For your enjoyment, a clip of an 80s yoga video... definitely catering to the "female gaze". *cough* May not be safe for the average office or the unfunky. Also, definitely NOT a "beginner's cooldown".

Note: Ignore the title. They are not strippers and those are not thongs. Just some hunky men in briefs and some funky music.

OMG! I don't know what's scariest: the breathy voiceover, the cheesy ballad, or the guys breathing in all the fog machine "atmosphere"!

Oh. My. God.

My jaw actually dropped, I was not expecting it to be that blatant.

Hmmmm. Perhaps I need to rewatch with the sound *on.* Alas, am now at work...

Yes, yes you do. It's the breathy voiceover that really makes it. :D

Or the gay male gaze! This is equal opportunity pornification.

Ah, right. Clearly I was not caffeinated enough for my sarcasm filters to have engaged yet. *g*

OK. How sad is it that when I was watching this, I was worried that they should not be rounding their lower backs in Paschimottanasana, and that the one guy needed to get his shoulder blades on to his back in Cobra. Not to mention the guy who I'm not sure got all the way onto his shoulders for shoulderstand and was too far down on his back.

Maybe it would have been different if I watched with the sound on...

I was watching them do the side stretches and thinking, oh yeah, that's back when they thought bouncing the stretch was a good idea. :D

I was pretty caught up in the "OMG, terrible form" thing, but yeah, all the bouncing and stuff was standard form in the 1980s. And tight short briefs weren't all that uncommon. See vintage 70s and early 80s pro Basketball shorts for comparison. At the time it would have been considered sexy but not porny, though maybe a little gay because of the "guys don't do yoga, guys don't do yoga together, guys definitely don't watch other guys do yoga".

The fog machine is so deliciously cheezy and stupid, I don't know what to do or where to look when it starts up. Thanks for the laugh!
