Maybe this is inspired by my being scandalised watching Uti prance around the Big Brother house in his boxer-briefs, on day 87 of the just-concluded Big Brother All Stars. It got me thinking… not because I was turned on in anyway. His legs are too skinny for me. With my own small thighs it would be like stick-fighting in bed.
Anyway, the point here is this: do you care how the package is wrapped? Or is it just enough that there is a package in the first place? Men these days go on about how we African women get too comfortable in a relationship and ditch the sexy lingerie and sleepwear for the large wrappers that we tie across our chests and the large full briefs that would make your granny proud. Some even give these as excuses for why they have strayed outside their relationships. But no one is talking about some of the faded, ill-fitting, raggedy things that the men wear, as though women don’t like or need good visuals also. If the men are ‘strongly requesting’ that we keep it sexy and appealing to them under our clothes, we can do the same.
So, do you want your man hanging free and loose in boxers, or do you want the family jewels to be held securely in place, away from stray zippers, by tighty-whities/briefs? Are the boxer-briefs the perfect compromise or would you rather he forego underwear altogether? Me I like free and easy access from all angles… but sometimes the boxer-briefs can present the package like the window display of a high-end boutique—you may not want to (or couldn’t even afford to) shop, but you’re tempted to go in.
