How I Got Into Thongs

I think I bought my first thong about 15 years ago.  I am not sure what prompted me to get it in the first place, but I would say this first thong did not do too much for me.  I found it tight and restrictive. Regardless, something about it stuck with me. Maybe it felt transgressive, or somehow linked to something sexy, a feeling or look I wanted for myself.  Even after this first disappointment, I continued to buy thongs from time to time over the next few years, usually at discount clothing stores. For those first attempts at wearing thongs, the feeling stayed the same; I wanted to like them more than I did.

And then I discovered the developing industry of men’s underwear online.  These first thongs I purchased were made by very mainstream underwear producers, and were probably made to respond to an emerging trend or to see if they could fish out some new customers.  Regardless, I understand now that they were not made with quality fabrics or with any sensitivity as to how thongs should be shaped, cut, and designed. Once I found some good thongs online, I finally understood what I was looking for in this first attempt.

A good thong should fit snugly, but not be at all binding or restrictive.  They should be made with high-quality fabrics that hold their shape after multiple uses and washings.  And they should be cut and shaped to fit a man’s body. There is also really no denying that recent developments in the fabric industry have brought great new things to underwear.  I think good fabric for thongs is essential – I like them snug but not at all restrictive, with a smooth and sexy fit, but still with a bit of breathability to keep things feeling fresh and clean.

Once I found good thongs, tepidly they became part of my rotation.  I might wear a thong once every 6-8 weeks, and most days I probably wouldn’t even wear them all day.  I think much of this was mental, and it took me some time to overcome the inherent stigma many attach to men in thongs.  But the industry kept growing, thongs kept getting better and better, and I finally understood that wearing them was important self-expression for me.

Today thongs make up about half my underwear draw.  I don’t wear them every day, but I do every week. And I have come to appreciate them for a variety of uses and activities.  The right thong is perfect for yoga, and I love to wear them while sleeping. Both my partner and I find them super sexy, so they are great for date night!

If you’ve never tried a thong, I would love to encourage you to try them out!  They make me feel confident, sexy, and playful. Most of all, with the right fit and fabric, they can be extremely comfortable.  If you are new to wearing thongs, I might suggest you start out with one of my favorites, the Sleek Satin Thong.  And if you are interested in one a little more bold or daring, I am so happy Body Aware brought back the Invisible Shaper Thong – this one is super sexy and minimal, and gives a great lift to your goodies!  I for one am happy to see how pervasive thong underwear for men has become, and hope more and more of us can be bold and confident enough to wear them proudly!

Signing off for now!



I’m 62 and love wearing sex underwear daily I wear most days a G-String but have a whole range of sexy wear would have a hundred item loved the feel of being completely shaved and the feel of them wrapping around me and the feel through my bum. Why men have to feel wrong about wearing it’s a nice feel so why not.

I first started wearing men’s thongs in my 20s and I would buy various kinds from different websites. I liked how they looked on me but a lot of times they were uncomfortable and weren’t practical to wear. No matter how uncomfortable they got, they were always a staple in my drawers and I never completely gave up on them. I eventually somehow found Bodyaware in 2013 and I bought some Gossamer Strings and some Invisible Strut Thongs (now called Invisible Shaper Thongs) and my mind was blown! These thongs were so soft and sensual feeling, comfortable, and I felt very sexy in them. At last I’d found a men’s thong that I could wear on a daily basis and not get irritated. That day changed my life. I’m still a big fan of Bodyaware today, and also I wear a thong everyday. Work, gym, lounge, sleep, and everything in between. I wouldn’t wanna wear anything else to be honest. I feel free and liberated and I love the fact it’s a very unique way of representing myself and my body. Give thongs a chance men. You can start with Bodyaware and you really can’t go wrong. You’ll be glad you did!

I first got into wearing thongs when I was pretty young, I’d say around 10 years old. I used to try on my sister and mom’s underwear until one day I tried on one of their thongs. I immediately fell in love! I found them to be super comfortable and they just made me feel good. My mom let me keep a couple of her thongs and I had a couple thongs from some family friends. I was wearing women’s thongs off and on from the age of 10 until my junior year of high school when I wasn’t in PE anymore. I asked my mom if I was old enough to start buying men’s thongs and she bought me some. Ever since then I have mainly wore thongs and started exclusively wearing thongs when I went to college. I’ve been wearing thongs exclusively for 8 years now and am lucky to have a girlfriend of 6 years who wears thongs with me. We both love wearing thongs and don’t want each other to wear any other type of underwear. I am lucky to have friends and family both female and male who know I wear thongs and support me. My next venture is to wear thong swimsuits exclusively. I have worn a thong swimsuit at a family friends pool and on a cruise but am trying to make it a regular thing. Wish me luck!

I liked wearing bikini underwear when I was younger teenager around 15. My mom never said anything to me when she washed clothes. So when Xmas came around I had a present sitting in my room with a note saying to try them on. Was a pack of Joe Boxer bikini briefs and a pack of thongs. It kind of embarrassed me but I didn’t shy away from wearing them. I only wore the thongs on weekends. But the bikinis were everyday wear. During high school, I wore thongs to school during my junior and senior years because I didn’t have gym. I wear thongs occasionally now. Back to wearing bikini briefs.

I started wearing thongs when I was 13. I would always see my mom wearing one, and was curious. From 13-16 I wore my moms thongs all the time. Then once I could drive I ended up buying my own. Now I’m 39 and still wear them 90% of the time.

Brian January 31, 2023

I am a 62 year old grandfather! I work out 4 times a week and have a big package! I started wearing G-strings and thongs about 5 years ago! It was at this time I started to groom my pubic area! I love the feel of a thong or G String! When I am with a partner it excites me to have them stare! I feel that wearing them gives you confidence that shows! I recommend you try!

I’ve been wearing thongs for 22 years. It started out by losing a bet to my girlfriend and had to wear hers everyday for a month. The first week was awfull. I found them very uncomfortable. She said they take some getting use to but then I’d love them. Week 2 I was going nuts trying to get use to them but I had to honor my losing the bet. Week 3 I began to think they’re not so bad but would be glad to get back into my boxers. Week 4 I realized just how comfy and supportive they were. At last the 30 days were up and I got my boxers back but she left some of the thongs in my drawer. After 2 days back in my boxers I went back to the thongs. I missed just how comfy they were and started wearing them again almost every day. That year for Christmas she bought me my own collection of mens thongs and I’ve never looked back. BA satin is now my favorite and I have trouble keeping her out of my thong drawer now. lol

I got my first pack of thongs in high school. Eventually started wearing higher quality brands. A lot of guys are scared to wear thongs. Whether they think they’ll be uncomfortable or think they’ll get teased. Once you give them a few trys and maybe try a few different kinds, they really end up being a great option to wear. They support really well, they’re comfortable, they feel sexy. I love them. They’re apart of my rotation now

I first wore a thong when I was about 12. My next door friend took one of his sister’s thongs and showed me. He let me keep them for days at a time and I would wear them. It wasn’t until my late teens and early adult life where I started buying my own thongs that were made for men. I would buy them online since really no stores carried them. I discovered xdress and had no idea there were feminine thongs for men. Im 24 now, and I married the girl I’ve been since I was 16. She doesn’t mind my thongs so I’m glad it’s worked out, cuz there are a ton of girls who would freak out if there boyfriend or husband wore thongs, especially feminine ones. Don’t let people stop you from wearing your thongs guys!!!

JD July 23, 2022

I fell in love with thong at a young age! I was 13 when I got my first thong at local department store. Of course that’s after I begged my grandparents for it and they gave in and bought for me. The rest is history now and that’s all I wear.

Stephen May 02, 2022

I bought my first thong when I was 16. I bought the Joe Boxer brand from K-mart. That started my obsession with male thongs. I wore them on and off throughout high school. When I went to college I really dove into wearing thongs 4-5 times a week. I’ve been wearing them regularly for over 17 years now. I’m married and the wife doesn’t mind one bit. I’m not shy about wearing them either, who cares it’s just underwear. Wear whatever makes you happy.

Chase Johnson April 19, 2022

For many years I’ve almost exclusively worn thongs. I have a couple of tanga briefs, but rarely wear anything so big. The roots of my love of minimal underwear and swimwear go all the way back to college in the late 80’s when men’s fashion was rapidly changing, and brief underwear became more fashionable. I liked the tanga style and started to wear those for both underwear and swimwear. As boxers and boxer briefs became the norm I went the other way, choosing tangas and thongs wherever I could buy them, When internet shopping exploded and choices widened I found I could buy a variety of thong underwear styles and fabrics, and really haven’t looked back. I also wear thong swimsuits to the beach and pool on holiday, and love having a thong tan line! I only opt for a brief-style suit for public pool swims.

I start to wear thong when I was 19 I only have 5 pairs of thongs

Javier December 01, 2021

I love wearing thongs! I bought my first pack when I was 19, and even though they were the cheap kind I love them. I immediately went online and purchased 2 or 3 thongs from bodyaware. 10 years later, I wear thongs almost every day of the week. Partner loves em!

Eric October 15, 2021

I have only a few thongs but I don’t often choose to wear them, not sure why. Haven’t found them particularly comfy but they sure make me feel sexy.

Adam October 05, 2021

I first got into thongs 21 years ago & have never looked back, its all I carry in my underwear draw. I always use to wear briefs before, but when men’s thongs started to come onto the market I had a real desire to try one & I loved it, unrestrictive, feels so free, but holds so firmly. In the early days of wearing them, it gave me a kind of authority, but yet felt a little taboo knowing what I was wearing under suit or jeans. Now I wear them largely without thinking about it & there’s no other underwear I’d consider. What still can be exciting though is choosing my underwear to go under a dinner suit or when I’m selecting my underwear to go away, I always take twice as many as I need so I have choice, for what ever occasion might arise. All I can say to those who’ve not, please try one, its a new lease of life.

I had intended to buy a jock strap when I went in for my vasectomy but picked up a thong instead unknowingly. Imagine my surprise when I took it out of the box in the doctor’s office. Too late to do anything at that point!! After the initial shock wore off, and after a long weekend of getting intimate with a bag of peas, I’ve worn nothing else since, and have nothing else but thongs for underwear and swimwear. The perfect mix of support without being restrictive, no panty line or bunching up.

Erich July 04, 2021

Enjoyed reading this thread about other men that like wearing thongs and g-strings. I had several back in the 90s and had a few put away. After many years, I tried them on and loved how they felt. Of course, they were too small so I ended up buying some new ones and have been wearing a g-string all day every day. I love how they feel even when they’re a little snug. I guess I like things that are considered taboo!

Marc June 17, 2021

I love wearing a thong. In the 90’s I bought my first 4 pack of thongs in high school and craved wearing them 24/7 but couldn’t always pull it off. Presently, I don’t own any underwear that isn’t a thong or g string. Wearing thongs is an important part of my own self expression and identity, I enjoy that ultra naked feel under jeans or just lounging on the couch. I like the way they look.
Thanks for making them for us guys

My feelings for “thongs” are just a little different. For a while, while at work, I had to wear a jump-suite with no pockets on the rear. Because I have always worn women’s nylon panties, this was no longer possible because my panty lines would be visible.
So I had no choice but to try a thong. At first, I said no way! However, I found that with a thong, the panty line was “no-more”! It took a while to get used to it and after a while, it was not a ptoblem.
I no longer have to wear that uniform so of course, thongs are not in my panty drawer. Just not for me.
I will say that I LOVE the color of the thong the model is wearing in the above photo…lavender!! I would buy that thong just for the color alone!
By the way, it was good to read that Tom was buying his first thong from the Regency Square catalog at the age of 14. I too, used to but sexy underwear from them as well when I was younger.

Ron December 13, 2020

To thong or not to thong? Stupid question! Thong away! The Rip Stop Thing in yellow is a show stopper! The fit is great and my partner knows there will be some lovin’ that night when I put it on! All manties have a place and a time and the thong, to me, means sexuality. Just make sure to manscape properly before! No need for the fur to be popping out of the front or have too much fuzz in the back!

Scott August 08, 2020

A good thing is hard to find but the Rip Stop is a good one, as is the glossy satin thong that just came out! I am curious about the Uni-string model in the erotic section. Has anyone tried it? I imagine that could be super cool to wear under the work clothes. The Rip Stop is also a good swim option but I have not been brave enough to venture down that road just yet! Maybe with time! Body Aware selection is always great!

Scott August 08, 2020

I’ve been wearing thongs for years every time I would puchase one they were two loose or two tight .i like a high top and it’s hard to find them .how do you know what size to purchase and what material to buy .if any body can help feel free to email me

Marc Davidman May 28, 2020

I started to wear thongs in high school when I was in 10th grade my step-sister said my Bikini underwear looked like panties because she found them In the dryer she then came back and fired two thongs at me a brown one and a white one and said if you like panties so much try these thongs she said she just bought a pack of thongs and she gave them to me because she did not like the colors of them. I later put them on and I have fell in love with them.Greek god briefs and thongs fill My undies drawer and to this day 7 years later I still have the brown thong the white one was left at my boyfriends house at the time. So that’s how I got into thongs:)/

Adam J May 26, 2020

I have worn thongs for over 25 years and find them so comfortable and sexy to wear. I have no hang ups about wearing thongs, even on the beach. My partner likes me in it even though he is not a wearer himself. My favourite from BA are the rare earth series, of which I have several but they are so pricey! 😕. They look good, are comfortable and I don’t feel like I am wearing any underwear at all. I always wear them with a c-ring underneath and that enhances the experience and bulge – so I’m told of the latter!
