While snooping around for Swan Lake links, I seem to have discovered a fetish that is new to me, petticoats . Doesn't it make perfect sense?

John Money , who researches sex and gender issues at Johns Hopkins, talks about the development of "love maps", in which early eroticized experiences become the basis for later sexual attractions and interests.

I once knew a man whose mother played, "This is the Way the Ladies Ride" with him. He mounted her foot and she rocked it gently for ladies, more vigorously for gentlemen, and wildly for Indians. Needless to say, this was before political correctness reached our awareness. He was erotically stimulated. As these were the olden days, his mother also wore nylon stockings while she played. As a consequence, he was fixated on stockings as part of his adult erotic experience.

You can absolutely see how petticoats became eroticized for children of the 50's. All those toddlers spending time under the dining room table, watching their fashionable mommies rustle crinolines.

Photo note: The resemblence should be obvious. Isn't it amazing that I had one of these in the archive? Also a legitimate excuse to use yet another phlower photo.
