My friend posted a pic of a Garfield cock ring and I have some questions now:

Is it a gag gift? Would anyone really use it? In what context? What effect would that have in various situations? What exactly is the role of that humor (and various sorts of humorous buttplugs I’ve seen) in their sexuality?

In general, how do people use humor in their sartorial choices? What kinds of humor are performed via clothing and accessories? Which clothing and which accessories? Is this gendered or do the practices vary along lines of age/orientation, etc? What sorts of clothing/accessories never encode humor, and why is that? What sorts of norms are being acknowledged and reinforced with these patterns?
