The truth about going commando for men

Freeball or Drawlz? The Truth About Going Commando for Men

Bare Cheeks vs Boxer Briefs

Ever wondered if going commando is worth it? Maybe you've pondered if men really need to wear underwear in the first place?

In other words, should men free ball or wear Drawlz?

To be blunt, going commando is nasty as hell, and this ultimate guide to not going commando will explore the reasons why freeballing harms and embarasses you in ways you don’t even realize.

Plus, if you’re really attached to the feeling of not wearing underwear, you’ll also find the best boxer briefs that feel like you’re not wearing anything at all at the end of this guide. Let’s bounce.

1. No Protection or Support

When you go commando, you're leaving your prized possessions unprotected. There's no layer to prevent friction or irritation and absolutely no support for your precious cargo. It’s like hanging a chandelier in the back of a moving truck and driving down a BMX track. Your goods deserve better than that.

2. Stains and Wet Spots on Pants

It’s one thing to be out and about feeling confident in your outfit and notice a sweat stain or wet spot on your pants. You can head to the bathroom, adjust the drip, and move on.

It’s a whole nother thing to go the whole day and night thinking sliced bread ain’t got s#!t on you, only to come home and see that a glaringly obvious sweat spot (or many) has been there the whole time.

Going commando leaves you exposed to embarrassing moments like these, whereas taking a second to slip into a pair of boxer briefs would have absorbed and hidden any moisture, avoiding this situation entirely.

Pro-Tip: Quality underwear will absorb and wick away moisture, but even the best can get stained by sweat over time. Read our guide on how to get stains out of underwear to bring your briefs back to their original glory.

3. Chafing

There are few things, if anything, more uncomfortable than skin chafing, especially in the groin area. The indescribable discomfort, rashes, and redness from chafing can make each step feel like your thighs are slabs of bologna rubbing on sandpaper.

Going commando can lead to uncomfortable rubbing and chafing, especially during physical activities or long days on the move. Spare yourself the discomfort and opt for the silky smooth embrace of Drawlz boxer briefs instead.

Pro-Tip: Learn all the ways that boxer briefs prevent chafing in this guide to anti-chafing underwear.

4. Hygiene

Going commando may feel liberating in the moment, but you’re setting yourself up for a world of hurt later when it comes to hygiene.

Without the protective barrier of boxer briefs, you're rolling out the red carpet for bacteria to fester and wreak havoc down under. This can pretty quickly lead to overwhelming odor, unsightly rashes, and even skin infections. Keep things fresh and clean with Drawlz.

Are there any situations where going commando is acceptable?

Swimming or lounging at home are really the only acceptable commando situations due to hygiene and comfort concerns, but we recommend micro modal underwear for lounging around due to the luxuriously soft feel.

Can going commando cause testicular pain?

Yes, going commando can potentially cause testicular pain. Without the support provided by underwear, the testicles are left to dangle freely, which can lead to discomfort, especially during physical activity or prolonged periods of standing or walking. Additionally, the lack of protection increases the risk of accidental impacts or injuries to the delicate groin area, resulting in pain or discomfort.

Can going commando cause problems?

Yes, going commando can increase the risk of odor, irritation, skin infections, and other health issues due to lack of protection and hygiene.
