Panty Raids

I was just reading someone's journal, and after watching Animal House, he was wondering "why don't women wear underwear like that anymore?"  It's been a while since I've seen that movie, but I knew quite well what he was referring to.  And I am proud to say that this woman still does wear underwear like that.  Sorry my fellow females, but wearing thongs is not my thing...at all.  I know lots of you prefer them, and you can have 'em, thank you very much.  After all, who wants to go around wearing a wedgie all the time, especially since I've spent too many years avoiding them.  Yes, I tried a thong...once.  Went to Victoria's Secret, found a couple of pretty ones and brought them home.  Why not, I thought, I'll try almost anything, once.  And once was all it took.  That was enough, I didn't even make it out of the house, before I pulled everything off to put on a pair of real underwear.  Whew!  Never again!

I know I'm not the only one who refuses to be a slave to fashion.  Ashley Judd refuses to wear them, and on several occasions I have seen her speak out about the long term effects of wearing them.  And it isn't pretty.

Yup, give me boring cotton (dare I say practically granny) underwear anyday.  Oh, I went wild a few weeks ago - bought prints instead of plain white in my favorite Fruit of the Looms..... Perhaps another of the many reasons I am still single?

Oh, I have to admit, I do have some thong panties...but typically, they are 'special occassion' panties; so I don't have to wear them very long!

Whoa!  Woke up this morning to find 4 comments posted to the panty raid entry.  Maybe I should be mischievous more often!  ;)  Looks like it's even steven right now:  Thongs 2, Other 2.  So Robin, it's up to you...what's it gonna be?

Okay, okay....I'll fess up. Mostly I am a boy brief  undies wearer...you know the real cute ones that look like daisy dukes only real lacy? But...I do have thongs that I wear when I feel naughty...however, if I am feeling naugty I usually pass on the butt flosers and just go COMMANDO!!!!! Yep! That's right....I frequently go bare back in the capri's!  Shhhh....don't tell my Mom!  ~Robin

Diane...woman with a plan (hey, that rhymes...maybe I'll write a poem about panties)

Robin...COMMANDO!  Atten-hut!  (That is my favorite 'Friends' episode...you know the one)

Brvheart...liberation is a great feeling! (Hmm, are the thongs of today the equivalent of the bra burnings 30 years ago...)

Keep it coming ladies, cuz this is getting interesting.

Cammando for me. Every chance I get.  My six year old refused to wear underwear when she was two.  She would pull the crotch all the way down to her knees and then walk around keeping her knees together to keep the panties doen. It was a Riot.

Melissa - LOL!  I can relate.  My younger sister Jayme had a similar tendency.  Fortunately, she grew out of it.

Bo - Butt flosers!?!  Now why didn't I think of that.

Yep, give me comfortable cotton any day.

Hey there, came across your journal via Robin's.

I'm without a doubt a thong fan. ;) I just can't stand having my butt covered up now that I've gotten into wearing the thongs. I think Sisqo made them quite popular a few years back with his song, and after you get used to them - they are actually pretty comfortable.

Found you through Robin's and have to agree with you..forgot those horrible thongs. I try them every once in awhile when I think "oh I can be "withit"..forget it..I just can't take it.

Thanks for the laugh! :)

SCORE BOARD
Thongs 2.83   Briefs/Bikinis/Other 3.83   COMMANDO! 1.34

(Apparently some people can't decide, hence the need for the decimals.  Last time I just rounded up and counted a certain someone in all three categories.  But, we wouldn't want to skew the numbers now, would we?)

delela1 said...

SCORE BOARD (Amended)

Thongs 2.83   Briefs/Bikinis/Other 4.83  COMMANDO! 1.34

I just realized...what's missing here?   Hmmm, oh yeah, ME!

delela1 said...

pixie - LOL!  I must confess the last time I bought "grannie" undies was as a gag gift for a hen party.  Wonder what they do with them after the party...

derasta - Yep, it's all about comfort in the nether regions :)

Danielle - Butt-cover?  Hmmm...

my3gifts -  Glad you agree.  With-it...or NOT!

Oh, and Bo, thanks to you, I may never be able to floss my teeth again!

Thanks for stopping by ladies.  :)
