(round 2) WOMEN & GIRLS: Why wear Thongs?

This is the second round of this question after limited response.

---

I'm seeking to conduct some (very) informal research on the topic and wonder what are some of the many reasons that women and girls wear thong underwear and/or swimwear.

I'm seeking serious answers from those with firsthand experience, not a "well they must be..." or "I would never..." or the like. To assist with demographic classification, also please include age or age range in answers.

Surveys consistently put the female thong-wearing population at 28%. This means that for every 100 female readers of this question, 28 are likely to be wearing thongs at the time. 2,800 women and girls for every 10,000 female readers. That said, this question should have garnered many answers.

Please leave a comment if you are in this large group!

Update:

This originally garnered only 11 real answers (out of only 15 total) in this thread: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AiVB....

    I tried them out of curiosity. I mean i always heard about how they are sexy and saw that many women did wear them. So i tried them out for a while and although some may think they are sexy and do hide panty lines, personally I think boyshorts are sexier, so I stick to those instead.

    You have way tooo much time on your hands Did u even go back & read what you wrote before you posted it ?? I didn't think so !! Instead of worrying how to play a game how about you learn how to write a sentence !! Reading is also another past time you could try !!

    1. Because granny panties are gross.

    2. Avoid pantilines (the obvious reason)

    3. They're comfy and sexy
