I want to wear a thong

I want to wear a thong
So you made the decision you want to try a thong. You got past the idea of a piece of fabric between the cheeks. Or you really like the look of them on people you’ve seen. It hit you that many women wear them and why would they wear uncomfortable underwear.

It was definitely the look of them on women that drove my desire to try a thong. Seemed like the next step in my underwear journey after falling in love with bikini underwear. Now thongs are a pretty taboo option for underwear for men. They’re definitely seen as women’s underwear only. I also feel they are seen as just sexy underwear to many and not functional other than maybe for eliminating visible underwear lines for females. This makes it hard for both sexes to get started into the style. Especially in the teen years where I’ve found a lot of us started getting interested in the skimpier underwear styles.

We know you are here because you want to try a thong. Guessing that means you don’t know where to start. Or maybe you’re looking for more information on wearing a thong. Like I said, thongs are a misunderstood underwear style, so most parents and friends probably won’t understand your desire. Of course this is even more so for males over females. Females of course have the options to browse thongs in stores. This of course is a great way to explore them. You get to feel the fabric for softness, stretch, see the cut of the back, the width of it, etc. For males it is off to the Internet where it can come down to more trial and error. We have to rely on reviews and description of the product if there is much of one.

I’ve written other posts that can help guide you on looking for a thong or a few thongs to give a try. Check the following posts out.

    Thongs are great. I wear them more than anything else. And my girl loves me in them.

    So many make unrealistic suppositions about thongs, they don’t hurt, and your genitalia isn’t getting pressed and squashed. If you buy the right size and fabric, thongs can be very comfortable. For bigger men such as myself, finding ANYTHING that fits is very difficult. Please go to the forums page and check out the section about thongs. I posted links to 6 or 7 thongs that will fit larger men and they are all reasonably priced.

    Fast forward almost 6 years from my first string bikini to when I was 19. I was Christmas shopping alone and stepped into the Jockey store and they had mens thongs, I cannot pin point the moment I wanted to try thongs but here I was and they had them. I bought a 2 pack. They were baggy, not a bad tail but overall not terrific; I still have them for nostalgia. I later found CK thongs and eventually the Undergear catalog. I wore them secretly for years then stopped. With the help of this group I probably wear them daily now. You have to find the right brand, size, material but they really are comfortable and worth giving them a try.

    I’d say that, for beginners, thongs are one of the trickier styles to get used to. Not just the fabric between the cheeks issue, but that not all are intended as just ordinary underwear. Some versions are definitely for the bedroom (the gimmicky elephants trunk ones for example), and are not the best for wearing for a long time. That is not always spelt out in the website displays, which would be easy to see if they were available in a store. Another issue that is difficult to tell from websites is that some versions allow a fair bit of stretch while others are tighter, especially with an erection. I prefer the tight fit as the support is better. You’ll have to decide what you like with this, as this is probably split about 50:50 for preference, and manufacturers have to cater for all tastes.

    We’ve all been caught with these problems, so for anyone trying a thong for the first time, if you get caught with such a style, don’t give up, try something else.

    If you’re trying a thong for the first time I highly recommend spending some money on a high quality thong. As someone who originally only wore a thong on random occasions as more of a novelty, the cheap thongs just don’t last and also just aren’t comfortable for daily wear. Some of my suggestions for beginners would be the Jack Adams modal bikini thong, the MeUndies mens thongs, and basically any gregg homme thong. You will spend a bit more, especially for Gregg Homme or Jack Adams its so worth it!

      I must respectfully disagree with your opinion about price equaling better quality. I have some very good quality thongs that have lasted me for quite a while that I’ve spent less than $3-5 on. I recommend that you always read customer reviews first. To see what type of quality your investing in. Just because they’re more expensive doesn’t mean they’re better quality.

      I’m personally on the fence with this. I have some thongs that I paid more than $25 dollars for and the material looks more used than I feel it should, but it is still a comfortable thong. I also have recently purchased the iKingsky thong, $20 for 4 and they fit great and so far have washed well.
      For someone looking to wear a thong for the first time, check reviews, buy when on sale so if it doesn’t work out you don’t feel like you wasted more money, and if your first pair isn’t perfect – don’t give up try a few others. I’m sure we all have underwear in the drawer that we were disappointed by.

    On my recent trip to Sicily, I was disappointed to see only one guy wearing a thong, but I was encouraged by the fact he was sunbathing on a busy section of the main beach, rather than at the nudist zone where I spotted three last year. He appeared to be on his own, which impressed me even more because having someone with you makes it easier to bare almost all. When he got up from his sun lounger, I expected him to pull on some shorts to move about, but he walked past several people on sun loungers before disappearing from view. Would love to have chatted with him to ask when he got into thongs, but he didn’t reappear.

      I remember my frist thongs back in the middle of the 90’s. You will go though a few pairs that you will not like and or they will not fit or fill good when you are wearing them. I remember how I got my first thong ever. I remember that my sister would get in the mail, a catalog were you get magazines of different companies that they would send to you in the mail for free. This is when we had no internet. One day I found the catalog and I called the add and it was for prevailing sport and within a week the prevailing sport catalog was at my mailbox. My dad and my sister never said anything to me about the men’s catalog showing up in the mailbox. I aslo remember looking at all the male models and I knew that I would never look like them ever, and I still don’t look like them to this day. I had a chance to buy a lot of there products over the years. I did get a few pairs that just did not fit at first. But after awhile I figured it out and i buoght a lot of thongs from them. I also remember that there was a women’s underwear shop in a small town that was located near me. One day a got the nerve to go into this shop. I walked in and the old women asked me how I was doing and what I was looking for. Then I told her that I was interested in men’s thongs and full back bikinis, she pointed me to a rack in the corner of the shop and there they were. I bought a few from the shop for the first time. These were my first thongs. Today the store is out of business or they moved to a different location. The thongs did not wear to bad. But when I started to wash them and dry them and overtime they got over stretch the lastic around the waist band. Then I went back to prevailing sport and bought from them up to when they went out of business too. These were my first thongs ever. Happy thong and bikini hunting.

    The thong was originally worn exclusively by men. It is related to the loin cloth. The Japanese fundoshi is essentially a thong, and exclusively worn by men. It is only because the first thong swimsuit was made for women, and that g-strings were instituted during the 1939 Worlds Fair when the mayor of New York insisted they be worn by nude dancers, that they got linked to women. Otherwise, the original thong is a mans garment.

    I love the way the thong feels on my body, you feel it always, especially when you’re walking, but it doesn’t hurt (and if it does, you bought the wrong thong!) To me, it’s like having my lover’s hand on my ass the whole time and she never lets go, as if to say “You’re mine and I will never leave you!”

    I have always loved thongs , like many of us here . I wear them as swimwear when it is appropriate . I have recently moved away from them as underwear towards tanga designs which I find more comfortable and practical for all day wear . I still get that nice feeling of special thoughtful undergear selecting mainly half back seats and the great pouch front support from the front triangle . I’m also more prepared to wear tangas in the changing room to for my swims .
