Why Did the French Maid Fantasy Become so Popular? 

One of the most common roleplay scenarios is the French maid fantasy, but how did it become so popular? 

The short answer is: because it’s hot. 

The long answer is: because it has reached sexual symbol status, making it even more erotic and scandalous. Its popularity has heightened the erotic elements of this outfit, making its trademark white apron, mini-skirt, high heels, and feather duster all the more enticing and titillating. 

This fetishized costume had become a mainstay in the BDSM community, or for couples experimenting with dominant and submissive roles. Rooted in a history of French housemaids being hired by wealthy men to come over and do a bit more than cleaning, this costume has become synonymous with sexual domination.

Where Did the Naughty French Maid Outfit Come From? 

Obviously, French maid costumes derive inspiration from France, but you’d be let down to know that actual French maids do not wear anything close to resembling them.

After all, it can be a bit difficult to scrub toilets and vacuum when you’re wearing stiletto heels, a mini skirt, and fishnets.

The stereotypical slinky, sultry French maid costume actually originated from theatrical performances. In the 19th century, Can-Can dancers in Paris were infamous for their “public nudity” which would cause the nightclubs they performed at to get shut down. Of course, the “public nudity” was actually just a sliver of their thigh they revealed when dancing. 

To make fun of this common occurrence, American burlesque shows would stage comedy skits where oblivious, hapless French housekeepers who were scantily clad would find themselves in compromising and revealing situations. 

The dresses that these actors wore are similar to present-day naughty French maid lingerie. They were skimpy enough to titillate audiences but not so revealing that the burlesque would get shut down by censors.
