Panty fetish

Gay men have long been obsessed with both celebrity culture and underwear. Yes, typically, these things are separate fetishes. But for Belgium-based artist Jan Bucquoy the two are one. Bucquoy’s “Musee du Slip” has just opened in Brussels. Yes, that does translate to “underpants museum.”

The exhibit features framed underwear of politicians, entertainers, and artists. It’s odd yet fascinating. Wouldn’t you want to know if Obama is a boxers or briefs kind of guy? While the exhibit already features Margaret Thatcher and Nicolas Sarkozy, Bucquoy really wants to obtain the Pope’s drawers “or the Iranian president. People would queue to see that.”
