My Boyfriend Has Been Getting Racy Underwear


Published August 28, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.


Dear Reverend,

I recently noticed that my boyfriend has been getting some really racy underwear. Bikinis, thongs, some with mesh insets, penis pouches, straps... Use your imagination. He doesn't wear them in front of me; they just show up in the drawer. What the heck is going on?

Dear Panty Perplexed,

Are you worried he's wearing them for someone else? If so, not only do you think he's a cheat, but you must also think he's dumb as a box of rocks. Why would somebody leave their havin'-sex-with-somebody-else panties out where their partner could find them?

If he's an asshat and you think this really is the case, I'd say you should confront him about it. But if your relationship is solid and he's generally a nice guy, maybe he's simply trying to expand his undergarment horizons and he's shy about putting them on display for you. It's also possible he's leaving them where you can see them as a hint that he'd like to get a little wild. Perhaps he's had them all along and he's just now feeling comfortable enough to bring them out.

How 'bout you take the initiative to break the intimate apparel ice? Pull out a pair and ask him to put them on and give you a show. Better yet, surprise him by putting on a pair yourself.

Good luck and God bless,

The Reverend
