The Secret Life of Melanie O.

Naughty but Nice, part II
I occasionally get fan mail from people who have been to my retro lingerie and pin-up site. Most people love the old style garters, bullet bras, and girdles that were staples of women's wardrobes from the mid 60's and earlier. I like that we all share an affinity for feminine forms of the past. Every once in a while, I publish an "R" rated photo, but most of the time, the photos are, by modern standards, fairly tame.

Sometimes I get a request to "bare more" and I have to say, I'm not terribly comfortable with the idea any more. I had a few nudes on my site and took them down. It's not just because I'm getting older, it's about not wanting to lose the mystique. I think it's a woman's prerogative to keep 'em guessing.

One of the reasons I love filmy lingerie and see-through tops and blouses, is that they leave a bit to the imagination. I think this is more exciting than baring it all. It's like being a kid and wondering what you're getting for Christmas. Unwrapping the gifts is as exciting as the gift itself. One year, my sister and I spoiled our Christmas by snooping and finding out what we were getting before the gifts were wrapped and put under the Christmas tree. I think that putting it all out there is a bit like snooping for Christmas gifts.

I often read of couples who are bored with their sex lives after only a few years of being monogamous. One of the reasons, I think, is because they forget that the mind is the biggest sex organ of all. Excite the mind, and the body will follow. Dan and I often share fantasies with each other - we don't need to follow through with them. Sharing them is like reading a dirty novel with each other as the main character. Again - leaving something to the imagination is the key to an erotic life.

At the rate we're going, I expect our lives to be perpetually filled with stockings, garters, bullet bras and smiles. Dan says that he'll be chasing me around the nursing home when we're 90.

I sure hope so.

    You are so right Melanie. I've been away from your site a few months because I no longer have internet at home. (I moved to the country!)
    I was delighted with all of the new photos you on the retro site now.

    Keep up the good work, I will have to find a computer with audio so I can hear your audios.

    You old fan in Missouri,

    I have to agree wholeheartedly. I thought your new photos were revealing and at the same time alluring.
    A longtime fan of yours from Seattle.
