French retailer Inderwear describe their String Latéral Flash Bleu Alter underwear as “original and ultra sexy” one-sided g-strings that provide “comfort and lateral support by the [fabric's] high elastane content.”
I would like to hear from the guys here. Is the one-sided banana hammock thong a comfortable cut? Just curious. I would like to go on record saying that if I undressed a man and he was wearing these, he would be my new hero. Guys, you can buy a pair here if you want to impress the special lady in your life. Just make sure she has a sophisticated sense of humor. [Laughing Squid]
Listen, I am a professional who writes about dating and men and sex on the internet, and I’ve been around the block once or twice or 25 times on top of that, so I am clearly not naive to the many things men do that are … Odd. Interesting. Gross. They cup their balls like Al Bundy. They measure their dicks. They do the mangina. Bravo. Yawn. So that’s why it came as such a surprise that the extensive chain of replies to a thread on Reddit asking “What are some things you are sure all guys do or have done?” actually managed to produce shock and awe. And plenty of those WTF things appeared in the replies multiple times indicating — statistically! — that, yes, men in general (with some exceptions of course) actually do them with regularity. (And most of them have something to do with their dicks. Which is not shocking.) So, without further ado, here are the things every man does… Keep reading »
Wood Thumb is a startup company in San Francisco that turns old pieces of wood into brand new … neck ties. Yep, wooden neckties. The accessories are one-of-a-kind thanks to natural variations in the woods, and flexible thanks to a unique design: the wood is cut into smaller pieces and connected by an elastic cord that runs lengthwise through the tie. I’m not sure what the going rate is for an upcycled wooden tie these days, but the company offers two sizes for $36 each, which actually seems like a pretty good deal. You know, if you’re into that sort of thing. So, how do we feel about wooden ties? Quirky? Dapper? Obnoxious? Would you buy one for your man? [Buzzfeed]
Most of what we know about ancient cultures is based on their technology. We know what they ate based on the grains that are mashed into their stoneware and what they did for fun based on the absence of video games in their little mud huts. Similarly, we can tell a great deal about modern douchebags by the apps that they’re apparently spending money on. These are apps that could only be used by a very specific type of person. If you’re a regular person, your regular-person shield (otherwise known as common human decency) will repel you from apps like … Keep reading »
Your boyfriend’s Cocksox are very important to him. Just like your Wonderbra, he says, his Cocksox does the critical work of lifting and displaying his magnificent penis, for all the world to see. Echoing the words of Cocksox creative director Nadiah Kanawaty, Cocksox allow your boyfriend to go about his day with a “sexy secret” in his trousers. Of course, there was the disturbing incident at the playground, where your boyfriend’s Cocksox lead to some of the parents mistakenly believing he was inappropriately aroused. And so, yes, perhaps now he’s not allowed within 50 meters of a school, but it’s a small price to pay for a push-up bra for the penis. [Cocksox]
It seems like no corner of the beauty industry will be left unturned when it comes to finding ways to market to men. The newest beauty trend for guys? The MANicure. Yes, despite the fact that there’s absolutely nothing inherently gendered in nail polish colors, several companies have developed “man-friendly” polishes. A company annoyingly named Alphanail, for instance, claims that its line of fugly colors is “designed by men. Worn by warriors.” Oh, warriors, you say?

Imagine a car that runs on tap water and never breaks down or needs replacement parts — would you drive it? We forgot to mention that it’s shaped like a giant clown penis.
Humans are funny creatures — we tend to shun any product, no matter how useful, if it makes us look ridiculous. That’s why virtually none of you own … Keep reading »
Is KFC branching out into prophylactics? No, although that would be, um, interesting. This here rubber is just one of the many mock-ups of corporate-sponsored condoms on the kickass Tumblr blog, New Condoms. I’m partial to the M&M’s condom myself! Though I don’t know how dudes will feel about a condom that suggests “It melts in your mouth, not in your hands.” Melt is usually one of those verbs that shouldn’t be used to reference the peen.

No, this is the best press release we’ve received as staffers at The Frisky. That one is now the second best. Keep reading »
I guess what’s good for the goose is really good for the gander. Or at least what’s good for Jennifer Love Hewitt is also good for … guys. We’ve been making fun of the art of vajazzling for years now. But now it appears that one dude—British reality television star Mark Wright, to be exact—is trying to make the same trend of sticking Swarovski crystals to your downtown areas in cutesy patterns happen for men. And yes, he is calling it “pejazzling.”
“Men wear diamond watches and bling earrings—this is no different,” he explains. Keep reading »
