Looks like sexy time has a whole new meaning.
A doctor on TikTok has gone viral for claiming that one should never sleep in the nude. Dr. Anthony Youn’s video entitled, “Why you should never sleep without underpants!” has since gained over 11 million views.
“The average person passes gas 15 to 25 times a day, and this can happen while you’re sleeping,” the Detroit-based physician explained. “A scientific study proved every time you pass gas you’re spraying a tiny amount of fecal material.”
While that is gross but true, the 48-year-old doctor said underwear can help eradicate some of the germs.
“And that same study shows your tighty-whities will catch all of these particles,” he continued. “So, for the sake of your bed partner, please sleep with your underwear on.”
Youn also posted the video on his YouTube page. In a comment, he added more information regarding the use of female undergarments: “For women, if your gyno tells you to sleep without underwear then listen to them. For guys, put your tighty-whities on before bed.”
Fans couldn’t help but joke at the doctor’s statements and took to TikTok and YouTube’s comments sections to express their shock. One user wrote, “Fecal matter on the bedsheets. What a delightful thought. Thanks, underwear. You’re the real MVP.”
Another added, “I love you Dr. Youn, but when I am in my own bed my underwear or lack thereof is my own business.”
“I never sleep in the nude because I’m scared if the house catches fire I have to run outside naked,” joked one fan.
One teased, “Joke’s on you. I don’t have a partner.”
This isn’t the first time the plastic surgery doctor has gone viral for his medical advice. In another video posted in June, he called out the medical community over its failure to recognize a painful condition tied to breast implants known as “breast implant illness.”
“Breast implants can cause a constellation of symptoms in some women, called BII,” he wrote in the video’s caption. “Yes, I believe it’s REAL. But I also believe that most women do just fine with implants. But definitely not all.”
“Throughout my training, I was told it [breast implant illness] was hogwash — and that’s what I believed,” he told The Post at the time, also noting that his “most common procedure is breast implants.”
