Boxer shorts (also known as loose boxers or as simply boxers) are a type of underwear generally worn by men. The term has been used in English since 1944 for all-around-elastic shorts, so named after the shorts worn by pugilists (boxers), for whom unhindered leg movement ('footwork') is almost as important as the completely free arm movement of the barechested fighters.
Reasons for a preference for boxers can be attributed to their variety of styles and design as well as way boxers look on the wearer. Unlike traditional briefs, boxers allow for more freedom in the selection of a fabric type and print design. According to Cosomopolitan and YM magazine, most women in the U.S. and the U.K. prefer men to wear boxer shorts. Boys usually switch from wearing briefs to boxer shorts when they become teenagers. This can be a problem if the teenager is to receive a spanking as boxer shorts do not afford such a good view of the buttocks nor the sweet spots.
