Perhaps it is my age, but at 43 I'm not doing it anymore. I don't wear high heeled shoes. I don't wax my girly parts, I don't wear thongs. I have spanx, but have always removed them before the night is over. I can't wear them and eat too, it gets painful. Being pretty is important. I'll wear makeup, wax my eyebrows, wear bras, exercise, eat right, drink my water, shop for pretty dresses... but, being comfortable is more important to me. Besides, my husband is really tall, and I like being short next to him.

I switched to microfiber thongs years ago and love them... I hardly know they are there... I hated having a soggy sweaty clump of cotton in my crotch and couldn't stand having something else covering my butt cheeks, and plucking eyebrows... please you want pain try electrology there is pain for ya!

Thongs are essentially butt floss.

About the thong; I always ask myself why should I load a piece of underwear in a place where I have tried to remove all my life. I tried thongs, there are comfortable to me only when I have pantyhose on otherwise I squirm all day and embarrass myself trying to dislodge it in public. I do not have spanx, but I can imagine loading my tummy in some of their garments, it feels uncomfortable like wearing tight clothes. Anyways spamx are on my list I will try one of these days.

I think male or female, fashion and hygiene choices come down to the person. I've known women who will wear high heels all the time, no matter how painful they might be. Granted they slave to find comfy shoes, but they love the look so much they'll deal with any discomfort. I think with thongs it's also a question of who you ask. Some find them horrible to wear, others feel all sexy and confident. It sounds like things aren't the thing for you.

Now if we're branching this towards "what do men think?" I think most men aren't as insane as women want to believe. I see plenty of men lament on how their wives/girlfriends chopped their hair short , but never one complain if they find she's wearing normal comfy panties over a thong...of if she's completely bald "down there" or not.

I love my fiancée. She may not wear heels or thongs, but she always looks and carries herself like a lady. I think women shouldn't feel they have to torture themselves if "attracting men" is on their minds.

Butt floss. Yuck. Besides, if you're doing things right, the unders won't be on long enough for much examination anyway: A nice pair of bikinis, high-cut hipsters or boyshorts for the 30-secs they're seen is the way to go.

1. I know MANY women who are comfortable in heels. I am not one of them but I wear them. They make your legs look better and they also help tone them. 2. I used to brazilian wax and some waxers have a great pull and it does not hurt (most hurt though) and I felt awesome. The only problem is with in growns. So I laser. Laser is really painful but for me it's worth it to get rid of the in growns. 3. I don't think "thongs" are comfortable, but I live the V string. It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all. There is nothing more uncomfortable that wearing regular panties under jeans. Last, your pain tolerance might be different from others so don't presume everyone is lying.

I wear panties under jeans all the time. If you find it uncomfortable, you don't have good panties or your jeans are too tight.

Neither is correct.

fun fact, if you wear heels to long/often (over an extended time) the tendons in your calf can eventually shorten and wearing flat shoes can become very painful.

im not entirely sure how wearing panties under jeans would be painful. i know people who find it uncomfortable, but if its actually painful i suspect you may be doing something wrong.

Thongs aren't uncomfortable if you get the right ones. And waxing (be it eyebrows or elsewhere) really isn't that painful. And I don't say this to encourage anyone else, it is your business how you groom and what you wear, but because it is true for me.

I've had a few bikini waxers that have a great pull and it didn't hurt at all. My brows are still painful though. Also, I agree with the thong issue. I wear V strings not traditional thongs.

Really? I find tweezing my brows is more painful than waxing. I guess to each their own.

Ah.........! What a relief to hear it said out loud and publicly. Thongs are NOT comfortable.

So why do women subject themselves to torture because men like the way it looks? Please name just one such torture men subject themselves to in order to please women?

It hurts me just to see a woman wearing a thong! That's right.....it HURTS just LOOKING at a thong on a woman's body!!!

I think boy shorts are way hotter...and I've heard from the female side they are more comfy.

Agreed. They look great and I think it's more hygienic.

Gotta be....gotta be.
Nothing stuck up one's   a      )  )   - crack like a thong could be "comfortable"   -- and I mean NUTHIN'!!    Why women would go through this to please men beats me.  Men find women alluring with far less sacrifice on womens' part.....

"Please name just one such torture men subject themselves to in order to please women?"

Putting up with the constant whining, judging and mind games. I mean I don't put up with it, but then again I don't expect a woman to wear thongs or heels.

Woman don't give man enough credit and think they have to do all of these insane "beauty" procedures.

I think for the most part, confidence is sexy. Being able to be yourself is sexy. Many things can be sexy but most of it has nothing to do with what you do to yourself cosmetically. Just my two cents.
07:19 AM on 01/02/2013
