(Buzzfeed)   Because there's nothing else of importance going on in the world. Here's a brief look into the history of the choker necklace. (There's a PNot safe for work pic, but it's art ...so it should be OK)   (buzzfeed.com) divider line 14

bob_ross: "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.

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

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.

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.
