Thongs: Not to be Feared


Let’s get right in the middle of it, some men love thongs, and others are terrified of them. Let's start by covering the different styles of thongs, and then we can dive into why some men might be terrified of a tiny piece of cloth. 

First, let's break down the different types of thongs. Your traditional thong has a 3/4” to 1” back strap. These are my personal favorite because they offer a little more fabric that tends to tickle all the right spots. Next in line, you have the G-String. These are for the minimalist amongst us. They have a 1/4”-ish strap and usually the same thickness for the waistband. These are for when you want to cover the twig and berries, and that's about it. The next style I will mention, some won't lump into the thong category. The Brazilian-backed brief. These, to me, are entry-level thongs. They offer some coverage but still shape and draw attention to your glutes. Say for instance, The Lace Brazil Brief (Z291). This brief fits similar to a thong but has more coverage and helps work around the typical male excuses about wearing thongs. 

Speaking of excuses, let's dive into a few of them. There is always the age-old excuse, “why would you want something between your cheeks all day?” I can tell you that it will go one of a few ways. One, that string or strip (depending on which style of thong you prefer) runs right over an erogenous zone. A little arousal on your part can now turn your underwear into “funderwear”. Now, you shift in your seat and get a little more aroused. 

The Glossy Satin V-String Thong.

Another way it could go is that thin little strip of fabric settles in, and you don't even know it's there. It turns out to be the most comfortable pair of underwear you have ever worn, and you won't want to wear anything else. 

There is also the third option that I mentioned earlier, which is the Brazilian Brief. This particular undergarment will give you a hint of the tease of a thong without feeling like something is stuck between your cheeks. 

The second excuse is, “I can't wear a thong, I bend over a lot at work, and I might whale tale.” Yes, this is always a possibility. I have a couple of solutions, wear an undershirt and ensure it is well tucked in. Option two, grab one of Body Aware’s comfy bodysuits to wear over it. Then you will be bathed in double the luxurious fabrics. This excuse is one that I have used myself. It is scary knowing that you could be found out, that, oh no, you wear risque underwear. I have learned to embrace the fear, it's kind of exciting to know someone might see. Maybe they will ask, and I can enlighten them about the pleasure of wearing underwear outside the norm. 

The last excuse I want to cover is “I don’t have very much going on down there. Why even bother?” I can wave that excuse away quickly with, “Protect your sensitive area.” Even though there isn't much on the back of the underwear, there is a wonderful pouch to cradle and protect your intimate parts. Personally, for me, having the smooth, supple fabric holding the family jewels all day helps keep me protected and doesn't get them pinched or bound up. 

The Chevron Triangle Thong.

Ultimately, there is no excuse not to try out a thong. They are very comfortable, aren’t bulky, and keep you cool on a hard day of work. So be bold, be daring, be Body Aware, and try out a thong. 

I hope you have enjoyed this read. I'd love to hear about how you started wearing thongs, if you’ve ever been “caught,” and how you handled it. Let's fill up that comment section with stories and encouragement for men to step out and try the underwear most men think is awkward.




I was putting my shoes on one time and had a lot of stuff in my pocket, this made my pants slide down a little bit. Without realizing it my bright pink thong was showing and my sister in law had just come out of the bathroom. She noticed my thong and said loudly “Oh my gosh are you wearing a thong?!” and gave me a wedgie. Although this might have been embarrassing for some, it was exciting for me. I was confident, laughed, and just said yes I am and that I only wear men’s thongs. She said that she didn’t know I wore thongs and I told her that I had been wearing men’s thongs for years. She said that she thought thongs were uncomfortable and gave me props that I found them comfortable and liked them. We even talked about where I buy men’s thongs, how much they cost, how I got into them, and who knows that I wear thongs. Since then she’ll joke around with me when she see’s my whale tail but always shows her support and acceptance of me being myself.

First off, I love the encouragement to share how we’ve been caught wearing a thong and how those instances can be really exciting for someone. As someone who has been wearing thongs since I was a kid, the thought of another male or even a woman seeing your thong peak out can be really scary. There’s this idea that wearing thongs as a man is not “masculine” or “manly” that is really problematic and ultimately not true. I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t care if my thong is peaking out and actually enjoy when people see it. Having conversations about why I’m wearing a thong and about men wearing thongs is really exciting. It helps us get rid of stigma and show people that men can wear thongs and be confident/masculine while doing so. Thongs are very comfortable and they make me feel very sexy, especially in moments when I’ve been caught. I’ll be adding some stories below in separate comments :).

Have been wearing thongs & G-strings as underwear and beach wear for over 40 years. Love the feel, freedom and the tan line. They are not only comfortable but very sexy. Love to show them off when I get the chance. I probably have over 400 pair to show off in.

PLEASE fix the website so we can see the actual photo of the item? You have to scroll up and down to see the product. No one else’s website is like this. The image doesn’t fit on the screen. This is crazy annoying and makes me want to shop somewhere else.
BodyAware replies: Joey, thank you for letting us know you are having difficulty viewing the website. Can you tell me where you are seeing this fault on the photos, is it the blog or an actual product for sale? If its a product, can you give me an example so I can check, or is it every product?

I love hearing all of your opinions And stories. I have just recently purchased a gossamer string and let me tell you…… it is the most comfortable thong I own and will be purchasing more.
What other topics would you all like to talk about? What do you want to know more about? I want to right for you and engage with you. Comment and let me know.

I always wondered why my last girlfriend always looked so damn comfy just lazing about on her bed in a thong and t shirt. Or more like, I was ENVIOUS. And after being introduced to this website and it’s marvelous selection of thongs, I can say I was right to be envious; and now, no longer. Truly, I have never known real comfort before thongs came into my life. All the comfort and cheeky thrill of going commando, but my jewels stay securely in place, lovingly embraced in fabrics once reserved for royalty. I feel sexy, confident, and my ass has never looked better. 😏 Get you a thong, and embrace SASSculinity!

I have been wearing things for a long time now, and they are my preferred underwear of choice! I absolutely love the fit and feel, and my wife loves them on me. Even if others see that I’m wearing them, that’s okay because I am super confident in my choice of underwear. Love g strings and things with metallic or satin!!

Josh September 28, 2022

I have worn thongs and g strings for many years. They are, very comfortable to wear and, also look very good and sexy too. Body aware have produced some very nice see through lace strings and thongs. These are my particular favorites. Lace is tantalizingly sexy in what it reveals. This will appeal to some, but not others. Styles and materials differ. Be reassured, thongs and strings are delightful in every respect. Be bold and enjoy the moments.

There is another excuse too, which is mostly wishful thinking of men. The excuse is " I’m packing too much, or I’m well endowed". Well granted, there are some thongs that don’t provide much room in the front, for those of us who are well endowed, but I have found numerous thongs that stretch to accommodate, and have plenty of room if not more than enough. Wishful thinking people.

Love me a good thong and also know when to wear them. They are very sexy and do provide a level of sexiness to your traditional day. I would not wear on a construction site or places where bending over are frequent, i think it might be uncomfortable if frequent bending was required. I would wear to the office and explain to my colleagues if caught with the whale tale that they are great undergarments. As for the different styles, try them all and find what you like. I happen to like them all but have a preference for the G string. So sexy!

Scott September 28, 2022

Never been caught, except by my wife! 😉. I love wearing a thong for all the reasons Sam mentions above, but mostly because they make me feel confident and hug me like someone is cupping me all day long!
