Peek a boo

A Nymph and a Satyr attributed to Pierre-Charles Trémolières (1703-1739).
Note the difference between a Nymph and a nympho : a nympho would stay awake for the debauchery.
Unlike this painting by François Boucher, this just seems pervy. And not pervy in the good, just doing my part to continue the survival of the species way but the creepy kind of pervy. The voyeuristic eagle on the left doesn't help.
I imagine clothes that cling to you with no visible means of support like the satyr's outfit wouldn't be that comfortable.
