GENERAL INFORMATION.
====================

  1. Changes - FAQ Revision History.
     -------------------------------
     
        + Version 3.1
          ~~~~~~~~~~~
          February 22nd, 1996:
               Minor updates, mostly address-wise.
               
          January 21st, 1996:
               First update in a long time! - Sorry about that!
               A handfull of address updates - Too many to mention here.
               Added a new shop review, a new Q&A, updated the information
               on Marquis magazine. Changed the workings of the web-version
               of the big supplier list to avoid having to download
               everything for a single entry.
               
        + Version 3.0
          ~~~~~~~~~~~
          May 5-7th, 1995:
               Completely HTML'ized the entire FAQ. Rewrote the LstMaint
               program so it now can generate a special HTML-version of the
               full supplier list with a quick index that sends you directly
               down to the main entry.
               
          May 20-27th, 1995:
               Finished the HTML->Text coversion program that from now will
               treat the HTML'ized source for posting to the newsgroup. This
               will obviously change the appearance of the document in the
               text version, but it will be very closely identical to the
               appearance when the true HTML-version is browsed via Netscape
               or similar.
               
          May 28th, 1995:
               Finished making a HUGE amount of updates, in particular
               thanks to Mark I. Chester that has been feeding me with
               status and/or corrections on every supplier he's tried
               contacting. THANKS!!!
               My E-mail FAQ request demon has been terminated! - Use the
               other service mentioned for obtaining the FAQ via E-mail!
               
          May 30th, 1995:
               Added support in LstMaint for e-mail addresses and web
               adresses, and addition of hyperlinks to both in the
               HTML-version of the supplier list. Also added national index
               to the HTML-version of the supplier list so you quickly can
               find suppliers in your country.
               
          June 21st, 1995:
               Did about a dozen supplier updates and added a Q&A on how to
               measure the height of a heel.
               
          July 21st, 1995:
               Removed a few entries from the supplier list and updated all

          ~~~~~~~~~~~
          November 6th, 1994:
               Split the FAQ into more parts, making it a 9-part document,
               in order for the parts to be smaller to suit the crippled
               sites that has a far too low limit on the size of the files
               downloadable.
               Added the Corsets 101 article by Ms. Margo.

          September 7th, 1994:
               Updated the picture policy according to the poll result, to

               caused two shops ('Discreete Boutique' & 'UZI') to be

               Wrote database program (LstMaint) and converted the big list
               to entries in this database. The big list generated from this
               has been split into three parts due to size considerations -
               The list got too big for some news servers. This increased

               Leather and removed the entry for Fetters Inc., which has
               combined with Mr. S in San Francisco and closed their Tampa,

               acquired).
               
          January 16, 1994:
               Major list re-organization and expansion! - Now just one

               new entries (59.2%) - now contains 304 addresses, 198% more

          October 28, 1993:
               First release.
               
  2. Legend.
     -------
     This newsgroup was created by me on October 27, 1993, following my
     proposal early in September of a fetish newsgroup, originally named
     alt.sex.fetish.fashion, and later discussion in alt.config where I got
     nothing but support for the idea (and lots of it).
     
     Following a stray suggestion, I first created the group with the name
     alt.sex.fetish.dfp (dressing for pleasure), but then I got a dozen
     messages telling me that acronym group names was a Really Bad Idea. I
     then issued a rmgroup message for alt.sex.fetish.dfp and a new newgroup
     message for alt.sex.fetish.fashion, realizing the idea for real.
     
     Due to propagation difficulties of the initial newgroup message, a
     second newgroup message was issued two days later from a kind soul
     (mathew@mantis.co.uk) in UK which finally set this newsgroup in motion.
     Subsequent newgroup messages has been issued both from me and other
     kind people to combat persistent propagation difficulties, and there's
     still new sites picking up the group to this day!
     
     This document was written and is maintained in HTML-format at my
     private PC using the text editor QEdit 3.00C, my own database program
     called LstMaint for the big supplier list, my own HTML->Text conversion
     utility called HTML2TXT and a couple of my own batch-scripts to
     automate the end preparation of both the HTML-versions for WWW access
     and the 9 parts of plain text that is posted to the newsgroup itself
     using yet another of my own programs named YPost, which is a part of
     the YES package for the Yarn offline newsreader.
     
  3. What is this newsgroup all about?
     ---------------------------------
     First of all: To spread the knowledge about fetish fashion and dressing
     for pleasure; what it is, why we wear it, where to get it and so on. To
     show that we're not perverts, weirdos, psychopaths or worse, but only
     regular people with a special taste in clothing and/or footwear -
     people, that are dressing for pleasure. And finally: To create a forum
     where we can meet and talk about our common interest more or less in
     private.
     
     As the UseNet fetish hierarchy developed, I observed something I found
     pretty peculiar: There was no newsgroup for perhaps the biggest fetish
     of them all: Fetish clothing and dressing for pleasure. The
     alt.sex.fetish.feet newsgroup did partially cover the topic of high
     heels but most people there was more into bare feet and painted
     toenails than anything you might put on a foot; some even expressed a
     dislike of high heels due to the possible 'damage' they could cause on
     a foot.
     
     But there was no newsgroup for the connoisseurs of sexy, skintight
     clothing in leather, PVC, latex-rubber and Spandex, and the art of
     enhancing the posture and sexiness of a womans legs and body by her
     wearing high heels, or ditto for men.
     
     This all made me propose and subsequently create this group, which has
     the following major topics:
     
        + The materials: Leather, PVC, Spandex and rubber.
        + The sexy footwear to match the clothing: High heels - shoes and
          boots.
        + The fashion designs using the above mentioned materials and the
          designers.
        + The art of depicting these fashions, the models, the photographers
          and the publications.
        + Bodypainting (by request, not welcome in rec.arts.bodyart (see
          below)).
        + Stories relating to some or all of the above; your own (!)
          experiences or fiction. Do share your experiences and fantasies
          with us!
        + Literature, comics, music, movies and TV with a fetish fashion
          element.
     
     Please refer discussions about tatoos and piercing to the
     rec.arts.bodyart newsgroup, and pure B&D and S/M stuff to the
     alt.sex.bondage newsgroup where it belongs.
     
     Some B&D and S/M are welcome here (in particular stuff like bondage
     clothing, straightjackets and so on), but as a general rule it must
     relate to the main topic as well, i.e. it must have fetish clothing or
     designs in some form as a central issue.
     
     About bodypainting: Discussions are welcome here until they get their
     own forum, but alas, this document has already grown to monstrous
     proportions and I've decided not to include anything relating to
     bodypainting in this FAQ, other than these words.
     
          Bodypainting isn't really considered to fall into the
          category of bodyart for the purposes of rec.arts.bodyart,
          unless you're talking about something like henna that will
          last for a long time (weeks?). Part of the enjoyment of
          bodyart is the permanency, and involvement of either the pain
          or ritual of getting a permanent piece done on your body.
          
          From: Lani Teshima-Miller <teshima@uhunix.uhcc.Hawaii.Edu>

  4. Netiquette on alt.sex.fetish.fashion.
     -------------------------------------
     Here's a few words on how to behave on alt.sex.fetish.fashion. Please
     pay attention and heed these instructions!
     
     This is a sexually oriented newsgroup about an area sometimes
     considered a taboo or deviant behavior. Sexually explicit language will
     occur now and then so please do not be offended. If you dislike this,
     please unsubscribe now for your own good, and stop reading this
     document - and do it now!
     
     When writing (posting) to the newsgroup, please respect other peoples
     feelings and desires, and do not try to harass anyone by persistent
     questioning and obnoxious comments. Persistent harassment will be
     reported to the culprits system administrator and may result in the
     loss of access to UseNet or perhaps your account entirely. The
     behavioral keywords must be: Be towards others as you'd like them to be
     towards yourself. Don't be a jerk or try to be funny by making fun of
     any of us or our interest. Nobody finds it funny and you'll only hurt
     yourself in the process.
     
     NO personals please! - Use alt.personals.bondage or alt.personals.misc
     or best of all: alt.personals.fetish !
     
     No commercial advertisements! - Answers to direct questions are very
     welcome, but only the answer and not kilobytes of other 'useful
     information'. If you're new in the business or just new on the net,
     please send me all the information needed for a good entry in the
     supplier list. This is the only allowed way of 'advertising' ones
     presense on the net!
     
     Anonymous posting to this group is very welcome, but note that any
     abuse (for instance by harassing someone) will be reported to the
     system administrator for the anonymous reposting site immediately and
     this will most likely cause a ban for the abusers use of this
     particular server and perhaps even disclosure of culprits true name and
     address to the victims or the group as a whole. We've had two cases so
     far, and both lost their access to the anon-server as a result of the
     complaint filed. You have been warned.
     
     To find out how to post anonymously, you could check out the anonymous
     contact server at penet.fi that does carry this newsgroup and allow
     posting to it. It is in Finland and thus far out of US juristriction.
     Send a message (subject and contents doesn't matter) to:
     help@anon.penet.fi - and you will receive adequate instructions.
     
     There are other anonymous servers around but I have no information
     about these. You might try contacting someone using a pseudonym from
     one of these to get more information.
     
     The Picture Policy
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
     Following a poll made in August/September 1994, posting of pictures
     (binaries) to alt.sex.fetish.fashion is no longer allowed!
     
     Please use alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.fetish for this purpose.
     
  5. Credits.

  7. About the FAQ maintainer.
     -------------------------
     Besides being the original author and maintainer of this FAQ, I was
     also the proposer (and defender) of the idea of a fetish UseNet
     newsgroup - and subsequently the creator.
     
     I spend most of my daytime as a student at the University of Copenhagen
     with a major in computer science. In the sparetime I'm working as a
     free-lance programmer, author, photographer, graphic designer and
     musician (keyboards).
     
     I've been into fetish fashion for most of my life, but left the
     'closet' about 7-8 years ago and began to attend fetish and BDSM
     oriented gatherings.
     
     I'm male, 29 years of age, living in Ballerup which is about 10 miles
     west of Copenhagen in Denmark (Northern Europe).
     
     English is not my primary language but I understand, speak, read and
     write it fairly fluently. You are welcome to write to me in either:
     Danish, swedish, norwegian, german, french or english/american. Expect
     a reply in danish (for the scandinavian langauges) or english
     otherwise. Please keep submissions for the FAQ in english, please!
