Pants optional

At the Gifu festival I went to a couple of weeks ago, it seems that pants were optional. There were lots of bare bums (some good, some I would have rather NOT have seen), but I only took a photo of a couple. I'd feel a bit like the pervey gaijin if I took any more....

They are probably wearing fundoshi

Not! It's about as good as a guy wearing hard yakka stubbies with it all hanging out... urk!

Hi Anon - yeh, they were wearing fundoshi, though it's not one of my favourite looks ;)

Hi Cont. - I'm with you there! Mind you... there was the occassional cute bum, but you probably had to be a girl (or that way inclined) to appreciate them ;)

'Pants Optional'

Great title for a blog post. Coincidentally, it was the name of the last English course I taught before my last employer asked me to leave.

Guess, I'm just too cutting-edge for my own good.

By the way, Melanie, I'd love for you to drop a comment at my new website once in a while.

Oh dear God! The shame of self-promotion. :(

Mmm.. Billywest... interesting class that would have been!

Sorry I hadn't dropped by for a while, very behind in my bloggy life. Love the new site! Have just added it to my blog roll.
