Boxer Jeans Are The New WTF Underwear For Men

Both boxers and jeans are so comfortable for men. Why not combine the two? A Japanese company has made JeanPants, a pair of boxer-briefs printed to look like denim cutoffs, according to Styleite. Why any guy would want to look like he’s wearing denim cutoffs a la Jessica Simpson in “The Dukes Of Hazzard” i…

Chord Overstreet Shows His Undies, Explains He Didn’t Change His Name To Get A “Glee” Audition

 

Too adorable for his own good, Chord Overstreet stopped by for an interview with Ellen DeGeneres yesterday and, during their conversation, revealed that he was wearing the gold undies he rocked in the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” episode of “Glee.” Ellen told him to prove it, at which point he unbuttoned hi…

But thankfully, Jockey has created cooling underwear, which soothes your burning firecrotch with state-of-the-art technology from NASA!. Says the company, “The Outlast® temperature regulating technology behind Jockey® staycool underwear hel…

Panties That Make Your Pubic Area Appear Well-Groomed

Sometimes a gal wakes up and realizes she has a specialty in life. In the journalism world, they call that a “beat.” And apparently, weird panties are my beat. Last week, I told you about panties with built-in liners which ensure your period — even when menstrual blood is leaking in your drawers — i…

Feel Sexy, Even When Your Tampon Is Leaking

So, yesterday, I ruined what I estimate to be my 57th pair of panties and stained a perfectly good pair of pajama bottoms when my tampon had a major leak. It was not a very sexy moment. But it could have been, if I had only been wearing a pair of Sexy Period panties! These…

Elisabetta Canalis In Her, Err, Roberto Cavalli’s, Undies

George Clooney‘s girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, looks pretty darn smokin’ in this new Roberto Cavalli underwear ad, her second for the designer. “For my new underwear collection I chose Elisabetta again. My ideal of a woman: charm, charisma and sensuality, united together,” Roberto explained in a statement. “With her Mediterranean beauty and intense gaze she’s interpreted…

The Evolution Of Men’s Underwear

For the first decade of my sexually active life, every guy I encountered wore boxer shorts. The pattern varied—sometimes stripes, sometimes plaid, sometimes something surprising like rubber duckies—as did the elasticity of the waistband. But I could be sure that when a guy’s pants came off, I would find boxers underneath.

But over the…

The 5 Types Of Period Panties

Every woman’s got ‘em: the panties ruined by Nature’s special, beautiful, magical gift to your ladyparts. You might be thrilled that Bingo’s tadpoles didn’t penetrate the love glove, but that still doesn’t mean you aren’t pissed your white, lacy Victoria’s Secret thong looks like a Jackson Pollack painting.

Typically, girls wear sexy underwear at…

Is Olivia Munn’s Maxim Cover Too Hot For Newstands?

Maxim‘s never been known to shy away from a risque cover, and this month’s cover shot, of “Perfect Couples” star and “Daily Show” contributor Olivia Munn, is no different. The big scandal is Olivia’s see-through underwear, which some say are just a tiny toe over the edge to indecent. Dan Gainor, Vice President of Busine…

I’ll Go Commando Before I’ll Wear $40 Cotton Underwear

I read (and by “read” I mean “look,” as there aren’t many words to begin with) Lucky religiously every month. For the most part, the clothes featured in the magazine are outside my price range (at least at full price), but I always get something out of the issue. I’ll discover a cool new beauty…

This Exists: Garter Belts For Guys

So here we are again. The ever-persisting problem of men who think baggy pants are still suh-weet. Recently, we heard about a high school which has taken to “Urkeling” offending students—making kids with too-baggy pants wear suspenders and forcing them to hike their trousers up high, Steve Urkel-style. Sadly, this invention you see before you—”Subs,”…

Change Your Underwear, Change Your Mood

Ladies, need a quick pick-me-up? Do a panty swap. I hate the word “panty,” by the way. And “panty swap” just sounds wrong. But seriously, a new phone survey, conducted by Shop Smart magazine, found that your undies can affect your mood. Out of the 1,000 women that were surveyed, 47 percent said that they…

I See London, I See France … And Queen Elizabeth’s Underpants

Why celebrities should never, ever accidentally leave belongings behind: they will surely end up on the internet or up for auction. That’s what’s going on with a pair of Queen Elizabeth‘s underpants—if you can even call them that—that she apparently left on a plane way back in 1968. For some 40 years, they had bee…

The World’s Largest Undies

Classified as size XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL (or size 74), these are the world’s largest undies on the market. If you are considering buying a pair of these (to wear, not to clean your house with), it may be time to consider a weight-loss program. [BuzzFeed]…

How To Keep Your Private Parts Private In Airport Security

Rebellion against the new TSA airport security measures is beginning to escalate. People are already pulling stunts, inventing protective pasties, and this coming Wednesday (“Opt Out Day”) promises to bring the drama (we’re secretly dying to see what happens even though it’s sure to cause a major air travel hassle). For those who wish to…

David Beckham To Launch Underwear Line Because This Apparently Needs To Exist

Soccer Star and Man Who Gets Paid To Take His Shirt Off David Beckham has announced that he’ll be launching a line of men’s underwear. Wait—so this didn’t already exist before? Beckham is known for walking around in his skivvies, perhaps most famously in his hot Armani underwear ads. So to us it seems 100…

The Victoria’s Secret Runway Show: A Sneak Peek At The Crazy Outfits

Surely, there is nothing that says “America” like the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Every year, a posse of well-known (and some not so much) and drop-dead gorgeous women parade up and down a runway wearing underwear paired with totally strange costumes. It’s like Halloween threw up on Christmas and then someone threw a pair of…

Blast Boxers: For The Guy Who Is Really Protective Of His Privates

We understand that guys hold their private parts in the greatest of esteem (hence the term “family jewels”), but perhaps some men might be a bit too overprotective of their junk. Which is probably why Blast Boxers exist. Originally developed for men in the military, the underwear features a special high-strength material that acts a…

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…

Behold, A Sculpture Made Out Of Underpants

Figuring out what to do with old or unwanted undies is quite the conundrum, am I right? You can’t take them to the Salvation Army; you can’t use them as dishrags ’cause that would be weird, but it feels wrong to throw them away. Swiss-born artist Pipilotti Rist figured out just how to recycle undergarments:…
