I received a lot of really insightful feedback after sharing my confusion and semi-horror about male spanx. The best and most educational definitely came out of a conversation with Natalie. I think that it really shows our intelligence, as well as our inability to stick to one topic of conversation. ENJOY:
natalie: i think manx are only supposed to minimize the abs region
me: the dude is wearing them on his peen
me: aka underwear..
natalie: well the underwear ones i think are just normal underwear. and then the longer ones-the tightening material is only on the body not on the peen
natalie: or at least thats what my intimates buyer friend told me
me: i misinterpreted
natalie: apparently its doing really well
me: i was like DONT THEY WANT THEIR PENISES TO LOOK HUGE?
natalie: that is not where they want to minimize
natalie: men have problem areas too haha
me: but their clothing is so much looser
natalie: i don't really get the total use
me: if i were a dude i'd eat whatever i wanted
me: and pee everywhere
me: not at the same time... obviously
natalie: but apparently guys kept asking for them! the spanx lady had no clue
natalie: MAYBE AT THE SAME TIME
me: that wouldn't be sanitary
me: but i guess if i were a guy i wouldn't care?
natalie: pee without hands. eat with both?
me: no you need one hand to aim!!
me: at least i would think
natalie: WOULD YOU CARE
me: otherwise wouldn't you pee all over yourself?
me: i would care if i was pissing on my self!!
natalie: just stand over the toilet. spread out your legs
natalie: IDK I DONT HAVE A PEEN
me: haha no that doesnt work
me: i have brothers
natalie: okay one hand to aim, one to eat?
me: make sure to mark them
me: so you know which is which
natalie: just take in a small sandwich
me: a finger sandwich
me: a tea cake
natalie: a nice scone
me: perhaps some jam
me: best conversation ever
