Hard News

posted by on December 26 at 9:15 AM


Slog somehow missed this very important story: Shots of David Beckham in Armani tighty-whities—reproduced above for reference purposes only—sent sales of tighty-whities soaring in the UK. TWs are now outselling boxers in the UK by two-to-one. The ad also sparked some debate over whether Beckham stuffed his shorts for the photo shoot. In other Beckham news, he’s proud to be a gay icon.

As you were.

And good morning to you!

Posh says of the stuffing rumor that he doesn't need to stuff. I believe she compared his cock to a "tractor exhaust pipe".

Lucky bitch.

I'm still partial to Freddie.

the mound is way too smooth; he's wearing a cup.

and besides, he's British; the odds are against him.

A tractor exhaust pipe?!?! Good heavens!

I love Becks, and not only because of, well, the obvious. But I ain't wearing no TWs. Never!

they 'shopped the fuck out of that entire photo. i've seen him topless enough times to know his body shape. he's definitely buff, but his muscles don't normally cast shadows.

Sorry to dash everyone's underwear fantasies, but almost all ads done by high end underwear manufacturers stuff their models. It is routine in underwear photography. Not necessarily to make the models look like they have huge packages, but to round out the shape. To, in fact, make the package a uniform shapeless blob, and less obvious an outline of a cock head and distinct balls. They use a wide variety of tiny bits of foam, stuffed here and there around the model's tackle to give the package a plump but indistinct shape.

And yes, this image has been Photoshopped all to hell.

Still, Rowrrr!

I'm not one for tighty whities, but this makes me feel sooo dirty.

to #7:

so that's what a fluffer does!

hey, wait a minute - those aren't tighty whiteys at all! they're bikini briefs, aka manties. yes, there is a difference, and yes, it matters.

Posted by brandon | December 26, 2007 12:13 PM

Did you also miss the quote from Posh talking about how big his cock is?

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 26, 2007 12:27 PM

@11: It totally matters. I'll wear manties. TWs, no way...

Posted by Mike in MO | December 26, 2007 12:34 PM

i don't trust her to be honest about how big his cock is. she's his wife, ffs. what else is she going to say?

Posted by brandon | December 26, 2007 1:05 PM


Oh my.

My my my...

Stuffed & 'shopped, that's how I likes me fantasies.

I am almost as straight as they come, but even I can recognize that is an Adonis. What is a man like that (plus extremely rich) doing married to a plastic space alien?

The Soup did a hilarious bit on his junk last week. Here is the YouTube link:

his cock is as real as her tits. what could be worse than plastic barbie and ken dolls talking about their private parts?

@2: I read Posh's "tailpipe" remark too. I say, time to put up or shut up. Preferably put up.

" Answering questions on British radio, Beckham hinted he had metrosexual tastes even as a child, recounting how he chose to wear knickerbockers, long socks and ballet shoes as a page boy at a wedding."

and he's str8? I'd pay to see David Beckham do drag and see him walk into Pony, if it opens in a new location. I'm sure guys would start wanking out in the open.

It's stuffed. I saw a segment on ProSieben (you have to understand German to follow the clip), where they compared a picture of him at a soccer game to this one you've posted. At the soccer game he had pulled his shorts up around his "unit" so that you got a good idea of the size. It definitely did not match this post. In fact, several fashion photographers were shown both pictures to comment on them, and they all agreed that there had been some "enhancement".
