Skin Two is a fetish magazine covering aspects of the worldwide fetish subculture. The name is a reference to fetish clothing as a "second skin".

The magazine was founded in 1983 by the publisher Tim Woodward and the photographer Grace Lau.[1]

Published in Britain and circulated throughout the globe, they provide information about fetish fashion, events, people, and news. A major concentration of the magazine is latex and other fetish clothing and the people and events related to the wearing of this clothing and alternative fashion in general. Frequently the articles cover the parties where people wear fetish clothing. There is also a lot of information and features on fetishism and BDSM in general.

The magazine has also provided the stepping stone 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 company that publishes the magazine has now diversified into a range of fetish-related businesses, including fashion.[2][3]
