My favorite and ONLY place that I can wear my thongs, with the exception of my backyard, is Assateague National Seashore which is just south of Ocean City, Maryland off Route 50.

I live in Delaware where thongs are against the law on all state beaches which means I have to drive south to Maryland to go to the beach which is actually has better beaches that are less crowded.

For the last couple of years that I have been wearing my gstring to Assateague National Park. I have never seen anyone else in skimpy swimwear, with the exception of a rio/brazilian bikini on the teenagers, until last Friday. While my wife and myself were at the beach enjoying ourselves I was amazed to see a middle-aged woman approximately 100 feet down the beach in a gstring playing frisbee with who looked to be the woman's husband and pre-teen daughter. They both had regular swimsuits on but this lady who was slightly overweight jumped around in front of everyone in her "gstring bikini" and she even went as far as walking down the beach at the shoreline with her sister/friend (who was in a one-piece) for approximately a 1/4 mile in front of everyone.

I applaud this woman for her courage even though she was slightly overweight.  My wife and I were both pleasantly surprised to see another "thonger" and hope that we have started a trend.

I have checked with the rangers at Assateague regarding thongs and there answer was "as long as you're wearing a swimsuit we don't care how small it is and if you are uncomfortable around crowds there is plenty of beach to walk away from the crowds so you can wear whatever you wish as long as you are wearing a swimsuit, thongs are perfectly fine"....this is the best answer I could have ever expected from a ranger.

I invite everyone to come to Assategue National Seashore to thong...just drive down to the "South Beach" in Assateague National Seashore just before the off-road fishing vehicle entrance and park in the small parking lot.

I like the south beach entrance better than the north beach entrance because there are no lifeguards there which usually means it is less crowded. A female can probably get away with being topless as long as they stay on their towel since the rangers only drive by once every three or four hours in a SUV checking on things. This is a very large beach that was recently replenished and I highly recommend it. Come on over and lets make this "South Beach" like the one in Miami this summer.

I've worn a thong at Assateague I.N.S and enjoyed it very much.  Not many people there when I was and I was the only guy (or gal) in any minimal swimsuit, let alone a thong.  But everyone greeted me with a smile, and i actually struck up a conversation with a couple of women in their 50's or so who were walking down the beach.  They didn't even mention my thong, even though they came up from behind me as I was walking!  They said Hi, then I said Hi, and we were soon talking.

Assateague is great...plenty of beach.  Just stay away from the family/tourist area.  I prefer to wear a small bikini myself,  just cuz it makes me feel and look better and i hate sand up my ass, and i like to swim.  But i LOVE my girlfriend wearing a g string...nothing like a g string and a small bikini top for that sexy look...and she can at Ass-ateague.  Just beware of the town, cuz it ain't very cosmopolitan, to say the least!  If you get off on parading in micro wear (or parading your girl), this ain't the place tho..you gotta move away from the crowds.Reply to : tbacktom

In a way, I think I share the attitude your girlfirend has.  I usually don't act "in your face" about wearing thongs, but in a place like that sometimes I like to combat the attitude with a little attitude of my own.

Besides, I really enjoy being "gawked" at sometimes.

I guess I shouldn't have worn a thong at O.C. Beach, according to what you posted.  Could i have been fined or something?  I will stick to my 1/2 back suit next time.

Tell me more about the kind of suits you wear.  Do you ever wear thongs?

I visited Assateague last Friday (August 8) and spent two hours on the beach wearing a slide front g-string; I moved the slide to its minimum.  I walked about twenty minutes north of the Maryland bath house and set up my blanket just above the high water mark.  I spent half the time face down; the other half face up.  There was a couple about a hundred yards from me and the man was wearing a thong. On the walk there, I noticed a women wear a thong and as I was on my blanket, a fellow walked by wearing a g-string.

It was a relaxing experience overall.  Occasionally, a some beach walkers would go by.  Two female groups did notice me.  One was a group three middle-aged women. as they were passing by, one pointed me out to the others and the others looked on with a smile on their face; one their way back, they checked my out again.  I was trying to sleep at the time, and I did not enter into a dialogue with them.  That was a missed opportunity, but at least they too enjoyed my g-string.

Let's try to get the most thongers ever out to Assateague in 2004. This place is a great place to wear your minimal swimwear. Just to clarify things, the beach I visit is NOT in the southernmost portion of Assateague Island that you access from Chincoteague Island, Virginia but instead the northern portion which you access directly off Route 50 in West Ocean City, Maryland. Just take Route 611, I think that was the number, across from the outlet stores south about five miles until you cross the big bridge onto the island. This is where you have two options....you can enter the State Park portion of Assateague Island which is straight ahead as soon as you cross the bridge, which I rarely use due the fact that a lot of children tend to go there because of the lifeguards, or take your first right once you cross the bridge and head down to the National Park.  The National Park has a entrance fee booth and once you pay the toll you now have two beaches to choose from...one is immediately on your left which is a guarded beach and usually is frequented by a lot of children in the summer. Thongs are permitted there but I personally don't feel comfortable thonging near a lot of kids. The second beach is a straight shot once you go through the toll booth, just drive about three miles further south, and just before you see the signs for the off-road four-wheel drive area, you will see the South Beach on your left. It has a small parking lot but you can park across the street where the nature walk is and walk across if the small lot is full. This beach is my personal favorite, it's never guarded all year, the beach is huge and clean, and no one cares what you wear!!! I've worn homemade see-through mesh gstrings that left nothing to the imagination without anyone saying a word. This place is great!!! Just post on this board when you're going and I'll try to be there. Nothing but Thongs in 2004!!!

Hi all......I have going to Assateague Island for many years now....and it has always been a pretty easy going place probably because there is SO MUCH beach there.  The extreme north end has always been a sort of nude beach.  It is not legal to be nude but on the weekends there is always some people that will be nude and will cover up whenever a Ranger drives by (which is usually about every 3 or 4 hours).  Only relatively small areas of the beach have lifeguards on them and that is where the crowds with children congregate.  Anywhere else, the crowds thin out.  Even on the holiday weekends, when the parking lots get filled to capacity, there seems to always be areas of uncrowded beach.  It has always been my experience that Assateague is a live and let live place....it seems that rednecks usually go to Ocean City and Dewey Beach in DE.  Last summer, I noticed at least two or three thongers on the beach every trip, and men wearing bikinis is definitely becoming more common.  It is no big deal at all for me to walk straight from the beachhouse through the crowded area down the beach wearing my Skinz Skinny Side Rio.  My wife who used to be very shy about wearing skimpy swimsuits, now enjoys her own particular European style: she loves wearing very skimpy Brazilian coverage string styles that ride so low as to show alittle flirty butt cleavage.  It seems every year the place takes on a more European beach atmosphere.  We hope this year it really takes off!!!

MDSKIMPYMAN,

                  "Two or three thongs every time you go to Assateague" you say??? Where on Assateague do you usually go to? I've only seen one other person in a thong there in the last three years, in addition to myself of course. My wife and I usually go to the unguarded South Beach Area just before the off-road area which is all the way down in the National Park section. Do you go straight in and park at the State Park section, then walk north towards Ocean City? I've never entered throught the state park before, maybe that's where everyone has been hiding all along. Please post a response so I can try your spot. There's power in numbers!!! Maybe next year they will vote in favor of making part of Assateague legally nude, we can only hope. Thanks.

I echo that last message: Exactly where at Assateague are the thongers going?  There's an awful lot of beach there.  Some of us prefer to thong alone, but others (like me) prefer to go where other thongers currently are going.  As I review the messages here, we have two groups: those who seem to find others in thongs and those who don't.  In the first group, (1) njbeachboy1949 walks 20 min north of the bathhouse (by the way, is there only one bathhouse?  I presume it's easy to find?) and (2) mdskimpyman mentions walking through the crowded area, which sounds like it must be much closer to the bathhouse than in (1).  In the second group, (3) tbacktom mentions the National Seashore, which borders the state park on both sides, but I don't believe he says whether he uses the north or south side; and (4) ctmonline prefers the South Beach just before the off-road fishing vehicle entrance.  In other words, it sounds like everyone is going someplace different.  If I am wrong, please let me know.  And one more question: do thongers ever hang out among the nudists at the north end?  Or are they separate groups?  Obviously I have never been to the beach at Assateague, but I am very interested.

CTMONLINE: Yes we have always used the State Entrance to Assateague, mainly because it is quicker and the facilities are nicer....and then we start walking north towards Ocean City.  You wil quickly get by the guarded beach where all the families are and find wide areas of unclaimed beach.  The North Beach is where there has been in the past an unofficial nude beach.  There has been alot of history involving the nude beach issue at Assateague.  In the past, apparently during the '70s and '80s, nudists got away with being nude because Assateague is a National Park and the federal rangers would not enforce State and local laws concerning nudity.  Now, the North part of Assateague is administered by the State of Maryland and the rangers WILL enforce laws against nudity if the issue is thrust up them.  The State has even posted "Nudity Prohibited" signs around the north beach end.  However...it seems to me that most of the rangers there (who definitely seem to love their summer beach lifestyle) take a sort of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" approach: meaning that they are not out there to hunt down sun loving people who are minding their own business and just enjoying the freedom of a natural unspoiled beach.  When the beach patrol comes by every three or four hours, the nudists simply cover up and wait for them to leave.  When I say cover up, that usually means cover up with a thong or g-string.  The patrol is not concerned by thongers and they have zoomed right by my wife and I (both wearing thongs at the time) while we were walking up the beach.

I am not saying that you will see hordes of thongers and g-stringers there.....this is still conservative America....but if you go to the north end on a sunny weekend, you will see some thongs and g-strings and if you walk far enough, probably some nudists as well.  Last year, a young German couple set up on the beach close to us.  Both wore thongs and the woman sunbathed topless, only putting her top on for swimming.

All in all, I keep feeling that the atmosphere at Assateague is the most tolerant of any beach I have been to in American.  The only time I ever had what you would call a problem was while walking through an area of high school kids wearing my bikini, a young girl yelled at me to "Put on some clothes!!!".  I was gratified to hear her friends shush her and tell her that I wasn't bothering anyone.

Thanks for the info.  I may just go to Assateague this summer and parade about in a G-string just because I am pissed that they shut down on the nude beach on the north part of the Island.  I was there before and remember the ranger telling me in glee about how concurrent-jurisdiction was going to allow them to crack down on nude sunbathers.  I sure hope they bring back the nude use agreement.

I made it out to Assateague today as planned. It was a lot colder on the beach then it was inland, around *65* degrees and mostly sunny. I entered through the State Park entrance at around 11am and walked for about thirty minutes north towards Ocean City, where the nudists supposedly go. At first there was no one in sight anywhere, but as soon as I passed the sign "Nudity Prohibited"  an older man could be seen in the distance covering up with a towel, he had been nude I think. I continued walking for about ten more minutes past him and set up my towel and stuff. I took off my tshirt and shorts and laid on my towel with my new " Dore Very-Low Micro Gstring" which is Black in color. Approximately ten minutes later another older man walked by me as I laid out with a light jacket on and NO PANTS. He was bare ass except for his jacket. He set up a towel near me but never took off his jacket. I stayed at the beach until 2:30pm, at which time I only put my towel in my backpack, only wearing my very small GSTRING, and I began walking back towards the clubhouse. I passed probably half-a-dozen people like this and I even passed a completely nude man in his early thirties just before the "Nudity Prohibited" sign. As the clubhouse came into view I put my tshirt and shorts back on before I ran into the families and stuff.

I made it out to Assateague again yesterday as planned. I entered through the State Park entrance as usual and walked all the way north towards Ocean City until I reached the signs right on the beach which read "Area Closed", this is where the birds are nesting on the beach. I finally got to my spot around NOON after the long walk up the beach. There wasn't anyone else around so I stripped down to my (BLACK-SHEER) Dore Micro Gstring, which at this point has horizontal tears in the fabric from being stretched, in order to get everything stuffed inside. The suit still holds together but the suit is even more see-through now, the material is similar to sheer black women's nylons, and the look is rather cool looking also. I was laid out on my towel for about an hour when a man, who looked to be around fifty years-old, could be seen walking up the beach in my direction wearing a shirt, pants, hat and carrying a large duffel bag.  He walked past me, just beyond the signs, and set up his towel just slightly out of my eyesight. Approximately thirty minutes later a young couple walked by me, they were both fully dressed. The couple continued past me up to where the older man was set-up, at which time they turned around and walked back past me again, returning to the main beach area. Neither the man or the couple said a word as they passed, at least from what I could hear. Just after the couple passed I decided to go on a short walk up and down the beach, not too far from my towel though. As I walked toward the older man in my gstring, the older man took my picture from his towel, I found this rather odd but I let it go. After I got back to my towel, I laid face-down in order to tan my back and buns. I must have dosed off or something because when I looked up the older man was about fifty feet from me walking up the shoreline with his camera around his neck and a hat on, but nothing else, he was completely naked. I acted as if I could care less and the man continued walking past me and a good couple hundred yards up the beach until he was almost out of sight. He was really far away from his clothes and if a ranger drove onto the beach he would have been screwed since it isn't legal to go nude in Assateague yet. It was around 2:00pm at this time and I decided to start the long walk back to the clubhouse, since I needed to be home by 3:15pm to take the wife to dinner. I put my towel and stuff in my backpack and started heading south towards the clubhouse and directly towards the naked man, only wearing my see-through black gstring, and holding my backpack. As the passed the naked man he didn't say a word, he kept walking in the opposite direction past me, acting as if nothing unusual was going on. I continued walking down the beach towards the clubhouse as I got closer to the "Nudity Prohibited"...putting my clothes back on before the lifeguard stand.

I didn't make it out to Assateague on Sunday; May 9th like I had planned. I did go today, Thursday,  May 13th from 10:30am until 1pm though. It was really great weather when the whole time and when I finished walking all the way north to the "nudist" section no one was there, for now. Around 11:30 am a man in his late forties came and set up about fifty yards from me. I was in my "Dore Sheer Black Micro Gstring" as usual laying on the beach at the time. The man stripped down to a light green thong suit immediately, much to my surprise. About ten minutes later a man, about thirty-five years old, walked by me wearing a "rio-cut" black speedo. He stopped and talked to the man in the green thong for a while, they must be regulars there. Another twenty minutes passed and a man in his late forties could be seen jogging up the beach from a distance. As he got closer, he was wearing a gtsring too. As the day went on a couple more guys in thongs set up further down the beach from me. The park rangers drove by us twice in their trucks but since we're legal they had no reason to stop, no nudes out today. Today has to be the record for thongers on Assateague so far this year (five).

Made it out to Assateague again today. "NJBEACHBOY1949" was supposed to be there but I'm not sure if he made it or not. I was there from 10:30am until 2pm and over the course of the day about five guys in thongs and one naked guy were in my general area. The naked guy even came over and asked me for the time, even though I think he was looking for more (possibly gay), about that time is when I left. It was mostly cloudy and cool all day. No women once again.

I did make it to Assateague both Thursday, May 20 and Friday, May 21.  Both days were cloudy and windy.  On Thursday, I was only there for about an hour.  On Friday, after passing the "nudity prohibited" sign, I took off my shorts and walked towards the northern end wearing my zebra g-string and a t-shirt.  I set up my towel on the beach at about 10:40 AM, took off my t-shirt for about an hour when a sudden chill came in and I put my shorts, t-shirt and a sweat shirt on; I left around 12:30 PM.

Today, Monday, May 24, I was on the beach again from 1:00 to 3:30 PM.  wearing a blue g-string with a sliding front.  It was a bit windy and the wind was blowing the sand around, but after trying a few spots,  I finally found one near the water that did not have too much blowing sand.  There must have been about a dozen people (at least 3 women) scattered between the "nudity" sign and the end of the beach; most were nude. 

I am sorry for missing "CTMONLINE", but Friday was not an ideal thong day.

I am not planning to be near Assateague for the remainder of the summer; I will be thonging (or going nude) on Long Island and New Jersey beaches.

Directions to Assateague: From Easton follow "Route 50" south towards Ocean City. When you're almost to West Ocean City you will see signs for Assateague Island Park. You will end up turning right onto Route 611, I think that's the number, you will see signs anyway. Stay on that road for about eight miles, you will pass the "Frontier Town" Amusement Park & Water Slide and some golf courses on the way. Once you cross the big Verranzano Bridge, stay straight and pay the $3.00 at the State Park entrance, then park in the big parking lot and cross onto the beach at the bathhouse. As soon as you get across the dune you will see the main beach with lifeguards and usually a bunch of kids, turn left (north) and walk up the beach approximately twenty to thirty minutes away from the main beach. The nude/thong area is at the end of the beach just before the bird nesting area, basically just walk until you can't go any further due to the signs/cable across the beach. You will see a few people in the area anyway at the least so it's hard to miss.....just a good walk to get there. There isn't usually anyone except a few walkers on the beach in between the main beach and the long walk to the nude/thong section, but don't lose hope, there is usually someone down there if the weather is good.

If you want the most people on the beach as company in thongs and nude, Saturday's are by far the best day to go to Assateague. I wouldn't let the walk scare you away...it only takes me about fifteen minutes at a brisk pace because I know exactly where I'm headed. My thirty minute estimate is only if you walk slow, which most people will tend to do if they have never been there before. As long as the weather is good I'm usually there on almost every Friday and Saturday unless I have other plans.

I'm glad to hear that g strings are ok at Assateague.  I haven't been there in 4 or 5 years.  Last time I went there were quite few nude people, I was nude also.  It was great, but I was warned by several that the rangers were ticketing.  I did talk to a guy there who was wearing a g string and I asked him about it.  Made perfect sense.  I have two that I bought last summer one black and one white, the white one is see through wehn wet.  So, with all that said, I am definately going to make it over sometime this summer, even if I have to take a day off from work.  I live outside Washington DC so it's about a 4 hour drive each way for me.  If I go I will definately stay all day.

Would love to meet some others.  My wife would never go and would never wear a skimpy bathing suit. Oh well, her loss!

Hope to hear from some of you.

I'll be going to Assateague on the Virginia end (near Chincoteague) in early August and was wondering if anyone has had thonging experience there (and where). Maybe I'll get a chance to get up to the Maryland end of the island for a look at the South Beach referred to by others.

Showtime,

         I wouldn't waste my time in the Virginia end of Assategue Island. I went there all the time when I was a kid and I never have seem a thong there. It's practically the "bible belt" in Chincoteague anyway, very conservative. There are also no bathhouses or showers there anymore due to the beach erosion. You're best bet would to drive to Ocean City and head south to Assateague State Park. Don't head south, head north on the beach, walk for about twenty minutes and you will see someone in a thong or nude. Good luck.

Was at Assateague two times this week and can say that a twenty minute walk north of the Assateague State park beyound the "No Nudity Allowed" sign will put you in thongers paradise. Great beach, great space.

Don't tell too many people however. On Monday there were only two of us on the beach and yesterday perhaps a dozen up and down the beach. The beach patrol came by twice yesterday (not once on Monday), once in the morning and again in the afternoon and though a couple of folks were nude, once seen, a towel showed up and the patrol kept moving.

Hope to be back before Fall, but off to try Black's Beach in LaJolla.

My wife and I have just returned from spending two days in West Ocean City, It rained all day Wednesday but yesterday was absolutely perfect. I had purchased two Speedo thongs to wear at Assateague but left them home. Lost my nerve. I did however wear a regular Speedo with slightly over 1" sides and wished I had brought the thongs. I also wanted to give my wife a chance to get used to her new bikini that I surprised her with. I might add that I will be 59 in a few days and she is four years younger, I would be considered fat and she is rather large. We had a great time in our somewhat skimpy attire and look forward to going to Assateague and Sandy Point State park in the future and hope that we will no encounter predjudice as to age or weight in the thong community.

Assateague used to be a safe place to nude, until the policy of concurrent justidiction hit during the Reagan era. I was at the beach the year before and remember one of the ranges gloating to me about how they were going to kick us nudist off the beach. He did not mention anything about inappropriate behaviour - it was the nudity. Unfortunatly, one of the side effects of making the beach less safe to go nude is that families and other more mainstream nudist won't go there. We're not about to chance getting a ticket. So there are fewer people who can and will police the area. It unfortunate that these individuals cause so much grief for all, but if there were more law-abiding nudist there there would be fewer of these perverts. I know I've had to warn several individuals about their behaviour on nude beaches. The more successful nude beaches have "mayors" and patrols and such that actively curtail such things. If Assateague is ever going to be a free beach again there needs to be such a "Friends of Assategue Beach" (FAB) that would take these actions.BTW, I think it would be useful to start an Assateague group/thread. Despite such setbacks, I think it is important to push for a nude section of the beach.

Reply to Fat Senior,

                I wouldn't be too worried about you're age when it comes to thonging, but I would try to use your interest in thonging to motivate you into getting into better shape and exercising, since you mentioned you were fat. I use my love of minimal/extreme swimwear to help push myself into the gym at least a few times a week. I figure that the more that I workout, the better I will look in my thong on the beach, it really helps a lot. As far as Assateague Island is concerned, I don't think anyone will care if you are overweight or older, you wouldn't believe some of the people that I've seen there. The ages range from eightteen to eighty years old, you will people in perfect shape with tanned bodies, but you will also see pale white overweight people as well. Everyone is either in a bikini, thong, or fully nude...it all depends...but no one cares!!! The people at the north end of Assateague are extremely friendly, you may meet a new friend while you're there. I learned a long time ago, the hard way, not to be overly concerned with what others think. Please note that Assateague Island State Park opens April 1st and close down Nov 1st...see you in 2005!!!

I'm the same way...wanting to wear a thong at the beach pushes me to work out more often so that I look good in it.

As to Assateague, great place, and like most out-of-the-way nude beaches nobody cares that much what you look like or wear unless you're acting like a perv or a jerk. Love that place...but it's been a probably 5 years since I was there.

I visit o.c. every year. let me know about 2005 this summer if anyone is going thonging there. I would like to try it for the first time but I would not want to be the only one.

Sounds like we're all anxious for spring. I'll certainly be at Sandy Point as soon as it warms up. Since Assateague is 3 1/2 hours away, it may be awhile before I get there. I do want to try it, though. I'll look forward to early reports on thonging at these beaches. Hmmmm...wonder how warm it has to get for thonging...75 degrees?...80? Now that I'm turned on to thonging, the winter seems much longer.

I've been at Assateague as early in the year as April and as late in the year as Nov 1st. Personally, I won't go to Assateague until they forecast at least 70 degrees as the high temperature, it will still be cool on the beach though, it seems like as soon as you cross the Veranzano Bridge the temperature drops 10 degrees. Keep that it mind before you plan a trip to Assateague.

Question about Assateague:  At the north end (where both thongers and nudists tend to hang out), approximately how many people, on average, might I find there both (1) on a weekday and (2) on a weekend, in May and June?  I am presuming that the weather each time would be sunny and at least 75 degrees (for May) or 80 (for June).  I haven't been there yet but am definitely looking forward to visiting.

If I may, I would like to add one more question. How many (%) of those who are there will be females?

I think it's silly to ask " approximately how many people, on average, might I find there both (1) on a weekday and (2) on a weekend, in May and June?" or "how many will be female?"

First, there may be some thongers, but quite posibly not visible from the spot you are sitting on: IN this case you are talking about a big bit of coast.

Second, thongers are like migratory birds, they fly in, hang for a little bit and then split. Who is there at 10am is going to be diffrent than who is there at 4PM.

The weather, the way the wind blows, the temp, the sun and the day of the week, will all combine to make predicting numbers of thongers a bit like trying to predict the number of aces in a hand of cards. You know that if all 52 cards were delt there would be four aces, but trying to predict how many are in the first hand delt is bound to lead to disapointment.

On some beaches you can garintee seeing women in thongs, like my beach in Fort Lauderdale, but you may have to know just where to sit, and at what time of day, if you want to be compleetly surounded by them. Having a certanty of several men in thongs is probably inposible, unless you go to a place like South Beach, HaulOver or Ft D. It just depends on the day. Such clusterings are fickle.

One way to make sure there are men in thongs is to wear one your self!

Let me say first that I agree with JM's response to "TJ-22" and "thonginthesun" completely, it's a roll of the dice to predict how many people, what type, or gender will be at a beach on a particular day of the week. I will say that the most people seem to be at Assateague on Friday-Sunday, common sense would tell you that, all the tourists roll in on the weekends. If you want an approximate number or description of a normal day at Assateague, you should read some of my reports from last year under the "personal experiences" column of this messageboard. If that's too time consuming, my best answer to your questions would be to expect only one or two other thongers at Assateague during the week, with probably six or eight on the weekends, only if the weather cooperates until summer gets here. Once summer gets here you can usually expect five or six other thongers during the week and I've witnessed at least forty or fifty around July 4th weekend personally. Most of the thongers at Assateague are single males, gay couples, and straight couples. Very few single women are willing to go to this section of the beach alone, some guys don't know how to act and run them off, my wife was followed up the beach while walking the beach once by a nude man who was rather exciting to put it mildly. If you guys want females to come to Assateague, someone needs to tell the sex offenders to stay at home, their scaring everyone off.

I have been going to the north end of Assateague for the last seven years and last summer seemed to really turn a corner from previous years.  In the past, up on the north end one used to see a few regular nude men on the weekends and rarely a woman....but last summer things seemed to change.  There was quite a contingent of nudists on the weekends with many nude couples and groups of couples in the nude.  I was completely surprised to see so many nude females as well as males.  However,  I am afraid that the increase in nude sunbathers caught the attention of the general public and there may have been complaints.  A few months ago, I saw a news segment on Baltimores WBAL 11:00 news talking about a general crackdown by park rangers on nudists along Assateague State Park.  The report talked about a zero tolerance policy towards this with undefined harsh penalties.  I guess it remains to be seen what is in store this summer.  In the past my wife and I have worn thongs and have had rangers drive right past us walking along the beach with no problem.  I sure hope we haven't lost a good thing....

Mdskimpyman,

         I agree with you one-hundred percent in regards to last year, it was great, on July 4th weekend there were at least fifty people at the northern end of Assateague. They wore everything from speedos to nothing at all, they ranged from 20 to 75 years old, the majority were males but there were definitley a good number of females as well.

        In regard to the news report on WBAL this winter, I read the report online and it really had me upset, what the hell were those guys thinking walking up to a ranger nude!!! We have to respect the rangers at Assateague, we all have jobs we have to do, they are no different.  I think we should give them a break, from what I've seen over the last few years the rangers at Assateague are very fair, in my opinion. In fact, some of the suits that I've worn are far beyond "legal" but they've never hassled me yet, some of these suits that I wear don't cover anything...they're completely see-through...but the rangers still just drive on by in their trucks. As long as you're not nude when they drive by, you can see them a mile away driving up the beach with their lights on, you won't have a problem. During most weekends this past summer, one of the regulars (nudists) would blow a whistle when a ranger was approaching, giving everyone notice to cover up, that was the best.

        In conclusion, my worries about Assateague have passed, I've been there twice already this spring without a problem. I've wore the skimpiest gstring that I own both times as well, a Dore Micro Gstring made out of "black fishnet" material, it has about 1/8" round black holes throughout making it completley see-through. The rangers just passed right on by each time, plus there was a topless woman in a thong just down the beach from me who would just roll over when the ranger passed as well with no hassles. I was told by a ranger a few years ago in reference to thongs; "as long as you're wearing a swimsuit, no matter how small, you will be fine"...and that was from a ranger!!! As far as the public report goes, I think the rangers were forced to respond to the nude guys that were on the news, they completely disrespected the ranger, they had to make an example out of someone. Have fun, just don't push your luck.

                                         *Hopefully this summer will be even better than last!!!*

I have been a regular at Assateague for a number of years. Only last year, I did not get to the beach but a few times. Several years ago, a group of "regulars" were in the unofficial clothing optional area, and of course we were nude. The rangers had a problem at the southside of the inlet to Ocean City and were running up and down the beach. It was almost comicial to see the ranger stop at the road before entering the beach, flash their headlights, turn on the emergency lights and "test" their siren...then proceed at slow speed north. All of us would coverup and wave to the ranger as the truck passed. Upon his return down the beach (south) his lights would be flashing. On one trip, a woman was laying out nude and refused our warning about covering up. She stated that she was tired of covering up so often, and she did not do so. The ranger had to stop and request that she cover up and she said something to the fact of "do I really have to?" He was obligated to give her a ticket and ask her to leave the park. The ticket at the time was $100. After she left...the ranger again heading back to the inlet...stopped and chatted with us. He did not want to ticket her, but was forced to. I nor any of the others there had a problem with this...in fact, we told him so.

The next week while at the beach, a group of boaters landed on the inlet side of the island. Everyone, covered up as they approached the ocean side. They stood there and looked around, and approached us and said "thought this was the nude area..." Then we all chuckled and said it could be and again it might not be...LOL They had explained that when they went to launch their boats they inquired about landing on the island. The ranger told them yes, but warned then that there is a nude area here, (and point to a map). They thanked the female ranger and headed over....LOL

They became regulars for the rest of the summer.

The only thonging I have seen in the nude area is when shell pickers, families, or people we do not know approach the area. As well as the rangers. Have noticed some thongers strolling from the family area north...but soon shed the thongs.

Planning on being on the beach alot this summer....

Reading through these messages, it seems that skimpy, sheer g-strings are ok in the north beach of the state park. What's ok on the south beach, near where the 4-wheel drive area starts?

Sail-and-Beach,

            I believe the "south beach" that you are referring to is in the National Park section of Assateague, the small parking lot on the left just before the 4WD section begins. About three or four years ago I frequented this section, that was before I knew about the "north beach" section of the State Park. In the couple years that I went to this section I only ran into one other person in a thong, an overweight female, even though thongs are legal on all of Assateague. This section is also frequented by a lot of families with small children as well, not exactly an ideal place to thong in my opinion, but you're more than welcome to give it a try. I only go to the "north beach" now, I enjoy the company of other thongers and the nudists up there, it's really laid back and just a better part of the beach to thong in my opinion...the beach goes on for miles.

The National Park "south beach" was the one I was refering to. I have been to the North beach and really like it. I haven't tried the south beach, although I have thonged in the 4-wheel drive area. I have a tan-thru Heswimwear g-string I'd like to try on the south beach, but didn't want to over-do it.

Sail-and-Beach,

              I wouldn't waste my time or money at the south beach, the very open crowd at the north end of the beach where I go now really make it worth the walk, I went to the south beach a few years ago back before I knew about the north beach...now it's almost the last place I would go. I was at Assateague by myself  today, check out my report in the 'personal experiences" section...going back tomorrow with the wife joining me. See you there.

ctmononline, I don't know if you were at Assateague on last Saturday. I arrived at the north beach around 12 and stayed until almost 3:00. I don't know how to reconise you. I asked several people who had a female with them (thinking it might be your wife) if they had an online name ctmonline, but they wern't. I will post a message on personal expreances about my trip. In general I thought that the south beach was more "fun'. Perhaps this is becaues it is more daring--people don't have as lax a dress code. (When you are wearing a thong on a nude beach you feal overdressed.) I would find the north beach more interesting if the male/female ratio was more equal.

I was there Thursday and Friday...for future reference I usually post in the "Contacts" section a few days before I go to Assateague. I won't be there this weekend, I've got second-degree sunburn on my face from Friday, forgot the sunblock, maybe the following week. Was anyone wearing a thong at the "south beach" portion of the park other than you, I too feel overdressed sometimes at the "north beach", but it's the best place I've found to thong so far.

I have a question.  In surfing around this site and others on the web, opinions seem to be divided as to whether you are better off on Assateague or at the Ocean City beaches.  I appreciate you will attract more attention at Ocean City, so Assateague is probably better if you want to be left alone.  But if you don't mind anybody else, how is Ocean City.  I will be down there this summer and Ocean City will be much more convenient (walking distance) than driving all the way to Assateague.  Has anybody ever had any legal problems thonging in Ocean City?

Certainly women don't have any trouble thonging.  I have seen women strolling down the boardwalk wearing only G-string bikinis (though in general, thongs are rare).  But I have never seen a man wear a thong in Ocean City.  Over the past 8-10 years, even Speedos have been hard to find.  Unfortunately, Ocean City is dominated by board shorts.  I applaud your interest, but understand that you will be far from the norm.

Thanks for the information.  I haven't been to Ocean City in 13 years, and things have obviously changed since then.  I will plan on trying it and seeing how it goes.  I have no problem being the only male; I think the double standard is stupid, and I enjoy pushing the envelope in this regard.  I just want to be sure I will not have any problems with the lifeguards/beach patrol.  I am not sure I am up for strolling the boardwalk, but it sounds like walking the beach and swimming will be no problem.

When I was in Ocean City last year in late September and early October, I didn't see any thongs...either on women or men. Some things in the past decade haven't changed that much, O.C. still gets very crowded in the summer. It's still a middle-class family and boisterous teen atmosphere. IMHO, it's a very intolerant atmosphere for men in thongs. You have my respect for even considering thonging in O.C. But I understand that the northern beaches away from the boardwalk are not as densely populated as the main boardwalk area. You could probably thong there without any problems.

One thing that has changed in O.C. is the number of new high rise condos and high end hotels going up. I read somewhere that O.C. may become something akin to South Beach, Miami. If that happens let's hope the liberal South Beach atmosphere comes with it.

My wife and I were at Assateague yesterday and today.  The weather was not great yesterday, but today was nice.  We walked North to the end of the sand dune.  Not that many people walking the beach yesterday.  We were able to wear our thong bathing suits for the first time in public. 

Today we went to the same location.   There was a lot of people walking the beach and my wife didn't fell comfortable wearing her thong bikini.  I didn't care and wore mine. 

We might go back tomorrow before we leave the area.  It all depends on the weather.  Hopefully I can convince my wife into wearing her's.
