  • Perhaps the ultimate sexual buzz kill, the harem pant renders even the most shapely legs flabby and absurd, a confusing formless goo in sartorial form.

  • "Nothing gets a man's copulatory organ more aroused than the prospect of banging a girl who's dressed like him," Medine jokes. The bow tie, or the Lady Bowner, is an easy touch and a surefire way to confuse the magnets in a male's sexual compass.
