Boxers/Briefs and the Economy!

Briefonomics. No, it's not a new, short economics college course. I saw this discussed on a TV news channel.

According to the commentator, a good sign for the economy is when more men's underwear is sold. A spike in boxer/briefs sales coincides with a jump in the Dow Jones number and a good indicator that the economy will improve.

So...my creative mind wondered about men's undies. Does that mean men keep using the same ones for years and don't see the need to buy new ones unless they feel the economy needs a boost? Is it a male thing about not making unnecessary purchases until money issues seem solvent? Maybe only then would they splurge on new undies.

Totally unlike women.

Sorry, fellas...we women need new underwear on a constant basis. What woman doesn't always want to look her best and feel "hot" under her clothes...no matter what economic crisis is looming in front of us? We want to look and feel sexy for the love of our life, and sexy bras and panties are our solution.

Women will buy fancy, sexy underwear in all economic times...good and bad. It's a mindset thing for us. Plus, we keep the companies that produce these items in business, thus keeping our own sector of the stock market (hopefully) in the black.

Hmm. Maybe now I'll have to start looking for a company that makes briefs and boxers and buy some stock. Of course, I'll have to check the numbers and see if sales are on a rise and raising the company's status. Any suggestions? Or, is it time to buy low and wait for a surge in the market?

 Maybe we can be helpful and be part of the movement to spur the stock market upward. Ladies everywhere...go buy your men undies and help the US economy!

And while you're revved up to help our economy, write to members of Congress. Tell them to start buying more underwear. Maybe new "undies" will spur them to "play nice" and be patriotic at the same time.



Love scenes in romance books usually mention underwear...I know I do in my books. Heroes have to undress right along with heroines so serious fun can begin. Do my heroes wear boxers? Briefs? Read April Ash and Marianne Stephens books to see what kind of undies my heroes wear!

What kind of undies do you prefer on heroes?

I like boxers, but not the baggy kind, the stretchy kind like briefs. Yum.

Depending on the character my heroes have worn everything from tighty whiteies to nothing at all, yep commando, but that hero was running through the jungle with no need to dress at the time:) For me, it all depends on the characters personality and the situation.

On my own personal hero, hmmm, I like briefs!

Of course, there is another POV, right? Don't wear underwear at all and save money and put more bounce in to your life.
It makes as much sense as the Tea Party.

Sounds like a variation on the hemline theory of the stock market. Women's hemlines go up, so does the stock market. Down they go, so does the stock market. But that was when women wore skirts most of the time. Probably doesn't work now when any length goes, if it ever did. Sounds like they needed something new, and updated it to men.

I either want commando or boxer briefs!

I never heard this Marianne. Kind of funny. My heroes either go commando or boxer briefs. I find commando sexy in stories, but in real life the idea just gives me the heebie jeebies. There's a cleanliness issue that just doesn't do it for me.

Most of the time I'm more concerned about when my hubby is no longer wearing undies versus what type. Bwahahaaa.
