Can't help but wonder whether there might be some connection between what seems likei increased interest in spanking and the fashion trend that has been going on for some time that calls attention to or emphasizes women's buttocks.Back in the 50s and 60s we saw the coming of leggy attire- mini-skirts, short shorts,hotpants. Now its showing off the buttocks that seems to be in vogue- the latest manifestation being the yoga pants craze. They are even more revealing and suggestive than the tight denim jeans that were already aroundMaybe it started in the mid-70s when the "tanga" or string bikini came out of Brazil, and then evolved from being merely "cheeky" to the thong that exposed the entire butt. And g-string bikinis that look like something a burlesque stripper would have worn, Nowadays what is considered a conservative swimsuit is like as not to be showing a small slice or arc of butt cheek.And of course thong underpants entered the mainstream, a fashion that previously would only have found on sale from "adult" buisinesses like Frederick's of. Hollywood.And the fad of wearing jeans or slacks so lowslung that the thong was exposed, which was really big in the 90s and early part of this century. Don't see much of it anymore. At one point it was something schools and workplaces had to deal with in their dress codes.And shorts- have gotten shorter and shorter, no longer like with the short shorts of the past that only completely bared the legs, now so short the cheeks of the bottom are showing, the so-called booty shorts.And of course we now have celebrities that are famous for their butts. The Kardashian sisters come to mind of course. Jennifer Lopez. Lady Gaga. Miley Cyrus "twerking" and flaunting her nearly bare bottom. The Miss BumBum pageant in Brazil, not your standard bikini contest but a competition where women in thong swimsuits strive to see who has the best butt. And what are best described as "butt models" like Vida Guerra and Nicole "Coco" Austin.A perusal of Google images quickly shows what I am saying. Just type in any of these women's names, or something like "floss bikini butt contests" and you will be overwhelmed with pictures, probably dozens of Kim Kardashian's rear end alone being shown off in a thong bikini. (And how delightful it is to imagine a wooden paddle be applied to it, a long and painful session that would leave her not wishing to sit for some time!)Whether its a micro-bikini, yoga pants or a slinky formal evening gown for an. awards presentation, there is one thing in common- the buttocks are going to be noticeable!I wonder, is it just a coincidence that this part of the female anatomy has gone public as it were and what seems to be a wider interest in spanking,consensual adult spanking.Go to. spanking story sites, like the Library of Spanking Fiction,you'll find plenty stories of spankings that involve in one way or another what could accurately be called " Spanking Fashions."
