Crotches.

Image result for crotches

It’s funny how women went from huge sail like billowing underpants to almost nothing or at most a piece of string between their buttocks. We have a shop that sells nothing but bras and skimpy female underpants here in Bowral. There are two shop dummies wearing lace panties and bras facing the pavements. All men, even old ones, who pass the shop inevitably look down at the crotches of those dummy mannequins (diminutive of man) as if expecting to see heaven knows what.

Even dummies make male heads turn around. Is that all there is to you, men?
What’s wrong with them?

    HA! This made me laugh! Yes, things have changed drastically in the underpants department! 😮 😀

    Maybe the owners of the shop are hoping dummies will stare at their dummies and then come in to buy some unmentionables. ??? 😛 Just teasing! I don’t think the men who stare are dummies. I think they are just being men. 😉

    As I said in my comment to your comment in my Bloomer blogpost…to answer the question “What’s wrong with men?” might require a l-o-n-g answer for most women who would attempt to answer the question.

    I, on the other hand, have always adored and appreciated men. I’ve know, and have known, a lot of men and I like them just the way they are…they are good and bring a spice to life that I greatly enjoy! 🙂

    HUGS!!! 🙂

      Yes, Carolyn.
      Just this morning after enjoying some battered fillets of whiting with chips, salads with tartar sauce we walked past the dummies again.

      This time I was determined not to look at their crotches and I succeeded. All it took was a steely determination.

      It shows you that anything can be overcome.

      I still remember my mother’s huge underpants back in Holland. I even remember my mother scanning the paper’s Thursday specials at a large fashion store in The Hague. She sent me to buy her some underpants that were on special.

      I can tell you like men. It shows in your writing. I can tell!
      Hugs too.

    Here’s your answer, Gez.
    I will use a metaphor.
    Imagine a dog running down a street barking like mad and chasing a car. Does the dog know what to do if it catches the car ? No, it has no plan. But it confuses to chase cars regardless of whether it catches one or not.

    It’s the chase that matters, Gez. The chase.

    There is nothing wrong in this department, like looking. Men are hardwired to do this. Sorry, ladies this is how natural selection works. This urge to look is stronger than self preservation. You can observe this when men drive car. They rather look at a woman than observe the traffic or where they are going. Trying to gleam at the private parts of a dummy doesn’t seem so outrages as the looking male is at that moment not even sure it is a dummy.

      Yes, Peter, but I sometimes think it rather pathetic we seem to look at ground zero level when we look at a woman. And getting older it doesn’t even abate. Really pathetic. What does a woman think when an old codger’s beady eyes sink to that level?

      Is that what has driven me?

      From now on I am going to look at the eyes and even if it takes some kind of lower eye shield I will look up and try fathom what the woman is about. Ask her questions about what film or the latest book. It is far more rewarding.

      Talk about films; one of the best is ‘The Wife.’

      One of the all time best. Don’t miss it and he is looking into her eyes but still a scoundrel..

    Hoo boy, Gerard, you do write some provocative posts that makes one think. Well, as I see it, I have to agree with the other commenters. It is a man thing and ummm, I have read that many women do the same. But- women mainly look at a man’s butt and like to see a back end that has some shape. Some men have rears that look as if they have bee taking “no-ass-a-tall pills. As in Had-a-call. That was an old time tonic sold to folks and it was supposed to put pep in their step. 🙂

      It might be a man thing but there has to be more to being like that. I have never felt women ogling me lower down. In fact, some look up, sigh away, and yawn.

      My state of underwear is scandalous and I should get some new ones. Perhaps with father’s day I might get some new in case some pills enlarge my butt.

      On passenger ships many years ago I was told that the eggs had bromide infused to lower the libido of men. Those long journeys and the boredom of stretches of endless seas caused outbursts of unrestrained crotch staring.

      Strange that women don’t seem to be given credit for their (unrestrained libidinous outbursts).

        Yes, you are correct really. It is rude and oh so tacky. But I have seen men ogling women’s breast too which might be not as bad.

        By all means, hope you can afford under pants in the near future. Why wait for a possible gift?

        Oh, Yes, Ivonne. The breasts too get so much ogling, especially the hope of seeing nipples. There was a very funny sit-com of Seinfeld where the question of why men want to see breasts so desperately was dealt with.

    Reminds me of an underwear window display I saw in Europe a few years back. The mannequins’ wigs were askew, the underwear was sagging and the stockings were wrinkled.

    There has been a tragic loss of a sense of what is the boundary that both genders operate behind…there is always a crossing of that boundary when courting or flirting, but there are some times when it must be respected … The tease of flirting with the opposite gender is a thrilling and necessary art to be enjoyed…
    I wrote on this to a certain clique of an unappreciative audience on The AIMN..: https://freefall852.wordpress.com/2018/01/13/the-gender-contract/

      I read your article, freefall852 and found it to be so well put I could not add anything to it nor able to contradict your assertations about the moral aspects of relationships that so often flounder on the rocks of disrespect and moral decay.

      This little article on underwear and crotches is just a bit of nonsense, totally flippant.

      Last night there was a good interview between Germaine Greer and Leigh Sales. M/s Greer asserted that an occasional rape (usually carried out by a known person) is much less of a problem than wives putting up for years on end with non-consensual sex from brutish smelly oafish spouses rolling off their wives. She puts up for the sake of marriage, the children but in the process loses herself. Her esteem and dignity destroyed in the process. A compromise worse than an occasional single rape!

        Hello Gerard..I remember you from the old Drum “Unleashed” site ..also Hevityni…from Bob Ellis’s site and The AIMN…I respect highly her opinion…But yes, I do realise and respect your toying around with subjects you post on your site for your own amusement…but this particular subject..as we see today with Gerard Depardieu now also being accused of sexual misdemeanors it is getting too close and personal to many of us regular males..and yes, I did see that Greer interview….and there IS a section of our society that seemingly has an objective to divide and create suspicion and distrust…even a kind of hate between (particularly) the heterosexual genders. This “antisex” coterie was the reason I have dropped out of The AIMN posting…an article (“I am worried about you ladies”..here on my site) I recently put up there praising and promoting the peccadilloes of women as they go about their everyday public things was slammed and then pulled from the page for being “sexist and demeaning to women” …one has to wonder on where such foolish reasoning is heading..I do try and restrict my enthusiasm for blogging when visiting other’s sites..but I am a very prolific blogger and sometimes my enthusiasm gets the better of me…I am retired and living in an isolated regional community…in splendid isolation..I might add..but then I do have time to write as I please..

    I have to confess to having seen thousands of fannies, but they aren’t usually at their best. In spite of that, I still appreciate lacey undies, hers not mine.

    This reminded me of a young bloke who was doing his midwifery course was asked if he had ever done a vaginal examination. His response was,,’ Only socially. ‘

      I certainly don’t have your expertise in numbers, big M. Apart from pictures I can count on my fingers the number of fannies I have seen. There was one in 1955 before I migrated. And I lived off that for many years. It were lean times after our migration to a dried out suburb of Sydney where people seemed to spend entire lives behind the Venetian blinds listening to cricket, eating boiled mutton.

    I wonder if this is this is what is meant by the word crochety? It must have some similarity.

    If I may add to the flippancy…I recall my times in Darwin after that Cyclone (Tracy) swept the town away and all a friend of mine’s clothing, including all his underwear, away and he admitted to having to resort to wearing his wife’s underwear..and he, an alpha male with a capital “A” confessed to “Y’know…they were quite comfortable..I could see how a man could get used to wearing those sort of things…”

      Yes, why not? It is a free world and if a moment arrives where nothing else is available one would wear anything. Even wearing clothes out of choice, male or female. Who cares? Is it not amazing that in 2018 a choice is given to school girls to now finally be allowed to wear trousers or shorts? Some private schools even at primary level will still not allow girls to wear anything but skirts and kind of Jane Austin long frocks.

      You wrote about the ABC ‘Unleashed’ and later ‘The Drum’ whereby you remember Helvi and I.
      They were good times with the ABC having the funds to be far more adventurous and exploratory in the publishing of articles.
