"Let's get kinky shall we?" "Sure, just let me take my clothes off..." "Are you done yet?" "I ain't even done taking off my first layer. Patience, mister 'I only have pants and a shirt on it doesn't take me that long to take my clothes off'."
emi schwartz (5 days ago)
OK, imagine having sex, and your man's thought that the dress was just one piece, 100000 layer's later and you have FINALLY gotten her clothes off 😂😂😂
HildaZ Campos (5 days ago)

I'm sorry, but that is just way too much mess to be putting on! I get hot very fast, even in winter, and I would have been miserable in all of those layers, and those little pieces would have just driven me crazy! Thank goodness clothing has evolved away from all of that!

I think it was in Mad magazine, there was a comic about two 18th century gentleman discussing the death of another man on his wedding night. The first guy says something like, "What happened? Was she just too much for him to handle?" The next guy says, "No, it was the strain of undressing her!"
endlessummer (13 days ago)
Poor video work. Does not do justice to everything that was presented for viewing. Especially at the end where you can't see the entire figure of the woman.

That ribbon round it part of the rhyme always confused me as a child, figured they meant a sort of purse. It makes more sense now with this information.
chris inhawaii (13 days ago)
All of these layers, many of which were added for warmth; where were these people living, Antarctica? And after all that dressing and tying and bending over and pinning (pinning!!!), I bet mi’lady needed a nap immediately afterward.
Bobby C. (13 days ago)
Every nation had its abusive clothing to women. All these heavy trip over your feet can't run or breathe.
Nathan Holstrom (13 days ago)
Even better if she had an 18th century womans body that had been reformed by the stays
