If you are suffering from episodes of incontinence then it might be practical. But why else do you need one?

They have underwear liner for women. I was thinking why not one for men?

Women tend to have significantly more discharge than men do, and not just during menstruation. why have one for men?

I have basically the same opinion as chiralSPO....Noting that I have never noticed a continual discharge in a male as I have in women....I agree men really do not have much in the department of discharge in the same meaning as women.... after raising too boys and a daughter myself and husband..and being in charge of all of our laundry... Men in my experience rarely excrete a normal run of the mill discharge like that of a womans body ..They are just built diferently...Now sperm and or ejaculate I do not qualify as a discharge needing a pad although I believe there have been cases of men who have issues with uncontrolled ejaculation where in a liner may be practical in some cases..we all have different physical issues. So like,  I believe above, someone mentioned that they are readily available if needed...

Urinary incontinence can result from quite minor spinal injury with no other symptoms. If it is limited it may be less risky to contain the symptom rather than treat the cause.

On a larger scale, "astronaut diapers" are available and useful for divers and military pilots. When you gotta go, you gotta go, even in space. Some military aircraft have a pee tube but it doesn't always fit snugly (especially at low temperatures) so a bit of absorbent padding is a good idea.

In the US they most certainly do exist. 14 years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. A quick removal of the offending body part saved my life but left me incontinent. I have since remained fairly incontinent. I use an absorbent brief made by Depends. 

I am 71 years old and have come to accept this condition without complaining: it is just part of growing old.  :>)

There are also liners. Depends on flow and activity level.

OK nurse, can I get some Geritol? (http://geritol.com/)

LOL...nice to see ya Jim bob....I have seriously had issues with similar leakaves after my last child in 88 but the last few years with other health issues it has become more irratating..not jst when coughing or snezing like days gone by... now when the i need to go visit the loo hits..I go or else.no waiting 5 minutes because then its to late and gravity increases the on flow..my muscles from bad hip and illnesses have changed like with Jimbob..our ages are different mildly but body changes similar...
FROM YOUR FIRST POST ....I read it as though you had no idea that they made incontinance pads, liners, or undergarments for men....? IS THIS AN ACCURRATE READ ON MY PART OR WERE YOU JUST INQUIRING ABOUT LINERS IN GENERAL?
