A type of underwear.

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

Pros:
- 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 type of underwear often known as tighty whities. When you wear them you have a very high chance of getting a wedgie from a boxer wearer. But briefs are very comfortable even during a wedgie.
During gym I was wearing briefs and I got pantsed in front of a hot girl then in the locker room I got a hanging wedgie and stayed there all night until the janitor finally got me down. I now get regular wedgies from the same people for the whole year.

Briefs are a type of underwear that are worn mostly by men. They are often more embarrassing because they don't cover the upper part of the legs, unlike boxers. They are not common with the "cool kids".

Boys that wear briefs are a target for wedgies. If you are a brief-wearer next to kids that wear boxers in a locker room, you are almost guaranteed to get a hanging wedgie. A common nickname for them is tightey whiteys, whitey tighteys, or TWs.
Once, when changing in the boys locker rooms, I took off my shirt. Then some jock pantsed me and saw my briefs. He called his friends and gave me an atomic wedgie. Everyone saw and laughed, then they hung me on a coathook, giving me a hanging wedgie. I stayed there for the rest of the day, hanging from my white briefs. I still wear briefs every day, even though everyone gives me wedgies from them every day.
