Is this wrong, taboo, or sinful?
I doubt the dog really sees much difference in posing nude – under a fur coat they’re all nude. But, the humans would know there’s something different about posing without clothing for a photograph with an animal. So, is this taking advantage of an animal? Is this taboo? Where are the lines drawn?
How would you feel if it were a child instead of a dog? What if the child were also nude? Yet, I don’t think it’s sinful for a parent to bathe their child and remove their own clothing to keep it from getting soaked.
There are so many interesting shades of grey.

I like the creativity of dressing up dolls in fetish clothing and situations. I have made tiny clothing for dolls before, even dolls smaller than Barbie. It’s tricky and nitpicky to get the details right and all those little stitches. I guess some people will use glue rather than sew the outfits. I didn’t.
Posing dolls is a fun hobby. Not everyone brings the fetish and kink into it. But, it does add an element of The Perils of Pauline (damsel in distress).
The photos here are from Tears of Desire, which makes and sells fetish wear for Barbie. Only two items available right now. Likely requests could be taken for more.
Men don’t seem to get a lot of great fashion opportunities in fetish clothing. So much of it wouldn’t look good on a real guy versus a male model.
This is two paragraphs snipped from the original post. It was a good post, quite a bit of history and some new things to learn more about.
High-heeled shoes, so-called “kinky” boots, corsets, lingerie, and garments made of leather or rubber are among the most common clothing fetishes. Sometimes individual clothing fetishes are combined; thus, a black leather corset might be worn with high-heeled boots and long rubber gloves. Fetishes are associated with particular sexual fantasies. Or as Stoller put it: “A fetish is a story masquerading as an object.” In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, fetish clothing was utilized in secret sexual scenarios; for example, in brothels or the staging of pornographic imagery. Since the 1970s, however, clothing fetishes have played an increasingly important role in fashion and popular culture. As early as the 1960s, the television program The Avengers featured a character, Mrs. Peel, who wore a black leather catsuit that was modeled on an authentic fetish costume. Mrs. Peel’s costume was a precursor of Michelle Pfeiffer’s latex catsuit and mask in the film Batman Returns.
Fetishism moved from the sexual underground into mainstream popular culture via subcultural groups such as punks and leathermen. A youth subculture associated with bands like the Sex Pistols, the punks appropriated fetish clothing as part of their own “style in revolt.” The fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, herself a punk, opened a shop in London called Sex, where she sold bondage trousers, rubber stockings, corsets, and extreme shoes to a clientele divided between real fetishists and young people attracted by the idea of breaking taboos. Westwood herself wore “total S&M as fashion” in the early 1970s, not just in private or at clubs, but on the street, as a way of subverting accepted social values.
Love to Know: Fetish Fashion
Parkour is a philosophy as well as physical exercise. Parkour is running, dodging, jumping through an obstacle course, on foot and without any special equipment. Parkour is also about learning to live your life in a better way.
What Parkour Really Is: The Whole Picture
Parkour is more than physical exercise or an extreme sport. Parkour is not about buying equipment or gear. Parkour is not about performing tricks or competing or showing off. Parkour is available for any level of athlete, or non-athlete.
Parkour is a philosophy about moving within your environment (mental and physical) and dealing with the obstacles you face. Through Parkour you attempt to understand and improve yourself. Parkour helps us learn to understand and help others by giving us practical skills and the methods of using them.
Parkour teaches us to move in our environment in a way where we can gain the most ground, make real progression and learn how to manoeuvre in different variety of ways.
Parkour can take place in an urban environment. Also, in forests, deserts, any outdoor element or place where there are some obstacles and space to move around them.
Parkour practitioners are called tracuers or tracueses (for women).
One is not truly participating in Parkour without the combination of philosophy and exercise. Parkour is a physical and mental exercise to improve your body at any level of ability, to give you more confidence and change how you see and feel about the world.
How Did Parkour Start?
David Belle was influenced by his Father who grew up in Vietnam as a child soldier trained through obstacle courses known as Parcours. David Belle’s Grandfather taught him about Hebertism. Both of these merged with David’s own philosophy and experiences to become Parkour.
Getting Started: Keep Moving, That’s What Matters
Move around your personal space. Look at the objects in the room differently. Find new ways to move through the room. Take a different route. Walk backwards. Twirl while you move through the room. Skip or hop on one foot. Crawl or walk on your hands if you can. Simple movements are a start. (Don’t wreck the place, go outside to give yourself more room to move).
Remember the old kid’s games where the floor became something dangerous to step on. I used to swim in the public pool and pretend the stripes on the pool floor were giant whales side by side. I tried to avoid stepping on the dark lines between the whales – the dark space between them surely went on forever, sinking deep, down into the ocean. So, I had to swim over them to the next whale.
Important techniques for beginners are good jumping and landing techniques. The roll which limits impact and carries momentum to continue forward movement is an important beginner technique to master. Beginners also learn how to fall, because falling happens. Other beginning moves include monkey vaults and precision jumps.
Don’t start leaping from tall buildings. Find your way along at your own pace. Don’t consider Parkour only as a physical thing either. Think of ways you would like to move through your life, what is keeping you from moving? Could you find a new way to move and gain progress?
Train your mind for Parkour as well as your body. Take a look at puzzles, mazes, things that make you look at new solutions to find your way.
Getting Started: Equipment to Consider
Originally, Parkour was barefoot.
Of course, one nice feature about shoes is the protection of the feet. A tennis shoe should give better traction. Shoes for martial arts are popular for being close to being barefoot. You will want a shoe which is light, comfortable, flexible with a good grip on the ground. Consider snow, rain and sun too, Parkour goes well with the great outdoors.
You could look at wearing gloves to protect your hands. But, like shoes, Parkour doesn’t require any special gear.
You need fabric that can stretch and let your skin breathe, light, casual clothing which you can really move in and sweat in. It’s also important to avoid clothing which could get caught or snag on anything and slow you down or cause you injury.

This bed doll with her poodle skirt comes from Td Creations Crochet on Etsy. I’ve also seen these dolls called boudoir dolls, a fancier sounding name for sure. The doll is not meant to be a child’s toy. She was a fancy girl, dressed up with her hair in a complicated style and her clothing […]
Commented in Chastity Fantasies of an Obsessive Compulsive : a post about nice girls and the low percentage of Dommes.
I’m a nice girl. My brother introduces me as the “nice sister” though he has 3 sisters. I babysit for my other sister, even when I don’t really and truly want to. I smile at people just to bring more smiles into the world. I really believe it is so easy to be negative and so important to be optimistic and positive in the world. There has to be a balance.
And yet, having said (or typed) all of that… I am Domme. I have such a good time being wicked and evil in this way. Maybe it’s because I am so nice. It does get a bit tiring being nice. It is particularly annoying the way people assume someone nice is easy to take advantage of and gullible. Maybe being a Domme is my bit of payback. As we all know… payback is a bitch.
I don’t know about wearing leather. I am a BBW. I haven’t bought fetish wear before. I do like showing cleavage sometimes. With a lot of cleavage to show I am select about how much and where I show it. Leather is kind of expensive to try and find I don’t care for it. I’m not overly fond of tight clothing. I enjoy romantic looking clothes more than dark and leathery.
Writing this was so much fun I am going to post it to my own blog now. 🙂
Why are we sentimental about old electronics? I’ve seen them at the Goodwill, those thick monitors side by side, the old towers with their dirty keyboards leaning against them and the mouse dangling like a spider. I’ve seen photos taken by others who have found old computers, video game consoles and assorted technological anatomy discarded on sidewalks, rummage sales, tossed out of windows. It’s funny that they bring more feeling than the other debris, the general run of the mill stuff like cracked dishes, beat up furniture and half-dead clothing.
It’s funny that we do care. I get a funny feeling seeing those discarded dinosaurs, unwanted and hopeless. Of course, they have no thoughts about the whole thing. Whatever emotions or passion they ever had were from the people using them. Maybe it’s because they became something more than a hunk of plastic, a tool. They became familiar, like a family pet you give attention to every day, worry about when it’s sick and feel happy spending quality time together.
Still, they are totally useless now. Unless you can make some kind of modern art with them, deconstruct them and build a new system using some of the old parts. Those old clunky monitors are too far gone though. But, they could make a very unique fish bowl for your goldfish. So there is always hope, if you really want to save your old PC.
