Legs Art & Our Filming Philosophy and History

If you asked me what I love about Sexy Female Legs, I would answer you with “Sexy Female Legs”.  There’s a key element here that I think gets lost sometimes.  I love a great pair of “Sexy Legs”, but it’s the “Female” part that means almost as much.

I'm a Legaphile through and through, but I really LOVE women.

I LOVE all of them, but it’s their Legs that’s always the finalizing factor for me.  If they don’t have nice legs, it’s a bummer and hard to get around.

When looking for Legaphilia footage you’ll find it’s mostly focused, and rightfully so, on the Sexy Legs and Calf Muscles of Women.  But I tend to get a disconnect if I can’t see all of the woman from time to time, hence the Cheesecake / Modern Pin Up Style of filming we’ve adopted.

With this style we can get the best of both worlds.

Now PLEASE don’t get me wrong.  I enjoy the “Legs Only” style of filming, but I’m always thinking to myself,

“WOW, I would really like to see all of this Hottie with the Nice Legs.”

I mean just think about it.  Would you only want to stare at the models legs if the model is Elena or Anastasia?  Of course not!  Yes, their legs are art and GORGEOUS!! But their all around Beauty is something I would hate to miss.

But I digress.  As with any form of female photography, and specifically any type of “fetish” photography, women tend to be leery.  They’re not quite sure what to make of it and lots of them are very conservative and don’t like the idea.  That means that there are a lot of women who are willing to do it as long as their faces aren’t showing and that’s another reason for Legaphilia’s filming style of purely focusing on the legs.

However, with us, that’s not what we want.  We want more.

Leg Art is defined as "Cheesecake". It's a much older term that dates back to the 1600s.

The definition of “Cheesecake” is Legs Art.

It became a modern lexicon in the 30s with George Petty’s “Petty Girl”, a painted double page pin up, that eventually turned into a tri-fold pin up, in the pages of Esquire magazine.  The images depicting a beautiful woman doing ordinary things that somehow, by accident most times, would show off her legs.

As a side note, it was in that magazine with Petty’s tri-fold painting of a woman in a bunny outfit that inspired Hugh Heffner’s Playboy Playmate Centerfold.

Today’s modern pin up is much more risque, much less flirtatious and innocent than the past.  We’ve sacrificed mystery for bluntness, sometimes for good, sometimes for bad.  I wont waste your time arguing the merits of either, I’m here to tell you how this pertains to our little corner of the web.

As a Legs Fetish site we want to focus of Sexy Shapely Female Legs and Calves.  We want to give all Legaphiles a place to satisfy their visual needs and wants.  We’re leg lovers just like you.  We like all kinds of legs; long, thin, short, muscular, lythe, there are so many types and we’re trying to capture them all for you, and for us. 🙂

That brings me to our overall objective, or “Mission Statement”, why we’re doing this….It’s to expand the awareness to a larger audience.  To do that we’ll use history to our advantage.  Petty created this genre, this niche, this fetish….Cheesecake.

Since then, over the many years, it’s strayed a bit, moved in different directions and sadly, for the most part, abandoned it’s original intention to highlight the beautiful legs of a woman.  I guess you can say that Petty was the 1st Legaphile, at least the first on a large scale.

Now don't worry, we'll never stray from our core, our love of sexy female legs.

No, no, no!!

What we’re hoping to accomplish is the ability to do this till our dying day.

So as you look around our site you’ll find leg and calf focused clips where we film our models from the thigh or waist down.  Likewise you’ll find a majority of our footage filmed in full body shots of our Beautiful Models doing all kinds of posing inspired by ballet, gymnastics, or whatever craziness pops into ours, or our models, head when filming.

Always with a 100% focus on their legs at all times.

Hopefully you’ll come with us on this journey of awareness and discovery as we navigate through the social media oceans and SEO land masses to find and highlight as many sexy legged women as possible. 🙂

And Please forgive me if I come off sounding all authoritative, I don’t mean to.  I’m just trying my best to make sense of it all and hopefully clarify any thoughts or questions you might have.

If you have any questions about any of this, feel free to comment below and we’ll answer them.  We’re hoping to learn more than we know already.

THANK YOU!!

    OMG, I just discovered your site,,,, I almost dropped dead,, the pure, from nature, shape of a pair of healthy, toned legs is so erotic and beautiful at the same time that I could stare all day and night.
    Breasts are great also, but, they are fake so much of the time.
    I watch television to see the one, best pair of legs on scheduled programing, that being Emily Bett Rickards on “Arrow’.
    Please keep up the worship of beautiful legs!!!!

      Emily is the one who plays Felicity Smoke?

    I’m with you. I’m just not interested in legs-only photos. No matter how nice the legs are. Legs are a huge focus for me, but even still it’s the wholistic presentation that makes it all work.

      Great minds think alike. 🙂

    YES this is what I’ve been thinking the whole time, it’s the whole picture that makes the calves/legs beautiful. It adds character, depth: 100% agree with you!
