Betty Jane's husband Larry:
"I know you would have enjoyed exploring everything beneath her skirt. She would have giggled and held her skirt down
but we  would be persistent and she would quickly surrender. So with a lot of girly giggles,  our hands and our eyes would have
fun and nothing  would've been off limits. She would have giggled and held her skirt down, but we would be persistent and she would

Occasionally, we run across an archival Update very much worth reposting; this is from 2009:
A
special vidclip  pointed out by Crinolyn - the very charming "No knickers" advertisement from 1987.


This archival is also from 2009: A video link from Crinolyn - this one is a bridal salon video from Russia, but contains some 'interestings.' 
First it looks like a young man  and his female friend are leaving with a petticoat in a plastic bag - she looks apprehensive, almost looking to see if anyone
sees them leaving! About thirty seconds into the  video a young lady prances about a bit in a bridal petticoat.  Later on she tries on several wedding dresses.
