Interesting article.  Thanks for sharing.  I would like to visit one of the liberal Caribbean islands someday. That sounds like a blast!

 Two observations about the dork shorts in Jamaica:

Some resorts are marketed in specific countries, so the people on the beach tend to dress like they come from there.

Sometimes you have to lead by example, and others will follow. If you want to wear a thong, someone has to be bold enough to go first. 
Once one or two do others will follow.

 Bogbody12,Regrettably you did not do your homework before you holidayed in Jamacia. If you and wife had desires of wearing thongs you might have done better by going to North Korea since they are more thong tolerant of clothing more risqué than dork shorts.  With the myraids of info sources (most specifically the thong centered repository of current attitudes of places thong friendly or intolerant).  As a world traveler and university educated geographer I always use current first hand travel accounts, travel guides, and the internet.  Why anyone would ever patronize resorts and countries that are thong intolerant as well as homophobic and dangerous...  Well as an adult you should make informed decisions.  I would never entertain wasting one penny in a country or resort that does not accept and accommodate my wishes.

I understand wearing a thong to the beach when you live close to the beach and there aren't any nude beaches around; but when you live near a nude beach or you're traveling anyway, why not just go to the nude beach?  There are so many to choose from these days.  We just returned from a week at Hidden Beach (Mexico) and it was wonderful.  I thought about putting on my thong to go walk next door, but then I thought, "Why?"
BTW, Hidden Beach is going to be rebuilt on the south side of El Dorado Seaside Suites by May 2018.  That area will be a huge improvement because it will have an actual swimming beach.  The new Hidden Beach will have 60 units that will be ultra-luxurious based on what they showed us in the new El Dorado Seaside Suites (new building -- old El Dorado is now Sensamar).  They are also building a second Hidden Beach resort in Jamaica.  My information comes from Exotic Travel, which showed us actual plans and is not just hearsay.
My wife and I already have to travel in order to go to the beach.  Since we know nude beaches in Florida, California, and Mexico, the need to wear a thong is getting less and less.

 I was at RIU Montego Bay for one week early december and I didn't was a thong men or women. Saw some bikinis but was very conservative I had visited some all hotels in Jamaica and use to v=be very conservative. The only place that I recommend and you will have a blast wearing a thong during the week its Hedonism but you need to know that everything goes there and you are going to see some PDA around the beach and pool after sunset

 As of a year ago you could wear thongs at Firefly in Negril. They used to have a clothes optional beach,  but that changed when ownership changed hands about 3 years ago.. My wife and I  have been there a few times since and we've both thonged with her going top free. Sure, you get a few looks from passers-by but it's legal.

 Sitting here on the beach in front of the Hyatt on Palm beach-
Thongs and cheeky bikinis common on the the women.  Mostly dork shorts with a few trunks and briefs for the men.
I couldn't get the courage up, so I have been wearing briefs.  On the plus side, I think the wife wants to make this an annual trip (somewhere warm)

 Don't wear a thong in Jamaica. They're homophobic and like to pick fights.

 I never had a problem in Negril, other than some comments about my "banana hammock" shouted by a bunch of drunken New Yorkers on the beach. Not bad considering we've been there 8 spring vacations in a row!  Most of the spring visitors in Negril (other than at Superclubs) are from Canada or Europe--no problem mon!

 well is time to start looking for a holiday destination around the caribbean mexico maybe the dominican republic.
it has to be at least speedo friendly but hopefully thong friendly for both myself and the wife.
all inclusive on the beach and not full of youngsters.
any help and ideas would be great.

 Excellence Resort, Punta Cana. All inclusive, adults only. We stayed there last November, wore a thong or g string the entire time. We did not go to the main pool but went to beach every day. Even walked up the beach between resorts and went nude. Several ladies in thongs, no men but lots of bikinis. The next resort up had a few other guys in thongs. If we do it again we'll pay for a room with a rooftop pool and just go nude the entire time.

 So, I've stayed on St Martin and/or st Bart's each of the past few years. It is, or at least it was, the best place to thong in the Caribbean in my opinion. -Although, I have not been to all the islands yet. I would like to plan another another trip, but it seems hurricane Irma has made those destinations impossible right now. It's a horrible tragedy and I wish everyone the best down there as yet another hurricane is on the way...
Does anyone know of the 'next best' alternative island to thong on while they rebuild? I appreciate any feedback, but first hand experience is preferred...Thanks

I'm not sure how all of the islands made out with the storm. I do know, from first hand experience, that St Martin will not be available for some time to come. It is mostly destroyed.
