Like zentai-inspired fashion, rubber-clad nuns are an immensely popular facet of the underground fetish community. Rubber nuns are clothed in latex or leather nun uniforms, and frequently also wear a gas mask.
The subversion of a nun, a paragon of religious virtue, by the latex fetish community is both fantastic and messed up. No wonder this underground cultural icon of a nun in a gas mask is found in art that ranges from street art to sculptures. Chances are good that if you start looking, it won’t be long before you see your first rubber nun.
I am just upset that I did not think of ‘rubber nun’ as my Trend Hunter name.
