The Question: Why do some men wear boxers or briefs under their swimsuits?
Tom: Um nobody does that.
me: a. I just saw it on Bachelor in Paradise. b. I have seen it recently at the beach.
Tom: Huh that's dumb. People shouldn't do that.
Tom: I dunno man maybe they are afraid of getting boners.
me: I am taking this elsewhere. As usual you're worthless.
Tom: Wow. That is harsh.

Kyle: Often, to avoid the suction thing where you come out of the water and the trunks stick to your legs and it's just an outline of your dick.
me: OMG what? Why don't they make swimsuits with better liners?
Kyle: You don't wear underwear with trunks that have the mesh liners, since they fix that. But those aren't really comfortable.
me: Why aren't they comfortable?
Kyle: The mesh rides up and is too tight a lot of times.
me: This is a real issue. Do swimsuit designers know about this?
Kyle: I'm not sure. I'm sure some are boys.
