    Context is everything.

    I loved and lost somewhere this ancient photo of a "Draper's Assistant" who had been photographed because he suffered from that most nefarious of Victorian diseases, "chronic masturbation."

    It was all presented in a very textbooky fashion.

    I think about that guy every few months my entire life I think.

    I wonder if he knew how fucked it all was.

    Or if they made him feel like a leper until the day he died.

    The Poor Draper's Assistant.

    The Draper himself was probably the biggest wanker in town.

    And a squealer.
