It’s a sampler pack for gay men. I first discovered this new product on Pinterest, and then when I connected with them over social media, I learned they’re actually based in Berlin. I met Vlad over tea and learned a bit more about their company. Run by Jarmo and his boyfriend, NextGayThing is a mail-order curation of fashion & beauty products for gay men. I got a sample of their December pack and it included a pair of hot-pink underwear, some moisturizers, lip balm and eye cream.
Filling out my profile on the website was easy and fun and based on my answers, the guys at NextGayThing choose products they thought I’d enjoy. Most important is the underwear choice. With about one gazillion sexy mens underwear lines, I don’t think they’ll have a hard time finding something new or unexpected for customers. The brand I got was from Supawear — which I’d heard of but never really shelled the cash out for. My verdict? They’re pretty hot.
I really love the idea of NextGayThing. I don’t spend all my time worrying about fashion or beauty, but I do like to look good. These guys send you whatever’s hip or new and it requires very little thinking on your part. It helps that the website is easy to use. While I got the first pack for free, I definitely plan to keep the subscription running for a few months to see what other gay goods I might get. Gay culture curated. Sweet.
