Fetish wear in the 1920s looked a hell of a lot like fetish wear now

These photos show the designs of Yva Richard, the foremost purveyors of fetish gear and BDSM accoutrements in France from the 1920s through to the early 1940s.

Originally founded simply as a lingerie company, the husband and wife team behind Yva Richard first branched out into erotic photography in 1923.

Nativa modelled their increasingly daring designs, while her husband L. Richard was behind her camera.

By the 1930s they stocked a range of products that wouldn’t look out of place at a modern fetish event, including handcuffs, dog collars with leads and “bizarre dominatrix ensembles made of leather, rubber, and even metal”.

Yva Richard’s one major commercial rival, Diana Slip, was also based in Paris. The only significant retailer of fetish wear and photography in the US at the time, Charles Guyette, imported many of his products from France.

Yva Richard was forced to close up shop in 1943 due to the Nazi occupation of France, but its significant influence is clearly visible in modern day fetish fashion and photography.

Turning down a scene or kinky proposition isn’t a sign of weakness, but its opposite—strength. It means you know yourself, your desires, and needs enough to stand up for them—and I daresay that will make you a better top, bottom, dom, sub, and/or lover.

- Rachel Kramer Bussel, from the intro to Tristan Taormino’s 50 Shades of Kink (via cleispress)

Doing Your Dirty Work 3 - Opens Friday at CSC - special creature feature-    Tyler Cohen


If you find ink line work sexy, if you find curvy and loose yet controlled line work in vaguely surreal, open-ended narrative drawings sexy– if you can see the rhythm of a hand that knows how to hold a brush and is quite comfortable with her pens, you might just become a fan of Tyler Cohen’s artwork.


Few are truly called to be ink fetishists working on paper. You have to be partly masochistic. There is no undo button. Fuck undo buttons. There is no eraser. You live with your lines. (Ask me how I know.)


The both images are from an ongoing body of drawings entitled the Primazons. Tyler calls herself anthropologist of the Primazons who “have evolved into their own culture and have become multigenerational” (quote is from Tyler’s bio). I see her as a philosophically-based world maker. She began with thoughts on relationships among women. From there it grew into a world of creatures with their own customs, rules (and rule breaking) and palette. It’s a world we can see on the page but if we want to eavesdrop on the Primazons, we must use our own imagination and projection—there is no text. It’s also a world that is evolving, like her and like us. Come have a look and eavesdrop with us this Friday.
