The Nether Regions

The blog that slips an affectionate hand between the thighs of the regional media

Sometimes it’s just in the jeans

with one comment

Quite fittingly, the first substantive post on The nether regions is all about one of the regional media’s favourite topics: flashers.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that stories about grown men revealing their private parts at unsuspecting women or vulnerable children sell papers. This was demonstrated quite aptly when I walked past a newsagent’s shop in Preston, Lancashire:

Wallace & Gromit: The Pervy Trousers

The urge to purchase a copy of the Lancashire Evening Post has rarely been so strong. It turns out a man, 57, was convicted of flashing at two young children and a key piece of evidence was a pair of “specially modified dark blue pinstripe jeans” found in his car. The great thing about this news story is the combination of surreal detail with the dry tone of courtroom reporting.

There’s nothing funny about flashing your bits at children, but there is something funny about being forced to admit to the court that you have direct access to your genitals.

Evans admitted he had not been wearing any underwear that day and often didn’t on a weekend. He denied the trousers had been modified for sexual purposes. However, he admitted that if he wore them without underwear he had direct access to his genitals.

The offender was eventually chased away by a local boxer, Shoaeb Member. You couldn’t write this script.

Mr Member ran down to the ginnel but the man had gone.

Is that a euphemism for something?
