Granted, idle speculation doesn’t get much more frivolous than this, but I was wondering about the phrase “going commando”.
Do real-life commandos ever really enter a theater of operations sans undies? Does it offer a health or tactical advantage in, say, swampy terrain? On the other hand, wouldn’t even a pair of swamp-muck-soaked underwear help keep leeches and whatnot away from the family jewels? :eek:
Could it be a matter of heightened alertness and, uh, sensitivity to one’s environment?
And am I the only (purely civvie) woman here who finds the very idea hilarious?
As always, thanks in advance for your responses!
