Married Str8 Trio – Skimpy Underwear with Kids
The Married Str8 Trio is back with another discussion. This round we discussed a bit about our skimpy underwear and kids.
Do you allow your kid(s) to see you in your underwear or do you do your best to change, so they can not see them?
Ron: Yes is the short answer. I had no problem as very brief underwear was the fashion when my kids were young in the late 80s and 90s
The Bottom Drawer: I don’t hide my underwear choice either. I’m not afraid to let them see my choice though I don’t typically roam around the house in just them. My daughter isn’t really old enough to notice yet, but not planning on hiding them. Now my son has commented he likes my underwear, which I think it is the color or print he is talking about. If it is a thong he’s commented I see your butt on several occasions.
Blkmlthng: I don’t really hide my underwear choice but don’t really go out of my way to roam around the house in them either. My 5 month old wouldn’t know and my 3 year old is potty trained so he is excited about his underwear at the moment. I was getting dressed the other morning for work and I had on bikini brief underwear and my son walked in on me as I was putting on my pants and didn’t even say anything about it he wanted to tell me about the dinosaur he saw on TV.
Are there any pairs you own that you’d might try to avoid being seen in by the kids?
The Bottom Drawer: The most risque underwear in my opinion I have is stuff that is on the sheer side. I may be a bit skittish when wearing them, but I wouldn’t say I avoid being seen. My goal is not to paint the picture that I’m ashamed of what I wear or even my body in general to my kids.
Blkmlthng: Like Nate stated, I want to paint a positive body image and not be ashamed of what I wear in front of my kids. I also think there are some things that are for adults only and some of my underwear that may be mesh or net like material that may be see through; more like erotic wear that I may put on for my wife during times when she and I will be intimate.
Ron: In agreement with you both. My boys would baulk at my choice of underwear now though in times when they were young I never wore anything risqué in the sense of transparency not that I owned any.
Have your kid(s) put you in any awkward situations related to your underwear?
Ron: Not that I can think off though I think they would treat my current choice as comical and ‘gay’
Blkmlthng: No my boys are to young to do that at this point, 3 and 5 months. I suspect some jokes and ribbing would come when they get to be teenagers and young adults.
The Bottom Drawer: As of yet mine haven’t either. I think my son is entering the age that he could say something inadvertently about the unmentionables to someone. He doesn’t know they aren’t something guys typically don’t wear yet.
At what age do you think is appropriate for kids to move to skimpier cuts of underwear if they wanted to? Does a bikini vs thong make a difference? How about does gender?
The Bottom Drawer: I say the gender for the age wouldn’t matter for sure though we know things will be easier for the girls all around with underwear. For me I would say style makes a difference. I think bikinis would be appropriate before thongs. Plus bikinis are available at a younger age for girls not that they are skimpy like most of mine. An appropriate age for me would also depends on maturity more so for thongs than bikinis (depending on the skimpiness). If I had to pick an age, I’d just go with the teenage year of 13. If mine asked sooner, I think I would allow a try of them especially with it being underwear. Though my wife would have a say in this too.
Blkmlthng: For me I would say whenever they get to the age when they can purchase their own underwear with their own money. As of right now mainstream stores are mostly selling boxers, boxer briefs or briefs or tighty whities. For women the options always include skimpier styles in stores. For men most of our options for skimpier underwear are online. Who knows what things will be like when my sons get to teenager/young adult stage as clothes for teenage boys/men are getting more fitting or slim fit styles boxers definitely don’t go well with tighter fitting pants or shorts. If my sons wanted to wear skimpier styles in their teenage years it wouldn’t be an issue for me but of course it wouldn’t be solely up to me, my wife, their mother would be involved in the decision making. Once they are young adults and are able to shop on their own they can purchase whatever underwear makes them comfortable. They will grow up with a Dad who wears skimpy men’s underwear so hopefully they will grow up with it being a norm and not something seen as taboo.
Ron: Not sure about this one. Guess whenever they’re comfortable in their own ideas and have thick enough skins to put up with the negative attitudes which will inevitably follow. I think skimpier styles will come back as everything is cyclical.
That wraps this conversation up. How did or do you handle your skimpy underwear and/or swimwear with kids? Have a topic you’d like us to discuss then let me know via a comment or send me a message.
