I originally tried to use steak to make the beef jerky but this presented a few problems.

The first problem was cutting the steak into thin even slices.  The slices needed to be cut evenly and have a large surface area so I could cut the underwear pattern out of it.  I tried to use the trick of slightly freezing the meat then slice it, but I still had a hard time cutting even slices.  Also, the grain of the steak started to separate in the drying process, which isn't a problem for making basic beef jerky, but was certainly a problem for structurally sound briefs.  If you try to make this with steak, I recommend having the butcher pre-slice the steak for you at about 1/4" - 3/8" thick.

The prep for ground beef jerky is much simpler than with steak jerky.  Ground beef is ideal for this project because I can customize the size and shape of the jerky I dehydrate.  This is helpful when cutting out the underwear pattern.

Marinating Ground Beef: Put ground beef in a large bowl and add all the seasoning.  Mix together with your hands!!

The ultimate in over-consumerism and waste. I shouldn't have to explain that something was killed against its will to make that beef and you use it as a joke. Wtf is wrong with the world nowadays. People are starving to death in Africa. Why should you care though hey?

Really? Who says it's going to waste? Get over yourself Mother Teresa...

Maybe we should all make a pair of jerky-briefs and send them to Africa?
I'm going to make and send some... but, I'm going to wear them to a sporting event first... just for extra tenderizing... because I care for my fellow human beings, and their ability to chew a tough piece of meat!

So where is the waste? They are edible. No doubt the plan is to eat them off your partner. depend in the size they would be good for more than one fun time activity, pretty much guaranteeing they will be consumed to the last bit. Without waste the charge of consumerism isn't valid. Animal have been dying to provide nutrition for other animals for a long time. Who is to say it's wrong with infallible certainty?

You've got me there, I honestly didn't think anyone would wear dried-out old meat round their crotch and then eat it. Can't say it's something I'd do and I had assumed that this was a joke. If it's a completely serious instructable then you're right, it's not at all wasteful. Just really, really weird. Oh well, I guess it takes all sorts!

For those comments that are rude about how disgusting it is to eat the jerky OFF of your partner, it's not like it's IN them. There are far worse acts done in the bedroom with just the bodies- mouth and lower body parts included. Get over it. To each their own. Besides, you don't have to make it wearable. I like the idea simply because it's novel. I'd make them as little snack favors just for fun, not to wear. :P
that's just so nasty. have fun with your yeast infection.
Do you still pair a red wine with beef, in this situation? Let's see... is it red with beef, white with fish? Or the other way around? I get confused.

If you can't cut the steak thin enough, you could just cut it as thin as you can manage and then hammer it flat with a mallet.

I keep thinking, where Fruit Roll-Ups, Fruit By The Foot, etc.. were originated as... But with this one, I can't help but think of Lady Gaga at the 2010 MTV music Video awards.....
Actually back in the 70's there was a product called CANDY PANTS which was sheet cherry licorish cut into a bikini shape and tied with licorish laces. I was a maid at the time and used to find them at least once a week always had a part eaten away, hmmmmmm well yeah that left nothing to think about!

Lady Gaga's been there, done that.

One question comes to mind no else seems to want to ask, but as a realist I WILL! WHYTHE HELL WOULD YOU WANT TO MAKE,WEAR OR EVEN CONTEMPLATE THIS IDEA? TELL ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
With the HOT sauce and CHILI flakes, wouldn't it be a bit too much for undies? I've itched my man bits several hours after chopping chili's and very much regretted it.
My other concern is, how durable are they? LOL

OMG, as a big hiker and outdoorsman, this would be the sexiest thing ever, especially if she had a bra made out of deer hide, and a headdress with antlers.

OK! Let's bump this up a notch. Jump in the hot-tub to soften things up a bit and chew away! Secondary benefit? Soup!

For the sake of you loved one's special places, please be careful not to make the jerky too spicy...

Oh my gosh. So much wrong with this idea... but I give you credit for having the nerve to post this. :)
I had to laugh at this comment, it is just so, so wrong.

Yet, Kudos to Carleyy, if only I had an imagination like this, and the Instructable documentation skills to back it up!
