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.
Exploring New Fetishes
Even though it was the same model, shot in the same setting by the same photographer, the end result was so different to anything we’d done before. Together we created a ‘voyeur’ set. Our intention was to capture the essence of many fetishes. They include:
Unaji (nape fetish), upskirt fetish, hosiery fetish, downblouse fetish, foot fetish, bra fetish and dangling heel fetish and more.
The Best Tickle Fetish Toys
In some BDSM kits, the feather ticklers that are included aren’t fit for purpose; they supply a bit of relaxing fun for someone who’s on the receiving end but that’s all. If you want to tickle someone properly then a different kind of equipment is worth considering. Real enthusiasts of tickling do without mundane feathers or little pieces of coloured fluff. They know precisely which tickle fetish toys will yield the desired results. In fact, Mother Nature has amply provided us with a wonderful variety of organic options.
Putting hosiery on properly requires delicacy and patience. Special care must always be taken with the thin material to avoid it ripping open accidently. There are things you can do to limit the possibility of damage, of course. Sometimes, no matter how careful you are, those precautions let you down. Getting a ladder in your tights is never less than frustrating
Summertime Sadness for Hosiery Fetishists
The warm weather has arrived, finally. I can appreciate the increased exposure of firm cleavages and long bare legs to greedy eyes on the street. While many pedestrians are thrilled about seeing more naked skin as they walk around, I cannot help but feel a little sad at the spectacle. As a devoted hosiery fetishist, the rising temperatures can only mean that my passion for wearing sheer seamed stockings, fishnet stockings and suspender belts will have to be put on hold again until autumn returns. I just adore going out dressed in extravagant lingerie. I enjoy wearing a short skirt over the top of stockings and suspenders especially. The feeling of my naked thighs stroking against each other with every single step of my high heels arouses me more than I can explain. It can be a real challenge to wear stockings and suspenders properly. It requires time, precision and no small amount of effort to get them looking just right. If they’re seamed stockings it’s even more complicated but its always worth it. That means ensuring that the seams are perfectly straight and that the stocking tops are at the identical height at the top of both thighs. Then it is essential to attach the clasps of the suspender straps with perfect symmetry. You can’t achieve this yourself without a full-length mirror. Alternatively, having the painstaking hands of an attentive sub simplifies the process completely. Recently, I discovered the solution to the problem of stockings and suspenders for lazy […]
An Afternoon of Foot Worship
‘Sit down and close your eyes’, he says, pointing to a black leather sofa. I obey, a little surprised that he wants to get down to business as soon as I arrive at his office. He covers my eyes with a blindfold and I sigh. Suddenly I feel a lot more relaxed, because from this point onwards, I know that I won’t have to do or think about anything; I can just lie down and enjoy some superior quality foot worship. He unties the laces of my red Converse and takes them off with great care. I notice the cold temperature of the tiled floor through the thin fabric of my white socks. Then, he grabs my ankle and raises it before resting it on his shoulder. I sigh again and throw my head back, relaxing even more. He grabs my other ankle, but instead of putting it on his other shoulder, he holds it firmly, making me feel like his prey and I start to notice my arousal. Photos by Lourdes Ribas Moments later, he releases me and begins to peel my sock off very slowly, as if he were undressing me. My socks suddenly seem to have the same significance as a pair of panties. I can feel the cold air against my skin and then a breath of hot air from his mouth that takes me by complete surprise. I feel his warm wet kisses on my skin as each new piece of it is exposed. As soon as […]
I was pleased to discover recently that I was the proud owner of four hundred pairs of panties even though I prefer to “Go Commando” whenever the opportunity arises. The origin of the term “Going Commando” is disputed but what isn’t open to question is its meaning and that is getting dressed but leaving your panties behind. I must confess that, for me, there is nothing quite like the sensation of a cool breeze caressing my nakedness and reminding me of my pantiless condition. Each cool stroke is surprising, invigorating and arousing. Letting my lady parts breathe is not just a way to stay stimulated and sensitised either. There is a body of opinion that believes going commando to be a healthier and more natural state of affairs below the waistband. I am not convinced that this is always the case when wearing full-length jeans or trousers because the circulation of air is somewhat restricted and a humid, subtropical, environment might be encouraged. Even under the most ideal of conditions, going commando is not a habit that is entirely free of risk. This is especially true during warm weather when silly, flimsy, skirts are being worn.There is always the threat of a “Seven Year Itch” moment when an awkward up-draft or unexpectedly strong breeze could encourage your skirt to blow upwards before you have an opportunity to press it back down over your obvious nakedness. Someone who is easily shocked, or apt to be turned on, would be left in […]
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
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
When I was trying to find my ideal suspender-belt, I discovered-very quickly-that it was a much more difficult task than I had imagined. All of the ones that I looked at first were vulgar, unflattering and ordinary. I wanted something that wasn’t going to date or go out of fashion and I realised that with retro fetish lingerie you really can’t go wrong. I found my perfect suspender belt: Its vintage, six-strap, design was sophisticated, flattering and timelessly seductive. I was even happier when I also found the perfect panties to wear in the shoot. The “Seven-Til-midnight” floral lace shorts, which were bought for me, have a lacing detail at the back that flaunts the derrière cleavage perfectly. When I attached the black retro seamed stockings and looked at myself I felt like a 1950s pin-up girl rehearsing cheesecake poses for an automobile calendar. The kinky way to wear suspenders is to have the straps inside the panties so you can peel them down without wasting time unfastening first. For me, the best thing about wearing any suspender belt is the feel of my naked thighs touching each other when everything else is clothed and covered.

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.

Why I Love Mismatched Underwear – Venus O’Hara
Most women imagine that the classic image of a suspender set with a push-up bra is what gets their man going. However, research has proven that this couldn’t be further from the truth. It has been established that the wannabe stripper look doesn’t really work. So, why are lingerie shop windows full of expensive, matching sets if men aren’t convinced by them? Men are uncomplicated creatures. Whether it’s a simple white set-up with a sexy bow, or some cute polka dot pants, the items that really score big with them are those that suggest innocence and fun. Mismatched underwear is perfect to feed in to this need because it plays along with an important male fantasy. After a solid night of sweet loving, a man likes to imagine that the girl is so overwhelmed by his performance in bed that she’s put on mismatching underwear to stagger out of his room. For me, mismatching underwear says : ‘Yes, I’m hot enough not to conform to your fashion rules, my friend.’ I know that men prefer mixed-up bras and panties that don’t match because I’ve asked them. They told me that mismatched underwear makes them focus their attention on the bra, panties and stockings one at a time and spend longer looking at each piece. That means their gaze is fixed on those important parts that the underwear is designed to flaunt for much longer. Underneath all the sexily chaotic disorganisation of my clothes in this set, there is a kind […]
The Growth of Long Hair Fetish
The long hair fetish is particularly important to those who associate it with a woman’s animal nature, with the unruliness of female sexuality. Trichophilia or hair fetishism is a paraphilia in which the subject of the fetish becomes sexually stimulated in the presence of, or is compelled by, human hair. It is most commonly head hair that becomes the preferred object of this fetish. Arousal may occur from images of long hair or by watching or touching very long hair, hair cutting, long fringes, red hair, wet hair or new hairstyling techniques that exploit its potential. Long hair fetishism seems to be very common, since there are a great many web sites and forums devoted to it. These interest groups are based in numerous countries which indicates the global reach of this kink. Scientific studies have established that long hair has played a vital role in any animal species’ natural selection. Long, thick and healthy hair is frequently a sign of fertility, youth and represents unavoidable reproductive value. As human hair grows slowly, long hair is visual proof of several years of a person’s health, status and fitness. Hair length has, over time, become firmly associated with female attractiveness by men as well as women. I’ve always had long hair and I love it, especially now that it’s nipple length and so versatile as a fetish material to adapt use and enhance features such as my neck, shoulders and face. When I’m deep in thought, weighing up options or just […]
Thigh-high boots are considered by many to be erotic or kinky. They are used as fetish clothing in boot fetishism and shoe fetishism. Cheaper thigh-high boots are often associated with prostitution or sadomasochism. The image that they portray is so powerful that it has been adopted by the mainstream fashion industry. Thigh-high boots as articles of fetish clothing date back at least to the 1950s when Irving Klaw used them in the costuming of the models in his erotic photography, including Bettie Page. Since that time, they have been a staple of fetish and adult photography. In the summer, I cut an old pair of jeans down to make some shorts. I looked at the denim legs I had left over and, instead of throwing them away, I had an idea of how to use them in a photo-set. I decided to play around with the idea of thigh-high fetish and this is the result. Featured photography by Stephan
The hoodie fetish went mainstream on every news channel, in every country, this summer. Between 6th and 10th August, numerous London districts and – in a series of copycat incidents – other cities and towns in England saw widespread acts of rioting, looting and arson. When I saw all those feral teenagers out shopping aggressively in high street sports shops, electrical retailers and designer boutiques I thought to myself “it must be cold over there because everyone is wearing a hoodie”. Watching four nights of the mayhem on TV and online must have been a dream for the hoodie fetishists among us. They didn’t need to make excuses or feel self-conscious about their obsession as all of those hoodies filled the blazing, night-time streets – their only problem was that they were spoilt for choice about which one to fantasize over next. A hoodie is a sweatshirt with a hood and a very large pocket in front. It is capable of carrying those essential items for when you’re out on the street. Not only a symbol of street individuality, but a mark of brotherhood with friends, the hoodie has become unfairly associated with gang culture. Modern British media prefers to view the hoodie as a piece of primitive tribal clothing commonly seen in large quantities around street corners, public toilets and McDonald’s restaurants in town centres up and down the country, and almost certainly in any recently-stolen car. Instead of being a functional piece of casual-wear, the hoodie is seen […]
The Act of Spanking – Venus O’Hara
The act of spanking consists of one partner striking the buttocks of another with a bare hand to cause temporary pain and erotic sensation. When an object is used instead of a hand, spanking becomes paddling, belting, caning, whipping, birching or hairbrushing depending on what is used. Spanking, when used to develop a role-play scenario, becomes much more than just punishment.The intensity of feeling and the mutual understanding of the spanker and the “spankee” easily adds another layer of excitement and realism that increases the enjoyment of any fetishistic characterisations involved. For example, the fantasy of a disobedient schoolgirl being punished by a strict headmaster is never as rich without the consequences of it glowing across her displayed bottom. For the “spankee” the anticipation of being spanked can be especially arousing because the next contact can never be predicted exactly.They could tense their buttocks in preparation which just stimulates their genital area more. The slap, when it comes, reddens the bottom, warms it and improves the sensation. Suggestions for spanking positions can include over the knee, bent over a chair, on all fours or face down on a bed or a sofa. Other variations can mean the “spankee” hanging over the shoulder of the spanker or lying on their back with their legs raised towards their chest. There are ways to improve the spanking experience that add even more to its delights. The spanker can confuse the “spankee” by stroking and caressing his or her “target area” and contradicting their […]
Knee-length Socks Fetish
Welcome to the debut post of my brand-new fetish photo-blog. Here, in the near future, you will find regular updates containing my ideas and reflections on featured kinks with accompanying photo-sets that, I know, will illustrate my points in a more immediate and exciting way. I really can’t wait to guide you through the amazing variety of fetishes that are coming this way very soon. Knee-length socks are perfectly fetishistic in the way they affect the meaning of the most ordinary of garments. The semi-sheer chiffon blouse I wore in the photo-set clung closely to my shoulders and felt like I was wearing solid nothing. My pencil skirt suggested my curves but nothing more. Pulled down tight, it met the top of my patterned knee-length socks and the coverage was complete. Even standing in my discount heels, the image I projected was perfectly prim and proper. Then, I took hold of the skirt and pulled it up. Just a little bit. As the firm expanse of my soft, creamy thighs appeared between the top of the socks and the hem of the raised skirt I was transformed by that one small movement. What was prim became informal and what was proper became indecent. This is just an introduction to the world of fetish and it represents just the first post in a long list that includes the occasional kink you might have heard of, many that you haven’t and some you couldn’t possibly imagine. Photography by Andrew O’Hara Enjoy!
