Brief Tale – Find out how @hotguyntown got into undies
Looking back, it all began with a quick glance through People magazine – briskly skipping over the standard Hollywood gossip puff-pieces and by chance opening to a full page ad for Jockey underwear with Jim Palmer. I was transfixed and energized by the image of the all-American jock in a pair of skimpy Elance briefs. For a second I wondered if anyone would notice if I tore the page out of the magazine, but I couldn’t resist. I knew I had to study this style, so different from my plaid boxer shorts and superman underoos. It showed off his package and firm round ass and I wanted to see more and know what it felt like to wear those briefs.
Going to the Y was a weekly event in my family; my dad would workout in the weight room and I would head off to the pool. I started noticing that guys were wearing something other than briefs or boxers when working out. Most of them, including my dad, were wearing a standard bike jock that started off white and quickly began to fade due to sweat and age. When I went off swimming, I saw the older boys practicing their laps in their speedos. And at that moment, I realized this was the perfect way to show off an athletic man’s body – tight gloriously round butts encased in spandex, bulges prominent in the front. I couldn’t help but stare, and definitely wanted to wear one of those as soon as I could.
And then finally, the momentous occasion, the first time I received an issue of the International Male catalog. The old joke held true for me – somehow I.M. knew I was a gay boy before I did. I don’t know how they knew, but I loved it, studied it, and spent way too much time planning which styles I had to have. I never ordered anything, but it was nice to know there were other guys out there who were into the same thing I was. Plus I knew where I could order pirate inspired fashion if I wanted to. A lace front ruffly shirt was always in-style in the I.M. catalog. I started out with CK, then moved on to 2xist and then moved on to Andrew Christian, Timoteo and all those fun brands that make up my ever growing collection.
