For many people, sex is primarily about sensation - and BDSM is no different. While leather, PVC and latex are the most common material-based fetishes, there are plenty of room for others as well! Silk clothing is sometimes fetishised, partly for its smooth feel but also for the associations it brings with it.
There's something inherently decadent and luxurious about silk, which means it sets off the look and feel of many scenes beautifully. Clothing isn't the only way to use silk, of course! Silk restraints and silk bedsheets are also excellent ways to bring this unique sensation into your fetish play with ease.
