    This question reminds me of when I was going through Marine Corps boot camp. We wore "s k i v v i e s" - large boxer shorts with an ample opening. One morning while scrambling to zip up my utiliity pants as fast as I could, the tip of "Mr. Poppers" was poking out the opening and got caught! Man alive, did that ever hurt! Sure enough, it happened a couple of more times. You'd think once would have been enough to learn to be aware of what I was doing.

    On a serious note, I have a couple of pairs that have an opening with no fold or button or anything, so things can "pop out" unexpectedly and you need full re-arrangement maneouvers to recover the initial position.

    I think the opening is like the appendix or tonsils, kind of a mystery why they are still there. But you know, men's underwear with no opening looks WEIRD. That little upside down Y thing is just weird. And then there's the men's undies with no Y or anything, those look just like ladies underwear.

    In the 1930s, union suits went out of favor and boxers and briefs became the 'vogue'. The 1930s saw another major innovation, that is easy elastic waists replaced button, snap, and tie closures. At around this time companies began selling buttonless drawers fitted with an elastic waistband, which were the first true boxer shorts. The name is derived from the shorts worn by professional fighters. The word "underpants" also entered the dictionary.

    'Jockey' began making briefs in 1930 but it was not until 1934 with the advent of 'Jockey' Y-vent briefs that the design of men¹s underwear made a leap forward. It was the first time an easy-to-use diagonal vent was applied to boxers and briefs. Today one can buy jockey shorts which are knit fabric, with access pouch or flap, usually at or near true waist, leg bands at tops of thighs. Traditional high and lox cut jockey shorts have vertical flaps or diagonal flaps. In 1936 ŒMunsingwear¹ developed the 'kangeroo pouch' underwear which used a horizontal vent.

    Apparently it's for easy access.
