There’s nothing quite like the story of a stripper to remind you of the importance of being a well-groomed male of the species. Let’s cut to the chase. When a man makes money by performing the trouser-snake shake one can’t help but look down and ask: “What can I do for you, dear penis?”

Fans of the penis will be beaming at these generous pampering trends that will return some splendour to the much-maligned member.


Pubic hair remains a contentious issue for men. Gents around the world scratch their heads in confusion as, it seems, the growing preference for a hairless thumper ­becomes more fashionable.

A new report released by the Sorbet salon group reveals a 13% increase in – horrifying as it may sound – Manzilians over the past two years. The trend – also called “a back, sack and crack” – is frequently attributed to the porn industry’s baby-bald actors, but may also be influenced by the general increase in male grooming since metrosexuals ­became a big thing.

But it seems the saying “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush” rings truer than ever, as medical experts widely acknowledge that a healthy hedge does more than simply cushion the pushin’, but protects your member from the infectious dangers it may encounter on its adventures.


Rick Owens’ latest collection at Paris Fashion Week ­revealed a trend that will make even the most courageous swordsman a little anxious. In subtle tones of greige, his statuesque male models floated down the runway in kaftans pierced with gaping peepholes at crotch level. His move towards penis pride, while shocking, reveals a sartorial trend towards more revealing male undergarments.

A major poll published by men’s underwear brand Garçon reports the R65?billion men’s underwear industry is seeing increased interest in experimental styles – reportedly influenced by other men in locker rooms. Blue is now the new black according to the survey, with 41% preferring briefs to boxers.

Keep your eyes peeled for the new breathable mesh styles appearing at speciality stores. A jockstrap will also never fail to keep your nearest and dearest bowing to your bulge.


Dick décor is coming of age as inventors, designers and artists hop on the willy wagon.

The cock ring has been in use for more than 2?000 years, made from stone, jade, ivory and even goats’ eyelids, to provide not simply relief for erectile dysfunction but ­prolong impetus and enhance sexual satisfaction. The 21st century has taken these rings a step further with the ­Bondara vibrating cock ring.

The Bondara fits around your bit to record your heart rate, thrusts per minute and calories burnt. It then syncs with the SexFit app that stores all your sexual prowess data in cyberspace to tell you how your skills can improve.

More adventurous accessorisers could opt for the Prince Albert ring (pierced through the urethra) or, less painfully, opt to be “pedazzled” – the curious art of penis ­bedazzling using glitter and sequins.
