|They’re very close. They even switch bottoms. Or tops, not sure which.|
The video was picked up by Swim Daily.
Interesting. Boobs and butts are common territory, even getting their own “cams” dedicated to them. And legs? They’re pretty quaint, as objects of desire go.
But the aforementioned V-word is generally the unmentioned body part in re: the swimsuit issue. This is interesting, considering the fact that a woman’s bathing suit is essentially an arrow pointing to it.
My ongoing effort to track every instance of a girl wearing a top but not a bottom drove home what a taboo that area is, the most overtly sexual of the models’ sexual zones.
I do remember a behind-the-scenes video of Tori Praver in this shot:
…talking about how a kid who happened to be behind them on the beach at that moment was about to glimpse his “first female vagina” (sic: the redundancy). I can’t find that footage anywhere, but I know I didn’t dream it. I wonder if it was deemed too dirty by SI and pulled.
But then there’s this interview with Alyssa Miller, in which she divulges one of the secrets of bodypainting: the pussy flap.
|Somehow the missing “L” makes it even more apt.|
It allows for that area to look as smooth and harmless in paint as it looks in a bikini bottom. It’s a rare instance of that part of the anatomy coming to the forefront. We Americans have a squeamish relationship to that organ, despite our fascination with the female body.
|Exhibit A: the pussy flap.|
Anyway, one of the few other instances of this phenomenon is this photo of Julie Henderson, posted on the SI Swimsuit Facebook page last summer.
The (official!) caption reads, “One time, at band camp…” Those of you who are familiar with the movie “American Pie” know the rest of the line.
