MuslNorganLikr saidNow that summer's arriving, does anybody here "go commando" (aka "freeball")? Sometimes I like this because it can make "the goods" feel cooler, but I'm not a fanatic about it. (Got plenty of boxers and briefs in my dresser 'cause I'm not partial to one or the other.)
For coolness in Florida heat I wear baggy, low-on-the-hip cargo shorts and loose boxers (not boxer briefs or knit boxers, but thin woven). For one thing my stuff rubbing against the rough inside seams of the cargoes is uncomfortable. Second, commando isn't very hygienic, whereas I can get at least a second day's wear from my outer pants by wearing undies. Third, the loose shorts & boxers feel pretty much like freeballing anyway. BTW, for snugger slacks with a higher crotch I wear briefs, because I don't like hanging down a pant leg.
Funny story, and maybe a fourth reason to wear boxers: one night a lesbian friend of ours drove by to take us out to dinner. She was at our backdoor in her car when we came down from the condo, my partner carrying some oversized trash for the dumpster located behind double utility doors outside. It's a very high container, and he had to reach up on his tiptoes to throw this heavy bag over the edge (normally an internal building chute conveys smaller bags down to it from above).
As he's stretching upwards, his cargo shorts dropped to his ankles, his bare ass gleaming white in her car headlights, a bright full moon if there ever was one, then his balls visible as he bent over to hike his shorts back up. The stunned look on her face sitting just five feet away behind the steering wheel was priceless, not to mention his face red with shame, and we still joke about it some 2 years later. He goes commando a lot less frequently these days.
