Dark says: “The magazine will not cease publication, but it will go back to fetish’s roots.”
“SKII success was its undoing. It tried to get people to accept rubber as fashionable and normalized somewhat. That’s what happened. With the internet all these mom and pop shops opened up, people got to do their own soft core porn without fear using digital media and video and pay for view rubber soft core and hard core porn site and SKII became a gossip rag for the fetish glitterati and less about getting people to accept rubber as fashionable and edgy. And then there were the pop culture adapters who made rubber de rigeur for being a pop tart.”
“Rubber may not be seen on every main or high street, but there are no barriers anymore except the ridiculous price, the fact that the stuff is ‘delicate’, expensive to maintain, hard to get on and off, uncomfortable to wear, a problem wearing in sunlight and so forth.”
“With my new editorship, I hope to bring fetish back to its roots: to closets, basements and bedrooms across the world, and move away from the ‘glitterati’ and frivolous partygoing that’s infected our subculture.”
“Our first cover model, Latex Lady personifies Skin Two’s new ethos–a modest woman living out her fantasies in her home, unseen and unrecognized even while traveling in full latex.”
We got a copy of the first edition and has published the cover. We will miss the old Skin Two and its original owners, but we wish Dark the best with his new magazine.
