11 Benefits Of Not Wearing Underwear
Why should you go commando?
If you care to know, “Going commando” is a way of saying that you are not wearing any underwear.
The term refers to soldiers who have been trained to be ready to fight at a moment’s notice.
So whenever you are not wearing any underwear, you are well, ready to go at any moment even without pesky undies in the way.
Putting all jokes aside, going commando may actually have some demonstrable benefits.
Now let us explore some of the reasons you may want to give an underwear-free lifestyle a shot.
Benefits of not wearing underwear
Because of the differences in male and female genitalia, men and women experience different benefits from not wearing underwear.
Going Commando For Women
Here are a few good reasons that going commando can be good for female genitalia:
1. It decreases the risk of developing yeast infections.
Candida, the bacteria responsible for yeast infections, thrives very well in warm, moist environments.
Putting on tight underwear or undies that are not made of a breathable material, such as cotton, can retain moisture in your genital area and make it easier for yeast bacteria to grow.
There is no research on whether going without underwear reduces year infection. So if you do wear underwear, be sure it is loose fitting and cotton.>>>>>CONTINUE READING HERE>>>>>
2. It can help decrease vaginal odor and discomfort:
When moisture from sweat and heat are trapped in the genital area by underwear, it can start smelling more strongly down there.
3. Skipping underwear can allow your sweat to evaporate
keep the odors to a minimum
reduce chafing made worse by moisture
4. It protects your vulva from injury:
The labia outside your vagina are made of delicate tissue similar to that of your lips.
Tight underwear made of artificial fabrics can chafe and irritate the labia and the skin around them.
This can as a matter of truth damage skin and expose you to injury, bleeding, or even infections. Plus, it just hurts.
5. Losing the underwear, especially if you are wearing loose-fitting clothes, can reduce or completely remove the possibility of chafing or damage.
6. It protects you from allergic reactions or sensitivities:
Many clothes contain artificial dyes, fabrics, and chemicals that can cause allergic reactions known as contact dermatitis.
This may take the form of bumps, rashes, blisters, or irritation. More serious reactions can cause tissue damage and infections.
Without underwear, you’ve got one less piece of clothing to worry about causing a reaction.
Going Commando For Men
Men experience some of the same benefits as women when they choose to go commando.
But there are a couple of additional benefits for men when going commando, mostly related to the unique physiology of the penis, scrotum, and testicles:
1. It prevents jock itch and other fungal infections:
Warm, wet genitals are a breeding ground for fungi like tinea cruris, or jock itch.
This can cause redness, irritation, and itching on your genitals.
2. Keeping your genitalia ventilated ensures that the area stays cool and dry, especially after prolonged periods of athletic activity.
3. It reduces the chances of irritation and injury:
Whether you wear underwear or not, it is possible to experience some chafing of the penis or scrotum against your clothing.
This can cause irritation and even injury, which may lead to infections if they happen often or are left untreated.
4. Wearing a loose, comfortable pair of jeans or shorts without underwear can actually reduce chafing to your genitals.
5 . Can influence sperm production:
The testicles hang outside of the body in the scrotum for a reason.
To produce sperm efficiently, the testicles need to stay at about 94°F (34.4°C)Trusted Source, a few degrees cooler than the body’s typical 97°F to 99°F (36.1°C to 37.2°C).
6. Wearing underwear, especially tight underwear, can push the testicles against your body and raise your scrotal temperature.
This makes the testicular environment less than ideal for sperm production, causing testicular hyperthermia.
Over time, this may lower your sperm count and increase your chances of infertility (although the jury may still be out on this because more research is needed).
