Some people enjoy the tightness of the material that adds to the sensation of BDSM play as it is a form of bondage. For others, the smell might be the biggest aphrodisiac. There are many reasons leather has been popular and remains so even today.

Gay Culture

Gay culture adopted the leather look in the 1940s and it is thought to be as a nod to the ultra-masculine look of the manly biker. Gay men wanted to make the statement that you didn’t have to be effeminate to be gay, and the leather look for gay men has been popular ever since. This look then progressed from a leather jacket to leather bondage gear in the clubs and gay hangouts of places such as New York and London. At this time, it was seen as being a political statement as well as a sexual fetish. Celebrities who are openly gay or want to make a statement about their sexuality or personal preferences have taken to wearing more leather bondage gear in recent times.

Popular Culture

Black leather has become integrated with BDSM and gay culture but until recently has stayed away from the red carpet. However, it is often seen as an erotic fashion statement. Celebrities like to shock, and this may be one of the reasons that black leather/faux leather bondage gear, like this Black Crimson Tied Regal Sub-Collar, has become more mainstream recently.

This is not actually a new phenomenon, although celebrities wearing leather bondage gear have been getting a lot of press coverage lately. Vivienne Westwood made bondage pants popular in the 1970s punk era, although leather was not often the material she used. Cotton was popular for these clothes as leather bondage gear was a little avant-garde for the mainstream at that time.

In the 1990s, Madonna embraced the leather-bondage-suit-wearing culture with several different leather bondage-style bras and a leather catsuit. She embraced the risqué sexual culture of the time and liked to shock. She made the look popular back then, although it was never copied by mainstream fashion to a large extent. It seems as if this style is being reinvented for 2021 rather than created from new.

Of course, leather doesn't have to be limited to black. This Purple 5 Piece Locking Leather Bondage Set is an attractive alternative.

50 Shades of Bondage Gear

The phenomenally successful 50 Shades of Grey trilogy pushed BDSM into the mainstream with its sexually erotic storyline of a couple who were practitioners of the fetish. Before this, BDSM was something that may have been experimented with by risqué couples but was not really talked about in polite society. These books and the films that followed changed all this. Suddenly people were reading, thinking, and experimenting with BDSM culture like never before. It was at this time that the idea of leather bondage gear left the fetish culture and became mainstream. This is one of the reasons that wearing leather bondage gear on the red carpet has become more acceptable.

Pushing Boundaries

Celebrities like to push the boundaries and shock the public. This is what gives them column inches, after all. There is precious little left that can shock the discerning reader these days, but perhaps there is some mileage left in wearing leather bondage gear over an elegant suit on the red carpet, for example, this Golden Kitty-Cat Bell Collar.

Louis Vuitton, always a designer to push boundaries, has brought out their own leather harness bondage wear that has become popular to wear as an accessory by both straight and gay men. It often follows that designer fashion wear is copied by mainstream fashion about six months later, so it will be interesting to see if this look is copied in the bars and clubs of middle America by the beginning of next year.

It looks as if leather bondage wearing is going to take the country by storm, either for its risqué shock value or just as something different in the world of fashion.
