Tumbling Again

I keep telling you
(why do I care about this?)
if you are going
to do gymnastics
you can't do that commando
style when they're around.

Note for ESL people, English as a second language... "commando style" means without underwear and is a military reference to infiltrating behind enemy lines which is what commandos do.

Here is Wikipedia:

Going commando, or free-balling for males and free-buffing for females, is the practice of not wearing underwear.

Some people choose not to wear any underwear for several reasons, including for comfort, to enable their outer garments (particularly those which are form-fitting) to look more flattering, to avoid creating a panty line, or because they do not see any need for them. Some people find not wearing underwear to be sexually exciting, and some people regard knowing that their sex partner is not wearing underwear to be erotic. Not wearing underwear is widely considered to be immodest and socially unacceptable if the crotch area becomes exposed, but can be a part of some sex fantasies and of some pornographic films.

Certain types of clothes, such as cycling shorts and kilts, are designed to be worn or are traditionally worn without underwear. This also applies for most clothes worn as swimwear, sportswear or nightwear.

In Chile, the act of not wearing underwear has been called "andar a lo gringo" (to go gringo-style) for decades.


  1. I have not heard that Christopher ...interesting point !

    1. Readers: Sandra is from Chile, it appears, and she may be considerring "andar a lo gringo"

  2. The question to me is not if you have heard of it, but off course; have you done it? What is your personal experience with all this?

  3. It can be quite comfy in hot tropical weather

    1. Indoor wear. I do this all the time as I lurk by myself in my basement. I have a garment called a lungi or sarong that wraps tight and holds like a skirt. I wear nothing under that. I hesitate to go up to dinner on the first floor without dressing - though sometimes I do just because I can't be bothered. I risk embarassment.

  4. Quite entertaining; thanx for sharing.

  5. I can see the up side to those!


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
