Is “lockable clothes” an oxymoron? Is it something what exists only in dreams, forum posts, bondage and fetish tales? Let’s have a closer look.
What is lockable clothes?
In the fetish context, “lockable clothes” is “something wearable” you can’t easily get rid of but what is quite noticeable for the person who is wearing it, for public or for both. “Noticeable” means the following:
- Fetish clothes, piece of clothes or a fetish attribute is in clear view
- The clothes or attributes constantly remind the wearer of their presence
- The clothes or attributes limits the wearers abilities
Fetish clothes is anything publicly considered as “fetish”. For example, latex, plastic, vinyl, TV/CD clothes (pantyhose, stockings, swimsuits, leotards, dresses, high heels, etc).
Fetish attributes are any accessories, tools and devices related to bondage and fetishism (cuffs, collars, cuffs, vibrators, plugs, gags, binders, etc).
Examples of “noticeability”:
- Shiny pantyhose under shorts or capri, latex suit under an open coat, (latex) swimsuit in the swimming pool, latex gloves, pantyhose worn on hands/arms, a collar, cuffs. It can be more severe like high heels, a dress (for men), masks, gags etc. In this case the wearer must hide him/herserlf from public
- Latex suits, latex tights, latex stockings, corset, plugs, stretchers, tight harnesses, chastity devices, erection rings, vibrators, clamps
- Chastity devices, plugs, closed pants/suits (you have to take them off or pull out to go to a toilet), gags, blindfolds, arm-binders
Basically, lockable clothes is just another (very light, sometimes more mental, than physical) bondage or self-bondage method intended to spice up your daily life.
How inescapable are lockable clothes?
Everything can be broken. Whatever you can put on can be taken off, no doubts. Even if it’s made out of steel. Just use the proper tools: metal cutters, diamond disks, milling cutters, ultrasonic drills, saws, you name it. If it’s plastic, it can be broken, melted down with a soldering iron, sawn off. If it’s fabric or leather, than it’s a question of finding a good scissors.
So, the bottom line is – it’s all about the time, money, convenience, skills and energy. The proper definition should be “Clothes you can’t just take off”. The key is the word “just”. And your ability to compete with the four factors.
If you have no energy to search for the “emergency exit”, no brutal force to break the fetters, you simply give up, accept and stop fighting. You stop caring if someone sees you wearing latex or black fishnets (if you’re a man), you stop trying to get off if you are wearing a chastity device, and you piss down your pants (or throat, depends on the used devices) if it’s a “toilet deprivation” suit.
You must have some specific skills to pick-up a lock, saw off a hasp or slip out of the devices/clothes without using any tools.
Even if getting rid of an annoying item is as easy as taking a rubber leotard off or taking a plug out you still need a secluded place and weather conditions to do that. A public toilet or bushes, for example. But imagine yourself showing up in the office with a sweaty latex pile and a smelly butt-plug ;-)
Of course, you can cut easily cut through rubber or lycra, but are you willing to part with your precious pieces of made-to-measure latex garment? Your choice…
This is the last and the most important factor. If you are patient enough or the previous 4 factors failed for you, you can just wait until the release is available. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet to cope with cramps, sweat, urge or public attention. But this is exactly what the lockable clothes is about!
