Jocks & Thongs in the Locker Room? How much skin should or do you show off?

    I was scrolling around the American Apparel, Universal Gear and International jock websites and saw all of these fashion underwear: jocks, bikinis, thongs, etc. -- all for the minimalistic man. A lot of the underwear in the jock/thong section is fashionable and great for a night out or a night in (icon_biggrin.gif). However...

    Would you consider some of these styles appropriate a gym/locker room setting?
    Given they'll be changing or showering, etc.

    Would you ever wear underwear like this to the gym?
    ...especially if you enjoy skinny or slim-fit jeans where the jeans fit better when your underwear has less fabric.

    I linked them out just in case if they were too explicit for my "age" lol. (twentieth b-day 4/8 icon_biggrin.gif)

    They don't look all that comfortable for working out in.

    I know that from my dance classes, wearing a dance belt (which is similar to a thong with a single strap through the cheeks and a tight pouch in the front) is pretty comfortable -- especially while moving around

    At my university gym it's pretty uncommon to see young guys wearing anything but boxer shorts. Most older guys wear briefs, and I personally wear briefs. I've never seen guys wearing jocks or thongs at the gym, but I wouldn't mind if I did. icon_smile.gif

    No Way would i ever wear something like that to the gym. I work out at a straight gym and i would be looked at like a freak for sporting that in the locker room.

    Those kinds of wear are great, but the locker room at a gym in not appropriate.

    I would however not mind a bit if another guy at my gym was wearing any wares mentioned previously.icon_lol.gif

    Nobody would notice at my gym.

    I would never wear the thong...but then I work assiduously to keep my underwear out of my crack!

    I workout at a very gay friendly gym, and see a lot of jock straps in the lockerroom and speedos in the jacuzzi or sauna. I appreciate a well defined guy showing off his body in a thong or jockstrap.

    I have worn a swimming jock to the gym before simply because I HATE large waistbands on normal size jocks...but that is about it...

    Yeah, I once wore swimming trunks at the gym too, so that I don't stay changing when I go to the pool. icon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gificon_razz.gificon_wink.gif

    I just wear my regular underwear (usually briefs) to the gym. I dont wear my nice/sexy underwear to the gym. Dont want them to get all dingy too quick.
    And I only wear my thong for my bf

    I think that any underwear that says "Papi" around the waistband broadcasts rather more information than anyone in the locker room might want.

    Jock straps are ok, but in these times they do kind of scream gay unless you're an 80 yo. And I personally have never been a fan of thongs. I had this bf once that liked to wear them and I asked him not to wear them around me cause it's a turn off. Regardless of how amazing your body is. But that's only my opinion.

    i wear a jock-strap to the gym because i like to do a lot of running and when your well endowededicon_biggrin.gif it flops around alot and gets annoying. At my Universitys gym alot of guys dont get changed there they just walk back to there dorms and do it there but i change there since i like to go in the morning before class but i wouldnt mind seeing more guys changing in some sexy underwear it might make me go to the gym more often!!!

    I know exactly how you feel. It's the reason behind me finding a gay friendly but not a sex-in-the-stalls-24/7 gym location lol.

    This was too hilarious but why wouldn't I wanna broadcast my papichuloness icon_lol.gif lmao

    Briefs under my gym shorts while working out. Boxers are hard for me to find that have enough room in the thighs.

    A bloody mess... Ouch! What did you do?

    The worse that has happened to me was my nipples started bleeding when I was training for a marathon.
