Well he may not be gay but how many straight guys actually base their underwear purchases off of advertising campaigns like this? Very little I'd say. For me, I just get whatever's on sale at Target or whatever the girlfriend picks out. I could seriously care less. The entire high fashion industry is aimed at gay men and women.

Women typically don't oggle such things, so who does that leave to stare at your bulge?

You don't know any women if you think that.

Or he knows women and is an idiot.


Yeah, that's also an option.

browntimmy: Those ads are targeted at women who buy clothes for their man, right? Because I don't fantasize about being the guy who waxes his chest and pubes and poses for photographs. You want to sell me underwear, give the ad a funny slogan and a cheap price.


You sound boring. And old.

Younger straight men are easier to advertise to, as an ad like Beckham's appear to their ideal of themselves, and also is attractive to their girlfriends, so they see him as what women want. It also has the bonus of attractive gay men who see both what they want and who they want to be.

This is nothing new; it started in earnest twenty years ago with the Marky Mark Calvin Klein campaign.

johnny queso: What is underwear?


It's a garment you wear to avoid catching yourself painfully in your zip.

I'm 28. My ideal self would probably be a 7 foot tall viking who just points to chicks and says, "You." And unless your underwear plays a tune or glows in the dark, it doesn't make you interesting.

browntimmy: I'm 28.


You still sound old. I'm 34, but I have the heart of a young child.

browntimmy: And unless your underwear plays a tune or glows in the dark, it doesn't make you interesting.


It isn't about making a person interesting. It's about making them sexier, or making them think they're sexier. I've worn cheap underwear and I've worn better quality underwear, and I can tell you from experience that the better stuff doesn't sag or bind up.

Not to say that it's worth paying the money for A/X underwear or the like, unless you have Beckham's bodyfat percentage yourself, as that's likely the only type of person on whom it both looks good and is comfortable.

Um yes we do, most women just can't admit it because many males are scared of a woman's sexuality and they denigrate any indication of that sexuality (hence all of the negative words about women's sexuality and the use of religion to sanctify and legitimize the subjugation of women).

I'm a straight woman and if I happen to be in the men's department to buy my Warrior something I always take a moment to peruse and admire the packaging of men's underwear. I know I'm not the only Farkette to do that!

Oop, I should have said "I'm know I'm not the only hetero Farkette to do that"

As a couple other ladies have mentioned, yes, we ogle bulges. I'll go a step further- we drool over them. What that Armani Beckam ad came out, it was hysteria on the Babycenter boards. And you know what, a lot of us buy our men's underwear, and will buy the stuff with the most delicious packaging. Just like with women's lingerie, where a guy will buy the little lady the sexiest thing without thinking of her comfort...
/Hey baby, I got you a nightie made out of extremely scratchy mesh! Now go put it on and frolick around!
//Hey baby, I got these tightie whities that are going to bind up and choke your balls! Now go put them on! DON'T YOU LOVE ME??
