Welcome to a Valentine’s Amanda Zips It Up.
Happy V Day to all you lovers out there.
For me, February 14th is struggles to be more than a “hallmark holiday” retail money-spinner. But, stepping out of cynical mode, when I think of Valentines Day I dream of underwear. Sexy underwear for me that is. But what about sexy underwear for him?
According to a recent report by Madrid-based textile company Zeeman, there isn’t much call for it. The reason is because most guys show a complete lack of interest in their pants (although they’ve been known to show more interest in what’s inside them).
Following Zeeman’s client testimony, it appears that men struggle to get shot of their old underwear. 45% of men regularly wear worn (that’s filthy to me and you) undergarments, even continuing to wear them, if they have holes. In fact, 29% believe their old underwear is very comfortable and 17% are in fact very fond of their old Y-fronts. Skid marks included.
So, on Feb 14th, one option might be to stick to lingerie for women and treat ‘him’ to a pair of socks in his team’s colours.
This issue of Zips It Up gets more adventurous than that, delving into the best Valentine’s gift ideas.
Plus in this instalment, we can be relieved to learn that we’re not the only generation with pornographic minds, as ancient vibrators have been unearthed, which existed long before the Rampant Rabbit, Beyonce launches mismatched undies and cheap thrills which will shock you…
