1. Wear the Boxer Short When you are concerned about your Health

Did you know the boxers short are the best kind of underwear to be worn if you want to have baby?.

A study suggested that 35 to 40 percent of infertility problems, which is the inability to get pregnant, are caused by male gender. And Some cause attributed to this are:

  • Low Sperm Count
  • Slow Sperm Motility
  • Abnormal morphology
  • and problem with semen

As all this are pretty obvious a simple lifestyle change can better the odds for a successful fertility and good sperm health.


Since the boxers short have been known to allow for unhindered friction and free from tightness of the body, it reduces the temperature around the and allows sperm production to follow its natural process compared to other types of men’s underwear.

Even better yet, another study also shows that wearing boxers during the day, and then wearing nothing at night lower levels of damaged DNA in sperm.

So if you will be considering the type of boxer to wear for increased fertility and overall sperm health go for the boxer shorts. Briefs are tighter, so it’s possible that they can raise your body temperature, cause heat for sperm to survive. So if a guy wants to be really fertile, boxers short are the way to go. Truth is, this has yet to be scientifically proven but it is something most guys can relate to

2. Wear the Boxers Brief to hold it all in place

When you want to hold everything in place and worry less about:

  • bunching of fabric
  • Having pant shift
  • Or having your boner visible on your pant

You need to consider wearing a pant that has the ability to hold it all in place, which is why you would want to wear the boxers brief or the brief depending on the amount of security you want to have.

Boxer briefs provide more room for the male genitals than briefs, although they give less concealment from penile protrusion during an erection. In response, some boxers short manufacturers have attempted to modify its internal design to give the crotch bulge better obscurity. 

3. What to wear on a Tight or Loose Pant

Here is how you wear the boxer on a tight, perfect fit or loose pant:

Underneath a Tight Pant: you would want to wear the brief or boxer brief if you want more concealment for penile prostution,

here you would want to avoid the brief which may show the outline of the underwear. As you would the Boxer short which may fold fabric and make you look untidy.

You should wear the brief if you would not be out all day, a tight pant complemented with a tight underwear, worn all day, does not sound like a healthy choice.

For a Perfect fit pant, Underwear to wear here really, is your choice really between the boxer brief and the brief

Underneath a Loose pant: Here is where you can wear a boxer short and get away with it, either on your short or baggy pant.

4. Wearing Boxers for Charisma

You may be of the thoughts that since briefs are tighter women prefer men on brief, This makes you think at least they will show a person what you’ve got and what you are made of.

Well, don’t think everyone agrees with that, especially if you are not about to have sex.

Think about it, what if you have a slit on your pant or how good will it really look if you take off your nice suit only to reveal some tight-whities underneath? Not awesome huh?. TO boost your charisma, Boxer briefs and boxers are most recommended. Especially if you want to flaunt your compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others.

5. You need to choose the right Fabric

Underwear are made from varieties of materials, all since materials have its plus and minus it is best to know what material to go for in a particular season and time.

Check out information on each of the material used to make the underwear and how to select them:

It is breathable, airy and cozy especially in humid conditions. The material is soft, absorbent and inexpensive and is considered the king of all fabrics due to its versatility in use. Avoid wearing a cotton underwear though when you are exercising. Since the material is absorbent, it will absorb your sweat, making you uncomfortable. After your workout, the next best thing to do is change the underwear.

Microfiber construction makes nylon a great material that is soft and keeps the wearer dry. It is a great option for underwear worn to the gym, for all-around use. Mostly found in most thong or jockstrap.

Modal is the best choice if nylon doesn’t fit your absorption needs. It is less supportive though, compared to the nylon material, but soft and smooth option for men’s underwear.

Rayon has a very soft feel a and is well-known for keeping the skin cool especially for hot and humid weather. Though this material is made of cellulose or wood pulp and has a tendency to stretch.

The soft and smooth silk is very absorbent, but is not a conductor of heat. However, it is a preferred option for keeping you warm in the winter and for other warmer month. The silk is known for its luxurious look and feel, so you may not find men wear them to the gym as most men reserve them for a special night out a date or that special occasion.

The benefit of spandex is its significant strength and elasticity and its ability to return to the original shape after stretching, (used for most boxer brief and briefs underwear) and faster drying than ordinary fabrics.

Most boxers short are made with linen, due to its low heat conductivity that makes it cooler for hot and humid weather.

The material can be strong, wrinkle and tear-resistant, and reduce shrinking. Any underwear comes to your mind?, you sure will not find this in Boxers short, but you would in most briefs and boxers brief.

6. Do this to avoid Rashes around the Groin or Jock Itch

Jock itch due to wearing wet underwear

 Wait, what is Jock itch?

Well, is a fungal infection of the skin. Though are typically harmless, but can multiply quickly and cause infections when they’re allowed to thrive in warm, moist areas on the body. That’s why jock itch usually develops in the skin around the groin, inner thighs, and buttocks.

What are the causes of this?

  • When you remain in sweat-soaked cloths after exercising
  • When you wear the same underwear repeatedly for days without wash
  • When you don’t dry up well
  • when there is heat around the groin, inner thighs, and buttocks, which in turn leads to sweating.

How do you solve this?

  • Change your underwear everyday
  • Wear the right material for your underwear in the hot season (Cotton, linen or wool)
  • Wear loose cotton clothing. Read more

7. How to Partially and Totally Obscure Erection

To partially Obscure erection you may choose to wear either the Thong, Jockstrap, Brief or the Boxers brief. But to totally obscure erection there is a particular type of underwear designed to obscure the erection are usually referred to as bloxers, though there are really not as popular as the others mention for partially obscuring erection.

The bloxers provide extra layer of support,

Here’s the plan, While regular underwear have just one layer of fabric separating your manhood from the world, Bloxers has two. An inner layer close to your body which acts like a compressor holding the boner down and an outer layer that hangs out like every other boxers. The inner layer does all the work to totally obscure erection.

bloxer's promise
Though, as sweet as all that may sound, it is an idea that have been unheard-of since July 2015, so if you require to obscure erection you have the choice of the Thong, Jockstrap or the brief depending on your choice.

8. Choosing the Best Colors

There really is nothing like the best color when it comes to wearing an underwear.

The boxers shorts are usually made with varieties of color, some plain, some stripped and some checked depending on the manufacturers choice, one thing to note here is the tape on the waist, for professional wears it is recommended to go for a plain color rather than a multi color which would be fine for every other settings apart from a formal setting.

But I would recommend Brown, Black, Grey and dark Blue for every other kind of underwear (say the boxers brief, briefs, thong, among others) apart from the boxer shorts, as these colors looks cool and professional.

9. Emphasis on Support

Did you know that the boxer you wear for a day, affects your mood and esteem throughout that day one way or another?, let me explain why.

boxer short have not support compared to the brief

If you are wearing a pant that has, all your boner shape visible in the office, or you are at the gym minding your business, only to squat and reveal those “Mr happy” you see this situation among others can be quite embarrassing.

What you should do is identify when you would need the support feature on your underwear, then actually wear the underwear that has that feature. Doing that would not just lead to a raise in esteem but would also polish your look and increase your style.

10. Show your personality with your Boxers

Some boxers are customizable and you can have all text or design you want printed on it, but other than that, you probably have seen some men sagging, of course they attempt to flaunt the design which in turn reflect their kind of personality.

In as much as you will not be able to customize your jockstrap, thong or brief and flaunt them for anyone to see, you could with your boxers. As Studies have shown that women, in particular, prefer boxers. There’s something to be said for a little mystery, and briefs can seem too obvious and revealing.

  1. Hi Abdulramon,

    This article is very helpful considering the damage being down to ones sperm count caused by not wearing boxers appropriately. I have heard various complaints and effect of this in the recent years

    Your tips are very captivating. I think you are doing a great job generally of being visible on the blogging space, I have gone through some of your works which are amazing and helpful

    1. Thank you so much for your comment Ayodeji,

      Please like and follow my social account to stay abreast of latest posts.


  2. I didn’t know there was bloxer that could help conceal a boner. It’s pretty stupid when Mr Happy decides to start protruding for no reason, makes me feel like a psycho especially at the office. I really would like to get one of these bloxers to see how well it can conceal a boner. Do bloxers come in different sizes or is it one for all?

    1. You would hardly find a bloxer out there, unless it is “Bespoke – specifically made for you”, no recent news have been heard from the company that brought the idea in 2015.

      For now if you require to obscure erection, I would recommend the Thong or Jockstrap. Just try to make sure you follow the boxer rule.

  3. Thank you for this great post, highly informative and easy to comprehend. Thanks for taking your time to come up with this ten great tips on how to wear men underwear. Am just getting to know through this post that 35-40% of infertility issue can be traced to men. Though I don’t usually have a hard time wearing my underwear but I will share this post with my office partners.

  4. This is really en eye-opener. I did not know that there was so many different varieties or functions for mens underwear. I really enjoyed reading about the benefits of the different fabrics. Every time I purchase underwear either for myself or my partner, I always buy cotton as it is like you say, very breathable which is super important. I did not realize that it would make things a bit uncomfortable when exercising tho, I do now. Perhaps I will try to find some nylon and try the next time I workout. Thanks for a great article.

    1. Glad you found the article helpful Alexandra,

      Do not forget, the nylon material is really not a healthy choice for the body compared to the cotton. Though it is perfect for a workout underwear.

      Just try to follow the underwear rules, and change your boxer after the gym.

  5. It  is not good for men to wear boxers that are too tight for them. It’s good for men to wear shorts that can allow the penetration of air into their body. When there is no air to get to the scrotal sac it can cause overheat that could damage the sperm cells and that could result to infertility in a man.

  6. You nailed it. This post is really educating. I read it word for words. I have always thought there is repercussion of wearing some boxers that gives no space for mobility underneath. Normally, I wear free boxer during the day and wear absolutely nothing going to bed. In times of fabrics, I’ve always prefer cotton because of the freshness it brings for. I don’t wear a boxer twice.

    1. Thank you for the comment, Kehinde. 

      Nice to hear you don’t wear a boxer twice before wash, It is a habit every other person of both gender needs to incorporate into their lifestyle.

  7. Hi Abdulramon Elegushi,

    I have read the whole article about ten tips on how to wear men’s underwear and I understood the main concept of this article. I would not even consider all of those guideline of wearing underwear if I did not read your article. I have same opinion now that wearing boxer is a perfect choice for any man. However I have a little bit concern about it’s lasting period and it’s elasticity. I love those boxer short pants which is more favorite to me.

    1. Hi and thanks for the read,

      Yeah wearing a boxer is a really good choice for men if they are worn with the right kind of outfit.

      If your concern is about the lasting period of the pant and elasticity then you would want to go for a spandex made underwear.

      Let me know if you have any further questions, and i will be glad to help out

  8. Thank you for sharing ¨10 Tips On How To Wear Men´s Underwear¨. A friend of mine made me two comments that I´d like to pass on to you..

    The first one is to have a collection of men´s underwear. He said men should have at least 10 pairs of underwear on hand at all times. That´s one for every day of the week plus two additional for weekends nights and another thrown in for good measure of some sort of, um, emergency. The second comment is to find a brand. He claims variety is the spice of life, except, perhaps, when it comes to men´s underwear. It can be difficult to find a brand that fits just right – one that holds the goods in place without being too tight or too loose. But once you happen to stumble upon the right kind, it´s a good idea to stock up.Would you add these two tips?

    1. Thanks so much for your insight Enrique, you made a valid point here and it should be up there in the post.

      Cheers and thanks for sharing.

  9. This is an eye opener for me; I love this insightful article. I am knowing for the first time that boxers can cause low sperm count and sperm motility.

    Another important info i learnt from your article is that our boxers must be neat always; some guys go to the extent of wearing the same boxers for roughly 3-4 days which is  unethical if you ask me.

    Thanks for sharing

  16. Hey,

    Thanks for sharing this amazing article . Underwear is one of the most private and personal decisions in menswear because only very few people will see it , yet it is worn everyday , all day , right nest to the skin . Boxer briefs are hardly a compromise as they represent are the best of both types of underwear . I think , they are excellent for physical activity and look especially good . 

  17. Thanks for this advice for wearing men’s underwear. You mentioned that nylon underwear can be good to wear when going to the gym or even just all-around use. it sounds important to think about what you’re doing every day to figure out what material you need.

  18. Haha.. what a great post.  I have always been a brief (jock) man myself as I find boxer shorts too uncomfortable under jeans and board shorts (which is pretty much all I wear).  And also, without going into too much detail I also find the old groin itch a lot worse if I don’t wear briefs – cotton of course.

    I do however swear by boxer shorts for bed as they are roomier and cooler.  Jocks to bed are too tight, and to be honest, tend to slide down which is never a good thing.

    I really enjoyed your post and might try some tighter boxers in future – although my kid producing years have passed so probably ok now.. hahaha.


    1. Thanks for your comment Paul🙂, you are one classic man

      One thing people tend to miss out and which is part of the goal of this post is that every underwear have it’s place and time depending on type and material of course in order to ensure and assume a healthy state or lifestyle and still move with style.

  19. I never knew wearing undergarments for men is this crucial. I’m a married woman, so I kept asking my husband about this aspect. Most of them are also answered in your post. So, reading your content is very informative for me, especially with choosing the right undergarment for him. Thank you so much for that. 🙂 

  20. This is the very first time I have run across an article on this topic, but I have to say, it is a timely and useful subject. Men tend not to think that much about wearing underwear, and most certainly these 10 tips on how to wear men’s underwear will help a lot of men out.

    You put a lot of thought into these tips, and when added together, men who read and heed will be far better off for meeting the needs of the underwear and areas they protect. Whether it is the style of underwear, the material, or the fit, a little thought and following these 10 tips prior to buying your next sets of underwear will help men.

    I had to think back about all the times I have bought underwear over the years (lots of years, almost 63 of them now) and most of the time, it was a spontaneous decision to get this or that type, and also the same with materials. As an example, I have learned that it is either silk or 100% cotton for me. when it comes to materials… 

    I have bookmarked this post and will look through it before I go on my next replenishment shopping foray. Thanks for putting this useful article on 10 tips for wearing men’s underwear! I am sure many readers will do the same.

  21. Interesting Abdulramon,

    I’ve been wearing briefs day and night but after finding out about the part of the boxers, I think I need to change how I wear my underwear. Would it still be healthy for me if I still wear briefs but only during the day? Since I have to move around a lot while working, I think I still need to wear it though but at night I can definitely switch to boxers.

  22. I found this article to be very insiteful with a little humor. 

    I have heard that sperm count could be damaged due to wearing underwear to tight but I didn’t know it to be true.I especially had NO CLUE that they made special underwear to help conceal boners! Even though I am a woman I still find these to be pretty awesome!

    Good Job!

    Miss D.

  23. I agree with your recommendations here. I have heard before that wearing boxers is healthier than wearing tighties, but it was some time ago and a reminder is always appreciated. On a day to day basis I think that cotton is probably the way to go. but something like silk on a special occasion can be nice. Boxers are my all-time favorites here. This is an informative post, keep up the good work.

  24. Nice Blog. Underwear is an active part of mens clothing. Underwears are available in different style and colours. It is an important part to select the best one which would be both supportive and comfortable.  Mens underwear is available with different colour, shape, size and various other options.

  25. Nice Blog. Selection of underwear is not an easy task. Nowadays a long list of mens underwear is available out of which the best one is to be selected up. I love wearing mens underwear and this is the right time when everyone should leave the old and conventional style of mens underwear and should try something new and interesting. I have tried mens underwear from Gooddevil.com and it was a great experience of heaving them.
