BUTT’s very first cover star Bernhard Willhelm has seen the future and thank heavens spandex is still around. If his new exhibition at MOCA Pacific Design Center is any indication, future consumers are still sporting colorful, skin-tight activewear — and taking cues from workout guru Jane Fonda, who popularized that leotard/sock combo back in 1982.

BUTT inquired about the lift-and-separate technology behind the protruding pouch and Willhelm had this to say: ‘The suits and underwear have a special pattern which works with a double pouch/built-in cockring-cockadoo. The first layer has a hole with elastic for the cockring effect, the second layer has an anatomic shape which pulls the fabric over’.

Willhelm is offering his leotards for men and some other kinky gear, like a customized wooden paddle, in the MOCA store.

Bernhard Willhelm 3000: When Fashion Shows The Danger Then Fashion Is The Danger runs from 7 February through 17 May 2015 at MOCA Pacific Design Center, 8687 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, California. Admission is free.
