Men's Underwear

Thursday, February 24, 2005
Bhavya’s recent post umm “inspired me”?, to post this li’l piece I had written when I was in my eight grade. Ofcourse this one is edited with the recent additions and all that.



MEN’S UNDERWEAR

For many days I wanted to write on something but didn’t find the right topic. I found my topic yesterday while seeing television- Men’s Underwear. I am quite surprised why it was never written about or been a topic for a debate, which would certainly be for only the messier gender because I personally feel that women can’t handle all that pressure and stink.
I mean really, it has been there since ages; as a matter of fact it was the first form of clothing ever to have been on this planet (back then it was made up of leaves, 100% eco- friendly!) As legend goes, Egyptian civilization underwear was made of linen and was something like the outer covering of the mummies! Indian’s used to wear langotas which are traditional underwear, they have to be tied using a string, and the French, well, it’s all they wear. But in modern times men’s underwear are well underwear, nothing official about it, they aren’t women underwear, which have fancy designs and are made of silk and satin. In other words there’s a lot of plagiarism going on in the underwear world, ‘cause almost all the underwear have the same design. But for ordinary men (or boys) like you and me underwear is a basic necessity like chips, computer games and jeans. I heard in one of the television shows that men really don’t care about their underwear. They abuse it by wearing the same one for a whole week and then use another (they don’t wash the previous one). They keep on using the underwear till every bit of it is battered, torn and farted upon. They keep on using it till the threads comes out and its solid mass cannot hold any other solid mass. I have never understood the concept of advertisement in the underwear industry. The companies make the craziest ads possible and present it to us. One says that it’ll help you fight demons and get the girls while the other says it’s the best thing to naked. And then you have this one where they show female lingerie fly half a mile and falls on a clothes string clinging next to a male counterpart. And then you also have the out of the box weird advertisements where they show your underwear breathing and saying its bacteria resistant. Damn! The media is cruel; they haven’t left anyone or anything.
Some how for some strange reason men’s underwear isn’t associated with sexyness ( I can’t really comment on that since I’m totally straight, I’ll have to confirm it with the ladies). I mean women look beautiful in almost anything. But then, with men its quite different isn’t it? They look good in Bermudas, in shorts, in suits but they look weird in underwear. Try looking at Jack Black( the guy from shallow hall) or even Hugh Grant in some of their movies. They all look repulsive.( ladies back me up on this one. lol).
Nowadays there is this recent trend. With the introduction of low rise jeans and the likes, people have a new fashion statement. Showing the brand of you’re underwear. It’s quite simple. All you do is wear a underwear, with the elastic thingummy (I don’t know what it’s called, jockey calls it a string bikini, some how male and bikini don’t go together) and pull you underwear up and your jeans low so that the brand name is visible (of the underwear of course not of the jeans (duh)) this trend was popularized by the Killer jeans advertisement too.(but then we all don’t have examiners as hot as the model in the ad do we?). Warning: try this only if you have a reputed underwear brand. I mean wearing a brand like “Pammi” sanitary needs of “hero underwear” you don’t really want to try this act. Gonna ruin your style. I wanted to write more about lingerie too but then check the title, ‘t says “men’s underwear”. So I’ll leave it to that. Good morning tyall!

I know, you were just an eighth grader then, but not now right? :)

Dood, silk and satin are never used for underwear as they trap heat inside, cause sweating, discomfort and will lead to rosy pink rashes.

Next time, wrap your stuff with some silk cloth a whole day and tell me what you feel like.

And you say this for women?!!

rishabh_flop_ruler

lmao. well i thought satin panties existed. i didn't know. thnx fer "enlightening" me on the finer details bro.

VT

Yes, you are right. My statement is not entirely correct, sorry for that. Nowadays there are certain fabrics which give silk/satin like smooth feel and still allow for comfort. They advertize them as silk/satin.

And they may also sell pure silk or satin underwear to wear for those short special moments of togetherness. I mean those moments when one wears clothes to take them off.

But certainly one can't wear them in Indian climate for a whole day!

rishabh_flop_ruler

ah. now i didnt knw tht too. thnx fer enlightening me again.

Underwears have certainly become the flavour of the day.You're right,Rishabh, Hugh Grant and Jack Black's underwears dont compliment them because they highlight their body fat.Neither does it work for a Danny DeVito but guys with six pack abs in underwears arent something to complain about.Whatever guys wear, the most disgusting thing about them is their scratching the crotch habit.I've seen a lot of guys do it and felt like planting one tight slap on their face.Its terribly disgusting when this happens.

rishabh_flop_ruler

hahahaha. yea i know that can be a real pain in the ass..guys scratchin their crotch. how come guys dont mind gals adjusting their boobs?( ok that prolly wasnt the best way to put it and it makes me feel sick now. lol)

bengali_beauty

No, it wasn't!

VT

Don't want to sound condoning the scratching-one's-crotch thing myself. One should always resist that feeling in public.

But BB (sounds different!), you seem to overlook a fact here, you need to be a guy to feel what it is like having stuff cuddled between your thighs. Yeah, skin on skin causes sweat and irritation (like sweating under one's arms, which you BB can relate to).

This is especially true for summer months. So have some mercy!

bengali_beauty

Umm...not in public ....do it anywhere else people are not watching you.

rishabh_flop_ruler

here i'd like to advertise for the benefit of both men and women. use itchguard! not that it helps much but gives a fake satisfaction atleast.

What the shit!!! Try wearing a jeans in Hyderabad weather... loaded with a wallet and a pack of cigarettes on one side and a cell-phone, hanky, and bike keys and pen and cigarette lighter and loads of mint in the right side pocket and u expect us not to scratch...? Get realistic.. Women use handbags.. So u wudnt know. Moreover do u know how body sweat just ruins ur cigarettes and cell-phone?

Arcane Crapper

The nerve of u, BB ;-)

bengali_beauty

Well, I so would like to think that sweat is the reason but other thoughts immediately come to mind, especially if the guy is looking at you and doing it and then I'm consumed with intense disgust and anger

rishabh_flop_ruler

sweat is the ONLY reason rina. or maybe the tight underwear too. but thats bout it.

bengali_beauty

Hmm....ok...granted...
