According to a disturbing survey, it is said that almost 50 percent of people don’t change their underwear every day.
A strange but eye-opening study has revealed that 45% of adults do not change their briefs, panties, boxers or other forms of underwear after each wear. According to the research carried out by American underwear company, Tommy John, this is actually something that is common to men and women alike!
Although men are [unsurprisingly] worse offenders than women, being 2.5 times more likely to wear their pants for a week on end, the result of the study still does not look so good on women who actually didn’t fare much better than men in the results.
A representative for Tommy John tells Mail Online: “These results were split fairly evenly between men and women, which throws any theories out the window that women are more hygiene-conscious than men, or vice versa.”
What’s perhaps the most shocking thing to be gleaned off this study is that 13% of the 1000 respondents actually admitted that they’d sported the same undies for seven days or more!
The study of course focused on a completely-American audience and whether these stats would be significantly change or remain the same when applied to a Nigerian context is quite vague but of course, no one would particularly be shocked shocked if it actually turned out that these represents a close-enough depiction of how Nigerians use and manage [pun intended] their underwear.
