The thong is believed to be one of the earliest forms of human clothing and is also thought to have been worn mostly or exclusively by men. The thong was first worn nearly 75,000 years ago. Many tribal peoples, such as some of the Khoisan people of southern Africa, wore thongs for many centuries. Much like the Japanese fundoshi, these early garments were made with the male genitalia in mind. According to fashion historians, the first public appearance of the thong in the United States was at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. This resulted from Fiorello LaGuardia, the Mayor of New York City, ordering the city’s nude dancers to cover themselves.

Thongs and G-strings are surprisingly comfortable without any extra fabric to bunch up in unpleasant places like between your legs or in your ass crack (just the non-moving thin strip that starts there). It’s like going commando except without your tender bits rubbing on something uncomfortable, stray hairs getting caught in your zipper, or underwear stains on your outerwear. For vanity my wife thinks I look good in a thong, they make my package look bigger, and they don’t hide the muscle definition in my glutes and quads.

I have no idea why more men don’t wear thongs. I started wearing them five years ago and realised they were more comfortable than any other form of underwear – all of the support with none of the bulk. On a hot day under shorts they are amazing. Another benefit is that my wife like me in them and frequently greets me from work by sticking her hand down my trousers to see which thong I’m wearing that day. If you are male and haven’t tried a thong yet, do it. You may very well not go back!

I’m a married man who likes to wear thongs but my wife doesn’t like me wearing them. What do other women think of this and should I keep wearing them or not?
