Let's talk frankly about butt sweat.

A lovely, bootylicious gentleman friend of mine is attending BMan for the first time this year, and we were talking about how to stay cool during the day, specifically as it refers to the dreaded SWAMP ASS.

Not having much experience battling swamp ass myself, I'm not sure if swamp ass really occurs on the playa, given the super-dry clime.  I've gotten a little sweaty 'neath the boobages in prior years, so I figure swamp ass is a very real possibility for those blessed with a bountiful backside.

If you're a guy (or a bootylicious gal), do you find that a certain model of underwear helps battle the butt sweat?

My (purely speculative) thoughts are:

1) Freeballing might be a good idea; lordy knows there are plenty of shirtcockin' dudes out there.  I imagine that keeps airflow to a maximum; but I also worry that if one does have a sweaty buttcrack, playa paste 'twixt the cheeks might be a real possibility... and a bad one. 

2) Cotton boxers would probably keep the playa dust out while allowing some airflow and movement.

3)  Wicking "sports" underwear, in some brief-like permutation, might be a good idea, but I don't know if that addresses the specific challenge of buttcrack sweat.  I'm sure it does just fine for buttcheek sweat, but that's not what we're talkin' about.

4) Thongs.  My gentleman friend isn't typically a thong guy, though I imagine he'd look pretty righteous in one.  I figure a thong would help air flow between the butt cheeks a bit.  Anyone with experience wanna share?

What do you think?

Thank you, my cherubs!

[Edit: He's going the kilt/sarong route... We're just trying to figure out what to wear under it, if anything.]
