Do you remember Coed Naked T-shirts? They made them from 1990 through 2005, and they were quite popular my senior year in high school.
The basic premise behind Coed Naked t-shirts was the "innocent" slogan that related to the sport or activity depicted on the shirt. No one, such as a parent or school official, could get mad at you for wearing the shirt, because if they thought the shirt's message was lewd, well, then it was just them reading their own deviance into the shirt's perfectly upbeat and positive message.
I personally wore the Coed Naked Volleyball t-shirt, and the slogan was: "You score on the floor." My all-time personal favorite was probably the Coed Naked Pool t-shirt. The slogan for that one was: "Get felt on the table."
Why did the manufacturer discontinue making the shirts in 2005? Maybe it was just the end of an era.
In honor of the t-shirt that was a part of my formative years, I'm thinking of coming out with a commemorative Coed Naked t-shirt, well, t-shirt. The design on the shirt would be a Coed Naked t-shirt, of course, and the slogan would be: "Get inside one." It would surely sell millions. You'd buy one, right?
Think about a cultural trend or fad that was popular at some point in your life. Did you buy into it like everyone else? Why or why not?
"People had a habit of looking at me as if I were some kind of mirror instead of a person. They didn't see me, they saw their own lewd thoughts, then they white-masked themselves by calling me the lewd one." -- Marilyn Monroe
