Latex is a type of rubber that is extremely popular within the fetish scene.

It is considered to be among the best materials for making fetish clothing, both for males and females.

Latex is also used for making hoods, bondage equipment and items such as sleep sacks.

One reason why latex, and other tight shiny fabrics may be fetishised is perhaps that the garment forms a "second skin" that acts as a fetishistic surrogate for the wearer's own skin. Latex and PVC can also be polished to be shiny and can also be produced in bright colours, adding further visual stimulus to add to the physical sensations produced by the material. The tightness of the garments may also be viewed as a kind of sexual bondage. The smell[citation needed] of latex rubber is also a turn-on for some rubber fetishist
