I don't mind, but there sure a lot of people out there, that may be turned off. You should be prepared for that. I think it's sort of cute, providing they fit you and are tasteful. Not sure what size you take, but for a guy, I'd stay away from a thong or something equally skimpy, with regards to the "junk" situation. Maybe something with more coverage like boy shorts or hip huggers. There's always granny panties, too.
