Y-fronts

Briefs

Briefs are a type of short, tight underwear and swimwear, as opposed to styles where the material extends down the legs. A main difference between male briefs and female briefs is that male briefs are often designed with a large pouch in the front center area to accommodate a penis and scrotum. This is because men and boys have larger external genitals in comparison to women or girls, thus requiring more fabric in the crotch area. See swim briefs for the case of briefs as swimwear.
