“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Okay, this is interesting as heck. Might be the most under-reported medical story of the decade.

A very good friend of mine recently got back from her OB-GYN, where she had to be treated for her fifth urinary tract infection in a year.

Finally, her doc got smart and asked her: Do you wear thong underwear?

The answer was yes, and the doctor said, "Aha!"

Apparently thong underwear have created a surge in UTI's! Throughout the course of the day, that stringy bottom goes back and forth down there, like a tug-of-war match, carrying fecal matter and germs directly to ... uh ... to its neighbor. (Trying to be delicate about this.)

Anyway, my friend's doc's advice: Wear thongs when you're "going out" (I think she meant "hooking up"), but when you're on your own be sure to wear normal panties.

I know this is strange coming from me, a guy, but I know a lot of my readers are women, and I thought this was really good advice.

Things that make you go 'hmmm...' I actually had a patient in mind as I was reading your very pertinent informative topic. Thanks!!

Hi Ad, I am a Medical Assistant at a Doctor's office. This information is very true. UTI's are caused by fecal matter getting pushed into the Urethra. I have always known.. the best thongs to wear are still flip flops!! :-)
Have a great day!!!!

Oh I know of a great solution to this problem. And it's a simple fix. Just put on your thong backward. With the stringy thing (as Ad calls it)in front, instead of the back, you're practically assured of a thrilling good time all day long!
You come up with some crazy-ass (pun intended, get it?) things, AD!
Crazy but fun,

So men can still wear thongs without any danger - correct?
