Many laws have played a part in censoring sexuality in the media: movies, magazines, etc. It was obscene for a woman to show their ankles. Men became aroused by a woman's ankle. They were not allowed to reveal their ankle in public until the 1900's. It was still scandalous for the rich and famous show their ankles.
