August 5 is National Underwear Day, which was created in 2003 when Freshpair, a New York-based company that sells undergarments, decided underwear needed a day to be honored. You shouldn’t let the week pass without wearing your underwear with pride and celebrating all they have done for you. Even though it’s frowned upon to walk around the block without clothes on, there’s nothing wrong with walking around your house half-naked. Even if you live with a roommate, your underwear will cover you up just as much as a bathing suit would, so let those whitey tighties fly. If you plan on celebrating this lesser known holiday, here are a few ways you can do so.

Buy Underwear With Your Partner

Even though women own an average of 21 pairs of underwear, you could always use more. Head to the mall to buy some new ones. You can buy bras, panties, boxers, and even lingerie for you or for your partner. In fact, bring your partner with you so you can try on clothes in the changing room together. If you’re feeling extra frisky, you can even try making love behind the dressing room door. We don’t recommend this…it’s illegal you know.

Take Pictures In Your Underwear

If you’re in a serious relationship with someone you trust, you can take pictures of yourself in your underwear to send to them. They don’t even have to be sexy pictures, because studies show people who allow their partners to see them in cotton underwear are more carefree and low-maintenance. If you’re single, then you can take pictures to keep for yourself. If you’re planning on losing weight, you can look back at the pictures in the future to see how much progress you made. If you’re happy with yourself just the way you are, then you can look at your sexy underwear pictures whenever you’re feeling down to get a boost of confidence.

Throw Away (Or Donate) Your Old Clothes

King Tut was buried with 145 pairs of underwear, just in case he needed them in the afterlife. Since you probably won’t be following his lead, another great way to celebrate the holiday is by going through all of your clothes. If you have underwear with holes in them, it’s time to throw them away. If you have other items of clothing you don’t wear anymore, but are in good condition, you can donate them to someone who will appreciate them.

Admire Others In Their Underwear

There’s no better way to celebrate than by masturbating. If you want to engage in some self pleasure, you can look up photographs of your favorite stars in their underwear. It’ll give you something sexy to look at while you go to town on yourself. Of course, if you have any pictures of your partner in their underwear, that’ll work just as well. Just focus on fantasizing instead of thinking about practical things, like how long they’ve owned that pair of underwear, because most people wear the same pair for up to 10 years.

Exercise To Look Good In Your Underwear

If you’re not happy with the way you look in your underwear, it’s time to make a change. Hop on an exercise bike, walk around the block, or do a few push-ups in order to get the body you’ve always dreamed about. If you’re worried about coming home smelly, you can wear flatulence proof underwear. If it keeps the smell of flatulence away, then it’s bound to keep away the scent of your crotch sweat.

 Go Commando

Why not give your underwear the day off. Wash them, hang them out on the line, and let them enjoy the day as if they were lounging on a sunny beach. We all need a vacation, even your underwear. Besides, there’s nothing better then the smell of line dried laundry.
