The Skin Two Rubber Ball is the world’s premier fetish party. Established in 1992, the Rubber Ball drew people from around the world to a glamorous celebration of fetish style, with fashion shows, art performances and celebrity guests. The event is now internationally famous; it has been featured on television in Germany, Holland, France, Britain and the USA.
In recent years, the Rubber Ball has been joined by several supporting events, making a whole weekend of fetish partying. We often link up with other London clubs, to offer a varied programme lasting several days. Guests from many countries plan their visit to London months in advance.
The Skin Two Expo is a major part of the weekend – a daytime shopping fair, with over 120 specialist retailers gathered in one place. You can shop for clothes, shoes, accessories, jewellery, equipment, furniture, clubs, holidays, art, photography, books and lots more – or meet friends for coffee and a chat.
The theme for this year’s Skin Two Rubber Ball is World of Fetish. Think American rubber cheerleaders, rubber kimonos, pvc lederhosen, cowboys and girls, go vintage with an old England ball gown and corset, military uniforms from around the world, middle eastern belly dancers, rubber sahris, or go dark and twisted and match your outfit for The Underworld room… The only limit is your imagination – just keep it fetish! With 7 differently themed areas, DJs, live bands, acts and a well kitted dungeon area it’s a fetishists playground.
This year’s events are:
Friday 5th October – The Skin Two Expo @ ExCel
Friday 5th October – Torture Garden @ Mass
Saturday 6th October – The Skin Two Expo @ ExCel
Saturday 6th October – THE SKIN TWO RUBBER BALL @ SeOne
Sunday 7th October – The Finale @ tbc

Shot on location, Project LATEX LAND completed shooting on Sunday June 17th. Eight sets were shot, featuring between 8 to 40 real latex enthusiasts set in a parallel reality populated by colourful fetishists dressed in latex from head to toe, performing regular activities. A massive undertaking to say the least involving over 70 cast and crew members and shooting in several locations throughout the city of Montreal, Canada. While being a photographic project, the whole production was very similar to a cinematographic project with several production vehicles including Coach Buses, Mobile hair & makeup suites, Catering service trucks, Grip & Lighting trucks and on and on… a veritable little Latex Army!
Artistically, PLL creators Martin Perreault and Gil Perron were well served. “the response from both the local and international community was overwhelming” says Martin. In fact, this project relied exclusively on real life latex lovers and heavy rubberists as its cast, the idea being that it was all about showing the true believers in a very different light! Gil continues: “The international response came as something of a shock, we never really revealed the contents of the concept and yet, people from all over chose to jump on a plane and spend some time with us”. Indeed! People showed up from New York city to as far as Sweden and the UK! A Sweden cast member sent the following testimonial after his Latex land experience: “I made the longest journey of my life to come to Montreal and viewing back I only can say that it worth the effort. I met many wonderful people and was warmly welcomed, and I am really grateful for that.”
The scenes themselves ranged wildly in flavour and settings but it was obvious that nothing was left to chance. One scene involved a large scale dinner at a fancy restaurant… and everything was perfect, from the “fake food”, table settings, and over 25 friendly pervs in latex! This type of extravaganza was repeated for every scene. While Martin and Gil wish to keep the contents of the project somewhat secret until the official Premiere Exhibition August 31st 2007 during the Montreal Fetish Weekend, we can safely say that the final imagery, while being completely out of the standard fetish repertoire, will offer visuals on a scale never attempted before in the latex scene. The exhibition will offer, without a doubt, a sensational experience.
