Vintage 20s & 30s Bondage and Fetish Gear By Yva Richard and Diana Slip (NSFW) 

469_001As Michel Foucault famously attested, we often presume that contemporary society is singularly sexually liberated, that those who came before us were far more conservative, even their innermost fantasies more bourgeois than ours.
