Doing some laundry in between checking my work computer, see my sons swim shorts and it reminds me,

cut the net diaper out leave it? 

When i get a new pair, as im cutting the tags off, im cutting the ridiculous crotch net out. Makes me feel like im wearing a diaper. 
 

Do you cut the net or leave it?

I think you're missing the whole purpose of the thing.  When you jump in the water your suit gets wet.  When you get out of the water, your suit sticks to your skin.  Without that mesh inside there, the suit sticks to your....you know.  Old ladies and children will have to avert their eyes.

Remove.

Having the net up the crack of my ass is uncomfortable. The old ladies and children will have to deal.

Depends on the shorts. My Patagonia surf shorts don't have a net and don't need one as they are pretty slim-legged. Other swim shorts are much more loose-fitting and could easily ride up at inopportune times. YMMV.

Personally I like to keep the huevos from swinging around. Especially considering the greater chance of pain inducing contact during activities involving swimwear.

In reply to secretariata :

 

This may end up being a boxers/briefs thing. Im boxers and cant stand the net.

Leave in, that way if I have to run, I don't bruise my inner thighs.

I leave it in.  Removing it and wearing nothing but the swim trunks (does anybody call them "trunks" anymore?) invites a "wardrobe malfunction."  Not that I care, but the wife seems to want me to keep my junk covered in public.

Cut it out or generally buy board shorts.

I just wear some fast drying boxer briefs under to prevent wardrobe malfunctions.

I've never cut the liner out. I prefer all loose items to be secured before athletic activity, including swimming.

Who cares about wardrobe malfunctions, the shorts are only there to keep things legal.... (in some states)

Oregon has very different public nudity laws. Nudity is not a lewd act.

You can be nekid on your property (tend your garden in the buff) Sunbathe, hot tub, etc.

We have the annual naked bike ride through downtown in Portland, and many naked beaches.

However even in the prudish state of California, I cut the net out of any swim trunks (uncomfortable).

Every suit I have had has this problem, mesh or no.  I go the athletic support route.
