PVC (or polyvinylchloride, or vinyl) is a plastic polymer that's used to coat fabric to create a glossy, waterproof surface, whereas latex is a form of rubber that creates a more restrictive feeling. PVC makes a great cheap alternative to both latex and leather, has a much lower risk of causing an allergic reaction, and is often found in fetish or BDSM-inspired outfits.
But how do you know what is the best PVC outfit for you? Keep reading for our expert tips and top recommendations.

A clit clamp is a simple sex toy designed to gently squeeze the clitoris and provide thrilling arousal without vibrations.
They can be worn during masturbation, foreplay and even sex, making them super-versatile. During wear they offer direct stimulation where you need it most, and when removed they leave the clitoris super-sensitive to subsequent touches.
You'll sometimes see clit clamps referred to by different names, such as clitoral clamps, clit jewellery, clit clips, pleasure clips, Cleopatra's clip, genital clamps or any variation of these, but don't worry. They're all the same thing.

Many also find their partner's personal preference often influences their own choice, but when it comes down to it, the decision (and the razor) are entirely in your hands. If you are, however, in the staggering 92% of women and 83% of men who primp their pubes in some way, then just read on for our finest styling tips.
