Interview on Yuhmm.com

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 25, 2010, 2:46 AM
From Yuhmm...
"In order for subcultures to thrive from one generation to the next, participants need to become passionate innovators willing to shape its future. Fortunately, a new breed of fetish models have emerged bringing a fresh perspective to the culture. One such model to take notice of is the beautiful Mosh who has quickly found herself in front of the lens of many of the best fetish photographers..."

Thank you Yuhmm.com!

Cheers!

I see it a bit of a pity when 'fetish' has become such a buzzword that its just a adjective now, having little to do with actual participation with the fetish community or activities. Its a very grey line, where the ambassadors of kink to the vanilla world stop, and the poseurs begin.. where S&M begins to mean 'Stand and Model' and nothing more. After nearly 10 years as a fetish performer myself, I am guilty of some aspect of this as well, something I didn't realize then but see more now as I continue to integrate it into my own life.

I am not sure where you fall on this sliding scale. Certainly, there is a role for good imagery in increasing overall acceptance of the genre. I dont think I have ever seen you play, never see you attend community events. Are you a fetish model? Sure. Are you a part of the fetish community? I haven't seen that. Its a pity the article has such viral issues as I would be interested in reading more. Perhaps there are aspects of you that I haven't seen.

Still, congratulations on your success and being so adept at making the system work for you.

I highly disagree with you.
Since when does participating in the fetish community and activities define you as a fetishist? Remember in the 50's when it was incredibly taboo and kept a family secret? The way people would indulge themselves in it was at the privacy of their own home, and through small fetish magazines like Exotique and Bizarre. Some people still do that because they choose not to attend event, either because they wish to keep it private, or don't want to share it with other fetishists. Some no longer partake in fetish events because they feel that the scene has changed drastically.

I do in fact have a fetish for latex, corsets, stockings, etc. I model these, which are fetishes for other people as well. Therefore I think I fit the "definition" of fetish model. I have performed at a few public fetish events, and just because I don't attend an incredible amount of them does not make me any less of a fetishist. Its incredible unfair for you to make that kind of judgment on myself and others. Like I said before, some wish to keep their fetishes at home and primarily in front of the camera. My images are placed through fetish magazines and alternative culture magazines, which are placed in the hands of fetishists who love seeing ladies wearing such of the items I've been modeling. I have posed in bondage, in latex, leather, and lace. I've covered a broad range of fetishes for those to enjoy. So yes, in my own way, I am part of the community.

I do like attending fetish events when I can be a part of them in some way, backstage or on stage. Due to my limited time I don't usually have the opportunity to attend them whenever I want. Usually I'm booked for them at least a month before they actually happen. Many require you to pay out of your own pocket to perform (ie costume, props, travel arrangements), right now my funds are tied up with my own projects (heel line, latex line, and more).

Thank you for the kind words but please don't make such judgments on other fetishists who you don't think are part of the community in a physical sense, they may be a part of it in so many other ways. This includes myself.

All the best.

Interesting that you took a direct offense to an accusation, when none was made. Read carefully. To be honest, my statement was more a reflection of the marketing used, and stating clearly I didnt have enough information to make a judgment on you.

Yes, suddenly, everyone wants to be a fetish model, performer, photographer. Everyone suddenly wants to be the biggest and the best, in a big rush to define a movement that goes much further back than either one of us have claim to. (No, I cant say I remember the 50's.. I wasn't alive then.. but damn you must age well!) Fetishism, goes way beyond you, or me.. its a time honored culture, which mainstream media currently exploits, and will invariably discard once it has been cheapened enough.

Still, living in a culture which is more accepting of depictions of violence to women than than of lovemaking (based on our movie ratings), I welcome art which encourages acceptance and exploration to be sure. I certainly see you contribute to that. I don't do the public events as much anymore and certainly that doesn't invalidate who I am either.

Everything is open for exploitation in this day and age. Nothing is sacred anymore. The main stream will do what it can with what it is sees and will over emphasize, over glamorize, wrongfully immortalize, and/or abuse what it deems worthy of being in the public eye.

As time progresses now, what was deemed taboo quickly becomes vanilla due to how the proclivities of millions become more extreme and attention spans, depending on where you are, become harder to impress.

Fetish, fetishism, and fetishist are now becoming common house hold products and names. It becomes cheap, yes. But cheap can also mean "available".

Fetish culture is in the public eye now and has a public place. May not be as public as a typical bar but its there for those who want it, love it and/or live it. Be it just the aesthetic of fetishism, the idea of fetishism or the act of fetishism.

Indeed, and well said on many points.

Its an interesting balance. I was a big part in increasing accessibility, to the chagrin of the old guard. Now I see the torch being passed, and perhaps see more of the other perspective.

I agree! While I haven't done any fetish modeling, never been in a fetish club and have never worn latex doesn't mean that I don't have and enjoy fetishes. Everyone that has a fetish, be it in public or private, is a part of the community and contributes to sustaining it and allowing future fetishists to partake. You should never judge someone by the small glimpses you get from the outside looking in.

Nuu~ I want to read. I tried, but the connection aborted after Avast stopped three Trojans that tried to connect from that site. There's something on that page my antivirus doesn't like, that's for sure. And others, it seems, by the comments.
