The extreme example of style equals sex when it comes to jeans, would be the Zip Around style. Zip Around Jeans are called that because they have a zipper that unzips starting in the front, and going all the way to the back, making them "easy access" jeans. These style jeans were first made in the late 1970s and early 1980s by brands such as Rag City Blues, Fredericks of Hollywood, and Chemin De Fer. More recently, modern low rise cuts of this style of jean have been made by Frankie B, BEBE, and Lip Service.
