Do you hang your underwear outside for all to see?

June 27, 2008

So, do you?

I did when I briefly stayed at a HDB flat in Singapore. I stopped after a few pairs went mysteriously missing.

No those aren’t mine πŸ™‚ they’re from here. So I hear Asians are a modest people. Doesn’t it strike anyone as odd that they don’t think twice about hanging out their underthings for the whole world to appreciate? Just imagine, you go to your boss’s house to get an urgent signature and run straight into her bras and panties fluttering at the gate.

Since we’re on the topic can someone tell me why this is ok

but this is not?

    It’s all in the mind. While you’re musing about this, I was just musing about masquerades

    Well, with wearing a bikini, you are well aware that your pubic hair are all trimmed and will not peek out…AND for superman its all covered up!

    Mayb the one with skirt…. might have a danger should her pubic hair exposed to the public …without knowing!

    If you don’t hang your underwear outside, where do you hang it? Inside the house? Unless you have a dryer, there’s no other place to hang it to dry. Furthermore, drying in the sun is better.

    As for the bikini and the skirt, both are strictly not allowed here in Malaysia. Haha! But I think the one in bikini is going for a swim so it’s ok, but the one in skirt is watching a game or something? I think it’s not so decent and besides, that’s consider poor dressing sense. As for Superman, it’s totally OK since it’s just a comic book character. But if someone wears his underwear outside his pants, I’ll think he’s gone cuckoo : )

    Personally I don’t hang my undergarments anywhere for people to see. Heck, I don’t even allow anyone to wash it! So it stays indoors to dry.

    As for the photos, I don’t see anything wrong with any of the three. The third picture I think is for the guys to drool or amuse with and the girls to scorn at. It’s purely people’s perception of it, how conservative the individual is. Personally I don’t give a sh*t. =)

    Basically, it’s all about perception. Borneo’s Iban ladies used to go about their daily chores bare-chested until some missionaries told them they’re half-naked and have to cover up. Ask a PNG native out on a hunt whether he feels naked wearing just a sheath for his precious manhood. Whatever, just dress for the occasion and location and you won’t go wrong. As for the norms of showing your underwear, it doesn’t matter as long as you’re not attached to them then, unless you’re on the runway and they’re from Triumph, Alain Delon or something like that.

    Since we won’t catch a sumo wrestler wearing his fundoshi at a gala dinner, maybe there’s point in dressing for the occasion. We’ve somehow got dress codes burnt in all our heads without realizing it.

    On airing one’s intimate laundry, its normal for people to hang them behind their homes. What I don’t understand is the habit of hanging them right in front of the house which is so common here.

    I have reason to believe some would purposely hang them out in the front yard for security reasons. Some branded ones are blurdy expensive. I often hear of women losing their undies to thieves, not just to those with kinky fetishes.

    Or it’s brand pride?

    Yeah I can’t understand why people would spend $40 on a pair of something that nobody will ever see but you may be right. Oh how brand pride leads to wierd habits and thinner pockets. πŸ™‚
