"Manet's famous painting, "Olympia," (1863) depicted a prostitute wearing a black ribbon around her neck. During this era, a ribbon around the neck could mean a woman was a prostitute."

Still true today.  Ribbon around the neck means prostitute.

I thought girls wore ribbons tied around the neck to keep their severed heads from falling off their neck stump? Like in that old ghost story.

pretty much a guideline...if the woman is hot & sexy, then what she's wearing will be likely hot & sexy

and if she's not, then what she's wearing will not likely help further


Be who you are, enjoy yourself.
Try things out.

The version I remember from my childhood was from a children's anthology of scary stories by Alvin Schwartz. Those illustrations ruined my childhood.

I still blame/thank her for my love of chokers. It's a pretty big miss in my book.

I thought a ribbon around the neck was a traditional Slavic way of signifying that a girl is available for marriage?  Either that, or to show that she's engaged.

I know the ribbon means marriage in India:

In one part of the world only is The Nuptial Knot literally as well as figuratively tied. This is in India, at the marriage of a Brahmin. No sooner has the father, in words as plainly as can be, Given the Bride Away (see 175), than the bridegroom places the Tali, or insignia of marriage, consisting of a piece of ribbon with a gold bead suspended upon it, round her neck, and ties the knot. It is this knot which actually secures her to him, and makes the marriage indissoluble, for the Brahmins do not recognize divorce.

That'll be one of my favorite images of a girl wearing a choker.  NSFW, by the way.

They just made me want to paint. Is that bad?


List fails without the poster for Orphan. Chokers are for hiding evidence you're really a 30 year old Russian crazy person.

But ballerinas and fashionable ladies wore them too.Got news for ya.  Ballerinas were more often than not prostitutes back then.

liked the 1944 B&W Dog Collar pic best. Chokers are very erotic. Choking is very erotic. Girls that use wide chokers to hid their kinky rope burns are erotic. Really pretty chickswithdicks that use chokers to cover their adam's apple - I don't want to talk about it.

"Olympia" isn't fine art. There's gotta be columns or vases in fine art.

I'm gonna guess you have a pit in your basement with a girl in it and are currently constructing a flesh-suit.

Ah yes,the memories.What better way to ride a young filly than bareback with naught but a halter in hand.Guiding her through a meadow of wildflowers with tightend knees;the fragrance of Panama Red filling the air.Bucking and rearing,kicking her heels to the sky while the Orange Sunshine opens vision to night.
Ah yes,the memories.What old hippies live on.
