We can all admit that gay men just know how to do a few things better than straight men. Perhaps this is a bit politically incorrect, but let’s face it, it’s 100% true. We’re not necessarily saying that gay men are always in the loop about the latest fashion trends and interior design fads, but generally speaking gay men have much better fashion sense than the straight guys.
This becomes especially apparent when you compare gay mens underwear to the underwear worn by straight men. If you’re a straight guy reading this and want to learn a thing or two about how to boost your underwear game, it’s time to take a few plays from this gay man’s underwear rule book.
Think About the Fit Before Anything Else
It doesn’t matter if you prefer a snug pair of tighty whities or you’re more of a boxer briefs fan, the first thing to focus on is the fit of your underwear. No matter how expensive those Calvin Kleins or Dolce and Gabbanas are, your underwear won’t look good if they don’t fit properly.
Gay men know that it is important to not just look at the size (like small, medium, or large) but also look at the specifications for each size depending on the manufacturer. One company’s small might be more similar to another company’s medium, so it is important to read into the actual measurements in order to get the best fit possible.
Gotwords.org talks about the importance of fit in relation to comfort and sex appeal: “Find ones that are comfortable for you. Comfort is important but also find ones that accentuate those three features (legs, ass, and junk). Be sure they are comfortable, but also that they accentuate what you got going on and that stimulate you a little sexuality.”
Next, Consider Making a Statement
Just because your underwear isn’t as exposed as your shirt or pair of slacks does not mean it has to lack style or originality. Don’t be afraid to try something funky with your underwear choices. Go for a pattern or color you wouldn’t normally wear, like a nautical pattern or hot pink.
Or instead of your normal breezy boxers, a pair of sleek boxer briefs a try. There are plenty of designer and department store brands that go all out in terms of color and pattern. You can find everything from bright beachy briefs to flashy jockstraps. Trying something new and out of your comfort zone is a great way to get an unexpected boost in confidence.
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Your Partner
It doesn’t matter if you are gay, straight, bisexual, or transexual, you should always feel comfortable asking your partner or partners for opinions. For some reason, a lot of straight men don’t believe in chatting about things like undergarments with their lady friends, but that way of thinking needs to stop ASAP. You should feel completely comfortable going to your partner for any type of life advice, including advice on underwear choices.
