Those boots are epic.

I want those boots! And being designed for men, they'll get round my calves which "suffer" from my using my legs to actually walk and are quite muscley.
tabaquitabaqui on December 14th, 2011 08:37 pm (UTC)
YES! Tall boots were/are the bane of my foot-wear life, as my calves are too big to fit most 'standard' boots.

#1) I want those boots.

The boots.
Nice and tall, but a little on the girly side.
Give me a nice pair of 20 hole gripfasts any day.
Too bad Blackhawk doesn't make a tall boot..

Well do I get to go to hell too for hoping this is a series like the Cannon towels?

Ad #1: Nunn Bush? Looks like he got Some Bu... uh, nevermind.

Ad #2: Why is the lady dressed up as Princess Leia from Star Wars?

Re: #2
There was a miscommunication when they were discussing what they wanted for fantasy night, which is why they both look sad. He wanted Princess Leia, but in the slave girl outfit, and she wanted someone she could stand to look at from the waist down.

Some of us appreciate the hirsute man.
~M~je_reviens on December 14th, 2011 09:17 pm (UTC)
I do too but.. this one is just nasty.
Bobbadgerpdx on December 15th, 2011 08:07 pm (UTC)
I like the fur... He just needs some muscles to go with.

~M~: TBs: white dressje_reviens on December 15th, 2011 10:18 pm (UTC)
See I think THIS IS HOT

But that guy looks like he's covered in pubes. noooooo....

Oh man. If only those boots had stripper heels. Whooot!

It's funny how the 'waxed smooth' look wasn't the popular look back then, eh? Hair was in!

She's wrapped up in a satin sheet, he gets the crocheted doily. Iiiinnnnnnnteresting. :)
Bob: pink rockbadgerpdx on December 15th, 2011 08:09 pm (UTC)
It's a crocheted coverlet~ VERY 1970's "Ladies of the Canyon"... I like his pose. Very "women's magazine get's back at Playboy/Hustler". I approve!
jewbonesjewbones on December 14th, 2011 11:28 pm (UTC)
I love all of these ads!
superfan1superfan1 on December 15th, 2011 01:03 am (UTC)
The last one is very sexy.
hutchloverhutchlover on December 15th, 2011 01:20 am (UTC)
Those boots? On a man?

Pure drag queen.
Ice Badger: Schneidbrowsmentalhygiene on December 15th, 2011 02:07 am (UTC)
Those are some serious boots. I'm judging this man does not fuck around.

That Viva ad is compelling, the man is fine, and stupid strategically placed lacy coverlet.
pikkewyntjiepikkewyntjie on December 15th, 2011 05:07 am (UTC)
Not sure I would agree with the first statement. I sort of think that's how he earns a living! ;)

For #2 Id like the blue pair, they would go well with my low rise jeans.

There's no way that's natural chest hair growth in ad #2, especially when you look at the forest on his legs. The man was obviously mowed and pruned for the photo shoot.

Ahh, Viva magazine--for those of you who weren't born before 1980, believe it or not America was a fairly progressive country then in comparison with now. Sex and drugs were common topics and not so taboo. If anyone had told me at the time that 40 years later we'd have moved back to the 1930s I never would have believed it. But then I never would have believed we would get mired in two additional Viet Nams as well, or that the right wing would come back with such a clear and unadulterated vengeance.

I remember finding a VIVA along-side the road to the football field at school. Pretty racy stuff for a Junior high school student.
the batconnielimejellybeans on December 15th, 2011 07:22 pm (UTC)
#1 - those boots....oooo...

#2 - I know pubic hair sticking out does it for me.

#3 - that's one sexy dude.
urbantravelsurbantravels on December 17th, 2011 12:10 am (UTC)
Re (2) I'm perfectly happy with body hair on a man, but when it looks like it's been sort of...drizzled on...in a weird pattern that resembles a diagram of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, with the man's nipples as the ovaries....yeah, then not so much.

They could have at *least* lit him in such a way that the hair wouldn't look like an accident at the black paint factory.
vic_vega66: tank_girlvic_vega66 on March 27th, 2013 01:27 pm (UTC)
1 - Sooooooo much subtext, sooooooo little time.

2 - Oh dear god!

3 - Yes please!
