(Ed. Note: I am approaching this topic from the female bottom perspective because that is (almost exclusively) the group that I have seen take part in it, but if you are a male or other-gendered person, Top or bottom, who engages in school uniform-type play, please feel free to substitute correct pronouns and discuss the topic from your point of view. I’d be delighted to read some different perspectives on it!)

Don’t forget: Kink of the Week is now a BIWEEKLY (every two weeks) meme.
Post from Sept. 15 – 28!

From one end of the spectrum to the other we go this month, from buttplugs in the beginning to school garb in the last half.

schoolgirl

What makes schoolgirl garb such a popular and enduring trope in the fetish world? What is its appeal, and how did it become a “thing,” not only among spankers, but among so many in the kink community at large? You can’t go to a kink party without seeing at least one submissive/bottom dressed up in the ubiquitous plaid skirt and knee socks, saddle shoes or buckle shoes, sometimes with bows or ribbons in their ponytailed hair. Innocence perverted…

Do you or a play partner of yours dress in schoolgirl garb? Is it a personal fetish of yours, and if so, what makes it so? What appeals to you about it?

If you dress that way, do you get a sexual thrill out of it? Is it a part of ageplay, or do you just like it because it’s cute? Does it feel sexy or sexual to you – or perhaps just the opposite? Maybe it makes you feel child-like and innocent?

And what is your play partner’s role when you are dressed that way? Is he your protector or violator? Or perhaps a gentle but firm disciplinarian. Does it feed some mental or emotional need in you? Or in them?

Or perhaps none of these. Maybe he/she and you simply like the look.

If you are the Top, do you request that your play partner dress this way, or perhaps require it for a particular kind of scene? If so, what does seeing your partner dressed this way make you feel? Is playing with someone in schoolgirl dress a turn-on specifically because of their clothing? What is your role in such a scene, if the clothing does have a part in it?

Let’s Get Our Kink On and talk about school uniforms!!
