What is Glove Fetish?
Glove fetish is a sexual fetishism that involves articles of clothing that covers the fingers and hands, which may extend up to the wrists or elbow. The fabric and composition of the gloves often play a crucial role in Glove Fetishism.
Some people with sexual attraction to gloves are aroused by the thought of or actually wearing gloves, while other Glove Fetishists get aroused through sensory stimulation. The sensation in the skin as the gloves are either slipped on/off provides tactile stimulation. The subtle movement of hands being highlighted by the color and designs of the gloves can be a great visual stimulus for arousal. The smell of some type of gloves can also become an effective stimulus.
Glove Fetishists do not get aroused on every type of gloves they see. They may develop their own preferences based on the color, size, smell, texture, thickness and the smoothness of the gloves. Some Glove Fetishists prefer a powdered glove, while others prefer un-powdered ones.
