Why Do Some People Prefer to Go without Underwear?

It is a common misconception that only nudists and exhibitionists prefer to go without underpants. There are many underwear-free people who choose this lifestyle for a variety of reasons, such as better air circulation and the avoidance of fabric seams in sensitive areas. This brief will explore why some people prefer to go without underwear!

Reasons eople Prefer to Go without Underwear


One of the most common reasons people go underwear-free is to avoid odors and rashes that can develop when bacteria accumulates in the groin area. This can be caused by excessive sweating or fear of developing a yeast infection.

Underwear tends to trap sweat and moisture, leading to skin irritation and bad smells. While some people may think going underwear-free leads to an increase in odor, studies have found it actually decreases body odor because the genitals get airflow and are not trapped against each other.

Since underwear traps warmth against your skin , you might be more comfortable without it!


Many people claim that going without underwear is more comfortable. Their reasons may differ; for some, the lack of constant tightness around the waist and legs might be preferable.

Eliminating underpants can also reduce or eliminate chafing and sweating in areas like the inner thighs and groin area, making it a much more comfortable experience.

For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, underwear can cause discomfort by restricting circulation to certain parts of their body such as the testicles.

Often times, boxer briefs will get snagged on pubic hair or genitalia when pulled up into place which can cause irritation and pain throughout the day. The ability to let genitals “breathe” makes many men feel less encumbered and more relaxed.

Freedom of Movement

People who choose not to wear underpants often say they just feel more free without them on! This is especially true for people who are active or have physically demanding jobs.

The lack of underwear allows for more comfortable movement, especially in the crotch area. It is often said that without underpants, you can really feel the wind against your skin when you go outside! This would be especially true during warm months.

Men’s boxer briefs can be restricting and uncomfortable at times, especially when sitting down for a long period of time. The extra fabric can cause wrinkled discomfort around the genital area which some people may prefer to avoid.

For some people who have had back surgery, they can feel more comfortable after their wound has healed without underpants on. This helps keep clothing or bed sheets from rubbing against the incision or wounds. This allows the skin to continue to heal, while still allowing for sanitary reasons (less chance of infection).
