    Exclamation Get a load of this...

    Thank you Mamamax for posting this earlier today, but it HAS to have it's own thread.

    This appears to be the actual Dr. Weiss (of the Schroth fame), possibly singing in his OWN video on YouTube. Appears to be made in the early 1990s, judging by the clothes and hairstyles, as well as the copyright that appears below. You have got to check this out, if not for the shock value than for a laugh. Personally, it scares me.

    Here is what is posted on YouTube below the video:
    "Music and words: Bibi Doc 1995 - 2010, converted from DVD format by using iSkysoft DVD Ripper freeware.
    This project has been established for patients suffering from scoliosis and needing a correcting brace. The idea arose from the experience, that many patients with scoliosis suffer from brace treatment a lot and also those who would not admit this. So it seems necessary to support self imaging of this group of patients because they have a spinal curve, but they are certainly not crooked and very lovely........"

    Wowza, what a PERV! And aren't those young ladies a little old to be wearing braces?

    I find the last video the most disturbing as he's loving caressing the torso molds. I would never let him near my child, that's for sure.

    I was going to use the word 'creepy' - but disturbing is just as accurate.

    What a wacko!

    There's something kind of strange about using a physical handicap for sexual attraction. It reminds me that there are several apparently NEW fetishes afloat (we know these things thanks to Google's "watering hole" phenomenon) - for example, men who are massively attracted to amputees. Likewise, those who are deliberately amputated!

    And a woman in a tight corset seems to hold great appeal to some. I can easily see those braces with spangly conical bras on top next, can't you?

    It seems like one of those things that was "good on paper" ("help the girls feel beautiful not in spite of their problem but BECAUSE OF") - but just didn't make it in real life.

    Note, though, that the viewings are very low About what you'd expect from family members - and us!
    Not all diagnosed (still having tests and consults) but so far:
    Ehler-Danlos (hyper-mobility) syndrome, 69 - somehow,
    main curve L Cobb 60, compensating T curve ~ 30
    Flat back, marked lumbar kyphosis (grade?) Spondilolisthesis - everyone gives this a different grade too. Cervical stenosis op'd 3-07, minimally invasive

    Oh my goodness! I actually listened to it this time! What's up with the fetish for young girls wearing a brace? REALLY creepy! Everything just oozed sexuality and was SOOO inappropriate. Whoever said "To Catch A Predator" really nailed it. Wow, so disturbing!
