The fringe is just further away, I think.

And I as I get older, what is "fringe" to me, is "quaint" or "old fashioned" to people younger than me.

Sex has always been the taboo in American culture... but the resurgence of burlesque, circus arts, and alternative sexual definitions and orientations, means the fringe is just further out there. And I won't be the one to define it. I'll be the one lamenting the "good ole days" when I could watch a "proper" burlesque act where the performer only took her top off...
