Let's preface this with a little disclaimer. Perhaps we, your humble nimble-fingered MTV Style folk, are arriving late to an already widely discussed ladyplight, which is plaguing so much of our population that corrective devices, such as this here SmoothGroove, are needed. Nay, demanded. Perhaps there's some horrific womanhood rite of passage we have yet to experience, some (hopefully) distant bridge we have yet to cross, that leads you square into a daily battle with an all-too-visible *achem* labia majora. But, like...has camel toe really reached an epidemic status so as to warrant the existence of these LADYCUPS?? (Note: Squeamish boys, if you haven't already clicked the EFF out of your browser window, I suggest you do so now.)

According to the makers of SmoothGroove, "a staggering 55% of women, irrespective of age, size or weight, experience camel toe at some point," and for that staggering 55 percent they've created this device, which aims to rid your silhouette of the dreaded visible front-wedgie. The synchronicity of the stiff middle panel and the flexible outer "medical grade polymer" working in concert is supposed to prevent your inseam from riding up while allowing for comfort while wearing the, erm, device. The SmoothGroove manufacturers provide plenty of information, a motivational promo video, and even a vivid Before & After display in their "About Us" section, but we kinda can't get over how, despite all their best efforts to ward off comparisons to sanitary products, this ish totally gives you the outline of a maxi pad! I mean, reeeeally? Is that really the lesser of two evils? "EGADS! The world is gawking at my pudendal cleft! How shall I rectify this? Oh, I know, BY PUTTING A GIGANTIC PAD BETWEEN MY LEGS." What the what?? Am I being Punk'd? Is this an elaborate addendum to the Saturday Night Live Kotex Classic commercial? Would you actually wear this filigreed ladypart guard? And how much better is this Camelflage underwear looking right about now? These are all real questions. Let's discuss.
