WHAT IS THE FLY ON UNDERWEAR USED FOR, ANYWAYS?

Not many men know this, but the fly on men's underwear isn't purely decorative, but rather a feature that gives men easier access to their member when nature calls. Yeah, I fell face first into an existential crisis when I found this out, too.

Just like anything else, flies come in different variations with the most recent development being the horizontal fly - and you just found the ultimate guide explaining what it is, how to use it, advantages and disadvantages, and end with the best underwear bearing this extremely useful fly feature.

THREE TYPES OF UNDERWEAR FLIES

An underwear fly is the access point of an underwear pouch and there are two more options aside from the horizontal fly; vertical fly and no fly.

WHAT IS A HORIZONTAL FLY?

A horizontal fly is sewn across the contour pouch, creating an easy access point from the top and better support throughout the day, a crucial element that makes any pair of boxer briefs the most comfortable underwear.

WHAT IS A VERTICAL FLY?

A vertical fly is sewn down the side of the pouch, creating an access point on the left, right, or center. This results in less support when worn and doesn't save any time at all.

WHAT IS NO FLY UNDERWEAR?

There is no fly and therefore no convenient way to do your thing. You want to avoid brands with no fly boxer shorts as they're only found in your Grandpa's underwear drawer.

IS A HORIZONTAL FLY BETTER?

Absolutely; a horizontal fly makes it easier to "get a hold of things", helps reduce dribble, brings greater definition to your assets while eliminating the risk of unexpected slip outs, and is more breathable seeing as the structure allows heat to easily escape.

HOW TO USE HORIZONTAL FLY UNDERWEAR

It's pretty straightforward - just reach in through the fly, grab what you need, leave the rest behind, and drain the main vein. When the job is done, you can reduce dribble by sliding the bottom of your banana against the top of the fly as it slips back in.

ADVANTAGES OF A HORIZONTAL FLY

Aside from the quick and easy access, the design of this functional fly has a plethora of other advantages and features when it comes to comfort, style, and longevity.

QUICK AND EASY ACCESSIBILITY

Albeit the most obvious benefit, it is the most useful. Instead of awkwardly reaching in from the side as with a vertical fly or just pulling your drawers down altogether with the no fly option, the horizontal access allows for both a quick draw and quick holster.

LESS DRIBBLE

The dreaded dribble; the bane of many men's existence. As I mentioned above, you can reduce the amount of these soggy stowaways by sliding the bottom of the big guy against the top of the pouch as you pack things up.

BREATHABILITY AND COMFORT

Made with no overlap flex fit flatlock seams and a soft wide waist band, all Drawlz men's underwear form securely around the waist and thighs without an uncomfortable tightness in the groin to provide more room for the boys to be free.

ACCENTUATES YOUR ASSETS

While the vertical option has two overlapping panels that flattens your package, the seams layers of panels used to make a horizontal fly are shaped into a supportive contour pouch to present your frontal profile in a way that brings out the best side of your front side with clear definition.

NO SURPRISE APPEARANCES

I'll leave it at this; the construction of the fly makes it physically impossible for you to have the male equivalent of a Janet Jackson Superbowl moment. In other words, the beast will comfortably roam free but can not escape the enclosure.

LESS WEAR AND TEAR

Seeing as you can just reach down without having to pull the whole front of your drawers down to do your business, there's less wear and tear on the waistband and stretchability of the boxers or briefs overall.

Drawlz Tipz: Aside from a more comfortable bathroom experience, the position of the pouch opening also makes the boxers more breathable. As the heat from everyday activities builds in your Drawlz, the opening at the top also serves as a vent for this heat to escape. Less heat = less moisture = less irritation = more comfort = more confidence.

Drawbacks

To be honest, the only drawback about using underwear with a horizontal pouch is that it takes some getting used to; it's easy to forget that you can just reach in and do your thing when you're so used to whipping it all out for the entirety of their lives.

Other than that, there's nothing to lose and much to gain.
