Sound the Trumpets!

Hola Readers! This post marks a special occasion around here. What might that be, you ask? Well, it's only the fifth anniversary of the Badside, that's all! It actually rolled through about a week ago. Hard to believe it's been five years since this blog started, crazy huh?!! Anyway, you know me, life's all about the good times, yeah, celebration time! I've made some great friends here along the way and met some very sexy ladies too. The blog has had almost 220,000 hits since I started keeping track about halfway through 2007, so who knows maybe I've had a quarter of a million hits by now, not bad at all. I hope that this blog has had a positive affect on people who have come through and read it. Thanks to all you loyal readers, even if many of you never leave comments, I still appreciate you coming by here.

Last year, as many of you may remember, was a pretty tough year for me in many ways and the low amount of postings reflected that. There were a couple of months where I just couldn't find the mental energy to post anything at all, so it really means a lot to me that people were still coming by and checking to see if I had posted anything new. Those of you who did that, I'm throwing a big thank you your way!

Ri-ri is helping me celebrate by being super sexy in some grannies! I found these pics on the interwebs and was blown away by them. What does it mean? Will the granny make a cum back? Sadly probably not, but who knows, fashion seems to be cyclical so maybe they'll be back in the rotation someday. Maybe Ri-ri can change a few minds, what d'ya think? How's that for having your cake and eating it too?

Pretty and Pink

Hola Readers! How is your week going? How about a lingerie review to pick up your day? Pictured today is one from my latest VS haul. This skirted garter thong features the cutest little pink cursive writing all over it that reads "Sexy Little Things", the name of the collection it comes from.

The skirt is a silky smooth nylon material, the thong being made of a sheer stretch material. The build quality is about average for VS, which is to say, pretty well made. The garter clips are metal, something I always look for in a clip (after I've had plastic ones go brittle and crack on me in the past). The garter straps are also removable another nice feature if playtime doesn't include stockings and a great feature which makes the item much more versatile. Also I can testify that the straps do stay on well, so you needn't worry about your stocking suddenly sagging should a strap not carry out it's duty.

One of the details I love about this particular piece is the two tiered skirt. The top area being the fore mentioned Sexy Little Things material and the bottom edge made up of a bright pink ruffled apron of the same material. It's a nice contrast and really makes the whole piece pop. The waistband is ringed with a delicate eye lace matching the lace edging the thong, a small detail, but something that again makes this piece feel a little more special.

Other luxuries include the, count em, four bows. There are two medium sized black satin bows at the front bottom edge where the two tones meet above the front center of where your thighs would be. A nice accent that leads to your legs. In addition to this, and further adding to the accenting, is a small open cross stitch seam that your admirer can see your flesh through. So teasing isn't it, and a wonderfully thought out detail that adds sexiness to the piece.

Out back you can see there is a matching black bow at the top and the waist appears to wrap around like a tiny sexy apron, tapering and meeting at said bow and providing yet another alluring view for your audience. The thong is a color complimenting pink and will most likely not be the main feast for the eyes, as it's rather subtle in comparison to the rest of the eye candy. You decide if that's good or bad, I'll call it neutral in my book.

Lastly, just for you, they put a tiny pink bow at the inside back of the waistband kissing the black bow on the outside, So cute!

I should also tell you that this piece is not adjustable at the waist, so picking the correct size is essential for a proper fit. The garter straps of course are adjustable, but not the waistband since there is no clasp there. I recommend you use your panty size to choose the correct size for yourself.

I did get this piece on sale, so there's a good chance you may not find one in your size, if at all. Still, I feel this would make a wonderful addition to your lingerie collection and would be well worth the effort to hunt it down if need be. I can and do recommend it to you from my firsthand happy experience with it.

Something New, Something Old

Onkw√°ho Readers! Are you enjoying your long weekend? You probably noticed the graphic changes to the blog. Just thought I'd try to freshen things up and try something new. What do you think?

Not sure what it is, but my libido has really been on overdrive the last month or so. Maybe it's because I've been spending a lot of time checking out the Vintage Erotica Forums. The place is a cornucopia of erotic delights! Go over there and check it out if you get a chance. If you want to get the full benefits, you'll have to sign up for a free membership. As far as I know there seems to be no downside to this, although I must add that I did not sign up for the freebee things offered after I membered up, so I'm not sure if that is a good thing or not. There's plenty to see right there in the regular forums, at least for me anyway. Most topics are centered around the late 70's to the mid 90's, the so called Golden Age of Porn. You can find a ton of pics of your favorite stars of the past such as Ginger Lynn (pictured above), one of my all time favorite stars of the past and present.

Anyway, hope you like the new look here and be sure to let me know what you think. Drop by again soon, I've been busy trying to get some decent pics of my new lingerie for you, so there should be some interesting things to see here in the near future.

Magazine Covers

Aloha Readers! How are you doing? I was cruising the inter-nets and found some very cool and sexy old magazine covers that I thought the readers here might enjoy seeing. Of course the GQ one is a much newer one featuring Sienna Miller, but I thought it matched the theme of sexy ladies in classic poses.

I find it so interesting that porn has slowly gotten more hard core over the years. I doubt the GQ cover would have been on that magazine twenty five years ago. I suppose people have slowly been loosening up over the years, a good thing in many ways. I do however find something comforting and pleasing about the old soft core porn, it has a certain class and elegance that seems to be lacking in the new stuff. Maybe it's just the nostalgia of it all, I don't know. Not that I don't like new porn, I do, just that there is a difference between the periods or eras of this genre.

As far as I know Escapade Magazine is long gone. I never even knew of it myself, but apparently it was a competitor with Playboy way back when and featured some high profile writers like Jack Kerouac. Too bad it's gone. I hear Heff has reacquired Playboy and is trying to turn the struggling company around. I hope he can do it as it'd be a great loss if PB ever went away, how terrible that would be.

Also of note, Mamie Van Doren, the second from the top cover girl is turning 80 this year. Hard to imagine that when seeing the adorably cute blonde on the cover of that magazine. I think it's great that she posed for these magazines back then and that those old pictures have documented her beauty for all time.

Shopping Trip

As you already know, it's sales season in most of the lingerie shops right now. The VS semi annual sale being the big gorilla of sales. My friend needed a ride downtown the other day and it gave me the perfect excuse to go shopping afterward. I hit up both VS stores and let me tell you, they were complete mad houses! Throngs of thong seekers grabbing silky underthings and shoving each other looking for some panties or bras. Mothers with daughters, sisters, girlfriends and one lone guy, me! Actually I saw a few other guys there too, but they were all with wives or GFs.

I took a quick look and decided to hit Frederick's instead. What a difference, the store was almost empty, just a few women in there. The sales girl was very nice, telling me all about their specials and asking if I needed help finding anything.

Did she know? Of course she had her suspicions, why else would a guy be browsing the racks of lingerie so methodically, slowly examining each piece. I took my time, wandering through the store doing a thorough examination of all the lingerie. While I was browsing, a second girl came out of a door in the back of the store giggling and waved the sales girl to join her in back leaving me alone in the store. In fact they left me there so long I had to wait by the register a few minutes for her return.

When she returned to the register, the pretty sales girl gave me a smile. I asked if everything was returnable as I'd selected things from the sales racks. She said, "Oh sure, just make sure she doesn't remove the tags". Then she did something unexpected, she looked at me, kind of a quick once over, and said "Or just make sure YOU don't remove the tags".

What did it mean? I think she was confirming her suspicions that I was a perverted panty freak, a lingerie junkie who was headed home soon to traipse about in lingerie like a horny minx. Oh how right she was. I wondered what she thought of it all. It didn't really seem like a judgment, the way she'd said it. More matter of fact. I'd go so far as to guess she gets a fair amount of lingerie pervs like me in the store. I don't even recall my reaction when she said that to me, I think I just looked at her, smiled and said OK.

It was funny hearing her conversation earlier with a female customer. The customer was saying something about how it must be fun working there and then joked about how she must never see any guys in the store unless they're there with a GF or something. I found that to be quite funny myself as I stood there alone with panties in my hand.

In the end, I wound up buying a few items I'd found on the sales racks. They were already marked down and then marked down another 75 percent off. I ended up leaving with a camisole, teddy, mini skirt and panties for under $20, what a deal! The cami I bought is similar to the one pictured above, I'll be posting pics the actual item and my other finds soon.

Oops, I did it again!

Gowwa Readers! Oh boy, I did it again and started browsing lingerie and found a few items I just had to have. This time the feeding frenzy happened at Fresh Pair where I picked up some new panties and a Felina ruffle skirt (pictured above). It seems I just can't escape the bite of this lingerie fetish bug. Actually truth be told I've been super horny as usual and this always influences me in very naughty ways. Luckily for me my fetish is just lingerie and not something worse (or even more expensive).

On a high note, Fresh Pair is now offering free two to three day shipping when you purchase $30 or more, which I did. A great deal in my book. They also offer free shipping on ALL orders, but it's the slow kind. Being miserly, I usually end up waiting for my lingerie to crawl it's way through the shipping system, so getting this expedited shipping is pretty exciting stuff to me. Hopefully, I'll be frolicking in my frillies in no time!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Off To A Fine Start

U du tah ma Readers! Are you enjoying this fresh new year? Have you made any resolutions? I'm not much of a resolution maker, I figure any day is a good one to start on a new road. One thing I did end up doing was getting some new lingerie. What a way to kick off the new year eh?

It all started by chance when I got an e-mail from VS informing me of their semi annual sale. Of course I always have to look, even if I have no intention of buying. Unfortunately for my bank account, I ended up finding a few items that I thought I couldn't live without. Try as I might, I just can't seem to resist buying myself sexy lingerie, especially when it's on sale! I'll be posting pics of those in the near future after I've done a thorough review for you. Above is a sample of what is to cum.

Looking forward to sharing a great year with you all!
