Thomas Puopolo’s excellent Summer Interlude Records today released a new Opaque tape, a C30 entitled Delirium: Down Sluts Vol. IV. The Down Sluts series began as a trilogy of releases: the brief Intimacy (released digitally through James Killick’s Maniacal Laugh – just after another Opaque release on that same label, Moncler Hermine), Sensuality and Ecstasy (the latter two both self-released tapes, a C60 and a C25 respectively). With the first two volumes released in 2015 and the third in early 2016, the series remained, conclusively, a trilogy for years. I had never even thought to expand the series into a tetralogy until Thomas got in touch. I personally felt the release could go in either of two ways thematically, so I consulted Thomas to find out what he thought, and the result is evident: the Down Sluts series now has a fourth entry.
The existence of a fourth entry (as well as the first three) owes, of course, some credit to the main inspiration: without the fetish work of Julie Skyhigh, there would be little in the way of material to inspire a Down Sluts series at all. While some down fetish porn is scattered throughout the web, most of it is kindly amateurish material with models in oversized, unflattering old-school Moncler jackets or Nuptses – nothing I find particularly thrilling. Julie Skyhigh, by contrast, has shown to understand a certain niche of down jacket enthusiasts a lot better: she presents something decidedly more hardcore, all the while adorned in far superior jackets such as the absolutely wonderful Moncler Alpin or a tight, shiny Pyrenex bomber. As such, she graced the cover of Intimacy, dressed in a Moncler Alpin, and was also featured on the covers of both Sensuality and Ecstasy – in both cases in the aforementioned red Pyrenex bomber, along with Gina Gerson, dressed in Julie’s classic black Moncler Alpin for the occassion.
Delirium features several screenshots from a more recent Julie production, in which she and co-star Lucy Cat are both dressed in magnificent Moncler jackets. It’s a shining example of what down jacket fetish porn might aspire to and provided the proper inspiration to continue the Down Sluts series, with a title that, I personally find, visually and sonically achieves what the first three volumes achieved too.
Delirium was released in an edition of 25 copies and can be purchased from Summer Interlude Records here.
