Talk:Sailor fetish

Jump to: navigation, search

Could distinguish things a bit better -- both women and gay men can be attracted to real sailors, or men playing the role who look like they could be sailors -- whereas heterosexual men are generally attracted to feminine-looking girls in cute little sailor-suit outfits with skirts (whom no one would confuse for a moment with real sailors). The skirted sailor-suit was worn by half the middle-class teenage girls in late Victorian England, and nowadays is associated with Japanese schoolgirls... AnonMoos 00:25, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

This should not ignore that children wearing sailor suit wasn't just girls, but boys too, and was started when young Prince Albert was dressed that way --Roguebfl (talk) 19:53, 4 December 2012 (GMT)
The article isn't talking about boys or girls wearing sailor suits. It's merely linking to a reference to Japanese schoolgirls wearing sailor suit type uniforms, which they do, and I don't think Japanese boys do. AnonMoos keeps telling us that we should stick to fetish topics; if we're talking about children in that context, we're veering towards paedophilia.--Markova (talk) 22:37, 4 December 2012 (GMT)
Roguebfl -- my comment above was about the state of the article as it was over a year ago; I don't think there's any need to change the current article on the basis of those remarks. The last sentence was kind of tossed in as possibly-relevant background information, but any extended discussion of it would probably better go on Talk:School uniform fetish...

Japanese boys typical wear a uniform based on on a different nation's army, however from a fetish point of view the japanese school uniform is an example of the ageplay sub group of school uniform, which western boys fall under as much as AnonMoos's mention of Victorian English Girls for the same time and space, where it was more common for boys than girls.

That's nice, but not too relevant to this particular article. In late Victorian England, the skirted sailor-suit was not generally a school uniform, and was a way that middle-class girls could dress in relatively practical and non-ultra-frilly outfits without violating social norms. It could be worn as late as about age 17 or so (when a girl was "out" and started to go to balls and other grown-up social events, and was considered marriageable, then she had to discard the sailor suit...).
