One man's kindly benefactor is another man's fetishist

Consider the following corollary to Rule 34 — No matter how unattractive you think a certain feature (or lack thereof) might be, there will always be somebody who is totally into it. Case it point: Nose-less syphilitics in 19th-century London. You might suspect that would doom one to a life of loneliness. But no. At the Chirurgeons Apprentice you can read about the older "eccentric" gentlemen who liked to throw underground parties for his many nose-less friends.


  1. This article reminds me of the old R & B line:

    “Man, she’s ugly but she sho can cook!”

    Of course, we were all told as children that it matters not what one looks like, it’s “WHAT’S INSIDE” that matters. As far as gathering places for those with “deformities” go, such places still exist today and in fact flourish. There are societies for amputees, the blind and the deaf and for other, um “deformities” (etc) – and as far as specific sexual fetishes are concerned, the book is wide open.

  2. When I was in college, before I or most people had even heard of the internet, I read The 120 Days of Sodom by the Marquis de Sade. If you have any doubts about the validity of the above stated corollary to Rule 34 that book will put them to rest.
