I guess I fall in the lucky category.  My wife is a major thonger.  She only owns g-string and thong underwear and her swimsuits are 

      10 wicked weasel g-strings
       5  wicked weasel thongs
       1  brazilian made rio back (her most conservative suit for times when backless is unacceptable)

She has thonged on public beaches where she is the only women in a backless suit, most notibly in atlantic city, NJ and Osterman beach in chicago.  When we go to south beach or gunnison beach in NJ, she only wears a G bottom and no top.

Last time we were in miami she walked from our spot in front of the delano all the way down to south point in just a wicked weasel 456 white satin sheer g-string bottom and matching small triangle top.

My question is this....do you think this makes it easier and more acceptable for me to thong as well?

When I am thonging, 95% of the time she is thonging too. 

Occasionally, I will wear a speedo style bikini, if it is very obvious that make thonging is not acceptable (REally the only time this happens in in atlantic city,  often in the summer you get roving bands of urban teens who are looking for trouble.  Even though I am a former professional kickboxer, i dont need the hassle).

My wife is adorable.  SHe is 5 feet tall, 97 lbs with nice curves and exceptional muscle tone.  SHe looks super hot in her weasels. 

Do you think that it makes it more acceptable for me to be in a thong if I am sitting next to a cute little woman in micro swimwear as well?

 I posted someplace else that the perception of being with a woman gives other people a sense about  you as being "normal" (of course some people here object to the word 'normal' but take it to mean OK, or average, or safe, or acceptable), even if you're wearing a thong. If she's OK with it, then it must be OK. She doesn't have to be in a thong or even be good looking; but it helps a lot if she does!

While rollerblading through Venice Beach in a thong,  I attracted a lot more attention alone than when I rollerbladed in a thong with an attractive woman also in a thong!

Americans goof on Speedos, mainly because those who wear them they feel they ought not to. But Europeans are OK with Speedos no matter what the wearer looks like in them. Why the difference? Because the Europeans are used to seeing men in tight fitting swimwear. By extension this means that if more people wear thongs to the beach, then the more acceptable they will become. Even if you're all alone.

quoting Stanpuppy : "My wife is adorable.  SHe is 5 feet tall, 97 lbs with nice curves and exceptional muscle tone.  SHe looks super hot in her weasels." 

Your wife is same weight and size as my wife.

And hey....go for it. I think having the woman in public also stops a few rednecks from making fools of themselves too. Generally no one with half a brain wants to make a nice woman feel uncomfortable when she is out and about enjoying herself and that includes harrassing her partner. So its probably true in public that the woman in this case is a + when thonging.

I'm always more comfortable thonging or stringing when my wife is with me.  Tells the world I'm normal, just more bold and daring than most.  I dislike being perceived as a weirdo, and a woman's presence helps.

I am more confident thonging when accompanied by my wife.

However, if my wife is in thong too, there is a lot of young men who came very closed to us and disturb us. They come by to look at my wife, and I find this unsettling.  On the other hand, when my wife is in a more conventional bikini the young men don't come to look at us and I'm more comfortable.

Last summer, a young women came and set up very close to us on the beach, (she could touch our towel). There was a lot of space everywhere but she preferred to be close to the couple with the man in thong. She didn't hesitate to look with envy at my butt. My wife was a little bit uncomfortable but  I loved this situation.

When you are accompanied by a woman, you are considered "normal" and not gay.

No doubt about it all that I am far more comfortable wearing a thong around my former wife and girlfriends.  I think it is attractive and beautiful to see a well built couple wearing thongs.  I ljust moved to South Beach and have not seen it as much as I used to when I vacationed there.  I am not sure why this is.  Admittedly, I tend to be a bit nervous about wearing a thong when I am by myself.  I was married for 15 years and only once during that marriage did my ex and I wear thongs on South Beach.  I was ashamed in that it was usually only foreign women (mostly German) who would comment "on how great she and I looked together".  What is amazing to me these days though is that in the past guys who wore thongs were usually brandished as being gay.  I have nothing at all against gay but the fact is is that I am straight.  What is amazing though is that today, when I wear a thong I am stunned at the amount of awesome female attention I attract.  Not surprisingly, most of the attention comes from Hispanic or European women.  I gotta tell you "that a guy with a good body in a thong can definitely get a date on that beach".  Not sure if this is indegenous to South Beach or not?  Girls can be very forward and aggressive down there when I put on a skinz G.  I have to admit that at my ripe old age of 43 I am getting a hearty chuckle out of all of this.

Shape1.  Wife and i are planning a trip to Sobe this april.  How is the thong scene down there for men these days?  Last time we were there (last year) I was the only guy in a thong for the entire 5 days.  The female scene was a little better (especially down around 5th st. where there were alot of latin ladies in thong, but in general, I did not note alot of thongs.  TOpless was far more prevalent.

I have found the same to be true for us. I like to thong or wear skimpy bikinis at the beach and I have yet to experience a negative incident on my own but I feel more confident and accepted when I am with my wife who is also in a sexy, skimpy thong. Its unfortunate but I know what you mean.

I would be happy to thong with another guy or group but have not had any luck in meeting guys who didn't think it was a gay thing.

It seems a lot of us find this to be true.  As I said above, I love it when my wife comes along to the beach, even though she prefers I wear a moderate thong rather than my preferred g-string, which affords me the overall tan I desire.

Thonglife, I sometimes happen to meet up with another guy at the beach with whom to spend time, and it's almost as good as having my wife along.  While I'm rarely hassled alone, in company, even male company, I'm no longer concerned about other people on the beach, focusing instead on this temporary acquaintance, swapping tales, taking dips, etc. This is always with guys I'm on the same wavelength with, not the pickup artists who sometimes happen along and make unfounded assumptions about what I'm there for.  I believe I'd be just as comfortable meeting and spending time with a woman, though it's never happened, yet.  In this case, the 'just-happened-to-meet' element would be very important, as I'll never rendezvous with another woman, it's just outside what I think appropriate as a married man, but a casual, temporary acquaintance strikes me as okay. 

This casual type of meeting even happened once last year on a slow day at my favorite beach when we could lie out nude.  It felt so great just to be open and honest about how I enjoy relaxing at the beach when conditions make it possible, without questionable overtones.  In a way, my wife is always with me insofar as my wedding ring is prominently displayed, telling the world where I'm coming from.

My girlfriend and I go to San Onofre beach in Southern California. Since she doesn’t like to go to the nude area we go farther north, usually near trail 3 or 4 and I wear the smallest g-sting I can so long as there aren’t too many small children with hostile parents or teenagers around. She usually wears a small g-string and sometimes goes topless once the lifeguards stop driving up and down the beach.I don’t often go there alone and wear a g-string because I feel that most people will assume that I am gay. Usually when she doesn’t go with me I head to the nude area where this is not an issue.I have however walked from trail 6 to trail 3 and back in just a g-string but it was on a really warm mid-week winter day and almost no one was there.

Lance, interesting observations.  My wife so far hasn't joined me at c/o beaches, yet I feel very comfortable there alone.  In a string or thong among the regular folks I feel much more comfortable if she's with me, which occasionally happens, though she does have to avoid too much sun for health reasons and often passes.  She dislikes nudity, and a c/o beach is rarely availabe to me anyway, so I string alone most times.  Still, doing so openly among the regular folks I find more comfortable than among other thongers in the 'thonging area' at my regular beach, as I think I'm less likely labelled 'one of them', if you know what I mean.  Just a normal guy who prefers to wear less.  I always hope my wedding ring proves the point.

Men are stereotypical. When they see a guy in a thong, they would automatically think that the guy is gay. However when the guy is with a woman, and the woman does not seem to care her man in a thong, then men would think that male thongwearers are not gay. Sry for my bad english.

When I go to the beach after work to take some sun before heading home, I always position myself quite close to a female stranger sunbaking topless or wearing a g-string. By doing this, the attention of beachgoers is not just focused on me. This also makes me a bit brave like going to the water and back in a g-string. If I am alone, I don't think I have the guts to stand and go to the water.

Spent the entire weekend on the jersey shore this weekend wearing only muscleskins MP thongs ( blue on day, purple the next).  Wife was next to me in wicked weasel g-strings ( yellow/snakeskin).  Nary a peep out of anyone the entire time.  Tons of people walked right by us.  Occasionally we would get a second look as thongs/G's are virtually non-existant on the NJ shore we went to (Longport), but i have no doubt that having my wife laying next to me definately helped with the acceptance of my suit

 I guess what some of you write is quite true. A lot of people think thong = weirdo/pervert and are afraid of what the thonger might do (:-)  Being with a woman (in thong or not) makes the thonging stand out less. Maybe because it makes the spectators think that "she doesn't think it's strange, then maybe it isn't that strange".  But as long as there are people who think thong = gay, and the same type of people being upset by or scared of gays we will have this weird phenomenon. I actually try very hard to convince my wife to thong with me. Because even though I don't give a f.. about what other people think. There is always the risk of getting a demeaning shout or comment from someone who is provoked by the thong or who just wants to show off to his friends. It's very easy to pick on someone wearing a thong. We don't usually pull a gun or start a fight.

Even though my wife doesn't wear thong swimwear (just underwear) I feel more relaxed and accepted having her with me. I think you are right when you say, most people that see a man in a thong just assume that he is gay. But actually the opposite seems to be true. Most of the people I know that wear thongs are married. Some of the problem is we are afraid of the reaction we will get in the company of people with more conservative swimwear so we ban together with the majority of men, hence we are assummed to be gay. Also when men go nude with other men around they are assummed to be gay. My wife even commented about a gay beach in Waikiki that someone had told her about. She said the men were standing around naked and in speedos. I asked her how she knew they were gay. And she just said, "come on.....". I wore a thong a the Hilton Hawaiian Village around mixed gender and no one assummed I was gay. Please don't think I am bashing gays because I am not. I just think we need more women thonging with us, or at least laying out with us, for the public to be more accepting. Also I can understand why people want to sunbathe or swim nude but they should be more discreet and understanding of others in that regard.

 While my wife thinks it is strange for me to want to wear a thong she is perfectly comfortable being iwth me on the beach when I am wearing one.  I am more comfortable sharing the experience with her than being alone, as well.  We have had some long discussions about it and she really does not completley understand my actions, ultimately she is fine with it.

I am gay and am totally with thongjockey. I would thong with women or guys - it doesn't matter to me, however if I see a hot man in a thong or skimpy bikini at the beach I will lay out near him and usually get aroused. I think straight thong guys need to understand that if they wear such revealing suits, us gay thong guys are going to stare and sometimes get aroused looking - we're just more obvious than women are. Please take it as a compliment and don't get offended  - I have women come on to me all the time and I take it as a compliment, so the same should be for straight guys getting advances form gay dudes - what's the difference? I applaud all u straight thong guys and your wives. The more people wear them and see them, the more others will accept them and even come to wear them themselves.

I didnt equate it to a gay/straight debate, my observation is that men in thong swimwear are less likely to get hassled (by anybody) if they are accompanied by a women.  If the woman happens to be wearing a thong as well (as is the case with me), all the better.  I think people assume a thonging couple is more acceptable than a man thonging alone.  I dont think a woman thonging alone is judged as critically (although I have personally not seen this alot.  Most women who i have seen thonging either do it in a group with other women, or with a man)

I have found that just about anytime I hang out alone at the beach in a thong or bikini, when it is crowded or not, I will get approached by guys. Usually, they cruise around but sometimes they will strike up a conversation or throw me a compliment. The funny thing is they are almost always wearing board shorts. When I thong with my wife, which is more frequent, no one approaches me but other woman are more likely to sit near us and chat or at least take in the view a little closer. I prefer the later though when guys approach me, I get a kick out of the attention.

I think they are definitely more accepted when accompanied by a women, or with women nearby.  less likely for gays to assume I am the same.my problem is, I go alone to the beach, and the challenge is how to place myself near a woman to avoid harrassment, without her feeling harassed/stalked or whatever?sometimes I have tried the most direct approach - asking them if it's OK to sit near them and explaining why.  Or finding a woman in a thong (or topless), and asking to sit near her as clearly her area is OK with minimal attire.
any other ideas?

 I've found the reserve to be true and I avoid looking like I have other motives: I get to the beach FIRST, or to a more open spot first. Women, it's been my experience, being to set up camp near ME!! At first I was annoyed as I wanted to tan/thong alone without bothering anyone, picking a spot right between two towers so families were more likely to take their children near the lifeguard towers. But the opposite became the fact; I assume it's because a woman, alone, with the nervousness that she may get hit on  feels more comfortable near a man who's chilled and since he's wearing a thong then it must be OK around this beach to wear a thong. I don't know. I gave up years ago worrying what other people think (but it's nice to have company!)

I agree you are more "acceptable" if you are with a woman, regardless of what she is wearing.  In addition to the comments above, I think most guys will not make an ass of themselves in the presence of a woman, so that keeps the more obnoxious ones away.  I also occasionally wear dresses and skirts and I have found the same is true; a group of guys will occasionally harass me, but if there is a woman either in their group or with me they are always much better behaved.

I do believe it is more acceptable to be thonging with a girl, however she is dressed. Not so good if you are with a couple of girls, then you are subject to a little harassment, as you will be thought of as "one of the girls". It does help even more if your partner is well built and good looking, as any thoughts of your sexuality are pretty well put in their place when they see the hottie that likes you in a thong. I think that most guys will not make the effort to harass a couple, pair, as there is witnesses so to speek, if more trouble comes out of it then originally intended. It's easier to harass the one guy that doesn't have anyone to back him up. It is easier for a women to put a man in his place when it comes to situations like this. My wife can tear into a guy and have him walking off feeling like a dumb a@#, but me doing it would just promote a physical battle, that in the end, just isn't worth it.

 I have thronged alone, with a women, with a group of women and every other combination you can think of.  People will often jump to the conclusion you are gay when you are alone, or with a man or group of men.  On the other hand if with a women or group of women the assumption is negated.  I think being with a women suggests you are stright, especially if you are obviously a couple or publicly affectionate.  With a group of women works too, or even better, especially if the women are attractive. 

I have often had women with me quietly correct the wrong assumptions, or stand up for me and tell some stupid guy off.   There is nothing quite as funny, and moral boosting, than having a women say "Oh I can assure you he is not gay" with a Cheshire Cat like grin.  Sometimes all it takes is one of the women coming up and putting her arm around me, and giving the stupid guy a withering look.

Nothing is said when I am with a group of women, or a mixed group.  Maybe stupid guys don't want to appear rude and stupid in-front of the women.  I don't know, it just never seems to come up when I am with a group. I think it is VERY good to be with a group of women.

The same thing happens if I am standing around with a group of locals.  The assumption seems to be that if they think he is ok, then we don't have a problem.

Yes I agree with all of the above comments. I was thonging today at the beach & just down from me was a topless lady. That seemed to help with any unwated attention (if there was to be any) when they saw here they forgot about me.

It wasnt super busy today but busy enough & lots of people had a quick look or even made a point of stopping there walk short to have another look. I got up the courage to go for a swim but did make sure it was when she was watching.

But back to the question.
It does seem to make it less judgemental from others when you are with a lady or near 1, as the emphasis seems to come off you & they are more occupied looking at them. And as we can all say (male & female) You DONT want to make yourself look like a fool in front of the greater sex.
 
Keep on thonging it will become more acceptable & maybe more commen sight as other get up the courage from seeing us enjoying ourselfs !!!

As a lone guy, I  can attest that I seem to catch more grief than men who are with a female companion.  A few years ago, I was in Cancun tanning in a thong, classic cut with one inch sides, royal blue, lined, completely opaque.  I pulled my chair out of the thoroughfare to avoid the masses but still heard some people make negative/homophobic comments as they went buy.  No peddlers came up to me (a positive side effect), and no one struck up a conversation with me during my time there.  A few hours later, a man and his wife came and set up directly in front of me. The man stripped down to a thong, and the woman removed her top. Shortly thereafter, peddlers arrived, someone from the hotel spa came up to ask them about a massage, and I never heard any negative comments from people passing by.

When I'm alone at Gunnison and I leave the beach to leave, I wear a very small g string back to the car. If I walk alone I get a lot of looks- no comments but looks. If I'm walking with a woman, regardless of what she is wearing, the looks are fewer than if I'm alone.

I would say this is definitely true in most places - have been to a few at the right time when and where nobody cares.In ost of Brighton, being thought of as gay is not a problem, being thought of as weird can be (Brighton may be liberal, but it is not London or NYC - hardly anywhere provincial is).With a woman or girl, or several girls, people just assume you are part of a "different" couple or group, rather than weird.Certainly a lot safer.I have also had friends make negative comments about a man in a speedo or thong, BUT if they see a man dressed so with a girl in similar attire, they comment on the girl and the lucky man.

I feel more confident when I'm in a thong at the beach with a woman at my side. And I will also wear my gear a shade smaller then otherwise. At least it takes away the suggestion of being gay. In Holland I went to the beach to meet a friend. I stripped down to a thong at the beach and started walking to her spot. Close to her spot were a few guys and one started to make stupid remarks. His buddies joined in but the moment I layed out next to her, it stopped and they did not gave me any notice after that. Not even when I walked close to them on the way to the water.
One day she was at the beach with a friend. That friend was thought to be very conservative so my friend asked if I could skip wearing a thong. When I arrived I changed into a thong and I had a very nice conversation about skimpy swimwear with that conservative friend. Later that summer a few other friends started to go to the beach and stayed with us. I was speaking of my harem and I think they liked it to be around a guy with skimpy swimgear. They did not switched to thongs but they wore gear as skimpy as they dared.

I think the absolute best way to go (if you can swing it) is to go with a group of girls who are very skantily dressed.  I see this at Gunnison alot....some guy (typically a gay friend) is wearing a micro suit and her is surrounded by 4 or 5 topless girls in thongs.   Absolutely nobody give any consideration to what the guy is wearing...they just think it is great that he has such wonderful company

 Hi All,
yes, if a man is accompanied by a girl or woman, especially if they are in a thong bikini, it is definitely more accepted.my ex-boyfriend used to, with my encouragement, wear a thong on most beaches with me.i always wear a thong, but would never have pushed him to wear one when I wasn't there - though he did sometimes wear it on his own.Also, I would normally really encourage him to wear a thong with me, but occasionally I'd suggest he did not - why make him feel uncomfortable and put him off wearing one?I know that anywhere in Europe, I can wear a thong bikini, and a man can't always, but such is life and gradually it is changing for the better :)

I would answer yes women helps having around you. Only because others couples feel more comfortable with you because they don't feel your watching them but preoccupied with whom your with. Noticed on nude beach couples feel single guy alone maybe someone to look out for in a not good way. 
Not always you find people ignoring a man in a thong when he's together with a women. One situation I observed was a man in white g-string flying a kite on a family beach not to crowded. As he and the wife who wore a regular full bottom bikini were to sit down and rest the kite down I heard some nasty comments. First off couple girls took out there phone and took picture of the guy from the back giggling laughing without his knowledge. Secondly heard loudly sure everyone could hear even the thong guy someone saying, "feel sorry for the women to be with a guy like him, so embarrassing for her". "can you imagine being married to him" laughing giggling..etc..

So not always being with women will make male thonging acceptable to others without ridicule. If your alone they just assume to leave you alone and stay away because you can frighten people with wearing a thong believe it or not. Some people think your weird and assume you unstable. Stupid as it sounds but it's what women usually think after they laugh seeing a man in a thong.

 I've thonged with multiple girlfriends and it is  without a doubt easier to go anywhere with them. I've thonged in the most crowded places and got lots of looks but no one seems to care. Just thumbs up!

Thongs on men definitely are more socially acceptable when worn in the company of women. Or even other men. It's all about social influence. If you're with other people, it shows that other people in your group can accept what you're wearing. And if other people can accept it, then it mitigates whatever negative feelings a bystander might otherwise have. It's kind of like how in a job interview, people like candidates that are married. Shows that someone else can stand the guy. You know? Overall, it's a small effect. Going in a group won't work miracles, but it helps.

 In Ohio, if you are a woman, you are accepted about the same regardless of who is with you or what you wear.  If you are a man, just being with others (any others) makes you more accepted.  Even hanging out with another guy who wears board shorts will help.  (I think this is because people figure if a man's friends accept him in a thong, then he isn't some sort of pervert.)  Being in a larger group will help.  Being with a woman or lots of women helps, if others in the group also wear thongs, it helps even more.

 I think this was a fair comment years ago.
Male friends of mine always used to say they'd feel more comfortable wearing their thong swimwear when they were in a mixed group rather than on their own or just a group of males as there was a stigma regarding thong wearing being for the gay community.
Me and my husband are still friends with my university friends and I think the attitude now has changed somewhat that the males in the group would now not see wearing a thong on the beach either on their own or in male company an issue.
It's nice to see (at least in my circle of friends) how the opinions of male thongs has changed over the last 15 years and how male thongs are now more socially acceptable in public

Being with a woman is definitely better.  Not only does it mitigate some of the negative reaction, you get to be with a woman who hopefully is also in a thong,  Last year I was at a beach in Florida with my wife.  I was wearing a very small bikini (beachndance, pouch with 3 inch back).  She was in a nice but typical bikini.  While walking the beach with her I got scowls from some other men but I noticed their wives were smiling.
That said, when alone I often prefer to go to beaches that have more gay attendees.  Not because I am trolling but it is more likely that there are others in thongs and I find gay men more accepting of men in thongs.

A man accompanied by a woman is usually more accepted than a loner no matter what he’s wearing.
