Here's something I wish would find it's way to the Western Hemisphere!
Of course, we could start our own fundoshi nights, in our living rooms or at rentals, at camp sites or resorts. Hmmm. We should do that! Get to know other fundoshi-wearers who live near you, and initiate the curious into the joys of the fundoshi.
I've also included a couple photos of people frolicking in fundoshi clubs, and some commercial advertising photographs from websites that sell fundoshis to round this post out. They can be surprisingly spicy! Hope you enjoy it!
(Several of these fliers were found by ShyC. Thank you! I really appreciate these kinds of finds! Several others are from the fundoshi nights organized by Fundoshitaro. If anyone else comes across fundoshi night fliers -- or if you make your own -- I'd love to see them.)

Fundoshi 4 All! boasts a readership that isn't just interested in fundoshi, they're fundoshi wearers too! It's my mission here to find other fundoshi wearers and introduce new people to the fundoshi, to create a community that wears and shares this simple, noble swath of fabric. I'd like to present two of our readers in all their glory: Dolivier and CW BK.

To be truthful, I don't know. Maybe you don't project yourself into the models' loincloths, but often I do. Maybe imaginary scenarios don't play out in your head where you and they are fundoshi-clad and fevered, touching and caressing, bulging fundoshi grazing and pushing against one another while your chests rise and fall.
The sexual and the spiritual. The sexual is the spiritual.

"Bondage as a sexual activity first came to notice in Japan in the late Edo period. Generally recognized as "father of Kinbaku" is Seiu Ito, who started studying and researching Hojōjutsu is credited with the inception of Kinbaku, though it is noted that he drew inspiration from other art forms of the time including Kabuki theatre and Ukiyoe woodblock prints. Kinbaku became widely popular in Japan in the 1950s through magazines such as Kitan Club and Yomikiri Romance, which published the first naked bondage photographs. In the 1960s, people such as Eikichi Osada began to appear performing live SM shows often including a large amount of rope bondage, today these performers are often referred to as Nawashi (rope master) or Bakushi (from kinbakushi, meaning bondage master)."
