    Men risk anticlimax with anatomy-boosting pants

    LONDON (Reuters) Hundreds of British men are risking a Valentine's Day anticlimax for their partners by stocking up on anatomy-boosting underpants ahead of the most romantic weekend of the year.
    British department store group Debenhams said Thursday it had seen a 76 percent surge in online sales of the 18 pounds-a-pair ($28) underwear in the past week.
    The pants work by using a lift and hold feature at the front, like a male version of the cleavage-boosting Wonderbra.
    "The briefs mean that no man ever needs to feel inadequate again on the most passionate day of the social calendar," said Rob Faucherand, head of men's accessories buying at Debenhams.
    "However we can't be held responsible for what happens once the pants come off," he added.

    False advertising! I'd be very disappointed that he wasn't "just happy to see me".

    Actually, I have to think that this is only fair for men to have a 'support' garment. I mean, after all, we women have bras that do wonders for some of us - in my case - defying the laws of gravity. I wonder how many men have been disappointed when the bra came off and the truth came out? ( I'm referring to women in general.) And just picture every woman in your town out in public without a foundation garment. What's good for the goose is good for the gander? (I've always wanted to use that phrase but never had a real good opportunity.) Or is it good for the gander is good for the goose?

    women use a bra to look young, i think. men never looked like that normally. even when they were young.
