A type of underwear.

- Smaller, so when you're pantsless you look more embarrassing.
- Dissed by people who think they're cool and stuff.

- Prevents your balls from swinging around during physical activity.
I played Pump It Up wearing boxers today, and my testicles almost fell off because I wasn't wearing briefs.

really short undergarnment mostly worn by men. only real con with briefs is the fact that most people find them dorky and stuff. i only wear boxers for the sake of not looking bad. but briefs are very comfortable and good. if only people would grow the F up, briefs would definetly be popular again like they once were. comfortable fitting and sometimes erotic. briefs are defenitly a good choice if your not ashamed of them
nicknames are tighty whities, man panties
underwear of any sort is embarassing but people need to grow up when it comes to briefs

The male version of a bra for your testes. This underwear is mainly worn by boys who need their large testicles to be supported. Often mocked by boys with small balls.
I need some briefs, or my balls will swing around when I walk.

A great invention meant to protect the penis and balls.
Briefs are always comfortable even in a wedgie.

A style of underwear for boys. They are called briefs because they do not extend down the legs. They come in many different patterns and colors. They are general targets for wedgies and pantsing. They are most commonly made by Fruit Of The Loom and Hanes. A nickname for them is tighty whiteys.
Tom recieved a wedgie from the bully because he wore briefs. Tom was later pantsed in the locker room, and everyone saw his tighty whiteys and they gave him a hanging wedgie off of a hook in one of the lockers.
