The problem with boxers is that it tends to hang out of one of the legs. And when one has the trousers on over them, it can get pretty uncomfortable in there and need a lot of adjusting, especially in the summer with so many provocatively dressed babes around. It’s not always easy to do that surreptitiously – though it’s lovely when riding a motorbike or scooter to ask the girl on the pillion to lend a helping hand.
So, it’s boxers in bed and a firmly clasping pair of briefs at most other times.
And that brings me off … I mean on … to another aspect of underpants selection: Do you other guys find, as I generally do, that the underpants here are way too small? I’m not a big guy in comparison with the average laowai, I don’t have such a broad butt (32-inch-waisted trousers fit perfectly with ample room to spare), and I’m not exactly hung like a horse, but even when I buy the largest size of briefs available, I often find that they’re too tight for comfort and end up tossing them into the duster drawer. So what on earth do you really big fellows (or girls) do when it comes to shopping for those skivvies in Taiwan?
