Hi all-

Firstly, let me apologize for disappearing on you for months like that. As I may have explained back in November, my life recently got a major overhaul. I moved to a new city, started a new job (which wasn’t going to be full-time, but now is), and have been busily working at building myself a community and a life in this new place.

I haven’t forgotten about you, though. It’s just that the days keep blurring together…and while I’ve been whole-heartedly intending to post new stuff to this blog, somehow the months have slipped by.

I’m grateful, too, to the friends and regular readers who have been continuing to send me links and letters (yes! I got a fabulous letter IN THE MAIL from a reader!) full of ideas they think I’d be interested in sharing. When a friend wrote recently to say “I miss your blog”, I knew it was time to take action: I either had to give up on the site altogether, or I had to kick it up a notch and start posting again. This is me opting for the latter.

So – here goes. Consider me back. I won’t be posting every day, but I’ll do my best to post whenever I come upon something relevant and/or interesting.

Today, I’m going to start here:

This is a pair of women’s underwear by a company called ‘House of Holland’ — these are the “Full Bush Cheeky Short”. A quick glance through their lingerie collection reveals that the company’s tastes tend towards the slinky and sexy…so my guess is that this suggestion of full bush is meant to be a cute joke… an homage, perhaps, to the hair that is likely never allowed to rear its pesky little (curly) head(s).









Of course, for those women who just want to state it like it is, there’s always this option:

These are the “Bald Cheeky Shorts”. I’m inclined to think that the designer probably imagined these as being an updated version of the famous “days of the week” underwear — only perhaps in 2012,  the idea is that you can use your briefs to declare the state of your nether regions.











Fun? Offensive? As always, I’d love to know what you think.

And if you’ve got any ideas about stuff you want to see posted here, feel free to send ’em my way. I’m looking forward to being back in touch…

Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. It hasn’t been intentional – I’ve just arrived at the bit of this project where I’m supposed to start working on an actual hand-it-in-to-pass-or-fail-esque theoretical paper and it’s been sucking some of my energy.

I’ve been thinking, however, about pubic-hair printed clothing – and not in an abstract way. It turns out that a Finnish Label, Tärähtäneet Ämmät (or, apparently, “Crazy Slappers” in English) have designed underwear printed with pubic hair on the front of it.

Here’s an image (lifted from The Fashion, “the fashion blog for people who don’t follow fashion”):

Amusingly, the company also makes (terrifically named) leggings (“Hairy Leggings”)…

and  a chest hair-endowed undershirt for men:

I can’t quite decide what spirit these garments were first conceived in, but I like ‘em (especially the hairy leggings). I like the idea of acknowledging what used to be (and remembering what was) or what might still reign were it not for our crazy human urge to control our natural bodies.
