I was inspired to write this post because of an article in a local newspaper about an upcoming reality comedy game show, Kenny vs. Spenny, where the two combatants debate the principles of boxers and briefs.
Here’s some of what Kenny said
“Spencer’s more into boxers. He likes tough hairy guys with gloves. Personally I’m into briefs – I can’t wear boxers because my junk is too heavy and I need additional support. It’s almost a medical thing .. I didn’t know boxers existed. Underwear is all kinds of ridiculous. Everything should be based on camoflage. That’s why my underwear is all brown.”
“Also forget about boxers. We’re from Canada – it’s cold here. All of your clothes need to be tight fitting. It’s almost unpatriotic to wear boxer shorts…. it’s the definition of uncool”
“I wear boxer briefs so I get the best of both worlds. If you wear old school boxers everything just hangs too loose, nothing is really absorbing – it’s just not nice and snug. I wear form fitting, aesthetic looking boxer briefs. Men don’t wear briefs … especially hairy men. Briefs look terrible. Homer Simpson wears briefs. My dad wore briefs, but at least he wore the French kind. …I associate briefs with your grandfather or a gawky teenager.”
Guys and gals, what do you like? For those guys who have too much junk in front like Kenny<g> and need the extra support, would some of the fancy tighty whiteys do it for you? I know that not all men wear underwear and that at times they like to go commando. I see you on the street and I can tell if you dress right or left.<g> Do you do this for effect or just because you like to hang loose? Do boxers not give you enough freedom? Do you have to put temptation in our way even outdoors? Some of you may ask why my eyes are below the waist when I look at strange men on the street, and that’s an excellent question for which I don’t have a ready answer. 😀
I did some research and here are the results –
Boxers: Firefighters, cops and professional men like boxers – 50 % of them. Boxers are also worn by men 60 years and older or much younger guys. However, go light on pictures of your mother or Homer Simpson on your underwear. 🙂
Tighty whiteys are worn by many younger men but these are not Fruit of the Loom tighty whiteys, they’re Calvin’s.
Thong underwear – men who don’t want any panty lines favour this look. 😀 Does your man wear a thong?
Commando – I love it, but guys be careful when you pull up that zipper.
After all of this work I would like you to vote for your favourite men’s underwear. Will it be boxers, briefs, boxer briefs, thongs, no underwear i.e. commando, or something in between? The guy in this picture is wearing none of the underwear being debated although he could be wearing the current Calvins – I just thought he looked great. <g>
