Thonging in Las Vegas with Ryan
My First Trip to Vegas…
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right? Except that I want to make sure you all know how thong friendly Las Vegas is! I recently stayed at The Flamingo resort on the Las Vegas strip, and it has got to be one of the most positive thong experiences I have ever had. I stayed a week at the Flamingo and visited both of its swimming pools where I wore a thong without incident.
I started out in Vegas on a Sunday afternoon with my wife by visiting the beach club pool at the Flamingo. The Beach Club pool is a “family” oriented pool only open to hotel guests. Lounge chairs and cabanas that you can rent surround the pool. There is also a bar on one end where you can buy whatever food and beverages you wish. We found a couple of lounge chairs adjacent to the pool where we set up for the afternoon, spread out our towels, and laid out in the sun. For the first day, I decided to go with a blue Joe Snyder Bulge Tanga. I immediately drew the attention of a couple of older ladies who my wife told me were nudging each other and pointing at us. I guess they’d never seen a man in a thong before. They didn’t make a big fuss or show about it though and quickly went back to their own business.
I visited the same pool the next day by myself, as my wife was off with a friend that lives nearby. I had a similar experience, and this time decided on the same Joe Snyder Bulge Tanga, except this time I wore a hot pink version. I saw a mix of couples, both young and old, and also varying cultures present at the pool. There seemed to be a lot of people visiting from other countries, which could have contributed to the lax attitude towards my choice of swimwear. I didn’t see any other guys wearing thongs, but a few were in a speedo or square-cut styles. There were a few of the women around the pool in cheeky and thong styles. Everyone I spoke to was very friendly, and nobody seemed to mind me sunning and swimming in a thong suit.
I didn’t spend much time at the resort’s other pool, which was called the Go Pool. It is an adult-themed pool centered around the typical Vegas Pool party atmosphere. I did visit once for a couple of hours, and it was quite as expected, plenty of the younger crowd dancing and drinking to the house DJ. It was a little more of a party than I was prepared for! Not that I mind being around others in a thong, but I don’t drink, and didn’t care to be around that atmosphere all afternoon. In the short couple of hours that I was there, I did spot a few guys in small square-cut suits and speedos, plenty of women wearing thong suits, but sadly no guys in thongs. I was the only one.
During my stay in Vegas, I was able to thong a couple of hours each afternoon after I finished my work. I wore a thong exclusively, got in and out of the water, and even wore my thong into the bathroom around other guys. I didn’t hear one single snide comment and also made conversation with others around me by the pool each day. I expect that if you decide to visit Las Vegas, you could run into other male thongers, and may even start a trend yourself if you are bold enough to wear one yourself. Either way, know that male thongs are accepted, and you are not likely to be ridiculed for wearing one anywhere on the strip. My advice is to do what makes you happy, be confident, and don’t succumb to the norm. Be yourself, and if you visit Vegas and wear a thong, or you have in the past, drop a line in the comments and tell us about it!
