This is not a baited question. I know some women like panties, but do men prefer women in panties—the alternative being no panties, of course? While I think panties or lingerie look nice and sexy, my preference would be to see her au natural, nude, naked. I guess given the option between a woman in a parka versus lingerie, sure, I’ll take the lingerie. Short of that: nothing, nada, zilch. Show me the goods.
Women seem to think guys want to be teased, but being teased is just a speedbump to being pleased. I understand there are some hygienic reasons to wear panties, but that doesn’t mean that is a guy’s preference. The same thing goes for bras. While they serve a purpose and they do help to present an attractive package, I can do with out them, too.
The fact is wearing a bra and panties is pretty much like wearing a bikini. I can see that at the beach. Of course there is something to be said for anticipation, as in anticipating the removal of the undergarments, but, again, I’d prefer to skip that step. Besides, given a choice of anticipating, 10 minutes of a woman in panties versus a nude woman? Please, no contest.
So why is the intimate apparel business so booming? Why do women flock to places like Victoria’s Secret or Fredericks or whereever? Obviously, in more public settings, some leather and PVC wear can be enticing while still legal, whereas being nude is not as generally accepted outside of ones home. In the end, I would argue most men would prefer nothing to anything else.
