We see our fetish where we want to see it
Sorry folks- been on vacation. Back now. The "song of the summer" apparently is something called "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke (not to be confused with the dad on Growing Pains's son Kirk Cameron).
(And yes, I wondered about what Erica the editor would think of that sentence.)
It's been the number one song in America for the last several weeks. I've heard it, and out of amusement, watched the uncensored version too. Don't completely remember but the refrain keeps mentioning how "you're a good girl!" and the video features lots of mostly naked models dancing around and a guy well, dancing with a hairbrush and sort of swinging it.
Naturally, I thought about spanking. Why else would he have been dancing with a hairbrush, right? I've posted before on seeing something in the real world and how I immediately relate it to spanking. There was that oddly specific instruction on the Pillsbury brownie mix "50 strokes with a spoon" which I found interesting. More recently reading a best-selling book this summer a specific line got my spanky senses tingling. Dating way back when, before websites, there were newsgroup posts, and some of my favorites were entitled "startle" - when a spanko saw something in real life and it made them think of spanking.
On the other hand, maybe in respect to this video (Miley Cyrus's video is a whole 'nother story) I was just finding what I was looking for because that's what I was looking for. Perhaps if I were into foot fetishes, I would have viewed this video in a light reflecting my tastes. I mean, he's kissing some pretty cute feet there. no?
Or if I had a medical fetish for shots in the bottom (not that I do, or anything... not that there's anything wrong with that!) I'd have watched this video and seen something appealing to that particular fetish too. I mean, there's a giant syringe that she chases him with and then he injects her with in the bottom, right?
Or uhm... hot chicks and cars. Wait there are a million videos of hot chicks and cars.
But my point is, maybe I see the world through spanko-colored glasses. Maybe I see things as a "startle" when it's just vanilla folks being silly. Or maybe this song (and this video) is so popular because it secretly appeals to so many kinky folks. Then again, maybe it just has a catchy beat.
