bewitching little thighs: why does this tag exist?

Posted under Tags

Simply put, what is this tag trying to be? It doesn't seem like it's existence serves a purpose

good question, I always found it confusing but figured there might be an explanation somewhere... but couldn't find one, no wiki entry here or elsewhere! Seems to have made it's way to other sites too...

We have 1900+ of the BLT tag here so I'm guessing it is homegrown and the user(s) who likes the tag(s) posts it on other boorus too.

Nobody has created a wiki tag to explain what it refers to though. Like does it just mean you see a loli's thighs, a loli's BARE thighs, some kind of thigh-related posture?

We can check to see where it originated...

https://booru.allthefallen.moe/post_versions?page=18&search%5Bchanged_tags%5D=bewitching_little_thighs&type=current

From the looks of things, it was introduced 19 December 2019 by https://booru.allthefallen.moe/users/17728 (also the day they registered)

If you look at their edit history, tacking on this tag was pretty much all they did in their 103 edits before abandoning the site on 22 December 2019 https://booru.allthefallen.moe/post_versions?search%5Bupdater_name%5D=user_17728

So that flurry of 3 day activity is how it was born. Then apparently some other users took it up, though I can't help but wonder if these might be the same user:

14 March 2020 https://booru.allthefallen.moe/post_versions?search%5Bupdater_name%5D=user_19155
11 May 2020 https://booru.allthefallen.moe/users/19954

Basically seems like the pet project of Nakadashi7 to add this tag. I don't know if Nakadashi was previously 17728 and 19155 but as the torch-bearing enthusiast I would say it is a burden we should put unto them to explain to us what the tag is and write a wiki entry for it.

to my best of understanding its how the thighs are curved i think. i dont get the tag either tbh. i mean we also have a frog is fine as a tag.

dont question this site tags its best not to think too deep in to it lol.

it's always good to question tags otherwise we'd set a precedent to just spam, obviously we don't require explaining everything (it's often obvious what "2girls" means for example) but in cases where someone is confused we should supply it

I understand something like thigh gap for example. Thigh gap bewitches the hell out of me. But a LOT of things about thighs could in theory "bewitch" someone.

Like for example how do I know it doesn't refer to having muscular thighs with defined quadriceps?

If it's something about the 'curve' we could probably explain that in more detail.

As for frog that's obviously lolis fucking frogs

Looks like it's been defined in a wiki entry now, so mystery solved(?)

I messaged Nakadashi w/ creation link asking them to do it, looks like they did :) https://booru.allthefallen.moe/wiki_page_versions?search%5Bwiki_page_id%5D=1027

Lesse...

>when the legs of a character are naked or partially naked

That is vague. I mean technically this is a "partially naked" leg ... https://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=6329644 because the shins are bare.

>whether they are joined or well apart

So basically no point in mentioning either of these.

>especially when you can see this one with their magnificent slightly oval shape

I have no idea what this means.

Needs work.

I thought you might like to know that the wiki description has been updated. There are some clarifications there, courtesy of Nakadashi7. Perhaps you'll find them enlightening.

Personally, I find everything in this whole topic hilarious, especially the analysis, wiki entry and its revision. I've been giggling for a solid five minutes at least and couldn't breathe for a bit of it. Comedy gold 10/10 highly recommend you should all do a sitcom. I'll never look at BLTs the same again.
