Meet The Readers: Joseph and Part II of Paul

My very favorite kind of post is reader submission posts! There's nothing more gratifying than knowing someone else has begun to wear a fundoshi. Thanks to these two readers, one seen here for the first time (Joseph) and the other a repeat feature (Paul) with brand new images.

Blogger's New Content Policy: Some Thoughts On A Regressive Implementation

On February 23rd, myself and many other long-time users of Blogger received this e-mail:

Dear Blogger User,

We're writing to tell you about an upcoming change to the Blogger Content 
Policy that may affect your account.

In the coming weeks, we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually 
explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity 
presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or 
where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking 
action on the content.

The new policy will go into effect on the 23rd of March 2015. After this 
policy goes into effect, Google will restrict access to any blog identified 
as being in violation of our revised policy. No content will be deleted, 
but only blog authors and those with whom they have expressly shared the 
blog will be able to see the content we've made private.

Our records indicate that your account may be affected by this policy 
change. Please refrain from creating new content that would violate this 
policy. Also, we ask that you make any necessary changes to your existing 
blog to comply as soon as possible, so that you won't experience any 
interruptions in service. You may also choose to create an archive of your 
content via Google Takeout 
(https://www.google.com/settings/takeout/custom/blogger).

For more information, please read here 
(https://support.google.com/blogger?p=policy_update).

Sincerely,
The Blogger Team

Fundoshi 4 All! certainly exists in the borderlands of sexuality and has at times posted explicit images. The 30-day warning of a global sea change in Blogger's policy is capricious, the time period allowed to overhaul a blog or suffer the consequences feels like an eviction. "Porn" has been repeatedly upheld as free speech by institutions as high as the U.S. Supreme Court and I have abided by the best practices available to me to "protect the innocent" -- no one is being forced to read Fundoshi 4 All; readers arrive here by choice. 

My thoughts on this and what you can do after the break.

Without Further Ado... Fundoshi!


Hope everyone enjoyed their official Fundoshi Day on February 14th. Of course, every day is Fundoshi Day here!

Fundoshi Day is February 14th!



February 14th has served as Fundoshi Day for the last several years, something that few hear about outside of Japan. Serving double duty as Valentines Day, this date conjures more sweet sticky sugarplums than Christmas ever could. Of course, Fundoshi Day is a little more undercover than Valentines Day. Or is it?

Here are my suggestions for February 14th:

1. Wear a bright red fundoshi. Or pink, if you'd rather. Any color as long as it's bright. If you choose white, make sure it is gleaming.
2. Make or purchase a second fundoshi and give it to someone you think is cute.
3. See if they'd like to have a hot cocoa, with marshmallows. Ask if they'd like it spiked.
4. Let the fundoshi do the rest!

Hope you have a great Fundoshi Day!!! Oh, and also, Happy Valentines Day.
