Survey: Boxers or Briefs? The Great Underwear Debate

It’s an age-old question; suffice to say you probably encountered it many times already. Regardless, Adam4Adam readers, which one are you: a briefs guy, a commando guy, or a boxers kind of guy? 

Some gay men confess they prefer briefs because they think it’s sexier and because wearing boxers with jeans is “terrible” while others beg to disagree and say that they love boxers because they are “good for easy access” and because they “provide you with the freedom you need.” However, others chimed in and argued that if “easy access” is what one wants, then nothing beats going commando because it “feels really great.”

Others explained their underwear choices merely reflect their needs. If they are working out, then they wear a pair of briefs because of the much-needed support but if they’re at home, then they don’t mind going commando. For rigorous activities like martial arts, football, baseball, etc., experts recommend jockstraps with protective cups for support and protection. If you want to throw science into the mix however, then, boxer shorts is the clear winner.

That’s them though, what about you? What are the factors that you consider when you are buying your underwear? Is it, for you, about the design, cut, or comfort? Maybe it’s the fabric or the latest styles? Is it the brand or the color, perhaps it’s all of the above? 

Having said all that, what kind of underwear do you love to wear, guys? Share with us your answer to our questions above in the comments section below and don’t forget to answer our survey as well and check out the summer sale at Freshpair for savings up to 50%

    I wear boxers mainly but adapt to whatever I am feeling on a particular day, or if my clothing choice dictates it. I also wear boxer briefs or a jock if i want to change things up a bit. Have not worn briefs since I was 11.

    Nathan Writes:

    Underwear serve a purpose as does most other clothing.

    In Uniform, I had to wear underwear as the uniform was rough, with hems and seams…both of which were sources of rubbing…thus, eventual irritation.

    We wore “Regulation” underwear which were boxers…not briefs. Comfort was incidental as boxers provided room and air circulation. Support was secondary to hygiene and dryness.

    Hence, underwear were necessary but simple and functional.

    Today, I wear athletic shorts when home; when dressed, I wear briefs…usually “Fruit-of-the-Loom as they have 31” waist size…which fits Nathan rather well…as he remains, “fit & Trim.”

    Nathan has no gut and a rather nice flat stomach as I do sit-ups and tightening exercises. I have a personal Trainer who sees that Nathan remains attractive, at 6′ 3″.

    I wear briefs, they are more comfortable for me.. I’m not extra large so I don’t have to worry about hiding it… but I do have a friend who has a big problem. his cock is 11×7 .. HE doesn’t mind someone looking at it and admiring it.. but it’s so large even soft no way he can hide it…often he catches people staring at it.. he has to buy special jeans with low cut straddle. Last Christmas I gave him a couple pear of jeans… He gave them back to me said he could not wear them….I kept saying their your size why can’t you wear them.. Finally he said ok, I’ll show you why.. He put on a pair with his boxer underwear and modeled them for me.. oh man, wow….I was down on my knees in a flash and we forgot all about why he tried them on in the first place…

    Even though I do enjoy a nice pair of sexy jocks or a hot pair of briefs when I’m hooking up, I would say that when I am NOT ( I’m a little trashy), I always practice FREEBALLING. The breeze, the material rubbing ever so slightly on my member, and obvious outline that says… “Thanks for noticing me “.

    I switched to boxer briefs a while back. Like how the leg holes are freer.

    When thinking about my play buds, I can’t generally cite who wears what or who wears what when. It’s always a surprise while unwrapping the package! And they don’t seem to follow the rigid rules set out above abiut what to wear when. One wears a jock with dress pants; he just likes having it all held together when he’s more formally dressed. None of them are commando unless they’re at home; like me, they feel commando has too may issues: the dribble, hairs get caught in pants seams, they’re not looking to have the whole world see what going on at any given moment with their penis, there’s always the zipper issue, etc. But if a guy wants to go commando, it’s his equipment to make that decision over. Others have an assortment of styles and just grab whatever is on top of the clean pile.

    Now, that I’m officially middle-aged and stand at 6’4 tall I’m no longer wearing briefs. I began dabbling into various types of underwear, Boxers, Trunks, Jocks, etc, etc.
    Since I’m a Tall-Man, with a 14-inch shoes, my package must be secure versus flopping around all day. My preferred choice of draws which provides support, with style is Boxer-Briefs. There are so many brands colors etc. Whenever I try a new brand I’ll buy 1 pair, in addition to my trusted favorite brands.
    In closing, when at home and unwinding it’s either gym shorts or a thin breathing fabric lounge, sleeping pant commando.

    I wear thongs almost daily. They provide great support, push out a bulge and make me feel sexy. I will sometimes wear a jock, but thongs are my go-to.

  8. Max

    It depends on the situation. For sex I use jock strap (I’m a bottom). For working out I use a trunk but for everyday use , what ever u can grab (boxer brief, boxer, or brief) as long as they are cotton

  9. mdspank

    If I don’t have the option to go commando, boxer briefs are definitely my choice. They provide the support of briefs but a little bit more to make me feel sexy. Ideal choice though is going commando because I’m usually in a hurry to get everything off 🙂

    I wear bikinis mostly for everyday wear, but I like thongs or g-strings too for fun times…. and a jock occasionally….. boxer brief once in a while also

    I prefer not wear anything, but when I do I always wear a thong. I love how comfortable they are and how it feels like you are not wearing anything at all. I know some will say that’s because you basically aren’t, but I love them. For me, they are comfortable, sexy, and talk about easy access.

    Now that jock straps enter the picture, which is correct for young person, wide part of cup up towards belly button or down towards ball sack? This should be interesting.

  13. Terry

    My choice in underwear changes daily. During the hot weather, I choose jock straps more often. that being said, I wake up and decide what would make me feel good. I sometimes will choose the net briefs, sometimes it is the net boxers, sometimes in is the boxer briefs and sometimes it is a hot little brief number. It is all about what makes me feel good that day.

    I like boxer briefs. I prefer the longer ones that come to your knees. Underwear have come along way in the last 10 years or so!! I like support for my boys!!! LOL!!!

    Generally I wear sort of tight briefs. I like them made with thin material, so that if I play around, my ass can be felt like there was nothing there. My BF also like skimpy tight briefs. Sometimes when I go to an ABS, (porn shop with booths), I find underwear of all kinds left behind by others. I check them out, and try them on, especially if they have cum, piss or poo stains in them. I found one last time that was soaked with pee. I’ve seen g strings, briefs and boxers that have been left behind. Also love to do an underwear swap with a guy, it’s a turn on for me. It’s fun to go into a booth, and walk out with a different pair.

    It’s boxer briefs for me. I feel physically insecure when my penis is hanging freely. Boxer briefs lasso it and saddle it against my thigh comfortably.
