Goth subculture is often misunderstood by outsiders as something nefarious when in fact it’s a joyful contemporary subculture that began in England during the 1980s as part of the Gothic rock scene that splintered off as a post-punk musical genre. Goth imagery and style is heavily influenced by 19th century Gothic literature, iconic horror films the power-exchange principles of the BDSM sub-culture and dirty thoughts of sexual conquest.
Someone seeking the company of a Goth with pale skin, dark hair, and a severe sense of style would be well advised to become fully aware of the social and cultural history of the Goth movement, including a strong musical vibe drawn from Gothic rock, Deathrock, Post-Punk, Darkwave, Ethereal, Industrial and Neoclassical formats. It’s not the sort of thing you can become well-versed in by browsing Wikipedia, so many newbies look to join strong online communities like Goth Date Link and Goth Scene when starting out.
