Did anyone happen to watch CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Sunday night? It’s a great show, but I gotta tell you Sunday night’s episode was way over the top for me! A real mind blower. It dealt with the murder of a ‘rubber doller’s and the subsequent investigation took the team into the crazy world of ‘rubber dolling’. If you’re not familiar with the term ‘rubber dolling’, you’re not alone, I didn’t have a clue. I’d never heard of ‘rubber dolling’ until Sunday night.
After watching the entire show I began to wonder if this rubber dolling phenomenon was the real deal. But then I figured since it was taking place in Las Vegas, the sin city, a place that’s notorious for feeding the wants and needs of everyone including every kind of sicko, weirdo, pervert, I came to the conclusion that maybe this rubber dolling craze wasn’t really so strange or out of place in Vegas. Wanting to know more I quickly did a Google search and discovered that what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas. Rubber dolling is real and it’s worldwide! As hard as it is to believe there are people out there who are really into this shit.
What is rubber dolling exactly? Well, rubber dolling is another in a long list of sexual fetishes that had its start some twenty years ago in Germany. Rubber dollers take what transvestites and cross dressers like to do for fun and take it a step further. And believe me, it’s not a baby step but a giant leap! Simply put rubber dolling, also known as masking, is a fetish in which men want to acquire the appearance of a doll so they dress up as female rubber dolls. However rubber dolling goes far beyond simply dressing up like a doll. Rubber dollers wear a rubber latex, seamless, full body suit and a face with eye, nose and mouth holes. It’s sort of like wearing a skin divers suit. I suppose that rubber dolling could be seen as a form of extreme cross dressing. The key element of the experience is to completely conceal their real identities.
With the advent of a more realistic, supple, rubber latex, the rubber dolling phenomenon exploded. For as little as $850 for a basic model to $1500 or more for something more elaborate, any man with the dream of being a woman can purchase their new female form. The body suits are made to order and usually have Barbie doll type features. Most are exaggerated with huge breasts, thighs or hips, very tiny waistlines and exaggerated facial features. Many other, more personal options are also available. Encased in their latex exaggerated and accentuated bodies men can become the women of their dreams and live out their fantasies. Odd as it may sound there are many participants who want to actually become women and enjoy the experience without having to go through the difficulties and cost of transgender surgery.
No one knows for certain how many men are involved in the practice of rubber dolling because most do so alone or in small private groups or clubs, like the one shown on CSI. However, that is changing. In recent years more and more rubber dollers are leaving the comfort and privacy of these clubs and appearing in public. If you haven’t seen one you probably will soon enough. Estimates put their number in the hundreds of thousands worldwide. I can’t even imagine. I tell you, this really bothers me. It’s a strange, sick world!
