To put it mildly, this younger suitor is getting a very privileged viewpoint of his beloved on the swing: he can look up her dress! She, in turn, kicks off her shoe (a symbol of sexuality) in the direction of the young suitor. I think that the shoe also seems to fly in the air as a defiant gesture toward the cupid figure on the right, who holds a cautionary finger to his lips (seen by some as a symbol of discretion).

She may not be faithful to the older person who is pushing her.

Because she was losing a shoe when she posed. Maybe he thought it was provacative.
