Saturday February 11th we had our first ever live underwear party; the GUB Grind! It was a blast. If you didn’t get a chance to make it out to Colorado here’s how it went.
See more pictures at the bottom of the post!
First some of the back story. Last fall we were contacted by the Colorado Springs Pride Center, which is the city I happen to live in. They’re working hard on the 2012 Pridefest which has been themed “We the People”. The city has had a rough battle for human rights with in the gay community and this is where they want to make the peoples voice heard.
Honestly the city is ready for this community to make it’s move, it’s come a long way since the amendment 2 days. (for more on this Pride Center and it’s campaign toward equality go to: http://www.ppglcc.org/ ) So that being said we at the Guys’ Underwear Blog wanted to help. How can we get our expertise involved in a fund raiser? An underwear party!
So we found a home; Club Q in Colorado Springs (http://www.clubqonline.com/). And we contacted many of our friends we have come to love within the underwear community and gave them the proposal. And of course we had some great responses from some amazing folks in the industry and the GUB Grind was born!
I will be honest.
Things did get a little chaotic and the event almost didn’t happen. On the day of the event it snowed and the temperature was 16 degrees Fahrenheit! It was 70 and sunny the next weekend. Many of the people working on the event were coming from Denver, an hour’s drive away which includes a fairly rough pass.
My co-host was unable to make it, so we threw in a last minute stand by who I have to say did an amazing job. Thank you Mikey!
Several models, also coming from Denver, were not able to come for various reason. We found an adorable guy named Kyle who was willing to step in. And the Natalie Lynn Modeling agency was great about finding us a replacement literally a few hours before the show (http://www.natalielynnmodels.com/). Both our photographers were unable to make it (so forgive the bad pictures, lol) as were several volunteers.
But… The show went on and it was AMAZING!
Thanks to our sponsors 2(x)ist, Jake Joseph, Maclovia, Mensuas, and Tribe we had over 60 pairs of underwear to auction off. We set up a silent auction which ran from 6pm till midnight. I personally bought several new pairs of underwear. I was SO happy! One of our favorite models, Adam Coussins, also donated a pair of his underwear which he autographed.
The show started and everything else became a blur to me! It was crazy, hectic wonderful fun and the next thing I knew it was over. But it was so much fun. We ran a fashion show, then auctioned off the underwear right off our models! Unfortunately the models did need to wear underwear under the undies; legal and hygienic reasons. A few pair brought in over $50!
We opened the fashion show with 2xist in a formal show featuring their Tux Collection. That’s where I had on my ridiculous formal underwear. I was a mess that night! But our models looked great in the underwear complete with bow ties.
Next we had our JOCK Show featuring the underwear provided by Menuas. The models look amazing with their sports gear and props. This was definitely one of the shows the models seemed to have the most fun with.
After that we had our Valentines Fashion Show featuring the sleek underwear of Jake Joseph. Here the models came out in a mask and matching heart boxers, which we gave the auction winners, and stripped them off to reveal the Jake Josephs. A few months ago Jake Joseph himself called me to talk about this event. I was all giddy!
FYI, see all the photos at the bottom of the post!
Next we had our Wet and Wild Show here we showcased the swimwear of Tribe. We also gave our models squirt guns and bubbles. After this we had a special entry with two swim suits from Maclovia. This was a hit as Maclovia is a new underwear brand out of Denver. So the locals loved it!
We didn’t want to forget the women nor the lovers of their underwear so we threw in a women’s underwear contest here. Wow, these women worked it!
Finally we concluded the program with our TOUCH Show where we showed of 2xists brand new spring collection entitled TOUCH. We even had a few gals from the women’s underwear contest escorting our guys around! And we ended up with multiple models around at the same time. So much fun!
The event was amazing and was so much fun. Despite the bad weather we raised over $1,000 for the Colorado Springs Pride Center! Thanks to our friends, Club Q, and its amazing staff, Natalie Lynn Models (Nick, Gregg, and Andrew), our other models (Thom, Kyle), 2xist, Jake Joseph, Maclovia, Mensuas, Tribe and the Pride Center Volunteers (Cindy, Dionesia, Lee and Cris).
Cris was our last minute camera man. We will have a video out soon! The pictures here are stills from the video. But continuing the trend our video man has the flu! But keep on the look out for the video.
So thanks again and please, please support the amazing companies that made this possible. And may the Colorado Springs Pride Center reach that goal of equality for us all!

No More Swimming in Underwear
Dubai’s beaches have a new ordinance which makes it obligatory to wear proper swimwear while on the beach. They have had issues with people swimming in just underwear, which becomes transparent, or swimming fully clothed. Now beach patron must wear an actual swim suit. As a lifeguard at a pool I must say I like this new law, although sometime wet undies aint too bad.
Crotchless Panties for 7 Year Olds!
What the heck! Right here my home state too! Watch the video, it says it all.
A New World Record in Underwear, Literally
57 people in the Canary Wharf district of London set a new world record for the most people to be in a single pair of underwear. Obviously not a normal pair of undies here. But some of the participates had on some nice undies themselves.
Sperm Cooling Underwear
STUD, the baby making underwear, has designed a pair of undies that will keep your sperm cooler, thus helping to increase your fertility chances. These undies are designed with cool mesh material around your sperm producing areas, namely your testicles. These undies will run you about $60. But a much more styling option to them baggy boxers: www.studbriefs.com.
Mario Lopez Underwear Line
So Mr.Lopez former Saved By The Bell star, a title he will never out-live, has designed a new line of mens underwear. And good for him for being willing to be the model as well. He looks great. The underwear on the other hand have been getting mixed reviews. Some guys say they look like they would have been in fashion back in the 70’s. Personally I don’t know, I think Mario should send us a pair to review.
Underwear Under Toupee
Nilesh Ramlal Bari, a 28 year old man in Mumbai, stuffed his toupee with underwear. Why? He wanted to be a policeman, unfortunately he is only 165cm and they have a limit which is 168cm. So he is too short, so to pass the exam he came up with this little trick. It didn’t work and instead his little stunt make the newspaper and our international blog.
Honk If You Think I’m Sexy
A teenage boy was standing out in the street in Fairfield Connecticut in his underwear holding a sign that said “Honk if you think I’m sexy”. And of course he had a friend video taping the whole thing. It should be on YouTube soon.
Robert Downey Jr Flashes His Underwear
On his red carpet walk for the new Sherlock Holmes movie Robert made a little fashion faux pas. He tucked his shirt into his underwear as opposed to over his underwear and into his pants. So we got to see his red Calvin Klein’s. Of course Klein may have paid him to do that.
Will Tebow Win You Underwear?
Jockey announced that if Tim Tebow, who has yet to pose in Jockeys, and the Broncos win the Super Bowl they will give away a million dollars in underwear and to one winner $15,000 (Since Tebow is number 15). Jockey should have bet more, they probably won’t have to pay. But if they do win Woo Hoo! (Above is a pic of Tebow in underwear, not Jockeys, GASP)
PICTURE OF THE WEEK:
In honor of Christmas I found it only fitting to showcase a nice tree with some beautiful gifts underneath. Hamid, Nick and Trent, three of the models from the Natalie Lynn modeling agency who will be working the runway at the GUB Grind!
This also is a GUB Original picture featuring underwear generously donated to us by 2xist. Hamid is in the white Military Sport Brief . Nick is in a green Military No-Show Trunk. And Trent is in a green Military Square-Neck Tank. I love the Military Collection from 2xist! I will have a review coming out soon on this line. Thank you 2xist, Natalie Lynn, Hamid, Nick and Trent and a Merry Christmas to all of you!
Like the underwear you see here?

Boo! It’s almost Halloween. Don’t forget your underwear costume for your after party costume party. Or why not just go out in the underwear as a costume? Next Saturday the 29th if you’re in Colorado Springs you can see me in nothing but a tiger print bikini. I will be working a face/body painting fund-raiser. If you’re good I may post pics. Anyway I hope you have a very safe and fun Halloween.
Now let’s see what’s going on:

GUB NEWS: GUB Grind
We are throwing a huge underwear party! It won’t be until February, but we’re leaking out more information. Be there and you can win some great underwear, or buy it right off one of our hot models at the live auction. And yes, you get to pull them off! We will also have a silent auction where you can pick up some great undies. Hot Model Adam Coussins is going to donate several pairs of his underwear, as well as signed pictures. Tribe underwear, Jake Joseph, Ristefsky Macheda and Mensuas are also going to contribute. Plus there is going to be live underwear entertainment and plenty of men and women clad only in underwear. It’s going to ROCK! So where will it be?… Stay tuned.
Underwear Bomber Trial Starts
I hate the fact that this man has ruined the good name of underwear. A beautiful garment meant to support and protect our most valuable parts used to conceal a bomb! That was his crime. He pleaded guilty by the way. Years of build-up to a pretty uneventful climax. He will most likely get a life sentence, which will happen in January.
Logan Lerman Gets Ellen Underwear
One of the stars of the Three Musketeers, I guess that’s being done again, Logan Lerman was on the Ellen show and received a pair of Ellen underwear. When do I get to review Ellen underwear! Give me a pair Ellen! I love you!
Janko Tipsarevic in Underwear
We have another tennis player to join the ranks of underwear model! Janko has become the face, or crotch, of Extreme Intimo’s underwear. I think he should model undies more often!
Don’t Show Your Underwear in Arkansas
Helena Arkansas has passed an ordinance that prohibits the displaying of underwear in public. Assistant Police Chief Ronald Scott says the display of under clothing in public creates an unnecessary distraction to others and sometimes provokes a disruptive or violent response. “These garments of clothing are to worn next to the skin while being fully covered by other articles of clothing,” commented Chief Uless Wallace. “Purposely, knowingly, or recklessly displaying these garments could cost a $100 fine,” added Scott. The states of Tennessee and Mississippi have similar ordinances with fines up to $500! DAMN! What happened to the land of the free?
Marci Kleins Weird Problem
Marci Klein, daughter of Calvin Klein, said in a recent interview “Every time I go to bed with some guy, I’m looking at my dad’s name on their underwear.” Does that happen a lot?
Jim Leylands Lucky Underwear
Jim Leyland, the manager of the Detroit Tigers, revealed that during last month’s 12 game winning streak he didn’t change his underwear. A lot of athletes don’t change their underwear if they win. I guess the advantage of losing is having clean underwear and not getting a rash, fungus or gangrene on your crotch.
No More Sexy Underwear Billboards
According to Scotland’s Daily Record, billboards and public advertisements featuring sexual themes, raunchy poses or barely clothed people will be outlawed. The regulations will be even higher for areas within 100 yards of a school. The issue was brought up concerning an underwear billboard featuring Eva Herzigoba in underwear next to the phrase “Hello Boys”, for Wonderbra. This will effect our underwear clad men as well. To what extent this will be pushed I don’t know. Sorry guys in Scotland.
City Council Candidate at an Underwear Party! GASP
Hayes Edward Ricks who served on the Laurel, Maryland, City Council from 1980 to 1988 is now running again unopposed. But shock has hit the area as photo’s of him at an underwear party have turned up! They were found posted on his own face book page. Apparently he didn’t think anyone would care. He has since removed them. WHO CARES! I think we are holding some of our public officials to inhuman standards of “morality”. Do you really want people in office who are so out of touch with our reality they think underwear is taboo and offensive? Show us your undies Ed! I think he should come to the GUB Grind!
Man in Underwear Hit by Car
In San Antonio a 27 year old man ran out into the street and was hit by a car. It may shock you, but apparently he was found to be under the influence of drugs. Am I the only sober guy who runs around outside in underwear?
THE WEEK IN UNDERWEAR CRIME:
Urban Outfitters Underwear Dilemma
The retailer, one of my favorites, has been selling underwear and socks in the theme of Native America and has labeled them “Navajo”. Apparently, this has been seen as not politically correct. What’s more, it’s actually illegal for companies to imply that their products might be made by Native Americans when they aren’t, according to the Federal Indian Arts and Crafts act of 1990. Jezebel reports that the Attorney General of the Navajo Nation wrote to Urban Outfitters months ago asking them to stop selling the items in question, but is still waiting for a response. I aint saying a thing.
Identified by His Underwear
14 year old Antonio Kliess of Florida was interrupted during a car break-in at a parking lot. Once discovered he fled. Witnesses saw his saggy pants falling and saw his red boxers. You know how funny it is to watch saggers walk because it looks like they crapped their pants, and have to keep one hand on their pants at all times? I bet this was a hilarious scene. Anyway, they found him later and he was identified because of his red boxers. I guess the witnesses were underwear fans.
20 students in San Marcos Texas are facing misdemeanor charges after forcing new members to strip to their underwear and drink alcohol. The problem was some of the ones forces to drink were underage. As hot as underwear hazing may sound, it must be done responsibly people!
PICTURE OF THE WEEK:
This week we have a great picture and a great idea for your Halloween costume. How about going as a cuddly teddy bear? I this outfit you are sure to get a lot of attention. And a lot of hugs! I would hug him. Happy Halloween men!
Hello Gubbers! I love you! I am back with an all new report. It’s been a while since my last one, I am very sorry about that. Now I have almost too much to report; some really great stuff too! First off can you believe it’s October? What the heck! Ok I’ll stop screaming with all these exclamations. Let’s get to the news:
GUB NEWS: The “GUB Grind”
Something HUGE is coming! I can’t give all the details yet because this project is still in the planning stage. But around Valentines Day we are going to hosting a big underwear party somewhere. We are in the talks with several amazing underwear brands and several HOT models (Including the one pictured above, the man I asked to marry me lol). More info to come soon.
GUB NEWS: Underwear Shopping
We are going to be putting together an underwear shopping guide for Christmas and want your help. Let us know about your experiences with on-line or in store shopping. We want to hear it all; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Tell us your favorite stores for underwear and why. We also want to know about any stores or products you would avoid. Yes, this is going to be a real and honest guide! Send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: Largest Pair of Underwear Returned
A while back we reported that the world’s largest pair of underwear had been stolen from the City Museum in St. Louis. How credible that claim or museum are is still in question. Well, the 7 feet wide, 6 feet tall with a 16 feet waist pair of underwear has been returned. And with is was a new pair of woman’s panties the same size. Hmmm… Can you say publicity stunt? Although I do want to go see them now.
So, I have heard it from several reports that David Beckhams highly anticipated new line of underwear is going to include long johns. The line reportedly called “Choctaw Ridge”, because David is now a Native American (joke), will be sold at Barney’s. I’m sure online as well. Stylecaster.com has reported that David will not model the underwear. Really?! What’s the point Beckham, I hope this isn’t true.
UPDATE: Rwanda’s Used Underwear Market Receives a Deadline
As previously mentioned on the weekly report Rwanda, like several other countries, has posted a ban on the sales of used underwear. They have given merchants a deadline; December 31, 2011. So if you are a fan of used underwear in Rwanda you better get to shopping now!
New Underwear for Australian Soldiers
The Aussie Diggers, soldiers, will receive a new pair of lightweight high quality silk underwear. They are designed to improve mobility and protect against shrapnel. They go along with a new lightweight body armor the British soldiers are already using. Ok, if any of you Diggers out there are reading this; I need a pair of those undies! PLEASE!
Starbucks Barista Fired After Underwear Post on YouTube
Barista, Chris Christwell, was fired after posting a song about Starbucks on YouTube. He sang the song with a guitar wearing only an apron and his underwear. After listening to the song I don’t think the fact that he was in underwear had anything to do with it. By the way Chris, want to be interviewed for “My Lucky Undies”?
Four Players Kicked out of Game for the Color of Underwear
Four students and their manager were kicked out of a soccer game between Newport County and Bath City Academy in the FA Youth Cup. The rules state that your underwear needs to be the same as your shorts so as not to draw too much attention to it. The students shorts were red, their underwear white and black. Apparently the players, aged around 16 and 17, were made to pull their pants down to show their underwear. I think someone needs to do a background check on that ref!
Zac Efron in his Underwear
Here’s a picture of Zac in underwear on the set of the movie Paperboy. I have a comment for the director, Lee Daniels. First of all I love you Lee! Precious was AMAZING! However, next time there is a male underwear scene in one of your movies, please consult me first.
I’m not exactly sure what’s going on in this commercial, but I love it! I want some Athena HAPPY’s! I know, I know I need to calm down.
Where Are the MEN!
London’s famous Tabloid “the Sun” has posted it’s top 10 celebrity underwear shoots. Not one of them was a man! And I only had ever heard of four of the women. What about Beckham, Wahlberg, Palmer or Sabato Jr? Come on SUN!
Loosen Up Utah!
September 1st thousands of men and woman ran through Salt Lake City to make a statement: Don’t be so uptight Utah! From the pictures I’ve seen I think our Utah brothers should run around in underwear all the time.
THE WEEK IN UNDERWEAR CRIME:
Mom Shovels Underwear Clad Son
A 49-year-old mom, Priscilla Ethridge, was jailed after she allegedly told Walton County Sheriff’s Office deputies she hit her son, who was standing in his underwear, with a shovel handle and told him to get out of her home, reports the Northwest Florida Daily News in Fort Walton Beach. Her son, who is on probation, suffered either a broken or dislocated elbow. What a lovely family.
Chased Away by Underwear Man
A man in Buffalo New York chased a burglar out of his home and into the street. He was carrying a Glock pistol and was in nothing more than his underwear. He didn’t realize this till he was in the middle of the street. No need for shame man, just send me a pic.
PICTURE OF THE WEEK:
This week we have a picture that is a few weeks behind. Yes, I am a slacker sometimes. Winning the picture was “Bed Cap”! Congratulations man, and thank you for that great picture of yourself in a nice comfy bed just wearing your skivvies and a ball cap. NICE! And I thank all our contestants for their participation and great pictures. For a variety of reasons we need to put the contest on hold for a while. However I will keep any submissions we receive as well as all previous submissions that haven’t made it to the finals yet so that once we get going again you will be up for the prize. So you can still send us your underwear pictures, I won’t mind. Send them to email@example.com
