Lingerie models, coy and decoy…


Blog Guy, I know you’ve done security consulting for some major companies. Are you working with anybody now, or is that confidential?

I’ve recently been working with the Victoria’s Secret folks. Their supermodels are often the targets of stalkers, creeps and pervs. You know, basically the guys I call my readers.

Well, she’s got MY vote!

Okay guys, this is a REALLY tough presidential campaign for us. We need some very successful rallies, so let’s brainstorm this.

Overdressed on Underwear Day?


Blog Guy, I understand yesterday was some kind of national holiday in Brazil. You usually keep us up on stuff like that.

Sorry. Yes, it was Brazil Underwear Day, so they all went around in bras and panties and lingerie.

Tops for December: blog enters the steam age?


Sorry, this one is a bit anticlimactic since I’ve already posted several lists on the top blog posts for 2009, but for legal reasons involving off-shore gambling accounts and so on, I still need to identify this blog’s most popular posts for December.

Blog Guy, I have a complaint. Back in the old days you used to run photos of Victoria’s Secret models to make the point that they were getting too much news coverage.

I see England, I see France, I see special underpants…



I tend to have to take a lot of crap from female readers who say that I use too many photos of attractive women and not enough of men.

So this one is for you complainers.  Shots of  trim, fit, muscular, buff young male models, displaying underwear for surprised pedestrians from glass window boxes in Madrid.

Bleu video: a sexy homage to fromage?


Bob, it’s me. Your boss. Remember we discussed increasing traffic to your blog? Huh?

Sure, Boss. I’m supposed to blog on Saturdays and Sundays too, 365 days a year, and never take a day off because “days off are for losers,” right?

I see Belgium, I see France, I see lots of underpants


Wouldn’t you love to see underwear from the very most famous person in Belgium?

Well no, I don’t actually know who that is. I was hoping you would.

Anyway, an artist in Brussels has just opened the Musee du Slip, featuring framed underwear donated by mostly Belgian artists, singers and politicians.

Just leave your parrot outside, sir…
