The upskirt fetish has never been as popular as it is today, I found this out for myself, accidentally, in London a few weeks ago. I was in Covent Garden when it was windy and, as I walked around a corner, a sudden breeze lifted my short skirt up before I could push it back down. The smiling tourists got a brief glimpse of my panties and, although they were sympathetic, I still felt exposed, on display and vulnerable – it wasn’t like Marilyn Monroe’s iconic scene in The Seven Year Itch at all. Upskirt photography used to refer to fetishists making unauthorized images under a young woman’s skirt to capture candid shots of her thighs, underwear and crotch area. If they were lucky, they might even find that she wasn’t wearing anything underneath. The start of this fetish can be traced back to the introduction of the miniskirt in the 1960s and the opportunities it provided for upskirt fetishists to realise their fantasies just by walking along the street. Now, the upskirt fetish has gone mainstream. This can be seen in the amount of paparazzi pictures featuring celebrities like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan getting out of cars and showing their underwear and – often – much more than that. Some of the time these panty-flashes are accidental but most of the time they aren’t – there’s nothing picture editor’s and publicist’s like more than a revealing upskirt photo to sell more magazines. I thought about this […]
Modern leg fetishism has been with us ever since the end of the Great War. After that, skirts began to rise, revealing the calf and then the knee. Thick unflattering stockings were replaced by silk at the same time. Men became sensitized and drawn to the previously taboo feminine charms that, up until that point, were hidden from their gaze.
Like foot fetishism, leg fetishism relies upon many separate areas of erotic interest contained in one part of the female body. The classic fetishistic male experience is to discover, through voyeurism, the visual attraction of legs from the feet upwards until a skirt imposes a barrier that leads to speculation and tension about the hidden portions.
Knees, and then thighs, are discovered by eyes and hands the closer someone gets to the sexual act itself so the exploration of the leg is an essential ritual that forms part of adolescent courtship and necessary erotic education.
Although denim jeans and tailored trousers have replaced skirts in many ways, young women are still encouraged by the seasonal fashion industry to make the most of their legs. Specific clothing and lingerie, designed to take advantage of their intrinsic fascination for men have become more and more specific, with stockings, long-socks and thigh-high boots adding an increasing variety to the ways in which this fetish can be enjoyed.
Choosing the right panties
It’s never easy to choose the right panties to wear for the day ahead. Sometimes it’s impossible to choose sensibly, especially if you’re a panty fetishist like me and you own over a hundred different pairs. In that case, the task is almost impossible. There are a few factors that must always be taken into consideration: Most women choose panties that seem similar to the bra that they are wearing, even if they only have a vague resemblance. I love the mismatched look and I always go for it. It’s really important to choose undies that work with your outerwear and not against it. For instance, panties with frills or ruffles never work and should be avoided outside of a photographers studio or someone’s bedroom. Any panties that encourage cameltoes are never recommended at the best of times. I also wonder how many girls take the time to do a proper “whale-tail test” in the morning. If they don’t, then everyone standing behind them in a supermarket as they lean down into a cold cabinet to find some frozen peas, will wish they had. It’s also important to consider whether your choice will be seen by anyone else, whether it’s a lover, doctor or paramedic. For me, doing sport means wearing comfortable panties, doing a photo-shoot requires something a little over the top and my heaps of designer underwear fit the bill perfectly. If I mean to seduce, my panty choice could be anything from simple cotton to lacy black […]
There’s nothing like the feel of wet stockings clinging to your legs. After you’ve stepped into a puddle-and got your chosen hosiery soaking wet-you long just to get home and peel them off. I point my feet forward when I get the chance to remove them, understanding-in that moment- what foot fetishists find so fascinating. That always comes later, after the walking. Strangely enough, you are far more aware of the wet sensations as you walk; the tingling in the feet, the colder temperature on your skin and the knowledge that you’ll get more and more uncomfortable in your clinging, transparent, stockings whatever you do and wherever you go. It’s different with hold-ups-the silicon in them makes them stick more, not less. I’d been wanting to do a wet clothes fetish set for a long time and when I finally had the chance it was nothing but fun. I adored the feel of the wet white blouse clinging to my braless breasts, my hard, urgent nipples and the see-through panties stuck onto my bottom. Whenever I got too cold I could just sink back into the warm water, lift my wet, stockinged legs upwards, scrutinise them and feel relieved that I didn’t have cankles to worry about. I want to do more sets like this and it won’t be long before I have another chance to indulge myself. As much as I love the wet clothes fetish, there’s nothing quite like the moment when I get the chance to finally […]
See Through Clothing Fetish – Venus O’Hara
See-through clothing is any garment made with lace, mesh or sheer material that allows the wearer’s body or underwear-if any-to be seen clearly through its fabric. Before the 1980s, this type of clothing was still a taboo, even in the most popular celebrity and fashion forums. The trend changed in the late 80s as a result of the powerful influence of top-rated television soap operas like Dallas and Dynasty. In the 1990s knickers and bras became extremely brief, almost non-existent. Finally, although still seen as controversial, see-through materials have been featured heavily in catwalk fashion collections since 2006. In this set I explored the potential of a transparent black dress to reveal and conceal at the same time. The fabric stretched and gathered across my body in tight, but sheer, folds and, although I felt dressed, under the lights I knew my naked breasts and nipples were always on show and that my straightened red hair shone brightly. The effect of the thong was even better than I anticipated, it was hardly there and was more teasing when seen through the dress than if I had been naked.I felt the sheer material clinging to my legs and, with the high-heels, it only made them appear longer and more elegant than ever.

The Joy of Going Down – Venus O’Hara
There’s no secret to the best way of getting a blowjob. If you want one, guys, you can’t just expect to get it when you feel like it. You have to earn it by going down and convincing her, in every way, that she will always come first. I was writing an article for GQ Spain called “10 things you still don’t know about women” and one of the points I made was that men still don’t go down on women nearly enough. I wanted to illustrate the point with some appropriate photos and these ones seemed perfect for the job. The tight panties I wore in the shoot were sheer and left little to the imagination. With my long red-straightened-hair, 80’s style make-up and see-through blouse I rolled around the throw and urged my hips and derriere forward, emphasising the centre of attention, as I thought about the joys of going down on someone.

My Fishnet Fantasies – Venus O’Hara
Fishnet fetish has made its own niche in the world of sexual fetishism as a significant kink with unique associations. Fishnets is hosiery with an open, diamond-shaped, knit often used for stockings, tights and bodystockings. Fishnets cling close to the skin and emphasise every curve while, simultaneously, flattering and perfecting the shape of the wearers legs. It makes them appear sleeker and longer because of the repeated pattern. When stroking the surface of legs wearing fishnets, a fetishist’s hand feels resistance from the knit along with the smoothness of skin beneath it; the contradiction of textures is never less than arousing. The shoot was planned as a featured part of the Pecha Kucha Event where Yuky will be presenting a photographic project on the imagery made possible by transparent clothing. He chose me as the featured model and I had a great many ideas about how to flaunt myself through different sheer materials. I loved the combination of ripped black fishnet tights, shocking pink panties and my discount heels. I added in red nipple tassels, elbow length-black velvet-gloves and a glossy, patterned veil. Having my hair straightened made it look even longer than usual and, in combination with the fishnets and all the transparent surfaces, the effect was exactly what I had imagined.
