I had a college roommate who swore up and down that thongs were the only underwear worth wearing. I, on the other hand, would pretty much rather eat my own eyeballs than string myself up like a Christmas ham. Potayto, pohtahto—right? We all make our choices!
But here's the thing: men have never had to make that choice. They get a myriad of comfy undies from which to choose—from roomy boxers to pillowy-soft boxer briefs to sometimes tighty whities, which aren't all that tight*, men have only total comfort when it comes to the mysterious fathoms below. (Never miss the opportunity to make a Little Mermaids reference!)
However, when men are forced to stuff their junk into some teeny tiny panties, it ain't a walk in the park. Welcome to our world, guys! Enjoy the lack of breathable fabric! (And uh, the lack of fabric, in general.)
*And often not all that white, but that's for another discussion right, men? HEY OH! (Sorry.)
