Wants to Make Your Basket Presentable

Harold Ivey is a kindly old man who runs leatheroaks.org, a website dedicated to his massive, decades-long love affair with leather. Obviously being into leather is about the most mundane fetish out there, but what sets Harold apart from the rest of the jamokes on Folsom Street is the sheer quantity of leatherwear he owns and the fact that he tailored a large amount of it himself. He’s also the inventor of JockUps, homemade jockstraps with gargantuan, stackable cups that can morph your middling mound into a mighty massif of mountainous manhood.
Vice: I like the navigation on your site. To go forward or back you click a photo of a jockstrap with the bulge facing either right or left. Is that your dong up there or a stock dong?
Harold Ivey: Well, I wouldn’t use the word dong. Actually, it was one of my favorite leather jocks. It was one of the first that I made.
What are you wearing right now?
I’m wearing a Squirm suit. It was made for the guy who runs rubberzone.com. His nickname is Squirm because he’s always in rubber and usually in bondage. Basically it’s just a triathlon wetsuit. It’s a neck-to-ankle one-piece suit, it’s just very, very comfortable. You’re constantly feeling the rubber—the close contact all over your body. I’m also happy to be wearing hip waders. They make this nice sound when you move in them.
