See Real Guys In Underwear – Poll Results
Thanks to everyone who voted in the Real Guys Poll. We know this is just as important to you guys as it is to us at UNB. We love talking to you guys and sharing your opinions. I will say some of you didn’t hold back on your comments. We love that, no matter which side of the poll you voted on.
Why did we do this poll?
I am not an underwear model and most of the UNB guys aren’t either. Like our old slogan said we are real guys who love real underwear. The only one of us who could be an underwear model is Beau Briefs! He looks amazing in his pictures he posts on Twitter.
In the past, we have run more real guys in our shoots. Looking back in 2011-2012. We got some hits from readers and people in the industry about our models. But, I wanted more realistic looking guys. It’s my mission for ALL guys to wear what they feel the best wearing. Why should a bigger guy not wear a thong? Or a smaller guy not wear bikinis? Or boxers or whatever they want.
On our reader Survey, we ask this question and you guys want a mix of models, real guys and up and coming models. We firmly agree with this mix. We got it confirmed with this poll
90% of you guys support having real guys in pictures. 7% want to see underwear models and 3% were undecided. This means you guys really want to see real guys. Many of you talked about increasing body image among guys. That we are not all built like models. Also, it would be great to see what underwear looks like on a real guy. To see the actual fit.
97% of you would Support UNB in showing real guys in underwear. Only 3% said they wouldn’t. One of the guys who is on the model size stated that if we started to show real guys he probably wouldn’t read the site any more. We aren’t talking about taking all the pictures and making them real guys. But, do want to show a more realitic image of men in underwear. So we would have a mix of real guys, amature models, and models.
The last question was would you participate in a crowdfunding campaign to show real guys. 62% said no. I was expecting a closer division between yes and no. The reason this is imporant to ask, photo shoots take money. We have to pay the photog, models and sometimes rent a location. We simply can’t take on the burdon alone of doing shoots. With out support from you guys, we won’t do as many shoots.
We’d love to hear more on this topic. From guys on both sides of the arugment.
