I don't know what started it all for me. I remember looking at porn in my teens and running across the picture of a guy in a zentai on some obscure japanese website screwing around.
This fetish has yet to really take off in the USA. There are these things called Morph Suits which are available widely in the UK. People buy them, wear them to sporting events(in team colors), even run marathons or bike races in them. It's always been viewed as a pretty "Euro" thing, although I've been told by friends who go to college football games, hockey games, etc. that you can find people in the crowds wearing these to show support for their teams colors. It'll probably catch on slowly here, like everything else.
There's a whole contingency of fetishists into Zentai located in Japan and China as well. I wonder why this is? Whatever the case may be, I'm jealous of the spandex parties I've heard of/seen advertised on Japanese websites. Can you imagine a whole zentai orgy?
During Minneapolis Pride, some of our kinky friends (PuppyBullet, TorchedStud, ColoBondage28Boy, and others) flew out to join us from Denver. A certain very gracious dom with a dungeon hosted a couple parties/mixers for the MPLS boys and the Denver boys to ....um.....get to know each other. Imagine my excitement when I walked in and found this happening:
Can anybody guess who's who?
I swear....we can get this fetish to take off in this country YET.
