The Sexually Arousing Nature of Erotic Literature

Woman Reading Photo

Since I used to be a good reader in my youth, I easily became interested in the erotic books that we have in our stores. At first sight some erotic books seem a bit old and uninteresting to me but after taking the time to open some up to read, I can tell you that I was wrong. It reminded me of how much I loved to read a good book from time to time a few years earlier when I was a teenager and how much they inspired my imagination. Of course, I was not really interested in these erotic books as a teenager as I was sexually inactive and didn’t even want to be aroused. Now that I am older, I can see how erotic literature provides a positive impact on peoples lives.

Erotic literature contains a story or multiple stories that include the intimate thoughts of one or more characters sexual lifestyle and relationships. It also describes sexual acts in great detail which otherwise may not have been captured through other forms of media like adult movies, erotic television shows and hentai. For example, in a sex scene of an adult movie you may see two people engaging in sex from different angles whilst in a book, the author is able to capture precisely how each touch is made, describe how the touch had made the character feel and delve into character development.

The reader then is able to imagine what is happening in their own mind and if they choose to, they can adapt the situation or character according to their personal desires making the scenes become more personal. Erotic books aim to awaken the reader’s emotions, imagination and sexual arousal levels.

It’s also interesting that these books usually include satire and social criticism which allows the reader to understand and see taboo topics from a different perspective. I’d say people who read these books become less judgmental and are more aware of how diverse members of society’s sexual lifestyles can be.

Erotic literature is available in fiction or non-fiction which may or may not be expressed in explicit language. It can be found in the forms of novels, short stories, poetry and sex manuals. They are written with different themes including prostitution, orgies, homosexuality, sadomasochism, fetishes, topics considered taboo and much more.  Some books offer lighter reading whilst others can be hard core, there really is something available for all different tastes.

Erotic literature has many benefits including:

  • Arousal: There are book lovers who have a real passion for reading and appreciate that a book can stimulate sexual arousal both mentally and physically. For some people imagination is an engine needed for the sexual arousal, reading could be used as a sexual aid.
  • Imagination: Reading can ignite your imagination and take you to places you have never been. The scenes within the book are all imagined in your head. If you would like to you can imagine yourself in the story instead of the characters which can be really exciting! Inversely, you can make your partner become another person.
  • Inspiration: It inspires us through discovering information about topics that we do not know which helps us to understand them, thanks to the good words chosen by the narrator.
  • Role Play: After reading the book, you are able to role play scenarios with your partner.
  • Romance: If you find yourself needing a little excitement in your monotonous relationship, reading erotic literature out loud can definitely be a way to excite the two of you. It can help you feel what the couple in the book feels.
  • Sex Advice: It can also give you useful sex advice to spice up your relationship.
  • Old school: If you are not the kind of person to try adult lifestyle products like sex toys you can read a book.

Nowadays, there are so many books and genres that have an influence on our society. Some were originally perceived as taboo had eventually become acceptable within society. Some have reached worldwide success and have become movies or TV shows like Fifty Shades of Grey and The Intimate Adventure of a London Call Girl.

Erotic literature has a sexual arousing nature which can positively impact your lifestyle and relationships. Be sure to visit Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres to have a look at our large range of books on display.

A True Polyamorist Does Not Cheat!

Man Being Kissed by Four Women

For those who do not know what polyamory is, it is the practice and desire of intimate relationships with more than one person. It comes from the Greek word poly which means “many” and the Latin word amor which means “love”. It literally translates to “many love”. It is an unconventional form of love because the monogamous-centered society dictates that love should be monogamous and your heart should only be reserved to that one special person.

This conventional notion of monogamous love is so prevalent that companies and even media capitalizes on it through dating websites, mobile applications, dating shows and romance novels. Which is why, for most people, polyamory is viewed as taboo and sexual promiscuous. They even equate it to infidelity and cheating.

Honesty and Commitment are Cornerstones of Polyamory

In conservative societies, except for Islamic societies, polyamory is frowned upon. But one important characteristic of polyamory that people tend to not understand is commitment and honesty. Polyamorists have consensual non-monogamous relationships and that is the basic characteristic of polyamory. This is opposed to cheating wherein a committed person steps out of the relationship boundaries without the permission of the other person which is characterized by dishonesty, cheating, infidelity and disloyalty. In this light, a polyamorist can never be called a cheater. Polyamory is about having multiple committed relationships with the consent of everyone involved.

Another common misconception when it comes to the idea of polyamory is that it is the same as open relationships. Open relationships, by definition, are committed couples who have casual partners on the side. In this scenario of open relationships, the two couples remain loyal and committed to each other, though a “side fling” is consensual. The other committed partner agrees that the other partner can engage in nothing more then having sexual relationships with other people. Although open relationships are also classified as consensual non-monogamy, open marriages and open relationships are not classified as polyamorous relationships. This is because a polyamorist’s commitment is to all partners, although there may be cases where the degree of commitment is not equal. In the case of polyamorous relationships, psychologists have found out that polyamorous relationships are centered on trust and communication.

Polyamory is also misconstrued as “swinging” which is a more common term. While polyamory involves sexual activity in the group, it emphasizes no emotional or romantic connection as opposed to swinging which involves open and consensual activity among people of a group. Truth be told, there is a cultural rift among polyamorists and the swinger communities because of these major differences. Although swinging is a form of consensual non-monogamy, it does not usually involve commitment and it emphasizes only on physical contact. However, there are cases where the two concepts may intertwine when a swinger falls in love with different partners and decides to start a polyamorist relationship.

Polyamory Is About Loyalty

When a polyamorist decides to ‘swing’ with secret partners, by definition they are not a polyamorist anymore. Secret relationships not known to their polyamorist partners are seen as a violation of their relationship agreement. It is seen as being disloyal and engaging in infidelity which is frowned upon in the polyamory community. Fidelity is seen as not only being limited to romantic and sexual exclusivity but faithfulness to agreements and communication that partners make. Polyamory is about the values that the individuals hold and the respect that they have for each other. Commitment is honesty and loyalty to one’s own words.

In a scientific research, studies have found out that people have strong stigma against polyamorist’s. Society sees monogamous relationships as having stronger commitments and more stability. In a monogamous-driven world, this is not surprising. But in all honesty, polyamorist’s also help each other. Since there is emotional investment, polygamists want what is best for their partners. They can help pay the bill, fix the house, do domestic activities and help out at work, in the same way that monogamous couples function.

The social stigma stems out from prejudice and ignorance in the understanding of why and how polyamorists love. As a matter of fact, non-monogamous participants in this very same experiment ranked their monogamous partners higher than themselves when it came to the definition of being committed. This makes polyamorist’s a sexual minority, the same way that there are still discriminations against the LGBT community and in other countries, the struggle for women’s equal rights.

Social stigma affects family members and children of polyamorists. A different study was conducted to analyze the effects of polyamory to children and it shows that other people think that these children are troubled and can be negatively affected by the negative behaviour of their parents. But in all honestly, research also points out that children in polyamorist families are happier because children generally love to be around as many adults as they can. Children are happy if they know that more people love them.

Polyamory Is About Openness and Acceptance

When people are seriously in love, they tend to want to control how their partners should think and what their partners should do. In a polyamorous relationship, you should not control your partners on who they should love or have relationships with. It is typical for most human beings to feel the need to control and be jealous, this is part of the human evolutionary code. It is normal for people to think they are not enough or if they have done something wrong for their partners to look for other relationships. The same as with monogamous relationships, this thought process also occurs and it is perfectly normal, to begin with. However, with constant communication, this feeling of inadequacy will be quelled and properly dealt with. It is also important, especially in polyamorous relationships to keep an open mind and be open to suggestions. This starts by developing respect for your partners to make them feel that their emotions and opinions matter to you as well.

Polyamorist’s are open to negotiating boundaries and agreements where they consult with their partners. For example, if they have new relationship prospects they work together to develop a decision.

There has been much debate to classify polyamory as a sexual orientation and identity though most would say that it is a form of practice within a relationship. Because of its complexity and emotional subjectivity, polygamous relationships gender identity rules are not an issue. For example, a monogamous couple may decide to engage in heterosexual polyamorous relationships. They then can decide to engage in consensual homosexual relationships. The members of these groups accept and love each other regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

Polyamorist’s have Compersion

A relatively new concept compersion is widespread among polyamorists. When a person has compersion, it means that they are empathetic, joyful and happy to know that their partner is happy within their other polygamous relationship’s sexual and romantic activities.

It is the same feeling when your own child gets awards in school or when your best friend finally gets married. It is taking joy in the joy of others. The exact opposite feeling of jealousy which is what monogamous couples become when they are cheated on. When people cheat on, they feel anger, fear, betrayal, sadness, and some even go through depression. Polyamorist’s do not feel these emotions when their partners find and enjoy other relationships.

Polyamorous Relationships Are Healthy

In the United States alone, 5% of the total population is open to the idea of polyamory and about 500,000 engage in polyamorous relationships. With the growing popularity, scientific and sociological studies are being conducted to assess polyamorous behavior. These studies found polyamorous relationships to be healthy. They found that communication is key to happy and successful relationships. Another study shows that polyamorists are usually people with high degrees of openness, confidence, intelligence, self-worth, education and are focused on experiences in life.

When it comes to sex, research shows that polyamorist’s are less likely to contract sexually-transmitted diseases (STD) than their monogamous counterparts. This is because polyamorist’s communicate with their partners it is alright to have sex with other people sa long as they practice safe sex and stay loyal to their other agreements. The study also states that when people cheat they are most likely to be drunk or under the influence of drugs which is their justification for not wearing protection.

The Four Types of Polyamory

Believe it or not, there are four types of polyamory. There is no ideal type of polyamory, the one chosen depends on the group’s agreements.

Polygamy

Polygamy is the most familiar term which involves marrying many people and having many legal spouses. In some societies, mostly in Islamic societies, this is accepted because it is a part of their culture. Some modern Islamic societies have passed laws that requires having hierarchical polygamy, meaning there is a first wife, a second wife, a third wife and so on.

Even if it is legal for some countries to allow citizens to engage in three or more partners sharing sexual relationships, there are no countries that give polyamorous relationships any legal protection or the right to marry. The countries which permits polygamous marriages, only ones between a man and a women are allowed.

Mono/Poly Relationships

In Mono/Poly Relationships one partner may have a monogamous relationship while the other partner may be allowed to have polygamous relationships. This depends upon the agreement between the couples as to how they should proceed with their relationship.

Polyfidelity

Polyfidelity involves polyamorist’s who have romantic relationships where sexual contact is restricted and limited to certain people in the group. The members of the group are considered as equal partners.

Geometric Configurations

Geometric configurations are described by the interconnectedness and the number of people involved in a polyamorous relationship. For example a V (vee) relationship involves three people while an N relationship involves four people. Some additional examples are quads and triads.

In Conclusion

To those who think that polyamorists are cheaters, that statement is incorrect. Polyamorists are honest and communicate with their partners, as cheaters are just plain liars. Polyamory is more than being a form of relationship or an identity, but an advocacy. The conservative stigma still exists, there is the still the struggle for legal recognition and protection of polyamorist’s. It is an important struggle that needs to be won for people who want nothing but love. No one has the monopoly of love nor does anyone have the right to dictate who or how a person should love. Love is an irrational human behavior and is subjective to a person’s preferences and personal identity. To love and to be loved in return are basic human needs as people need affection.

So if you know someone who has a polyamorous relationships, do not judge them. Try to understand how they think and what they feel, then maybe you will relate with them. Polyamorists are not perfect. These people also face the same problems as monogamous people. They also fight just like any human being, they also have the capacity to fall out of love. But what is important in relationships is that there should be communication, honesty and respect for your partner’s decisions and opinions. This after all, is what relationships are about.

The Spirits of Mount Hehuan, Taiwan

Mount-Hehuan, Taiwan Photo

Nothing had prepared me for the erotic experience at Mount Hehuan. Being a nature lover, I had traveled to Taiwan from England. As I traveled through Qing Jing Highlands, my next visit was the famed Taroko National Park. From there onwards I had decided to make the descent to the coastal lowlands of Hualien, and finally to the capital city of Taipei. It was a straight, well organized tour trip like many others I had taken through my life. I was traveling through Hehuanshan Road, when I first heard about the mysterious Hehuan spirit from one of the locals.

My local driver spoke in an ominous tone, “That spirit is the devil herself, she lures men to her lair and no one sees them again. Stay away from the peak on wintry nights at all cost”. However, I did not believe in any superstitious nonsense. I considered myself an educated individual and believed that all folk tales were just bed time stories, nothing more. As we approached Mount Hehuan, dusk had settled and the sun was about to set in the sky. I immediately made up my mind to capture the sunset from the summit of 3416 meter high peaks. My driver warned me to come back within an hour else he would leave me behind. I could see that he was scared of the spirit. He kept making warding gestures with his hands while he touched an ancient pendant around his neck.

“What a simpleton”, I thought to myself, amused, as I promised my guide that I would be back within an hour. Thus, I started on the mountain trail, and towards my unforgettable sexual encounter. The hike up to the summit was uneventful, though I kept shivering due to freezing temperature, which was probably around -10 C. Upon reaching the summit, I feasted my eyes upon the beautiful sight as the sun settled, while the light slowly gave way to dark. Suddenly, my ears were assaulted by an eerie, alien voice. It was melodious and irregular, comforting and disturbing, all at the same time. One thing was clear, though, the voice was calling out to me. I felt sudden ecstasy and my body started shivering more violently. Without thought, I started going down the trail from Hehuanshan summit. I was following the voice and it reached out to me like a lover’s call.

My mind screamed that I should turn away, that I would be stuck here entire night; but my body would not listen. The trail took me downwards, newly fallen snow crunching under my feet. I squinted my eyes, and saw that I had reached the mouth of a cave. It was perfectly hidden behind fallen rocks. Without the voice to guide me, I would never have found it. It was dark and very cold, the sexual melody whispered my name and taking a deep breath I entered into the cave. There was a light at the far end of the otherwise dark cave; I followed the light and entered into an actual room.

At the center of the room, there was a huge king-sized bed draped with red silken sheets. The walls were marble that glowed with a green light casting colorful shadow upon the carpeted floor. A beautiful, young woman was perched on the bed and it was her voice that I heard the entire time. She smiled as I gazed at her; dressed in a thin silk gown I could notice the shape of her body. She had perfect hips and round breasts waiting to burst open from her clothes. Her golden hairs cascaded around her and her moist, red lips looked as if they had sucked on strawberries. It almost felt like she glowed, and at that moment I knew she was the Spirit of Hehuanshan.

The spirit licked her moist lips as she beckoned me towards the bed with one hand. I started walking towards the bed and as soon as I reached her, she immediately pulled me towards her making me fall on the bed. I laid on the bed, with my head resting on the pillow. She giggled, as she sat in front of me on her knees. Giving me a sexual wink, she untied the ribbon holding her gown and it went open in the front. I could gaze at her cleavage and half exposed breasts as she slowly cupped them in her hands. Before I knew it, she took off her gown throwing it on the floor. She was nude underneath and I could see her body in great, sharp detail. Her nipples were hard and pointed as she continued squeezing her breasts together.

I felt a sudden longing and desire to touch her, to press myself against her body, to feel her heat wash through me and set me on fire. As I started to rise, she pushed me down again, giving me a warning look. I was to observe only for now, I realized. She slowly opened her legs, sitting cross legged in front of me. I gazed at her vagina, it felt moist to the touch and inviting. I immediately started getting a boner underneath my jeans. Sweat was built upon my forehead, as I gazed at her love spot. She noticed my discomfort, and slowly moved her hand between her legs, teasing me. Her finger touched her clitoris as she inserted it into herself. I watched as she moaned, pushing three fingers into her and starting to fuck herself faster. She kept moving them inside her vagina for a time, until finally she took them out. They dripped from her fluids and she licked each of her fingers one by one.

I was aroused and at the point of screaming with frustration. Just when I was thinking to finally get up, she suddenly came towards me. Her sharp, claw like fingers ripped through my thick clothes like they were paper. My clothes in tatters, I found myself nude with a thick hard boner pointing towards her. She smiled and spoke clearly, “I am going to suck you dry and fuck you till you beg for mercy. I am Tina Ching, the spirit of Hehuanshan and I will devour your nectar.” She immediately went down and grasped my cock in her hand pumping it slowly, making it harder and thicker. She opened her mouth and her tongue snaked out licking my tip. Moaning loudly, I started pumping my hips as I slowly pushed my shaft into her wide mouth. Growling, she shoved my shaft down her throat and started moving her head up and down. Her sharp teeth nipped at my pole, making me yelp and moan with pain and pleasure. I could feel her gagging on my cock as I grasped her golden hairs and pushed her head down further and harder. She squeezed out nectar from my shaft and I could not hold much longer as I released my fluids into her mouth.

Tina made slurping noises as she drank every last drop of my nectar. She was not done, however, as she climbed on top of my body. Pressing herself hard against me, she started kissing me on the lips. Her tongue rolled into my mouth as she slowly caressed my body with her nails. I started feeling sharp pain, as she scratched me. I could feel red lines as she clawed at my skin, while kissing me deeply. She rose up after a while, and I could feel my rock-hard shaft touching her vagina. She straddled me, spreading her legs wide on each side of me. Then she suddenly moved down hard, and pushed my rod all the way into her. I could feel the muscles inside her expanding and contracting as my shaft traveled all the way into her. Pushing her hands against my chest, she started rocking on top of my cock. I moaned along with her as she fucked herself hard with my cock. The way she fucked, I felt like my cock was going to rip her apart. My hands moved and grabbed her nipples, pulling on them hard. She moaned louder and kept fucking me without stopping. The bed rocked and shook, and I was sure our cries could be heard all over the mountain and beyond.

Unable to stop myself, I released my nectar filling her. She smiled with pleasure as I released myself. I could feel my juices overflowing from her vagina. Taking deep breaths, I slowly started to calm myself down. I was surprised though, as she started rocking on top of me again. I was breathless and my cock was starting to feel sore, but there was no stopping her. Tina glared at me and said between moans, “Fuck me hard Stallion, ram your shaft through me and make me scream.” I was beginning to realize the peril I was in, as it dawned upon me that she was not going to stop. Despite that, I was blissful and happy as I joyfully obeyed her commands. My shaft rammed inside her, drilling into her vagina. I could feel my shaft swell a few moments before I released once more.

Tina screamed with pleasure and collapsed on top of me for an instant. Then she rose up again fluidly and with grace, and went on all fours. Her hips shook and her wet dripping vagina invited me to fuck her from behind. Tired though I was, I immediately rose up and pushed my shaft deep into her from behind. Starting to move forward and backwards, I fucked her harder every time. My hands grabbed her hairs pulling on them, while I continued to pierce her. She was my mare now, and I was the stallion. With each thrust, I went closer towards releasing my fluids inside her. I screamed loudly, and let go of myself filling her with my wonderful nectar. At the same time, she squirted a torrent of her juices splattering our legs with the sticky liquid. Wanting to taste her, I immediately went down and pressed my mouth against her clitoris. Sucking hard, I started drinking her juices enjoying the heavenly taste. In all my life, I had never tasted anything like it. It was better than any wine or syrup.

Hours later, I was still on her bed and she was still fucking me as wildly as before. I had no strength left in me to stop her. My breath was ragged and my heart was beating at a strange rhythm. I thought I was going to die here in this cave. I had no energy left within me to stop her and to be honest, I did not want to stop her. It felt so great, I could never have enough of it. Knowing this, that I would die in the best possible way, I closed my eyes and went into a slumber losing consciousness.

I do not know what really woke me up. Perhaps it was hunger, or perhaps it was the sunlight shining on my face. I opened my eyes to find myself on top of Hehuanshan summit. It took me a fraction of a second to recall all my erotic adventures last night. Strangely enough, I had not died, and I felt completely restored. I searched for an hour for the cave entrance again, but no voice came to guide me. Tired, I slowly trudged down the mountain. My local driver — bless him — waited me with his jeep. He smiled as I came down from the mountain.

“What happened to you? Did you fall asleep there?” he asked curiously. I just shrugged and went to sit in the jeep, to resume my travels through the rest of Taiwan. Years later, I still remember that night as vividly as it was yesterday. I have not told anyone about it, because I doubt anyone will believe me. The only reminders of that erotic journey are my memories and the scars Tina gave me that fateful night. Even though, it has been years since I came back from Taiwan, I sometimes hear her through the wind. Maybe it is just my imagination, or maybe she is reaching out to me. If you ever go to Taiwan, on a cold, dark, wintry night; be wary of Tina Ching’s voice calling out to you. Proceed at your own peril, for she may let you leave or she may devour you for her pleasures.

Andrew Christian Stands For Sex, Power and Freedom

CoolFlex Brief with Show It Photo

I Absolutely Love Andrew Christian Underwear

Underwear is one of those things that people don’t necessarily pay as much attention to as they should. For some people it’s nothing more than a piece of fabric that sits underneath your clothes. However,

‘Not everything in life is black and white’

as for others it’s a statement and a symbol of their autonomy, confidence and an expression of their personality. Maybe because it’s something that is generally considered to be personal, and not something which everyone sees, but I have always believed that underwear is an important expression of not only who you are, but how you engage with the world as well. It’s an erotic form of freedom and expression that is uniquely you.

When I was asked to do a review on Andrew Christian Underwear, I was immensely excited. I have a few pieces of AC, which I absolutely love, and I was looking forward to trying some new stuff. I was sent three new pieces. A Cool Flex tagless red piece, a mesh underwear, and a pair of swimmers. The first thing I did when I got home was try them all on, and parade in front of the mirror. One of the things that I love about Andrew Christian, is that you don’t need to look like Topher Dimaggio in order to look good in underwear. The colours, the styles, the way they fit and hug the body just look good on anyone. You know how it is with some underwear, they look nice on the box on some delicious model, but once you get them out and put them on… they just don’t sit right. They pull, tug, and poke your junk in uncomfortable ways. They flatten it like a pancake, or worse, they just don’t fit everything at all. Male underwear is important, you never know when you’re going to be caught with your pants down, and that’s why wearing underwear can give you massive amounts of confidence.

My Teenage Years

The story begins in my teenage years. I moved out when I was 18. It wasn’t my greatest moment, however I felt that it was necessary. I needed freedom, I needed release and I needed the opportunity to be myself. I was a lowly nerdy young adult, with a yearning to experience the world in a way that was outside the constrictions of my family. It was a scary time, but at the same time it was incredibly enlightening and empowering. I made mistakes, I learnt, I grew in ways that had been denied to me and I experienced. The thing is that often

“People will try to limit your own sexual freedom, civil liberties and right to exist to increase their own power. And they may even be your own friends and family.”

Thankfully, I was one of the lucky ones. My parents were just a little too smothering with their love and wisdom.

My possessions did not account for much, but I quickly developed a single vice. Getting new underwear. I didn’t have a lot of money at the time, but every pay day I bought a new pair of underwear. Underwear to me was a private and empowering celebration of my identity, and my freedom. It was a hidden power that only I knew about, and it gave me a specific confidence in ways that others might not have understood. My love of underwear extends to this day and it has gotten me through some interesting times. The bright colours of my favourite underwear seemingly contrasted with the darkness of my life. It sounds strange, but the feeling of putting on new underwear is a feeling that cannot be surpassed. New underwear, the feeling of it against my skin reminded me about the simple joys of life and it helped me tremendously through my battle with depression and anxiety.

Now For The Underwear

Now, as for the underwear, I loved my coolflex pair. Of the three pairs I received, they were my favourite. When slipping them on they were smooth, and form fitting. They lifted everything in just the right way, but they did it in such a way that you didn’t even notice that there was support. Not to mention my ass looked absolutely amazing in them and I immediately took some photos and sent them to my partner – tonight was certainly going to be a fun night. Now, I’d been at Stonewall recently where they were showcasing some of Andrew Christian’s videos. If you haven’t had the chance to watch an Andrew Christian video then I suggest that you immediately stop reading this article, load up youtube or some other variant, grab some calorie free snack and then settle into a comfortable chair. You’re going to have some fun. In these videos they performed what they called the “bounce test”. Now a bounce test, for people that aren’t boys, is a demonstration of an underwear’s ability to provide movement during periods of activeness as well as provide support. Jumping up and down in some loose fitting underwear isn’t necessarily the most pleasant of feelings, and if they’re too tight then there’s going to be no movement at all. If you’re in a club you want some movement, you want the guy next to you noticing that your package is something more than just an immovable piece of playdough sitting in your pants, movement piques the curiosity of a guy and it turns them on even before they’ve taken off your underwear. The bounce test certainly worked – and I may or may not have turned myself on. Boo yeah.

The second piece of underwear was the mesh underwear. Now something like this takes a lot of confidence to wear. It’s completely, and utterly mesh and see through. There’s no modesty with this pair, if your pants are off you’re going to see everything. Now personally, I’m not usually a fan of mesh underwear. Firstly, your junk doesn’t look all that attractive when squished up against mesh looking like a strung out Christmas ham that hasn’t yet been dipped in honey and secondly, mesh underwear usually grips things in the wrong way and movement becomes a little strained and painful as a stray net rubs and rips something the wrong way. Andrew Christian have solved this by making the underwear more than just a net. Between the net and your junk there’s a very thin see through mesh that protects loose skin from being caught in the squares – great for people that aren’t circumcised, you’re not going to get any parts of your cock caught in this one. It’s a simple idea, it works well and despite looking a little squished for my liking, my partner absolutely loved the erotic nature that was the mesh and see through underwear.

Why does this story matter? Because Andrew Christian realises that underwear is more than just a piece of hip hugging fabric. Sexual power, and freedom of expression is important – and as Andrew Christian says in his book

‘Total Sexual power is complete control over yourself and the freedom to make your own choices.’

Wearing Andrew Christian Is A Choice

Wearing AC underwear is a choice, and I feel that it’s a powerful one at that. A lot of people underestimate the importance of underwear and there’s a lot of other underwear companies which simply mass produce fabric. Since becoming familiar with Andrew Christian, they’ve been a company which has always struck me as placing more importance on underwear that exceeds simply being a piece of fabric that is worn. Andrew Christian, unlike a bunch of other underwear out there, doesn’t flatten your package, and it might sound weird but when you look down and you see a nice looking bulge, it definitely boosts your mood as you slip into some jeans, shorts or whatever you happen to be wearing that day. Or if you choose to just waltz around the house in AC.

It seems that Andrew Christian feels the same way with the recent release of his book as well. His book, titled Sex Power and Freedom features images of the Andrew Christian boys with heartfelt and meaningful quotes. What I love about this book is that it’s not a book of advertising smut – it’s an empowering book with empowering quotes with boys that just happen to be wearing Andrew Christian underwear.

Quotes that I’ve re-used within this review to demonstrate their applications to life. It doesn’t come across as a cheesy self-promotional book, instead coming across as something that’s quite powerful and uplifting. That’s why my story matters when reviewing AC underwear, because they’re more than just fabric and cloth, they’re an expression of self-identification and empowerment. With the themes, thoughts behind and in this book, Andrew Christian transcends a fashion icon. Seamlessly reminding you of, not just amazing underwear, but a way of life.
