Ah Smegma.....haven't heard that term in a while

First heard about Smegma listening to sex radio phone in show "Sex Talk with Sue".
There's even a novelty song about it....the chorus goes "Smegma, smegma, don't forget to wash",
or something like that, anyway pretty funny tune.

As for going commando Jambo.....

I read that the late great Jim Morrison never wore underwear, so you're in good company.

Sometimes you just click on the 'active threads' box and wonder why you did.

Outside of the abrasional fabric of pant seams, zippers, stitching, folds, fabrics of varying types that may not be as comfortable against a mans most sensitive skin, and the ability to keep the testicles and penis in a reasonably comfortable position, this thread has me scratching my head....





Beware the 'shart' infested pants as Mircea aptly mentioned. And let thy boys sway and slap just don't hurt yourself by sitting awkwardly.

I can't imagine not wearing fresh boxers every day after I've showered, just the words "going commando" make me feel vaguely uncomfortable
The post I'm quoting made me smile, I imagine any British man or woman would smile at it too, but not in a bad way.
Just another example of the fact that we are two countries divided by a common language.
Over here, the outerwear that covers male legs is/are called trousers, or maybe jeans, or chinos, female leg attire is probably just called trousers too, or jeans, maybe leggings/jeggings.
To us, underwear, particularly male underwear is/are called pants, occasionally female underwear too.
I'm no expert, but I think that the word knickers is the common word for female underwear over here, but they may be humorously referred to as drawers.
The word panties is almost never uttered by any British person, we only hear it on U.S. TV shows or in U.S. movies.
Nothing wrong in the word, it's just not used over here.
Just thought of another couple of differences, what you guys call trouser or pant cuffs, we call turn ups, and our waist coat is your vest.
We could go on all day!

"Great! Good to hear. Same here. Secreting nicely."

I have grossed myself out with this imaginary conversation. Why am I so good at being gross?

Nicci - you never fail to have me laughing out loud first thing in the morning. I assume testicles are like boobs - if they are not supported then gravity will have them get lower & lower. ...

When I was younger the word panties bothered me - why I don't know. But I outgrew it.

I'm an adult woman and I don't like the work panties. It just sounds weird. It's underwear or undies for me.

They may look clean but do they smell like they did when you first put them on?

This thread is hysterical - it's right up there with the blinker fluid thread.

If you have to ask this sort of question, then <fill in the blank>.

My MUM, ever the practical woman used to say....


Wear clean underwear, you never know when you might end up in the morgue. I was 12.
