You have heard us say this many times, so I thought I would go into detail more about this concept. It is “what will I wear today since I’m going to the gym?” Granted there are guys out there who will wear what ever and not give it a thought, and I used to be one of those. But, most guys, I tend to think that they must wear more conservative underwear to the gym.
When I was younger, back in the day, I would go to the gym and wear a thong as a jock. Yes, I said it. I would go in and I would put on the thong at the gym, work out, and then change back. The gym I worked out in was a small one and not many guys were ever in the locker room. It wouldn’t have mattered if it was crowded I still would have worn it. I just liked it. I know we have a lot of guys that say, “A thong? Really?” Hey, the things you do when you’re 18.
The average guy I don’t think takes many risks when he knows he’s going to the gym. It appears most guys wear just traditional underwear. Traditional underwear is white briefs, white boxer briefs and some black. I haven’t seen a lot of colors in the locker room. For both gay and straight guys, I think many of them won’t say they love underwear. I know our readers here freely admit it, but I think for the population at large it’s kind of off limits to admit your love. It’s one of those topics you don’t talk about. I have talked to guys and when I mention the blog or I love underwear they go “I love underwear too.” Its like it’s a secret they cant’ share. I think there is still a little stigma attached to admitting you like underwear. I wished more guys would wear what ever they want and not worry about it.
It goes back to the whole locker room thing in high school. I remember the days when if you wore anything different, you were immediately made fun of and shunned. Back in the day, I used to wear bikinis and very few guys actually wore them. I remember three guys total wore them out of 70. Which I was in the minority and changed really fast! I never got made fun of though, but then again I changed FAST!
This brings me to what is the gym factor we use on the site. It is a more conservative pair. There could be some color but pretty much it sticks to just black and white. The styles are briefs and boxer briefs. The perfect example of this is the C-IN2 Core Lo No Show Brief. It’s very comfortable but very classic in styling. So, when we say “Gym Factor” on the site, its more geared to the conservative guy.
I am curious to know who follow this and who is daring to wear something maybe from Bjorn Borg, Joe Snyder, Gigo or Cocksox? Also, do you guys think a lot of guys follow this? What is the wildest thing you have worn to the gym? Lastly, what is the wildest undies you’ve seen a guy wear at the gym?
BTW, if you’re curious what I wear to the gym now, it’s usually a jock, when I go….
