There are very few men who show a bulge down the leg these days. Times have certainly changed. When I was a kid in the 1950s and 60s, it was common for men to be sporting bulges down one leg or the other. The bulges were the result of so many men wearing boxer shorts. No one seemed to get upset over the bulges; that's just the way men dressed. Back then, young boys wore briefs, but men needed more room and wore boxer shorts. In my teens, I switched from briefs to boxers. The bulge down my leg bothered me at first, but I got used to it.
