While at a family Easter gathering I observed my grandson and one of his friends eating dessert on TV trays. They both had on shorts that were similar to board shorts but a little shorter in length. With legs apart I could see right up the legs and both of them were freeballing. Later on they were both out back shooting hoops without their T-shirts on, and they both were sporting butt crack and constantly pulled up their shorts. I was surprised at 14 year olds freeballing.
I asked my grandson later on when he started freeballing, and he said "about 6 months ago." He also told me that "lots of skateboarders freeball now."
Can it be? Skin rather than boxers hanging out? If it's true, it will be a welcome change.
My son told me that my grandson also sleeps nude now, something my son has done since he was about 13. I guess it just runs in the family. At any rate, it sure is nice to see skin rather than printed boxers!
Yes I agree. When I was young we all wore briefs and going from briefs to freeballing was quite a change. But going from boxers to freeballing is more psychological than physical. It doesn't feel that much different. You just have to get over the fear of being naked under your clothes.
I've set the example with my son. He's just never bought. His choice is to wear boxers. He wears his pants fairly low, and like a lot o' guys his age, the boxers show out o' the top. He's had my example for sleepin' nude, but he only recently started that. I'm thankful that he's totally satisfied that all of us exercise our personal choice.
Right now underwear is a 'fashion statement' with kids- thanks to advertisers like Calvin Klein and various hip-hop artists. But fashion fads come and go. I remember when I was in high school (mid-'80s) nobody was wearing socks- even in freezing weather! (I about froze my toes off!) but now I never see kids going sockless (except in sandals- which don't count). Anyway- judging by the success of Nat' freeballing forums I would say freeballing is the next big trend!
From looking at the www.versace.com website and the Abercrombie & Fitch catalogs, freeballing is being pushed by the clothing designers. We've done the tighty-whities and the baggy boxers and it's time for a change. Freeballing hasn't been in since the 70s and it's due to return.
I've also been seeing low-rise jeans for guys and girls lately and there really is no point in wearing low-rise jeans if you're gonna wear undies.
I predict that by next year kids will be grabbing those boxers that are sticking out and giving each other wedgies. The smart and cool ones won't bother wearing any.
Actually, going sockless started in the 60's in colleges and I got caught up in the craze after I was already freeballing. Socks seemed to me to fall into the same category as underwear - I found them totally unnecessary, I was too warm wearing them, and I was more comfortable without. I hate to wear socks, tho' I did so all through my working days when I had to be "dressed up". But now I hardly ever wear any, even in colder weather. I love to wiggle my toes in my docksiders, loafers, running shoes, or even tan buckskins. My rule of thumb now is, if I wear a tie, I will wear socks, otherwise not (except on very cold, snowy days!).
My lil bro is 17 and doesn't wear underwear either..he and i r roomies at home and a few of his friends from what i've seen never wear underwear and they are callin it WEARIN DICK..goin without..i mentioned earlier that i've noticed a lot of guys i work with..iron workers..workin on a bridge go without too..at least at work..it's a bend over job and u c butt all the time..i don't think these dudes r wear tiny underwear..must be wearin dick.
We've had a warm weather trend and have observed lots of city work crews and street paving guys in low riding jeans (some no shirts) and there is no hint of underwear. A few of them wore just the bright orange vests and jeans. Real low hanging and butt crack galore. Think maybe the young teens are emulating their older generation as role models? Construction workers, street pavers and city pipe workers are all sporting butt crack and no signs of U.W. As dirty as they get every day, it's one less thing to wash! Keep hangin' low you guys. Seems like more and more guys are joining our freedom club!
I think construction workers have always been ardent freeballers. I remember years ago my parents were building a new house and I was watching this young carpenter dude working. He had a hugh hole in his jeans and his butt was hanging out. I kept wondering why I couldn't see his UW (this was before I heard about freeballing.) Like you say- it's cooler, and just less clothes to wash at end of the day.
I have a middle management desk job and seldom get to wear jeans to work. However, I've also been an amatuer house builder and remodeler for years. That's when you really appreciate freeballin' and not havin' lots o' clothes on. BTW, us thin little guys don't show as much butt crack as some of you must.
Im 17 and I freeball at work sometimes. It feels better, because you can loosen that support underwear gives you. At school, i don't usually. However, It is useful to freeball on some occasions, because you don't have to go through all the hassle of removing extra uneeded clothes. Sagging and freeballing is fun to, especially to get some air between there. You will feel more alive too. Most men should try it. Don't you agree with me?
