Interview with the Designer of the Bolero Straight Jacket


For my first assignment for I got to interview the designer of the Bolero Straitjacket by, J Mysterioso. An excerpt follows, but to read the full interview, please click here!

Ms Nikki Nefarious: I find the Bolero Straitjacket to be a must-have for fetish play as it draws in the feel of leather against bare skin, the binding sensation of bondage, and of course the thrill of medical play. Was it your intention to create a piece specifically to cross multiple types of fetish play in one, or is this just a happy result of great design?

J Mysterio: Of course I’d love to take all the credit, but really this design was the result of trying to create something new through re-inventing existing designs. When I first joined Stockroom as an Assistant Designer I was a still in design school and was a bit intimidated of the industry as a whole, so rather than try to create new designs for fetish arenas I wasn’t familiar with, I pulled the best elements of some of our top selling items and molded them into one within a new form – and thus the bolero was born.

MNN: Not only does the Bolero offer access to the breasts and torso but it also eliminates the crotch strap, making sex play readily available without removing the straitjacket. The traditional straitjacket has been used in the fetish world for a very long time and has become somewhat of a staple in medical play. What made you decide to change up the design? What was your inspiration?

J M: I’ve always found straightjackets fascinating but impossible to make sexy. It was a personal design challenge of mine to make the bolero appeal to the female demographic, so my focuses for the piece became a snug fit, a sexy silhouette, and above all functionality. All in all it took about 4 months to complete the bolero design feeling confident we had met all those goals.
