At this point in our lives, we all know that there’s a lot to be said for open and honest communication.

Whether you’re dealing with an interpersonal conflict or a complex health problem, it usually doesn’t help anyone to tiptoe around the issue.

There’s a time and a place for delicacy, but hey, we’re all grown-ups here! We can handle talking about stuff that makes kids cringe or go squeamish; we weren’t born yesterday and we’ve seen a few things.

That’s why we don’t break a sweat when it comes to talking about life’s earthier details, like the health benefits of letting one rip, or why we have every right to ditch the bra if we darn well please.

There’s a time and a place for delicacy, but we also know when it’s time to stop playing coy and call it like we see it.

That’s why we’re here today to have a frank conversation about a topic lots of people would rather avoid: dropping the drawers and going commando.

Scroll through the gallery below to learn what you can gain from skipping the undies every now and then.

You have heard this bit of advice from Mom, but it’s no old wives’ tale: Wearing tight undies all the time really can up your risk of infections, because it traps all sorts of bacteria right against your skin.

According to Everyday Health, never letting your downstairs “breathe” can be a recipe for yeast infections and UTIs.

Keep in mind, skipping the undies but still wearing tights or leggings isn’t any better; you’ll reap the most benefits if you pair any panties-free days with loose bottoms.

Remember all that stuff we said about keeping clean? Well, it also applies to your personal scent.

Too-tight underwear can start to smell over the course of the day, and infections in private areas are notorious for leading to a not-so-fresh feeling.

Going without undies lets air circulate and ensures that unpleasant odors will never have an opportunity to form.
