One of the biggest supporters of my blog has turned out to be a fellow blogger, Tim at Underwear New Briefs. While some people like to view us as "competitors", we see our blogs as complementary to one another. We both love to share our passion for underwear and hope to lead guys outside their comfort zones to try something new. So when Tim approached me recently about writing some reviews for his site (aka free undies) I did not hesitate to say yes!
So why am I rambling on about all of this? It is because I actually learned a thing or two through this process and thought it would be fun to share with you. A bit of a behind-the-scenes look at the world of underwear blogging.
I had no idea what underwear would be coming my way to review. Being an open minded blogger, I was ready for anything. And then it happened, the underwear arrived. Some fun looking briefs, a lace brief, and one other....a trunk! *gasp*
If you have been following this site and/or my social media sites for the past few years, you know that trunks and boxer briefs are not really in my collection. I was actually surprised at my reaction. My first thought was "why would Tim do this to me?", and then I quickly realized that I had not been as open minded as I thought. I tell people not to knock things before they try them, yet here I was being that underwear hypocrite.
Not wanting to live as a hypocrite, I decided to give the trunk a fair shot...and you know what, I actually kinda liked it. In fact, I even wrote "Overall, I found myself really enjoying wearing this trunk". If you're up for reading the entire review, you can check it out here.
Now before you get all concerned about me, and worry that you'll never see a skimpy pair of underwear on this site again, fear not! I'm still me and I still embrace all types of underwear. While the trunk was actually pretty comfortable, it has not made its way out of my underwear drawer yet again. This experience reminded me though that I have to be more open to giving other underwear a fair shot. We all fall into our comfort zones, me included, and now I've been pushed outside of that comfort zone and actually enjoyed it.
So keep following along my underwear journey here, and on Underwear News Briefs. I'll keep bringing you a wide range of reviews, interviews, and other gear related goodness!
