Leevi Karjalainen gets turned on by rubber clothes. The only kind of sex he’s ever had and has any interest in involves masks, ropes, spanking and latex.


Leevi lives with his parents at countryside of Kangasala. Sometimes he heads to nearby town of Tampere to attend kinky clubs - or just ordinary clubs, where he enjoys the attention his latex wardrobe gets.


Leevi’s parents are old punk rocks, and they don’t mind their son’s hobbies. He says that he is sure that if his parents would not accept him he would have grown up to be incredibly introverted.
