If Men’s Bikinis and Thongs Weren’t Taboo
Ok, this might be hard, but let’s imagine for a minute that all the options for women were normal options for guys at the store too. Along with us having an equivalent store to Victoria Secret nearby. What would our underwear world be like? Would there be as much excitement related to our bikinis and thongs? Would this make things better for us?
If this was the case, we should be able to assume that how things are for women would be similar for us guys. There would be an acceptance that guys can wear bikinis and thongs without some of the current stigmas attached to them. I still think bikinis and more so thongs are still going to have some stigmas. For one I don’t think people are going to get past how can a thong be comfortable with fabric between the cheeks. I still would say they both would get categorized as sexy underwear.
Now for the excitement factor I feel it still would be there with them. My guess is less than 50% of women wear bikinis or thongs especially regularly. I’d say even lower with swimwear. I feel women probably get some excitement when buying or picking out a bikini or thong. We have to assume with the selection that is out there in underwear they must enjoy shopping for it and wearing it. Maybe we wouldn’t have as much excitement and interest as we do now, but I’d find it hard to believe we’d lose very much of it.
I would say things would be better for us. We’d be able to get our hands on our underwear in person instead of waiting for the package to come. There would have to be a better selection and cheaper per pair options available to us. We wouldn’t have to be bashful or as bashful. I know women aren’t as open to showing off their undies as they are portrayed to be. There’d be a better chance that a few guys would be sporting some form fitting swimwear at the beach and pool. I don’t think the swim thongs will still be seen too often though.
I probably wouldn’t get into blogging if our underwear availability would be the same as women’s. I still feel I’d be into underwear and have more than I really need. Just wouldn’t feel I needed to be a voice to say that men can wear skimpy underwear and swimwear. What’s your thoughts on if we had the same selection of underwear and swimwear and availability of it as women do?
