More About Thigh Gap Porn

Although standards around beauty are always shifting, the thigh gap emerged as a beauty trend between 2012 and 2013, when a Victoria's Secret show featured several models with noticeable thigh gaps and received significant news coverage as a result.

Thigh gap porn is criticized by some who feel that sexualizing a term that came from communities of vulnerable women may further encourage anorexia, bulimia and other destructive behaviors. Experts say that for most people, a thigh gap is an unrealistic beauty standard.
