Re: Poll: boxers or briefs? (thread rating: PG-13)

I answered boxers, because I wear those most often. However, I do have a couple pair of boxer-briefs... they are only worn in cooler weather, since I sweat more "down there" in warmer weather. Boxers are much cooler during warm weather in the South.

Since I walk with a cane, if a small child starts getting curious about it in public, I tell them it's because I didn't listen to my parents.

Trunks (aka boxer-briefs).

They are very comfortable to wear.

I wear boxer briefs. You get the full support of a brief, but a little more leg room with the boxer part of it.
Hubby has mostly boxer-briefs, a few briefs, not really any “real” boxers. I like the boxer-briefs. Very sexy.

Of course, I wouldn’t minded seeing him in some of those leather “briefs” from “300.” Oh my!

I haven't seen that one. Would that type of undies be leather-loincloth-like, as Tarzan's?

It is indeed. But if life was fair it'd propably be a bit boring. No challenges and no room for improvement.
(and no, "room for improvement" has nothing whatsoever to do with male underwear )

I went with boxers and neither, since sometimes I go commando. The rest of the time, it's boxers.

Briefs, although recently certain aspects of my...uh, frame have made wearing my current stock slightly less comfortable.

BUT I'LL BE DAMNED IF I'M GOING TO RELOAD OVER SOME EVEN NOT SO SLIGHT PRESSURE!!!!

Thanks for the good thoughts. By the way, is that a bonafide saying or is it Bavarian in the sense that Banacek's bon mots are genuinely Polish!!!

naaah, it's a genuine Native Bavarian proverbial phrase



note to Mods:
I know we shouldn't revive dead threads but I'd like to give a few newbies a chance to add their 2 cents and I still need to count the boxerbrief votes that don't show in the initial poll as I hadn't been aware of their existence when I started the thread. So please don't lock it just yet.

Man, it's like Bush v. Gore in 2000. This is tense.
