GIRLS IN WET CLOTHES by Arthur Chappell Print: £7.10 Download: £2.50 http://www.lulu.com/content/887972 This is an exclusive print on demand detailed in depth study of the arousal gained from voyeuristic observation and participation in the erotic art of getting wet while still partly or fully dressed. The essay looks at the kind of people who find such activity a turn on, and demonstrates clearly how wetlook has influenced history and popular culture. I look at the criticisms levelled at wetlook enthusiasts, the kind of clothing they like best, (and like least), whether transparency or dark concealing colours of material are preferred, and explore how the fetish has grown in the age of the Internet. I examine the psychology behind the fetish, its uses in literature from Shakespeare’s Hamlet (the drowning of Ophelia) to D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover. I look at one hundred classic wetlook movies such as the Bo Derek version of Tarzan Of The Apes, and Ali McGraw’s swim in blouse and skirt in The Getaway. I also look at the things that can spoil a wetlook experience; i.e., wetlook scenes not occurring in films, finding only men getting wet when you want to see and potentially join in with girls, I look at the question of why many public pools and fountains refuse to allow bathers to stay clothed even though it is safer than wearing swimsuits. (It protects you from the Sun, and gives greater buoyancy). For some religious people, swimming without full body cover is taboo. I look at the kind of environments wetlook fans appreciate, from the bathtub, and shower, through to swimming pools, Jacuzzis and the Ocean. I examine the kind of swimming strokes preferred, and whether the wetlook activists prefer slow soaking or emersion, or plunging in to get soaked more quickly. I end with a selection of my personal wetlook poems.
