For most women I know, underwear is a sacred thing. Indeed, for most girls I know, they can never have too much. It can be silk or satin. Lacy or frilly. I probably don’t even know enough adjectives to describe the different types. For guys it’s different though.
You see, men very rarely go underwear shopping. Sure, there might be an occasion where we see something funny and decide to buy it on a whim but we don’t go through aisles looking at pair after pair. In fact, a lot of us would be happy just buy a generic pack of three. Of course, in the metrosexual world that we live in, there are those that want the brand names. I mean, some guys really want to have Calvin Klein written a few inches from your genitalia and to those guys, fair does. But as long as they are comfortable and they are in reasonably good condition, then that’s usually fine. I certainly don’t buy underwear with the intention of feeling sexy. But then again, I don’t post pictures of myself in my underwear on Instagram like some guys do.
It’s interesting in a way though why girls pay so much attention to something that no one else can see. I mean, I’m not complaining. Some of the stuff I’ve seen from La Senza in the past has made my eyes nearly popped out. Maybe it’s because women’s underwear is more substantial. As women wear more of it, it takes on a greater value. Obviously there is the element that if you look good, you feel good. And I guess that in itself is why men don’t get as excited by underwear. I mean, you either have acceptable underwear or budgie smugglers which are only acceptable if you are a 70s porn star with a Magnum PI moustache. I’ve definitely never been Ina situation where I’ve looked at myself in my boxers and thought I look sexy. But, maybe that’s a confidence thing?
What do you think? Why do guys care less about underwear? How often do you shop for it or shop for your partners? I’m interested to hear your thoughts.
