Zettai ryouiki 絶対領域

Definition: Area of the leg between the bottom of the skirt and the top of knee-high stockings.


The exposed leg area is the "absolute territory/zettai ryouiki"

Here, Mitsuki shows the perfect example of "Absolute Territory" (zettai ryouiki). The idea that this is a turn on is because the less you can see actually leaves more for the imagination to work its magic - in another words it's a big tease and that's why people like it. Or in another way of thinking about it it's like cleavage of the legs - you aren't actually seeing anything indecent per se, but doesn't mean people don't like to take a peak and picture what the rest of the "goods" are like. -Nanaholic
