  • There are a lot more people going commando than you think.
  • If apprehensive about freeballing at school because of gym class, follow and get used to all the steps above before taking this step.
  • The least noticeable pants or shorts to wear while freeballing are jeans and khaki or plaid shorts.
  • Basketball shorts are great for going commando if they're not see-through. They're very comfortable and cool. Don't worry, it's not as obvious as you think. It's no more noticeable than wearing boxers.
  • Erections may happen more often when you first start freeballing because your naked penis is not used to the bare fabric of your pants.
  • When you get completely used to it, you can throw away as much of your underwear as you like. Some people keep a pair just in case, but many people find they like the idea of not owning a single pair. Do what feels right for you.
  • If you're bold and confident and want to be the "cool kid," don't worry if other people know you go commando. Many of the coolest athletes, actors, and musicians go without underwear and they proudly state it.
  • If you have an erection, think about something different, and don't touch it.


  • If wearing shorts, especially very short shorts, be careful not to open them too much or you will show people what's there.
  • Be prepared to do your own laundry, and frequently.
  • Do not wear sweatpants or basketball/mesh shorts when first starting as your unsupported genitals flopping and moving is obvious to everyone.
  • Try to not tell people until you are in college, where most people are mature enough to handle it.
