Boxers or briefs? Such a weird question to ask when you think of it. But for every budding young man entering the world of adulthood and women, it’s one of the first “manly things they wonder about”. The world’s been divided for a long time over the business of the underwear, which is, to be perfectly put, the “last line of defense for men”.
A man’s underwear has undergone an iconic change and is now more of a fashion statement than anything else.
Innerwear having a huge elastic strap with blazing letters forming the words ‘Calvin Klein’ isn’t meant to be hidden anymore, what with all the low waist pants we get these days *just so you know, CK undies were all the rage since Ashton Kutcher’s undie billboards in the 90s*.
A few decades ago, if one ever caught a glimpse of someone’s underwear, not only was it *uncool*, it was also quite disgusting!
And then came the transformation in the 2000s, guys were seen wearing pants well below their butt cracks, with nothing but sheer cotton whities and a big brand emblazoning it. It’s was still disgusting though.
Surprisingly, this trend isn’t restricted to men alone. Women too acquired a serious fascination to show off their beautiful underwear strings and lacy lingerie to anyone who cares *and don’t men just love that!*.
But girls and their underwear apart, men’s underwear has evolved a long way in their lives. And apparently, the kind of underwear a man chooses talks a lot about his personality, whatever that means!

Do girls like boxers or briefs?
Haven’t we all heard that women prefer men with boxers, and mama’s boys wear briefs and tighty whities?
It may make some sense, considering that briefs come in all sizes, whereas boxers come only in larger sizes that fit men, and not boys. And in any case, guys look at boxers as the proof of transition from boyhood to rugged manhood, right?
But how true can this really be? And could your underwear actually make the difference between a dorky nerd and a manly sex god? It’s time to reveal the real dirt. [Read: Sleeping with someone new for the first time? 13 must-know rules to remember]
Boxers vs Briefs – What guys need to know
It all comes down to this, doesn’t it? Men will stuff anything into their pants, just as long as a girl gives it a second glance. The first time you believed the theory that boxers are supposedly cooler was when you heard a sexy bombshell in a movie admire a man’s banana-split through a pair of silk boxers.
So do girls really prefer boxers over briefs? Well, that’s just nonsense.
There really isn’t such a thing as the sexier underwear. The best adage that can be associated with underwear is probably ‘to each his own’. So irrespective of whether you’re a boxer man or a brief dude, don’t worry. You’re still hot stuff! [Read: A man’s guide to looking effortlessly sexy in bed]
Worried about what women would think about your underwear? The chatter about boxers being preferred over all other types of underwear is just a myth perpetuated by movies in the 90s. It’s been over 30 years now, and guys still seem to believe that boxers are somehow better!
Seriously, dude, almost all women are fine with boxers or briefs. Well, just as long as you keep them clean and unstained! [Read: What women think about having sex with an uncircumcised man]
Briefs, fertility and your happy balls
Most men prefer wearing boxers even if it does have its own share of discomforts because they firmly believe that tighter briefs reduce the sperm count in men.
It’s always been believed that tight briefs generate a lot of heat, which leads to mass killing of a man’s sperm cells. The claim seems rather realistic, especially considering the fact that briefs do make your little Johnny feel like a contortionist performing in the Sahara. [Read: What are blue balls? All the facts and how to get rid of them]
And to make things worse for the brief wearers, the heat can make your coin purse sag out like an old man’s balls in tiny shorts. You know, it does look kinda *unsexy* when a girl goes down and finds two droopy, hairy, crinkly, man baby boobs. It makes me want to buy your little fella a push up bra!
But nevertheless, studies on humans and dogs made to wear underwear *serious, but WTF!* have shown that these claims are totally baseless. Apparently, the heat generated by wearing a brief wasn’t really enough to make your sperm warriors go on a mass suicide spree. [Read: Sexy road head confessions of a good girl]
Why you should wear briefs
There are a lot of things you really can’t do when Johnny and his two hanging buddies are flopping low in boxers. You can’t go hopping on a horse, you can’t really run fast without the fear of your thighs crushing your Jim Beans, and you definitely can’t wear well fitting trousers. The brief is the best accessory if you’re wearing well-cut pants. No woman really wants to see a boxer-bulge and a crumpled butt stuffed with layers of clothing.
If you’re into sports or lead an active lifestyle, you definitely need tighty whities to ensure you’re comfortable. It holds your sausage sack in place and doesn’t really come in your way when you’re on an adventure. And briefs are always better at concealing an unforced erection. Otherwise, Superman, what with his super x-ray vision, wouldn’t really be wearing another pair of briefs over his pants, would he?
Seriously, if limpy wants to start swaying to a charmer when a perky hottie bootyshakes on your Instagram feed, wear your briefs, you lil’ perv. [Read: Why are girls going commando? 15 reasons why girls are dropping their panties]
Why you should wear boxers
Boxers are designed for men that like a little air flow in their harbor. If you have a private jet that inflates to the size of a jumbo jet when you see a group of fit girls jiggling on an evening jog, you definitely need something more comfortable than a tighty whitey.
Boxers are easy to use, and you don’t really need to dig down there or use a spring action lever to pull your hot dog out from deep within to water the plants or write your name in the snow.
And if you’re into flashy bling bling undies, boxers come in many stylish colors and patterns. Have you ever seen a glow in the dark or Spongebob briefs? I think not. Boxers are more stylish and define the type of man who wears them. They can be fun, sexy, outrageous or simple. [Read: Girls selling used panties – The facts you’re dying to know]
So what’s best really, boxers or briefs?
While women don’t really care about boxers or briefs, as long as it looks good on you, I’d say otherwise. If it’s my suggestion, I’d tell you to go with the best of both worlds. Use a boxer brief.
Boxer briefs aren’t really small and compact like a brief which can at times look like an oversized G-string when it gets trapped in a man’s butt crack. And boxer briefs don’t really scream ‘wannabe’ like a boxer does. [Read: The complete guide to saggy balls and what girls think of them]
Boxer briefs are comparatively airier, and fit very well on a man’s butt. They conceal themselves well in cotton trousers and suit pants, and yet, look well fitting and sexy when a man’s walking around in his bare minimum. It accentuates your ass and makes it look firm, and girls love that.

So do girls like boxers or briefs? While the rest of the men fight over boxers and briefs, leave the stupid war behind and cover your own ass with something like a boxer brief that’s well fitting, snug, sexy and most importantly, mature. And the girl in your bed will love you for that!
