I can't take any chances - my boxers have pictures of briefs on them.

Probably because briefs more closely resemble female underwear. I mean would you fellas be turned on by a girl in boxers? Probably not as much as the g string.

Regardless of type, if a woman is touching your underwear it has done its job.

The problem is getting them to touch them.  I tried at the local mall last weekend with no success.  Perhaps taking off the jacket and yelling, "HAPPY HAPPY FUN TIME NOW!!" was not a good way to start.

Anyone not wearing boxer briefs in this day and age has psychological issues.

Should one be wearing the underwear?

Because I see an alternate use for those t shirt guns they use at sporting events.

OK so that study sucks.  They asked them how much they would pay and they said more for the boxers than briefs?

" Men and women touched sexy clothing (bra or boxers), or saw them, or touched a t-shirt. Then they rated how much they would pay for various products, two of which were rewarding - wine and chocolates. Higher willingness to pay indicated a stronger desire, and thus more reward-seeking. Men indicated a higher willingness to pay, and therefore showed more reward-seeking, after both seeing and touching the bra, compared to the t-shirt. Women showed reward-seeking only after touching the boxers. Seeing was not enough.  "

I thought everyone knew that boxers cost more and that a bra costs more than a shirt.  I would assume girls like boxers more because they are worlds easier to take off.

Do they lump boxer-briefs in with briefs?

Do boxers or briefs made of money apply?

Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear, and when I do, it's usually something unusual.

Actually women in boxers is sexier then a g-string because having half of your underwear shoved in your sweaty ass-crack for hours on end isn't very sexy.

Sexiest is really when a women wear a long shirt that just goes pass the naughty bits so you're left wonder if any underwear in involved, a mystery that's begging to be solved.

My ex can't stand anything but boxers on a guy.  This came up when I mentioned switching to briefs for the support.  She actually makes an automatic assumption that a guy wearing briefs is a loser because to her they are childish, and is conscious and open about this.  I asked her if she thinks a scrotum hanging halfway to the knees is sexy.  Sexier than briefs apparently.

If grown men's clothing items make her automatically picture kids in their underwear, she may have other issues.

With boxers it's almost impossible to get the balled up socks to stay put. Keeps falling down your pants leg. That's embarrassing.

Well what impact does the fitness of the person wearing the boxers, briefs, boxer briefs, or whatever have?

Hot girls are hot. But in the case of your example, she's hot *despite* wearing those baggy, ugly boxers.

/Boxer briefs are superior to all other options for men, and are hotter on women too.
//Regular boxers not only look horrible and unflattering, but are even less comfortable than man-thongs, as they ride up everywhere and twist fully around easily.

Couldn't agree more about boxer briefs' superiority. As a man with thick thighs, I swear by them. I just took exception to the idea that boxers aren't sexy. On the right girl they most certainly can be, is all I'm saying. Sometimes it's a nice change of pace from anal floss. Not that thongs don't have excellent merits as well.

This.  I used to soley wear boxers but the rubbing and flopping around finally got to me and went to the boxer brief and it's worlds better than boxers.

As a young male in the heart of the 90's I find a gal in a nice pair of boxers hotter than some skank in a g-string.  It takes me back to those glorious college days when the gals ran around the dorms in the morning before getting prepped for the day.  They looked better natural than they did after they pancaked their faces.


/The first warm day of the year on campus was even better.

Wore boxers in my actively workin' it years for the same reason.

Now, having married and childrended, I ended up getting a vasectomy. Disdained the cup, thought that was stupid.

Yea, no.

Took my lunch hour my first day back at work heading to Target for briefs - the walking and the swinging and the shaking was like little leprechauns kicking my nuts everytime I walked.

Still wearing them. Wife don't care.

Sexy underwear is for entertainment purposes only. If you get that level of dress and still can't seal the deal, you have bigger problems than choice of lingerie.
