People Are Debating Whether Or Not Guys Should Change Their Underwear Every Day

people are debating whether or not guys should change their underwear every day

Reddit always finds a way to keep us amused, shocked, or disturbed. This time, a woman opened up about the fact that her husband doesn't mind spending a few days without changing his underwear.

Can you believe that?

The concerned woman explained what is going on in a Reddit post titled:

My husband says he doesn't need to change his underwear daily. What are the usual rules for male hygiene routines?


Clearly, the woman was concerned that the man was not observing basic hygiene rules. She went on to explain the situation, asking fellow Reddit users to advise her on what to do:

So I just figured out my husband doesn't change his underwear daily. Sometimes he goes a few days between changes. He says that it's "unrealistic" for people to change their undies every day. I'd be interested to know if there are things that I thought were basic hygiene rules that are not. Maybe I'm the idiot for going through a pair a day. I feel like women have set rules about brushing teeth and changing undies and stuff like that. Please tell me all!


Web users are concerned and sorry for her. Her post has already gathered over 3k comments and a 94 percent upvote rate.

Here are the top reactions from users.

1. Apparently, Bad Hygiene Has Never Been A Deal-Breaker

I like how people always tell single guys who are struggling with dating to just shower, but I always see stories on Reddit about girls dealing with boyfriends who don't wash, brush their teeth, or even wipe their asses. – bootyhunter69420


2. There Are Guys Who Don't Think Bad Hygiene Is A Problem

I dated someone like this. He refused to believe I hated BJs solely because he wouldn't wipe his ass properly and I could literally smell shit if I went down there. I can't believe I put up with that. – IamfromCanuckistan

3. Why Do It?

Why do they date these men? – vastle12


4. Their What?

The worst are those who don't wash their poop knife regularly. – GCFocused

5. How Did She Not Know Before Marrying Him?

I'm more impressed that OP married this guy without knowing this already – Furthur

6. There Is Nothing Surprising About This

I suffer from crippling depression and anxiety, like the type that makes it hard to see the point in even getting up or being alive but one thing I will NEVER do is not shower every day. If I'm being a useless human being I can at least have good hygiene. But what I've kind of learned is that a lot of people (not just men) have VERY VERY poor hygiene. – Katarrina3


7. A Word Of Advice

Rule #1: if you can smell own stench, others have been smelling it for some time already. – ObliviousAstroturfer

8. Shouldn't This Be An Obvious Red Flag?

It's very weird to see people that don't consider bad hygiene a red flag. – thebigkneegrow

9. Yea, This Isn't Right

I'll wear a pair of jeans for more than one day in a row, but not underwear or socks. That shit gets sweaty and covered in body oils. I don't think my wife would ever give me another blowjob if I was unclean like that. – DukeOfDouchebury


10. Doesn't He Feel Uncomfortable?

Even just from the perspective of comfort, it's mandatory to change every day. Granted I wear briefs, but by the time I change my underwear in the morning, the elastic is a little stretchier than when I put them on and the fabric just doesn't feel fresh anymore. I could see the fit not being as much of an issue if you wear boxers, but it's nice putting on a clean pair of underwear with snugly fitting elastic. – 830_L


11. It's Not That Strange

Fun fact: The CEO of Levi never puts his jeans through the washing machine, only occasionally spot cleaning it or handwashing it – PU55Y_3473R

12. Some People Are The Complete Opposite

I have like 40 boxers and 50 pairs of socks. I just buy a bunch on black Fridays and open a new pack when some get torn a bit. – Little_shit


13. Hygiene Isn't For Women Only

There are no usual rules for males only. He needs to change his undies daily. That's nasty – L9773

14. You Guys Still Wear Underwear?

Who wears underwear? – FLT8

15. He's Just Filthy

Sounds like your husband is a filthy bastard. I change out my underwear, socks, and shirts every day. The only thing I wear for a day or two in a row are my jeans unless they get really dirty. – scotiej


16. He Can Do It, But Only If He Gets Special Underwear

Long-distance hiker here. There are special microbial fabrics you can wear for three days even while hiking 60 miles. Things aren't great down there but crotch rot is avoided.

I pretty sincerely doubt he's got a pair of these. At $20 a pop they would have been mentioned. – Mackntish


17. Should Change Every Time He Showers

Personally I shower one day, don't shower on the next day (unless I have to for a circumstance of that day), and then shower on the day next to that. Every time I have a shower I change my underwear, my t-shirt and my socks, my pants can last a week without having to touch the washing machine – sans_namikaze


18. The Harmful Effects Of Bathing

Careful, bathing is harmful, as it disrupts the natural oils of the body. – NightmareMindset

19. No Words!

If you have two pairs of underwear you can just put one out in the sun for the month to disinfect it and not even have to waste water washing it! – LYossarian13


20. Some Guys Change Because Their Wives Insist They Do

Depends on the type of underwear I'm wearing that day. If it's boxers, I might only change once in 2 days, if it's briefs or panties, my wife would force me to change – HungryZombieMeat
