On our Brief Talk podcast, we talked about why guys don’t talk about underwear. We all have a blast on the podcast talking about all sorts of topics. Sometimes we go off on tangents and get deeper into the matter and talk about undies like it’s normal. For me, it is, I have been in the industry for 12 years and plan to be in it a lot longer. 

The general public and I’m sure many of you reading don’t sit down and talk about topics in underwear. I don’t know many who say, “Hey, I’m wearing this Gregg Homme thong, and man, you gotta try it.” Or, “Man, it’s so hot out there, and this cotton undies suck, what do you wear to keep cool?” or my personal favorite, “Why is men’s underwear crossing into the feminine side?”

Our podcast, I think, is becoming more popular because you get to listen in on a bunch of guys having a conversation. But it would be awesome if guys would start having these conversations too. I’m not talking straight guys but gay guys also. In my personal life, I never really talk undies with the friends I have. I don’t know if it’s just a personal topic by society standards or if guys are just embarrassed to talk thongs and bikinis. 

This is not an easy topic to tackle because everyone I have talked to; there doesn’t seem to be an easy solution. It’s not like we can sit down and broach the subject with friends. 

If you want to talk Undies here are a few suggestions

Create an undies account on a social media site – Join Twitter or IG and start posting and interacting with the underwear community. The guys out there are some of the most amazing guys. 

Start by commenting on accounts you like – Once you join and find guys who share your taste in undies, comment, and say, “I love those bikinis, that color is amazing.” Do something more than “That’s HOT.” Don’t offend people with rude comments when you first meet them. After you get to know them, then move to more risque comments. 

Share your pictures as well – This is a hard one for me, I lack body confidence to show off my undies. I am working up the courage to share my pics. This is easier to do on Twitter; you don’t have to share pics like on IG. 

Post questions you have about undies – Start conversations by asking questions to people following you. Don’t be passive and sit back and read what is being said. You can jump in a convo or start your own. 

Here is how to talk undies, as times change, I hope we will have real conversations soon with our friends IRL.

  1. I tqlk with my buds all the time about underwear. Be it something i just bought, a sale I saw (or bought from), what I’m wearing or what they are wearing when i see the waist band when they bend over. All my friends know I’m an underwear freak. And I encourage them to talk about underwear with everyone. The only thing I don’t do is post anything on social media. Reason being work. I’m currently looking for a job and don’t need a potential boss seeing that part of my life. Yet. LOL and I have had people I have working for me, creep on my FB and found enough about me then they need to. But I agree. Keep the convo going on underwear and lets get these guys wearing something other then FTL or Hanes boxer briefs (that are the wrong size or need to be thrown out).
