The Thong: R.I.P.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I know that most of you come to Proof Positive for the fast breaking, exposé of the latest foibles and fumblings of the politicians of the day. Well, as far as exposure goes, this next story gets to the bottom of a new fashion trend. According to that Bible of most you political junkies, Cosmopolitan:

A little more than 10 years ago, the Macarena was a hit, the Rachel haircut was in, and wearing a thin strip of fabric between your butt cheeks was considered daringly sexy. Thankfully, the dance is now socially unacceptable, and those layers have grown out. But what about the thong? Although our love for it has endured, its popularity appears to be fading, and recent figures show another style is taking over.

Butt floss is on it's way out??? Say it ain't so! Heh.

No doubt, male fans appreciate the fact that boy shorts make our asses look so amazing. Let's face it, unless you're blessed with Gisele–like DNA, it's likely that a string bisecting your backside wasn't doing your figure any favors. Most boy shorts have a seam running down the middle of the butt, which accentuates the curvature of the bum for any body, giving the illusion of a Kardashian–style keister, says Campello. And even seamless boy shorts enhance your bootyliciousness by exposing the very bottoms of your cheeks. "For a man, seeing that part of the buttocks is a great turn-on," says Daniel G. Amen, MD, author of Sex on the Brain. "His mind wants to fill in the rest of the picture."

The final thing the boy short has going on that the thong doesn't? It doesn't give you a permanent wedgie — it's actually comfortable.
The story goes on to say how lasers give the NVPL and where the seams go and how they're made, but most guys I know? Their attention span gave out after the picture! So, if you need to know more, go ahead and click the link. I'll be looking for my attention span...

Editor's note: That may be the first and only time the word "bootyliciousness" ever appears on this blog.

  3. The previous comment contained the following:
    Not so at Theospark dot net, the thong and even less is still going strong every day!

    (meat axe approach was necessary in lieu of a scalpel)

    In answer to the question which dare not speak its name...with any luck he'll have an aneurysm! Heh.
