Tell our readers about you:
My name is Matt and i’m a 39 year old gay male from PA who has been happily partnered to the same goofball for 14 years now. We are extremely opposite in the underwear department, he is a 3 pack hanes boxer brief kind of guy and I have a new package of thongs, jocks and fun briefs arriving in the mail at least once a month! The hubby likes to tease me in front of some of our closer friends about my obsessive underwear fetish and shopping addiction, and overstuffed dresser drawers of undies but I have become very comfortable with it in recent years & I welcome the attention. In recent years I have also started sporting speedos around close friends and public beaches and have gotten more comfortable in my own skin the older I get.
When did you first discover underwear?
I probably first discovered underwear when I was 14 or so. I remember going “back to school” shopping with the fam and seeing a 2xist y-back thong that I shamefully stole at the time as I was too embarrassed to ask my parents to buy and was before I had a job and could drive and buy my own things. I also remember the first time an International Male catalog came in the mail around the same time period and flipping thru all underwear and swim suits, it made for good “material” back then as the internet was just evolving, and any porn site on dial up modem took forever just to download pictures let alone videos lol. I also would flip thru Mens Exercise magazines gawking at all the muscle guys in their posing straps and short shorts :p
What was the first pair of good underwear you bought? What made you buy that pair?
God so hard to remember but I think one of the first pairs I can remember buying on my own was n2n titan jock & thong with the snapping pouch. So hot and still have both to this day! I got the thong in black and the jock in beige. I think the erotic design made be gravitate to them. I am a HUGE fan of having sex while wearing underwear, and these were perfect for that wether you are a top of bottom ;p
How did this first pair influence your journey into the world of men’s underwear?
Very early on I met an underwear bud in an aol chat room back in the 90’s who was big into spandex and told me about spandexguys.com I have not been on that site or posted in years but I started trying more and more spandex/lycra brands like joe snyder, n2n, & malepower at the time.
What are your current favorite styles? What style do you wear most?
I am mainly a brief guy for every day wear but do wear jocks a good bit too. My thong pics on IG seem to be some of the most liked but I actually own fewer thongs and wear them less than any other type except for boxer briefs. I think I own like 4 pair of boxer briefs and rarely wear them. Calvin Klein and 2xist are some of my go to basic every day briefs. The steel micro hip brief Calvins are one of my favs, so comfy.
What are some of your favorite pairs in your underwear drawer?
Right now I am a huge fan of Andrew Christian’s Massive collection. I love all the fun prints, fabrics and anatomical pouch. The buck buddy print is my favorite for now. I’m really digging Skull & Bones right now too. I only have their jocks and have yet to try some briefs but they are on my shopping list. I’m a huge fan of Nasty Pigs jocks and singlets, the look and persona of the brand is hot to me. Have quite a few snout caps too.
Are you open to friends or partners about your love of underwear? If you have a partner do they encourage your love of underwear?
The hubby is well aware of my underwear fetish and enjoys it very much. I don’t really talk about my love of underwear with most friends but there are always those few close gays friends who somehow know everything about you ;p
Has wearing great underwear boosted your confidence?
Underwear is all about how it makes you feel. I tend to feel confident no matter what kind of underwear I’m wearing. I think confidence comes more in your body than the underwear but I definitely like to keep things exciting and fun with my underwear choices and love always feeling sexy with fun undies
