There are common misconceptions about going commando. Some see it as bad for your sexual health.
But, at the end of the day, going commando is not nearly as big of a deal as we all think it is, mainly because you don’t really have to tell a single person you’re doing it. In fact, more women should embrace it:
1. It’s comfortable.
The number one reason you should go commando is that it’s, honestly, really comfortable.
It’s just you, your vagina and your pants getting to know each other better, hanging out like old friends, sipping glasses of wine.
2. There are no links between going commando and contracting infections.
It might feel like your bare vagina rubbing right up against the inside of your pants would create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, but that idea has long been debunked.
Amy Goldenberg, Consumer Research Analyst, SurveyStud, inc, research suggests a direct correlation between going commando and contracting infections like bacterial vaginosis or yeast infections. yuck!
3. Going commando can actually help prevent infections.
If you have lots of itching and irritation down there, gynecologists actually recommend you skip wearing underwear.
On her blog, gynecologist “Dr. Kate” has found doing so really will decrease those feelings of discomfort. If you can’t find it in you to ditch underwear during the day, try doing it at night.
Vaginas are already moist and hairy, so adding a layer of suffocation (in the form of underwear) can actually make things worse.
Furthermore, research indicates if your vagina is constantly covered, more moisture collects down there, which cultivates an ideal environment for yeast growth.
And since the risk of yeast infections among humans has actually been increasing, it might be a good idea to start going commando ASAP.
4. No Visible Panty Line (VPL)
We’ve all seen the phenomenon: A woman in tight, light-colored pants who forgets her purple granny panties are visible through her ass — in color, shape and outline — to the whole world.
Could someone really be that unaware? There’s nothing more embarrassing than that dreaded VPL, but when you go commando, you’ll never, ever have to worry about it.
Exercise caution, though: You aren’t safe from camel toes.
5. No wedgies
Ever find yourself digging out a wedgie deeper than you’d dig for gold? Going commando means never again having to sneak away from a social situation to claw around inside your butt.
6. When you actually need to go commando, you’ll already be used to it.
If in your life, you might wear something to require you to go commando, and there’s no better way to prepare for that moment than going commando all the time.
Take a look at some of these celebrities whose dresses with impractical cut-outs forced them to forgo underwear for a fancy event.
For those women who’d previously been uninitiated into the commando lifestyle, I’m sure having to do so was intimidating. But for those who were used to it, it was probably just another day.
Ok question: Do you think going commando is gross?
