Fig. 132.

Inspired by a medical journal from 1901, warning against the dangers of tight-laced corsetry.

"A size of 60 centimetres is very beautiful, one of 50 centimetres is charming. But a man does not try the gods; he does not wish to contemplate what in their leniency they wrap. And now let us make abstraction, of the serious internal disorders that can be produced by the tight corset, and let us put the following question: one reaches, by thus sacrificing health and many approvals of the life, does one achieve the true goal proposed, the embellishment of the body? We will answer: seemingly yes, actually, not. The fine size thus obtained can impose some on vulgar, but the observer tested, shocked disproportion between this mean size and the other parts of the body will almost always recognize the defects under clothing which dissimulates them. On a naked body, the deformation jumps to the eyes."

The newsprint-quality is a deliberate imitation of the quality of 19th century printing, and they were printed on blank pages torn out of old books.

Part of the "pornographic" section of my Victorian Portraits Series.
