The Softer (Porn) Side of Sears – Part 2

I don’t know if you remember the wailing and hand wringing last year when the online Sears catalog took down a woman modeling lingerie because she was showing the shadow of a nipple. You know, just in case impressionable teenagers somehow manage *not* to find any other source of online porn and are forced to surf the lingerie sites of department stores.

Well, here’s some double standard to serve up with your righteous ire:

ELEGANT MOMENTS ELEGANT MOMENT L9663 Men’s 4 piece adjustable harness. Set includes leather harness, arm bands and collar. – Clothing – Men’s – Underwear.

That’s right – a Conan the Barbarian-styled leather body harness… for men.

In case the pictures or links have been removed, here’s what you can get for just $55.99:

Hey, look  — price has been reduced from $69.99! Better hurry while you can still get them.


And thinking about body harnesses…

I found this on Tumblr, but for some reason, this reminds me of an underwear ad. Or maybe of the movie poster for Red Sonja.

    I love the fact it’s called ‘Elegant Moments’. There are many words for that leather harness, but I wouldn’t think elegant would be one of them.

    Incidentally, if you’re interested in the background to the second picture, I had some links to the photographers blog and the entry it came from when I used it a few months back:
    http://www.femdom-resource.com/2013/06/11/the-gift-that-keeps-on-giving/
    It was shot partly for a lingerie boutique so you’re thought on the underwear ad was pretty on the mark.

    I’m actually happier that this men’s body harness exists at Sears than if it had been a bdsm-flavored women’s outfit. It’s very rare to see men more objectified than women.

    • Unrepentant says:

      Oh wait, there’s way more slutty women’s stuff than men’s there. Nevermind.

      • Tom Allen says:

        LOL – I hadn’t checked the other parts of the website.

        But seriously, the idea that men wan wear “sex specific” outfits is kind of transgressive, isn’t it? I mean, generally, when you ask women about what kind of “sexxy wear” for men, it’s usually tight jeans and a tank top, or a nice suit and tie. I don’t ever remember hearing about women asking for body harnesses.
