Sinful Sunday 359 – Slough

slough : /slสŒf/ verb
(gerund or present participle: sloughing)
shed or remove (a layer of dead skin)

A few weeks ago I was hit by a skin rash that covered all of me. I’ll spare you the details, other than to answer your first question, Curious Reader – yes, all of me! – and to say that as it cleared up it left all my skin very dry. (Again, Curious Reader, yes!, all!!)

As well as applying copious amounts of emolient, to deal with the latter as quickly as possible I aquired a pair of sloughing gloves. They are more commonly sold as exfoliating gloves, predominantly to the female beauty market, but I like the word sloughing. They did the required job and I was soon thoroughly exfoliated, so they could easily have been disposed of … and yet …

Sinful Sunday

They left my skin noticably softer and smoother than usual. I liked that. It made me feel sexy. I really liked that. And I found the sensation of these coarse gloves all over my body (almost, Curious Reader, very nearly but not quite all over) to be surprisingly erotic.
I’ve kept the gloves, and I’ve kept using them.
If nothing else, I understand daily sloughing is also a good way to prevent ingoring hairs after you’ve been waxed … and seeing as my genitals and arse are long over due a dose of deforestation, it makes sense to keep them in service.

As you will know, Loyal Reader, I also have a fetish for gloves. So you will not be surprised to know, that looking down as I exfoliated by balls, it was the sight and not just the sensation that was beind my smile.

  1. I hated my exfoliating gloves the first time I used them, now I wouldn’t be without. I totally get the feely thing…

  2. Nice shot – I think you may have had hives in response to an allergic reaction perhaps ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Always nice to find things that fit one more purpose.

  4. I have no idea what exfoliating gloves are but the sensation sounds interesting

  5. OMG I totally get this โ€“ the tactile sensation as well as just the visuals of gloves. Theyโ€™re an underrated sexy accessory if you ask me. Amazing pic!

  6. If there happens to be a Korean spa anywhere near you, I highly recommend you go get a complete body sloughing sometime… it’s amazing to just lie there and have someone else exfoliate you!!! This photo is fantastic… it looks like a mime is having a wank. ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. You know, Iโ€™m not much of an exfoliator. Though I know you can get crazy soft skin when you do it, I just canโ€™t seem to find time or space to incorporate it in my (nonexistent) beauty routine

    • I wouldn’t say my beauty routine is exactly extensive – some might claim there is evidence to that effect, but I find just using soap with the gloves on kills two birds with one stone. (Obviously I take them off for the most sensitive bits. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Wonderful photo
