Should Men Wear Boxers or Briefs?

The old boxers vs. briefs debate is back again.

On Sunday night's "Watch What Happens Live" on Bravo, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes asked CNN anchor Anderson Cooper whether he wears boxers or briefs.

He responded, "Don't most guys wear both?"

NeNe said no, adding that she hates briefs.

She's not alone. Many women loathe briefs, associating them either with little boys in their Underoos or old guys who don't know any better.

As for us, we always picture Mike Myers in "Wayne's World" parading around for Cassandra in his tighty whities.

Most guys we know say boxers are more comfortable, so we're really not sure why a guy would choose briefs, other than for sports.

Which style do you think is best?

    I wear Boxer-briefs. Can't stand the sticky-sweaty-ballsack syndrome. I also like the support as well. It's uncomforting to me that my nuts are dangling. Also boxer-briefs don't bunch up as much.

    Also Anderson probably goes commando. Cause he's sexy like that. Really now all I'm going to think about today is Anderson Coopers underwear, on my floor.

    I pick these because they give me comfort and the simple fact of having my boys supported instead of flapping around and all that. Also its got nothing to do about feeling like a man in fact that is the most dumbest thing ever said. personally you are wearing what you want, after all its your body your package.

    I have both briefs and boxers- but honestly prefer wearing briefs. I used to always put boxers on when getting in bed- but now tend to stay in the briefs. Luckily my wife doesn't mind, and grabs me no matter which pair I'm wearing.

    boxers to the office - quick access to the package to go to the restroom. briefs for more physical activity or sometimes boxer over a jock to protect the "boys"

    I really like boxers because I feel more like a man with all the other people showing of their boxers by "sagging." Also, my balls get itchy and sweaty when I wear briefs, so I feel uncomfortable when I wear briefs. Does this happen to anyone else?

    The only real choice here is boxer briefs. The comfort and styling of boxers with the support of briefs - they are the only way to go.

    I like briefs when I'm entertaining but I prefer boxer-briefs when I'm at work or (for the most part) out in public.

    Boxers offer no support for a guy and I don't know how any guy could enjoy feeling his sack bouncing back and forth against his inner thighs every time he took a step. I find that to be very uncomfortable.

    So, boxer briefs is my main answer with briefs for my show-off time.

    Boxer briefs - the best of all worlds. Support without constriction, freedom of movement, easy fly access (Jockey Y-front wins this one hands down), smooth profile without "brief lines" (essential under suit pants, highly desirable the rest of the time), flattering to all body types, what's left? Oh yeh, they're ultra comfy and sexy in the hot tub!

    I think it's about what you get used to. I've always worn boxers since i was a kid and I can't get used to briefs or boxer briefs (ive tried). The gym I go to require guys in the sauna and steam room to wear underwear (thank God). More guys wear briefs or boxer briefs. Wish they would wear boxers - nobody wants to see all that.

    If you ask people if they prefer wearing shorts or long pants, they
    will say that it depends (weather, activity etc.)
    Here it is exactly the same. We should not have limits ( i hate this or the other) Both are nice and useful

    Briefs are much more comfortable than boxers. The popularity of boxers with young people is a fad; it has more to do with peer pressure than comfort. Many guys switch back to briefs in college or the military.

    Totally agree with you man. Having joined in the fad myself, am now back in the land of sanity. Not the multiple-layer "training pants" styles from Fruit of the Loom and Hanes, but the only real choice - Jockey y-fronts. Call me a "Jockey junkie".

    I second that, and I am also what you could call a Jockey Junkie and usually wear low rise Jockey Y-front briefs, usually white!

    I wear both. Briefs for when I'm playing sports or out running, sometimes for regular wear. Boxers usually for regular wear though.

    I like the freedom of boxers but briefs feel better to wear. I tried boxer briefs once, hated them.

    Didn't mean to like the comment.

    Anyway, no - I feel like it's "the only choice" because briefs are constricting and uncomfortable.

    Actually I dont care that much, could I see all of the Chippendale's hunks in both just to be certain?

    The study said that men are more comfy in boxers.....soooo, what is the question?

    Boxers are easier to pull off with my teet, um....easier to slip off;
    but briefs look more inviting.

    So, um.... perhaps show me both again?

    Generally I wear boxers. If I'm working out I will wear briefs, but not a fan. Most guys look stupid in briefs unless they have an amazing body (and they know how to size themselves), but how many guys are model perfect?

    I normally go with what feels good and I prefer the snug, warm feel of briefs. .
