Is It Unhealthy to Not Wear Undies?

We have seen celebutantes flash their privates to the paparazzi over and over again, so what's up with them not wearing underwear? While they might think it's trendy to go commando, is it healthy?

I never wear panties, usually a bra in public. I just feel normal without them riding up and bunching up.

Fefe912 From Correa I love during that time of the month. With that, welcome to my underwear party. Which I love that time of the month, is when you spread your legs wearing shorts, I'll see your underwear, and I spread my legs wearing shorts, you'll see my underwear.

Glad to see this...I love going commando and I HATE how panties are so constricting. Plus I don't have to worry about the UN-PC thing: panty lines. 8)

The no underwear while trying on clothes is disgusting! That's the reason they have signs for when you try on swimsuits, because it should be common courtesy to wear underwear when you try on pants/shorts!

I know a girl who ended up with a yeast infection b/c she wasn't wearing undies, but she's also a little dirty to begin with. I run a lot...and the fabric causes chafing. I don't wear underwear that much anymore b/c it irritates my skin.

Tis why when I go to sleep, I go commando. 1. Nice to let your bits air out 2. Easy access for the man LMAO!!

"I always thought that germs and bacteria could get in there." The vagina is pretty much a self-cleaning oven. It doesn't need a cover for protection unless you're forcing things into. And statistically speaking, underwear/commando has no impact on sexual assault. I agree that not wearing underwear while trying on clothing is pretty inconsiderate and gross.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with not wearing them around the house or to bed. What i do find unbelievably gross is knowing that there are women out there who are trying on pants, shorts etc. without wearing underwear and putting them back on the rack for the rest of us lucky ones to try on.IMO it's inconsiderate,nasty and not to mention unsanitary.

perhaps we should all just follow the protocol of not wearing undies while we sleep instead of all the time, especially on windy days while wearing dresses. modesty, ladies.

The only time I wear underwear is when Aunt Flo is in town.. Even cotton panties give me yeast infections. Was that TMI? The whole reason people think it's unhealthy is because that's something that mothers tell their daughters to keep them covered up :)

I tend to get very wet at time so not wearing any underwear wouldn't be a good idea. But, sometimes I don't wear underwear to bed.

I never thought it was unhealthy, just a little gross. I mean, it's not like things stay bone dry down there. I really don't want that getting on my skirt or pants. I go commando at night, though.

I don't believe thats right..Honestly my Mom and Grandma said you could get an yeast infection...I always thought that germs and bacteria could get in there....Either way its nasty, its also easy access for someone who decides to take advantage of you....Just my opinion maybe I'm over exaggerating but "Hey" things happen

It's not unhealthy but I still will wear underwear.

I always, always go without at night. I can't imagine anyone, male or female, who can wear underwear so close to an area so filled with bacteria all night AND all day... eww... so bacteria-y

I never wear undies. Just like catstarr, I have no butt and underwear never fits right, so I just stopped wearing them! But I also never wear short skirts, so it's not that big of a deal.

kiddylnd and ashcwebb - me three! My college roommate was shocked that I sometimes go commando to bed. During the day is not for me, though. I usually wear pants and that's just not comfortable.
