    SILVERDALE, Wash. -- A Bainbridge Island man is in jail for allegedly shoplifting a mannequin from an "adult entertainment" store and then coming back later the same night to steal sex toys and lingerie. Lovers, formerly known as Lovers Package, claims to enhance people-to-people relationships, but one shoplifter wasn't interested in real people. Instead, he wanted one of the store's sexy mannequins.  "He basically just ran into one of the doors, tried to grab an entire mannequin and run off with it.

    Hurricane-relief Guardsmen tossed out of armory - for Victoria's Secret show The Victoria’s Secret show must go on — even if it means kicking out hardworking men and women in uniform. Dozens of National Guardsmen, and Army and Air Force personnel who have been sleeping at Manhattan’s Lexington Armory in between hurricane-relief shifts are being booted — to make room for Victoria’s Secret models in anticipation of Wednesday’s runway show. About 300 uniformed personnel have been bunking down at the armory at various times since Sandy hit. But their numbers will be reduced to 60 by Wednesday for the event,...

    600-year-old bra and underwear discovered in an Austrian castle Contemporary bras are more comfortable, modified versions of corsets — or so it was believed, until a 2007 discovery changed the way we see women's underwear. Working with a team of her colleagues, archaeologist Beatrix Nutz recently publicized her discovery of several linen bras and some underwear in a medieval castle. Nutz has presented academic papers about her discovery, and even analyzed the underwear for DNA (see picture). But the public didn't hear about the medieval bras until a BBC history program showed pictures of them. Nutz and colleagues also found...

Noah, who is not even high school age yet, is teaming up with best friend Emily Grace Reaves, eight, and Ooh! La, La! Couture designers for the project. The two youngsters will release the 'trendy, sweet, yet edgy' designs in time for Valentine's Day. However, parents may raise an eyebrow or two at the grown-up nature of the slightly risqué designs. But whatever spin is put on it, some will see the venture as a little perverse. Back in October,...

This led to protests across the Muslim world, some of which escalated into violence with police firing on the crowds (resulting in more than 100 deaths, all together), including setting fire to the Danish Embassies in Syria, Lebanon and Iran, storming European buildings, and desecrating the Danish, Dutch, Norwegian and German flags in Gaza City.

    Before her wedding last year, Huda Batterjee went abroad to buy her bridal lingerie — she just couldn't bear the humiliation of discussing her most intimate apparel with a man. She had little choice: there are almost no saleswomen in Saudi Arabia. Now a group of Saudi women — sick of having to deal with male sales staff when buying bras or panties, not to mention frilly negligees or thongs — have launched a campaign this week to boycott lingerie stores until they employ women. It's an irony of the kingdom's strict segregation of the sexes. Only men are employed...

Gail Lee, managing director of clothing business Leethal Fashion Accessories, has called for the Federal Government to subsidise half the cost of sexy lingerie to keep the zing in Australian marriages. With about 40 per cent of Australian marriages ending in divorce, Ms Lee said a woman wearing sexy lingerie would spice up a flagging marriage and dissuade wayward partners from straying. "Financial difficulties have many marriages under pressure and, if there are arguments and problems, they...

But the Lingerie Bowl is a marketing risk the automaker, which has become known for its sexually-suggestive ads, says it's willing to take. For 20 minutes during the Super Bowl on Feb. 1, 14 models dressed in lingerie will participate in a tackle football game. The program will be broadcast live on a pay-per-view channel for an estimated $20 to $30 viewing fee.
