    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!

    Thank you. I showed this video to my hubby and told him I could not believe what a freak this guy is and that he apparently hasn't been arrested.

    This is his website:
    http://www.scoliosisxpert.com/uk/pageuk.php?va=1

    I tried to compare the photos to see if it's really the doc in the videos, and it looks like it could be him maybe 15 years ago--when it appears these videos were made.

    Also scary, the link to his own YouTube channel. Click on BibiDocWeiss on the top left next to the video. Look at the photo in the background on his channel. Looks like some kind of concentration camp for scoliosis victims, but I'm guessing it's the original Schroth clinic.

    Well... no jury in the land would convict me of being concerned.

    But seriously... about that line in the one song about the brace being no better lover. I think someone, no names, has conveniently forgotten about the millions of Spanish men out there.
