BONOBOS: PANTS FOR EVERY SOCIO-SEXUAL SITUATION
Is it just me or are the butts of American men looking a little bit tighter these days? Well, according to studies, Americans continue to become less fit so it probably isn't my perception that's changing, but it may be the newly popularized cuts coming from the "newish" clothing company, Bonobos.
"Bonobos" is an interesting name choice and I think it's quite intentional that sexual intercourse plays a major role in Bonobos society. Additionally, I'm sure the marketing team spent hours in board rooms discussing the allopatric speciation that led to the evolutionary distinction between bonobos and chimpanzees and likened that natural evolution to the ever-expanding divide between urban-sexual (ie. metrosexual/gay) men who care about they way in which their ass is presented in society to the pleated pants-wearing Neandarthals who seem to like Santorum.
I haven't tried any on myself yet, but I do have a nice fitting pair of khaki slacks that I've started telling people are Bonobos when they politely mention how fit I look in them and everyone nods encouragingly. Perhaps it's time for more of us to don ass appearance friendly pants and "penis-fence" and "rump rub" as often as the bonobos do to keep everything on the up-and-up.
"Sexual intercourse plays a major role in bonobo society observed in captivity, being used as what some scientists perceive as a greeting, a means of forming social bonds, a means of conflict resolutions, and post-conflict reconciliation. Bonobos are the only non-human animal to have been observed engaging in all of the following sexual activities: face-to-face genital sex(although a pair of Western Gorillas has been photographed performing face-to-face genital sex), tonge kissing, and oral sex. In scientific literature, the female-female behavior of touching genitals together is often referred to as GG rubbing or genital-genital rubbing."
"Bonobo males occasionally engage in various forms of male-male genital behavior. In one form, two males hang from a tree limb face-to-face while "penis fencing". This also may occur when two males rub their penises together while in face-to-face position. Another form of genital interaction ("rump rubbing") occurs to express reconciliation between two males after a conflict, when they stand back-to-back and rub their scrotal sacs together."
