There are many things women don’t know about men’s underwear habits. Firstly because it’s a personal topic so people don’t really talk about it and secondly because many women just assume men aren’t too different from themselves - they are dead wrong.
Did you know that more than 8 in 10 men reuse their dirty underwear from time to time? Either because they don’t have spares or because they think it’s “still okay”. Some women do it too of course, but only a tiny handful at about 5 per cent (or 1 in 20).
It’s clear that most women care a lot about below the belt hygiene and if you guys don’t want to score a big fat zero on her pop quiz, you should know the right answers to these questions. (Also, just for fun we took these questions on the road to get some candid answers.)
I have one set of underwear with the days of the week printed on each of them. Unfortunately I lost Friday and Sunday so sometimes it’s Monday three days a week.
Assuming you do your laundry once a week, every guy should have at least 14 pairs of underwear, one for each day plus backups for exercise or travel. In the real world however, guys don’t always have the luxury or inclination to do their weekly laundry, so aim to have around 20 pairs for a comfortable buffer.
To be fair, there is no real wrong answer to this one and you should wear whatever fabric you like. However, silk and some synthetic fabrics are not as breathable as other materials and can trap moisture leading to discomfort or infection - which isn’t sexy or funny at all.
If you answered all these questions correctly, you are a man amongst men, the 1 in 5 that a lady would be proud to introduce to her friends and family.
If you bombed the test, don’t worry. It’s never too late for you to become underwear savvy and start getting top scores on below the belt hygiene.
