Forums The Will to Adorn Sexual/Erotic Style and Imagery Reply To: Sexual/Erotic Style and Imagery


From the days of the “pin-up” girls, images of women in sexually provocative clothing (or lack of clothing) have been a part of the visual culture of the US. Are they representations of a “community of style?” probably, but the cards as artifacts of culture are probably not intended to document a style so much as to arouse. Interesting but I don’t know how central I’d make it to this particular research—maybe interview the models or people who adopt the dress? Is it an occupational uniform? Hmm!
