So if you have any interest in underwear, you know who Andrew Christian is. Hell, if you’re  gay man, you know who that is. I’m sure anyone who has stumbled upon this has probably worn at least a pair of their underwear. If not, I’m hear to review them overall, as a brand.

So, they’re selection of underwear isn’t exactly diverse. Most of their stuff is rather tame, and once you buy one of their trunks, you’ve pretty much worn them all. Yes, they don’t have a huge diverse selection of items that are drastically different, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t great. While they aren’t the most extreme, they are extremely comfortable. Andrew Christian has some of the most comfortable underwear I have ever worn. Most days, I forget that I’m wearing anything at all. Which is a plus for some thongs. While a lot of thongs are super sexy, some days you can tell you are wearing them. This is not even remotely the case with Andrew Christian. So it’s definitely something I would recommend you check out. Their thongs are so freaking comfortable. So if you’ve never worn one, they are definitely a good company to start with.

Like most underwear companies, they can be a little pricey. There isn’t much to say on that except they can be expensive. Though, if you sign up for their mailing list, there is a good chance at some point during the month, a sale will roll along. So sign up and you’ll probably see a sale.

As a brand, they attempt to sell sex. Some times they succeed, some times they fail. While their models are theoretically sexy, if you’re into muscle men, it doesn’t always hit the spot. Most of their models start to blend together because their isn’t a huge diversity their either. Like, Andrew Christian, give me some skinnier models or something. Let’s see some diversity there. Also, they produce videos regularly to showcases new designs. They have been doing this for a few years now. When they first started doing this several years ago, I loved them. They were new, fresh, and extremely sexy. Several years later, I’m bored. I’m not sure if I’m bored because I want them to be a little more risqué, or just because I’ve been watching them for years. They just don’t seem to have the same pizzaz that they use to have. It mostly just feels like some sexy men sitting around in underwear, all the time. Like sell me a little more fantasy or something. Or at least just make the jump to porn. I’m not sure what would solve their problem here, it just doesn’t seem to be that great anymore.

Overall, I think they are a great brand when it comes to comfort and style. Their company branding in general could use a little help in my opinion. They seem to focus on the cliche adonis of the gay community, which we all know is only a small portion. So, if anyone from the company stumbles upon this, show the community as a whole, not just the WeHo  boys.

So, definitely check them out!

The Stigma Of Men’s Underwear

Raise your hand if you’re gay! *insert emoji of man raising hand*

Now that we’ve gotten that little tidbit out of the way, let’s talk about men’s underwear. Over the years it has changed a lot. Once upon a time they basically wrapped themselves up in cotton that covered their entire body, kind of like a mummy. It was completely unattractive and just so unflattering. I wouldn’t touch that would someone else’s penis.

Over the years, it has gotten smaller and smaller until present day, well like the last few decades, we have the thong and jockstrap. Also, the not talked about smaller fetish microwear. As a teenager I fell in love with thongs. They were so freaking comfortable and it felt like heaven was hugging my body in all the right places. It just squeezed me tight and old me everything was okay with my life.

After I discovered my love of underwear that most men didn’t wear, I instantly realized that I was the odd man out. Hearing what other people would say in the dark corners of the world, well not so dark. It was like they stood out in the middle of the street with a bullhorn yelling about how gay and effeminate it was for a man to wear a thong. Well, guess what motherfuckers you’re wrong!

Over the years I learned it had nothing to do with any of that. Though I knew this, it didn’t make me feel any better. People still judged me for my choice of underwear and fetish. They looked down on me like I was less of a man or something. Like my choice in underwear somehow removed my penis from my body. This is something that happens quite often in the good ole US of A. Where everybody has sex, but god forbid you actually talk about it, or even act like it exists.

In other parts of the world, wearing something smaller like a thong, or jock, is much more acceptable. Men wear speedos to the beach, and men also wear thongs to the beach. I, for one, have never seen a man in a thong on the beach here in the United States. Mostly because we are a bunch of puritanical assholes who think we are a bunch of saints.

Slowly people’s minds are changing, and they are becoming more used to men wearing thongs and fetish wear, but it’s not changing fast enough. I still am weary about going out in public in a thong. By public I mean the beach. I wear thongs in public often, under clothes.

So if you are one of those people who wear thong swimsuits, go out and show it off for the world to see. Fuck what everyone thinks. It’s your body, do with it as you please. I know I’m still struggling with it, but one day I will be able to strut on the beach proudly in a sexy thong. Just be who you are and let the rest of the fuckers just disappear, they don’t matter. Go forth my thong lovers.

Maybe I should just move to Europe and wear this!
