Some can’t even leave the house without putting one on.
However, panties are a relatively modern invention. In fact, the panties we know today was first invented in 1940 – just 80 years back.
But enough of the history lessons, let’s talk about why you as a Nigerian woman should take off your panties and go full commando asides when you’re about to perform your duties in the other room.
There’s a lot of misconceptions about going full commando, especially in a typical African setting. Some people believe it’s bad for your health, while others see it as a sign of promiscuity.
But, at the end of the day, stepping out without panties is really not much of a big deal as most people see it. This is because no one will know you’re not wearing any under your cloth unless you tell them.

Should you go full commando or wear panties? 7 Reasons why you should take it off
Helps prevent infection
If you’re in the habit of wearing tight panties, especially for long hours, it’s really not a good idea as it restricts airflow into the vagina which may cause moist and heat in the area. This may cause infections.
If you must wear panties, make sure you stay away from those made with synthetic fibers as they can trap heat and moisture, creating a breathing ground for bacteria that can cause yeast and other urinary tract infections.
Instead, go for a loose-fitting cotton pantie. Thongs are a NO-NO as the back string can help transport bacteria from the rectum into the vagina.
Although going full commando is not a guarantee that you will never have a yeast infection, it can certainly go a long way in reducing your chances of getting contacting one.
For the uninterrupted flow of chi
Chi can be described as the vital life force energy that helps keep your organs healthy and functioning at optimum capacity when allowed to flow freely.
Wearing panties might block the free flow of this chi into the womb, causing your sexual organs to stagnate. As a precaution, try going full commando sometimes to let your sexual energy flow.
Helps prevent cellulite
Have you noticed any uneven, lumpy skin on your buttocks, thighs or hips? These may be signs of cellulite. This occurs when there is a disruption in the flow of blood and lymph fluid in the affected area – put less grammatically, it’s when there is a buildup of fat underneath the skin.
It is more common in women because, during puberty, fat is typically distributed in their hips, thighs, and buttocks.
Although this is considered a harmless condition, if you’re particular about your body appearance, then you need to rethink your wardrobe choices.
Most panties come with elastic around the leg opening which reduces circulation to the buttocks and upper thighs – the same places where women have cellulite.
So, skipping your skivvies and possibly tight clothing can help boost circulation in these delicate areas and prevent cellulite.
No VPL and wedgies
VPLs and wedgies are some of the embarrassing things that come with panties. We’ve all at one point of the other witnessed this phenomenon: a lady in a tight, sometimes bright-coloured trousers or skirt who seems unaware that her panties are visible through her ass – in shape, colour, and outline – to the entire world.
There’s nothing more embarrassing than that dreaded visible panty line. But you don’t have to worry about it when you decide to go commando.
Plus, skipping panties sometimes will save you the stress of sneaking away from a social encounter to dig out a wedgie that has found its way deep inside your but.
PS: you aren’t entirely safe from camel toes though, so you may want to exercise caution.
You’ll feel sexier
As a lady, nothing beats the confidence that comes with you having full rights to your body and how you choose to adorn it.
It can be profoundly liberating when you make the conscious move to break the norm and standard of dressing that society has placed on women.
In fact, there’s nothing sexier and more risqué than secretly knowing you aren’t wearing anything under your dress when you talk to friends, coworkers, professors, and that guy you have a crush on.
Increased sexual energy and extra wetness
Taking off your panties helps increase blood flow to the genital area, which is necessary for maintaining a robust sexual appetite.
And increased sexual drive helps boost wetness when you’re turned on. Going commando regularly supports a healthy libido which boosts vaginal secretions and makes you super moist and wet.
And with an extra juicy vagina comes extra juicy sex! If this right here isn’t enough a reason to take off your panties, I don’t know what is.
Sometimes it’s just necessary
Well, it may not happen all the time, but if you’re fresh out of clean underwear and you’re too tired to do a wash, don’t even think about going to your dirty hamper to fetch a used pair, no matter how clean it may look or re-use the one you just pulled.
That’s an invitation for all kinds of infection. Just go commando instead. Now is the perfect time to start.
Should you go bare or wear panties?
If you still can’t summon the courage to head out the door without panties, then make it a ritual to go commando when you get home, to allow your yoni breathe.
Sleeping naked is highly recommended, and there are tons of health benefits doing so.
If you do want to go bare but feel a little too exposed, you can try wearing long skirts, or maxi dresses when stepping out. You can wear a white cotton slip beneath to help create and an extra barrier between you and the outside world.
Do you go full commando regularly? What was your first experience like? Or, you still have doubts about the whole going bare? We would love to hear your views.
