always gives away its sexual
Some hundreds of years ago on human history, in the eighth century Japan, some
shintoists invented a way for enfolding the penis labeled as "Korigami"-
the art of enwrapping the penis for heightening sex-pleasure.
As it so happens, a man places his penis inside a paper sculpture of an animal.
Once done and over with, he begins to imagine that his penis would have the
same animal capabilities and then, he and his sex-partner can act out sexual
fantasies inspired on that animal. Such " Japanese fitting" reached
its peak between the ninth century and twelfth century but there are those who
practice it to these days still. In a tour of fashion history we can find a
man's way of dressing that some historians call as phallic symbols of sexuality.
In the treatises of Kama Sutra there can be found allusions to
the enthralling power of fashion in luring sexuality out of both
Men used to wear long pointing shoes called poulaines between the eleventh
century and fifteenth century. Apparently, so -invented knights' shoes
would fit better in the stirrups.
These shoes gained reputation probably connected to the notion that the
foot size would reflect the penis size, widely accepted at the time as
apparels of male sexuality.
Some fashion historians view hats as "substitute penises". Some argue
that just like the poulaines, the height of a hat would stand for the penis
size so much so as the authority and the status of a man. It's said by some
that male hats got smaller in height at the same time as women emancipation
increasingly as time went by. Thus, as symbolic representation that the male
" authority was being toppled".
The tie may also be deemed as phallic symbol of male sexuality. Given
the way it hangs there-dangling, so decorating men's clothes. Men would give
their best shot when choosing their ties inasmuch as choosing their shirts.
The well sought after attractive looks so elegant as to please women sexuality
as well. After all, the so-called attractive looks makes part of flirting and
sex-games, even if only for one night-stand.
Also men's suits, although penis concealing, have played constant part on the
history of male fashion for well over hundred years. A man adjusts his
dangling parts to either side- left or right, or places it in the most suitable
manner. Loose-fit and baggy trousers are of preference by those who enjoy freely
masturbation. As it only takes a hand flung in one of the front pockets,
and so clasp the old penis with no possible noticeably way of what is going
The trend of tight fitting pants, which was due dated since the first half
of the nineteenth century, would hit mainstream in the early seventies with
the advent of the androgynous look frenzy. Rock stars, the rich and famous alongside
youngsters, would wear tight pants in order to make obvious their bulging penises.
Whether made of indigo, leather or fabrics whichever was the material so long
as they would fit tight. Furthermore, some daring rock legends would thrown
in some kind of filler or stuffing for even more bulge spotlight on the volume
of their penises. It's all documented on footage, photographs and memorabilia
of the heydays.
Therefore, it's conclusive that also men manifest outwardly sexual intents
through clothing. In brief, a history tour through accessories, trinkets of
casual and social draping alike that have had their spot under the light of
sexuality. Jeans whether tight or with flares and leather trousers got in our
daily sexuality as we speak. The so-called modern man meets at the fitness centers
and health spas the best mode to show off and express his masculinity by wearing
sport attires and highlight his body figure to boot. Anyway, whether vanity
or pure exhibitionism, there can be said that the penis is always much en vogue.
