Holding Hands and Flaunting Skirts

Dear folks -

This is a horse-cover, South Iran, from Jenny Housego’s “Tribal Rugs (Plate 95).

It has sexual images of two kinds. The caption says “At the top human figures link hands while below skirted ladies flaunt themselves above a row of straight-tailed peacocks.”

That does it.
I'll never shake hands again.
This isn't sex, this is really disgusting.

From now on, everybody should ware gloves.

I like this salon!

Best regards,

Hi Vincent -

"Shaking hands" is one thing, but "holding hands" is usually something else.

Don't you remember? That's one of the ways it all starts.

I do admit I'm having a little trouble remembering myself.
