Support for the "boys"

OK, if anyone can relate, you guys can......
I'm looking for some underwear that will help with the support issues that affects me when I ride. You know, the issues you have when you are hot and constantly moving around on the bike seat. The uncomfortable pinching and lack of support.
Any advice on brand/style?

Saxx Platinum briefs work for me. Never thought I'd spend $35.00 on a pair of skivvies, but they're worth it...

Sometimes a pair of simple Hanes briefs are the best. Good support and no seams to sit on. The lack of seams where you sit is the key for me. https://www.amazon.com/Hanes-Classic...ts=p_4%3AHanes

I'm wearing these Ex Oficio - linked here from Amazon.
Ex Oficio is known for travel clothes, so these are a tech fabric and can be hand-washed and dry out by morning.
The seams are very flat and are not in any of the sit areas. Absolutely no issues for me with 9-10 hour days.

I don't have hair on my legs so no problem!
I was a hockey goalie for almost 40 years, back in that era we wore regular hockey socks under the leg pads and obviously it just never allowed hair to grow on my legs. Smooth as a baby's behind. Makes my wife jealous

Highly recommend Separatec brand because as the name implies they have a separate section for both gentlemen's parts and really are comfortable, will never go back to normal underwear - search amazon for them as they are available in various materials and styles eg:

I agree no seams where you sit on it is a big plus.

For hot weather riding though, cotton undies are not ideal. They get soaked in sweat then act as a barrier. I've got a bunch of the Cycle Gear Heat Out compression base layer. Not only do they not have seams, they wick sweat off you body and, combined with mesh jacket/pants, make evaporative cooling work much more efficiently.
