Thong Diary: Hanky Panky Saving Me from My OCD

I know we all have quirks and odd behaviors from time to time, some more than others. For me, I happen to have an issue with the way fabric seams feel and also when they shift out of place. It could be anything from the seams on my clothes feeling uncomfortable (I sleep with my shirts and socks inside out every night) to something silly like the seams on the fitted bed sheet being uneven (I remake the bed a few times every night before we go to sleep). OCD much?

But what really stressed me out the most was my thong underwear. I can’t even begin to tell you how unnerving and distracting it was for me throughout the day to feel my underwear shift/bunch/twist and not be able to do anything about it, especially while sitting at my desk surrounded by coworkers. It was maddening, but in an effort to avoid the dreaded visible panty line, I wore thongs. The brands didn’t matter because I tried a lot of them and all of their seams bothered me.

One day, I finally had enough. I searched the web using the keywords “comfortable thongs” and immediately the search results were flooded with Hanky Panky references. From message board discussions to customer reviews, everyone who tried Hanky Panky loved them and never looked back.

I had to try them! I bought some of the Original Rise Thongs and wore my first pair the next day. Well, something strange and unfamiliar happened. For the first time in so many, many years, my thong underwear went unnoticed. In fact, the only time I thought about my underwear was when I made a trip to the ladies room and saw that flash of bright lacy color. In other words, no more seams tugging, shifting, or bunching!

I bought several more pairs right away because Hanky Panky, you don’t even know how much your underwear has helped someone like me. I could cry because I feel like I got a part of my life back. The underwear issue was the most problematic for me concerning my OCD and now that I don’t have to worry about uncomfortable thongs anymore, I can work on resolving the other facets of this disorder. One step at a time, right? Thank you Hanky Panky for being that first step! You really do make the best thongs in the world!
