Yeah, there's no way I'd give it up just to have simpler decisions on undergarments.

I dont really understand the point of a button on boxers. I never have. Do people really need to safeguard trouser snakes?

Also if society wasnt deadset against progress of any sort I wouldn't even wear boxers outside my house. But no. You damn people just get all aflutter at the thought of someone being free and comfortable. Flip flops and togas for everyone if I ever become emperor. You have all been warned.

Womens' underwear comes in an endless variety of cuts, materials, colors, and having to coordinate with a second undergarment. Dudes have three cuts, one of which is wrong. So we already have the simpler decisions. If you want to reenact the end of Tremors every time you have to pee, that's on you.

Well if you just keep buying the same sized underwear from high school, by the time you get to a certain age, you get some extra tension.

But srsly he's not wrong, if you're going the briefs or boxer-briefs route and have them not-saggy, they're going to produce at least a little pressure on your business, and at least for me that makes aiming and stream integrity a little annoying. It's fine if you've got a well-designed urinal at the right height, but if due to mounting-too-low or poor bowl design, you need to aim for specific spots to avoid backspray, even light tension on the soft-and-danglies can be disruptive.
But you have two hands! (I presume; tell me if I'm wrong) One hand holds elastic down and the other one aims if necessary.
So none of this is an issue if I'm not also navigating the fly of my _pants_. But I need one [more] hand to handle that if the fly of the underwear doesn't roughly line up with it.

Wait, wait, wait. Are you telling me that you're also snaking your snake through the fly of your pants? I have virtually never found that to be a useful technique. I'm pretty much always undoing belt, unbuttoning, and unzipping.

I can't do it that way, pants just fall down, or I now have to hold more things than I have hands for.

Spread your legs and the pants won't slip past your thighs. Also, the stance helps the flow.

I've never found it that complicated. Now, injury to the male genitalia? That sucks real bad.

Still, menstruation, yeast infections, and all of that sound like much more of an overall PITA than the hassles of the bait-and-tackle.

Team Pham.

Mind, I never tried snaking my dick through underwear. Maybe if I lived somewhere with incredibly cold bathrooms, I'd want to keep the skin-exposure down, but eh.

One of the many advantages of being male is that underwear is supposed to be simple, not complex. Ditto for going to the bathroom. (The only exceptions are supposed to be guys wearing complicated protective gear and/or costumes for specialized jobs.) You guys are totally missing out on male privilege.

Well yeah. We flip that around on you. How is fishing out your penis out less irritating?
Further, I am aware that not all members are built the same and in particular can be categorized into showers and growers. My penis is of the latter variety. Now depending on any number of factors, it is not uncommon that in its unexcited state I may find it to be like a little one and a quarter inch nub. Does this never happen to you? If and when it does, do you crane your fist past two flies, and tug it out through the zipper? :shock: Talk about irritating.

See, I find using the fly kind of irritating. I'm usually wearing jeans, and they're usually of the fairly snug and tough variety. The fly on jeans just does not open very far, and it has a metal zipper in it. (And they don't fall down if I undo belt, button, and zipper.) And then there may be the issue of lining up both underwear-fly and pants-fly. Way less hassle to unbutton and unzip.
