Male Order

Because in my time I have purchased lingerie from catalogues and online retailers I tend to be on a lot of mailing lists. Today I received a lovely little brochure in the post, with the usual array of corsets, basques, vibrators, and impractical footwear on display. Imagine my delight when I discovered, lurking among the French Maid and Naughty Nurse outfits the following "sexy" little numbers for men.

I laughed. A lot. My daughter came to look over my shoulder. "It's so nice that men have to wear these sorts of stupid outfits as well now," she opined, after the initial shriek of hilarity.

We were particularly taken with the skimpy camouflage knickers, above.

Tell me, I have to know - has anyone ever bought this sort of thing for the men in their life not as a joke? Men - have you ever purchased such an outfit to liven up things in the bedroom? And if so, did it stimulate more than a bout of giggling?

Not so long ago I did have a set of surgical blues but only because they were comfortable to slob around in.

Not, perhaps, the image one would wish to create in the bedroom as part of a sex game ...

*sweet* cops wife said...

Okay...I just spit my coffee out laughing out loud at the second one....What is that *thing* attached to his underthong...that CANT be all HIM???

The closest I came was having my hubby pose nude wearing his gun belt....Lord I hope the children don't find that one! :)

Trixie said...

I'd order the first one, as long as the guy came with it! CORRRR!

I dressed up as a cop once, but it was a special occassion. (And it was lovely!)

My Scotsman is going to wear a kilt for Halloween, but that's as far as it will go...don't think I could handle the surgical attire for I already work in the medical field -no thrills there!

Caracala said...

I haven't seen them for in the bedroom, but have seen several skimpy outfits like that for Halloween. How those men can bear to go out like that, I will never know, lol.

*waves hellllllooooooooo*

if my man dressed up in a surgical mask i would be a little annoyed at the insinuation.

back online a mere 20 minutes and i already have RSI .. xxx

Freddy said...

I have a leopardskin pair of very brief briefs which elicited the response that I anticipated when i bought them....

laughter, followed by a very urgent removal!

I did open the bedroom door wearing nothing but boxers, hi-viz vest and a hardhat...

same result :-)

Baby said...

OMG - I'd snort and howl with laughter and end up emasculating any poor man I was with if he thought to spice things up in anything such as those in the pics... (from experience and similar to Freddy's comment above!! Long time ago, ruined the moment when the guy came to the bed in leopard print thong!)

Helga Hansen said...

I'll have the top outfit, but only if the man modelling comes with the goods. If not, I am not interested!!

I wonder if Ro would model his scrubs for us in a similar pose for HNT?

Ro said...

I would, Helga - after all, I need an idea for this week - but I no longer have them.

Sorry!

Luka said...

Ro - were they as skimpy as the ones in the picture?

Sweet Cops Wife - maybe it's where he keeps a spare packet of Hobnobs?

Trixie - unfortunately the chances of seeing this in real life on anyone lightly tanned, toned and under 40 are slim to none.

Trumpeter - uniforms (proper, non skimpy, authoratitive, manly uniforms) are an entirely different matter.

SomeChileanWoman - a kilt, eh? Worn traditionally?

Caracala - I am perplexed by the plethora of "sexy" halloween outfits in general.

Carnalis - hello! It's worse if it's a gas mask :)

Freddy - my mind is boggling!

Baby - there is still this weird "comedy" focus on male eroticwear. The novelty posing pouches, funny face thongs, that sort of thing. There is a culture of finding dangly bits amusing, I think.

Helga - I'm afraid the attractive male model is not part of the deal - and our resident attractive male HNT model can't help us either, I see.

Riff Dog said...

That camouflage getup wouldn't get any giggles out of me. It would get me outright laughing my head off.

Ro said...

Skimpy? Hell, no - they were practical, genuine scrubs of the type that would be worn in theatre.

Still, it was worth commenting just to be able to delude myself that when you spoke about your resident attractive male HNT model you were referring to me!

Luka said...

Riff Dog - on the plus side, a good sense of humour is always a plus in the bedroom, if those personal ads are to be believed.

Ro - I have a feeling that practical is probably sexier than skimpy in this instance. (And who else would I be referring to?

Ro said...

Sexier I don't know about; more to my taste, though, for sure!

As for the other matter, oh, there are so many men ... :)
