Sexy Santa?

It's holiday season. With all the cheer buzzing about in the air you start seeing the reemergence of tacky holiday theme products crawling out of the woodwork. Plastic reindeer on the roof, giant snowglobes containing a life-sized Frosty the Snowman, AND my #1 favorite: Sexy Santa Lingerie.

I love stuff like this because it is hilarious to me. Santa is a loveable old man who only works 1 night per year delivering gifts to children, yet somehow our consumer society has decided that his trademark red velour with white fur trim should have an erotic application i.e. skimpy women's underwear.

It seems that every character, ultimately, ends up having a sexy lingerie version of itself. I've even seen a ladies' sexy Harry Potter costume.

I'm not sure if this phenomenon is for the ladies wearing the costumes or for the men viewing them. Costumes are fun and, as ladies, we often like to feel sexy while we're dressed up (no matter how un-sexy the character we are mimicing is). So on one hand, sexy costumes are sort of empowering.

On the other hand, the costumes might be made with the men in mind. Apparently a lot of guys secretly wish they could fuck Harry Potter. or Santa.

If this floats your boat, more power to ya, but personally I just cannot feel anything other than silly while dressed like a tarted up Santa groupie. Although I must admit, it is fun to say "Have you been a naughty boy this year?"
