Auctioneers Lyon and Turnbull will offer to bidders, in an event at a salesroom in Edinburgh, Scotland, the very bloomers once owned by Queen Victoria. Also for sale will be paintings and furniture.

From the article:
Quote
Black-and-white, hand-stitched silk stockings she wore when she went into mourning over the death of Prince Albert are expected to fetch between £500 and £800.

Three pairs of silk stockings, a lace night-gown and a pair of her gloves will also be sold.

One day we will talk about why people fetishize children, but for now I'll keep on the side of humanity that doesn't think the height of life is a drinking a juice box and eating a tater tot while defecating in their pants.

I always wondered about that and what it says about a culture.  It is either an entire island of incontinent women or perverted men.  Neither option is particularly desirable.

I have some thoughts about repressed Japanese sexuality that are perhaps not suitable for discussion on a Christian forum.
