I just pull down the elastic waistband and whiz over the top.

I was going to say that no amount of stretching makes the fly-hole large enough for my mighty wang to squeeze through, but discretion and good taste prevailed. As always.

(Joking, of course. I'm pretty sure my classification would be "Medium Caucasian.")

OK. So I gave this a shot. I had to get the bottom of my T shirt up out of the way, but it works. But I'll still be using the fly. Still easier for me. Different strokes (no pun intended). Mostly I guess this is another lesson that there are lots of ways to do most anything. Ignorance fought, or at least slightly reduced.

I must say this is a very entertaining thread.

As for me, I was raised on the fly. Un a ware. I bought some flyless boxer briefs. And spent too much time looking for the fly. The leg hole seems like a great option. I will try it.

I quit wearing underwear a few years ago, and good riddance. Useless stuff that tends to creep up my butt crack!

Now, what I really would want is a pouch between the legs of my trousers to keep my junk in. Like that codpiece they wore back in the middle ages, only it hadn't be separate.

(Also, bicycle saddles wouldn't necessarily have to try to emulate the horse saddle - I'd much rather sit on something like a rower's bench!)

You're nearly fifty years late on that. Back in the early 70s, I was in the Speech Club in high school. Everybody needed to prep themselves for the Debate Squad, so there were a shit-ton of Time and Newsweek back issues in the advisor's classroom for us to research our talking points (which we were expected to write down on index cards). Perusing those back issues was almost as much of a time-suck as TvTropes is today.

I can still remember the day I learned about these.

It was just a tad disconcerting, and the memory is etched into my brain two generations later.
