Knickers, panties, britches, drawers, underwear, intimates, lingerie, undies, unmentionables. If there’s one thing I like, it’s new underwear. Nothing beats the feeling of sliding on a brand spanking new pair.
However, in some parts of the world the small things that we take for granted, such as underwear, are considered luxuries. Some women are not able to afford intimates, or they may be only able to afford second-hand/used undergarments. Just ... Read More

Though Jez didn't explain the choice in photography, it is clear when one thinks of a misogynistic office environment, one thinks of our favorite ad agency, Sterling Cooper.

If that wasn't enough for you, each ... Read More
