When I was growing up, boxers were for old men and nerds. Normal guys wore briefs.\
I still do. \
Am I hopelessly behind the times? Do college boys now wear boxers? Guys in their 20s and 30s? What do YOU wear?\
What do you fantasize about seeing cute guys wearing?
Alarmed about Skivvies
I''m all for briefs--but I''m in my late 30''s. I love undressing a guy and seeing his package bulging in something comfortably snug--and a nice ass in tight briefs? Can''t be beat. Boxers just don''t do it for me. (Of course, the goal is what''s under but part of the fun is getting there.)\
Oh--and guys? Solids or stripes. Ginch-Gonch underoos make you look like you''re developmentally retarded.
I hate boxers with the passion of a thousand suns!
I''m 27, and I wear briefs - boxers could never give me the support I like. Most guys my age seem to wear boxers, though.
My cock is big enough that I require boxer briefs. Support is important when you''re hung.
Both, but primarily briefs because they''re more supportive and I don''t get as many spontaneous erections.
if you have any kind of ass At All, you have to wear briefs.
NO Boxers Zone
I wear briefs with a pair of boxers rolled up and stuck in the front of them.
Boxers. I hate briefs.
I need low rise briefs b/c of the shape of my body.\
I hate calling them ''bikinis.''
It''s ''Boxers or Briefs'', OP - not ''Briefs or Boxers''.
Briefs are my one sicko, perverted fetish. White briefs with colorful waistband...on a guy that looks like Bob Seegar circa 1975 in the backseat of a ''69 Cougar. It''s my life''s dream.
Boxers just look stupid, and they bunch up under jeans (unless you wear extra baggy jeans that hang halfway down your ass, which looks even more stupid).\
Real men wear briefs.\
Boxers are fugly and completely unsexy.
Try it for a week - you''ll never go back.
Boxer briefs are best, R15
Underwear was designed for a reason, R16. It is stupid not to wear it. You end up with no support, and skid marks on your pants.
It is not stupid to forgo underwear (not everyone leaves skids r18). That said, underwear choice is purely a matter of taste. I prefer to wear briefs when I''m in work clothes (boners show through slacks a bit too obviously) and nothing when I''m casual. A hottie is a hottie in boxers or briefs and I''m happy to appreciate a fine looking fellow in either.
Jesus Christ, r18, why not try wiping your asshole after you shit?
R21, most people are going to have skidmarks no matter how hard they try
Boxer briefs of course.
Boxer briefs, in particular black Calvin Klein boxer briefs, are the hottest underwear.\
That''s the reason it is the underwear of choice for many male celebrity hunks.
What bullshit, r22. You must be a filthy cunt. If you find it so damn hard to clean feces from your asscrack maybe you should invest in baby wipes and take a long hard look at your diet.
I don''t think you get it, R21.
Only little boys and gays who think they''re hot wear briefs.
Thongs and g-string are the fucking shit.
I think briefs are crazy sexy, especially on a mature guy and especially if they are a color other than white. I don't wear traditional briefs though, I wear black or dark blue boxer briefs. I like the support of a brief but I don't like the feeling of the leg openings of a brief riding high into my inner crotch. I sleep in baggy boxers.
I never go commando because I don't like the feeling of my genitals bouncing around unsupported. Anyone who claims that going commando leads to skidmarks needs to ask their mother to potty-train them again. Who shits after to their morning shower or bath anyway? Not me! My crack is as clean when I go to bed as it is when I get out of the shower, so even my jeans would be clean if I skipped underwear.
After you shit, you need to get in your shower and irrigate your hole with a forceful jet.
If you're not at home iand and a shower is not handy, you just need to scoot around the floor like a Bassett hound.
Dear Lord in Heaven!
Briefs. Quality has gone down the tubes, the elastic gives out so quickly.Hey, what're you sayin', I got a big fat ass? I do, actually, but jeez, have a heart, willya'? I'm sensitive.
Not that I stare at young guys in the locker room but I have noticed that the boxer craze seems to be ending and more men are switching to briefs or trunks.
Banana Republic has pretty decent boxer briefs
OP, I'm 44. Yes, you are behind the times. I grew up wearing briefs, which is probably why I associate them with immaturity and years gone by, especially white briefs. I don't think I've worn briefs in 20+ years.
I've worn boxer briefs, trunks and square-cut underwear for years. I also have a few pairs of boxers for lounging around the house. They are not "old man" boxers, they're cut very close to the body and come in modern prints and colors. They don't look anything like what an "old man" would wear, nor do they look old-fashioned.
Even if you don't leave skidmarks, you are seriously clueless if you think wiping shit off of your ass with dry toilet paper leaves you clean enough to forgo underwear. I hope you at least wash you pants every time you wear them.
I pride myself on NEVER making skid marks in my drawers.
We had a bidet when I was growing up and I learned to value of water irrigation for skidmark prevention.
r14, r17, r23 - you're all Americans right?
"Boxer briefs" is an old American term. We moved on.
The most popular underwear besides briefs are short, fitted trunks. Undergear has over 150 models now, less than 30 for "boxer briefs".
boxers are HORRIBLE if you have any kind of ass at all. skinny twinks must love them.
In a recent New York Daily News article, an interesting statistic was given: 40% of men’s underwear sales in 2010 were for boxer briefs. Less than 30% were for the traditional boxer.
This is quite a shift. Boxer briefs have been gaining, but the traditional brief has always held the top spot. So, why the change? I think women have had a lot to do with this. We simply like men in boxer briefs over tighty whities.
From a practical perspective, men probably feel it’s more acceptable to walk around in their boxer briefs rather than just briefs, and boxer briefs tend to work a little better under jeans anyway. But whatever they buy, I’m just glad they are back and buying. 2009 was a tough retail year for men’s underwear – they just weren’t buying. But 2010 was strong, ending with a 10.7% increase. 2011 has also started off with a bang. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.
Briefs are far sexier than boxers, but most of my generation favors boxers. I'll continue to wear briefs because I like the support.
Going commando, on the other hand, is an active turn-off to me. It removes the suspense of 'gift unwrapping'.
OP, what decade have you beamed in from, the 1950'S? Since at least the late 80's, briefs have been out of fashion, thanks to the mainstream anti-tighty whitey stigma. And since the mid 90's boxer briefs have been king among young males.
I've started to think that my boxers look stupid with my assless chaps.
How about just wearing what you like to wear? Do you really need a national poll to tell you what to wear? Are you worried that the cool kids won't like your underwear? That the heterosexist world will judge you as unworthy of your rights because of what underwear you wear?
I'm always disappointed when I hook up with a guy and find there's no underwear under the pants. I actually like grabbing a handful of ass while making out and I get really turned on if I feel brief lines. If they're wearing boxers then I just get them nkd fast cuz boxers kill my boner.
no, ''most people'' don't have skid marks. In fact, I've never been with a guy who had skid marks on his underwear and if I saw one you can believe I would hightail it out of there pronto. geez. it's not that difficult to figure out how to clean your ass.
[quote]most people are going to have skidmarks no matter how hard they try
Not if they wash their fucking ass. How difficult is it to get off the toilet and plop your ass on the side of the bathtub and use the shower head + a finger for 10 secs? Is that little bit of effort too damn exhausting to be perfectly clean for the rest of the day? Unless you have a scat fetish, why would you want to walk around all day with shit stuck to your body?
The average American guy in his 20s and 30s is going to be wearing boxer briefs or boxers, almost none of them wear briefs.
r47 is correct. Skid marks happen because there are feces squeezed between the sphincter muscle. If there's shit on the paper when you wipe, more wiping isn't enough. You'd be much better off spending your time doing as 47 says.
"hightail it out of there pronto"? How the hell old are you?
Will you people stop obsessing and talking about skid marks? Your gross obsession is unseemly.
Skid marks are a cry for help!
Back to the original 'porpoise' of this thread... I wear all types boxers, boxer briefs, even tighty whiteies ... but no thongs, those are for whores.
As far as the other subject, get some babi wipes for the last wipes, just to be sure!
Boxer briefs or bust, bro
I detest Barbara Boxer.
only boxer briefs, bro
I once went to a bar in Virginia called "Skid Marks."
Near the Navy base. Popular. This was in the '80s.
Poops are people too!
Just how cavernous is your hole that it sucks in your pants and leaves skidmarks? Sheesh.
Boxer briefs are what normal people wear. Not old people.
no tighty whities
Armani boxer briefs
Dress pants - boxers.
Jeans - commando
Shorts and working out - briefs.
It's incredible there are so many people here who don't seem to be able to wipe their asses.
Old people wear briefs.
i cant wear boxers regularly for a couple of reasons. if i am dressed up and wearing a white t shirt underneath, i like to tuck my dress shirt into my tighty whities. and if i wear boxers, there is no doubt i will get a raging erection from the constant movement. at least in other types of underwear my dick is not swinging all over the place. i don't get how guys can walk around in boxers all day all the time.
Shkid marksh are dangeroush!
Thongs or g-strings. Always. So comfortable.
Boxer briefs only.
Can somebody suggest some AFFORDABLE boxer briefs where the legs don't rise? I've bought Haynes "No Rise" boxer briefs, but sure enough they do.
R75 If you want a boxerbrief that doesn't ride up then find a brand that has a small percentage of spandex. Go to Century 21 or Filene's and get a decent brand...stay away from the cheapies. You get what you pay for.
R76, you are so right... the spandex really helps with boxer briefs. I was out shopping around the holidays, stopped in a Jockey store because of the big "everything on sale sign". Found two pair of boxer briefs i thought looked hot. They are so comfortable, hold the boys nicely in a pouch, wrap around my ass nicely and don't ride up.
I feel so sexy in them... must go back and buy more.
I'm 45 and OP sounds ancient.
Norms where boxers while fags where briefs.
r80 Writing from your special needs class?
skid marks on boxers are hawt
R21 not just a matter of taste. For me practicality, as I have low hangers. It's briefs or snug boxer briefs or I have a headache by lunchtime.
God bless America
Land that I love
Stand beside her
And guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
God bless America, My home sweet home
Personally, as a woman, and not even a man-consuming woman (that is, a lesbian), I feel boxer-briefs (or tight boxers) are the best look for men. I find them hot.
I do not know how anyone can actually wear a thong. gross
r42, you're a little off in your timing. I graduated from high school in 1992, saw guys in underwear every other school day in the locker room, and briefs were still in. Only one of my classmates wore boxers, silk ones, and he was made fun of often.
I went to school in New York too, the center of the universe.
Is it true that the smaller/tighter your underwear, the fewer wrinkles you'll have on the back and sides of your ass?
R87, you're an idiot for conflating conformity-driven high school lockerroom mentality with the prevailing fashions of the day.
I graduated college in 1992 and white briefs were definitely long out of style. I started having sex with guys in college and I don't think I ever hooked up with a guy who wore tighty whiteys. You saw lots of solid colored briefs and plaid/patterned boxers in those days. Stoners and art majors wore boxers a lot. They were "ironic" and different. They soon became ubiquitous. I don't remember boxer briefs until after college, mid-90s, but they've been the prevailing style ever since.
Thongs and g-strings.
Briefs - they reveal more body so obviously guys look hotter in them
Boys in college seem to be wearing a lot of American Eagle boxer briefs.
Yep, A&E boxer briefs are very popular. They look fairly nice and have a nice athletic fit. They come in many colors, and overall have a very masculine athletic look.
For those who are willing to spend more, Under Armour boxer briefs are very popular. UA boxerjocks get superior ratings and reviews. Athletes have definitely made UA the hot underwear brand.
Even women make fun of briefs as "tighty whities" or "man panties/manties," so no wonder men today dare not wear them. Briefs also are associated with feminine or older dudes, so that makes them even more unpopular.
[quote]I've started to think that my boxers look stupid with my assless chaps.
R43, [italic][bold]all[/bold][/italic] chaps are assless by definition; otherwise they are called "pants." The good news is that you can stop worrying about your wardrobe choices making you look stupid; the bad news is that your command of the English language is what is really making you look like a twit.
[quote]When I was growing up, boxers were for old men and nerds. Normal guys wore briefs. I still do. Am I hopelessly behind the times?
It's more a matter of you still being extremely immature--you group "normal guys" according to what kind of clothes they wear.
[quote]I went to school in New York too, the center of the universe.
New York is the center of New York.
When did you grow up?
r90, what was your verbal score on the SAT? Your reading comprehension could use some work. Nowhere in my post do I mention white briefs. I simply said briefs, as in the cut or style.
You are correct at this time colored and patterned briefs were the common style.
"Even women make fun of briefs as "tighty whities"
So women with their oversized, cottage cheese asses crammed into a thong are making fun of men's underwear choices?
who cares who makes fun of them, I will only wear briefs and always will.
what if you have a really hairy anus?
Which has probably been said 20 times already
Blue collar workers wear briefs, white collar workers wear boxers, generally.
Boxer briefs, bro
Boxer Briefs only. Under Armour
boxer briefs only.
I think it's a way for guys to feel like they're 'going commando' but avoid getting skid marks on their pants.
like em all myself
Isn't tight brief bad for your ball sacks to regulate the testicles temperature?
they say a lower sperm count is more commen with guys who wear briefs. But if you aren't looking for kiddies who cares?
Judging so many gay men here wearing tight briefs, I finally got an explanation why most gays have high-pitch girly voice.
In America, briefs have been out of style or considered uncool since the early 90's. Not since Risky Business, have they been considered okay for men under 80 to wear.
Grey boxer briefs are the best
r119 Wash and line dry 'em, then they won't be grey anymore.
After watching "It Could Be Worse" on Hulu, it seems that Wesley Taylor probably always wears briefs. He looks totally hot in his briefs. I think Gideon Glick was also wearing briefs. I was actually impressed with that show. And with Wesley in his briefs.
