Men’s underwear made from leather and lace provides the wearer with a sensual touch against his skin. The materials are dark and sexual, both with tactile appearances that demand to be touched. Leather underwear can sometimes have a wet look with its subtle shimmer – made sexier by the material’s practically vacuum-sealed level of tightness, in which you can see the outline of nearly everything. Lace underwear, on the other hand, plays up your own skin and gives it a nubile innocence. You can see through it easily, but good luck looking past it.
The second half of The Underwear Expert’s “Kink” photo shoot by Jerrad Matthew plays up lace and leather underwear. The fetish-friendly materials are again covering Jared North’s nether regions, and again push underwear boundaries (at least for some). The leather underwear and lace make each underwear style erotic. But while “dark” and “erotic” are both things each material has going for them, their sex drives head in different directions.
Leather underwear is more likely to have a masculine design, whereas lace underwear, even for men, is bound to hang on to some femininity. Still, lace underwear, such as the Gregg Homme Blacklace Brief, reads as a strong masculine pair of underwear. If fetish gear that is 100% masculine is more your thing, Male Power (check out the name) has more than a couple leather bodysuits, complete with studs and straps.
