    A guy I work with was talking with a group of us the other day about how he was trying out switching from boxers to boxer briefs (YAY!!) and he had gotten some from American Eagle that had no fly on them, just the pouch. He was confused by this because I guess he's been stuck in the world of boxers for so long he couldn't comprehend not having a "pee hole," as he so eloquently put it.
    We tried explaining to him the difference, and advantages of the increasingly common pouch front styles, but I'm not sure we got through to him.

    So my question to you is, which do you prefer, and how would you handle a similar situation? Personally, I prefer the pouch styles because I find them more comfortable and I never really use the fly if available anyway.

    I have worn both. I prefer the pouch I have had a few buttonhole stretched out and didn't really stay buttoned or keep me in. I go commando mostly now but when I do wear them it's usually the pouch.

    Tried boxers when they first became fashionable and before they had yuppie associations. Didn't stay with them for long, my bits kept getting strangled, especially as I was in a large military camp and cycled everywhere. Soon went back to briefs, over the top sort. I discovered boxer briefs, and switch between them and briefs now.
    My present (winter) favourite underpants are Pringle button front trunks. A good snug fit, close fitting legs half way down the thigh, and plenty room in front, upholding without crushing. I seldom use the button front, still unbuckle, unfasten and over the top, except when I am wearing a heavily laden utility belt and I can't get into a private cubicle - the weight of the belt pulls your trousers down if you unfasten!

    Commando or boxer-briefs here. I think there was a survey here that indicated the majority of men here, including myself, don't use the fly anyway but use the over-the-top move. So yes, go for your personal comfort.

    I wear Jockey Boxer Briefs with the Kangaroo Pouch. The fly is horizontal, so all you have to do is pull down in order to relieve yourself (or gain access). The "Y" fly in classic briefs was always annoying with the pull over and through motion--seems they were made to make sure you never poked out of the front. Jockey has realized this and makes a regular brief with the pouch front as well.

    Pouch front for me, the fly front never works when I have to bend and snake my dick to get it free. Side note: that picture of lex made me do a little bit of a sex wee.

    I lived in France some years ago and there was a brand of boxers that has a mesh inside the front to keep your bits from falling down the leg, but you could still use the fly.

    I always understood the fly front was a sartorial method to allow stretch room for erections. I don't know anyone who prefers struggling with getting his penis thru the fly, rather than simply pulling down the waistband and peeing that way: "over the fence" rather than "thru the gate," as they say on Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

    I'm the same way. I almost exclusively wear trunks, which almost never have a fly front. I feel like the pouch just gives better support than ones without. Plus they just look better!

    Try the Jockey Brief or the Jockey Boxer Brief with the horizontal fly. Just reach in for a quick withdrawal. Great support, too. Both styles surely beat a no-fly brief!
