At the mention of “mens underwear” most people picture white briefs, old-fashioned long-johns, or perhaps some boxers with a fun pattern on them. When some people think of men’s thong underwear, in some cases it may elicit a grown quickly followed by an “eeeewwww”. Or for others there is perhaps an opposite effect as some men and women consider men’s thongs to be very attractive. While thongs can be a polarizing issue, men’s underwear should not be dismissed so flippantly.
Those who are against thongs:
Those who are adamantly against men’s thong underwear believe that thongs should be reserved for women. The skimpy underwear is revealing, leaving the entire backside exposed. Some people, and some women, consider the look to be sexy, but few people consider such underwear to be masculine. The truly skeptical consider men’s thong underwear to be solely a gay thing. Because the underwear is not considered to be effeminate, many think that the men who wear such garments are gay or still “in the closet”.
Masculine underwear is often thought to include boxers or boxer briefs because men’s bodies simply aren’t built to fit into a thong. The manly areas covered by men’s underwear are a little more complicated than those needing to be covered by women’s underwear, hence the idea that skimpy thongs should be reserved for women’s wear alone.
For those further arguing the idea that men should not wear thongs, they will say that a man in a thong just looks plain silly. As mentioned before, some think men’s thongs to mean the man is gay, but others just can’t imagine any man (gay or straight) in a thong for any reason other than a gag joke.
Those who are for men’s thongs: Mens underwear
People arguing in defense of men in thongs say there is no reason men can’t wear any underwear they choose, that thongs are no less manly than any other underwear considered “acceptable” by all. While thongs may be revealing, they are cooler and feel free, particularly during the summer.
Women wear thongs designed for women, and men should be able to wear thong underwear designed for men. Because of that, they can enjoy wearing their men’s underwear without questioning their sexual orientation. For some, their female significant other is who introduced them to the idea of a thong for themselves.
There are many men who find that thongs have a nicer fit than boxers or briefs as thongs never have uncomfortable bunching. A well-made men’s thong can also be more comfortable than traditional men’s underwear because it provides a lot of support and coverage in the front, exactly where men need it. Because of the appropriate coverage in the front, combined with minimal fabric elsewhere, once men get used to the idea and feel, thongs are actually nicer underwear.
Regardless of whether you are repulsed, entertained, intrigued, or excited to see men in thong underwear, everyone can agree that thong men’s underwear is around to stay. And even those that find men in thongs so nauseating, they are usually glad there is at least underwear being worn!
