If you're a vegan/vegetarian, you should probably stop reading this review right now. I'll be talking about leather pants, skirts, catsuits and so much more that it will knock you right out of your hemp-fiber shoes. However, if you think leather is erotic, you'll really want to hear more about Leather Fixation.
Ever since Catwoman slinked across the pages of my comic books and into my heart, I've had a leather fetish, so I was pretty glad to see LeatherFixation hanging out in my queue. The lovingly shot photos of beautiful babes with pale skin, red lips and black leather around their hips made me even more eager to sign in and once I did I went straight to the videos.
Getting there was incredibly easy with the handy bar of links on top. However, the site itself looks pretty dated and with all the movies on one page I was scrolling and scrolling and scrolling just to get a look at everything, which was rather annoying.
I couldn't stream any of the 237 videos, but I could download them in a Windows Media format. The newer additions have an iPod-compatible MP4 format and the very new ones are HD MP4s. The WMVs bring you mostly good-quality playback, but at least the camera always consistently lingers on the leather.
I got to see a brunette masturbate through the slit in her black leather bikini, another gal zipping up a motorcycle jacket over her corset and a blonde getting in and out of her catsuit. Considering the fixation I previously mentioned, I'm sure it will surprise none of you that the latter was my favorite. It has lots of closeups of zippers being pulled down and you can hear every creak and squeak, as well as the cameraman's voice telling her what to do in a British accent.
The photo section is even larger, with around 900 galleries. Most of the time, the categories are organized by clothing, so if you prefer leather skirts that are so tight the wearer can't move, skip the "trench coat," "jacket" and "lingerie" sections and head right into the "skirts." There are also special areas for gun-toting gals and Femdom.
Many of the pictures are high-res and there's a Zip download option for newer galleries, so you've got to save the older sets shot by shot. I did notice that some sets provided material for multiple sections, but it looked to me as if the individual images were different in each.
You also get two bonus sites: Ladies In Leather Gloves and Girls In Leather Boots. It looks like new videos are posted about three times a month and there are some usability features and a streaming format lacking. Still, Leather Fixation should please those who are hung up on hide.
