The thong is a garment generally worn as either underwear or as a swimsuit in some countries. It may also be worn for traditional ceremonies or competitions, such as sumo wrestling. Viewed from the front, the thong typically resembles a bikini bottom, but at the back the material is reduced to a minimum.

Thongs can be a very polarizing underwear type for a lot of men. Some condemn them as too feminine or uncomfortable and others will defend them as the best underwear in the world. I think there’s room for all types of underwear and it’s best to maintain a “to each his own” mindset but there are definitely times where there is a majority group consensus and the question becomes, do you go against the majority rule, and if so, how?

While thongs for men used to have a stigma in society, they have now become a lot more mainstream and acceptable.  Gone are the days when they were relegated to the realm of male strippers and could only be found in sex shops.  Now you can pick up men’s thongs made by mainstream brands like Jockey, 2(x)ist, or Calvin Klein at stores like Target or Macy’s.  So while I’m not suggesting you be like my friend and wear a thong every day, why not give them a try if you haven’t already?  


 Although I don’t have a specific survey to reference, I think we can take it as a solid assumption that most guys are not wearing thongs to work either in an office or most other types of employment environments. Although thongs for men have made some advances over the years with a broad variety available for purchase now compared to 10 years ago, they are still not nearly as common (particularly at work) as the more traditional underwear cuts e.g. boxers, boxer-briefs and briefs. There seems to be a connotation of “taboo” sexuality or inappropriateness about guys wearing thongs that persists throughout society and that of course carries over into the office .
