I am now convinced that this whole thing about ski length is Freudian.
The past ski market has been dominated with male values. Men appreciate taller "partners". (It is not just the line of the calf that sells high heel shoes). Gals my well enjoy the taller "escorts" as well. With the trends in gender/ diversity equality, along with the airing of other "closet" issues, there is now a wonderful acceptance of persons who may not be all those things the movies would have them be.
Perhaps an acceptance thing. "I'm OK, your OK".
So now, guys and gals of all dispositions are allowed to choose the recreational tool of their own preference.
Each tool can have it's own "rewards". Even the rewards are accepted as "each to their own nature".
Still, the easy gals are not the only ones that offer pleasurable experiences. (The first line premise has not been forgotten). A spirited horse has it's attractions.
So in this "New Era" of technology driven torsional ridgidity, unencumbered by mishandled length. We have....
The nice part about all this, is it makes it really easy to pick out the larks and posers!
