There is no question that Michael Phelps is the sexiest US swimmer. I’m confused by the attention given to the uber douchie Ryan Lochte. Seeing him in his goggles and suggestive yet minimal speedo is an inspiration for swimming, bathing, or just lust.
Mormon Undies as Fetish Wear
It seems almost too good to be true. With Republican presidential candidate Mittens Romney in the race against Obama, there’s a growing awareness of the Mormon “faith.” And now perverts everywhere can order genuine Mormon underwear from this website (mens and womens available). What’s up with the over the (male) nipple stitching?! Check out www.MormonSecret.com. Via Dan Savage.
Wentz is in his undies in Ginza
Walking in Ginza, I looked up and saw this BVD underwear ad. Wow, that guy looks like my favorite dim-witted but adorable Japanese talent, Wentz. Oh, that is Wentz!
I love how his pale thighs are adding to the vulgarization of this once sophisticated shopping district.
Newspaper shows off how to use new undies
I have no idea what makes this underwear how-to display newsworthy, but it appeared on the Asahi newspaper (thanks, hubb, for sending this in). Is there some technical breakthrough that entices suited men to open the fly for you? I particularly like the “helper’s” fancy cuff: an upscale salaryman look.
Just when I feel jaded about the blogosphere, I discovered a new blog InvisibleGaijin that mixes wicked satire and faux news with a focus on men’s fashion. Swoon.
The above is from InvisibleGaijin’s story about Japanese underwear, which connects undergarment obsession with recession and soshoku danshi (herbivores), and in part reads:
Self-professed gaijin with love/hate relationship with Japan, Fuzakeruna Konogaijinme, commented, “Japanese salarymen always turn inwards in recessions, peering into their navels in hopes no one notices they don’t do shit at work. Underwear that makes your balls feel good always sells.”

Japanese men behaving badly
A week full of scandals and bad behavior. Above is Oshio Manabu, an actor and pop singer, who fled the house of a woman with whom he did Ecstasy after she fell ill. He called his manager and left without calling for medical help. Later, she died. Now And now Manabu’s wife is divorcing him.
The second scandal involves “self-proclaimed professional surfer” Takaso Yuichi busted for amphetamine stuffed in his underwear who blamed his wife, popular actress Sakai Noriko. She fled the city but was arrested today after leaving her son at the home of her husband’s mistress.
Sadly I can’t find a photo of alleged surfer Takaso (Above is Takaso, thanks to an anonymous tipster, unfortunately not caught in surfer action), although I was charmed to hear that the government has pulled the wife’s movie promoting the new lay jury system in Japan. Apparently they don’t want a fictional “juror” who is a real life suspect.
The Japanese press is finding many warnings that Noripi was corrupted by her husband of ten years. Why she even got a tattoo last year: a clear signal of descent into depravity, no?
Early last year a tattoo was spotted on her left ankle, something not considered in keeping with her pure and innocent image. Showbiz sources say she had lost a lot of weight and was behaving erratically lately.
And lastly here is Noripi singing her “Blue Rabbit” (Aoi Usagi) song:
