I was a Tighty Whitey guy most of my life. Never really cared for them but they had some practicality.
For the past 5 years I never wear any underwear on my off days as I love the comfort and freedom. Usually just a loose pair of shorts or sweats on colder days for warmth when I can't be naked.
My work can be active sometimes and Commando doesn't always work. Too much pinching and rubbing to be comfortable.
For me, the best of both worlds was a brand called "Obviously". Underwear from down under!
They have a nice large pouch to keep things out front and out of the way, a great natural feel if you have the need to wear something.
They are totally anatomically correct! Best case scenario if you need to wear something.
Those Aussies did it right!
Ditched the undies around 14 or 15. Around that time, I was throwing a pair of underwear in the hamper so my mother wouldn't get suspicious! hahahaha Finally just told her, "I'll do my own laundry," and she was really happy about that. Haven't worn any since and only have a couple pairs of thongs that my wife gave me as a gag gift. I used them a couple times when we visited our nude beach and the rangers were citing nude sunbathers. I put them on if I got outta my chair so I was "legally" covered. They just sit in my drawer for sentimental reasons.
It wasn't until a few years ago that I started freeballing. It was one of the best things I ever did, the very first day I left the undies off the freedom and fresh air was great. As others have said I am just sorry that I didn't do it sooner.
I started freeballing late in life. I just decided not to wear undies any more and destroyed every pair that I owned. On holiday I wear short skirts and wraps when I can't be nude. Again nothing under.
Did you get rid of them all at once or gradually.
I reduced my supply in stages and after I found that no charity wanted the first batch, I destroyed the rest in stages.
Very liberating, especially when I had finally destroyed the last pair, almost a year after I started the reduction,
I guess I will be the contrarian . . . I tried it last week. no undies under my levies.
the rough cloth polished me sore. not waiting for callouses to build :))
back to my briefs the next day.
wife has been undies free for yrs, except for the monthly need. she's 50 and so looking forward to the total end of undies.
