Nope!

I've actually heard that it can be healthier. It allows more airflow and doesn't trap moisture against your genitals, so you're less prone to yeast infections/BV.

There's really little more to say about this: there's nothing unhealthy about it.

The only real issue is merely practical: if you're someone who likes to wear pants more than one time, that may not be so doable if you go without underpants since your discharges will then wind up on your pants.

It's also not the best idea if you are wearing loose fitting trousers and don't tend to remember belts, or are currently losing weight. When I was a few years younger, I lost a few pounds and my trousers fell right down on the bus (gladly I was wearing underwear at the time). The other thing would be that if you use sanitary towels they may move about more and be less protecting on loose fitting pants on heavy period days.

Always knock before entering my room when I am in there alone, as I may be doing all sorts of wonderfully thrilling things that I'd rather you didn't see.

The other thing would be that going commando and wearing a mini-skirt do not mix (I'm not saying that nudity is immoral, in fact I'm somewhat nudist inclined myself, I'm just saying that laws about public indecency are not on your side, and also that having seen the kind of crud that's on buses, school furniture, floors and other sit-on-able surfaces that aren't in an environment where you have control, the idea of putting my genitals anywhere near them without a protective layer is terrifying).

Going Comando is fun, but I wouldn't do it if I was in public -- too much risk of embarrassment.
Speaking of like, air flow to the genitals. Instead of going commando I have nicked (clean) pairs of my bfs boxers when around his house. PLease don't think I'm odd, they're just rel comfortable. But he laughs at me cause I'm so short, they are like shorts on me. [Razz]
Going Commando + MINISKIRT? Whoah Nelly. I'd never be able to do that. I can't even wear overly skimpy underwear with skirts. I'm for safety, and miniskirts mean granny panties for me. [Smile] Ihave too many annoying/odd friends who find it amusing to kick up your skirt from behind *cringe*

Bragorien, I wear boy marketed boxers too, have done since childhood because girl marketed pants chafe and because when I was that age I could wear frilly pink "girls" pants or "boys" boxers which had pictures of Bart Simpson on. I've never actually gone commando wearing a miniskirt BTW, I'm just advising against it for the above reasons.

Ohh I didn't think you had! [Big Grin] I was just seconding the "Oh my, no!" .. thing. [Big Grin]
And yay! I am so going to pleads for boxers. Why is it so much easier to laze about in guy underwear? In girls underwear you feel underdressed, but not in boxers [Big Grin] So woop, I wil no be revising proudly boxer-ed. [Razz]

But not comando... [Big Grin]
