I have slightly cheated today as I have been a little busy and haven’t had time to write anything new so have brought back an older post which amused me and I thought worth a second airing.
It was originally written for a post on my first teenage kiss but has the inclusion of the word “tops” which makes it eligible for the word of the day.
My first thought on trying to remember my first teenage kiss was, I can’t remember but gradually a recollection from the dim and distant past came back to me.
Back in the 60’s it was not common practice to have any form of sexual contact with the opposite sex in your parents house, it was however quite common for young people to go to the pictures, (the movies for any American readers) for such experiences.
One would head for the back row and when the lights went down, one could commence canoodling whilst most of the people were watching the film, obviously the back row would contain a number of other couples who were there for the same reason.
I seem to remember there was a sort of check list which had been passed down from the more experienced boys starting with kissing, then perhaps kissing with tongues and so on.
One would move on down the list with an arm over the shoulder which would then fall onto the girls breast and if it were not removed one progressed to the next step, that of fondling the breast from the outside of her blouse.
Slowly, slowly catchy monkey, the next step that of fondling the breast inside her blouse which of course after much fumbling and hopefully some assistance from the girl eventually meant the brassiere was released and access to the naked breasts was achieved. At this point I think there were many teenagers who must have started to believe that there actually was a God!
Fumbling slowly onward at this point I personally attempted the impossible and slowly slid my hand up the girls skirt where to my utter surprise was met by a pair of stockings which was unusual as by now virtually all girls had gone over to wearing the more modern tights.
I feel my story is coming across as a little impersonal as I keep referring to “the girl,” but the girl had a name which I cannot remember but I’m fairly certain was Jane, so will continue and refer to her as Jane.
As was the way in those days girls and boys were more tightly controlled than is the case today and I found out later that Jane wore the more old fashioned stockings as her mother thought it was more hygienic for her to get some air around her front bottom.
There was an old saying concerning girls and stocking tops which were referred to as giggle tops, the reason being if you got past the stocking tops you were laughing, suffice to say my courage ran out at the stocking tops.
I saw Jane on two or three other dates but our relationship was destined never to last, as I said her mother was very protective and to arrange a date required virtually filling in a number of forms in triplicate for her mother to give permission for the liaison.
It’s a shame as she was a very nice girl and we never progressed as far as having sex, for in those days that sort of thing had to wait until one had a motorcar and one could wait until it was dark and park up in the woods!
Ah, the innocent joys of youth, although we always hoped they wouldn’t be too innocent!
Somewhat more simpler times than the current youth of today who seem to be texting photos of their genitalia to each other at age 12!!
I wonder what became of Jane, and her old fashioned stockings? Her mother sounds formidable, to say the least!
It’s so long ago now, I have a feeling Jane was a vicars daughter, it might explain her mothers tight rein but I’m wondering why they didn’t live in a rectory, although I have no recollection of a house near the church. Perhaps through the mists of time I’m just mixing two male fantasies of the vicars daughter and stocking tops!
Couldn’t get on with stockings at all as I felt they were always falling down round my knees.
Guys always said tights were passion killers.
My wife and I go to class car events and forties events which require 40’s clothing including stocking and suspenders for the authentic look and I can speak from experience that the most important item is the correct suspender belt. Should you wish at some time to try for yourself I can recommend https://www.whatkatiedid.com/
I don’t wear skirts or frocks now, but thanks for the thought
