Does Sexy Men's Underwear Cause Divorce?

Is there a higher divorce rate for men who wear saucy underwear?

It’s 2023. The year where you can deliver anything to your home with a few taps of a phone, news in the United States can reach Europe in seconds, and gender roles have all but been forgotten.

It’s that last point which brings us on to this post. We’ve agreed that men, women and other can be who they want and do what they wish – and that’s a great thing before anyone gets their knickers in a twist (more of that later…) – but why is it that women can now wear the pants, but men can rarely wear the panties?

Think about it. If a married man is caught with a fishnet thong in his gym bag, the chances are he’ll be looking at a package of divorce papers coming his way. And that package might still come even if he can prove that the lingerie belonged to his own package.

Are we living in times enlightened enough to embrace a satin thong on a man? Or a lacy bodysuit?

We think so – and we’re here to explain how men’s lingerie and saucy underwear can help save a marriage.

Your intimates get even more intimate


The elephant (trunk) in the room (if you’re lucky).

Sex is what keeps a marriage alive. It might not be the only thing, but it is an important thing. And fellas, holes in your underwear are only sexy when they’re intentionally there. Like with a pair of backless, split briefs.

By throwing out baggy briefs and bland boxers, you’re making a commitment to your other half.

You’re promising to put in the effort to keep the fires stoked. You’re promising that, while the years tick by, you’ll still find new ways to keep one another amused, aroused and attracted. You’re promising that there’s still plenty more of yourselves to explore.

A shared secret

Secrets forge relationships. They bond you. So, imagine if the secret you’re sharing is something satin. Something which clings in a way that might just play on both of your minds while you’re stuck at another boring work dinner or a family obligation.

The anticipation of getting home and ripping off those slacks to reveal a pair of Brazilian lace briefs or a satin thong.

And, hell, who says you have to wait to get home. Layers of fun can be added to your unlayering. 

It’s naughty. It’s taboo. It’s something fun for just the two of you.

Let’s get physical

Any body is a Body Aware body. Let’s make that clear. Big, small, tanned, toned, more to love or all-muscle, the only thing you really need is an open mind.

But with that being said, men opting for something a bit saucier might be inspired to focus on looking their best. And that effort won’t go unappreciated from your other half, whether it’s adding a few extra squats to the gym routine for a plumper derriere in your daring tangas or limbering up to feel flexible in your frilly bodysuit.

Include your partner

The only time men’s lingerie might lead to marital woes is if it’s hidden. You’re not breaking a law by swapping tighty whities for thongs, or your basic Hanes for a harness. If it’s something you’re interested in, the chance is your partner will want to share that with you.

One of the biggest reasons couples fall out of love and lust with each other is the suppression of fantasy. The distance grows when neither one of you is getting what you want. What you need.

Shop together. Model your lingerie for your partner. Let them choose something they’d want to see you in.

They say sharing is caring – and so is baring your cupped package or pert buttocks in your saucy underwear.

There we have it. The beautiful irony here, for the pearl clutching conservatives out there, is that we’re defending something traditional by slipping into something altogether untraditional. To protect the sacred institution of marriage, swap those Fruit of the Looms for the thrilling forbidden fruit of naughty male lingerie.

It might just be the best thing you ever did for your marriage, and our prices are much more reasonable than couples counselling…


I loved reading these comments. You guys are my tribe! My wife hates it whenever I buy new thongs or jockstraps. I already have quite the collection, but each time I shop I think how surprised she will be to see me in something new. At a certain point, I guess they all started blending together because now she doesn’t notice what I’m wearing is new. Kinda nice actually. Wish she was more involved. Will definitely take that recommendation to involve her in shopping!

My wife left me and told me I was a freak for wearing sexy underwear. It wasn’t manly.

In this new era men should be able to wear what they feel comfortable in. Women do it. Why not us? Can you imagine a guy breaking up/divorcing with a woman because she wears thongs?! Or because she likes those ultra tight tights? Or that sport bra that she flaunts with a abandon anywhere she goes? Or because how her clothes outlines her curves from head to toe? Go men!

My wife has no problem with my thongs at all.

Scott March 12, 2023

My wife knows that I wear sexy underwear and is very encouraging of it. We have instituted Thong Thursdays where we each wear thongs. We also have a few pairs of matching ( or very similar) pairs of panties that we will often coordinate. It can be very exciting to know that we each hage on a matching pair for the day.

I would love some microfiber briefs and thongs with a body aware logo waist band! That’s the one product missing. Please please please! I would buy 10!

Heath February 28, 2023

Finally talked about my desires to wear men’s thongs with my wife and she was incredibly supportive! I love the way men’s thongs feel and am going to explore the different fabrics and styles that are out there!

Brad February 27, 2023

I really hope for a change in this. My last girlfriend broke up with me just because I wear thongs (sporty ones designed for men). I would like to push it even more and wear something more seductive like lace, satin and so on. But being afraid of losing another love one because of this is not what I want. This change needs to come from outside. Products like male lingerie need to be more visible everywhere to became mainstream and people will not look at this as something shocking. Even woman can change the opinion from “What the he..” to “Actually why not”. Personally I think that social networks may open the door for a lot more acceptance.

This is so good.
I love wearing sexy men’s underwear.
I grew up with seriously conservative morals that still affect me today.
It took me years to admit that I loved wearing them.
My wife now appreciates a lot of my underwear and is happy for me to enjoy wearing them.
Our conservative side still affects us as I can’t admit to her how much I’d love to wear some of the sexier and more feminine styles on Body Aware.
My wife isn’t interested in seeing me in men’s or women’s panties- so it’s a secret that I still keep.

I started wearing bikini’s at age 13 as they sold them in the department store. The picture on the box had me curious. Such comfort and I liked the way I looked. I moved to thongs and g’s and wearing all coverages, boxers too. Over time I only had one woman complain about my underwear. I got questions but I rocked my underwear with confidence. So criticism , albeit rare, didn’t and doesn’t matter to me. Even today

Eric February 27, 2023

I have always had a love for lingerie and when I started wearing my ex’s ohboy! I am open and honest with my desire to wear panties of all types and colors and she LOVES it! Thanks to Bodyaware and XDress I have an overflowing drawer of sexy goodness.

Peter February 27, 2023

Great blog post! I agree that the world is a vastly different place and gender roles are changing and the world is more accepting. Of course when it comes to underwear, the “secret” under the clothes is great! Nobody needs to know your underwear preference and you SO should hopefully understand. I agree that is can be a bonding moment and a “secret” that you and your SO share! It can lead to a tighter bond and a more adventurous bedroom experience. I love XDress and Body Aware! I love the way satin feels! I am adventuring into the active wear and love the new rip stop runner!

Scott February 27, 2023

I love wearing sexy lingerie and yes my partner knows it and will often pick it out. It really makes me feel good and sexy

Gary February 27, 2023

I just love the feel of the lace and the satin against my body. Plenty of room for my boys to move around. I’m so glad I found this sexy shop

Darren February 27, 2023

I’ve been wearing sexy lingerie for years, first buying larger sized womens under wear, until i found sites like bodyaware and xdress. I’ve always been open with my partners about my love for lingerie – some couldn’t get their head around it and the relationship didn’t last, but for those that accepted me as I was – wow the sex has been great. I’ve now been married for 15 years and have a collection of lace panties suspenders and bodies bought both by myself and by my wife who loves to see my excitment when I slip into them. Be honest guys and open if you love to dress up and your partner accepts it, it leads to a happy and fulfilling sex life.

David February 24, 2023

I’ve been a bodyaware customer for a very long time… years and years My wife absolutely loves me in all of it..she wears them… We get a lot of satisfaction… seeing each other in them…. Romance..fantasy… seduction is all part of keeping the blood flowing… Keep it up… no pun intended

Luke February 22, 2023

I occasionally wear lingerie but my wife doesn’t know. I wear under regular clothes. Makes me feel sexy and horny.
