  1. Pixelthreads: Video Games’ Undies Problem

    It's probably not what you think.

    Underwear in video games quite often confuses and baffles me, when they bother to acknowledge that women wear it at all. But this piece isn't about whether or not it's sexist to only show women characters in games in their underwear (because I hope the answer is obvious). This piece is about how a male dominated industry often doesn't understand how underwear works.

  3. SXSW Tech Panel Promises That “Wearable Tech” Underwear Is the New Hotness

    We've gotten a lot of junk mail promising the same thing, so we're kind of skeptical.

    Wearable tech products are cool and all, but they're not very sexy. Oh sure, they tried to make a porn with Google Glass, but c'mon. No one watched that. Of course, that hasn't stopped inventors on the SXSW panel "Tech Off Your Clothes: Naked Truths Of Wearables” from trying to fulfill all our smut-filled hopes and dreams with electronic underwear.

  4. Here Is A Bra That Only Unhooks If You’re In Love, Because Japan

    We definitely all wanted bras that could think for themselves, right ladies?

    If you've always wanted undergarments that respond directly to your heart rate and body secretions, Japan has got your back. For its tenth anniversary, lingerie company Ravijour has developed what they're calling the "True Love Tester," a bra that will only unhook if it senses that you're in "true love." Did I know we could "sense" that now?

    Things We Saw Today

    This is Hannah Bockenfeld at last month's Chicago TARDIS. Via an e-mail from her father Don: "She did all the work on her costume except for cutting the styrofoam and drilling holes in the PVC pipe. She even put the grommets in Cassandra's skin (ouch)." Now that is (wait for it) moist impressive. Lauren Rapciak has more pictures from the con.

  7. Artist Who Painted Vladimir Putin In Women’s Underwear Has To Flee Russia

    For a hyper-masculine ex-KGB operative, Putin sure is sensitive about this kind of thing.

    Artist Konstantin Altunin is seeking asylum in France today, after being forced to flee his native Russia following the removal of several of his paintings from a gallery by Russian police officers. Among those removed was a painting of Russian President Vladmir Putin in a negligee, doing the hair of former Prseident Dmitri Medvedyev.

  9. Electric Underwear Could Fight Bedsores By Shocking Your Butt

    While it may sound like a kind of joke ailment, bedsores are no laughing matter. The sores, which result from inactivity in hospital patients, can ulcerate and become infected, and the condition is thought to be responsible for tens of thousands of preventable deaths worldwide every year. So, no laughing at bedsores. What you can probably laugh at safely is the latest treatment for bedsores: Smart-E-Pants, a pair of electric underwear that prevents the sores from developing in the first place by delivering miniscule jolts of electricity to keep the muscles of your butt in motion.

  11. Investigators Find Secret Al Qaeda Files Hidden in Porno, on Memory Stick, in Suspect’s Underpants

    Last year, an Austrian man by the name of Maqsood Lodin was taken into custody in Germany. Lodin was on a watch list, and rightly so as investigators soon discovered that he was carrying secret documents on his person. After searching him, investigators found digital storage devices hidden in his underpants. Within those devices were pornographic videos, and within those were hundreds of pages of al Qaeda documents.

  13. Corsets: Not Anatomical Torture Machines After All

    Good News Everyone!

    It's been a joke amongst women for ages: the corset. That evil, constricting, painful thing we used to cinch our waists into nothing, all for the sake of attaining an impossible, ideal figure to attract (or keep) a husband. O, how it crushed our organs! O, those poor women who surgically removed their ribs to get into these things! O, why is there no male equivalent! O, we have to wear heels, too? Well, there is relief on the horizon for our sisters of centuries and decades past, for as it turns out, a lot of these beliefs about corsets being this horrifically terrible are somewhat exaggerated.

  14. Special Japanese Underwear is Designed to Help Burn Calories

    Japan is the world's premiere source of both off-the-wall ideas and weirdly catchy dance tunes. That being the case, it comes as no surprise that Japan is the source of an upbeat disco tune extoling the virtues of Calorie Shaper, a $32 pair of undergarments that claim to increase the calories burned by walking. Apparently, they achieve this effect by having a resin coating that makes them stiff, and the resulting resistance adds up; a 140 pound man walking 90 minutes a day can burn calories equivalent to about half a liter of beer every week. Of course, that assumes he has a week's worth of this rather expensive underwear, or poor hygiene. Either one, I guess.

    Crazy-awesome disco commercial that will totally get stuck in your head after the jump.

  16. Reality vs. Bodice Ripping: The Truth About Victorian Underwear

    Lies Damned Lies

    You know you've had fantasies about it before. You're a gorgeous lady in times before social networking -- back when social networking actually involved being social. A handsome gentleman caller approaches you warmly, caressing your neck. You invite him up to a lofty bedroom with velvet draping and scented oils (or something). He begins to kiss you gently, you return the kisses ... it's getting hotter, and you just can't stand the thought of your hands on anything but each other! You rip off his coat, he tears open your dress, revealing heaving bosoms, suffocating against the confines of a whale-bone corset! Take me, Dr. Egon Spengler! Take me now! Except all of this would be highly inaccurate. Because romance novelist Deeanne Gist has gotten to the bottom of all the lacy underthing mysteries and debunked bodice-ripping scenes like the one I just described at the annual convention for Romance Writers of America. But a girl can dream (if that's her thing).

  17. Stash It Where? NYPD Discovers Underwear With Secret Pockets

    New York police have discovered a real-life way of hiding drugs and small weapons where the sun doesn’t shine. The Wall Street Journal reports that a few officers literally debriefed a young man in Brooklyn last month after he told them that his underwear was made to conceal things. The news spread quickly throughout the entire police department, and now that the NYPD knows bad guys have another hiding place, a policy change could very well be in the works.

    Instead of the standard light pat-downs around suspects’ waistbands, the knowledge that this secret underwear exists is going to cause police to have to undertake more thorough searches of some suspects, said Capt. Vincent Patti.

    The police have singled out a specific brand of secret-pocket underwear called Stashitwear, though the company’s owner says he thinks he only has a few customers in New York City. And he also says his product isn’t marketed specifically to criminals, but its roomy pouch is pretty handy for stashing away things you wouldn’t want someone else to find.
