Winter Blues & Another Fetish


There, I feel a bit better now. Once Valentine's Day passes, and before St. Patrick's Day arrives, the persistence of winter really tends to get to me. But today it is actually supposed to hit the high 50's here......even if it is still going to be grey and cloudy.....and that is promising. ( I hope to maybe get some of that painting & staining done.)

But the promise of warmer things to come also made me think of Summer and for some reason triggered another twisted childhood memory:

Remember her?

When I was probably about the same age as the girl in this ad, I vividly recall how much I LOVED seeing her pale butt. Maybe it was because I had no sisters and growing up in a fairly conservative household offered little opportunity to see a girl's behind? But for whatever reason, I genuinely (and secretly) appreciated whenever her little hinder flashed me on a billboard. (I think I wanted to toss that dog a biscuit as a 'thank you' treat too.)

As I got older and the age difference between us increased, my feelings shifted a bit, and yet, I never quite lost my appreciation for this ad......and I don't think I'm alone. Just look at some of the great spoofs of this ad where the exposed bottom is owned by a much older young lady:

This is just too adorable!

And you gotta love this one on SO many levels!

And what Star Wars fan wouldn't appreciate this?

Even fans of the macabre like me have been inspired by that little girl.

And it's to this old ad that I attribute my "tan lines fetish". Now, for a long time I didn't really like tan lines on a nude woman, preferring the classic look of monochromatic skin. And depending on what I'm thinking, I still do like that even smoothness. BUT, there's something about tan certain situations.....that can also make a woman (or I suppose a man) seem even more naked.

And I guess that's why I'd call my interest in tan lines a "fetish".........because it's not always there and kicks in for reasons somehow separate from mere 'preference'. (Like I said, aesthetically my preference is 'no tan lines'.) And somehow, my favorite images of females with tan lines seem to revolve around a sense that the woman herself is calling attention to them in some way. Sort of like 'showing them off'.  Take a look at some of my favorites and you'll see what I mean:

Granted this is an attractive young lady, but an even skin tone on her would just not have the appeal that her 'triangle of white'  does! Your eyes go straight to her butt and the tan lines seem to accentuate just how naked she is.

Tell me her combination of tan lines and over-the-shoulder expression isn't absolutely charming!

And she doesn't HAVE to be at the beach for tan lines to 'work'. Even out that skin tone and this would be just another nude selfie.....but that creamy contrast on her bottom makes this into something much more interesting. Do you see how the tan lines make her seem 'more naked'?

And just for my lady visitors ( Merry, Fondles, Lea, and yeah, maybe even you too, Ana & Nickki LOL) here's one just for you all (even if I neglected to mention you by name.)


  1. I appreciate you including something for those more into guys. I always preferred looking at women though, and found the ladies photos much more compelling. The male form just isn't as interesting somehow!

    1. In my experience I have found the sentiment you expressed to not be unusual. I'm glad you had fun with the images.

      ELAINE: "The male body is utilitarian, like a jeep, it's just for getting around in."

      JERRY: "Some women are attracted to it."

      ELAINE: "Sickies!"

      I tend to agree, not that those ladies are "sickies" but that female bodies are inherently more attractive than male ones.

      (Yes, in my younger days I did encounter females who claimed to find my body attractive--I was a college athlete and a lifeguard in the summer--and my darling wife still says she feels that way, but I rarely thought of other males in terms of their appearance, as I tended to with women anywhere near my own age.)

      The tan lines tend to emphasize the total nudity of the female's derriere, which I find quite appealing. --C.K.

    3. I agree and disagree on the whole male body aesthetic issue. As an ex-Art Major I have to admit to seeing some great images and work using the male form. But when my interests turn more private, the female form wins every time.

  2. Always prefer looking at women although the contrast in the man's skin tones really makes your point. I do agree no tan lines are much much nicer.

  3. Interesting to look at. I prefer the woman standing inside over all of them. The man is bleh as far as I'm concerned, but each one has it's charm.

    Thank you!

    1. Thanks. When Lea wrote what she did, I immediately thought you might well be the first female to agree with her.

  4. Thanks for helping me forget about winter for a few moments KD.
    Like you , I find tan lines irresistible and have featured them occasionally on my blog.

    1. You're welcome, Glen! It seems we have quite a bit in common, huh?

  5. I have always loved tan lines, must go back to those Playboy centerfolds!
    A white bottom contrasted with a tan just seems to ask for being reddened with a spanking or more.
    I also have a bit of a fetish for sunburns, particularly on what used to be a well protected bit of very pale flesh that has been clearly exposed to the sun.

    1. Good, I'm glad I dusted this off and reposted it!

      If you look around you can find a lot on this online. Even the sunburn thing.
