"precaution." But they were not necessarily worn by dancers, and 

in 1727 a young _ballerina_, having had her skirt accidentally 

torn away by a piece of stage machinery, the police issued an 

order that in future no actress or dancer should appear on the 

stage without drawers; this regulation does not appear, however, 

to have been long strictly maintained, though Schulz (_Ueber 

Paris und die Pariser_, p. 145) refers to it as in force in 1791. 

(The obscure origin and history of feminine drawers have been 

discussed from time to time in the _Intermediaire des Chercheurs 

et Curieux_, especially vols. xxv, lii, and liii.) 

 

Prof. Irving Rosse, of Washington, refers to "New England 

prudishness," and "the colossal modesty of some New York 

policemen, who in certain cases want to give written, rather than 

oral testimony." He adds: "I have known this sentiment carried to 

such an extent in a Massachusetts small town, that a shop-keeper 

was obliged to drape a small, but innocent, statuette displayed 

in his window." (Irving Rosse, _Virginia Medical Monthly_, 

October, 1892.) I am told that popular feeling in South Africa 

would not permit the exhibition of the nude in the Art 

Collections of Cape Town. Even in Italy, nude statues are 

disfigured by the addition of tin fig-leaves, and sporadic 

manifestations of horror at the presence of nude statues, even 

when of most classic type, are liable to occur in all parts of 

Europe, including France and Germany. (Examples of this are 

recorded from time to time in _Sexual-reform_, published as an 

appendix to _Geschlecht und Gesellschaft_.) 

 

Some years ago, (1898), it was stated that the Philadelphia 

_Ladies' Home Journal_ had decided to avoid, in future, all 

reference to ladies' under-linen, because "the treatment of this 

subject in print calls for _minutiae_ of detail which is extremely 

and pardonably offensive to refined and sensitive women." 

 

"A man, married twenty years, told me that he had never seen his 

wife entirely nude. Such concealment of the external reproductive 

organs, by married people, appears to be common. Judging from my 

own inquiry, very few women care to look upon male nakedness, and 

many women, though not wanting in esthetic feeling, find no 

beauty in man's form. Some are positively repelled by the sight 

of nakedness, even that of a husband or lover. On the contrary, 

most men delight in gazing upon the uncovered figure of women. 

It seems that only highly-cultivated and imaginative women enjoy 

the spectacle of a finely-shaped nude man (especially after 

attending art classes, and drawing from the nude, as I am told by 

a lady artist). Or else the majority of women dissemble their 

curiosity or admiration. A woman of seventy, mother of several 

children, said to a young wife with whom I am acquainted: 'I have 

never seen a naked man in my life.' This old lady's sister 

confessed that she had never looked at _her own_ nakedness in the 

whole course of her life. She said that it 'frightened' her. She 

was the mother of three sons. A maiden woman of the same family 

told her niece that women were 'disgusting, because they have 

monthly discharges.' The niece suggested that women have no 

choice in the matter, to which the aunt replied: 'I know that;
