    What is everyone's thought about the symbolism of men's underwear choices?
    I once saw and article that talked about what the symbolism was of guys who wore briefs, boxers, going commando, etc.

    Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

    Or they wear what they grew up wearing.

    My family moved a lot, so I changed changed schools every year or so, when I was a kid. The first day of PE, I'd strip down and perhaps discover I was wearing briefs when everybody else was wearing boxers. Oops! (That's when I learned to pull down my underwear with my jeans.)

    Some men just wear briefs, boxers, or whatever because their "Mom" made them, they consider the matter settled so they go about other interests...like how to get pretty girls (or handsome men) in bed.

    LOL

    Men who wear the same underwear type they did as a kid are creatures of habit?

    Men who wear no underwear have very deep ass cracks and not prone to skid marks?

    Men who wear bikini briefs secretly want to be European?

    Alternate generations. To my generation, boxers were comical.

    I'd like to read the article just to see what the writer was thinking.

    Symbolism, huh? Having been a briefs guy for all but the last 2 years, and then switching to boxers, here is a thought. Briefs hold everything in place. Safely, securely. There is rarely a risk or worry that your genitals will be exposed. Boxers, on the other hand, feel like you're naked. Your dick can move wherever it wants to go. If you get hard, there is nothing to restrain it or hold it back. So perhaps the boxers guys are more risk taking and less security conscious with clothes. Often, when guys wear boxers with lightweight pants or shorts, the distinct outline of the head will show as it hangs down one leg or the other. Many guys are okay with it and could care less if it shows. It took me a while to get to the point where I'll wear what feels comfortable and not worry if my dick shows in my clothes. I'm not going to wear tight underwear to make everyone else happy while I'm miserable.

    There is no significance to my wearing trunk breifs because they make me look like an Abercrombie model.

    No, sry. They make me look like BB King... seriously: I wear A&N trunks because they're actually flattering to my physical appearance (when I'm in my underwear, I mean). I also funnily enough feel a bit more confident wearing nice underwear - kind of like when you're little you wear little red rocketship briefs for the same reason - and they bring my bulge up to the front a bit more, so it;s more noticeable in my jeans.
