This year we decided to do something different in our Valentines Day Guide. I asked our guys to recommend a few pairs. However, they fit in three categories. The first is a Classic Pair, a pair that has classic styling for each guy (note that each guy has a different opinion on each of these, that’s what makes UNB so great). Next is a romantic pair, one you could wear on a date with someone you have a long lasting relationship. Lastly is erotic, something designed to rock the world of your partner you have had or just met. Here are our recommendations.

Classic Picks

The Bottom Drawer: For my classic pick, I’m going to go with Kiniki’s Stretch Cotton Micro Brief. It’s a classic cut bikini with some skimpiness added with it’s low cut and ¾ back. Cotton also comes to mind when I think of classic and these are a 95% cotton and 5% elastane. The 5% elastane makes a big difference and gives these a snugger fit than you’d get with just cotton. Of course you have to have a Valentine color available, which is red for this pair.

UNB Tim – Xtremen 51388 Microfiber Boxer Briefs Color Gray – Classic doesn’t mean it can’t be sexy. I love the look of long boxer briefs. They gray of these are a classic color. These can be worn under jeans or casual. It can also be under a suit. While not red or black, I think you don’t have to go with those two colors to make Valentine’s Day.

UNBSandy – Black Silk Heart Boxers by Royal Silk – It’s just fun and sexy to lounge about in a pair of well-fitting and flattering silk boxers covered with bright red hearts! Some guys (of a certain age) like the less-form-fitting aspect of boxers and after all — the silk adds a nice profile!

UNB Bryce – My classic pair is the Saxx Fuse Boxer with the Pineapple Bomb print. To me classic is a pair that would be perfect any day of the week. Saxx is perfect for that, extremely comfortable and designed to help keep your equipment away from your legs. I love the Pineapple Bomb print because the pineapple is fun, and the color is bright.

Romantic Picks

The Bottom Drawer: For a romantic pair of underwear I normally lean towards a thong. Let’s go with a skimpy thong that will show off all your assets. The Joe Snyder JS11 Rio Thong is what I’m going to recommend. It has nice narrow sides and tail and a u-shape pouch that just keeps everything contained. You’ll get maximum exposure with this selection. For an added bonus these can double as swimwear. It’s available in several good colors for Valentine’s Day.

UNB Tim – Gregg Homme Rococo Briefs – Romance comes in many forms. Lace to me is super sexy and romantic. These briefs are made for a romantic evening out. After a candle lit dinner to come home and surprise your partner with these. They are skimpy but not too skimpy. Perfect for a long make out session with your partner!

UNBSandy – Magic Silk Silk Knit Lo Rise Bikini — nothing says romance like red silk and these knitted silk lo rise briefs are an invitation to a romantic evening no one can refuse! Slip these on and send the message that you don’t intend to wear them very long! These undies feel great whether you’re the one wearing them or the one exploring!

UNB Bryce – Pistol Pete Metallica Zip Front Brief. For me romantic underwear is something you want to wear around a special person. What can be more romantic than wearing gold underwear! The pair also features a fully functional zipper on the front for easy access when you need it.,20497.html



Fetish Recommendations

The Bottom Drawer: Ertoic for me is more sheerness, enhancing pouches, and probably put g-strings here too. None of which I have many of or wear very often and not real wild considering some erotic options out there. I’m going to recommend one that I don’t actually own for this one, but it’s a quality brand that I have several pairs from. I’m going with Bodyaware’s Italian Transparent Tactel Tanga. I have their regular Italian Tanga (not listed anymore) made of the same material and it is sheer and shows everything. The Tactel Tanga is available is some pastel colors that would work great for Valentine’s Day.

UNB Tim – Maskulo Rubber Look Briefs – Suppose you want to get a little wild on Valentine’s day? Something fetish looking but easy to take care of? Maskulo has the Rubber look briefs. Made out of an 80% nylon, 20% spandex / lycra / elastane with a solid waistband. This pair has a detachable codpiece, that they are known for making. The back is a zipper. Yeah, a zipper!  No matter what you are in the mood for that evening, you are covered (Sorry for the pun). Mix this with a harness and some restraints and you have 50 shades of fun.

Underweardude-If I was going for something a bit..different on Valentine’s day, I’d go for one of Pikante’s Castro Thongs. The front pouch is really more like a sleeve so you can show your significant other exactly what you’ve got to work with.

UNBSandy – Good Devil Red Jockstrap — it’s red, backless, with a sheer see-thru pouch — really — what else could a Valentine need?


UNB Bryce– Gregg Homme Shackled Briefs. What says fetish more than chains and leather? These briefs have a leather like look with chains that hang down over the pouch. Maybe wearing these will help excite your partner into trying something new in the bedroom.


These are a few suggestions from our guys. We hope you find a pair you like or it inspires you to find something perfect for your Valentine’s Day celebration.
