Lingerie...What's the point?

I had a couple friends in my late teens who swore by thongs in terms of comfort.

As long as they don’t have scratchy lace, for my body type at least this is 100% my opinion as well.

Seems like less prep than writing a categorised list of things you're willing to do...

You only have to do that once per partner, though...

How so? It’s just generally underwear? 

A lot of times it’s less comfortable, less stretchy, and more complex than everyday underwear.

Other clothes you might choose as part of being in a relationship aren't what you'd choose to bum around in all day at home by yourself either. Most people get a little dressed up for dates, or for parties, or may choose one bit of clothing over another because they know their partner likes to see them in it, and it's pleasurable to feel desired. Underwear is just a subsection of that.

I never got that either. I understand that it's a thing, but I guess I don't have that 'need' to be desired. If anything, such attention would make me uncomfortable. If its a special occasion I might dress up a little but only because everyone else is and I don't want to stand out, not because I care about people's reactions.

I get it in theory, and yet I find something unsettling, in a sensory way, about the feeling of being nearly naked underneath whatever else I'm wearing. Although I'm exactly the reverse with my top half. Rarely wear a bra because I dislike the feel of them (and, thankfully, can get away with it).

 

Good lord, the information we share on AVEN cracks me up sometimes. Although I presume no one is getting particularly titillated over the thought of my value pack white cotton undies, so. 😂

I was thinking specifically of one's partner's reactions, not people in general, and it makes sense that while most sexuals enjoy being desired by their partners, asexuals are either oblivious or averse to it. Most people would also conflate being seen as aesthetically attractive with sexually attractive, to a large extent, so going out looking good in general would include looking sexually attractive, just possibly in a slightly lower key way than, say, a low cut top / short tight skirt / stockings combo at a cheap bar.

Lmao. Dunno if she'll see your tag or not, I believe she's taking a bit of a rest from AVENing at the moment.

 

But ok, fair point. :P

Swear to god I've been buying the same brand of value pack knickers for over a decade. That's how us blue-collar-town Ontarians do it. Fuckers used to be only $5 for a pack of six circa 2007.

Oh but full disclosure, a bunch of them are pink now. I accidentally washed them in hot water instead of cool, along with a bright red sweatshirt. I'm vaguely mortified.

Google tells me that's $5.22 CAD, so yeah, I'm suitably jealous.

The only thing that’s more naked is my butt cheeks, and it beats the feeling of underwear riding up them all the time.

Oddly specific question for any Brits reading this: does Boots still sell a huge variety of sandwiches? Like a fucking... wall of sandwiches? That's how it is in my memory, lol. And if so, do they still have chicken tikka ones?

Can't give you specifics, but yes. Shit tonnes of overpriced sarnies they try to pretend aren't extortionate because they're in the meal 'deal'.

Good to know some things haven't changed. Your walls of sandwiches blew my mind. I remember sneaking one of the aforementioned chicken tikka ones into a cinema in Cambridge in '01 to see Shrek with a friend. Actually I mostly lived off tins of Heinz beans and Crunchie bars for a few weeks that summer. Oh and McDonald's banana milkshakes. Very healthy, haha. I was happy enough though. Fuck... seems like a lifetime ago.

 

Erm, sorry. Supposed to be talking about frilly knickers here. (Alas, I know very little.)

They exist in Canada too (not the States, I don't think), but your chocolate is better than ours. Higher quality.

Agreed!  Thank God I can go down the street and buy Teuscher at will.  While American chocolate is horrid, the abundance of alternatives makes it ok.  Seriously, American Chocolate and American beer, how do they stay in business? It’s beyond me!

Yeah, mainstream American chocolate is crap. In my opinion Canadian is slightly better, however I have a long-standing debate with an American I'm close to over this matter. He maintains that whilst British chocolate is obviously better than either American or Canadian (it just undeniably is, like by law it has a higher percentage of cocoa solids or whatever), American is better than Canadian. I vehemently disagree.

 

And this is the real reason our marriage didn't go as planned. Nothing to do with me being into chicks and him being ace. :lol:

I believe the term you're looking for is Oompa Loompa in Chief? What with the orange and all.
