Boxers, briefs or commando?

Retro Bitches
Originally published on December 17, 2005

This is one of my all time favorite posts. Ladies, sit back and enjoy. *wink*

When it comes to men’s underwear, usually three** words cross our minds: boxers, briefs or commando?

Some women say that a guy’s underwear will disclose what kind of man he really is, but The Book Bitches will be honest and tell you that, whether a guy is wearing “tighty-whities,” “going commando” or “swinging loose,” it’s what’s inside that really matters. *g*

Here are some of our favorite heroes and what they like to wear (or not):

Joe Morelli and Stephanie Plum
Four to Score by Janet Evanovich

Morelli stood, scooped me up, carried me into his bedroom and dropped me onto his bed. He stripped off his T-shirt and shorts, all the while watching me with dilated eyes, all black pupil beneath the black fringe of his lashes. His hands were steady, but his breathing was ragged. And then his briefs were gone and he was naked.

Luc Martineau and Jane Alcott
See Jane Score by Rachel Gibson

She smiled against his belly and she would have bitten him if his skin hadn’t been tight as a drum. She unbuttoned his pants and shoved them down his hips and thighs. He stood before her, his black horseshoe disappearing beneath his white briefs. Then she pushed the underwear down his legs.

Kevin Tucker and Molly Summerville
This Heart of Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

She heard him coming up the path, but unlike her, he wasn’t breathing hard. She shut her eyes. If she opened them, she’d just see what she already knew, that he’d stripped down to a pair of navy blue boxers before his first dive. It was painful to look at him—all those ripples, planes, and smooth long muscles. She’d been terrified—hopeful?—the boxers would come off in the dive, but he’d somehow managed to keep them on.

Bobby Tom Denton and Gracie Snow
Heaven, Texas by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

They’d even fixed the fly on his jeans so he couldn’t zip them up all the way. They fell open in a V that dipped so low he couldn’t wear his briefs under them. The jeans were also a size too tight, and he hoped like hell he didn’t get a hard-on because, if he did, the whole world was sure enough going to know about it.
“I don’t have on any underwear.”
Her eyes shot up.
When he was on his feet, she slipped her fingers over the waistband of his jeans, where they had fallen open low on his hips, and discovered he hadn’t been teasing when he said he wasn’t wearing any briefs.

Ranger and Stephanie Plum
Ten Big Ones by Janet Evanovich

The ugly truth is, I’d finally lost the fight for dignity, and I was searching for Ranger’s underwear. Not that I was going to do anything kinky with it. I just wanted to see what he wore. Hell, I thought I’d shown a lot of restraint to have gone this long without snooping.
I’d now searched the entire dressing room, and unless Ranger kept his underwear in his safe, it appeared to me that he went commando.
I had one drawer left. I slowly opened the drawer and peeked inside. A single pair of black silk boxers. Just one pair. What the heck did that mean?
It was Ranger. The man was deadly sexy.
And he was walking around without underwear. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I gave myself a mental face slap. Get a grip, I told myself. You don’t really know for sure. Just because you didn’t find any underwear, doesn’t mean he doesn’t own any. Maybe they were all in the laundry. All right, so this was a little improbable. I was going to go with it anyway, because the thought of standing next to Ranger when he was commando had me in a state.

a) You’re dating a stripper who wears thongs/g-strings (hopefully only for work purposes!).
b) You live in Europe or date a European who wears bikini briefs (and most probably also wears those tiny Speedo bathing suits to the beach LOL).

Wonder where Fredrik Ljungberg's (2nd pic) tattoo ends. mmmmm the possibilities *sigh*

Funny thing Harlot, that's actually a pic of your "bf" in my bed. Ooops, I guess I wasn't supposed to mention that?

In my opinion, Ranger is sexier than Morelli.

I like Morelli better, but after that Silk black boxers- commando quote, seriously re-thinking my position, lol!

LOL Is this the result of too much booze from last night's party? That's his bed and i took that pic myself.

Hmm.. let's ask Matt.. (NOT Matt Farrell. The OTHER Matt.) You might be the one who's in dire need of another spanking. Add handcuffing too.

But Ranger still sounds hot!

I think Matthew McConaughey would make a good morelli, actually he would make a good anything, lol.

Ranger, I would have to give it more though. I know some people have mentioned Vin Diesel, but I don't much care for him. In the other hadn Raoul (last pic) could be my Ranger any day, lol

sorry for my akward english. As you already you know I'm not american. I'm korean and avid romance novel reader. .... Isn't it great? your bolg is quite international-! :-p ...... back to the very important task of who should be Morelli and ranger, Matthew McConaughey is too blondy but no objection! And I think Van diesel is perfect candidate for Ranger still afford to embrace any perfect dark, machoy hunk!

Vin D for Morelli? I think Vin needs to take lessons in elocution first.

ops...Vin for Ranger? I somehow pictured Ranger with a neck...which Vin seem to be missing. Don't get me wrong, I though Vin rocks in Tripple X

I'm into all kinds of stuff, but boxers are my fave things to stuff in my mouth.

Great blog!

My Mouth, you kinky dog! LOL

The casting of Morelli/Ranger has been something my friend P and I discuss ALL the time (okay, not ALL the time, but a lot LOL). And we still can't come to a decision.

Benjamin Bratt is one possibility for Ranger.

I have no trouble casting Lula or Grandma Mazur though (Queen Latifah and Cloris Leachman).

Now, as for the boxers/brief/commando question, I like my guy to wear the boxer briefs things. Much cooler and sexier that white jockeys!

Harlot, you bitch...LOL (I can use the word in this instance). That CANNOT be your bf. Where on earth did you dig him up??? At the dungeon of the nun retreat you had to go to? ROFL

Btw, you know you live to be spanked for 'misdemeanors'...:p

Btw, I used to be a boxers gal, but I guess I am impartial these days (probably from complete cluelessness and lack of action)...LOL. So these days I like them as long as the 'goods' are of the finest quality...ROFL. But 'Ranger' is definitely something :p

p/s: You guys are seriously corrupting my mind!
