Color and advertising your preferences

February 27, 2015

In my e-mail, a flagrantly gay ad for the men’s underwear site Daily Jocks, offering (among other things) wildly colorful Andrew Christian items and the Identity line from Curbwear, which allows the wearer to advertise (via waistbands and shirts) his preferences in sexual acts. Underwear mostly goes to my X blog, but these items have a linguistic angle, so I’m posting here. No actual genitals, but plenty of cock-teasing and sexual language, so this posting might not be for everyone.

From the Oscar watch

February 23, 2015

I don’t watch the Oscars shows, but you can’t avoid being exposed to information about them and images from them. So this shot of host Neil Patrick Harris (apparently in an allusion to the movie Birdman) from yesterday’s show came my way:

(#1)

Shirtless, showing off his carefully tended body, and in snug briefs, showing off a nice but not extravagant package, in the fashion of underwear ads for many many years. This is the Neil Patrick Harris of, among other things, Doogie Howser, M.D.; How I Met Your Mother; and Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Valentine moose-knuckle

February 14, 2015

(Not much about language)

From Channel 1 Releasing, an ad for a Valentine Day’s special of porn:

Puns are a standard feature of Valentine Day’s greetings: here heart-on (referring to the heart-covered briefs) and hard-on (referring to their contents), differing in stop voicing.

Hunky mysteries of identity

February 13, 2015

(Minimal linguistic interest, lots of male skin.)

From Michael Nieuwenhuizen, with a gasp, this cock-tease photo:

(#1)

I dreamt I went on the internet in my Dolce & Gabbana briefs.

Appreciative viewers then tried to idenfify the model. And obstacles appeared.

Rainbow postings

January 23, 2015

Added this morning, a Page with lists of postings on the rainbow as a gay symbol: on rainbow food, on rainbow underwear, and on other uses of the rainbow flag. I’ll add to these lists as new postings come in.

Who-liday specials

December 10, 2014

Not one, but two. First, a special offer from the BBC Doctor Who Shop. And a special holiday event at the Universal Orlando Resort, featuring Dr. Seuss’s Grinch and the Whos of Whoville.

Mad Bum

November 1, 2014

Following on the World Series triumphs of San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner, the Jockey underwear people have taken advantage of his nickname Mad Bum to produce this double entendre underwear:

Homage to Marky / Mark

October 4, 2014

(The first of two postings with vanishingly little linguistic comment, but plenty of appreciation of male bodies, plus material on the projection of sexuality in photographs. Not technically X-rated, but certainly steamy, so you might want to use your judgment in viewing these postings.)

First, Nick Jonas paying homage (in Flaunt magazine) to the boy-band star and original Underwear God Marky Mark / Mark Wahlberg (hereafter, MM), in this photographic homage to MM’s famous Calvin Klein photos — crotch-grabbing, abs-displaying, flagrantly challenging, and homoerotic all at once.

He’s pulled his jeans down just for us!

Lateral flash thong

June 16, 2014

(Mostly, but not entirely, about men’s underwear.)

On Facebook, a link passed on by Matthew Melmon  to a June 13th posting on the Metro (U.K.) website, “Amazing news! Now you too can own this delightful swimming ‘sock’ “, showing a lateral flash thong on the ITV2 reality tv show TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex):

(#1)

A remarkable garment indeed: how does it stay up? And who wears something like this in public (outside of outrageous precincts like TOWIE)?

December 17, 2013

(Not a lot about language.)

Time for this year’s bulletin on the Santa Skivvy run in Boston:
