I'm a guy & I wear thongs and I don’t think much about it. If people have very little to do or are so insecure about their sexuality, then that’s their business. In addition, women have & continue to break the double standards than have been imposed on them by men & it’s time that us men do the same. If a lot of women wear thongs and find them very comfortable, why can’t men?
I don’t wear thongs because of their looks or because I care about what people in general, fashion designers, & fashion critics think that is “in” or “out.“ In fact, I agree with women when they say that boxers briefs are the best looking underwear for men & that thongs look ugly on MOST (not all) men. Most men don’t have the nice butt shape to look good in thongs. But since I wear all of my underwear under my pants or shorts & I don’t walk around in my underwear, especially in public, I pick my underwear based on comfort & not what’s fashionable, masculine or feminine.
I wear thongs because of their unmatched support & because I personally think that thongs are the most comfortable type of underwear you can wear. Thongs give me the best support, in particular during sport activities, almost as if I was wearing a jock strap but a WHOLE LOT more comfortable. Once you have picked the right size, style, & material & you’ve worn them for a little while, they feel so comfortable that you hardly even feel, if at all.
I don't mean to discuss anyone, but for me, a huge reason why I love them so much is because they help prevent what I call “SBS” (Sticky Balls Syndrome), which is the sticky feeling that comes from your sweaty scrotum touching your inner thighs. I think that that sticky sensation is VERY uncomfortable! With the right thongs, you don't suffer from SBS. I don't know how most guys can live with SBS. I guess they don’t know any better. I didn’t & I would still be in the dark it if wasn’t for an ex-girlfriend who worked at Frederick’s of Hollywood. She literally made me wear them for a couple of weeks to try them out; but that‘s a different story. All I can say is that once you go with no SBS for a while, you never want to go back to it.
Some people feel that men shouldn't wear thongs, but I don't see why. People put too much importance on underwear. I guess that some people are homophobic & think that men who wear thongs are gay or feminine, as if the type of underwear you wear makes you more or less of a man. Dhaaa! I don’t suffer from homophobia & I’m VERY secured about my masculinity & sexuality to worry about little stuff like that.
Ironically, there's a western gay bar by my home, you should see some of the guys that go in & out of that place. Some look gay (totally feminine), some look like the average guy walking down the street, and quite a few look super, and I mean SUPER DUPER macho tough guys wearing western outfits. I’m not talking about some skinny guys, I’m talking about some well build guys. The build that you’d expect on a football player, construction worker, or cop. They look totally, 100%, MANLY MEN…and yet, they are gay! Clothes, in particular underwear, DO NOT make or break a man!
