Skin Two was a fetish magazine founded in 1983 by the publisher Tim Woodward and the photographer Grace Lau..Published in London, and circulated throughout the globe, Skin Two magazine provided information about fetish fashion, events, parties, people and news. A major concentration of the magazine was latex and other fetish clothing and the people and events related to the wearing of this clothing and alternative fashion in general. There was also a lot of information and features on fetishism and BDSM in general. The German version of the magazine, Skin Two Germany, was started by Peter Czernich in 1987. It was closed in 1989.
The magazine has also provided a stepping stone to further success for several internationally known writers, fetish models and photographers. Notable names featured in Skin Two include Tim Burton, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Dita Von Teese and Katy Perry.
The magazine hosted a Rubber Ball for fetish-related wear and people into fetishism and BDSM in general. This was the central event in a weekend of fetish parties, held in London annually.
