Fashion, fetish, gender and everything between

Hello to everyone.
This is my first posting on the blog and here I'm going to talk about my "creed", the content I'm going to put in this blog and its purpose. The title I chose for this blog: Fashion, Fetish and Gender, is the essence of it. For start, maybe we should understand of these terms (from Wikipedia):


Fashion  a general term for a currently popular style or practice, especially in clothing, foot wear, or accessories. 


Gender  is a range of characteristics used to distinguish between males and females, particularly in the cases of men  and women  and the masculine and feminine attributes assigned to them.


Fetish (clothing)is a sexual fetish that revolves around a fixation upon a particular article or type of clothing, a collection of garments that appear as part of a fashion or uniform, or a person dressed in such a garment..



And about "everything between" - Well, I think it's easy to understand how these three terms are related to each other. Fashions is constantly changing and  clothes have very large influence on attraction. And of course - because dressing is only a social issue - it is a great way to analyze the gender differences between men and women and their meanings.


At This blog I intend to analyze various clothing and explain the fetish meaning of them: why high heels are something so appealing? What is so sexy with clothes made out of  lycra, vinyl or leather, and what excites more: a naked woman or a woman with lingerie?


The main difference between this blog and other fashion blogs or articles is that this blog is going to try to be detached from all kinds of fashion trends. The goal will be to find some general truths that will be relevant over time and not wiped out after a season, with the intention to help people understand more about clothes and their great impact.


The current situation is that almost all conversations about clothes and fashion are consider to be "inferior". These are mostly teenage conversations or small talks. Society has a very special relationship with the world of fashion: on one hand - clothes have a huge impact on our lives, and on the other hand  - dealing to much with fashion is consider to be unrepeatable. This blog enters in this vacuum.


I must emphasize that I have no college education in gender nor in fashion, and this blog does not claim to be scientific or academic in any way. I might mention here and there some academic studies, but overall this blog simply represents my subjective opinion and yes - it is very possible that many things a matter of taste. But I believe that most men will share my taste.

And another little note - although the stigma determines if a man is talking about clothes or fashion then he's probably gay. I can certainly understand where this stigma has grown but in the case of me - I am 100% Straight and attracted only to women. It's possible that this fact will help me get this blog a number of unique ideas that were not presented elsewhere.
