Pin Up Against the Blackboard
My style tends toward the child-like and the young, and never has that been more obvious than in this school uniform I picked up to get one of the cards for the Choice 2011 event going on right now. This isn't Lolita, which is a more innocent and covered style, but rather an erotic expression of the traditional school uniform (traditional for other people's traditions, not mine; I never wore a school uniform). Viewed objectively, the idea that school uniforms could be eroticized - given that most of those wearing them are under eighteen - should be horrifying. I can't deny, however, that my response was not horror, but rather a long hunt to find a school to take some pin up pictures in.
There is a tension between innocence and debauchery, but another aspect of it is a subtle sort of submission; the innocent is to be pursued, tracked, and captured; the innocent can't be blamed for anything that happens; the innocent can respond with passion without shame because the innocent doesn't know shame should be felt as a cost to passion. Plausible deniability, all wrapped up in a short skirt and a tie.
