Bras For Men | Have You Earned A Black Bra?

To wear a black bra, you must be daring. To wear a black bra, you must be bold. In wearing a black bra, you come to understand that although lingerie lies next to your skin, safely tucked away under your outer clothing, it is nevertheless a very real presence. The man who wears a black bra is a man who has mastered the arts of lingerie, he is one with the essential nature of lingerie.

Pretty Party Dresses For Men

But what better event than a party to to wear a party dress? Parties are about fun, enjoyment and relaxation. Ideally, they are also about quirky tales people will remember for a life time.

Amanda Simpson And The Sordid Truth About Transgendered People

This is an article that has gone up on the new site I write at, Soda Head, it’s pretty relevant to many readers here, so I’ve crossposted it. I’d appreciate it a great deal if you like the article, make a log on and give it an upvote. In the crazy world of Internet writing, that sort of thing makes a difference :)

A popular poll featured recently on Soda Head asked: was a transgendered woman appointed to please gay activists?

Whilst being something of an interesting and perhaps even valid question, it belied a deep lack of understanding of the nature of transgendered people. Transgendered people aren’t gay. They’re not (necessarily) men who are attracted to other men, or women who are attracted to other women. Transgendered people are people who were born with one set of sexual organs and a body that they deeply feel do not match how they feel on the inside.

Guy Glitter | Cosmetics For Men

Here’s a fashion trend that comes around periodically, bringing with it squeals of approval and howls of derision alternately, glitter. Not the glitter that you stick on arts and crafts materials, but the glitter you stick on your face. Most often, glitter is employed in eyeshadows and lip glosses, for that ‘sparkle sparkle princess’ sort of look.

Five Beauty Products For Men

Though the beauty market is changing, it is still seen as slightly effeminate if a man uses beauty products, unless he’s George Clooney, in which case all that mascara is fine. (George Clooney is so wearing mascara in many of his pictures, he has lashes that supermodels would cave his face up for.) Here are five beauty maintenance products men can, and should use if they are interested in looking their best. (Whatever that means. Rolling around in the dirt and then scrubbing one’s face down with soap and hot ashes is also okay if you can’t be bothered with any of the products below.)

How Men Can Wear Women’s Clothing, But Still Look Masculine

This is a question from a reader, it’s taken me three months to answer, mostly because I’m not very good at reading the little hidden questiony bits they have here. It’s a very good question however, and it is most worthy of an answer.

The Question: You have some interesting pages such as power-skirts for men. Now I don’t want to pretend to be a women, or pretend to be Scottish. How does someone pull off, for example a skirt, in the context of an otherwise complete manly outfit, especially with respect to shoes/boots, career wear, hose, body-hair, and I suppose underwear, just in case of strong wind?

Here’s my answer…

Wearing Plastic Dresses For Fun and Profit

You know what’s an excellent material? Plastic. Plastic gets a hard rap because there’s so much of it clogging up landfills and biodegrading slowly, but as scientist friends tell me, that’s not necessarily an awful thing because plastic is potentially quite an effective carbon sink. That’s not a sink made of carbon, that’s a material that absorbs more carbon than it releases. Scientists are working on ways to use C02 emitted in industrial processes as a raw material for plastics. But all of that is technical and dry and doesn’t help get you into some shiny plastic clothes, or does it?

1920’s Flapper Dresses | Find The Rebellious Flapper Within

I don’t know about you, but I like the idea of the 1920’s. It’s been portrayed as a glamorous time filled with tassels and outrageous frills and willowy women named ‘Bea’ who ran fashion houses and had scandalous affairs with the dashing men who would come by. Women emerged briefly from their place in the kitchen to dance the night away in sordid Jazz houses, bare arms and legs scandalously flashing in wanton displays of frenetic dance.

I Failed At Quitting – Here’s An Article About Men, Hats and Skirts

Quitting fail. Oh well. Here’s an article all about cowboy hats and skirts for men.

I think I said I wasn’t going to do this anymore, but you know, old habits die hard. And I can do what I want, it’s the Internet! I make the rules! Mwa haha ha ha! (I think I made it at least a week without one of these articles.) Anyways, I was recently looking at men wearing cowboy hats and pondering just how very flattering cowboy hats are on guys and girls. There’s just something about covering the forehead and having stiff fabric brimming out at right angles about the head that really compliments the average human face.

Why I Don’t Wear Girly Things

One of my readers recently wrote an awesome article about what he called ‘deny-vestites’, (if you want to read it, you can do so here) women who don’t wear feminine clothing, who instead prefer simple clothing of a more androgynous kind and who don’t bother too much about make up. He was surprised when I replied back and said that I thought his article was brilliant and that I myself could probably identify as a ‘deny-vestite.’ His response was one of surprise. How could I write about women’s clothing and lingerie so much if I didn’t wear a great deal of uber feminine things?
