If you wear boxer shorts, your sperm will pack more of a punch. That’s the gist of a new Harvard study published in the journal Human Reproduction Wednesday that found that men who wear loose-fitting undies have a higher sperm count and better swimmers than those in tighty-whiteys. The study probed the potency of 656… Living | New York Post
Without fail, every time my husband decides to get down on the floor with our three children, he gets smashed in the testicles.
Every single time.
See, our kids view daddy being down at their level as a signal for roughhousing, wrestling, tickling and climbing. All of those flailing limbs means it’s only a matter of time before an elbow or a foot comes into contact with dad’s “crotchal” region. Inevitably, my husband is left groaning in pain while grabbing his battered manhood.
Did I mention our 2-year-old also has a knack for punting daddy in the balls while sleeping in bed with us? Yep. And sometimes, our kids are only trying to show dad some love — yet a well-meaning hug somehow turns into sacking their father.
It’s gotten so bad, that I’ve not-so-jokingly suggested that my husband should wear an athletic cup 24/7. He is never impressed.
Fridababy — the same company that brought us the NoseFrida — is behind this genius kid-proof underwear. The practical garment features a reinforced protective pouch to help cushion potential blows, breathable fabric to “keep things fresh” and a “never-slip secure waistband.”
“The hits keep coming when you’re a Dad. Head butts, the baby carrier swinging heel + the good ole Sunday morning bed jump,” the item description reads on Fridababy’s website. “FridaBalls is the boxer brief designed to add branches to your family tree. Each pair of FridaBalls is equipped with a reinforced protective pouch to soften the blow and keep dad’s buddies safe, breathable wicking fabric to keep things fresh, a never slip secure waistband (because crack is always wack) and our patent pending Heirloom Conservation Technology (HCT). Preorder yours today!”
At $ 27.99 a pair FridaBalls come in two sizes: S/M and L/XL. Unfortunately, it looks like they’re currently out of stock for the time being. (Although you can join the waitlist to be emailed when the product becomes available.) Womp, womp.
I’m not sure if you’ll be able to get your hands on a pair before June 17. However, it’s difficult to argue that FridaBalls wouldn’t be the perfect Father’s Day gift.
It’s just too bad they don’t come in packs of seven.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The interior of Jupiter is just as intriguing as the planet’s dazzling surface, with a swirling mixture of liquid hydrogen and helium at its center, vast atmospheric jet streams and exotic gravitational properties, scientists said on Wednesday.
Speaking exclusively to the Sun Online as she modelled her LasulaXGeorgia collection, Georgia said: “Obviously we did meet at V fest and I heard he was talking about me when I was on Love Island, we’re just literally friends, but I do think he’s really fit.”
Underwear is just underwear, right? Not if they aren’t yours, and you’ve just found that intimate garment in your boyfriend’s bed. That’s exactly what happened to writer Karley Sciortino of Vogue.com’s Breathless column.
The convicted terrorist known as the “underwear bomber” – who tried to blow up a Detroit-bound jet on Christmas in 2009 – says his constitutional rights are being violated at a federal prison in Colorado, where he’s allegedly being forced to eat food forbidden by his Muslim faith. In a lawsuit filed last week in… News | New York Post
It’s easy to write off a revealing photo like this one as attention grabbing, but Grimes doesn’t see it that way, especially when the people sharing the photos represent diverse body types. “There’s something magical about a fat girl flaunting her curves unapologetically in clothes that others would say only belongs to a certain body type because it inspires others to do the same, just like an underwear selfie,” she wrote.
Grimes elaborated further to Refinery29, explaining that she believes “women post underwear selfies to celebrate their bodies and to inspire other women to try and be as brave.”
There is undoubtedly little representation of diverse body shapes in the media and even in our social media feeds, but it’s people like Grimes who can empower more people to share photos of their own. Grimes, who wrote she used to “scour Instagram for photos of women who had my body type showing it off” because it inspired her to follow suit, stressed the importance of more people doing so.
“If a single image can change people’s perceptions, then what do you think a photo of a fat girl in lingerie can do?” she wrote.
Preach. Anyone else feel empowered to snap a selfie right about now?
Torrid ― a clothing, accessory, swimwear, lingerie and shoe retailer for women sizes 10-30 ― introduced its newest ads Thursday, and the results are pretty epic.
The brand tapped both influencers and its customers to star in its #TheseCurves campaign, featuring women of many shapes and sizes on its site and inspiring women to share photos of themselves in their underwear.
Included in the mix is Anna O’Brien, or glitterandlazers as she’s known on social media, who explained in a release how excited she is to be “part of a campaign that celebrates the bodies many of us grew up being taught to hate.”
Also featured is blogger and Refinery29 writer Liz Black, who said on Instagram that while it took “years” to love her body, now she prefers to “celebrate it in style.” In a statement, she also applauded Torrid for its fashionable offerings. “My body deserves better than the blandness typically offered to plus size women,” she said.
Torrid also took to its own Instagram to share some images, including a shot featuring familiar faces Precious Lee and Georgina Burke.

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian may have only gotten engaged two weeks ago, but their coordinating couples style (or lack thereof) is already a classic. She’s usually in something tight or plunging, he’s always in sweats or a T-shirt. And on their latest rendezvous at a nightclub in Savannah, Georgia, their date night outfits did not disappoint.
Patriot Pics/Michael G/FameFlynet
Blac Chyna wore a skin-tight red dress featuring a halter neckline and slits all the way up the side of her bandage dress that showed one thing was noticeably absent — her underwear!
And to really accentuate the commando situation, she did what any Delta Nu would — the bend and snap.

The couple announced the big news with an Instagram pic of Blac Chyna holding a stack of dollar bills while wearing her new 7-carat engagement ring. It was designed by Rob’s childhood friend, Ben Baller, and features a giant round solitaire diamond on a diamond-studded band.
“She was more than excited, she was thrilled, just super happy,” Blac Chyna’s rep told PEOPLE about the engagement. It’s also reported that she plans on going by her birth name, Angela White: “She’s soon to be Angela Kardashian. She’s ecstatic,” says the rep.

In the shot, Alec Baldwin’s wife is seen posing in front of a mirror while wearing a lacy bra and a pair of black briefs. The brunette beauty also included the following heartfelt caption with her photo:
“Update on us… Rafael is doing wonderfully! He is two days old now. Such a sweet little boy. I’m feeling well, been up with him every hour to two hours. I have been planning on doing post belly photos but didn’t know if I was gonna have the guts to actually follow through. I hope you understand my intention here: I believe it is important to accept and love our form after going through a bit of a battle bringing life into this world. Deep breath, here we go…all the way from my glamorous hospital bathroom. #ShrinkingBaldwinBabyBump #NoShame #LoveYourBody”
The mother of two’s photo was met with plenty of support from her followers, who left comments calling her “brave” for “being honest about post-baby bodies,” and thanking her for sharing a positive message.
Often called the “Easter eggs of the underwear drawer” (no? It’s just us that calls them that?), pastel underwear offers up a bright addition to what otherwise may be a dull drawer in your bureau. And yes – we of course realize that pastel underwear is typically a spring trend, but with the bright looks from the following brands, you’re sure to wear these pairs well into summer.
The luminescent colors from Jor shine across our model’s gorgeous skin, and have beautiful white accents to highlight the pastel colors. Papi brings us a darker look from their new Summer Mirage Collection, which still pops like a firework. Jor delights in lime green, and Papi tries a purple ombre look for a dark-to-light effect.
On brands Mundo Unico and Sly, the pastel colors are combined, instead of contrasted against one another. Sly’s asymmetrical design is on-trend and funky, and Mundo Unico plays with yellow and blue pastels. The best part of these looks? The zigzag on the pouch, obviously.
