Padded Underwear Gives Men A Bigger Bulge

They’ve already created a Spanx-like tummy-tucker undershirt for men, and now Marks & Spencer, the British version of Target, is introducing “bum lift” underpants, that claim to lift men’s bootays by about a fifth, and “frontal enhancement” underwear that uses an “integral shelf,” to give men what the company describes as a “38 percent visual enhancement in size.” Dave Binns, head of M&S men’s underwear, said: “Our technologists have worked hard to engineer two styles that are comfortable to wear and that give real results.

The other day, we did a slideshow of celebrities with random aversions. We told you that Tori Spelling hates water, that Billy Bob Thornton is scared of antique furniture, and that Thomas Jane of “Hung” is extremely anti-shoe.

My friend Kyle is spending three months studying abroad in London. Sure, I’m happy for him. But sometimes I post Facebook status updates about exciting events in my life, like “Today my Subway Sandwich Artist gave me an extra slice of provolone for free!

Heading to a disco tonight after taking a ride on the London Eye and grabbing a pint with Prince Harry. Cheers!” And then I hate my life.

Why Do (Some) Girls Make Out With Other Girls In Public?

The guys over at Asylum think they’ve figured out why those two girls made out with each other in that bar last night while a group of guys watched.

“University of California, Santa Barbara, sociology professor Verta Taylor and feminist studies professor Leila J. Rupp examined the girls-making-out-with-girls phenomenon through a series of interviews with college-age women.

They found that there are four reasons women are now more likely to publicly lock lips …”
