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 »
Forget that cotton scent. Thanks to Le Slip Francais, men will soon have the option of wearing scented underwear that smells of musk and pears, France’s The Local reports.
The French undergarment company has raised more than 19,000 euros (about $25,000) on a crowdfunding site to launch its “Indomitable” brand, which promises afresh scent for up to 30 washes.
While wearers will still have to throw the underwear in the rinse cycle regularly — unlike the Wool & Prince shirt that can remain odor-free for up to 100 days without washing — the company promises that the microcapsules will spread the scent evenly throughout the underwear with each wash.

Your boyfriend’s Cocksox are very important to him. Just like your Wonderbra, he says, his Cocksox does the critical work of lifting and displaying his magnificent penis, for all the world to see. Echoing the words of Cocksox creative director Nadiah Kanawaty, Cocksox allow your boyfriend to go about his day with a “sexy secret” in his trousers. Of course, there was the disturbing incident at the playground, where your boyfriend’s Cocksox lead to some of the parents mistakenly believing he was inappropriately aroused. And so, yes, perhaps now he’s not allowed within 50 meters of a school, but it’s a small price to pay for a push-up bra for the penis. [Cocksox]
So here we are again. The ever-persisting problem of men who think baggy pants are still suh-weet. Recently, we heard about a high school which has taken to “Urkeling” offending students—making kids with too-baggy pants wear suspenders and forcing them to hike their trousers up high, Steve Urkel-style. Sadly, this invention you see before you—”Subs,” or garter belts for guys—isn’t here to eradicate baggy pants. Instead the “Subs” creator wanted to give men who like the down-low style some extra security. The belt goes around the waist and then clips onto a pant waistband so that the wearer can let his jeans hang low without them falling off. Well, that’s at least something, right?

The folks at Alexander McQueen are continuing the deceased designer’s legacy. One of the first new things to come out of the fashion house? A line of men’s underwear emblazoned with the signature McQueen skull print. (Apparently this collection will also have silk loungewear—classy.) But we wonder … what would Alexander McQueen have wanted as a fashion statement following his death? Is it kind of cheeky to put skulls and bones on boxers? (Bones, you know?) Then again, he might love the little joke.
What do you think of this look? Would you like your man to wear some skivvies like this? [Hint Mag] Keep reading »
Comparing a man’s package to a banana is nothing new. But now, this organ is getting linked to bananas for more than its physical shape. AussieBum, an Australian underwear company, has created an eco-friendly line of men’s underwear that is made from 27 percent banana fiber, 64 percent cotton, and nine percent Lycra. (AussieBum uses the bark weave from the banana plant to make the fiber.) The underwear is not only lightweight, but also absorbent. Now wearers won’t have to worry about salty balls in the summer — that sounds like a win-win for them and their lovers. [Reuters, AussieBum] Keep reading »
I don’t know why I’m so flabbergasted, and, dare I say, turned off, by these new padded crotch Calvin Klein jeans for men that promise “body-defining fit for an enhanced profile.” After all, we ladies have padded push-up bras, Spanx, and a variety of other undergarments that create the illusion of a body blessed by God and exercised to perfection. So, I guess it’s a little sexist of me to suggest men leave the smoke and mirrors to us … but that’s just the way I feel. I’m not alone here, right? I mean, do you guys agree with me? It’s just … it’s weird to think of a man wearing padded jeans. Like, what is he trying to hide in there, anyway? Or, not hide in there, as the case may be.

Shelling out the big bucks for lingerie isn’t that uncommon — this La Perla bra alone costs $238. But would you spend $250 on cashmere boxer briefs for your boyfriend? Last weekend, T, The New York Times Style Magazine featured this semi-sheer pair by designer Maurizio Amadei. They’re not really meant to be worn all the time, more like loungewear rather than everyday underwear. They look kind of cozy, and I think I could be enticed to buy a pair for a special occasion. Amelia says she would only buy them if they were on sale for $100. Well, I wasn’t able to find them at a discount online, in fact, I couldn’t find any cashmere men’s underwear. A gay friend advised that cashmere isn’t a popular fabric for underthings because it stretches out too much and wouldn’t flatter anyone, even David Beckham. “It would look like you’re wearing a diaper or borrowed your chubby bro’s skivvies,” he told us. A quick search did reveal a few pairs that are allegedly as soft as cashmere. See the packages after the jump. [WARNING: If you find a slight bulge offensive or NSFW, maybe you should wait to view until you're in the privacy of your own home.] Keep reading »
