maybe it’s me, but…

From Haru wo Daite Ita (Embracing Love) by Youka Nitta.

… ever noticed in yaoi how the guys always wear high cut undies?

What’s up with that??

    It's so freaky…. I was just watching this anime! (I am in bed with flu…. thanks kids for giving it to me… next time a nice bunch of flowers would be nicer if you really have to give me something)
    I don't know whats up with the knickers…. DNA had a poll and every guy that answered said they prefered butt floss knickers…… yuk! It doesn't do much for me. Because most guys that wear g-strings don't have the arse for them. Trust me, only the guys advertsing them should be allowed to wear them… everyone else needs to get a license!

  2. too appreciate their long legs?

  3. All the better to fit their shapless figure…


  4. K. Z. Snow says:

    Uh…because yaoi's all about very young men, and bikini bottoms show off butt cheeks without that unpleasant cord up the crack? (“Butt floss” — good one, Natasha!)

    Beats me. I'm not real keen on seeing boys in their underwear.

  5. Anesthezea says:

    As long as they're not wearing tighty-whities, I'm okay with it! 🙂

  6. Ingrid says:

    Mmm, it's one of the few times you see undies in yaoi Kris.
    Most times they go from completely clothed to nothing in one frame.

    Aren't those guys in these pics “working”? When I go to work I tend to wear a bit more 😀

    Talking about anime. Did you know they have redone Ai no kusabi? It's showing this winter in Japan. They trailer is gorgeous.

  7. Tam says:

    Yeah, I think it makes their legs look longer. There's no underwear cut high enough to make my legs look long and lean. Sigh.

    KZ doesn't like boys in their undies? Nekkid only for you hon?

  8. Kris says:

    Poor, sick Tish, really?? This is one of my fave yaoi series. I love it.

    Was the poll about earing 'em or look at 'em?? Cos I srsly doubt that most guys are into butt floss.

    Katiebabs chook: You mean loooooooooooooong legs, don't you. LOL.

    EH: *snort* Probably not the best body shot in the world. The drawings get better as this particular series progresses, but, yes, the androgynous look reigns supreme in yaoi.

    KZ: These characters are actually in their 20s and early 30s if I recall correctly.

    I'm curious. How young is very young to you, KZ?

  9. Kris says:

    Anesthezea: Hun, have I got some piccies of tighty-whiteys for you! They'll make your eyes pop out. *g*

    Ingrid: “Mmm, it's one of the few times you see undies in yaoi Kris. Most times they go from completely clothed to nothing in one frame.”

    True. LOL. Yeah, you're right. These two are 'working' as avi actors.

    Ooooh. That trailer is awesome… and now I'm in the mood to watch anime. Poo.

    Tam: I can't even remember the last time I wore a high cut pair of knickers. Who does anymore?? It's like hipster boy legs, tummy holder inners and butt floss.

  10. Ingrid says:

    Have you seen all the junjou romantica yet Kris?

  11. K. Z. Snow says:

    “KZ doesn't like boys in their undies? Nekkid only for you hon?”

    Not that young, Tam. My dirty-cougar traits do have their limits. I like my nekkid menz between 25 and 45 and with some body hair and musculature.

    Regardless of what Kris says, I think these dudes just had their Coming Out (of puberty, that is) parties.

    Don't go near a guy who looks better in pantyhose than you do — that's my motto.

  12. Natasha says:

    Really. 🙂 I asked Matt if there was anywy to email them but they are toooooo big (over 250mb each). He said he'll think of something 🙂
    Yeah the poll was about wearing butt floss not looking. It's under blogs I think on their website 🙂 Some hunky men this week ;)… I like the rubber ducky bloke from Ohio (?) LOL! That is one BIG rubber duck LOLOLOLOL!

  13. Kris says:

    Ingrid, I've definitely read it all, but I think I was only about 1/2 through the tv series.

    KZ: Why wouldn't you believe me???

    “Don't go near a guy who looks better in pantyhose than you do — that's my motto.”

    *snort* Probably a good idea. Did you see that piccie of John Barrowman that Clare had up on her site. Dear God. What legs!

    Tish: *Yay hubby!* LOL! Naughty! And can anyone say budgie smugglers. *fans self*

  14. budgie smugglers?? I am so not going there.

  15. Kris says:

    It's an expression that will completely stump all but the Ozzies. 🙂

  16. Natasha says:

    The only two ways he can work out to get them to you is either
    1) put them on a disc and send by snail mail (they are on my laptop)
    2) put them into a torrent (?) and you can download them yourself.


  17. K. Z. Snow says:

    KZ: Why wouldn't you believe me??

    I assume that's a rhetorical question.

    Did you see that piccie of John Barrowman that Clare had up on her site. Dear God. What legs!

    I just rushed over there, pookie. I <3 John Barrowman! (Just saw that "captains kissing" episode of "Torchwood" again. *sigh*) His Scottish boyfriend ain't nothin' to sneeze at either.

    But look at the muscles! And the experience in his face! You don't see that on yaoi babies. (“-sigh)

  18. Kris says:

    Tish, it's via a torrent that most of us watched Junjou Romantica (I think).

    Tell your hubby though that he's gonna have to think of the stupidest person in the world and write destructions aimed at them cos I completely suck at this tech stuff. LOL.

  19. Natasha says:

    I love John Barrowman! His hubby is bloody gorgeous… their wedding piccies were so sweet.. with their two dogs aaawwww. JB wore a kilt… yum! His autobio. ws a riot…
    Oh and whoever post the message about the german soap with Roman and Deniz.. THANKS! I spent most of the last few days watching the whole bloody thing…. 798 episodes!!!!!! the sex scenes are getting a lot more raunchy woohooo! Love a couple of boys in the shower they have nice butts 😉

  20. Kris says:

    KZ: You are so mean to me. Just you wait until we do our interview. *MWAHAHAHAHAHA!*

    I thought you'd like that piccie, snookums. He looks damned fine.

    “You don't see that on yaoi babies. (“-sigh)”

    Are you telling me that I need to give you a lecture about the levels of smexiness and smut? You?!?

  21. Kris says:

    Tish the Shameless Perv. LOL.

  22. WAIT! Dr. Jack is married?!??!

  23. that would be captain. See, so emotional.

  24. Natasha says:

    Went to upload to the pirate bay DOT org and all episodes were already there… just go there and type in haru and see what happens.
    PS if you have a problem let me know and I'll send in Matt LOL!

  25. Kris says:

    Poor Katiebabs chook. Her dreams are dashed.

    Tish, it hates me. 😦

  26. Natasha says:

    try this

    if you can download it Matt will put up the second disc. Even he struggled with it LOL!

  27. Natasha says:

    or you could just try aarinfantasyDOTcom it's where I got some of mine. They did shut it down for copyright reasons a while but it's back up. I joined a long time ago so I don't know if they still have downloadables.

  28. Kris says:

    😦 x two cos Aarinfantasy doesn't host stuff anymore.

    Oh well. It was obviously not meant to be.

  29. Natasha says:

    Kris I've uploaded the second one and it should work. We are downloading from a second machine and couple of people from the US have got the link working. Did you use the link I gave you?


  30. Anesthezea says:

    Kris said:

    “Hun, have I got some piccies of tighty-whiteys for you! They'll make your eyes pop out. *g*”

    I think I must see these piccies you speak of. I believe they may be vital in my fight against tighty-whitey fear. 🙂

  31. Tam says:

    Speaking of John Barrowman (and really who isn't), have you seen him dancing to Beyonce's Single Ladies. Pretty cute. That “captains kissing” episode makes me cry.

    I'll just link to Craig's site since I'm too lazy to find the youtube address.

  32. Tam says:

    This is non-yaoi related but for all of us who mock the Twilight Franchise, Craig had a clip from Conan O'Brian's show today making fun of the new one. Have a look. Very funny.

    Ignore the comments, I'm sure we went off on a tangent although I did mention Kris somewhere in there. 😉

  33. Kris says:

    Tish, I did. How come it hates only me? *whines* I'm staring to get a complex now. Well, it can GOT TO HELL!! I don't want to play with it anyways! *pouts*

    Anesthezea: I'll do a special 'new treatment in the battle against tight-whitey phobia' post just for you… and the rest of the pervs here. 😉

    Tam: That clip from Conan O'Brien's show was absofrigginlutely hilarious. Loved it.

    Two things:
    (a) No wonder I couldn't sleep last night cos you were talking about me, and
    (b) I see that a certain chickie's acting skills haven't improved an iota. Blech. Definitely waiting for the DVD.

  34. Anonymous says:

    heres the link to no 2

    ps this site won't let me in unless I'm a nonie mouse

  35. Anonymous says:

    I'll burn them to disc and send them

  36. Kris says:

    Is my site being tricksy, Tish? Weird. I'll go fiddle with things and pretend I know what I'm doing.

    The link still didn't work. It definitely hates me. LOL.

  37. K. Z. Snow says:

    Oh, my bad. I forgot JB's boyfriend is now his husband. They're a gorgeous couple.

    That “captains kissing” episode makes me cry.

    Me too. I was watching it in the bedroom and had to pretend I was sneezing so Old Hardass wouldn't wonder what was going on.

  38. orannia says:

    See. I've never noticed that…

    LOL tish! And butt floss? *shudders*

  39. Kris says:

    You're such a sap, KZ.

    Orannia, maybe it's just that you're looking in the wrong place. 😉

  40. jitterbug says:

    Kris, I had to resort to urban dictionary to understand the meaning of “budgie smugglers”. o_O You Ozzies are soooo strange. 😉

  41. Kris says:

    *bows down to that font of all knowledge, the Urban Dictionary*

    And this is news to you, Sara, how???

  42. Natasha says:

    DO you want the OVA of sensitive pornograph on the disc as well? I need to find all my discs and see what else there is.

    Woohooo I'm not a nonnie mouse anymore… Thanks Kris.

    Did the links work for anyone else?

  43. Kris says:

    That would be awesome. Thanks Tish.

    Not sure about anyone else, but no doubt you'll be told. 🙂

  44. Ingrid says:

    The link worked for me.

  45. Natasha says:


    Matt burnt the disc… it has Haru, SP and Ai no ka..something on it. Okay:) I will send it next week… sure you don't want the pride high comics…. *danglescarrot*


  46. Kris says:

    Please give Matt big smooches from me, Tish. That's awesome. Oh, kisses to you too, of course. 😉

    “sure you don't want the pride high comics…. *danglescarrot*”

    No!!! Plus a certain Hawaiian Kitteh helped me get the PDF versions cos I was too impatient to wait for the hard copies. No willpower. That's me. LOL.
