This is somehow a topic that has bypassed the public consciousness. I think there have been actual studies done on the wide gamut of women’s undergarments, but for guys that’s just not the case. So, I figure because there’s nothing really coming to mind to write about right now, I figure I’d run through a quick list of things
No Man Likes to Go Commando
I think the phrase was made immortal by ‘Friends’, but basically the act of ‘going commando’ is to wear pants without any underwear. This is nonsense. You’re a goddamned madman if you do this. No man wears pants without some sort of protective layer. The chafing alone…the horrors.
Guys Have Date Underwear Too
Every woman has game day lingerie. If someone is gonna see you in your skivvies, you want to make sure that you have your best stuff on. Women have the push-up bra, men have the boxer brief. It makes every guy seem a little slimmer, and it gives some definition to your junk. Let’s be honest, you don’t want to be be caught in your novelty boxers. Yes, every guy has a pair of stupid boxers, we got them as a gag gift, but hey, it’s a pair of underwear, you use it.
There is an Ideal Number of Underwear
I’m not going to lie, back in college, I used to use my clean underwear as a counter system as to when I needed to do laundry. Now that I’m supposedly a responsible adult, I definitely don’t do that anymore (on purpose). There’s an ideal number of pairs of underpants, and I’m pretty sure it’s somewhere between 15-20 pairs.
Guys Hate Throwing Away Underwear
This is the most true thing in this entire list. I know guys, myself included, who have kept pairs of boxers way beyond their expiration date. Getting rid of a pair of underwear is kind of like losing an old friend, you’ve been through a lot, but at the end of the day, you know that your time is up. Also, it’s just so weird throwing a pair of underwear in the garbage (not to mention a trash chute).
