It was just recently that a good friend made an observation about my fetish for blindfolds. “It seems as though the main reason you wear blindfolds is so that you don’t have to see the men that you sleep with” She said. I agreed that sometimes it was true, but that it wasn’t always that simple. Since that night, I’ve been thinking about blindfolds a lot. When my eyes disappear behind one, it isn’t just my ability to see that’s affected. With my eyes covered, I can immerse myself in a private fantasy world. A simple touch suddenly means so much more. What seems like just a relaxing caress from fingers I can see becomes thrilling and charged with excitement when it involves ones that I can’t. It’s impossible to anticipate their intention or predict their next movement when I’m behind the blindfold. I don’t need to think at all. I can be perfectly selfish and deliciously passive for a change. [nggallery id=62] Photos by Yuky Lutz
In Japan, Thigh Fetishism has inherited a specific term to describe it. A recent poll about the favourite “secret fetishes” of Japanese businessmen found that the most popular one was zettai ryouiki, which, when translated means “absolute territory”. In other words, they fantasize most frequently about that piece of exposed flesh between the top of a girl’s thigh-high socks and the bottom of a short skirt. This description fulfils the fetish principle in that no nudity is involved. Zettai ryouiki describes an otherwise mundane detail which, when used as a primer for arousal, assumes a sexual significance that is almost impossible to explain for non thigh-fetishists.
The same principle applies to Western men and the expression of their own thigh fetishism when it comes to lingerie and hosiery. Stockings and suspenders make these men’s enjoyment of thighs and their understanding of thigh fetishism that much easier. The combination of panties, a suspender belt and stockings isolates the area of exposed thigh and almost draws a border around it. This focuses the attention on the naked skin as oppose to the erogenous zones that are covered, albeit by material that is often sheer. A garter belt is another magnet for thigh fetishists, as are knee-high socks, thigh-high boots and self-support stockings.
Thigh fetishism has produced a new variation of itself recently and social media has had a lot to do with it. The trend for promoting and desiring a permanent clearance between the tops of the legs has become a social phenomenon and a modern yardstick for feminine health and beauty. This ‘thigh gap’ is more common, anatomically, in women who are naturally much taller and whose body mass index is lower than the average. The physiques displayed by contemporary fashion models are an obvious ideal where the ‘thigh gap’ is concerned.
A much more democratic trend in relation to thigh fetishism has also arisen on social media almost in response to the ‘thigh gap’. ‘Thighbrow’ describes the naturally-occuring crease between the thigh and the hip that appears when you sit or kneel down. Two of these, when observed together, have been said to resemble eyebrows. Whereas the ultimate ‘thigh gap’ seems to be exclusive to young women who wear size 6 jeans, the ‘thighbrow’ is a fetish highlight that everyone can flaunt.
Suspension bondage appeals to fetishists because it makes the person being suspended seem more vulnerable if they are unable and unwilling to escape their restraints. By trying to free themselves they could fall to the floor and injure themselves so their anxiety is magnified. Being suspended in a large open space also turns a helpless, submissive subject into an object whose complete powerlessness can be as erotically satisfying for themselves as much as for any spectators watching. Rope suspension can be a form of performance art at BDSM conventions and fetish-themed nightclubs. I was fascinated by the suspension shows I saw at some of those clubs. I prefer pain-free suspension rather than the kind that uses hook and chains.It was on Bogatell beach in Barcelona where I saw a rope climbing frame and thought I’d try suspension for myself Even though high-heels aren’t recommended to wear on rope climbing frames they were perfect with my matching black boy-shorts, transparent long-sleeved top and hold-up stockings which emphasised my pure-white, naked thighs for all those appreciative fetishists out there. It was a real challenge hanging up there with my fiery red hair hanging down and blowing in the warm breeze. I had to rely upon my strength alone to support my body but I was more than up for the challenge I had set for myself. I knew that some spectators were taking photos of me hanging there but – just to show my playful awareness of them – I posed at […]
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 […]
Wet Clothes Fetish
I am always getting requests for wet clothes fetish sets. Tacky holiday resorts often host wet t-shirt contests to attract an audience. These competitions feature attractive young women wearing thin, white t-shirts being drenched in warm beer or cold water for popular entertainment because – although they’re still dressed – their breasts are completely visible. When we began shooting this set it only took me a few minutes to settle on the common male fantasy of seeing a soaking wet, skirtless secretary. It didn’t matter if she had been caught in the rain or if she had fallen into a hotel bath during an important conference – just so long as the fetish details were right. This scene needed me to end up having long dripping hair and wearing wet stockings, steamed-up glasses and damp see-through white panties. Most important of all, my blouse had to have been made totally transparent by the cold water, revealing the appearance of my shivering breasts and the size and shape of my hard, hard nipples. It worked so well and I had such a ball doing it that I shoot more wet clothes fetish sets whenever I am able, even having wet thighs doesn’t put me off. I can’t wait to share the results of those sessions with you. [nggallery id=18] Photos by Andrew O’Hara.
High-Waisted Panties – Venus O’Hara
A while ago, I wouldn’t have been seen dead wearing a pair of high-waisted panties. They were so old fashioned and unpopular that I couldn’t imagine ever wanting to own a pair. Now though, retro underwear is so in demand, particularly 1950s bullet – bras, corsets and stockings, that I really felt the lack of a well fitting pair of black, high-waisted, panties. After I found a pair and tried them on for the first time I discovered, very quickly, why they lost popularity. They’re not exactly the easiest things to put on or take off as I found out the first time I went to the bathroom. I did find an instant advantage though – they felt like a suit of fabric armour underneath whatever I was wearing. It was like having a secret outfit underneath my outer one. During the shoot I thought it would be sexier to leave out the stockings altogether and have the detachable suspender straps hanging down. Matched with a black bra, the panties almost became a body, hugging my curves and emphasising my vintage style. I wanted to get the “cabaret” look, so I put my hair up, covered it with a trilby hat and emphasised my long white neck in the mirror. The high – waisted panties looked so much like a girdle in the reflected image that I understood the power of the vintage fetish more than ever. [nggallery id=16] Photos by Yuky.
Fur Fetish on The Beach
Even for a fur fetishist like me, it seems unthinkable that I wore furs on the beach in January, especially when I feel the heat now, against my naked skin, in July. It’s easy to imagine furs in winter but, in Barcelona, it’s sunny even on cold days and instead of taking an umbrella in your handbag you’re more likely to take a pair of sunglasses instead. People always stare at me on the beach because my skin is so white and my red hair reflects the bright sunlight. Instead of an all-over tan I just get more freckles. I felt their eyes on me when I opened the fur coat. That feeling got worse when I removed my skirt to reveal tight fitting, hold-up stockings and my discount heels. It was impossible to walk elegantly on the sand with them on. When I got used to the temperature, it was time to take off the fur coat and reveal my mismatched underwear-black cotton boy-shorts and a retro, polka-dot bra. It’s always more provocative to wear lingerie on the beach instead of a bikini. Although I was wearing more clothes, I felt more exposed than if I was walking around naked. People expect to see naturists standing in the distance but are shocked to see someone wearing stockings it seems. [nggallery id=15] Photography by YUKY
