Some men — both gay and straight — really enjoy wearing women’s underwear. But for those guys, finding and buying lady lingerie in their own sizes can be difficult. Enter HommeMystere’s line of panties, bras and lingerie made especially for guys’ bodies.
Earlier this month, the Australian company made a splash at the Las Vegas International Lingerie Show, with a provocative runway show featuring men in frilly g-strings, slips and lacy bras. Started by Brent Krause and his wife Lara, HommeMystere aims to make “comfortable men’s panties that really do fit, bra straps that don’t fall off the shoulder, teddies that don’t ride up halfway through the night and quality soft fabrics that feel great for all day wear.” Sounds like something we could all use.

Love is elusive. Therefore, you must find ways to soothe your existential loneliness. I’m not talking about your most reliable booty call because even fun-but-meaningless hookups lose their appeal in times of extreme single angst. The itch you’re trying to scratch is not sex, but LOVE. And boyfriends who love you are so hard to come. Until you trip over one, you’re going to need an alternative (and a many bottles of wine). I present Dutch designer Noortje de Keijzer’s “My Knitted Boyfriend,” a customized man-shaped pillow she calls “Arthur.” As the description on her website says:
“My Knitted Boyfriend is a cushion with a story. A cushion with a personality. A cushion to kiss! Or, well… to cuddle, to caress, to hug, and to smile with. Because this man is always happy. And he is flexible as well. He will have a mustache if you prefer mustaches. He will wear glasses if you prefer glasses. He likes to sit on your floor, on your couch or at you dinner table. But most of all he likes to lay down next to you in bed. With your head on his chest and his arms wrapped around you. This way you will never feel alone ever again. With this man you can be sure, he will never leave you.”

Remember the old “Saturday Night Live” sketch about Antonio Banderas? He’d start to take off his shirt and his back up band would warn “too sexy, too sexy.” Well the real-life version of that sort of happened to Omar Borkan Al Gala. Omar is an actor, poet and musician from Dubai. Last week, he was attending the Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where officials there deemed his male beauty THFSA (too hot for Saudi Arabia). Omar, along with three of his fellow festival attendees, were all deported back to the United Arab Emirates, on the claim that their attractiveness would provoke female attendees into fits of sexual fervor.

We’ve been all about Michael Shannon this week, after his hilariously spot on reading of the mean sorority girl letter. Shannon sits at the intersection of both creepy and hot. It’s very confusing! Like maybe we’ll make out, and then he’ll send me threatening letters in the mail? But Shannon’s not the only one: There are plenty of celebrity dudes who straddle that fine line between being super sexy and total creepazoids. While others? Oh, they’re just creepy. We’ve created this by-no-means comprehensive hot-to-creepy meter. Tell us who else should be on it, and where they might fall on the creepy/hot continuum. Click here to see an enlarged image!
A kilt may not be your best friend because, while it provides easy access to the junk, let’s admit it, it can be hard to get it up for a man in a skirt. (I know, I know. It’s not a skirt, it’s traditional Scottish garb.) Even if he does have a sexy accent and you’ve hired him to power-wash your drain gutters (that wasn’t a pun, that service exists), getting aroused by a kilted man may prove difficult. But according the latest issue of Scottish Medical Journal, we’ll need to get over it because a guy in a kilt is a God amongst men:
“In addition to keeping their scrotum at a cooler temperature, which research proves can boost sperm count, kilt wearers enjoy psychological benefits, such as feeling more masculine and proud and enjoying positive attention from sexual admirers…”
A kilt makes a man both fertile and virile … if you like that kind of thing or if you’re trying to make a baby. And even if you aren’t that into free-hanging fruit, they’ll think you are. Once this news gets out, it’s going to be Tartan Day every day. [Jezebel]
Dear Guy Who Was Arrested For Driving Around With 53 King Cobras In His Car,
No woman can resist a guy who lives a rock n’ roll lifestyle. In fact, I’ve previously written a love letter to a guy who was so obsessed with heavy metal that he was forced to quit his job and receive disability benefits. I thought that dude was hardcore, but daaaaaamn, your badass ways make him seem like a fluffy, cuddly kitten in comparison: you were recently arrested in Vietnam for driving around with 53 king cobras in your car. I’m terrified by this story. And also intrigued. Let’s grab a bite to eat and talk about your rock n’ roll lifestyle. We’ll take my car.
Dear Erwin Lingitz,
I think it was wrong that you got arrested for taking too many free samples from your local Cub Foods. They are FREE SAMPLES for godssakes! It’s not like you stole food. If you want to ravage a lunch meat sample tray, fill a produce bag with 20 cookies from the kids cookie club tray, stuff 16 packets of soy sauce, a half-pound of summer sausage and a pound of beef sticks in your pockets, GO FOR IT. If Cub Foods wants to get all high and mighty about how you violated “societal norms” by taking too many of their free samples, fuck them. They shouldn’t have left all that salami out if they didn’t want it stuffed in a customer’s pocket. I hope you sue them for encouraging you to take free samples and then punishing you for it.

Dan Savage didn’t do half bad for himself judging by these pictures of his husband in his skivvies. Terry Miller showed off his ridiculous abs in a photo shoot for fashion label Mr. Turk. I’m not usually a sucker for a chiseled body but my pulse just surged. Holy crap. I’m a little bit jeally of Dan. [OUT]
Dear Vincent Valvo, AKA The Guy Who Called 911 To Complain About His Mom,
Man, moms can be so annoying, can’t they? Mine used to try to get me to go to bed at 9:30 p.m. when I was a sophomore in high school! Ridiculous, right? And your mom sounds like a real ball-buster, or at least I’m assuming she is, because you called 911 not once, but twice in one night to complain that you “didn’t like the way she was talking to you.”
You were arrested after making the second call, but if you ever want someone to vent to in the future, you can give me a ring!
I am in the midst of an apartment search right now. It is annoying, frustrating, and anxiety-producing, but it is just Something That Must Happen. Somewhat more exasperating than just looking for an apartment is the fact that I am also seeking a roommate situation, which has led me to where else but that great cesspool of all things terrible and soul-crushing, Craigslist. Just how soul-crushing could it possibly be?, you inquire, doubting my integrity and ability to separate Truly Bad Things from Simply Irritating Ones because I am a young and very sensitive woman inclined to hyperbole and melodrama. Here, I present to you an actual post I was led to by my innocent hunt for a suitable (female) housemate. I would now like to wash my hands, and then maybe sew up my vagina. Inquire within!
