Most women don’t regularly find themselves compelled to touch a dirty pair of men’s underwear (I don’t even want to think about those unidentified streaks and neither do you!), but perhaps that’s for the best. A new study published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology found that touching “sexually laden stimuli” (read as: men’s boxers), made women more willing to take big financial risks such as throwing money away on gambling or dropping major ducats on big-ticket items or just overspending on little ones. (Surprise! Heterosexual men behaved similarly after touching women’s bras.) Keep reading »
Both boxers and jeans are so comfortable for men. Why not combine the two? A Japanese company has made JeanPants, a pair of boxer-briefs printed to look like denim cutoffs, according to Styleite. Why any guy would want to look like he’s wearing denim cutoffs a la Jessica Simpson in “The Dukes Of Hazzard” is beyond me. If a guy whipped off his Levi’s to reveal denim-esque boxers underneath, I would laugh and laugh.
However, here is the real question: is this sartorial atrocity better or worse than a href=”http://www.thefrisky.com/tag/jeggings”>jeggings? [Japan Trend Shop via Styleite] Keep reading »
For the first decade of my sexually active life, every guy I encountered wore boxer shorts. The pattern varied—sometimes stripes, sometimes plaid, sometimes something surprising like rubber duckies—as did the elasticity of the waistband. But I could be sure that when a guy’s pants came off, I would find boxers underneath.
But over the last few years, I’ve noticed an evolution in men’s underwear choices. Keep reading »
I kind of want a boyfriend for a lot of reasons — like regular sex, foot rubs, companionship, someone to vacation with, etc. But I really, really want a boyfriend because then I could buy him these boxers and make him wear them year-round. Am I alone in thinking they’re funny yet totally sexy? Oh, Santa baby, indeed. [$18, Toddland] Keep reading »
Men in uniform know not everything that explodes in your underpants is a party. That’s why a British military accessories shop is selling blast-proof boxers made from knitted Kevlar. These powerful manties can stop shrapnel in its tracks and save a soldier from a painful groin injury.
But hey, don’t not forget our women in uniform! Kevlar thongs, anyone? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
Here is one of many theories I have about men: They all own and wear at least one pair of underwear that is so decrepit, so thread-barren, so holey, stained, and/or falling apart at the seams that they should have been thrown away years ago. My ex had a pair like this — they were boxer shorts and they had so many holes in the crotch that eventually they formed one giant hole, which his testicle would peek out of on those occasions when he would wear them sans pants while lounging on the couch. He had a bizarre attachment to these almost entirely disintegrated pair of boxers and I’m pretty sure he got a tiny thrill at how mortified and disgusted I was when he would wear them. Eventually, he had to toss them when the hole got so big that the boxer shorts turned into a skirt. Since him, I’ve met other men with the same fondness for that one pair of barely-there-boxers and I have finally decided it’s time to find out WHY men hold on to them. After the jump, guys share their thoughts on why, oh why, they still have that pair of underwear. Keep reading »
