Panties or Knickers?

Recommended Posts

I live in England, and normally I don't use either, and say underwear or pants. if i'm referring to female's underwear specifically, i'd use "knickers"

I think panties is much cuter of a word. I hadn't heard the word "knickers" growing up so it just sounds a bit strange to me.

Growing up in England knickers was the commonly used word for girls underwear, so when 'accidents' happened to girls in early school years it was referred to as 'wetting their knickers'.  Boys underwear was referred to as pants, so their  'accidents' were referred to as 'wetting their pants'.  This can cause confusion on an international forum such as this.  My preference is knickers, but panties will also do just fine.

If that because girls would generally wear skirts or dresses because of a school dress code, therefore they wouldn't have any "pants" to wet?

No ... it's not. Because in England "pants" are underwear. "Wetting her knickers" and "wetting his pants" are both references to the wetting of the underwear, with no mention made of the near-inevitable concomitant wetting of the outer garments, whether they be skirt, dress or trousers.

I've always just thought the words panties was cuter, Knickers reminds me of older literature and drags me out. Not to mention British accents are a turn off for me, so it's like an ultimate two hit combo.

For me, being from the UK, my favourites are pants (in the sense of underwear) or knickers- and possibly undies.

 

Although I find accidents a huge turn-on, I don’t enjoy reading or hearing over-sexualised accounts of them, and to me, the word panties is a bit “porny”. It’s so much cuter when the accident “victim” doesn’t deliberately eroticise her experience.

 

Silly I know, but there you go…

Being older and British I can remember when the term "panties" got to be in common usage.  My wife hated the blue school knickers her generation were usually forced to wear, and I grew up associating knickers with the substantial long legged undergarments my mother and female relatives wore.  Because of this my wife tended to use the "panty" word because it reminded her of the liberation from heavy cotton knickers to the thin skimpy panties you began to see in underwear adds or displays in department stores.  There was nothing less sexy (to most people) than thick old fashioned knickers and (it has to be said) panties were OK to pee through in an emergency and could be rinsed out and dried  overnight.

I've lived in both the US and England, and I much prefer "panties" and "underwear". "Knickers" just reminds me of all the really early WHP videos where practically all their models were British and used it - not necessarily a bad thing, but can sometimes ruin the moment if I'm focusing on something completely unrelated :tongue:

The word "knickers" (long and frilly underwear) is a turn off for me, because "knickers" are what I remember very old and/or fat women wearing.  When I was growing up, girls wore "panties" - much sexier. The expressions "She is wetting her panties"  "She is wetting her pants"  "She is wetting herself" are very arousing for me, but not the word "knickers".

It's all about what you grew up with, and what was first imprinted on your sexual fantasies !

"undies" ?  No way !

Side question: when you read the word panties, do you pronounce it "pan-nies" or "pan-ties"?
