Well, seeing as I am the Underwear Prophet, let’s talk a little bit about men’s underwear.
First off, add some comments, what do you wear and why? What do you like to see yo man in?
I think it’s pretty obvious what I wear, from the picture hahaha But, let’s weigh in here on the choices. There are, in fact, a wide array of underwear options for men. Boxers, briefs (tighty whities and colored briefs), boxer briefs (longer briefs), trunks (between briefs and boxer briefs, usually made with man made fabric), jockstraps (straped around the butt cheeks, but bare in the back), thongs, g-strings (fabric going between the butt cheeks), bikini briefs (smallest of the briefs), full cut briefs (usually called standard briefs, kind of the old fashioned ones, usually called tighty whities), sport briefs (not really sure what these are, it seems that different companies have different definitions), long johns (waist to ankle), union suits (one-piece from neck to ankles, the kind Santa probably wears ) and the list goes on and on. The fact is, there just might be more underwear options for men, than there are for women.
As you can see, there are many styles, colors, and probably flavors to suit everyone’s needs. Of course, there are some that marketed mostly to men in the gay community. Underwear is probably one of the biggest fetishes, maybe for straight and gay men. But, it’s not as though everyone wears the ‘special’ ones on a regular basis.
Do men really care and why? If a single man says he doesn’t care, then he’s lying. The truth is, most women prefer to see a man wearing boxers or at the very least, boxer briefs. But, let’s be honest, novelty boxers after university/college are not really what you want to be wearing. Most men who wear boxers say that they like the freedom that they feel, I think the feminine influence has more to do with that then the freedom (in my opinion). The truth is, loose-ish briefs are probably the most comfortable to wear, but, not the most flattering. Ladies, if your man is wearing boxer briefs, it’s probably because he is secretly wishes he was wearing briefs, at heart ,and the boxer briefs are a good compromise for both of you. I personally hate boxers and boxer briefs because I used to be a runner/mountain biker and my thighs are pretty big. Extra material on my thighs is just not comfortable for me and damn, it just gets so hot in the summer. Trunks are also a good choice because they fabric is usually pretty cool and breathable and they hold the package well. But, I discovered Banana Republic pima briefs and they are by far the most comfortable underwear I have EVER worn. I have gone through stages of wearing every kind of underwear except thongs and g-strings(which, in my opinion, should be for the ladies~just my thinking, that’s all, I don’t want to offend any thong wearers out there). In truth, I don’t even know how they can find that underwear comfortable, but who am I to judge. Jockstraps, well, I think they’re good for the purpose they were meant for.
Overall, I believe every man should own at least a one or two pairs of the standards: boxers, briefs, boxer briefs, trunks. There are even some good bikini briefs out there that are good, if you’re a low waisted jean wearer. Check out the white pair I added.
Ladies, if you love your man and tell him that you only want him wearing one kind of underwear, you are not really taking into consideration that sometimes, certain underwear is just not comfortable. Aren’t there times that you wish you could wear a pair of cull cotton underwear? Our testicles, in fact, need a variety of conditions to perform under ideal circumstances. The concept that briefs lowers sperm count has been proven to be a myth, unless wearing tight tight briefs ALL the time. But, that’s not even comfortable for the man, to begin with. There are many doctors now who believe a combination of both is best as both provide different needs for a man’s testees. A side note, since the increasing use of boxers, sperm counts have actually gone down in the U.S. However, a man should never wear tight briefs, it’s just bad in every way. A man should also never wear boxers when exercising or playing sports, the testees need support during these times or serious injuries can happen.
So, there you have it. A little information to do with what you choose. But, guys, stick to a variety of the 4 standard types these days, there are good reasons to wear them all. It’s not just who sees them, that is important. Shocking as that sounds.
**I took these pics from a variety of sources from the internet, I apologise in advance if that is a problem. Just let me know, and I will take them off 🙂 The pics, that is, not my underwear haha
