Sexy Male Underwear
Boxers or briefs?
Boxers or briefs? A question most women will have to face sooner or later. Let's face it, unless your partner is a "new man" or a "metro"... he will be using the underwear mommy bought him until it is falling apart with tears and holes!
At some point in the line of your relationship it becomes YOUR task to choose his underwear. This happens sooner if you are fed up of seeing "Rudolph the red nosed reindeer" every time he takes his jeans off, or later if the last girlfriend had some taste and forced him to wear CK or DKNY undies. In any event, it will be up to you to keep your Romeo looking sexy.
The most obvious thing to do, before buying him underwear, is to ask him what he likes, as it might not be the same as what he is currently wearing. Some men, are very traditional and will not wear anything but their favourite type of undies; while others, more adventurous, will vary their undies according to the activity they are planning and the clothes they are going to wear. However, if your man goes for leopard print briefs, pretend you didn't hear him... or even better, look for another man!

Tommy Hilfiger Boxer shorts
Most of us are familiar with the all-around-elastic shorts. They have the advantage of offering completely free leg movement. I am a fan of boxer shorts because you can find them in all variety of styles, materials, prints and designs to fit best your Romeo.
I believe they are the most flattering style of underwear. Most boxer shorts have an opening in the front. The opening can be closed with a button or left alone as the design allows for the material to overlap and fully cover the opening.
- In an emergency if the guy has to run away wearing only his undies, at least they can pass as shorts.
- They hide quite a large area so there is room for imagination.
- They have plenty of room for nature's works.
The Jockey-style briefs appeared in the late 1930s. Personally, I cannot think about briefs without thinking about Homer Simpson! But having a quick look at the latest trends it appears that briefs are not that "bad" at all anymore. Brands like CK, DKNY, 2exist and Cin2 have made briefs fashionable and I must admit -with effort- sexy.
The classic brief is an underwear staple. If you're looking for the perfect brief to stock up on, start buying the 100% cotton essential that's super soft and easy to wear.
The original boxer briefs were made popular by Calvin Klein, with his impossible-to-miss advertising campaign with massive billboards with pictures of Mark Wahlberg in just a pair of boxer briefs.
Boxer-briefs are longer than regular briefs, but are fitted so men feel more comfortable: A compromise between boxers and briefs. They are mostly worn by the sporty man as they offer good support but look sexy. They look great in well built bodies.

My favourite material for men's underwear is silk. I think they offer style and luxury as they have a seductive quality. Any man who wants to attract attention with style and sensual details wants to slip into silk, a fun and sexy alternative to traditional cotton underwear.
You can find silk underwear in various designs such as boxer shorts, boxer briefs, bikini briefs, thongs, and G-strings.
G-String or Thong Underwear
Named after the G string on a guitar, it is a type of thong with a very minimal amount of fabric and a string-like appearance.
But, who actually wears these besides strippers? Does anyone actually know a guy who owns one of these? Well I actually know one... and I felt sorry for him. It was his birthday and his wife had the brilliant idea of offering him a swimming pool party. As a present along with the birthday cake she brought a red thong. Obviously everybody cheered for him to wear it, which he did to have a dip in the pool. I cannot remember which was redder, his face or his bottom cheeks ! So please, if you are going to offer one of these to the man in your life... do it in private!
The jockstrap was invented in 1874 in Chicago. They are also known as athletic supporter or jock. It is a designed to be used for playing sports. It has a wide elastic waistband that wraps around the bottom area and a protective pouch in the front can be fitted to hold an impact resistant cup to protect the men from sport related injury.
The Calvin Klein Tech Active Jock Strap, from the Calvin Klein Tech Active underwear collection, is a low-rise jock strap with a two-strap back made from a moisture-wicking stretch microfiber. With supreme support, this has a minimal design for all your gym, sports. From 24$
If you are Scottish or have Scottish ancestors, wearing nothing but a kilt and a smile can also be an option. This can be extremely sexy. Most of my girlfriends find it a turn on to speculate whether a guy is wearing anything under his kilt and every little glimpse under it seems to bring them into a frenzy!
This is actually the most difficult part about buying underwear for your other half. Sizes vary from country to country and from brand to brand. Also because of the different styles in pants today, sizing varies according to cut and designer. To make sure that the underwear fits the way it should and that you he will be as comfortable as possible, take a few minutes to take some measurements and find the right size for him. You'll need a soft tape measure, and believe me... this can be fun!
