Guys come to this blog for some of the best underwear on the planet. From thongs to boxer briefs and everything in between, is what you guys want. Lately, it’s been a lot of thongs and skimpier gear. Bikinis have always been popular but there has been a big resurgence in thongs. This is not just gay guys but straight guys are loving the thong. So, you have a great underwear collection, but want to branch out a little, what gear is next? Glad you asked. I started my journey with undies but love a lot. Here are a few of my favorites. I have them divided up for guys who want to step out and try the waters. To those who have some experince, to those who are into it or just want to jump in the deep end:

Swim Briefs – Intermediate

A natural transgression from undies is swim briefs. Yes, we have out annual Swim Brief Challenge, but not everyone is convinced to try them. Imagine how amazing your bikinis and briefs feel every day. Now imagine you could have that same feeling on the beach. Amazing support along with a fit you love. Try the traditional Speedo and TYR brands most swimmers and divers wear. These won’t show off too much for a beginner and has a great fit. After you try them move on to more brads.

Singlets/Spandex – Moderate

This is my all-time favorite. Singlets that is but we include spandex as well. I currently have about 15-20 singles. They were not the first spandex gear I bought but they are my favorite. The look and feel of them make them amazing. Mix that with the fact you don’t have to wear anything under them. Granted, you could wear a jock, brief or thong under them. Singlets are no longer for HS and college wrestling. It’s entered the world as fetishwear. You can get the full cut collegiate style to cut-outs in the front or back for fun time. It all depends on what you like.

Spandex includes more than just singlets. Runners, shorts, and shirts are other gear to look at buying. Since the introduction of UnderArmour, compression and just workout gear made from spandex are having a renaissance of sorts. It’s made it main stream to rock a spandex shirt to the gym. Or wear compression shorts to the gym under your shorts. One reason I love this gear is that it gives you a lot of support when working out. There are more and more brands to try. UA is one of the most expensive but check around for different brands.

Fetishwear – Advanced

Last is fetishwear. I”m not talking underwear fetishwaear. I’m talking leather, rubber, and latex. Leather has been around for almost forever I think. It’s been relegated to gay men but the straight world is taking notice and starting to get into harnesses, chaps and jocks. Plus, you’re no longer a freak for wearing leather. I say go have fun with it! I have a few pieces and want more. Just be warned it’s addictive and way more than undies.

Start small in this with a harness or jock. Then see how you like it and grow the collection. Make sure you involve your significant other in the fetishwear. If you don’t have a SO, well then go explore and have fun. Once you get into looking at fetishwear it will grow exponentially. Let that side you resist come out and play!


  1. If you love undies, branch out and explore more
  2. Get competitive style swim briefs if you want to step out on a limb before committing
  3. To go a bit wilder, explore spandex. Singlets, runners, shorts, and more! It’s not too expensive to buy.
  4. If you want to plunge into the deep end, go right or the leather/latex/rubber gear. Let that freak flag fly high and proud.
  5. Don’t let anyone discourage you from trying something you want to wear. Go have fun regardless of size, shape, or body type. Be who you are!
