Guest:
Preston Wexx
Preston “wexx” So is Mr. International Rubber 20 (2017) and Mr. New England Rubber 2016. He is the first international fetish titleholder of Asian heritage, the first Mr. International Rubber (MIR) of color, and a member of the New England Rubber Men (NERM) and Emborrachados (Rubbermen of Brazil). Preston is also a co-founder of the Mr. Rubber Mexico (est. 2017) and Mr. Rubber Brazil (est. 2019) contests, respectively the first rubber competitions in Latin America. He also served as emcee for Mr. Rubber Mexico in 2018 and for Mr. Rubber Brazil in 2019. Preston has been interested in latex rubber since 2007 and has actively practiced the fetish since 2010. He taught other students about leather, latex, neoprene, spandex, and other similar fetishes at Harvard College Munch, the BDSM student organization at his alma mater, at a time when the group was publicly vilified by Bill O’Reilly on Fox News and the Harvard College Republicans as a university-funded “sex club.” During his title year as Mr. International Rubber 20, Preston evangelized latex fetishism in 13 countries and 24 cities around the world. The first MIR to visit Latin America and East Asia, Preston believes everyone should feel confident to gear up in public and is proud to practice his passion by wearing rubber out regularly, especially where fetish gear is taboo or seldom seen. He enjoys mentoring new rubberists regardless of their gender or sexuality, especially through workshops at Cleveland Leather Annual Weekend (2017, 2018, 2019) and DV8/Purple Passion (“Latex Fetishism 101”) about latex care, latex fetish practices, and the experience of Black, Indigenous, and people of color in the fetish community. In 2019, Preston was honored to judge the International Mr. Leather (IML) 2019 and International Pup and Handler (IPAHW) 2019 contests, representing fetishists of Asian heritage. Previously, he delivered the keynote at International Olympus Leather 2018 in San Diego, where he spoke about the importance of visibility as a person of color in the kink community. He has appeared in mainstream and kink media in German (Box Magazine), Brazilian Portuguese (iGay no iG, BLUBR, Rádio Agita Planeta), and English (Vice.com, Watts the Safeword, NoSafeWord) to promote latex fetishism and inclusion in the fetish community. Currently, Preston continues to serve the rubber community and kinky Black, Indigenous, and people of color as a contributor to Recon.com and Recon Magazine, writing about latex fetishism and the Asian experience in kink and fetish, and as the founder of the Asian Leather Alliance, an antiracist affinity group for folx of Asian descent in the kink and fetish community. As Mr. International Rubber 20 and a rubberist of color, Preston’s mission is to rubberize the world—to bring the latex fetish to places further afield and especially to unawakened rubberists. He still gives his time to these efforts today as a volunteer interpreter in multiple languages, as a co-producer of new events, and as an organizer of emerging communities around the world.

Pup Kase
Pup Kase is the IPTC International Puppy 2018-2019. He is also Heart of The South Leather Puppy 2017-2018 and International Geared Up Pup 2017 runner-up and fan favorite. Living in Atlanta, he is fortunate to serve the puppy/handler community in the Southeast and beyond. One of his proudest moments in his journey since 1990 is creating, and being one of the founders of, the League of Atlanta Pups. Identifying as a red & white Irish setter, he does very well on task, however, if he is left unattended his mischievous side will take over. If you lose him, just check the nearest cage where he may have locked himself in with your belongings or maybe even the nearest bar drinking other peoples drinks.
