Peaches Sold as Sexy Butts in China (via Kotaku)
Peaches have long been compared to backsides. Because, well, peaches look like tushes! And now, thanks to some fruit venders in China, they really look like butts. Sexy butts.
These peaches are apparently being sold to capitalize on the the upcoming romantic Qixi Festival. They’re a novelty present! And should be taken as such. But, they aren’t cheap: A box of nine panty fruit is 498 yuan or US$80.
The peaches are getting mainstream coverage in China. Online, some people have been delighted by the peaches, while as Sina explains, some think they are rather vulgar! They look kind of cheeky to me.
China News reports that these unusual peaches are called “Ripe Fruit” (蜜桃成熟時), a name evoking obvious sexual connotations. The panty peaches were first developed by a fruit vender in Nanjing, with each pair of underwear slipped on each sexy butt by hand. As SDChina reports, the peaches are from Yangshan, in Wuxi, an area that’s also famous for its lingerie and garment industry.
I’m definitely attracted to women but I’m more attracted to men and when i seek out partners for romantic (not purely sexual) reasons i’m usually seeking out men
for the longest time I thought that to be bisexual i had to be 50/50 attracted to both men and women but that’s not true sooo
Same. I think it’s pretty rare to be EXACTLY RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE 50/50 and not have at least a slight preference in one direction or the other.
I’ve done SEXIN’ with them but I haven’t been in a relationship with a girl yet, but that’s not an entirely conscious choice—for one thing, I was in a relationship with a boy for seven fucking years (and it was actually not awful for a whole one of them!), which is more than half of my dating life. There’s a girl I’m really interested in currently and I’ve asked out a couple of other female friends, but all of them have been either taken or turned me down.
Interestingly, although my relationships thus far have been with guys and I am madly madly MADLY in love with one particular guy, it’s my female friends that I have crushes on pretty much all of, and when I’m just out and about it’s much more often girls I’m attracted to.
But I think this might be because my taste in guys has been, um, refined a bit by the aforementioned one particular guy, and sadly there are not enough skeletal middle-aged men with floppy hair wearing big black glasses and Converse running around the streets of Seattle. Which is probably just as well, cos I would SHAMELESSLY THROW MYSELF AT THEM.
so if a bisexual dates someone of another gender, they’re really straight and looking for attention
and if a bisexual dates someone of the same gender, they’re really gay and calling themself bi out of internalized homophobia
and if a bisexual is polyamorous, they’re the reason bisexuals “can’t be trusted”
and single bisexuals are predatory liars
what the fuck are we supposed to do
important ship tropes:
- fake dating
- SECRET dating
- being locked in a room or trapped in a small space
- huDDLING FOR WARMTH
- BEING ON THE BRINK OF ADMITTING THEIR FEELINGS FOR EACH OTHER BUT THEN GETTING INTERRUPTED
- finishing each other’s sentences, KNOWING WHAT THE OTHER IS ABOUT TO SAY
- tou chi NG!!!! FOr eheA DS!!!!!!11!!
- wearing each other’s clothes
- doing that thing where they accidentally get real close and, like, stare meaningfully at each other for a few seconds too long
- channeling the inner romcom and having an epiphany about how much they care about each other and RACING TO CONFESS THEIR LOVE
- fucking. Now or Never Kiss
- HEIGHT DIFFERENCES
- defending each other to scathing tertiary or otherwise minor characters but ONLY WHEN THE OTHER ISN’T AROUND
- reincarnation or time loop or OOOOH TIME TRAVEL SCENARIOS
- dramatically saving each other from certain death or barely surviving something that almost makes the other break down and just smirking wearily and mumbling flippant smartass remarks to HIDE THE DEPTH OF THEIR FEELINGS
- undercover as lovers, the classic
- ALMOST KISSING. like getting so close that they start to close their eyes and hold their breath and then SOMETHING HAPPENS and they jump apart, that is MORE VALUABLE THAN ANY ACTUAL KISSING
- casually sitting on each other’s laps during ensemble cast conversations or scenes
- did i mention F AKE DATinG
