How Many Americans Are Regularly Going Commando
Hands up – Who’s going commando right now?
If you were a fan of the show Friends, you learned from Joey Tribbiani what commando was in the early 90’s.
Have You Considered It?
When you’re getting dressed, do you ever consider just not wearing underwear? And seriously – how good does it feel to rip your undies off at the end of the day?
I imagine for men, it can be very freeing. But I wonder how many people actually live the commando lifestyle.
Apparently, if you never consider going without, you’re in the minority.
Undies Or No Undies?
In a new poll from You Gov, 40% of people say they “never” go commando. 35% of people say they do it from time to time, if not always. Another 19% say they have gone without underwear, but “rarely.”
Here’s the fun, or funny – or maybe just surprising part. About 10% of people say they “often” go commando, and 7% of people said they “always” go commando!
Most people say they go back and forth. Hmm…
So Who Is Dropping Their Drawers?
The people more likely to go commando? That would be men under 45, living out West.
Not wearing underwear to sleep is very common. 19% of people say they “always” ditch the undies when they sleep, another 11% say they “often” do. 32% say “never.” They just sleep with their gems all bundled up.
It’s All About Comfort:
Another question to consider: Is going commando acceptable?
For the most part, people were split on this one – fifty-fifty. Around 40% of people said it’s “always” or “usually” acceptable. 40% of you said it was “always” or “usually” unacceptable. A flat no go on no underwear!
What it comes down to is comfort. What is comfortable to you might not be to someone else. Fre-ba***** to you – like Joey Tribbiani – might be the only way to go. Just no lunges, please. Here’s a refresher on that episode of Friends.
For women, it’s a little different – and probably an article for another day. So keep your big girl panties on!
