Going Commando.....Not as Taboo as you May Think

Did she say "Going Commando?"

Yes! Yes I am going to talk about the act of not wearing underwear....Ha ha. Sorry Victoria's Secret....you are not my friend.

I hate underwear. I really do. I wear it from time to time when I HAVE TO, otherwise I skip it all together. I know I may be getting some looks now picking up the kids from school, but whatever--you know you do it too! Going Commando is FANTASTIC. No underwear lines, nothing crawling into places it shouldn't be, less LAUNDRY, and best of all undergarments are EXPENSIVE.  I would rather spend 50 dollars more on a fabulous pair of jeans than spend it on what is going to make me uncomfortable all day long.

Here are some CELEBRITIES who are also Commanders of Commando and are proud of it:
Kate Hudson
Christina Aguilera
Mathew McConaughey
Kate Winslet
Paris Hilton
Britney Spears
Orlando Bloom (Hott)
Miley Cirus
Katy Perry
Kim Kardashian
And i am sure there are many more.

Now lets look at the benefits of  not wearing any Panties:

*No underwear bill (Sorry again, VS)

*As I stated-less LAUNDRY! This is not only economical but better for the environment

*As a woman a little fresh air down there is a GOOD THING

*It is advised for women to not wear underwear to bed to prevent yeast and odor, so ladies if you have problems with things that make you itch down under, your favorite panty may be the culprit. (no joke, look it up)

*No Underwear lines and NO NASTY THONG, a man totally invented those.....yuck

*It is soooooooo COMFORTABLE

*And last but not least, it is DAMN SEXY. My husband commented a few weeks ago how good I looked in my jeans then his mind wondered and thought hey shes not wearing any underwear. Yea he thought it was sexy, and I bet most men do

I honestly don't go commando because it is sexy--for me, it just works. I am comfortable and healthy and happy without cotton up my cracks. Adam and Eve would be proud.

Still not convinced?  Here is a funny excerpt I found online. It cracked me up and it has some truths as well. Geared more towards a man, but ladies I know you will giggle. Enjoy

This girl should have Gone Commando

The 10 Commandments of Going Commando

1. Thou shalt not take a yoga class.

Without underwear, downward dog can quickly become boastful snake—a position not suitable for any yoga setting. If you've ever had the misfortune of attending such a class, you already know that every change of pose is, in a word, unpleasant. So, remember: Namaste…now put that thing away.
2. Thou shalt not make more daily "adjustments" than necessary.
A man's tender bits are not unmovable structures like Stonehenge. Since they're a work in progress—constantly shifting, hiding, and rocking to and fro—there comes a time every so often when a manual adjustment must be made. But forgoing the cotton shackles isn't a license to be more "hands-on" with your boys than usual.
3. Thou shalt remember the wisdom of Fight Club.
The first rule of going commando is you don't talk about going commando. Boasting or even copping to the fact that you're unencumbered down below is to be avoided.
4. Thou shalt use Gold Bond.
While leaving the Underoos at home can be liberating on one front, it may also create another small problem, in the form of a sweaty undercarriage. Fear not, for there is Gold Bond—a quick sprinkle of the white powder is as magical as a fairy's dust.
5. Thou shalt not try on new shorts or pants.
In a society that frowns upon twice dipping a chip, the thought of double dipping something far more personal than crudités—into a pair of jeans you don't even own yet—is about as undignified as it gets. In fact, when you go out commando, your pants should not come off unless someone else removes them for you.
6. Thou shalt not draw added attention to one's bulge.
Trust us, your dirty little secret isn't so secret after all; there's a good chance people are going to notice. So there's no need to throw a parade, or make eye contact with complete strangers and motion downtown, just to formally announce that there's a party in your pants.
7. Thou shalt go commando by choice, not in disdain for doing laundry.
Forgo the grape smugglers for reasons of comfort, not laziness. Besides, if doing a load of laundry is too much work, chances are these rules will seem positively draconian.
8. Thou shalt not make comments about one's "junk."
It often seems that when a man loses a piece of clothing, he thinks it's perfectly acceptable to lose his manners. While primal feelings are a natural reaction to physical freedom, bear in mind that when it comes to your family jewels, commentary is best left in the vault.
9. Thou shalt not assume the barn door is always closed.
A functioning zipper is all that separates your manhood from a wild romp through the unsuspecting streets. It's wise to assume the door is open at all times—and then thank your lucky stars when it isn't.
10. Thou shalt strut proudly.
Whether in life or in underwear, the less baggage the better. After all, God gave us each the perfect packaging; there's no need to put a bow on a masterpiece. So, provided you follow the rules outlined above, rest assured that it is perfectly all right to lose the drawers and let your boys breathe.

  1. This just made me laugh! I have to admit I have never gone commando, but if it's for health reasons maybe I'll consider it every now and then :o)

    1. Ha ha I'm glad it' made you giggle :)

  2. Goodness! You GO, girl! I, too, have never gone commando. . . in fact, quite the opposite! I have a bit of an underwear fetish. Wait, let me rephrase that; an underwear obsession (it really isn't anything kinky or weird)! I loooooove buying sexy panties! I have over 200 pairs (give or take 10 or so). I know, crazy, right??? But, there's always room for more. There ARE 365 days in a year, after all.
