I have ample thighs. If I was a Kardashian or trying to get Instagram likes then I could use this to my advantage. However I'm a pale-skinned ethnically Eastern European male with a decent amount of hair on my body. Not exactly the kind of legs you want to be flaunting on the 'gram.
Not only are they not photo-worthy, they're also a nightmare if I'm wearing the wrong kind of underwear and have to do any amount of walking. I'm talking instant chafing, instant discomfort, instant redness. It's just bad news all around. And don't even get me started on when/if I have to adjust my junk.
The creators of Eletrunks believe they have found an elegant solution for thighly-gifted men who are in dire need of adjusting their bits.
And it's all in its unique, shaft-independence technology. Meaning you won't have to put your hands down your pants.
That's right, no skin-on-skin contact and then being forced into a situation where you're shaking someone's hand with the knowledge that they will be touching your balls and/or penis by proxy.
"Eletrunks literally let you elevate your manhood without reaching below your waistband. They also create chafe-free zones under the legs and keep you from sticking to yourself. Your manhood goes into the pouch, keeping it away from your legs. When you need to readjust, you simply use the patented 'Lifter,' a string that attaches from the waistband to the bottom of the pouch, and it elevates your entire manhood." - Eletrunks site.
The company's founder, Michael Walker came up with the idea while motorcycling through Peru after quitting his job.
It sounds like he wanted his balls to feel as free as he did at the moment, I guess.
"I quit my job last September to travel through Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. Somewhere in the first week of Ecuador I convinced myself to buy a motorcycle to carry me through the rest of my journey. Here is where I realized how incredibly uncomfortable each type of men's underwear can be and how there is no true functionality. Somewhere crossing the Colombia boarder the idea for Eletrunks crystallized," he said in an interview with Mashable.
And after testing out a few prototypes, Walker is now offering the boxers in a variety of colors.
There was even an Instagram contest that allowed users to come up with funny names for the eletrunks. These bad boys up top are Rob BurgUndies.
This pair is called Gray(s)Kale.
In fact, Walker openly acknowledges how silly his product is and gets a kick out of them every day.
"I haven't stopped laughing since it's inception. This response holds true across the board. Nearly every time I tell people what I'm doing they say laugh, followed by, 'yesss!' Needless to say, the overwhelming positive response motivates me to move forward."
Walker also plans on selling long-legged boxer briefs and compression shorts in the future.
"I haven't stopped laughing since it's inception. This response holds true across the board," he said. "Nearly every time I tell people what I'm doing they say laugh, followed by, 'yesss!' Needless to say, the overwhelming positive response motivates me to move forward."
So guys: are you for or against the separation of ball and thigh? (h/t mashable)
