Was watching Prison Break Season 5 Episode 1 and came across this very sentence at the beginning:

"What is it with you killers that put the satin on women's panties anyhow?"

What does "put satin on women's panties" mean?

This is funny, I think it's a phrase taken from a Tupac song. Satin is a "sexy" fabric.

"You put the satin on women's panties" in more-boring-speak would be something like "You are the reason women wear sexy underwear."

  • wow.. I'm glad I didn't put forward a guess... I thought it meant something extremely vulgar! – Tom22 May 2 '17 at 23:22
  • I think it could be taken in a more vulgar way if the audience was so inclined -- like with any good euphemism. – tobybot May 3 '17 at 20:24

The implication may be that a woman gets wet when thinking about a killer. The cotton panties suffused with the juices turn to satin.

Oh, and the sentence needs a comma before "anyhow".
