Many people remember their mothers telling them to always wear clean underwear in case they get in an accident and the paramedics need to look at them. Not only is this bad advice, but there are so many better reasons to wear clean underwear.

Underwear can also protect your genitalia from irritating clothing, like seams in your pants that run right between your legs.
