Titleholders

   

2015 - Max Samauth

Max Samauth is the 18th man to wear the Mr. International Rubber sash having secured the title during the contest held in 2014. Previously he held the title of Mr. Rubber Netherlands 2014. His attraction to rubber began with movies and the characters of aliens and other fictional creatures who inspired him.


2014 - Andy "CosmicRoo" Coatham

Andy “CosmicRoo” Coatham, the current Mr. International Rubber and Mr. Rubber Toronto, found his start in fetish at a young age wasting a ton of electrical tape in the privacy of his bedroom. As he grew, so did his fascination with tight garments through icons like the Power Rangers and Dean Cain as Superman. Their tight-fitted attire led him to discover the world of rubber at 18, when everything changed.


2013 - Rubber Jason


2012 - Sly Hands

"I'm originally from a nice little seaside town in Devon and Currently live in Manchester where I do photography and design. I was always fascinated by Rubber from a young age. It started with leather when I was about 5 when I really wanted a little pilots jacket, the brown leather kind with wool inside and patches all over. I wore it all the time until I out grew out of it and when I was about 11 I bought a black leather biker jacket off my friend for a whole £7 I'd saved for weeks. A proper T-Bird style jacket!"


2011 - G-Man

G-MAN is proud to have brought the MIR title back to the US and also to be the first international title holder from the South.  He was born in Virginia to a career military officer and he now claims the Atlanta, Georgia area as his home, though he grew up living in Florida, Rhode Island, California, Mississippi, Virginia, the Phillipeans and Japan.  (G-MAN attributes his love of rubber, in part, to watching Japanese superheros on TV; they all sported latex & spandex costumes.)
