Lots of talk by Warren Ellis and Xeni at Boing Boing about a Japanese underground weirdness that’s also a weird offshoot of cosplay: people that get off wearing a latex max to look like a real anime-type character. This of course gets mixed up with sex, and strangely enough asphyxiation. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, this might clear things up. Boing Boing has quite a few despcriptive posts on the subject with lots of links. I don’t know what has brought this up so suddenly with them, but it’s something I’ve seen in the past, sometimes featured on late-night TV variety shows.
