Camel toe? a fashion Faux Paw!

by Madeline Laughs

Cameltoepia – a real place…at Burning Man

The other night I came down the hall ready for dinner and my husband says to me “Y0u’re going to need a longer shirt.” I looked at him. A longer shirt? Since when does he critique my fashion? “Seriously, you need a longer shirt.” I look down at my incredibly put together outfit and snort “Why do I need a longer shirt?” He shrugs “Because you have a cameltoe.”

A what?!

Don’t sit there reading this and tell me you’ve never had a cameltoe. It has happened to the best of us. It doesn’t matter if you’re a size zero or camping tent large, cameltoes happen.

It is a fashion faux pas, or should I say faux paw

I Googled cameltoe and guess what…it’s in Wikipedia! And there’s a picture of one! (Click the link attached to Wikipedia for the full monty) I laughed my ass off! Embarrassing to the person sporting one, but hilarious to everyone else.

Common circumstances

The causes of cameltoe are not always obvious.[4][5] Cameltoe commonly occurs as a result of wearing tight fitting clothes, such as jeans, shorts, hotpants, or swimwear.[5] Due to a combination of anatomical factors and the snugness of the fabric, the crotch and pudenda cleft may take on a resemblance to the forefoot of a camel.

Some fashion analysts have identified clothing design as a cause, rather than its size. Cameltoe may thus be exacerbated by garments with a tight central seam that serves to divide the labia majora.[3][6]

So there ya have it! That’s how a cameltoe happens.

Trust me, it’s normally nothing to do with your anatomy if you have on bottoms that fit you correctly. For the ladies wearing skin tight pants, hey! you deserve a cameltoe! But sometimes that middle seam just wants to crawl and there’s nothing you can do, short of putting a board in your crotch, to stop it.

These are usually pants I throw in the Goodwill box once they’re discovered as cameltoe creepers. If anything is going to divide my labia majora, it’s not going to be a pair of my own pants.

One thing is certain…my husband still checks me out 🙂 Yay!

  2. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!

    P.S. I went to Burning Man in 1994. Wow. I’ve never been back. It was just too much for me because I immersed myself in everything. If I ever do go back, I’ll have to take it a little easier. Of course, at this point I’m 20 years older!
