UNB has gone through many changes over the years. This October will be the 15th year of the blog. This is an accomplishment; many underwear blogs I read back in the day ended. It’s a lot of work to blog and stays motivated over the years.

Over the last few years, I have been doing the blog myself. We had a staff of up to 9 guys in the early years. Due to my constraints, I had to cut back on some content. I have been wondering where UNB is going in the future. As you can tell, the podcast is one area we are focusing on in the future. It has and continues to do very well and reaches new people who have never read UNB. However, content is not dead. I’m in the middle of planning out the year and have some areas I want to focus on.

  1. Masculinity – What is and is not considered masculine has shifted. There are no clear-cut rules as to what is considered “What a man should wear.” This is an area we need to address and talk about.
  2. Communication – This one goes hand in hand with community building. We need to share our love of underwear/gear. Who do you share your love of underwear with, friends, partners, and people online?
  3. Community Building – Social media is a dumpster fire for men’s underwear. Many amazing guys have been banned or kicked off social media for sharing their love. There are so many rules and regulations; where can we go to build a community? One that is welcoming to every sexual orientation and body size.
  4. Body Image – I suffer for this one, and we need to talk more and more. Not everyone is a muscle guy or wants to be one. But you should get the body you want and enjoy underwear and gear.
  5. Sexuality – We need to talk about issues affecting guys across the sexuality spectrum. We have problems that affect all, but each group faces issues independently.
  6. Sensuality – This is one that I think is super important. Showing off online and sharing pics can cause negative or rude comments. We all want to feel sensual in our underwear and feel our very best. But there is a difference between showing off for thirst traps and showing off because we feel amazing and want to share it with the world.
  7. Acceptance – Lastly, for this post, accepting and being open about our love of gear. I didn’t think this was a big deal when I started UNB. However, now that we have readers/listeners across the sexuality spectrum, many guys hide their love, and yes, some gay guys do as well. We need to make it “normal” to chat underwater with friends about what we find sexy and comfortable.

I would welcome any feedback from you guys. Feel free to DM me on social media or email me your thoughts. If you do, I may want to have a deeper conversation with you, so be ready.
