Men's Underwear: What His Underthings Say About Him (PHOTOS)

It seems that just about every men's magazine has an article about what women's underwear says about them, but what about men's undergarments? Is your guy a briefs lover? Boxer shorts? Boxer briefs? Each one means something drastically different.
