Maskulo is the brand of fetish gear for men manufactured by the company founded in 2014. We are an openly gay-owned and gay-operated company from Russia. We have a strong ambition to develop our brand worldwide. Located in the heart of ‘cold’ Siberia, we are a part of international trade system: we choose the best suppliers of fabrics no matter where they are situated in then we develop our creative designs, manufacture our clothes and ship them worldwide using the fastest means of international express mail services.
Maskulo brand idea is shown in the catch phrase 'Masculinity exposed'. For us it means that our fetish stuff — be it made of shiny neoprene, stretchy lycra, latex or spandex — makes any man feel sexy and attractive. We make a lot of efforts to create clothes that increases sex appeal of the one who wears them. You know that any person is attractive by his manly nature, right? The only thing left to do is to highlight the right spots. That’s why we offer neatly handcrafted leggings, wrestling singlets, shorts, T-shirts, tank tops, jockstraps, boxer briefs and accessories made of the best materials with passion and attention to kinky details.
Remember, sport clothes CAN be fun and hot, you just have to choose what looks best on you. And we are going to help you with that. Our team consists of courageous and creative people — a clothes designer, a tailor, a logistician, a sales assistant, a photographer, a brand designer and a brand manager — who work for your pleasure and …human rights.
We are a Russian human rights supportive company. A part of our profit is donated to democracy and human rights organizations in Russia.
Our founders Artem Smyslov and Bulat Barantaev are the supporters of such organizations as Russian democratic movement ‘Solidarnost’ (Solidarity), Russian democratic party ‘Parnas’ (Abbreviation for ‘Party of people's freedom’), civil movement ‘Za prava cheloveka’ (‘For human rights’), ‘GORD - Homosexuals, relatives and friends’.
The democratic movements stand for freedom of media and internet, honest elections, openness of the government, democratic values. They attract public attention to fraud elections, administrative pressure to electors, are revealing corruption of the federal and local authorities, rallying to oppose the silly international politics etc.
‘GORD - Homosexuals, relatives and friends’ movement in Novosibirsk organized a range of rallies and attracted a lot of attention from the press because of the ‘scandalous topic of homosexuality’. Maybe its existence was the reason for the local deputies to promote the law ‘Against homosexual propaganda’.
We respect the saying of Martin Luther King: ‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win’ — and we think that this just means that Russia is on the third stage of this saying.
One of Maskulo founders Bulat Barantaev also took part in the last elections (September, 2016) to the Russian parliament as one of the first openly gay candidates in country's history - and publicly opposed to Putin's regime. It has produced the large number of publications in TIME magazine, INDEPENDENT newspaper, and some other magazines as Attitude, Têtu, Advocate and others.
