Dirty Darning

I wanna play with your bobbin, lick your scarlet thread, oil your shaft and vibrate this floor like never before.

Turns out there was a problem in clothing manufacture at the turn of the century. Young woman were treadling like mad and having to deal with the resulting orgasms according to Havelock Ellis in the 1920's. It became a safety hazard.

Time for me to start sewing. Pedal to the metal!!!

And time to call Naughty Peter for some serious research.
