We have finally found a women writer who doesn't try to bash men about their underwear but instead tries to understand the whys of men's underwear. A recent Toronto Suna article noted that women typically run out and buy new underwear when they find a new relationship, but that men barely blink when it comes to underwear because to men it is simply functional clothing. She then notes, though, that men's underwear styles hint at their personality and relationship qualities:
Guys who wear plain or darkly patterned boxers are usually
traditional and conservative but willing to expand their horizons;
those in cheery, wildly decorated boxers may have a good sense of
humour (or be a clown) and like to experiment; those in classic white
Y-fronts are often inhibited or just unimaginative but often have
hidden passions; a brightly-coloured minimal bikini can indicate good
sexual enthusiasm, especially if sported by the young and slender. Any
man with a belly should never, ever consider a bikini -- if he wants a
sex life that is ...
He's wearing underpants that sparkle, or sport a weird or
cheeky message? He's in a relationship already and his partner gave
them to him.
And what about the one who doesn't wear any at all?
Very erotic indeed. Or that's what I think. Never mind some
women who say it's probably because his washing machine's on the fritz.
To me it indicates sensuality and perhaps an independent thinker.
Thank you for trying to understand men and their underwear preferences instead of just judging.
