    Yeah I know this is a really random question, but does anyone here ever go commando in their scrubs?

    Here's the situation... I go to the gym before heading to the hospital/campus and usually take my scrubs or clothes I'm planning on wearing with me and change after my workout. A couple of weeks ago, I had a little extra time after my workout and decided I would take a swim. I forgot that I didn't have an extra pair of boxers with me since I wasn't planning on swimming and wasn't planning on even getting that sweaty or needing a shower. I just wasn't thinking and jumped in the pool in my shorts. I got out of the pool, went to shower and realized what I'd done and thought OH CRAP.

    No time to go home, as I had to be at the hospital like 20 minutes later so I went commando in the scrubs. No other choice. I thought I was going to feel self conscious all day, and I did for about the first 30 minutes feeling really exposed (kinda like those dreams where you're in walmart and realize you're in your underwear but worse)... But then we were so busy for the next couple of hours that I stopped thinking about it. Long story short, by the time I got home like 18 hours later, I started thinking this wasn't so bad and actually kinda liked it. So, I confess. I've been going commando in my scrubs since then. Anyone else out there?

    Maybe negated by the fact he's a resident and is anuric? Probably not :p. That's the thread I thought of immediately when reading this, though.

    If you're using personal scrubs, like I was given in medical school = acceptable. I mean, it's not my thing, but whatever floats your boat.

    If you're using hospital scrubs, like I've been doing since medical school = unacceptable. No way you should let that those things touch your junk, unless you're taking low-dose prophylactic doxy.

    I had to do that once for the same reason. Went to the gym before work, brought clean everything except boxers, and I stepped on the ones I wore to the gym to dry my feet when I got out of the shower. I thought wasn't gonna be a big deal... but it was clearly obvious I was freeballing. So I took tape into the bathroom when I got to my floor and taped the inside of my scrubs so that any outline wouldn't be seen.

    I guess depending on your endowment it isn't a big deal, but if you're the average guy or happened to be blessed, chances are the nursing floor you were on is still talking about your penchant for penile freedom.

    Oh and... strong first post.

    I like not being in pain, so no. It was thick tape so I taped it to the inside of the scrubs. Still free balling, but now you're rubbing up against something that will keep its shape... instead of conforming to yours.

    I hope you own these scrubs and they aren't the ones that are shared within the hospital.

    One good reason not to do that is that I've seen accidental depantsing happen twice and have heard of other mishaps. It'd be a real bummer to have that drawstring come loose. Aside from the sharing hospital scrubs thing, they are also pretty thin. I mean, if you are a dude, slinging serious pipe and like everyone to know you're slinging pipe, then have at it....or if you're the opposite.

    unless your sporting M&M sized nuts after a few hours the lack of support will make your sack swell and back ache.

    I go commando in my personal scrubs I wear around the house, but I'd never freeball in the hospital.

    It was pretty well known where I trained what individuals were going commando....for obvious reasons.

    A better question is, are you ok going commando in pants that OTHERS have gone commando in, spilled body fluids of all types on (both from patients and from the scrub wearer), etc.? Scrubs get cleaned, but....when you think about where they've been....:smuggrin:

    Thanks for the replies... and I have another account, but I didn't really want this question linked with my name. :)

    What's to love? It's hella comfortable. Less laundry. And if I'm completely honest, something about it made me feel a little bit more confident. Or maybe its boldness rather than confidence. Maybe it's a feeling of being more wild. Maybe after all the hours of being stuck in a library carrell like a caged dog the last couple of years, this is my inner wild animal showing some signs of life. This part is mostly me kidding, so don't get all upset. :D

    The scrubs are my personal scrubs, so no concern about someone else's junk touching them. Though really, does a thin layer of boxers really count as much of a barrier when it comes to germs, body fluids, etc? Similarly, being worried about a boner showing more while going commando than while wearing boxers is kind of ridiculous. Boxers don't exactly keep that from showing. Besides, we have the anatomy, its part of what makes us men, so why are we so intent on trying to hide it or cover it up or act like it doesn't exist or like you're ashamed of your package? I'm starting to think boxers are just a mental safety net for most guys who wear them, as they don't really absorb much (see the post someone referred to about pee spots) and don't really hide much either.

    I did find out there are at least two in my class who do this on a regular basis and aren't very bashful about it. And after thinking back, there have been a number of patients who weren't wearing underwear. Granted, they weren't wearing scrubs. Sounds like I'm alone in this forum, though.

    For my money, yes. Condoms are thin, too, but they work pretty well. And we're asking a lot less of boxers.

    And I call BS on the idea that lack of support will bother anyone. Commando in scrubs offers no less support than boxers in scrubs. If your boys are so big that they require ball huggers just to be comfortable, then I think you need to be tested for Fragile X Syndrome.

    See comment above about boxers.

    Either boxers are not nearly as common as I think, or M&M-sized testicles are endemic.

    I dont get why scrotal skin is considered "dirtier" than any other skin. Unless if people are spillling semen into the scub pants, i would be far more concerned about MRSA from a "spiderbite" from someone's lower leg left in some impropery cleaned scrubs than the relatively clean genital skin.
    Yet somehow, folks are more creeped out by the prospect of touching the latter.

    What, do you wear a Jock and a cup to contain your bat and baseballs? You must have testicles so large they smash into each other throughout the day, causing bruising edema... no normal guy does that.

    This topic was too funny not to comment on, mostly due to people getting all uptight about it. Go commando if you feel like it.
