I went thonging at the beach last week and laid out next to two other girls; one who was also in a thong. Later on, they left and I was now in close visual range of two other girls who were laying out on their other side (not in thongs). Up to that point, I had not gone walking and neither had they so they didn't know what I was wearing.

When the first two girls left, I was actually laying on my back but the fact I was wearing something with a "bikini" front had somewhat captured the two "new girls" attention (one was staring quite intently!).

I decided it was time to get up. When I did one of the girls starting grinning from ear to ear and quickly found her camera. She pointed it towards the ocean for a few seconds then straight at me for more than a few seconds! She handed the camera to her friend who was laying with her feet towards me... this is so funny... she sat the camera on her stomach rather discretely as if she wasn't aiming - but it became obvious when she moved her knees to expose the lens and started adjusting the focus!!!

This was my first experience of "catching" someone taking my picture. It almost bothered me at first but when it became apparent that they were really enjoying themselves, I took it as a compliment. Whether they were laughing at me or enjoying the view, I was glad to have helped put a smile on their face. If I were wearing my long dork shorts, just think how bored they would have been - Thong on, friends, thong on!!!

Total strangers have taken numerous photos of me over years dressed in string bikinis or g-srtings, and I've always viewed it as a compliment.

It is fun to think that someone found you attractive or interesting enough to spend the time and money to take a picture. I also find it exciting that all of those pictures are out there and that I have no control over them. The only thing that does get under my skin is when people sneak around and take pictures without my permission. If you ask nicely, I'm more than willing to pose.

I've some great stories too that I will share in the future. How about anyone else?

Agree- it's a compliment. When sunning on the beach in small swimsuits, we have also had many other thongers ask us to take their own beach photo with their camera in their micro-suits.

Good topic...

I've been asked to pose for pictures several times and have always enjoyed it.  Just to describe a couple of times:

I once was asked to pose with a group of college girls on spring break and it was obviously a joke to them to be photographed with an older guy in a thong, but it was all in good fun and I enjoyed it none the less. 

To the other extreme, I met a woman on a morning run along the beach who was photographing the sea gulls, the sunrise, and so on.  We got into a conversation and she was very complimentary of my thong and my body.  She asked to photograph me and I agreed.  We ended up meeting every morning for a week in the same spot and she photographed me more and more each day.  I wore a different thong each day and she took pictures of me standing, sitting, running, wading in the waves, and even on my hands and knees.  I was very flattered by all this, and I must say I was visibly aroused in many of the photos.  On the last day she asked a passer by to photograph us together.  This was one of the greatest thonging experiences of my life.

 

I've also been photographed inadvertantly many times by people taking general beach photos.  I just happened to be in the foreground of the photo, and I didn't mind at all.  I'd like to think they wanted me in the shot.

I guess I'll never know if I've been photographed by people when i wasn't looking for good or bad purposes.  I haven't done too many things in public that could get me put in jail....

Finally, I've asked people to photograph me with my own camera - friends and total strangers - and a lot of times, I got caught up in the moment and posed in somewhat risque positions.   I like showing myself off in minimal swimwear.

I too had some collage girls ask me to pose with them at Breezes Resort in Runaway Bay in Jamaica. They, like some others, asked for three pictures, front, side and back, which is the same that I would want of a lady. These ladies were young enough to be my daughters, but it was still a lot of fun.

 

It? been my experience over the last 30 years (I hate to write that) that many women are as interested in our bare skin as we are in theirs. What holds them back is what some women think society expects of them, and what encourages them is a non-threatening atmosphere.

I've had girls take my picture many times. At Galveston Island, Barton Springs Pool, and at Sneeky Pete's, which is a marina club on Lake Lewisville, in Lewisville, Tx.

I too, like the fact that they have pictures that they will probably show their friends.

When I am in running condition I run about 5 to 8 miles on Fort Lauderdale beach. Normally out running in a thong three days a week. Right now I off because I damaged a leg in a Turkish river gorge. Hope to be back running next week. I run early so there are not normally many tourists on the beach sand. Tourists still take pictures all the same. Locals don? normally carry cameras on the beach.

I have been stopped several times by people who wanted their pictures taken with me or who asked if they could take my picture. This is rare, normally they just take it surreptitiously. With the advent of small digital video cameras, I can see them scanning the beach view and just lingering while the camera is pointed in my direction. Newer digital cameras have preview screens so the person does not even have to be looking your way with the device up to their eye to take the shot.

The funny thing is I have never seen any of the pictures people have taken. I suspect there are hundreds of them or I the other possibility is there are now hundreds of cameras with cracked lenses.

We often get phonographs out on the beach taking advantage of the ealy morning light. Often they are photographing bikini models in tiny suites. The models are trying to look natural and relaxed while standing in a group of clothed supporters who hold cameras, reflective disks, clip boards and cups of coffee. I always give them a cheery wave, I think it helps them to know they are not the only one out in a micro suite that morning.

Some times we get TV news or Film crews. I try not to run through their shots. It costs them money and time so I try to be courteous. Some times I get it wrong and go the wrong side of the cameras or don? notice the shoot until it? too late.

One time, when approaching what was obviously a film crew I made a funny mistake. I looked at the direction people were looking and the cameras near me were pointed. I carefully made a note to run on the back side of them. It turns out they were filming a segment about filming models, similar to what Sports Illustrated does. Turns out they had cameras pointing both up and down the beach. I had chosen the wrong side and ended up running right through a take. They all laughed and the model gave a winning smile.

Another time I ran past my final life guard station and turned left to my finish only to notice that there was a TV truck and camera parked on the road. The crew were friendly and explained that they had just finished doing a wether spot. It was winter and there was an ice storm up north. They were one of several remote TV trucks reporting the temperatures around the country.

The talent was wearing a shirt, tie and jacket and had just finished saying that it was even chilly in Fort Lauderdale as evidenced by the lack of people on the beach. At 9am it may have been a little chilly for beach goers but very pleasant for running in a thong. The crew said they had spotted me coming down the beach and were sort of hoping I would run through the back of the standup? shot while he was doing his spot live on national TV. Fortunately I am not that fast and the feed ended before I got there.

One day I will finally get to see one of the picturers of me running down the beach in a thong. It will probably be a day when the leg gears are not working and I am plodding along while dyeing of exhaustion. The picture will probably I look terrible and I will stop.

All you guys who like to have your photos taken! I like the stories but would be interested to know whether the photos were taken near home or work, or far away on holiday where there was little risk of them being seen by friends, neighbours or colleagues at work. As far as I know, I have never been photographed - not many people take their cameras to swimming pools here.

I am a bit worried about the new generation of cellphones: They will be able to transmit pictures in realtime. The conversation might run like this:

"Hi! You'll never guess who I just saw at the pool in a teeny-weeny thong. Just look at thiiiiis!"

"(Gasp) Oh my Gaaaawd - it's .... and you can see everything! I would never have thought he was the type - I wonder if his wife knows!"

O god, what will people think !! 

First, don't worry about what people you don't know think. 

Second, don't worry, I have been running in a thong, on a bussy city beach, every other day for about 7 years.  Some of my friends know and have been very suportive.  I have never yet had a business client or social client say any thing about it.  Maybe some have seen me but not one has said anything. 

Over the years I am sure that hundreds of photos of me running down the beach have been taken.  Never seen one yet and have never seen one on the web.  In some ways that's a little disaponting: It makes me feel a little invisable.  I dont know if any of my customers have seen me but the only people who have ever said any thing are:

  • A friend who lives near by and when they are off to work they some times see me peddling to the beach on my bike.  Said they see me and are still good friends.  They could not care a bit.  I am suprized they have never teased me about it.  In a good humored way they tease other people all the time.
  • The locals at the coffee shop that I stop at after running.  Generaly very supportive. We normaly talk word events, local politics and point out the stunning girls who jog on the beach side walk.   Only one grumpy man who comes with a regular group of coffee drinkers often seen on Saturday hassaid any thing negitive.
  • Some of the residents on my street(s).  They still keep electing me to the association board and no one has said anything except how come I am going to the beach when they are going to work ?

So don't worry.  Most people just don't care.  If they do know you then I reckon that 98% of the time they are more than supportive.  After all they know you and know you are a good guy.

Most of my more recent shots were taken at the resort, Breezes, in Runaway Bay, Jamaica. When I was young a lot of them were taken at a Playboy resort in MacAfee, NJ, which was a lot closer to home. Frankly I don? care where they were taken, it? just fun.

 

One Halloween I went to a party dressed in a loincloth that was thrown by someone at work. Lots of pictures were taken, and sure enough when they posted a big board of pictures at work, there I was in all of my seminude glory. Once the Boston Globe took my picture taken at a charity costume party in Boston at which I wore the same loincloth. In the article I was described as wearing ?ody paint and little else.?They published my picture, which was larger than any other costume picture in the article, but they cropped out my body, no doubt to maintain their ??rated content.

 <!--?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comIn the long run if it does not involve sexual content, it does not matter. That? my opinion. Just have FUN!

As my wife and I were visiting Negril, Jamaica, I decided to go for a swim in my white thong.  The water was very shallow and I could walk far out from shore.  On my way back in, I notice my wet suit had become semi transparent and that my wife was talking to two other girls in very small bikinis.  They had noticed me entering the water and asked if I would take a picture with them.  My wife agreed to be the photographer and after instructing my wife how to use the camera, the three of us waded into the shallow water.  My suit had dried and the one girl said she wished it was still wet and the other girl began to splash the two of us.  Now very wet, and showing a lot of form, the two girls cuddled up to me, as I wrapped my arms aroud them, for a close group pose,and my wife snapped away.  Thanking me for the pictures, they said the other girls at work would be envious.  After some small talk, they disappeared down the beach.

Sounds like you had a great experience hotrod.

 

Some years ago a middle-aged lady took a picture of me in string bikini at a Delaware beach (that was the briefest suit that was legal there). Three years later a woman came up to me asked, ?idn? I take a picture of you a while back? I?e had it hanging on my bulletin board, and all my friends really love it! Could I take another??/FONT>

 <!--?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comWell how could I resist a request like that? Naturally I posed for another!

 

Another time while I was vacationing in Jamaica I met couple who had come to the resort to get married. This time I could wear my tiny g-strings, and they thought that was really a neat thing for a man to do.

 

On the day of their ceremony after they were married, they came to the pool area with a professional photographer for some post-nuptial pictures. They spotted me and came over and said, ?on? get dressed. Would you pose with us for some pictures?

 

At first I was little nonplused, but then I thought, ?hat the heck??I found the contrast between his tuxedo, her full white wedding gown and my tiny g-string strangely erotic. The pictures were taken in rapid-fire order very quickly with me enough positions to show my body at almost every angle.

 

After the pictures were taken, they thanked me and told me that I had been, ? good sport.?Actually being ? good sport?had had nothing to do with it. I probably had more fun than they did.

Although I've never had anyone approach me to ask to take my photo, there was one vacation I was with another male friend and we met two girls on the beach. When we had returned back home we discovered one photo on my camera of me in a thong while my mate and I were in the sea. A couple of weeks later, my friend has his film developed too and found another photo. Neither of us knew the photos had been taken so it was quite amusing... and my mate's girlfriend said I looked good in a thong, so I wasn't going to complain! Anyway, who knows, maybe they took a photo of me on their camera(s) too?

In my post in Other places in the US away from the beach, on the second page of enjoying the Azrizona Sun I told about someone taking pictures of a bunch of us around my pool in the backyard and how some quick thinking chased off the guy trying to get some candid photos. If he would have come to the gate and asked I don't thing anybody there that day would have objected to having photos taken, but he didnt do that.

Last year I was at the end of the summer a few days on a North Sea beach in the south of Holland (Domburg to be precise). A lot of German people is visiting this region every year.
I was walking a quiet part of the beach in my Very Narrow thong of Dore when a German woman approached me. She was a professional photographer for a French lifestyle magazine (and she could prove this in full).
She had heard about small swimwear for men but never seen one in real life.
She asked me if she could take pictures of me. Because of my age (58 years then) and my not perfect figure, I thought she was kidding.
She explained that only the swimsuits would show on the pictures, the body would be faded with a graphic editor. She showed me even a standard contract about the legal and financial implications of publishing the pictures.
So finally we agreed and started shooting on a deserted part of the beach.
I had quite a collection of Dore with me, so I started with a less revealing model. With every change of suit, it was more revealing and the lady was more excited. The show ended with a Low Cut Missile string and that took her breath away.
After the shoot we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon together. I changed into the Low Cut thong to walk back to the crowded part of the beach to have a drink. The lady changed into a rather small string she never dared to wear before.
Three month later I received a French magazine with inside an article about minimal swimwear for men in general with 8 small pictures of my suits.
A few days later the promised cheque arrived.
For me it was a nice experience and a nice afternoon. It gave me a thrill to know that your pictures were published even if nobody could recognize me.

In general I have no objection to appear on photo's but I hate sneaky people with a candid way of taking pictures or video's.

My wife and I went skiing today with some friends at the lake. We wore matching micro kinis with 4"wide rears and equally as small fornt coverage. While I was water skiing one time another boat came up beside us with a video camera filming me skiing in my micro. They kind of did a panoramic view filming and at one point I waved to them making sure not to fall or do something stupid that would have been funniest video material.

I rode long on my road bike this morning. Finished the ride at the beach and sat drinking coffee and talking with friends. They always stake out a regular spot: Just across the road from the coffee shop, over the wall and in the shade of the palm trees.  This was Sunday morning so there was lots of girls in tiny bikinis and thongs. Bikini backs are getting smaller so it's often difficult to draw the line.

I was regretting not having a thong on under neath so I could swim with out soaking the bike shorts.  We were sitting in the shade under the palm trees when a couple setup in front of us.  A gorgeous girl in a tiny thong with a boy friend in long dork shorts.

I mentioned to my friend that she should be my girlfriend instead of his since I wore thongs and so did she. At that moment she rolled over to show us a line free topless tan. She looked spectacular. My friends said, "You are right, you two would make a good couple in thongs, but you are telling the wrong person, you should be telling her."

Now thongs are very common but not so for topless girls close to the side walk.  Betty, who was sitting so she could see the side walk and road behind me, started to count the number of passers who did a double take.

We spied one women discreetly taking a photo and Betty says, "Bet that camera has a digital zoom."
I said that "I notice a few people taking photos when I'm out running in a thong but not very often."
Betty said "O they do my dear, It's just when you look their way they hide the camera but from here we see it all. Trust me, the tourists take pictures."

The funny thing is, that over the years I have never seen any of the pictures people have taken. That's probably a good thing. I have noticed how old I now look on my driving license, I am sure I don't look that old inside.  Actually seeing the pictures may convince me to stop thonging, Well may be not, it's a habit with witch I am comfortable.

When we were in Miami Beach last spring I was approached twice by people asking for a photo.  First one I was riding a rented bike wearing about a 1" side tan through bikini, in South Point Park (? I think) and a couple was taking photos while their limo waited at the turnaround at the foot of Washington Ave.  The man hollered for me to come over, and asked if he could take a photo of me and his girl.  You bet!

Next one I was on the beach in a y-back thong and a fully dressed Canadian couple approached me and the lady asked for a photo of me and her.  Sure, no prob.  We chatted a minute and  asked where each other was from. 

I got a kick out of both experiences, but my wife didn't think it sounded too neat when I told her later.  She's kind of down on the Miami Beach vacations, and she just thought it sounded weird!

I view it as an extreme compliment when a stranger asks to take my picture when I am wearing a g-string. At one time my wife used to get upset about it mainly because she thought, "You never know where those pictures might crop up." Of late however she takes it in stride, especially since she no longer works in corporate America and does not need to maintain an "image."

There are two ways of looking at it. On the one hand, what's the chance that any pictures will show up somewhere? Not good unless you become famous or run for public office. Like JM Runs, I've never seen any of the pictures that people have taken of me. I have only seen the shots that my wife or I have taken. The other view is that there are so many pictures out there that are out of my control that it does not make any difference. My fate and reputation are sealed.

It's a shame if you can't make in back to Miami if you really enjoy it. Perhaps you could go to a place like Jamaica where the chances of meeting someone you know from the states are romote. Still one year I was down there wearing a g-string on the beach and darn if a fellow who worked on the same floor as I did come up and introduce himself. It can be a small world sometimes.

Most of my experiences with this have been either the obvious guy or girl walking by taking nmy picture or the photographer trying not to be seen, rather than the posed photo.  Since they often want a view of the barest front of the suit, they sometimes will jump up in front of me walking down the beach and snap a photo or two.  If I don't stop they will often comment when I walk by smiling and I will look around and they are snapping a rear view too.  I've had girls use flashes in my eyes on the beach in the middle of a sunny day, obviously not photographers.

For all I know they're laughing at me when they look at them at home later, but WHO CARES? Its not like I've ever see them again.

I remember my very first time thonging in public:  late March 2002, on Hollywood Beach (Florida).  I set up next to a couple of female thongers who at first seemed REALLY frigid.  (By the way, JMRuns, the advice you gave on the old board re: these situations worked perfectly!)  We got around to chatting some and acting friendly, and we eventually noticed a teenage Hispanic girl about 25 yards behind us, openly filming us with a hand-held camcorder.  The first time I go public, somebody films me!  I wasn't embarrassed--I just thought it was funny, and wiggled my butt a little to ham it up for the camera.  My two companions didn't like the attention, though there wasn't any confrontation.  I think the person with the camcorder was more interested in me, though hey--you never know these days.

I've been thonging (actually g-stringing) for 13 years and wearing very small suits for another 14 years before that, I've had the same experiences. Sometimes people will try to look as if they are aiming for the horrizon, and then they will swoop down to take a shot of you. Others times they will pop out from in back of a tree or something a take a quick picture. More often than not they have been cool about it and asked for my picture, which is the best.

And yes, it is a great compliment to be the center of attention!

I personally have never been offended and, in fact, take is as a compliment.  Most people who have posed with me or taken photos of me have complimented my body usually saying something along the lines of "it is so nice to see a man with a good body in simwear which accentuates the body"

I've wondered the same thing? I've had my picture taken once by two women about 200 yards away. I'm sure she got up to go get her camera out of the car at one point. I felt a mix of flattery and of being a circus attraction at the same time. Did she take my picture because I'm "hot" or because she wanted a good chuckle with her friends later. She never asked if she could take the photo. I think it's funny that people want to take a picture of someone (male or female) in a thong -- all important parts are covered. It looks sexy, true, but to me a thong is just not that unusual to warrant a photo for which a laugh or a drool will later be had. As for the photographer, those who take photos of people in thongs, in my opinion, are acting out an  adolescent impulse (some harmless, some for lascivious reasons).

I have often thought on this. I hate to say it but I don't think that everyone on this (or any board) is 100% honest. I further think that some people write/report what they wish would happen. All I know that I have never seen it happen; mind you I live in Los Angeles where we get visitors from all over the world year 'round and particularly in the summer.
What I have seen is people very discreetly take a photograph of someone as they walk by, usually some distance off from them. Only once did I see a man very boldly approach a woman in a g-string who was laying out, on her side, and from the rear he took a very close-up shot of her back side.

Dear armand_galleon, I can assure you that people do take pictures, and do come up and chat. I don't have a wonderful body but I'm fit and tend to be cheerful and friendly.

If you don't think people are asking thongers to pose with them then checkout the link called Webshots in the links section of the board. On webshots I am sure you will fined one or two pictures of young women posed with older men in thongs.

No that's not me in the group. But maybe next week, because last week I was asked to pose with two different groups of teen girls. It was the YMCA youth swim nationals all last week. I know one group was a swim teem and I think the other was too. Who knows were the pictures will popup.

Most photos are taken without people asking, they just do it. Some times descretly, and some times very oviously. Some times they jump up to get a better shot or some times I notice the panning video cam as I run past. As a rule, the only time they ask is when they want me to pose in a group with them.

Being stopped by people, who want a photo with a man in a thong, does not happen every week. I have noticed that it does not normally happen when I am just sunning on the beach, or showering after a run, or just sitting around. For some reason I am only asked to stop for group photos when I am running by for the second time, on the return journey. Maybe they need time to think it over, and vote for one of them to be a spokes women. being stopped twice in a week is rare, a little less than once a month is more usual.

I also try to be a good beach citizen. That not only means picking up any glass I see, but also looking out for groups with a camera:  but not becuase I want a picture of me.   If I see one person taking a picture of another, or a group of others, I will go over and ask if they want a picture of all of them in a group.  Instead of having one or other of them behind the camera, they are all in the picture.  It's amazing how grateful they are.  I have met lots of nice people that way. 

Now that would be the funny shot. A picture of me, in a thong, taking a picture of a group of tourists, all over dressed.  I am often in  that situation.  Some times if it is a group they aske me to take the same group shot on more than one camera.

    My take on this is, It depends. If someone is out and about taking pics, and I happen to be in one, that's fine. If someone comes up to me and asks nicely for me to pose for a pic, that's fine also.

   What's not fine is when someone thinks they're being coy by pretending to be focused on something else when I KNOW it's a pic of me they're after. Once, I was alone with my wife on the topless deck of a Carnival Cruise ship suning and this dirty old couple comes up with their camera (strike one) to look around. "Go stand over there so I can a picture of you" which just so happens be where we are. So we cover up, and for some reason it took a really long time for them to get the shot they were after. Another time on Prince Edward Island we're face down on the sand, and this group with video decides to tell their kids to "Play over there" again right next us. After 10 minutes of rugrats running around and kicking up sand everywhere, we got up and left. (They actually cheered when we did) Yes, That did leave us with a bitter taste.....

(Added 7/11/05) Some have asked "What's the big deal? Why get offended, it's a compliment"  My answer to that is that you never know what that person is going to do with that picture once they get home. My concern is that they're going to post it online somewhere like Webshots, with a snide comment that makes fun, or worse in their own Chat or Personals profile (It's already happened to me) Some of us have jobs that require a certain level of "Profesionalism" that would frown on such overt displays of the body. It's not right, but it's the reality of living in the northeastern US.

That is why my pics I Post will always have my e-mail going across it so that anybody who actually cares to respond will actually get me, and not some imposter....

Well, I looked at the pic of ThongMan in the above link AND read the text and came to the conclusion that the girls were laughing with him , rather than at him - so personally I don't have a problem with that. For obvious reasons it's easy to see negative attitudes to thonging when they're not actually there. On a more general note we've had people ask if they can take our pics and we've always been happy to oblige

A few years ago I have been photographed by a professional female photographer. She saw me walking on a deserted part of the beach in Holland in a very narrow thong from Dore. She had heard about small swimwear but never seen one in real live. She asked me if she could take a few pictures for a French magazine. She showed me her press-card (genuine) and also a contract which entitled me some money when apicture was published. I agreed but only for publication without a recognizable face. She took a few pic's but then I showed her some more daring stuff like a missile, a slingshot and other very small suits. She went haywire and kept on taking pictures. Afterall I had diner with her and 2 month later I received 150,00 EUR and a magazine with my pictures. All in all a very nice experience.
Beside this I have seen people taking pictures a few times but from some distance.

I had my picture taken twice on my last vacation, which I found very flattering. The first time was a sneak picture on Daytona Beach. There were two teenage girls walking the opposite way from me, and I noticed they turned around and quickly ran ahead. This was just an adolescent way to set the stage; the one girl used her phone camera to take pics as the other girl did "glamorous" poses. I could see the camera girl keep an eye on me as I approached, and just happened to take the pic as I was in the background. I discussed this with my wife when I returned to the towel with our lunch which I got at the beach concession trailer. She said that they must have liked what they saw, or they would have just laughed at you (this has been my past experience when there is a LARGE group of teens).
The second incident was a picture request by a group of 20+ year olds that saw me at Apollo Beach (not the nude area). They were laying out when my wife and I came up the beach and I decided to go to the restroom and hit a shower to cool off. When I returned to the beach they asked for a couple of pics. I think it is obvious to everyone in this situation that OF COURSE you are an oddity on the beach. How many other guys in thongs do you see out there? I took this as the same as them going into the drugstore and buying one of those postcards that say "sun your buns in Florida" with some hunk's pic on it. I was flattered to be picture worthy at least, even though age is really taking its toll lately!!

When I was younger total strangers took many, many pictures of me, more than I can count or remember. Now that I'm a "senior thonger" I get fewer requests, but perhaps that might have something to do with where I go to the beach. To get to the part of Ft. Desoto near St. Pete, you have walk a while, and most people don't bring their camera.

I take photo requests as a compliment, and I never say "no." I guess i've disqualified myself from running for public office, but aside from that I quite pleased by the fact that people have taken those pictures. I just wish that I had some of them for my collection!

Ok, because of this thread, I was on the lookout for cameras on this morning's run. The beach was empty, not much sun, to late for locals and to early for tourists. Still, there were a few pictures taken as I ran by. One women moved to kneel right in front of me. She pointed a 35 mill camera with a big lens at me, until I was almost on top of her.

Another couple of cute girls staged a cameo. One held the camera and the other stood up the beach while they waited for me to get near. Then the second one ran to the first one, with me, oops, accidently in the shot. They looked like fun so I stopped and asked if they wanted a picture of them selves together. (Note to guys, This is the worlds best beach pickup line.)

I learnt they were from Chile. The cute older one was actually the mother of the stunning younger one, who was just passing her Chilean bar exam. I don't know if it's a common first name in Spanish but I like the English translation of the daughter's name 'Mary of the Angles'.

So only two groups of pictures that I noticed. There are probably a bunch of sneaky shots that one is never aware of. After all I don't have eyes in the back of my head and I suspect more pictures are taken after I have passed, that's the view many are aiming for.

I think I've shared this before elsewhere on the board but I remember taking a holiday with a male friend and meeting two sisters that we spent a fair amount of time with on the beach and in the evenings - just as friends, hanging out etc. When we returned from the holiday, my friend had his camera film developed and the girls had apparently taken a photo of the two of us heading down to the sea for a game of paddle ball. He was in a speedo, me in a tiny thong. (My friend's girlfriend saw the photo and commented how good I looked!). Neither of us knew the photo had been taken... so who knows if the girls had taken photos with their own cameras as well?! I'm yet to be approached by anyone and I don't know of any other instances of people taking my photo (other than one friend I asked to take a photo of me) but I've no doubt there may well be some others out there. As for what I think about it, I'm not too bothered... so long as I can't be recognised! I still might be famous one day! lol!

I'm puzzled by someone on this board claiming to be "offended" when he is the subject of a photographer.  In the first place, whenever we are anywhere in public, it is my understanding that we're fair game, legally, to be seen and photographed by anyone, no matter what we're wearing.  The only restriction that I know of is that the photo cannot be used commercially without approval from the subject.  But, heck, if someone wants a picture of me for personal reasons, he' s legally entitled to it, isn't he?

I don't get out in a thong very often, but one time when I was on one of Portland, Oregon's river beaches in a thong, two young ladies (teens or early twenties, I'd say) spotted me face-down on a blanket as they strolled along the beach.  Out of the corner of my eye, I saw them stop---a good half-block away---and look at me for several minutes.  Then along came a man, and they actually stopped him and asked him to get a picture of me with their camera.  (I couldn't hear them talking, but it was obvious what was going on.) 

So the guy boldly walked up behind me and snapped away at a distance of probably four feet, then he returned to the girls and gave them back their camera.  They then turned and left the beach.  The mood of these girls was all giggles and excitement!

I was very flattered by this experience!  Not everyone is selected to be the subject of a stranger's camera.  I was certain they wanted the photo of my buns so they could enjoy the turn-on of looking at it later at home.  A guy on the beach in dork shorts would probably have been ignored in favor of me in my thong!  Isn't that at least part of the reason why I'm there, wearing so little?

I normally wear skirts, in a very masculine, bold, outa-my-way-I-own-the-street kind of way.  I'm 64 and my wonderful wife and I have never had so much fun with this in my life, and I've certainly not had the female attention in a half-century of pants-wearing that I am now getting in these skirts.  I should explain that I am a stocky guy with logger's legs, so I am very accustomed, these days, to the typical response I get from females spotting me in "something sexy":  They giggle.  Mature and confident women actually approach me and compliment my style.  But younger females don't know what to do.  They try to act nonchalant, in a very obvious way.  So however I decide to get attention---in a skirt or in a thong---I prepare for the voyeurs to act very silly about it.  It comes with the territory; after all, you usually don't see a guy dressed so provocatively at any time, on the street or at the beach.

And if they're taking a picture, I'm quite flattered to realize that I just might be someone's eye candy for years to come.  Someone I don't even know!  What a head trip.

All I know is this........I'm just about 50 years old and always wear my thong to the beach.  Last March we went to Florida and enjoyed the sun and beaches of St Pete's.  On our last day in Florida, while we were laying on the beach, a young babe came up to us and took my pic with her cell phone.  I wasn't offended in the least.  As a matter of fact, it made me feel great !   I still think of that day and I smile to myself.

I'll second that, Mrever ready.  I'm 56 and last Saturday I had two attractive young women wearing bikinis come up to me and ask me to pose for a picture. I was wearing my Koala Sheer Side Cameltoe at the time, which means that I was wearing almost nothing. They put their arms around my waist and someone else snapped the picture.

It really makes me feal great, and I'd be the last one to refuse a picture on the beach.

I have been photographed many times since I live here in Florida and only wear my skinz g-string to the beach.  I remember one time many years ago I was walking on sunset beach in Treasure Island when two young girls (teenage) had a video camera and they captured my walk on video tape.  Now that was a rush.

I have been photographed several times both posing with someone wishing a photo, and candid as people drove by my house and I was out front in a very small cut rio type bikini. I have even had people drive by and seen them video taping. I have never given it a second thought. I figure if I am out in public, what I do and what I wear is public,  I feel if you are going to wear something that might draw attenetion, whether it be a thong, or a rediculous hat, or anything of that nature, expect someone to want to capture the moment. If you don't want to be photographed, don't be seen in public

Well,

I guess three Brazilian women made my day, and I made their day.  I was jogging in my Speedo thong between the clothing optional and textile area of Sandy Hook (NJ) (about  2 miles) and went right past these three thonged Brazilian women, then noticed they were smiling, so I slowed to say hi.  I was going to turn around to head back, but then one of them asked if I wouldn't mind a photo.  So one of them takes a picture of me with the other two, then asks us to turn around to get butt shots, then another one takes out her camera, all of this where they were giving me thumbs up, putting their arms around me, etc.  I left them my email address so I hope I get some of the shots.  They were all smiles.  I think they were all related to the guy who was walking with them (board shorts) - perhaps the brother.    That much fun should be illegal!

 

Cheers.

I was out washing the car in the driveway wearing anly a royal blue Arizona Rio (micro bikini) from Nu Parr. While washing it a car pulls up with 3 college aged girls and one gets out and asked if she can take a picture of me washing the car in my G String. I told her I don't wear G Strings and she siad "no I mean with that you have on, a speedo or thong or whatever. I told her to go ahead and take the picture and she took three. Then she asked me to turn around and wash the hood so she could take some more. I just went on washing the car and she snapped a few more shots. She commented that this is perfect because you speedo matches the color of the car.  As she thanked me for the photos and got ready to leave I asked her what the photos were for (maybe I should have asked this first). She told me she was doing paper on what people do during the summer and got in the car and they left.  ??????????  So I guess I really don't know what that was all about.

Well I have to firstly admit that I don't wear thongs on the beach but my partner does.  I have noticed that over recent years more people seem to be photographing or filming in her direction. She has never been asked for a photo, but sometimes when I am not lying next to her I can see people get close up for a snap.

A couple this year got within about 3 feet of her and snapped away with their camera phones.  This is even more blatant since it made more noise. She was lying on her side with her top leg up towards her chest and one guy was getting very close around her never regions.   I was in the sea.  He saw me look and then disspaeared.  I think this was a little bit out of order.

Many times when we are playing beach tennis I see guys position there partners for photos, in the line of my girlfriends thong clad bottom.  It's blatant, especially when their apparent subject has already walked off and they are still zooming in on my girls rear!  You can see the camera lens zooming right out sometimes.

I really notice the diffrence in behavior when I am lying next to her and when I am not there.  Sometimes a whole group will stop really close to her and just stare, some even walk closer.   As for the photos, I don't mind:  As long as they are not posted anywhere else with inapropriate comments.  If they are for personal use then I think it is fine.  After all they must think she looks good or they would'nt bother, and I guess thet is a compliment.  

I am always proud to be with her when she has a sexy hong on.  Not only does she look great but I think it says something about her personality and confidence with her body.

Hello,

My first post here. Excellent forum!

I got snapped by a lady whilst wearing a G-string, walking away from her on the boardwalk at Apollo beach in Florida some years back.

I just heard the huge camera she had snap and continued on my way (as any confident thong wearer should........). Be proud of your ass, and be thankful that others enjoy you showing it enough to think it's fit for sharing.

Anyhow, that's the way I view folks wanting to photograph me.

Yep, had a couple photograph me a few days ago at a non-nude beach at Sandy Hook, NJ.  School is in session, so no kids, but a few couples did some double takes.  A group of 3 19-yr old (?) girls who were pretty close by did some discrete snickering, not offensive.   There was one other thonged person, an older women.  Funny we both wore red that day.  (Me: red Speedo thong)

I often get tourists taking snaps from a distance. Some times people will come up and ask me for a picture.

Last week it was a local women who was taking pictures for her photo class. She asked first and then took about 8 of me streaching after running. That was in Black and White, artie you know.

This last Saturday a strange group of people rushed down to the water and took a picture, then formed them selves into a human prymid, then they came over and explaned what they were up to. They were on a scavinger hunt. One of the things they needed as a picture with a tiny bikini. They decided that mine would do and asked if they could get a group shot with me in it. So somewhere there is a picture of a groop of fully dressed people, grinning like idiots, gathered round your's truley in a small string thong. First time I have been an object in a scavinger hunt.
