I like it a lot.
Have you seen the Vin-T-Bikinis. This lady started this business taken authentic vintage t-shirts and turning them into bikinis. They sell from $135+. Check them out here

Okay, I see a bit more where you're going with this.

Personally, I would tone down the nipple on the girl to the right...but, that's just me. *It's evocative enough without that.

Hmmm....friction....dissimilar surfaces...guys and girls are dissimilar. *What about the idea of skin rubbing against skin? *A certain amount of friction is good on that subject.

What about body parts? *What do guys like about girl's bodies? *Curves? *Curves are good...curve of a girl's cheek leading into her neck...neck into her shoulder, curve of her waist line, curve of the small of her back. *

What about a guy's hand moving against one of those curves, maybe a rough workman's hand, strong, calloused....causing friction.

Strong and calloused vs. soft and curvy.

Shy away from a literal translation. *Evoke emotion without being 'in your face.' *

Just a few ideas. *This will be fun to see what you come up with.

Keith

I actually saw the brand on TV. Not sure what the show was called, but they bring new ideas/products on and critique the name, idea, pros, cons, marketing, price, etc. and at the same time it brings attention to the product. I do remember they told the lady to charge more for her bikinis, and that her name was not good (it reminded them of the Starbucks large drink). I noticed she kept her prices the same and didn't change her name like they suggested.
I would buy your products. Let me know when you get them going.
I had a friend who created a clothing brand called Demented Life. He started out by selling large car window stickers he designed (sold hundreds), then he began airbrushing on shirts, and sold a ton of them too. Unfortunately his name was to similar to his life, and drugs kept him from moving on with his ideas.

Good thoughts guys... gonna have to put my thinking cap on for that analysis of the calloused vs soft and curvy... and its funny that you mention the nipple...i told my artist that it had to go...that pic is just a first draft... also I told him that we need to have a silohette of a guy on there also... to create a little friction... (great minds think alike) plus we dont need the tagline on there three times...
I do appreciate all the ideas and comments... I just wish more guy wouldve taken the poll...

Here is another concept for you.

It's amazing how difficult it is to create a concept of something that is edgy enough for the brand yet doesn't cross the line of being TOO edgy.

Although maybe then you would need to offer bikinis for that ad to work!

LOL I just had an idea! What if you did the bikini lawn care business as a side project and you made bikinis for them! Would that get promotion?

Friction Clothing / Friction Lawn Care / Friction Bikini Lawn Care Team

You could set up a booth at a landscape trade show and have the gals hand out calendars that they signed and promoted your clothing line. Have pictures of them on lawn care equipment.
