Ahhh, the soft feel of silk.
While once the rage just like hairspray back in the early 90s, silk boxers subsided for several years as men often thought of them as too gaudy and not really functional whatsoever.
If you ask any guy walking down the street what their thoughts on silk boxers are, you would probably be looked at like you have 3 heads. But the general consensus is this:
- Silk boxers are only worn by Finance/Wall Street guys (i.e. Gordon Gecko)
- They are sticky
- They trap heat making them uncomfortable when worn for long periods
But here’s the deal guys:
Silk boxers, when worn properly, might be one of the best additions to your wardrobe in recent years.
You see, when the mercury begins to rise and the heat gets a little too unbearable for the summer nights, even the fanciest of pajamas might not cut it.
Therefore, men often strip down to their constricting boxers or briefs and hit the sack.
Check this out:
Many of the silk boxers we outline below have larger inseams and outseams than your traditional boxers (i.e they won’t ride up and wrap up your balls).
Secondly, the leg opening is significantly larger making for increase airflow to your junk.
With their incredibly soft texture, to put it bluntly, these will feel incredible next to your manhood. Furthermore if you are in bed with your S.O., they will thank you for the added softness especially if you try to make a move.
Note: Now we aren’t saying that silk boxers can turbocharge your sex life, but lets just say that women (or men), will appreciate the added softness and wide openings for easy access.
So if you are on the fence about picking up a pair of silk boxers, we say give it a shot. Besides, if they aren’t that great you can always exercise the return policy if necessary (we really don’t think this will be the case though).
Without wasting a minute more here is a roundup of the finest silk boxers available for men today(sort in alphabetical order):
