A vestigal and hence slowly disappearing article of clothing intended to cover a woman's vagina. Descended from underwear, articles of clothing used to catch daily sweat and grim, and thus washed more frequently than outerwear, the panty has become obselete in the Industrialized world as most people now change and send to wash clothes at least once if not multiple times a day.

Though its shrank from knee-length briefs or knickers, the panty often comes into conflict with other intimate women's appeal including: pantyhose, garter belts, bustiers, teddies and body-stockings. Underneath form fitting clothes, the panty's tendencies to form an outline or "pantyline" is a universal concern among body conscious women in the United States and UK.

Because it explicitly covers the vagina and must be moved out of the way or moved completely before sex, it constitutes a socially significant barrier to intimacy and erotic play.
This was their seventh date and it was obvious Adam was dying to move past second base and on to intercourse. Jane yearned for it as well. Still, she couldn't just rip off her own panty without coming off as a domineering slut and Adam was far to shy to do it. Hence, they were reduced to a night of heavy petting and separately masturbating themselves to sleep.

The "lower" underwear

A device usually made of fabric used to protect the delicate outer parts of the vagina. Can also be made from more durable materials such as steel, iron, or leather...

Not the best thing on earth, but right next to it...
She's got little hearts on her panties!

After I spent the night at her house, she gave me a pair of her sweet sheets as a souvenir.

Ladies undergamet
Sarah wears panties under her jeans.

a garment of such genius that it firmly covers the vulva without touching the anus thereby collecting a woman's best smells while avoiding her worst. Another genius feature of panties are that their edges end right at the natural crease where the woman's leg bends and slope upwards towards her hip bones thereby visually lengthening her legs and narrowing her pelvic region.
The only thing better than a beautiful woman wearing panties is a beautiful woman wearing nothing at all.

Perhaps the creepiest word ever invented. When said to a female during copulation it conjures images of kitty porn, and in that awful feel sick to your stomach way.

Panties are the things girls wear under their pants or ruffled skirt, may or may not have the days of the week written on them.

Why can't we come up with a better word?!??!?!
Drew gave out a low, SUPER creepy whisper, "...take off your panties..."
She immediately wanted to vomit, and turn inside-out and then vomit again.
