In response to Elizabeth’s ‘Boxers and Briefs‘ I offer this rebuttal. Now I know I’m treading on thin ice here. When a lady talks about men’s underpants, it often considered cute or foxy. When I guy talks about a woman’s under garments, we are usually considered hound dogs. Ah well, into the breach…
The models in the ‘typical ad’ in most cases make eye contact. Based on this I think the audience for this clothing item is both male and female. Even when they are wearing functional only panties, like the lady on the left in this picture, only very sexy women are used as models. I wonder if is it a requirement to have long hair to be a panty model.
So I thought I’d borrow some of Elizabeth’s provocative questions and ask them here for the other gender to consider.
Do women really stand around in their underwear admiring themselves?
Do women models need to be “fitted” into their underwear? What are the qualifiers for that job?
Do women judge themselves on how much alike they look to the women who model the underwear?
Is there a woman alive who will admit to wearing one of these?
So here are my questions for those who wear women’s underwear.
1. Have you ever worn thong underwear outside of the bedroom? Why?
2. Have you ever worn granny panties, ever?
3. Do you usually match your underwear to your socks?
For those of you who may ask, “What does thongs and grannies have to do with playing saxophone?” I say, hey, we all wear ’em, and saxophonists play better with clean ones. ;o)
Update: Elaine (and apparently Oprah) recommend the hanky panky thong.
