Ah, the freedom of not wearing underwear – it’s a feeling like none other. Those who are so adamantly against it probably have never tried it. For every one reason you should wear underwear (sorry, can’t actually think of one). there are 20 more for why you shouldn’t. Here are 13 reasons why panty-free is the way to be:

  1. It’ll keep you cooler. This is twofold.  It’s summer and the weather is scorching. Removing even that small barrier between you and your pants is a quick way to cool things off down there and let your lady breathe. Plus, it takes a comfortable and confident woman to step out sans undergarments.
  2. It provides easy access for your intimate moments. When you and your guy can’t seem to keep your hands off each other, he’ll have one less layer to crawl through. Text him to let him know you are going commando and it’ll drive him mad until he can come see for himself.
  3. Say goodbye to wedgies. Adios uncomfortable elastic digging into your stomach and thighs! To be honest, underwear just aren’t very comfortable and it can be a real bitch trying to keep them in their proper place.
  4. Your gyno approves. All that nonsense your mother told you about wearing underwear being more hygienic was just that: nonsense. Bacteria breed faster in hot damp areas, so your panties are unknowingly playing host to a host of unwanted visitors. Don’t believe me, just ask your gyno!
  5. No more panty lines! The thong was supposed to solve this problem, but it brought with it a whole new set of problems, like perma-wedgie. It’s bad enough when your undergarment slowly works its way between your cheeks, it’s another thing when it’s intentionally there all day.
  6. You can ditch the granny panties. If you make a habit of ditching your underwear altogether, you’ll never be caught dead in those embarrassing granny panties.
  7. It takes less effort to get ready. Remember the days when you couldn’t leave the house if your bra and underwear didn’t match? Busy girls on the go don’t have time for all that, so pick a bra, any bra, and be done with it.
  8. It’s liberating. You’ll feel free, the way you do when you let your boobs out of their bra cage at night. Unfortunately for your boobs, everyone can tell when they aren’t covered up, but this can be your own little secret.
  9. You’ll release more pheromones. You know, those chemicals you release that make you irresistible to men?
  10. Your laundry pile won’t be so high. Laundry is on the top 5 list of most annoying chores ever, why not lessen your load, so to speak?
  11. There’s less embarrassment from the TSA. If you’re that one person on the flight who gets randomly searched, you won’t have to worry about some creepy TSA agent manhandling your delicates. As far as your vibrator goes, that’s another story.
  12. Victoria’s secret has been out. Victoria, the secret is out: your underwear are cheaply made and overpriced. Use the money you’ll save to invest in a better bra, because according to research 80% of you are wearing the wrong size.
  13. There are plenty of peeing perksOkay, so it may not be ladylike, but who among us hasn’t gotten herself into a “cop a squat” situation? Life is just easier when you can just let it flow.
