With each culture comes their mores, customs and mysteries. To the west the east is full of enchantments and certainly influences all cultures off the American continent, certainly Asian countries. We are fascinated and a little unnerved by what we do not understand and titillated by opposite people and cultures because they are foreign to us.
This fascination is often revealed in how Asian women are dressed when they are sold to the western world in the porn or pop market. Fed a diet of stereotypes heterosexual western men expect Asian women to appear before him as either wan subservient geishas, all white powdery face and body contained in a traditional confining bodice or devilish seductresses in a long tight skirt sporting a generous slit up the side. Blurring the lines between the Asian ethnicities no westerner even really knows, the dressing of Asian women, often by the women completely aware and in charge of the image they are foisting on the public, is as much about fueling a stereotype as it is about making an Asian woman look alluring.
But what really is so alluring? Is it when we see our fantasy in the flesh or when we are surprised? When we see a copious amount of bare female flesh exposed or when we are denied seeing it by a custom we are intrigued by but do not understand? Does the specific mode of dress we see Asian women in so often really spark our libido as much as it does our expectation? And are we more comfortable and therefore readily more aroused have our expectations tickled then our lusts?
In the end we all realize, even if we ignore the fact, that what we want from our partners is their hearts and their heads, their feelings, hopes and dreams. We want to build an intimacy with someone-be they Asian, Caucasian or any other race-less by what they wear or why they wear but by who they are.
