Thongs aren’t just for the ladies anymore and I was bound and determined to prove it. I set out a couple months back to look for my very first male thong. At first, all I wanted to use it for was to maximize the amount of skin I could get tanned while laying in a tanning bed, but it soon became more. It became a quest to find something that was comfortable and didn’t feel like I was wearing dental floss.
I am such a huge fan of Undergear, both their website and their print catalog, that I am sure the mail man asks wonders things every time he drops it in my mailbox. Naturally, that is where I started my search. I had seen plenty of different styles, colors and fabrics. Now all I had to do was figure out what exactly I needed.
The first thing I noticed was the range of male thongs that fall into the intimate apparel category. If you are looking for something that is more than “just a little sexy”, then your options are as broad as your imagination can take you. I was looking for something that wasn’t going to fall apart the first time I washed it. I continued to look at other alternatives. I noticed that the number of designer brands, adding a thong or g-string to their collections, was growing with every catalog I received.
As I was flipping through the pages, I saw a fairly new brand of underwear that UnderGear started carrying a few months before. Clever is the brand and their Basic Thong instantly caught my attention. It has a one inch waistband and comes in some fun colors. It was also inexpensive. That is something that definitely caught my eye. Since this was my first thong purchase, I didn’t want to be out a ton of money if I didn’t like it. I ordered it in lime green and size medium, which is the same size undies I wear.
When the thong arrived, I tried it on. I wasn’t impressed at all and was disappointed. Not to have been taken advantage of by my mild obsession with new undies, I decided to give it another shot during one my many trips to the tanning bed. After I had worn it for my 10 min tan time, I got up and realized that after a few short minutes. I didn’t notice it at all. I continued to wear it when I went to the tanning bed. This thong held up great, and was perfect for my short 10 min sessions in the tanning bed.
After a few weeks had gone by, it was no big deal and the thong fit didn’t bother me at all. I thought I would take it one step further and try it for everyday wear. I decided one morning that I was going to wear it to work. I slipped it on, took a deep breath, and off I went. I was amazed at how well it felt for all day wear. I was afraid I would find myself constantly picking at my butt, but it stayed in place and wasn’t intrusive in the slightest bit. I have worn the thong many times since then and haven’t looked back.
The biggest challenge I faced with was finding the thong that interested me.. Thongs come in many different cuts and they all wear differently. Look around and find something that is exactly what you are looking for or needing for the perfect fit. Don’t just settle on one. Many underwear designers offer thongs. Clever was a new brand for me. Find your favorite brand and see what they have to offer. Since my thong purchase, I have given Clever much more business!
Thongs aren’t just for the ladies. In fact, guys that are gay, straight, and otherwise, are jumping on the male thong bandwagon. It is one of the fastest growing trends in male underwear today! Isn’t it about time you open up your mind to something new! I did and am a fan for life!
