That changes today, and what better time for a first time? This week, your friendly neighborhood GK celebrates the 10-year anniversary of his lost virginity. Aside from having to wash my sheets a lot more, the ensuing decade has been a mighty improvement over the previous 25 years.
Appropriately, we will celebrate by going back to bedroom basics. I’m passing the mic to my accomplice tFox, who earned the nickname by being, well, a tiny fox. Though after these photos, she might henceforth be known as Girl with the Dragonfly Tattoo.
For those who would like to get better at removing a woman’s bra with one hand, tFox offers two simple ways (I happen to prefer the first). And away we go:
It’s much more fun to have your clothes taken off you than to do it yourself, so don’t kid yourselves, gentlemen: this one’s as much for us ladies as it is for you.
Like you, women want to keep those makeout sessions moving, and there’s nothing quite like the guy who can slide his hand up your back — lips still locked — and pop your bra off before you even know where he’s headed. Mmmm.
Besides the immediate benefit of being bra-less with a boy, it also signals to us that you’re probably gonna have some game in other areas too, and just the thought of that is hot.
Don’t worry, you’re not raising the bar on yourself so much as setting the tone. I know that a guy who can get my bra off smoothly took the time to learn to do it, which tells me he pays attention. That makes me want to play my cards right, so he’ll spend some of that attention on me.
So with the help of two of my girlfriends extraordinaire, (Hot Face behind the camera and Lolo in front with me) we’ve put together a step-by-step tutorial on two different techniques. Look ‘em over and pick the one you think will be easiest for you.
Most bras use an eye-and-hook clasp, with usually two, three or four hooks. When it’s on, the hooks will be on her right, the loops on her left. The hooks latch into only one set of loops, so each technique revolves around releasing the tension (ahem), sliding the hooks out of the loops and then letting go. They’re designed to be quick, so once you’ve got it down, it should only take you a second or two.
Technique One: The Pinch
This technique is less complicated in execution than the Flip, but you have to make sure you’re just pinching the strap, and not your girl. Extra bonus: with a little practice, you can do this one through her shirt.
Put your thumb and pointer finger on either side of the clasp. You can also use your middle finger, and may have to if the bra has a wide strap with more than two hooks.
Pinch the material together so the hooks aren’t pulling on the loops (releasing the tension!). Try to make sure your fingertips are each placed right over the hooks and loops on either side.
Rub your fingers together to pop the hooks out of the loops. You should be able to feel them slide out with a little pop or click. That’s it!
This is how I take my bra off. The mechanics are trickier, but once mastered are incredibly reliable. It’s a good one for when you’re on top of a speeding train and need the extra stability.
Slip your pointer finger under her strap, from above.
Slide your finger to her left, so it goes between the extra strap material that is normally just tucked underneath and the strap itself.
Use your index finger and thumb to hold the loop half of the strap, and put your middle finger on the outside of the hook half.
Then, use your middle finger to hold the hook side of the strap in place as you push the loops out from the hooks with your thumb and index finger. (We couldn’t figure out how to shoot that part in a way that would be helpful, but once your fingers are in the right place it’ll be intuitive, don’t worry.)
Success! (GK, in a fit of jealous rage, cruelly censored the unhooked photo. Use your imagination, fellas.)
Study the technique you like best, then ask the next girl you make out with to let you give it a whirl. Maybe even practice a few times with her. Trust me, she’ll think it’s sweet, and nothing beats hands-on (oh yes) experience.
Here’s one sexy song you can play with her:
