Thong Thursday – Why are thongs so popular?
The popularity of thongs is off the chart going into 2017. It’s the new must have style for guys. This is not just for gay guys, the straight guys have take up the thong. Look at our staff TheBottomDrawer, UndiesDude and the Thonged Ginger are all straight guys who LOVE thongs. They are working on a special project for UNB that should be out soon. It’s 100% thong centric, so stay tuned!
Thongs have always had a steady group of guys who loved thongs. Brands such as Joe Snyder and Gregg Homme have always seen loyal thong customers. Now, more brands are starting to make them. Anywhere from regular thongs to erotic ones. New brands that have great thongs are BodyAware and Intymen.
Why do straight guys love thongs?
I have a theory and my guys on the site can def respond to this in another post. I think the pair has had the “gay” label for so long. It’s a pair guys aren’t supposed to wear. They are “women’s underwear. That’s the general population’s view of them. However, there are guys who don’t follow the norms of society and want to feel sexy.
A few years ago, lace started to get big in the men’s market. This allowed guys to not have to conform to the boxers and boxer briefs guys were supposed to wear. Once guys started to discover great underwear, they wanted more undies that feel amazing. I know we have plenty of readers who tried them reluctantly. Thinking it was like a wedgie or going to be uncomfortable. Only to be pleasantly surprised by the fit and comfort of the thong.
It’s great to see guys try new styles in underwear! It doesn’t matter if you are gay/bi/straight. It’s about being who you are and owning it. Our guys own that they love thongs. They are spreading the word about the style. I would love to know why you guys LOVE thongs!
