Forget about comprehensive sex ed. The best way to keep girls off “16 & Pregnant” is with pro-abstinence panties and T-shirts bearing slogans like “Zip It,” “Not Tonight” and “Dream On” sold on a site called What Would Your Mother Do?. According to WWYMD:
We created a line of underwear to use as conversation starters to help reinforce family morals as they relate to relationships and dating. One part Victorian, three parts frisky, these adorable undies put new meaning to saying it loud and proud.”
At last someone has realized that the first thing teen boys do after taking off a girl’s pants is read the slogan on her underwear. [What Would Your Mother Do? via Ms. Magazine] Keep reading »
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” is beyond me. If a guy whipped off his Levi’s to reveal denim-esque boxers underneath, I would laugh and laugh.
However, here is the real question: is this sartorial atrocity better or worse than a href=”http://www.thefrisky.com/tag/jeggings”>jeggings? [Japan Trend Shop via Styleite] Keep reading »
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 his pants and showed off a pair of yellow undies that read “Ellen ‘s got my tight end covered.” He also explained that Chord isn’t at all a stage name—he’s the third child born to musician parents who chose the name because there are three notes in a chord. Cute. Keep reading »
Lady parts can sometimes be way complicated. I mean, doesn’t your vagina sometimes overheat? It’s not like your body naturally regulates its temperature or anything. 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 helps your skin feel up to 3° cooler.” And we’re sure it really works. After all, it was initially developed by NASA scientists to “help balance temperature fluctuations in space.” Space! (Your vagina is just like space.)
So we wanna know if any of you have tried these soothing ladypants? Do they really keep your vag icy cool, like a delicious stick of wintergreen Dentyne gum? Let us know! [Fashionista] Keep reading »
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 — is a sexy time. Today, I am all about underwear which allow you to test out a new pubic hair design before having it ripped out from the root by your trusted waxer. Trim & Proper panties are basic nude cotton panties with little, suggestive pubic hair designs on the front. Also, according to the About Us page, these panties “cover mishaps, misshapes and outright neglect,” which I guess is why they’re nude-colored? So that from far away you look naked and well-groomed? But to whom? Peeping Toms? I am confused. But at least these are cheaper than the panties that soak up your period leakage. [$16, Trim & Proper] Keep reading »
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 very real, very purchasable undergarments are sold with three absorbent, leak-resistant layers built in, that way, if your ‘pon leaks, the spill will be soaked up by the crotch fabric. No ruined clothing! No public embarrassment! Just a super sexy bloody mess in your pants that’s your little secret. Keep reading »
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 an intriguing and super-feminine woman.” [People] Keep reading »
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 last few years, I’ve noticed an evolution in men’s underwear choices. Keep reading »
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 all times because, even if we know no one is going to see them, we just feel better about ourselves when we know we look pretty underneath. But the three to seven days of the month when all we do is cry and eat Cherry Garcia is an exception! Whether they were formerly cute panties sneak attacked by Aunt Flo or nasty knickers you bought just to stain, here are the five types of period panties every woman’s got: Keep reading »
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 Business & Culture at the conservative Media Research Center, is outraged by Munn’s bare crotch. “It’s disgusting,” he said. “Maxim has moved their magazine from tawdry to full-on pornography.” He’s calling for the magazine to be displayed in the porn section of the magazine rack, rather than the men’s interest section–far away from the prying eyes of kids. (Of course, the deep irony is that conversation around the cover has only served to give the magazine greater exposure.)
Maxim covers typically feature scantily clad girls practically shoving their crotches in reader’s faces. So we’re not sure why Munn’s panty choice makes all that much difference. Maxim‘s never been particularly prudish. And it seems even Fox News followers agree: A poll on the site found that a whopping 72 percent of people saw no problem with the cover. What do you think?
