Unreal Underwear Myths Unmasked

Whether you're a boxer brief loyalist or prefer the classic boxers, you've likely heard your fair share of myths and misconceptions about men's underwear.

We get it; underwear isn't typically a topic of everyday conversation, so it’s hard to get to the bottom of these myths. You don’t exactly ask if going commando is healthy or not at Thanksgiving dinner…

That's why we're here to set the record straight and debunk some of the most common men's underwear myths. Get ready to laugh a little and learn a lot as we bust these underwear myths wide open.

Myth: Tight Underwear Increases Fertility

Truth: Super Tight ≠ Super Sperm

Sorry, but tighty-whities won't give you super sperm. While it's true that excessively tight underwear can raise the temperature of your testicles, potentially impacting sperm production, it's unlikely to make a significant difference unless you're wearing something truly constricting 24/7.

Your best bet for optimal fertility is a balanced diet, regular exercise, and, yes, comfortable underwear.

"Wear audacious underwear under the most solemn business attire."

- H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Myth: Going Commando Is Healthier

Truth: Please put on some underwear

We get it; the thought of letting it all hang free might be tempting. However, going commando isn't necessarily healthier. Your underwear serves a purpose beyond modesty; it provides support and helps wick away moisture, preventing irritation and chafing.

So, unless you're a die-hard commando enthusiast, we recommend sticking with your favorite Drawlz for a healthier, more comfortable crotch.

“Men want the same thing from their underwear that they want from women: a little bit of support, and a little bit of freedom.”

- Jerry Seinfeld

Myth: All Fabrics Are Created Equal

Truth: Different activities call for different fabrics

Cotton underwear may be comfortable and versatile enough for everyday wear, but it's not your only option. Micro modal, for example, offers a silky, breathable alternative that's perfect for sedentary careers, lounging around, or intimate moments.

Or, if you lead a more active lifestyle or have a more active career, your best bet is lightweight, fast-drying nylon boxer briefs.

Whatever your day or lifestyle calls for, the key is to choose underwear made from high-quality fabrics that wick moisture away, prevent odors, and feel great against your skin - something every pair of Drawlz boxer briefs has in common.

“This morning when I put on my underwear I could hear the fruit-of-the-loom guys laughing at me.” 

- Rodney Dangerfield

Myth: Your Underwear Will Last Forever

Truth: When your underwear gets riddled with holes, toss ‘em

Hate to break it to you, but even the best-quality underwear won't last forever. Over time, elastic wears out, fabrics break down, and colors fade. It's essential to refresh your underwear drawer regularly.

There’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to some new, stylish, and comfortable Drawlz boxer briefs once in a while, especially if your old underwear has got to go!

“Passwords are like underwear: you don’t let people see it, you should change it very often, and you shouldn’t share it with strangers.”

- Chris Pirillo

Myth: Underwear Size Doesn't Matter

Truth: In this case, size does matter

There’s no “motion of the ocean” BS when it comes to your underwear size. Size definitely matters when it comes to underwear. Wearing the wrong size can lead to discomfort, chafing, and even visible lines under your clothes. Take the time to measure yourself and find the perfect underwear size. Trust me; it makes a world of difference in how you feel and look.

“Humility is like underwear; essential, but indecent if it shows.”

- Helen Nielsen

There you have it – the truth behind some of the most common men's underwear myths. The moral of the story; Don't believe everything you hear, especially when it comes to your Drawlz and bawlz. Whether it's about fertility, fabric, or fashion, I hope I finally shed some light on some of the many mysteries of men's underwear.

Until next time,


Founder, Drawlz
