Q: I’m worried that the sex with my girlfriend is getting kind of routine, even with experimenting with new positions and stuff. What else can I do to spice things up in the sack?

You are far from alone in your concerns about the spiciness of your sex life. Many of us share the same concerns about how to keep sex fresh and exciting. Since you’ve already experimented with positions, why not try a different approach?

Women have understood the power of this bedroom trick for hundreds of years: Funderwear. Sexy lingerie, an adorable teddy, heck, even one of your too-large T-shirts can be converted into sexy-time apparel in the hands of a creative lady.

Overall, men have lagged behind their female counterparts in the world of erotic fashion, neglecting this part of their intimate lives in favor of sports, video games and watching grass grow. Many men aren’t even aware of the issue. You may think your Light Saber is sexy, but the Star Wars boxers your mom bought you in the 8th grade aren’t convincing anyone.

For those who have yet to dabble in designer underwear, there is literally no end to the choices. We are all familiar with boxers, briefs and the hybrid boxer briefs. But there are many more “cuts” such as trunks, low-rise trunks and briefs, long underwear, and for the brave and adventurous, thongs, bikinis, jockstraps and G-strings. If your boys need a little rousing support, there are even underwear with built-in “shape enhancing” technologies. And each of those cuts comes in hundreds of colors and dozens of patterns. There is a kaleidoscope of wonderful choices to give your peacock the feathers it deserves.

I know what many of you are thinking: “Those things sacrifice comfort for style and I’m just not down for that.” However, the people who design and make them have spent their lives turning the development of underwear into a science of blending comfort and style. Ergonomic pouch designs that will treat your family jewels like a king in a hammock are the new norm. You can find skivvies that will make you think you’re wearing a cloud. There is underwear out there that is so comfortable, so bendable, flexible, sexable, that your girlfriend might actually get that strip tease she always asks for.

It is true that you won’t be finding these magical underpants at 10 for $10 at the local Walmart. They come with a price tag. You might pay $15 to $30 for a single pair of underwear, but the investment will be well worth it. Besides, the economy could use some help. Get out there; stimulate the economy by picking up a few pairs. Then you can impress your lady friend with your new “stimulus package.”
