Popular Gay Underwear & Jockstrap Brands

It’s no secret that gay men love their underwear. Finding the right pair for any occasion can be a huge deal! Fortunately, there’s a huge variety of gay underwear brands out there to choose from.

In recent years, traditionally popular brands have vastly expanded their collections, while plenty of new and smaller ones have popped up, offing even more unique designs and styles.

Whether you prefer colorful and flashy or subdued and elegant, I’ll help you make the best choice! These are all the gay underwear and jockstrap brands worth a look, along with their signature styles.


C-IN2 offers over 15 unique collections, each tailored to a different theme, fit, or function. From the football-inspired Scrimmage Jock to the comfortable Core Trunk, there’s a pair for every occasion.

You can’t miss the brightly-colored H+A+R+D Fly Front Trunk, and the C-Theory Low Rise Brief (I have these and love how comfortable they are).


Jockmail stands out for its athletic, hyper-masculine jockstrap designs that always keep guys coming back for more.

I especially like their signature ultra-wide belt jockstrap for it’s textured front pouch fabric and the stately thick waistband. You can grab one in a bunch of different colors.

Jockmail is also one of the only gay brands that sell long johns! These are begging to be worn at a gay ski week evening event.

If you’ve got a sportswear fetish, take a look at Jockmail’s lace-up wide-belt jockstrap.


2(X)IST is a perfect choice if you like gay underwear that’s more conservative, but still has some color and flare. The brand has a lot of simple underwear and jockstrap designs. I also love their form-fitting and comfortable briefs.

Make sure to check out their hugely popular Sliq Micro Y-Back Thong. It’s made of polyester blended with 12% spandex. I love the chic earthy color options and subtle branding on the waistband.

You can also find plenty of 2(X)IST products on Amazon, which can be much more affordable if you go with a multipack.


Garçon’s gay underwear collections are full of color and have one of the most recognizable logos. Their styles are bold and fun (like the SOBE Briefs pictured below) yet maintain a classy aesthetic.

Garçon gay jockstrap

Not all Garçon underwear comes in loud colors, though. You can still make a bold statement with styles like the sexy military thong, or a pair of baby blue bamboo briefs (now try saying that five times fast)!

Also less branded, the Brooklyn Briefs are another sophisticated option.


BSHETR is an incredibly affordable brand that makes sporty gay underwear styles with bold athletic colors without being overly flashy. Their classic sets of black briefs are a top pick, too.

BSHETR gay underwear brand

You can buy multi-packs of BSHETR brief or jockstrap color combinations, making a new gay jockstrap collection super affordable. Where else can you get a set of 4 jocks for under $30 bucks?

Product reviews on Amazon are fantastic too, so you know their stuff is good.

Arjen Kroos

Arjen Kroos has become a wildly popular gay underwear brand, with affordable prices and one of the biggest ranges in styles and fits.

They sell briefs, boxers, jockstraps, panties, and plenty of other sexy underwear-related items. They continually elevate their styles, too. One of my recent favorites is their sexy camo jock.

Reviews of Arjen Kroos products are so high, it makes an underwear purchase pretty reassuring. Given the brand’s popularity, there are even photos posted by reviewers showing how well their underwear fits!

Their popular mesh sport jockstrap has over 10,000 ratings. At under $10, you can’t go wrong!

Brave Person

You’ve got to see the Brave Person Store if you love thongs, G-strings, or narrow-banded jockstraps. Their products come in white, grey, black, and a few fun, earthy colors.

g string jockstrap

I particularly love their white athletic supporter which is like a hybrid between a thong and briefs. The front bands that connect the waistband to the front pouch are unique for sure.

Brave Person’s low-rise microfiber briefs are among the brand’s top sellers and are incredibly inexpensive!

Cellblock 13

Cellblock 13 is best known for sexy, fetish-inspired jockstraps. They also make versions that can attach to a body harness or suspenders. 

The Tight-End Jockstrap is one of their signature designs, which comes in a range of colors. It’s super sexy and looks good on just about everyone.

A few other Cellblock 13 styles I love are the Linebacker Jockstrap, and the thin-banded Swimmer Jock.


MuscleMate makes some scandalously skimpy gay underwear. They’ve got 100% spandex G-string undies, jockstraps, and super revealing Leopard print thongs. It’s also shockingly inexpensive too. Almost everything is less than $10.

Revealing in the back, but conservative in the front, I specifically want to share MuscleMate’s premium thong underwear, with a fabric that has an eye-catching sheen.


Founded in Barcelona, Addicted sells a massive range of clothing for anyone and everyone LGBTQ. Thongs, skirts, hoodies, flip flops—the list is endless. 

The Addicted Fetish website has the sexiest of all their collections with products like Allover Zip Rub briefs that imitate rubber, bottomless briefs, and a tantalizing see-through mesh jockstrap.

Addicted gay underwear brand

You’ve probably heard of Addicted, especially from advertisements and promotions at the world’s biggest circuit festivals. Most of their stuff includes the full Addicted brand name, while some products just show the signature AD logo.

Addicted is a brand known for quality. There’s a reason everyone loves them! I own quite a few pairs of Addicted Fetish jockstraps and they’re some of my favorites.


Sydney-based AussieBum is known for their iconically fun, playful, and sexy gay underwear designs that scream “fun in the sun down under.”

In addition to underwear, AussieBum also produces gay swimwear and other lifestyle apparel lines. And while the brand has expanded immensely over the years, every garment is designed by founder Sean Ashby himself.


Pump is a mainstay among traditional gay underwear brands. With contrasting colored stitching and fun color blocks, a lot of their briefs and boxers have a “sexy jock” look.

Pump gay underwear brand

Popular for being supportive, Pump’s briefs and jockstraps are their best sellers. They’re sold in a few different places too. Buying Pump products on Underwear Expert allows you to mix and match with other brands.

Pump underwear on Amazon is also an option, where you can typically receive your package faster!


Need an extra large pouch? Wildmant has you covered, literally. They sell both underwear and swimwear for guys that need a little extra fabric for their package!

Wildmant’s Duo Big Boy Pouch Jockstrap is perfect if you’re looking to show off. For a little more coverage, check out their Big Boy Pouch Boxer Brief.


AWRY makes gay underwear even sexier with collections of especially revealing styles.

Their Cheeky Thong Briefs are a signature style, combining the fit of a brief with the look of a thong. These only cover the waist area to showcase a ton of booty!

AWRY gay underwear

AWRY’s jockstrap styles are also unique—different from anything I’ve seen. The APEX Jockstrap adds some flare with bands that connect in the front.

I think AWRY’s Jock Boxers are awesome too, giving the support of a jock while offering coverage. Or, if you want to bare as much as possible, try the RAW V-String Thong.


Papi gay underwear designs are both contemporary and inspired by Hispanic heritage. The brand sells briefs, trunks, and jockstraps, and is especially popular for sexy men’s thongs.

I love the slim and sporty waistband on Papi’s athletic supporter, which has incredibly high reviews. Their low-rise briefs are another of their super popular gay underwear styles.

Nasty Pig

Nasty Pig is one of my personal favorite gay underwear brands for their deep, bold color combinations. I love their pig logo, too!

While their products are not overly expensive, Nasty Pig jockstraps and underwear tend to cost more than other brands. You can count on quality, though!

Nasty Pig underwear and accessories

Nasty Pig’s underwear accessories are also super popular. They sell tube socks that are perfect for circuit parties, sex parties, or anywhere else you might be wearing underwear with sneakers.

For something similar but cheaper, these sexy tube socks come in some fun bold colors.

SKYSPER is a relatively new gay underwear brand that’s taking Amazon by storm. They’ve created cotton stretch jockstraps that look like briefs from the front and a jockstrap from the back! The design is so sexy.

Their breathable mesh gym underwear is a bolder variation of the unique briefs-jockstrap style. The beautiful colors perfectly contrast against the waistbands, while offering a breathable solution.

SKYSPER has dozens more gay underwear and jockstrap styles worth checking out, like their skimpy thong jockstrap and sexy open-back trunks.

Gruff Pup

Gruff Pup is also new to the gay underwear scene, and the brand has quickly gained popularity for hyper-masculine jockstraps and circuit party gear like singlets.

Their Combat Jock is built for performance. With high-vis neon, this jockstrap will easily get you noticed.

Gruff Pup’s Pocket Jockstrap is perfect for when you need quick access to personal items. It’s super useful. I’m honestly surprised more brands don’t have a product like this. No more keeping your cards in your front pouch!


A designer gay underwear brand from Australia, TEAMM8 offers a range of fashionable styles, from minimalist thongs to cozy cotton boxer shorts. Among all their styles though, you can count on full frontal coverage.

Australian gay underwear brand

Like their Sheer Thong most of TEAMM8’s thongs taper down from the waistband into a v-shape, making them great for accentuating the size of your butt!

I also love how the waistbands on TEAMM8’s Spartacus jockstraps collection have a soft sheen to them. You also can’t miss their awesome part-mesh Score jockstrap collection. These are really nice!

Joe Snyder

Joe Snyder is a popular gay underwear brand known for eye-catching men’s thongs and g-strings. 

You can’t miss their “Mini-Cheek” underwear. These are designed to show off just a little extra lower booty, which is sure to turn some heads!

A couple of other fun styles are the bulge-enhancing boxer trunks and the classic Joe Snyder jockstrap.

Barcode Berlin

Barcode Berlin is a German gay jockstrap and underwear brand that I want to mention specifically for their elegant Sergey Basic jockstrap.

It may look similar to other thick-banded jocks, but this one incorporates some silicone in the bands for a little extra grip.

Barcode gay underwear


Cocksox is an Australian brand that produces underwear for gay men with unique supportive and enhancing pouch designs. Their slogan is “supporting manhood since 2006!”

My favorite products from Cocksox are their lightweight nylon-spandex trunks and Italian mesh sport underwear, which come in some fantastic bright neon colors.

Andrew Christian

Andrew Christian is one of those iconic LGBTQ underwear brands that’s instantly recognizable. They’re known for flashy and flamboyant styles, like the Bulge C-Ring Briefs and the scandalous “SEX” Bamboo Jockstrap

popular gay underwear brand

Other styles I love and recommend checking out are the sexy Thick Brief with “THICK” lettering across the waistband, and the patterned open-back Cabana Air Jock.

Andrew Christian’s Amazon store typically offers less expensive items. It may not have as many styles available, but everything is usually at least 20% lower in price.

Underwear Expert

Underwear Expert is the leading gay men’s underwear subscription brand. After you choose your favorite styles and delivery frequency, they’ll send you a curated box of the latest underwear designs.

Purchasing specific underwear directly from Underwear Expert’s website is another option, although these styles aren’t the absolute newest designs that come in the subscription box.

Code 22, Wood, and Diesel are just a few to choose from. They carry products from pretty much every gay underwear brand.


RUFSKIN’s California-crafted range of gay underwear collections go beyond briefs, trunks, and thongs. They offer elegant bulge-enhancing bodysuits, low-chest tank top undershirts, and booty-enhancing leggings.

Deserving of a special mention, Rufskin’s Gogo underwear is a hybrid between briefs and a thong that beautifully helps you showcase those buns!


TOF PARIS is a gay clothing and underwear brand with an enormous selection of products. In addition to underwear and jockstrap collections, the brand sells swimwear, party accessories, and fetish wear.

The fetish underwear collection is my absolute favorite, which includes both leather and vinyl garments.

JJ Malibu

JJ Malibu is known for their bright and playful gay underwear styles. Different eye-catching designs include exotic prints, enormous bulge pouches, mesh fabric, and a ton of color.

Their hot pink Club Kid Briefs are sure to turn heads at any party. Another signature style I love is JJ Malibu’s Ribbed Side-Tie Brief.


BANGWEAR is a relatively new gay underwear brand offering some fun and innovative designs for super low prices on Amazon. One of their most unique styles is the Tanga Brief, which has a removable pouch.

gay men's jockstrap

I love the deep grey of their classic jockstrap, too. And lastly, you can’t miss BANGWEAR’s Scrimmage Drawstring jock

Coyote Jocks

The Coyote Jocks brand perfectly blends chic styles with revealing fits. Their briefs, jockstraps, and thongs come in elegantly soft tones like the grey sage t-string thong.

Coyote Jocks also sells athletic micro-tank undershirts that match the style of briefs in the same color.

More Gay Underwear Brands & Styles

There are plenty more men’s gay underwear brands out there to tell you about, so I’ll keep things short here with some specific product recommendations.

Or, you can always browse my custom list of gay underwear and jockstraps on Amazon.

Goldberg G gay jockstrap

Love a super-thick waistband? Goldberg G has an awesome athletic jockstrap that comes in a bunch of colors.

Jockstraps by Broddle have a similar look, with a few more interesting colors.

A little more flashy, this D.M. thick-waistband jock has bold printed lettering all around.

Another highly branded option is Calvin Klein’s cotton stretch jock. These come in black and white and are perfect for everyday wear.

gym gay underwear

The jockstrap brand Gym sells an inexpensive, no-frills 1-inch waistband athletic jock. It’s nothing luxurious, but it does the job! There’s also Gym’s ultra-classic all-white jock.

Aserlin is great if you prefer underwear with a little more coverage and without huge letters across the waistband. Their styles are just as colorful and sexy as the best-known gay underwear brands.

Aserlin’s boxer brief styles or even their longer, form-fitting sport boxers are easy choices for everyday wear.

inexpensive gay underwear

It’s also worth mentioning Arjen Kroos again for their ultra-silky and breathable trunks, which come in six different colors. I love how the inside fabric is a different color, which matches the tiny logo on the waistband.

Sexier yet still minimally branded, try a pair of Sumaba sexy thong briefs. They provide a lot of coverage in the front considering they’re a thong! 

gay jockstrap without logo

The Tyhenga performance jock is also incredibly popular with thousands of five-star reviews—and it has no brand or logo whatsoever.

Fruit of the Loom is another utilitarian choice for everyday wear. Lots of gay men love the classic style of this all-American brand. Or, try a pair of Hanes underwear.

Another minimally branded underwear option is KNITLORD’s breathable bamboo boxer briefs.
