If your taste in underwear is playful and sexy, you should be no stranger to American designer Andrew Christian who embraces gay culture in everything he creates: undies, swimwear, activewear, and most recently a new line of skincare products. There’s no holding back with iconic collections like Massive, Blow, Trophy Boy, and FUKR that all leave very little to the imagination and bring your sexual fantasies to life. AC models are seriously sexy, but don’t take themselves too seriously sporting fun and whimsical prints like the flying unicorn brief and turning up the heat in metallic mesh jocks. We recommend anything with the Almost Naked pouch featuring an anatomical design to feel like you’re almost wearing nothing at all.

Nasty Pig is based out of New York City and was founded in 1994 as an act of defiance against the AIDS epidemic that had taken so many lives within the community and was all but ignored by the federal government. It’s now a leading gay men’s clothing brand that makes hot clothes meant to get you laid. New designs are released regularly and take more than a year from concept to market. Criticized in the early years for the brash name “Nasty Pig,” they didn’t back down from being forward and embracing men’s sexuality. In fact, rather than responding to criticism, they saw this as an opportunity to shine and work and against all odds to make the vision dream a reality. Check out their online store for hot new looks, gear, and more for the streets to the sheets.
This underwear brand was born out of Vancouver, Canada and is designed for total sex appeal. Their philosophy is simple and they strive to create sexy underwear and swimwear that they themselves would want to wear. Founded in 2012, Garçon was launched with the aim of creating a stylish underwear brand that is both elegant and sexy. In French the expression ‘Garçon Model’ means ‘Good Boy’ but recently they have begun to simply go by the name ‘Garçon.’ In addition to just designing and producing sexy underwear and swimwear, they are also dedicated to social justice, regularly contributing to homelessness, refugee and LGBT+ charities.
