6,000 euros crotchless undies?

I post so rarely that I feel guilty about it. So... here is one from me... sorry if it isn't up to the usual standard.

For the last couple of days, I've seen on the national French 8pm news snippets of the International Lingerie Fair. Not certain, but I think it's held in Paris - not that the location matters, what matters is this:

From what I hear, the *designers* (read: the marketing groups behind) have worked out there is not that much creativity future (read: "dough") to be achieved in 2005 from selling 50 euros pairs of sexy undies. Maybe the males out there see their dicky wicky go flacid when they get their bankcard statements.

Kick in the small time purchasing male balls? Not sure, but somehow, those brilliant marketing ppl have worked out the REAL marketing strategy lies in dealing with REAL ppl, i.e those who won't blink an eye at forking out 6,000 euros for a crotchless pair of undies.

Apart from the obvious fact that crotchless undies should cost less than normal ones since there is a huge fuckin' (excuse the pun) gaping hole in them, the one thing that really beats me is:

How is this going to feed the starving children of Africa?

Or maybe I got it wrong and it is about getting them African kids to eat pussy en masse. Maybe the European (and other) females concerned are going to spread their legs in the wilderness of Africa and feed the starving children?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for eating pussies, it's a good and wholesome pastime, and very holy too - at least in my heathen way of looking at life. But I fail to see the humanitarian value in creating 6,000 euros undies to achieve this noble purpose. What is wrong with those rich guys? Can't they get a stiffy without paying megabucks for it?

PS: this is for guys only - you girls, go chat & smoke something good:

Do any of you guys need a 6,000 euros pair of undies to feel sexually attracted to your wife or girlfriend? Please re-assure me that I'm not a weirdo nutcase for not needing that kind of apparel to get the horn.

“And thats a right honourable one!”.

Glad you think so, D1. Plus, it has definite advantages, like no need to worry about contraception and abortion and other nasties. In fact I wonder why Bush hasn't made it his priority in US sex education.

“I got a cousin that says yer wrong ”.

egad....you know, the thought of it crossed my mind while writing... but some inner blockage in me I confess, very politically incorrect I admit... well whatever the official reason, I shiver at the thought.

On a lighter note... I'm kind of LMAO at the idea of guys wearing crotchless undies... what a sight it must be... OMG, I think I need to take another shot of vodka.

LOL...well, my wife would be more than happy to see me run around in crotchless undies...but I'll be damned if I can find them in Men's sizes.

BTW, has anyone heard Larry the Cable Guy's take on crotchless undies?

When asked by his significant other, who was wearing a pair, "Want some of this?", he replied "Dang, girl, NO! Look what it did to yer undershorts!"

Lord, please forgive me...I realize it was totally off topic of striving for peace and justice, etc., etc...

Actually I was referring to lesbians...although I think I would pay good money to see my boyfriend wear crotchless panties, if only to blackmail him with later :)

“...but I'll be damned if I can find them in Men's sizes”.

They do come about, but you're now looking at 12,000 euros price tags. Quality holes don't come cheap nowadays, and the bigger the hole....

“...I realize it was totally off topic of striving for peace and justice...”.

Not at all. Little to do with peace, true, but lots to do with justice - or rather lack of. At least, it's the way it strikes me :-)

Considering where they go, I'd say 50 euros is too much to spend on underwear.

Okay, Sarah, you got my attention...

Call me a pig, but I have no problem with lesbians...

BUT, on the other hand, my wife LOVES "Queer As Folk"...and I SQUIRM at the gay love scenes.

Okay, she's a reverse pig...

...or a closet transexual...

I don't wanna think about that...

LOL.

...and have we all gotten off the "Saving Humanity" topic or what?

Just a reminder...We do not (at least not yet) delete users comments except in the case of posting screwups. The 2 comments above that are no longer there are an example and in fact (grrr) I only deleted 1 of the double posted comments. I now have to re-post the comment. If it shows up 2,3,4 times I am going to leave it!!!!????

In an attempt to bring this class to order...LOL

phillipe, you're not a weirdo-nutcase for saying that. my husband is always telling me "it's just gonna come off. what's the point?"


personally, i have dropped and obscene amount of money at victoria's secret in my lifetime. (but not only for me. i get things for my girlfriends occasionaly, and that very sexy for him smells awesome on my hubby) but i don't wear cheap underwear. and i don't mean that to sound snotty or anything. but i would much rather spend 15 or 20 bucks (unless it semi-annual sale and clearance time lol) on panties and 30 bucks on a bra and have them last 2 or 3 or even more years because the are well made, then spend 4 bucks every couple of months on some cheap panties that half the time the seam rubs against your legs and you end up with marks. but i have never worn crotchless underwear.

“... then spend 4 bucks every couple of months on some cheap panties that half the time the seam rubs against your legs and you end up with marks....”.

Or worse: those that give you wedgies. Gosh I hate wedgies.

Well, as you say, 20 bucks once in a while for something that doesn't fall apart after 3 days sounds very reasonable to me. As to 6,000 for undies with a big hole in them.... I think it's obscene (not the hole, the money, I mean). It's an insult to the poverty in this world. Reminds me of Bush's 40 million wanky party.

I've been trying to decided whether to weigh in on this for two days....

I keep picturing all these women running off to Africa to feed the children... and then I try to decide who's sicker. WhyNot for coming up with the idea or me for thinking? Would that work? Oy.

Shoot me now.
