I wear briefs. I've tried boxers, and it resulted in bunched-up nuts, and lots of flopping. :eek: No thank you.

Curious fact. My father wore boxers all his life. I didn't like them, but didn't even know till I was in HS that briefs existed and, since then have never put on boxers, same reason as HeyHomie. But my two sons wear only boxers! I don't understand it.

Vaires. Most of the time, cotton boxers. In the gym, polyester/lycra boxer-briefs.

Boxers since way back. I like floppin around.

A buddy answered "both". I figured he meant boxer-briefs, but nope. He wears briefs "for support" and boxers over "for style". He's a weirdo, and after hearing this, I told him so.

When I wear anything, it's boxers. I don't care much one way or the other, except I hate tighty-whiteys, so since my wife prefers boxers if I'm going to wear underwear, that's what she buys me.

I had a girlfriend who called boxers "old man underwear" and wanted me to wear those tiny Euro-style nutsacks because she liked the way the junk hung in them. I obliged her.

I only wear undies for work, which I guess doesn't make much sense since I'm in an office, but I consider it part of my work "outfit". The rest of my life, I go free-ballin'.

I was a died-in-the-wool briefs guy until I started dating my current girlfriend. She likes being able to reach in there and have room to rustle around a bit.

"Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear underwear and when I do it's usually something unusual."

I prefer boxers... if only because if I need to run the garbage out to the curb, I can easily claim they're shorts.

Tighty-whities all the way. The few times I've tried boxers it feels exactly like the times I've worn sweatpants over top of shorts. Too bulky and too floppy. Besides, state law requires loads above a certain standard size and weight be restrained during transit.

Usually boxers, because my wife prefers them. I have boxer-briefs for when I'm going to bike a long way, or walk around outdoors for hours on end when it's 90 degrees, or any similar situation where my in-betweenus needs to have help not chafing.

Boxer Briefs. For awhile in my early 30's <sob> I was really into biking and they were the only things that were comfortable with my legs being as developed as they were. Well...I didn't like briefs, and boxers constricted around the legs.

Mid rise bikini briefs. Thinner and much lighter than regular briefs and no wide elastic waist band. They are getting hard to find too, Hanes and Jockey no longer make them. I found a store brand that still makes them and during a recent sale, stocked up on enough to last for a long time.

Primarily tighty-whities for reasons of OP and others who are doing so.

However, mine are getting to the point that they need to be thrown out (or so my wife tells me, this isn't a choice of my own, I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about here!) and, rather than buy more tighty-whities to replace them like I often do, I figured I'd give the boxers that I've accumulated (most are ones my wife bought me) a try. Not really used to them, but also not as averse to them as I'd like, so I might spend the next few decades in boxers once the briefs are all gone.

Bikinis. Briefs (aka jockey shorts, tighty whities) are like grandma panties except for guys. Boxers are what my great-granddad probably wore under his overalls and suspenders.

For me it's briefs, I don't get the boxers things, and frankly I am only average "down there" so I can't see how well endowded men do it

I think it's a generational thing. In the late 80s briefs went out of fashion and boxers came in and the young started wearing them. In the late 70s when I was in high school no kid wore boxers. Now most teens where boxers. It probably is just what you get used to.

Plus the fashion dictates that if you wear your pants low so you can see the underwear you wear boxers with low fitting pants not briefs

Like in the 70s I'd hear the girls talking and it was big not to wear a bra back then. And there was always the talk about "slutty girls" not wearing them versus the "liberated girls" not wearing them.

Briefs are too constricting, I would think the bigger you are the more constricting they are. If I get "excited", it winds up sticking out of my waistband, that's uncomfortable.

Boxer-briefs. Boxers tend to bunch up in between my balls and leg, on my gooch, and get sweaty down my ass crack. This leads to a hell of a lot of chafing, and briefs are for little boys and old men!
Boxer briefs stay put and don't look odd, so it's all good.

(if you don't think briefs are bad, just wondering - do you wear Speedo's at the beach/pool?)

Boxers for a very long time, now. I switched when I was still in the military. I used to wear briefs, but the elastic chafed too much, what with all the marching and bullshit.

Boxer-briefs almost exclusively. A few pairs of briefs for middle of summer heat, and a couple pairs of boxers that I wore while recovering from some below the waist surgery (but I really don't care for them).

My choice too. Perhaps their increasing scarcity is a result of America's increasing obesity. In any case regular briefs are a second choice, boxers never.

Somewhat on topic... I'm female, and wear what could be considered a female version of boxer-briefs. They're cotton knit, and have actual legs on them. I used to sneer at such things, but I've found that they're excellent for preventing heat rash in the area where my legs join my crotch, and if I do develop heat rash, then the boxers don't aggravate the rash. I imagine that men would find the same thing applies to them.

Also, men look best in boxer-briefs, IMO. Not that I encounter a lot of men IRL in boxer-briefs, but a careful study of the literature has helped me to form an opinion on this subject.

Please, please tell me who makes these and where I can buy them. I've been looking for exactly that for some time now.

Briefs. I'm a creature of habit and have worn them all my life. I've never worn a pair of boxers, and can't imagine my junk constantly sliding around. I need the support - I fear that if I wore boxers, I'd sit down and wind up crushing a testicle. The only exception to briefs is the jock straps I bought for exercise.

I started wearing boxers when we had kids, and it was apparent that I'd be up and wandering about the house a good bit during the night. A bit more dignified.

Really those are trunks, not boxer briefs. Boxer briefs have longer legs.

I wear low rise briefs.

Funny, I get bunched nuts and underwear up my ass when I wear briefs. No flopping though, I have to give you that.

I dunno why, actually. When I was a kid I did briefs. Then I switched in high school to boxers. I only wore a jock for sports. Then in college, I realized that I only needed that kind of support for competition. And I was a wrestler :)

For me, I think it's similar to when as a kid you don't have as much control over your body, so you end up hitting your funny bone from time to time and getting whacked in the balls. I can't remember when either of those things happened to me last. Likewise, I haven't needed the support from briefs since then, either.

Notice that the leg of the panty doesn't fit snugly against the leg of the wearer, as the first pair does. For even more horror, I offer the Granny Girdle (http://roamans.com/clothing/Rago-extra-long-leg-shaper.aspx?PfId=19053&DeptId=14334&ProductTypeId=1&PurchaseType=0), with the split crotch (which is laughable, I don't know anyone who can pee through a split crotch, though I know several women who TRY...and fail) and the detachable garters.

If you give me the eek face again, I shall be forced to show you some truly frightening photos and illustrations of women's clothing. I HAVE THE MUSEUM OF MENSTRUATION BOOKMARKED, and I'm not afraid to use it.

Dunno about the US army, but the Canadian army issues you a uniform - jacket, boots, pants, undershirt, beret, ... and even army-issue gitch. They are boxers, and those were the first pair I've ever owned. (And yes, they were camo-green (no camo pattern, though) like most of the rest of the uniform) I was curious why army issue gitch is boxers not briefs, but I guess you pointed out why.

I was only in the Forces for six months and, upon my release, I had to give back a lot of the uniform, except that which touched my skin. So I got to keep the beret, undershirt ... and gitch.

Lynn Bodoni
11-15-2009, 02:32 AM
You know this why?! I know this because I was asked about such girdles when I sold women's clothing. Women would want the girdles with flaps in them because they hated to remove them in order to pee, and told me so. And I knew that they tried, and failed, to pee through the flaps because I could, ummm, smell the failure. I did not witness them actually failing at it. I didn't want to, either.

I wore briefs when I was a boy, and then again when I got all old and busted and had a varicocele on one of my balls that made wearing boxers cripplingly painful.

Surgical intervention allowed me to wear my skivvies of choice again, thank all the stars in heaven.

Every man in my life had worn briefs, so I was a bit surprised to find the current Mr. Divine wearing boxers. I still think they look like "old man drawers", but I'm used to it now. He said he's always been a boxers man, briefs only if he's doing something that requires more support.

But, I was also startled to find that his equipment rides significantly "lower" than my previous experience has been, and it makes me wonder if that is from the lack of support over the years (he is 51), similar to the way women's breasts need support. Have any of you more mature gentlemen had similar experiences?

39 here.

Since I've had my vasectomy, I've found that my nuts hang significantly lower. I don't know if it's a 1:1 correlation, if it's just age, or if it's confirmation bias, but there you have it.
