A List of Reasons Why Men Should Wear Thong Underwear

I’ve started a list of reasons why men should wear man thong underwear (or G-strings). Some ideas were mine, but most can be found out on the internet. When you search the net you’ll find many more reasons why a man should wear a thong than I’ve listed here. I’m still adding to this list. It takes a little time on my part to digest, format and add my own comments, so check back often! By the way, as I continue scouring the internet for ideas I have found it hard at times to restrain myself from blasting some of the arguments that I’ve come across. Let’s just say some ideas I’ve found are sopping wet. But, then I had to ask myself, “is wet necessarily a bad thing?” The answer to that is no. Enjoy!

    • Surf Boat Rowing.  This is definitely one of the more practical reasons to wear a thong. It turns out that it is better to expose one’s cheeks for the purpose of rowing.  Although I do not know of anyone wearing thongs for this purpose we do see men stuffing the back side of their Speedos into their bum to expose their bare butts.  Yeah, Seriously! Quite possibly hundreds of public examples can be found at the Annual Manly Life Saving Club Surf Carnival where many lifeguards from Australia and New Zealand gather for competition.  I say avoid the hassle of stuffing your crack and buy a proper swimsuit thong! Just do it!
    • Almost Nude Publication. A great example of this is Sylvester Stallone in his 1985 movie “Rambo: First Blood Part II” during the captured scene. The G-String/Thong that Sylvester Stallone wears can be seen as he’s pulled from a leech infested pond.  But, even if you’re not shooting a high budget film for the movie industry you might find yourself using a G-String for a similar purpose.  Let’s say you desire to photograph yourself or others nude for publication (on, say, the internet) then you might also find yourself concerned over the legalities of doing so. In the United States of America we must keep records in accordance with Title 18, § 2257. If you find that a hassle then a G-string or thong might be exactly what you need!
    • Ventilation.   Aside from wearing nothing but a thong I don’t buy it. To me this is really the same sort of excuse your parents issued (back in the day) to explain why they had the Playboy magazine you found in their bedroom. Yeah, sure, you’re reading Playboy for the articles only. I don’t think so! Just for the record and to be fair I will state that I have worn nothing but a thong in the house to stay cool without using the air-conditioning thereby saving on energy costs. I have to admit that this works quite well during hot weather (above 85° F for me). You will see the difference in your electric bill if you do that often enough during the summer months. But, the ventilation under clothing argument is bull – sorry.
    • Empathy for women.  Some time back I found a post in Yahoo! Answers (I think it was Yahoo! Answers) where a women agreed that men should wear thongs so that they know what it feels like. I think she said something like, ‘if they like thongs so much then they can wear them.’ Well, I say that’s a good point – really. Many guys who would rather die than be caught in a thong are the same guys who find thongs on women exciting. I like the tit-for-a-tat attitude.
    • Motivator to say fit.   Honestly, for anyone to pull of wearing a thong (men or women) you’ve got to be fit. Otherwise a steamy idea could suddenly become a TMI situation. Even if you wear a thong only in the bedroom that’s no excuse to let yourself go.
    • It’s Tribal    This is an interesting argument that, initially, I totally blew off as BS, but now I believe there’s a decent measure of truth to this. Consider all the edgy piercings men and women have adorned themselves with during the late twentieth century (oh, say, from 1980 to present). Piercings are tribal. What about the all-to-common tribal armband tattoo? Compare the fundoshi to men’s thongs. Yeah, okay, so we accept some tribal things, but not necessarily tribal thongs for men – not yet anyway.
    • Choices.  There is the argument that brings to light how it’s socially acceptable for a woman to wear, say, men’s boxers (or “boy shorts”) without the same sort of social stigma a man-thonger might receive. This is a point that I’ve seen in posts by cross-dressers a number of times. Of course it’s a bit different for a man-thonger since we only wear man thong underwear compared to the endless attire a cross-dresser would have, but I say this is a rather good point. It’s just underwear! Why should women have all the choices?
    • Ballet This is probably the least subjective reason to wear what I’ve been describing as a “man-thong” – that is a thong specifically made for and worn by men. For ballet men wear a “dance belt” under their tights. It isn’t referred to as a thong, but essentially it is the same thing. Google it!
    • Wedgies.  Apparently, regular underwear will bunch up in a way that gives the wearer a “wedgie.”  I really would never have believed this if it weren’t for my girlfriend casually mentioning this particular advantage that thongs provide.  It seems counter intuitive, but that’s what she tells me – which is that the fabric making up the backside of regular women’s underwear (panties, bikini and similar) has a tendency of bunching into the infamous wedgie.  Uh, yeah, that’s what she tells me. At this point we’ve both assumed this is a problem encountered primarily by females and not males, but I would be interested in some feedback from men on this topic.   I definitely see the argument of thongs over ordinary boxers under jeans; however, boxer briefs or other tight fitting underwear should solve that problem.  So, for now I don’t buy the story simply because I never had this problem – ever.    On the flipside if you fess up and tell me this is just an excuse to wear man thongs then you have my full support!
    • Exercising while saving on your laundry bill – If you exercise at home try wearing just a thong to prevent getting your clothing full of sweaty body odor.  You’ll not only save money by doing less laundry – it’s environmentally friendly.
    • Feeling Sexy – I’ve asked many man-thongers their reasons for putting on that thong and one answer that comes back a lot is that it feels sexy to wear a man-thong. This is no different than women enjoying their lingerie simply for the sake of feeling sexy. Obviously, man-thongs aren’t accepted by the general population in quite the same way, but that is changing.
    • Prevents Shirt Cocking – Instead of shirt cocking – wear a thong!
    • Super Hero – This is better explained through this YouTube video.

    I love wearing thongs because it gives me pleasure while I feel something very close to my anal also it’s not limited to woman I have the freedom to wear whatever I like appropriate for me and made particularly for men.

  2. Random says:

    As I 25 year old guy I’m sure I can speak for a lot of guys,

    While I was at school every oppurtunity I got I was up at a family members on the NSW mid north coast surfing and body boarding, I used to just free lance under my wetsuit untill one day where I ended up in strife and near knocking my self out with a suspected spinal injury (head first into a sand bar)

    so the ambo’s came took me off to hospital and cut my wetsuit off me for X rays etc only to be left in a hospital gown.

    Ever since then at the age of 18 I bought a G string to wear under my wetsuit and it drove me nuts for the first time wearing it under my wetsuit but as time went on I got used to it wearing it under my wetsuit.

    Wearing it under my wetsuit turnt into wearing it to bed, wearing it to bed turnt to wearing it all day once a week then a couple of times a week then all the time.

    but for me I found personally some of the g strings cause more of that “wedgie” then others, As I have personally discovered that the microfibre one’s (such as the jockey g strings available on ebay just search for “mens jockey g string”)

    I found them extreemly comfertable and wear them all day every day and forget that I’m actually wearing a g string until I drop my dacks. And being microfibre they stretch around and conform to your shape (they even stretch enough when your errect)

    There also light weight, keep you cool as not only do I wear them under my work pants but also under a pair of gym shorts, Heck I even wear them under my board shorts while swimming.

    so from my experiances I’ve found the microfibre ones for guys tend to be the best way over some of the cotton / elastene types.

    But I’ve now been wearing them everyday for the past 7 years and I slipped on a pair of Speedo briefs the other day to do a mini triatholon with a few mates and they felt so bloody weird having all that extra fabric covering my rear end,

    and if your wondering yes I can just run round in speedos and a triatalon singlet doing mini triatalons here in Sydney (NSW Australia) because I like to keep my self fit and healthy and I might as well keep my self fit and keep up that typical “surfers look” stereo type that I tend to carry (blonde hair blue eyes fit and healthy with a tan)

  3. Eric says:

    Ok, nice and convincing stories, anyone ever tried on a string-body ? I like them to sleep in, not too tight and of a ‘breathing’ light fabric like the ones by Doreanse (ebay)..

  4. bonet says:

    I want to wear a thong in public but i dont want it to be seen.

    • Man Thong says:

      @bonet – Do you mean that you desire to sport nothing but a thong in public? Some guys will visit the beach wearing only a man-thong. Why don’t you want to be seen?

    • Brennan says:

      I’m not completely sure about your problem but if it’s that you don’t want people to see your thong slip out accidentally then I had the same problem. I worried about being in public and wondering if people can see my thong. One time when I was at the store, wearing jeans, I bent over to get something and my shirt came up and my thong was clearly exposed. There was a women right behind me and I know she saw my thong. Afterwards I felt relieved. So once it happened, I don’t care if my thong is exposed and people happen to see. So my point is, once it happens the first time, you’ll might not care if people see

  5. Jonathan says:

    I’m not really a big fan of thongs… I like g-strings more… Especially if the back string is made of very thin and sharp metal

  6. Roger says:

    I started wearing thongs for indoor UV tanning, to get a hole body tan. After a while I grew to really liking them and now I wear them all the time. They feel good, it feels like your wearing nothing. This past year I have also been tanning outdoors with just a thong, at the beach or a hidden place in the park. The area I’m in is pretty old fashion so I have to be careful what I do.

  7. Pietro says:

    I have a really great ass that my thong accentuates nicely. I like to get up early with a nice hearty cup of coffee and walk around my back yard in my g string thong. My yard is pretty much closed in by trees, but I feel so sexy in my thing, and only half hope that none of my neighbors wives (or husbands!) will see me!

  8. mike scott says:

    can someone tell me, I’m a UK guy who’s just started wearing thongs, great in this hot weather we’re having, should the thong be worn resting against the buttock cheeks, or tight up between the cheeks? Mine tends to ride up there anyway.

    • Man Thong says:

      A proper fit is an important part of which thong to buy. Generally, we only get three sizes from most, but not all, manufactures. Therefore, the stretchiness of the fabric is part of the overall equation – the fit. For me, at least, I purchase different brands and styles – some work out great others not so great. A couple of times I’ve found variation in size despite having bought exactly the same size, brand and style. The bottom line is the manufacturer. Experiment and find what works for you.

  9. Tino says:

    I have been wearing Man thongs for years. My ex-wife is a thong wearer and she bought me a pair as a gag gift, well at first it was akward but shortly after wards I began to purchase my own..She told me that I have a 10+ nice ass and that I look damn good in them. It also increased my sex life. I love the way they hold my package in place and not flopping around.. Love them and I am a 57 yr old straight 8 male.

  10. Yaneris V. says:

    I am a woman and I love to see a man in a thong! My husband wears them and I love them. I prefer skimpy sexy thongs on him. I really like to see him wear clear-lined thongs like the ones found at http://www.E-kini.com. They are clear-lined so they make him appear nude without having to be. Those are my new favorite ones. A man in a thong = Very Sexy!

    • Steve says:

      My wife bought me my first thongs a few months after we met. I assumed it was a bit of a joke until she told me that she would really like me to wear thongs rather than boxers. I knew by then that she only ever wore tiny g-strings and I found that really sexy. And i mean tiny – previous girlfriends had worn thongs, but these were something else. So I thought that given i liked her underwear, i ought to give the thongs a go.

      Now I never wear anything else and my wife wouldn’t want me to. I love the comfort and support and am glad my wife suggested it as I probably wouldn’t have tried a thong otherwise.

  11. johny says:

    i wear thong undies around the house and i live with my mom, she thinks its the norm for the young people, which is awsome. i also wear my thong swimsuits out in my yard, sunbathing, in the garden, the public pool and the beach. ive even went into stores with just a tshirt and thong bathing suit on. never, ever have i got an flack, so now i have like 15 thong bathing suits.

  12. Dude says:

    Simple for me. Most men have a condition that most are not aware of. I found out after two surgeries I was one of those men. I remember time and time again, doctors telling us, support for men is important, and if not done properly, can lead to health issues. Rather than go into all those issues and the causes, I would rather go into why these are good for your health.
    Would you want to wear spandex all day to properly support everything..and event then, it doesn’t support it correctly? All I can say..legs going numb just standing there..sucks. These things hold everything in place as they should, AND allow you to move and even be active while correctly retaining the support needed in the right way. After I have spent TONS of money trying to find the right thing so I was not back under the knife…I found the thong. Apparently our ancestors knew something we didn’t.

  13. Christopher says:

    Well I just started to wearing thongs today! And I love the way they feel! But I hated that the way man underwear gives me a wedgy boxers and whity tightys they all do it to me!

  14. Jonathan says:

    I’ve been wearing thong underwear since 2000. I also bought a thong swimsuit and wore it a few times until I realized that I could be nude at certain beaches. I liked the feeling of being sexy when I started, but now it’s just a habit. I hardly think about it any more. This is link to a report I wrote in 2000: http://www.authspot.com/Journals/A-True-Thong-Story.58776

  15. Joao says:

    Just bought a pair of microfiber thongs, at first I could feel it but after a couple days wearing I can barely tell if it’s there, awesome feeling of comfort and support down there. I’m sold to them. I don’t care about panty lines, only comfort.

    But I’m kinda concerned about what women think about it, searching on the internet it looks like most hate thongs on a man. Why is that?

    • Man Thong says:

      My girlfriend is totally fine with me wearing men’s thongs. It’s not a big deal with us. Many women out there are fine with it too. You just need to wear them simply because that’s your choice and your preference. Everything else will fall into place from there.

      • Joao says:

        Thank for your words, but I’m still afraid to wear them. I have asked opinions about men’s thongs on my country’s menshealth forum and everyone answered with criticism and that only gay people wear them, that I should go for it if I want a wedgie all day flossing my b#tt crack(I have tried and this is not true at all),… Portugal, the macho men country.

        • Man Thong says:

          I’m sure other men in Portugal feel inhibited too. If you wear what you like with confidence then you’ll help others feel more comfortable about wearing man thongs.

  16. Terry says:

    Blimey! – they work for me, for whatever reason. Nobody is going to die if I switch to boxers (OK so maybe a few if I’ve been drinking!). Just go with it, it will (mostly) be fine
    In all of the death and destruction that I will deal with tomorrow, I can safely say, nobody will care if I am wearing a thong! (which I will be, of course)
    Nice as they are, and they are, life is out there as well. . .
    Terry
    (who loves wearing them, but really does not look good in them! enough material for a conference? (maybe not!)

  17. Mike says:

    Gay 27 years old and wear man thongs almost every day, been a fan of them since high school. Same goes for bikini briefs. For you men out there gay, straight, married, or single, if you wanna wear a thong I say go for it all the way. I absolutely see no problem with it and neither should you. Gentlemen wear your thong with pride!

  18. abcabc198240 says:

    I like exposing butt to the public. Also, it gives good ventillation

  19. Hart1011 says:

    hey Mike I’m like you I see no problem with things nor G-strings in 30 gay and love em I always like the jockstraps’

  20. nadros says:

    I’ve been a daily thong wearer since 2008. I don’t regret a single day I’ve been wearing them. True, I wasn’t in the best shape when I started, and because of that I got on a diet and lost 40 pounds. Let me tell you, they are amazing. It’s too bad there aren’t that many local retailers that sell them, but online you’re spoiled for choice. Times are changing, and the man-thong is in. ‘Bout time we caught up!

  21. Andrew says:

    My wife brought me a pack last week. At first I was a little skeptical and unsure. I told my wife, I’d try it at least once. Well needless to say, I’m glad I did, I prefer them to any boxers or boxer-briefs. I love the way it feels and love going out in public wearing them under my clothing. Although I’m constantly thinking about if someone is looking at me and what if they see my thong lines through my clothing. It’s actually quite thrilling to be honest. There’s a small part of me that wants to get caught, then again who cares what I’m wearing. I’m not quite brave enough yet to get thong swimwear and wear it to the public pool or beach, but I’d probably try a private pool setting first. Thanks to all the comments on this page, it’s crushed any doubt I have had. I can definitely say to anyone who is carious, get some and try it, you won’t regret it at all. -Drew, 31 straight married male.

    • Scott Anderson says:

      Andrew, I am going to South Beach soon in Miami and am going to sport a new thong swim suit. My wife is doing the same. We are excited about the freedom. I love wearing thongs under jeans. I don’t know who wouldn’t want that feeling!

  22. johny says:

    im a guy and thats all i wear are thongs, mens thongs only tho. i wear thong bathing suits too. they sure dry quicker then stupid diaper shorts as i call them. i think more guys, if you got the body, flaunt it, girls do all the time and i have sen some that shouldn’t even be in a bikini PERIOD. so guys, get out there and get thonging.

  23. Riendemoins says:

    When I was a kid, I used to rip my underwear so that they would look like a thong. However, It would have only been for a short period of time, I was afraid that my mom would find them in my underwear drawer.

    As I grew older and starting sleeping around with girls, at some point one of them “left” her g-string at my house. I never knew if she only forgot it or, did she leave it as a souvenir for me. Nonetheless, I started wearing it everynow and then, just enjoying the look and the feel of it. It had snaps on the side, so I could easily remove it, if I wanted to.
    As the years went by, more girls “left” their underwears. I can say I have a sizable collection by now. Did I wore them all? Yes I did!

    I actually never had the courage to walk in a store and grab a box, but over the years, I went through a few sex shops with girlfriends for toys mostly, but at the back of my head, I was always looking at those racks, thinking to myself, geez, those must be pretty confortable, it seems like it has all the right amount of support for our junk. At some point, I just decided to go by myself, walk in there and start looking at what was available.

    I bought strings, thongs, but my favorite, my last purchase, a jock/thong. Unlike the string, those have large elastic that goes below the belt line, so you can actually wear it as you please, no one will notice unless you do it on purpose.

    I do wear them at work and I enjoy it. I work in the fashion industry, I think of all the guys here, i’m the only one who isn’t gay. Which makes me think, I’m probably not the only one wearing some!

    I like knowing I could get caught, I love the feel of it, I would definetly and will definetly get some more.
    I do have to admit, I just love the impressions on a girl’s face, when she knows, that you know at what she just looked like.

    Is this thread useless without a pic? Probably!

  24. Ray says:

    I am 65 and still active in farming. I wear all types of underwear but I really
    like thongs in the summer. They keep every thing in place and are way cooler than
    boxers or boxer-briefs. I am a straight 8 farmer and still like to look at the ladies.
    Thongs adjust to your anatomy if you have an erection . Also, my wife says
    I still look sexy for an old guy. Wear what you want and don’t let anyone tell you
    what to wear.

  25. Temo says:

    I am a straight guy who stopped wearing underwear about 12 years ago. I found it a bit uncomfortable when doing sports, specially running. The jack straps were not to my liking, the solution was to wear a thong. I found it to be the most comfortable clothing to wear. Now I just wear thongs or G strings. I think too many people are not open minded. Thongs keep everything in its right place, and you feel like you are nude underneath. There are many opinions, opinions are just opinions. You should not be influenced by these. Try it, it may seem uncomfortable at first, but after a few days you would not even know you are wearing a thong or G string. Men wearing thongs is a well kept secret. Stores are now selling mens thongs. It tells that they are becoming
    popular and are becoming very common for men to wear them. The companies would not be selling thongs if they were not making money.
    Wear your thong with pride.

  26. Robert lee says:

    I’m 36 been wearing them in the bedroom since my first real girlfriend when I was 18 (it was her idea) and most girls i date would find them in the drawer and want to see me in them and my current girlfriend doesn’t let me ware anything but thongs unless I go to the Dr ,its a huge turn on for her that she never tires of

    • Scott Anderson says:

      I’m a perpetual thong wearer as well. You mentioned the Dr. Last week I completely forgot about a physical I had that day and went to work in a thong like usual. I don’t even think about it anymore so I go to the appointment and all is going well and then he tells me to drop trau so he can check for a hernia and do a prostate exam. I started to unbuckle and then it hit me! OMG I am wearing a thong. I stopped in my tracks and he asked me what was wrong. I just blushed and said well doc, I usually dress more conservatively then this and I dropped my pants. He just chuckled and said I hear those are very comfortable. I replied, yes they are! He replied, not to worry, we can still do the exam. I guess I don’t have to worry about it anymore!

  27. Jules says:

    I wear thongs and g strings especially lace! I have many women’s thongs and g strings modified for men to wear as I believe that womens thongs and g strings are of better quality! Wearing them feels so comfortable under slacks or jeans as opposed boxer shorts which ride up and cause you to sweat which just becomes terrible and unpleasant. I own thongs from Victoria’s Secret, Agent Provocateur and Simone Perele just to name a few.

    Nothing compares to an Agent Provocateur ‘Maddy’ thong or a Victoria’s Secret Lacie thong adorning your bum!

  28. abcabc198240 says:

    I travel a lot so I prefer carrying light weight baggage. Lace undy is one of the clothing which decreases my baggage weight.
    Not only this it keeps me horny through out the day. It also makes it easy for hand jobs which I generally get it done by my colleague.
    The only problem which I have is when I go for meetings. I used to be little bit cautious so, that the lace doesn’t comes out.

  29. sexyboy says:

    I started wearing when I was a teen when I am alone in my home. Later it became a habit as it is the best toy for me to make myself horny. Earlier I used to have only few gstrings. Now my entire underwear wardrobe was replaced with gstrings.
    I worn them to the gym, to the dr office, to my masseuse, to public change rooms and of course in front of my wife. The only real reactions I’ve gotten have been when my now wife first discovered them the first time she got into my pants. She was hesitant to have sex with me thinking I was gay. But after releasing my male power she loves them now.

    A few years ago while I was sharing a room with one of the female in the youth hostel saw me in them by accident and was shocked but didn’t say anything negative. I stayed with her in the room for almost a week. She got accustomed with me and I could change my dress boldly in front of her as she is a known devil. It seems I was the first person whom she saw wearing a gstring. I got handjob done by her on the last day and she felt convenient to get her hands into my pants.

    I’m ok with that as I recognize seeing someone in a gstring is a shocking event. That said, my wife certainly doesn’t want others to know. I kind of do just so I don’t have to feel like I’m hiding a secret. My goal is to eventually get both of us to the beach in gstrings.

    As for the professionalism comment, trust me…there is nothing better than wearing a gstring under a slim fit suit. A nice slim fit suit can certainly show underwear lines without being excessively tight. I’m less inclined to care about the lines than the comfort you feel…boxers are certainly excess in material and gstrings simply make the whole suit feel glove-like. I highly recommend trying it.

  30. MaleThongMovement says:

    Five years ago, when I was 24, my current Fiance and I had just started dating. I had been curious to try a thong for a while before, but I cared too much about what other people would think if they knew and didn’t want to be mistaken as gay or bi-curious (common inhibitor with the masculine male mind). One day I bought a simple thong at a sex shop, nothing too fancy, and surprised my then-girlfriend with it (she was 18 at the time). She laughed and it made me feel insecure, so I laughed with her and played it off like it was just silly fun and games, rejection never feels good. Before I got rid of it so she wouldn’t laugh again, I tried it again and again in private and loved how comfortable and freeing it was to my surprise.

    As I got older, I began to care less and less about what others thought, and began to think more about what was right for me instead. I was a boxer shorts guy as they were socially acceptable, but got tired of them rising up my abdomen throughout the day and giving me uncomfortable wedgies. I ended up liking boxer briefs and made the switch. As time went on with boxer briefs, I noticed more and more how my jewel pouch would end up toward the sides getting pinched, and worse, tucked backward getting pinched. Even the most conforming stretchy pouches would give me uncomfortable sweaty wedgies at work. I decided to give thongs another go since they seemed to have the right anatomy.

    I told my girlfriend (current Fiance) about my underwear complaints and mentioned I was going to try a thong as I didn’t really have many options left (Commando might be liberating, but I wanted comfortable support). I had just tried jock straps and didn’t like how the bands rubbed the base of my gluteus’. To my surprise, she said I should try a thong, so I bought a simple conservative pair that were low-rise as to avoid any accidental slips throughout the day. Wow! what a relief! the way they contour around my package is to perfection. No pinching ever, and they hug my jewels in such a way that they feel at ease and very happy. The backside band doesn’t feel like a wedgie (depending on the brand), and after a little bit, I feel like i’m wearing nothing at all. The thong doesn’t move around throughout the day, and it keeps everything right in its place. And yes its true, I am cooler on warmer days with a major reduction in sweat.

    Now my fiancé (same girl that laughed years ago) loves them. The main difference, I wore them with confidence rather than goofy insecurity like I did when she thought it was a joke (although that’s sometimes a good way to break the ice). Suddenly she saw them as sexy, and I catch her looking frequently. I didn’t think I would wear them daily, but I do now. Like women wearing thongs, I think body type is a factor but at the same time, theres lots of men that love a big booty girl in a thong. Not sure if women feel the same, but I think the odds are in your favor if she already likes your body. I do feel sexier, even though I wear plain basic thongs, and it seems like I’m projecting a sexy aura or something because I seem to get a lot more attention. Even though I’m perfectly happy with my lady, it’s a confidence booster to feel attractive.

    Moral of the story: You are only gay if you are attracted to men, wearing a thong doesn’t change your sexual preference. Most people say otherwise out of closed mindedness, ignorance, homophobia, or because they are trying to portray themselves as more masculine, some might even be rejecting their closet gay selves. Sometimes people even say contradictory statements to how they really feel, in fear of how they will be misinterpreted socially. Sometimes women reject the idea for their own potential social misperceptions, and sometimes its just a shock factor because it’s not mainstream in the U.S.. I understand the desire to factor how others feel about things, be sure to put more emphasis on your needs/desires and not worry so much about what others think, its your body and theres no problem being different as we all are. I’m not saying you have to tell the world, but if it’s comfortable for you, then do it. Knowing what you want and being confident in your choices, usually helps offset adverse reactions. If a female lashes out, confidently explain the comfort factor and how its different for a man since we have to pack extra fragile cargo that moves around. The fact is, there are other countries in the world where men wearing thongs is completely acceptable.

    Confidence in itself, portrays masculine traits.

    I hope this story helps someone overcome their inhibitions to join the club.

      Thanks for sharing that awesome story! Man thongs have gotten more and more popular as a choice – an option. Face it – some guys like to wear thongs for a variety of reasons. This site (and others like http://www.mensthongforum.com) help break down stereotypes that might turn guys away from something they would otherwise enjoy and love.

    I believe many are becoming more open to the idea of men wearing thong underwear and accepting it. I started wearing thongs in 1991 when I started running for track. The comfort and support was just what I was looking for. I continue to wear thongs daily. Back then there were not many option for men but there were a few. Not unless you wore women’s underwear but there is just not enough material up front….. Over the years I have purchased many styles and brand of thongs and have in my opinion waisted plenty of money doing so. The past 5 years many online store have come around to cater to men that wear thongs. From Lacey to cotton and the comfort level designed more for men. Since I have worn them for so long I don’t think about it being not accepted. My wife for 10 years thinks nothing of it and enjoys them as much as I do. I wear them from my bicycle to the track to the bedroom and to the office and are very appropriate for any situation. I don’t want sell another companies product but I found my mot favorite pair and have bought nothing else for 2 years now. The material is awesome and the fit for me is perfect. It like I am wearing nothing. The style is M25 and the material is called thinskinz by skinzwear. This are many other sites I have bought from for more exotic styles but this is my daily. I agree with many of the other posters on this site and hope it become more main stream and accepted by all especially in the US.

    So I’m 45 and straight and I just started wearing. Things and gstrings. Now I wear them all the time. They are so much cooler and easier to wear under my clothes. The problem is that I’m single and I’m worried that no woman is going to find it attractive or even worse they will thinks it’s weird. I’m pretty good looking and work out all the time. My body isn’t perfect but it’s not bad.

    Any thoughts?

      My girl is totally fine with my thongs – and I wore them on the first date (just to set the tone). Lots of guys like man-thongs for many reasons. If someone is going to nix you over an underwear choice then what else is around the corner? Think about that! Scaring off the few women who absolutely cannot tolerate your love of thongs is a blessing. Keep on thongin’

    So I just read your article and I thought I’d give you some feedback regarding wearing thongs to prevent wedgies.

    I’m a fairly hairy man and growing up I always struggled with wedgies just due to the bodies movement during every day activities. It didn’t matter what style of underwear i wore, loose fit or tight, or what material they were made out of.

    It wasn’t until my mid 20’s that I had the courage to buy a thong, and initially it had nothing to do with comfort, but it was more about feeling sexy. Eventually I discovered that the feeling of having a “permanent wedgie” technically speaking, is absolutely nothing like an un-natural wedgie formed by bunched up underwear and is in fact more comfortable as you’ve got more freedom of movement.

    The main issue really was that normal underwear tends to float around due to the layer of body hair between your skin and the material. Causing it to ride up the move you move around. So I can verify that it definitely is a valid argument, wearing a thong to prevent wedgies, or just simply moving into uncomfortable positions.
