This is store is probably my favourite store. They have a good selection, the staff is helpful, and the atmosphere is relaxed and sexy. Most Mr. B. stores have somewhat the same articles and the same design. The staff in Amsterdam makes the big difference. It is difficult to point out exactly what they do in Amsterdam compared to for instance Berlin, maybe a more relaxed attention to the customer. The balance between getting personal space without being left alone is just right for me.
Another nice feature, if you can call it a feature, is that their workshop is also located in Amsterdam. So, when they didn’t have the leather pants I wanted in my size, it took just a couple of hours to get a pair from the workshop. Just enough time to relax and grab some pancakes with cookie filling, from one of the Creperies in the street.
The products they sell are mostly of their own brand, but they also have some fetish articles from other brands. There is something for every taste, also rubber, neoprene and sportswear. I myself love the leather items with stitching on the sides, like the belts and ties. It is a nice detail. When I think about it I have a pair of boots from this store as well. They are the only pair of high boots I have tried that fit strait of the shelf. It should be said that this is not a cheap store, but the prices are reasonable when compared to other stores with the same quality and service.
If you are going to Amsterdam, this store is definitely worth a visit. Remember that if you want tax return (if you are from outside the EU, like Norway), you need to bring your passport.
I love jockstraps, I wear them as often as possible. It might be fabric or leather. Rubber jocks are also hot, but more on others than on myself – from my point of view at least.
I have a several from Bike, and a couple from Nasty Pig. I must say I like the ones from Bike the most, but it might be because those I have from NP are a bit too thick in the fabric. I like to be able to see the contour through the fabric. It also has to be comfy since I use jocks for long periods of time.
When it comes to leather, I look for something different. It should be quite plain and masculine. I would not buy jocks with spikes or other metal elements, it is just not my thing.
The worst part of a jock is the elastic, I do not know how many times the elastic has frayed. Also just after first use – really annoying. It might be that the elastic is better on NP, as those I own are intact.
That is what I like to wear. On others the material isn’t that important, it is the nice frame the jock gives the ass and the easy access.
Give me a hot ass in a jockstrap any day!
Cockrings is mostly used to keep your cock hard for a longer time, but for some of the rings are more a part of their gear then for keeping blood in the penis. Maybe fasten to a harness or a jockstrap. In any case it is hot.
If you have never used a cockring before, you should find your size. The easiest way is to use a measuring tape and measure the girth of your cock (while hard) and balls at the root. Take the number and divide it by PI (3.1415) then you get the required inner diameter of your cockring. For instance if you measure 15.7 cm, you will require a cockring with 5 cm in inner diameter.
I recommend buying rubber rings with small thickness in some bigger and smaller sizes. Then you can easily cut it off with scissors if it is to small and not letting the blood back. It is a bit embarrassing going to the emergency room to ask for help to remove a steel ring.
As always there is a lot of different designs and materials. For instance steel, rubber and leather. The ring itself can be thin (3-5 mm) or thick (>10mm). Thick steel rings might also be in different finishes, like brushed and engraved. So you can always find something cool.
