34 – Pt 3. This is a preface to MY OWN voyeur story!

Note this isn’t a movie review ūüôā

To those of you reading in WordPress¬†Land the screenshots are of course¬†borrowed from the master of suspense and voyeurism himself, Alfred Hitchcock, and the annoying GIFs are¬†taken from¬†his movie ‘Rear Window’¬†where Jimmy Stewart is of course spying on Miss Lonelyheart, who may or may not be a Prostitute he never lets on, but I like to think¬†‘yes’¬†and my guess knowing Alfred Hitchcock Miss Lonelyheart is really a Hooker, he loved his blondes¬†but who knows?

Conversely Miss Lonelyheart¬†represents the disaster of single life, she was always¬†being visited by single men,¬†were they suitors? Or lovers? But that’s a different tale and I’m on a roll talking voyeurism.

This isn’t a movie review ūüôā

After writing 2¬†posts titled ‘Voyeurism’ you would have assumed I’d done my homework and¬†consulted¬†a Dictionary, showed you a little professionalism, respected¬†my reader, done some research like all you proper writers!

You’d have thought I’d looked up the true meaning wouldn’t you?

You’d be wrong, I was lazy.

I’d assumed Voyeurism just meant watching people go about their daily business but I was wrong, turns out the true definition is darker……a whole¬†lot darker and¬†even a little sinister!!¬†Yes Downblouse and Upskirt are¬†distasteful and illegal practices but I’d never¬†fully appreciated ‘Voyeurism is¬†the practice of spying on people engaged in intimate behaviours, such as undressing,¬†or other actions usually considered to be of a private nature.’ (Courtesy of Wikipedia)

I’ll spare you any YouPorn¬†voyeurism videos¬†because I absolutely detest pornography and by that I mean legal consensual pornography between adults…….I truly hate it!

Voyeur (def): a person who obtains sexual pleasure or excitement from the observation of someone undressing, yep more darker and sinister than I’d first assumed. OK¬†I agree Voyeur is¬†only a word after all, but I wish I’d appreciated there’s a difference between watching someone get on a bus and secretly¬†observing women undress err for examples sake!

Lol anyways now I know.

I¬†‘penned’ a¬†story on my previous blog¬†which may or may not have been true. That blog’s long gone so I’ve decided¬†to write again and¬†I am not going to apologise for letting you decide again, bloggers keep replying telling me not¬†to say sorry, they say ūüôā Andrew write what you wish and let the reader decide ūüôā

So here’s my¬†late night¬†voyeuristic tale¬†set against¬†the backdrop of¬†a very non typical English summers¬†evening, I say non typical, I’m told in America’s Deep South hot and humid evenings are described as ‘swampy’ well¬†if you live in England you’ll get two or three ‘clammy evenings’ a year!¬†I’m labouring the point here with the humidity references but you get the idea when I say¬†tonight was one of those evenings where you walk around the house naked, and so damn hot and humid¬†you’re balls would be¬†sweating ūüėÄ

One summer evening several years ago I happened to be looking out my bedroom window, the time was midnight and I’d just gotten out of bed.

Story.

‘Through slightly parted curtains I propped myself up¬†against the¬†bedroom¬†window¬†sill and looked across the¬†fields behind the house opposite, tonight I was watching a truly spectacular thunder and lightening display,¬†mother natures power can be truly awe inspiring……………..

(A little naughty of me to pause¬†but¬†I haven’t¬†finished editing yet¬†and gulp I only hope I haven’t, to borrow a cookery phrase,¬†I hope I haven’t ‘over egged’¬†my tale¬†to such an extent¬†you’re disappointed!

I’ll tell you this much though, tonight’s events might or might not be true¬†and¬†I’m not telling which, but if you know me you’ll¬†guess right.)

Pt 1  Pt 2 are hopefully an interesting read.
