Today’s health tip is about taking a break from wearing underwear. I actually wasn’t too surprised to find this health tip because I’m constantly searching for health stuff, and sometimes I think I’ve heard it all.

That said, however, I wear underwear all the time. I can’t imagine not wearing underwear, especially out in public! But there are some health benefits of not wearing underwear when you go to bed at night (besides sex).




The Benefits of Not Wearing Underwear

Then, the reason you shouldn’t wear underwear: “Wearing no undergarments – or just cotton ones – allows the external genitals to dry and reduces bacteria growth that could otherwise make its way into your urethra and cause a bladder infection,” says Dr. Sherry Thomas, an OB-GYN and surgeon at St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, California on CNN’s “fast and easy tips.”

Letting ALL your body parts – not just the private ones – air dry can be very healthy. It’s most hygienic and healthy to wear underwear during your regular day, especially if you’re leaving the house.

The best time not to wear underwear is overnight

Have a bubble bath or relaxing shower, and sleep in your birthday suit! This gives your privates a chance to air out. If you tend to wear thong underwear a lot, this will also give your bummy a break.

Another benefit of not wearing underwear when you sleep is it may revive your sex life. If you’re coping with a chronic illness, you may not feel like being intimate with your partner. But if you wander around the house in the evening without wearing underwear, you may find yourself revving up! And we know that sex is very healthy for our bodies…so the surprising health tip of not wearing underwear may actually benefit your illness in the long run.

Why you should wear underwear when you’re out in public

Rashes, lice, infections, and discharge on your clothes are risks for now wearing underwear in public. So when I suggest you forego wearing underwear, I’m only talking about when you’re sleeping! I don’t recommend going commando under your office or school clothes (though some people do, and say they love it).

I welcome your thoughts on the benefits of not wearing underwear below…especially if you’ve been going commando and you think it’s healthy and awesome! :-)

    I agree sleep in your birthday suite and wear cotton under your work and school clothes. Gives all our part room to breath!

    I am male 44 years old. I wear loose Cotte underwear. But they ride up my crotch and makes it very uncomfortable. I tried performance pieces that wick and supposedly are anti-odor. But they are not made to wear as underwear. And Twhites are too constricting and too tight for my groin area. So I tried not wearing underwear and it was great. But I did that twice. And now I have pain at times coming from my urethra. But does not hurt when I pee. But I had a bicycle accident and got hit by a car just 3 days before. So is the pain from the accident or does a urinary infection happen that fast?

    If you don’t wear underpants under a short skirt, or wear skimpy ones, so that your bare butt is exposed to whatever you’re sitting on, you should keep a cloth with you to sit on so your bare butt won’t be in contact with a seat where other people’s bare butts may have been!
