Good morning lovelies. To quote from Disney: “It seems I've been thinking…a dangerous pastime, I know.”
What have I been thinking about? Well, aside from whether or not I really want to spend the money to do my closet over, I've been reflecting on MedFet. One of the members had posted a ton of links to different images and someone commented ‘I like the vintage ones best’ or words to that effect. Made me realize I did too which got me thinking - why? Is it because I like old styles and hairy hoo-hah's? No, not really. I mean I LOVE hairy men but while hair on a woman doesn't bother me or anything I prefer some sort of grooming. Victorian styles yes, I like very much, but once the ‘oh I remember those’ wears off, I can do without the 70's clothing. So what was it?
The innocence around nudity. At least one of the drivers for me was the ‘forced’ exposure. The doctor was legitimately one of the only people you were supposed to get naked around if you were a good girl and there was this, understanding for lack of a better term, that it was safe to do so. But what if it wasn't? For this little girl, way hornier than was good for her from an early age, that ‘what if’ was tantalizing. And then something actually happens which, at the same time, freaks me out and forever locks in the sexual aspects of the fetish.
So what's my point? I think the key factor is the nudity. We (people of a certain age) were told nudity was bad. No one should see you and your body was something that had to be hidden except here you are at the doctor and you have to strip and do whatever he tells you even if it hurts. That's not the attitude towards nudity I raised my kids with nor is it the attitude we had towards doctors or other professionals. That mystic power is, for the most part, gone or is lessened. You still see the Larry Nassers but the difference is that bastard eventually got caught, he isn't lauded as a wonderful human being like that asshole who abused me is.
Nudity has gotten pretty casual. I've several kids/stepkids and grandkids. There's a beautiful mommy photo of one of them, very pregnant, very nude. It's quite tasteful and beautiful and captures a lovely young woman glowing - and is something my generation would NEVER EVER have done. When I was raising my sons I didn't flaunt being nude around them but neither did I freak out if I was and they saw me. We weren't nudists but we also didn't try and hide our bodies and there's no real privacy when raising kids anyway. If, as a child, I walked on on a parent who wasn't dressed I'd get yelled at. We just asked ‘what do you want’ and continued getting dressed.
So is that attitude about ‘nudity is shameful’ necessary for a fetish like this to develop? Is that the reason that there's a higher percentage of Boomers here than younger people? Why are the vintage pictures ‘better’? Is it because it's easier for you to imagine the patient (especially if she's female) isn't comfortable being exposed? The element of coercion, even ‘soft’ coercion that makes her expose herself to the doctor - and possibly secretly enjoy it? If, like the younger people of today, nudity becomes less taboo, less overtly about sex, does that diminish the power exchange?
Something to think about.
