Re:Fort Lauderdale, Florida ( Ft Lauderdale Beach ) FL

Spring break is over for most universities.  Mixing and drinking with the young women Spring Break crowed was fun. (See picture linked above.)

Last week it was the local schools out for the week. Younger crowd. "Hay Mister, if I give you money will you buy me a case of beer from the store across the street?"  NO  
Still, there are quite a few groups of young women from various collages and universities that have very late spring breaks. 

Today I met a group who were staying at Sunny Isles, so I suggested they visit North Haulover. They seemed quite keen.  You may see them out there during the next couple of days. (One is ghostly white and will remain covered, but the rest are rambunctious and developing a good tan. 

I have been going out to run rather late in the day, often between 11pm to Midday. After running I have been spending a couple of hours  hanging out and walking up and down the beach. Especially at weekends when the beach is crowded.

Other than just having fun, the goal is to make a man in a thong such a common sight the locals don't do a double take, but smile and wave instead, and the tourists just go with the flow. 

I notice it is more local women, or women with children who wear thongs, and I see more men wearing Speedos, often when they are a couple, with the women in a small suit or full thong.

I notice the gay contingent are getting brave enough to walk the main strip in their speedos, but often in pairs, I guess for moral support. Some are even brave enough to hold hands while walking past the crowds of young kids.

I am getting asked more and more by young men, men who are sitting on the beach with young women, where they can buy a suit like I am wearing.
I tend to be flip and say "The internet", This is because I am not sure any of them have the courage to step into one of the local stores that carry them, mainly because they tend to be stores catering to gay men. 

I also get asked a lot of questions about places to go, things to do and where to eat and drink. Maybe I need to crate a web page guide to Fort Lauderdale so I don't have to repeat my self. Still it is fun wondering around and chatting with people, that's why I don't take a towel to sit on my own. That would quickly become boring.

 Had a great time in Ft. L this past weekend. I read all of JM's posts, then ended up breaking all of his suggestions for a variety of silly reasons. We were staying at a place south of the main beach and, as the weekend looked busy, we just took the first parking place we could find which was at the South Beach Park. Then, because we did not want to get too far away from the car and we wanted to rent beach loungers, we just stayed put in that area and thonged . On Saturday, lots of families and children, everyone having a good time, nobody seemed to care what anyone wore. On Sunday, more couples and small groups of adults of all ages; heard lots of foreign languages. Again, mellow and fun, no problems. One day, before the weekend we drove from south to north just to take in the sights. JM, I think I spotted you on a bicycle last Thursday, crossing the A1A at Las Olas.

Good places to park are the small lot across from Swimming Hall of Fame; the bigger lot on Corner of A1A and Las Olas; or if both are full then the large lot under the Las Olas Bridge. (Last right before the bridge when going inland or first right after the bridge when going to the sea.)

The lot you parked in, the South Parking Lot has a ball court, BBQ's, picnic- tables and bathrooms tends to attract large family groups, and some of the sand is not as clean.  Also this lot is cheaper for city residents, if they have a pass.

I did go down to the beach last Thursday so it may well have been me you saw on the bike.  But many people bike to the beach, so it might not have been me. Was I wearing anything distinctive?

JesseV - Could well have been me.

Greenstringer - If that becomes a 'thing' for next year it will be quite amusing. I did notice a lot of enthusiasm from many of the guys as well as the girls, high fives, fist bumps and friendly whoops.  The level of negative reaction, although not non-existent, is very little.  So if some of the more confident guys do wear thongs, if only for a stunt, and the girls love it, it may become a 'thing'.

If it does, I think more of the lads will finally drop their ridiculous board shorts and at least show us the swim team speedos they have been hiding.

It will only take a few hansom young men in thongs to gather a flock of young women.  If it works for an old man like me, then just think how much better it will work for fit young men with a tan.  http://zone.aimoo.com/photo/JM_Runs/Spring-Break-2015-1061405

I don't get it. Why are the woman in a he picture wearing bikinis and not thongs? Don't think it's your location JM, believe it's fanomon of young college kids acting wasted any beach around the world. 

Think society has lightened up about what a male can wear to the beach. Believe a decade ago you JM would of been beaten down by drunk homo phobic college kids seeing how macho they act. Now college guys applaud your thong as wild thing someone can do.

Looks as woman feel at ease following the herd mentality of trying to have fun and having someone lead them to accept a male dressed anyway he wants. Looks like college party goers just encourage us thonger to keep wearing what we do. 

Looks to me society beginning to be more tolerant guys in a thong.

The young women in the picture were down on Spring Break.  They are from up north where thongs are not as common. It is more likely that locals, the women from here and the women from central or South America will be wearing thongs. Not so much the spring break crowd. I think there were more thongs on the local women, away from the party crowds.  

During spring break there were a lot of very cheeky bikinis on the spring break girls, and a few thongs and g-strings but the most common bottom was probably the Victoria Secret ITSY bottom. Cute but not a thong. 

Still there were quite a few girls and women in thongs in the midst of spring break party. Quite a few of whom wanted pictures from the rear of me in my thong, with them in their thongs. Some of the pictures are just a row of bottoms, some are a bit more animated. 

Since I don't carry a camera or phone on the beach I only get a few random pictures, if someone bothers to forward one to me.  I am sure there are much better pictures of us showing our thongs, but I don't have one from this year.

I posted the above picture just because it was fun one. It had a bit of action and showed the spirit of the day.  I have a few more that were sent my way. Pictures with young women and even a few with young men.  Most only remind me, when compared to the young people around me, just how old I am looking these days. 
We need more young men to get enough courage to publicly wear a thong with confidence !

 Love the pictures JM_Runs.  The beach wedding picture reminds me of a time around 8 years ago when I was taking a walk down the beach in only a small yellow thong and ran into a wedding in progress. Don't know if I was caught in any pictures.

The picture was taken at least a month ago. No idea on the make.
A blue one. I have quite a few. Once the tag is removed they become a bit generic.
Most of my thongs do not have labels. Some I recognize the brand if it is a unique cut or has unique hardware, or is a particular print or pattern.
Others are more generic, and unless it has a logo, over time, I will probably forget who I purchased it from.

I buy most of my thongs from ebay.  Most smaller one man swim suit makers in the US use this method to get their thongs listed.
Some of the Chinese vendors occasionally have something interesting. All I can tell you is small, blue with narrow side straps.

I was down the beach for a few hours on Friday and Saturday.  This time of year, when the snow birds start to head home, and the Easter rush is well over, the beach starts getting less crowded during week days. So there were a lot less people out on Friday than Saturday.

However on both days I did spot a few men in g-strings or thongs along the main section of the beach, or in some cases men who had taken their speedo and scrunched it up to be a thong.  I am not sure if it was a result of having seen me out running or waking around in a thong or not.

I was planning to meet a friend who sews her own swim thong suits, often with a contrasting edging, so for fun I wore one of these:

http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/ODAwWDgwMA==/z/AYwAAOSwnDZUAI6b/$_57.JPG

With the label removed and in Asian XL size because that equates to US medium. I was a little disappointed that the bright yellow edging turns dark when wet, because it becomes transparent and lets the blue edge it is covering show through.  Even more disappointed when I realized it was not a temporary problem but the blue color had run.

Still I think this style is one solution to single sided suits that don't stay on.  The Asian XL cut fits me well, and I much prefer the back and front of this than the rather silly one side thongs I have tried.

Said hello to a couple of men in thongs / gstrings on Friday but did not have time to stop to chat because I was meeting a couple of women for lunch. 

Funny story: I first met them one evening at my local bar, Two&, after a group bike ride.  It was after that we agreed to meet up on the beach the following day. After hanging out on the beach, over a late Thai food lunch, they told me they had noticed me earlier in the week.

They had figured I was an interesting man because I had the confidence to wear a thong, and was probably a local because I exchanged waves with the lifeguard as I ran by.

Yet the previous night at the bar they had not yet recognized or associated me with the man they had seen on the beach.

When later planning to meet on the beach on a following morning I told one of them I would be wearing a very small swimsuit and white cap, and she told me to look out for her turquoise bikini.

It was not until we met on the beach they realized the man they had previously seen in a thong was the same one they were chatting up in the bar. Small world.

On Saturday there were a few guys in thongs at various places down the beach.  

A guy I did not recognize was lying out very close to Tower #5, right where I start running from, end, and use as a return base for walking around. 
I thought he might be there because of my recommendation that this section is a laid back spot with a wide beach, lots of space, and a little away up from the family crowds to the South, and yet not as far up the beach as the flood of locals across from the Las Olas parking lots, or the drinkers who hang out in front of the main strip.

I am not normally there in the later afternoons, or for that matter on Weekends, so don't know if he is now a new regular or was from out of town.
I did not want to disturb, but did go by to give a friendly greeting and thumbs up in passing. If you are a board member introduce yourself next time. 

I might be there again this coming weekend.
Even though we will have many Memorial Day extras doing walk on parts as cooler hauling beach party mobs, that section (tower #5). should be both chill and friendly.  It is a spot where you might meet a few of the local women thongers, or they may be a little to the North, up by the strip. Take a stroll. 

One of my newer beach friends makes thong swimsuits for women. I have suggested she start doing some for men too, to which she seemed very receptive. While we both go to the same section of beach we did not become friends until recently because during the week her beach days are almost the exact opposite of my regular days.

After many years of thronging on my home beach I am pretty bold.  Strangers come to town and find a quiet bit of beach and thong timidly, whereas I tend run down the beach in the middle of the day, on a crowded weekend, and then often walk back through the more dense parts of the beach to visit friends or just hang out and make new friends. 

However, I do put on a lose mesh running top when going for coffee across the road, and/or a pair of shorts if going to eat at some of the beach front restaurants.

This weened was extra mad. Saturdays are always a little more rowdy, but yesterday was Memorial Day Saturday.  They closed down the road and setup stages for bands at Las Olas and Sebastian.  In between they had tents for crafts, foods and a good scattering of classic cars. On the beach sand they had bounce houses, slides, sandcastle and hula hoop competitions. Not to mention part of the beach taped off for the sky-divers to land. You have the picture, the beach, road and sidewalks were turned into a Memorial Day carnival. (Found picture that gives some idea http://images1.browardpalmbeach.com/imager/u/745xauto/7001636/10451753.0.jpg )

After my run I walked back North again. A group of beach friends called me over and offered a beer.  I thanked them, said not now, but would take them up on the offer later, when I come back by.

When I did return they were gone, but I ended up talking to two women setup right beside them.  Turned out they were a rather fun mother and daughter. The mother is local but her daughter was just down from NY for a visit. They fed me a few beers and cold ripe lychees.

A little later the mother needed to charge her phone, so we could talk to one of the daughters friends who was trying to find us. We walked up to the road and through the tents and throngs of people.  We saw some electrical outlets on a pole right at the Rock Bar. There was already another women there charging her phone.  If I had a cover up I would have slipped it on before going in, but it was down on my bicycle some blocks away. So being bold I just walked through in with this pretty women at my side. We just walked up and added her phone to the electrical outlets. This was right in the center of the outdoor seating, in the middle of the walkway where people are always going in or out, and with all the tables on each side filled, and a line of people waiting for tables.

I felt a little conspicuous just standing around in a thong, but since I was with an attractive woman and we had something to talk about and do was not that worried, although I did think that any minute now a server would come and tell us we needed shorts, shirts and shoes.  There was some good natured hopping and hollering from a nearby table of eight women, but other than that no problem. We probably spent 15 minutes standing around while we charged the phone, before a manager type came and told us, and the other women there charging her phone, that since we were not buying drinks he did not like us "vamping" his electricity. So we said we may be back later for drinks, and moved on up through the crowds to Beach Place , where we found some more outdoor outlets.

At Beach Place we found electrical outlets at the top of the main steps.  Just beyond that they had put a temporary barricade with a security guard, who was making everyone who passed him put on shirts and shoes. Since we were not going into the rear plaza, or up the stars, he did not bother us. Again we spent about 15 minutes hanging out while the phone charged. The top of the main entrance stairway at Beach Place, underneath the Hooters, is high traffic and not somewhere I would normally hang out, especially on a Memorial Day Saturday, when the place was mobbed. We got a lot of curious looks, but people saw the security guard who was standing about 20 feet away had no problem, so they had no problem either. Funny how that works.

After getting a couple of cokes from the CVS we walked back through the classic cars to the beach.

The daughter's friend managed to find us on the beach, and a little while later we packed up to take everything back to their car.  I helped the mother by dragging her cooler up the beach to the sidewalk, and them battling our way through the crowds passed the stage to get back to the parking lot.  The daughter and her friend were following along behind, apparently observing people's reactions to us as we went by.  They were much amused that people seemed very receptive to thongs, both the women and the men. 

A good day, but a bit more bold around the the restaurants, shops and street vendors than I am normally. It does help to have company. Looking forward to seeing my new friends again soon, well at least the mother, since the daughter has to fly back to NY tomorrow and I am busy doing other stuff today.

However I hope to get out on the beach again on Monday, to enjoy the crazy of Memorial Day.  It should not be quite as crowded because the City Beach Party, with the roads closed, bands, stages, slides, castles, car show, vendor tents, parachute drop, etc. was just for Saturday.

It has been a fabulous Memorial Day at the beach.  I was drinking with friends last night so didn't bounce out of bed very early. Checked my Facebook and discovered my running partner for the morning was also feeling a little hung over, so ended up going to the beach without her.

I was going to wear a red white and blue swimsuit, but I did that Saturday, and wasn't really happy with a couple that I picked out, so ended up wearing a small orange M1R2 from Skinzwear.  It looked like it was going to be a mixture of cloudy and sunny, and the bright orange shows up rather well if it's a slightly cloudy day.

I've got one twisted ankle and one broken foot, but neither seems terribly aggravated by gentle running on soft sand. So I ran north through the crowds that were beginning to gather for Memorial Day.  Quite a lot of friendly hoops and hollers from the kids setting up in front beach place. 

At the top end of my run, where I take a break before returning, a man came over and introduced himself. He asked if I ever got any grief from the police.  I said there will be a lot of police on the beach today because it was more Memorial weekend, but no I never had a problem from the local police or lifeguards. I told him I'd give the lifeguards or waivers I run by and they generally are very friendly bunch. He asked about Delray and Boca, and I told him I didn't have much experience up there because 99% of the time I'm on my local beach.
He said he went to the nude beach sometimes, and thought of himself as a bit of an exhibitionist, but would be worried about reactions to his thonging on a public beach, what friends or coworkers would think if if they saw him on the beach. I told him I'd long ago got over either worry, and although my mother doesn't really approve of old men in small swimsuits, nobody else had a problem. Most people are very supportive.
Sometimes a pretty stupid, although we must've talked for 10 minutes, I realized after he left that I had forgotten to tell him about this message board.

Otherwise it was a pretty uneventful run, until it started to rain rather hard on the way back.  This cooled off the hot sand made mid-day running rather pleasant. The warm shower scared a number of the early partiers is off the beach, many of whom ran across the road to take cover under the overhangs of local businesses. The braver ones huddled under their umbrellas and beach tents until the squall passed and the sun came out again, or just swam in the warm sea until it had gone.

After running, as usual, I took some time to stretch. Then went across the road for iced coffee. Then wandered back up the beach, heading North towards the crowds. The beach was filling up fast.  The police had set up a number of special tents marked with Fort Lauderdale police. They had also brought the horses, ATVs, and lots of extra staff.  In addition there were a number of other local police forces showing the flag. I suppose any time you can get paid to be on the beach, looking at girls in thongs, and get paid double-time because as a holiday weekend, everyone's going to volunteer for the assignment.

There were lots of police everywhere, but I was somewhat surprised when a young SWAT team member in for tactical gear came up to a group I was hanging out with. It wasn't until a couple of the young women jumped up and kissed him that I knew why he had come over. It turns out they knew him were from Weston, which is a city on the western suburbs of Fort Lauderdale. 

There was a serious police presence, but no real serious incidents I know of, at least not before I left about 4:30 PM.  Except - for the bounce house. 

There were two bounce houses further down the beach by the South Beach Park. The young SWAT officer for Weston told us that one of the bounce houses had blown away when a squall came through, with the kids inside, and ejected them as it flew away. A bit scary. He told us it would probably be on the news tonight. He said he taken out his tactical knife and stabbed the other bounce house to death, so wouldn't continue to blow away. Apparently that bounce house didn't have kids in, which was probably a good thing if it was being attacked by a SWAT team willing knives. Later the news said three kids had some minor injuries.

Large Memorial Day crowds. A number of tourists and lots of locals on the beach. I met a couple of old friends and many new people. I met a very interesting women doctor from out-of-state, with a fantastic body.  I met a group of three women who were in town for a few days. Told them about places to go, things to do, and they shared food and drink with me. I should have invited them out this evening, instead of just telling them where to go.

I met lots of women who came over and asked to have photographs with me, and some who wanted me to join in their fun, like joining a game of beach football.  I did that. The women decided that I should join the women's team, so it was me, all the women, all of which were cute and fit, and some of whom were sporting thongs, against the young men.  This is quite amusing, both for us and for the wall-to-wall crowd who were watching the rather rambunctious game taking place along the water line.

We had rain showers often on during the day, and when the shower came through it gave me an opportunity to wander around a bit and pick up any of the empty glass bottles that people had left on the sand.  I try to help pick up trash,  but in events like these what I'm really focus on is the glass bottles.  The beach rake machines are very good at picking up any plastic or cans, but they sometimes smash the glass bottles, which is not good for bare foot runners. Therefore I often wonder through the groups of people grabbing any empty bottles and walking them up to the recycling bins.

Although I am sure there are some young men who don't like the sight of a man in a thong, that is fast neutralized by all the young women who flocked over to talk with me, have their picture taken, and encouraged me to join them in dance, games or general fun. A lot of they young guys tell me they respect my confidence and give high-fives and fist bumps.  You just have to be fearless among the younger party crowd.

[ Edit to add link to picture someone found on the web http://iconosquare.com/p/993115945573282711_1488967811 ]

If anyone is in beach retail, take note that every time I am on the beach several guy come over to ask where they can buy a thong.

Thanks for a great day folks. Thanks to my old beach friends, and my new beach friends, and to the people who gave me food and drink.

Down here there are a few local "sand bars" in the intercostal waterway that turn into chill boat party places on the weekends.

Sometimes these become a little more wild as people put out word that this weekend will a special party day. 

Each April, when the local university has it's own spring break, Lake Boca gets a little wild with an event called Boca Bash.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=191&v=7hGlgv0LFmU

Like many of the boat parties that happen throughout the year, to get to one you need a boat, or a friend who has one.

Another good one is the Columbus Day regatta behind Elliot Key, south of Miami.

Good to hear that. These days I don't run as far North as 18th. I have some ankle problems so normally only go as far North as Sunrise.
I prefer the wider beach south of Las Olas, around 5th South. (Hall of Fame).

 Someone sent me a PM about facilities along the beach. 

There are only three public toilets that I know of: 
(a)  By the sand in the middle of the South Parking lot, across from Baha-Mar Marina.
(b)  On the main strip, across the road at the Beach Place, past the shops, at the back of the court yard.
(c)  About 1/4 mile North of Sunrise Blvd, in the beach entrance to the park, where there is a crosswalk and tunnel between park and beach.

However, if you are a customer of one of the restaurants, bars, coffee shops or hotels they normally let you use their toilets.

There are fresh water showers up and down the beach, every few hundred feet.
This is city water and safe to drink. 
Locals can be seen emerging from the sea and walking up the beach to the showers, to rinse of the salt, before returning to their towels.

I did not run this week because I am trying to let my ankle heal, so it did not matter that I got out to the beach rather late in the day to just walk along the waterline.

As I was about to leave, just starting to putg on my tank top,  I spotted a Google street view car coming down the road.
So I flipped off the top and put it on the bike's rack, leaving me in a thong when the street view car passed.

Childishly amusing, since I will probably be blurred out by their censors.

The old Tropic Cay hotel and pool bar, one of the last old hotels actually located on the beach is closing.
Yesterday was the last hurrah, the last day the pool bar was in business.  They had two live bands and I had a good time.
Up to the end they kept their prices the same as the old days, for example a stiff rum and coke was only $3.

I have not mentioned it much, even though for me it has been one of the thong friendly places on the beach.  A few of reasons, (a) Because it can get boystrous and sometimes there are some drunk and stroppy red necks, (b) because I would prefer people to thong on the beach rather than around a pool, and (c) because it was a bit of a private hideaway for the locals.

Here we are closing down the Tropic Cay, with style: http://zone.aimoo.com/photo/JM_Runs/Tropic-Cay-1063673

Will miss this place.  One of the original unpretentious beach joints.

Good shot, JM, but ohmigod, is the shirt you sold me like yours that see-thru?  I wear it pedaling to the beach over my navy blue Speedo thong, sometimes just a string.  Hmmmm, maybe that's why so many ladies smile my way.

In normal light it is not that transparent.  This was shot with a flash, late in the afternoon, when it was already a bit cloudy. I think the flash tends to make things a lot more transparent than when in natural lighting. 
The sun was setting on the other side of the bar, behind the clouds, behind the palm trees in the distance, so a good part of the light is from the flash. It does not look like a flash picture because it was a her camera phone, and the flash is not that bright in daylight, or even at dusk, so you don't get that flash glare, but it does tend to make things more transparent. Happens a lot on runway photography too. 

I posted the same photo to my Facebook page.  Like I have been saying, after a few comments and likes in the first 24 hours it soon becomes old news. Quickly dropping off the bottom of everyone's social media feeds.  Photos today, when posted on social media pages, even wild ones, have a half life of a day or two at best.

I don't think small suits attract women.  I think self-confidence attracts women.  

If you come here and wear a small thong, thinking that will attract women, you may get a few smiles and thumbs up, possibly a complement or two, but not much else.  
It is not the size of the suite, but the confidence with which you were it.  Thonging publicly, without fear, just takes practice. Get your butterflys under control and just go for it.

Hold your head up.  Hold your head up and look people in the eye, and smile an honest smile. Be seen you be having fun.
Your laughter and smiles can help overcome your fear and butterflys. 

Even after years of practice, sometimes I still have to remind myself to hold my head up, smile and be friendly to all. It makes the day better.

 JM is absolutely right:  "I don't think small suits attract women.  I think self-confidence attracts women."   "It is not the size of the suit, but the confidence with which you wear it."   Quiet self confidence, respect and consideration, a recurring theme in most of JM's posts.  That's good advice regardless of the situation

I don't take a camera or phone to the beach.  So here are some shots from Google views that show why I like the wide beach South of Las Olas, around tower #5, (Se 5th Street and A1A).

https://www.google.com/maps/views/view/102138189668931224136/gphoto/6077330455605390866?gl=za&heading=55&pitch=80&fovy=75

This panorama a little north of tower #5,  but you can still see how wide the beach is, compared to the beach further north. See how un crowded, even though this panorama was taken about 2pm. 

But it won't be this empty on the 4th of July weekend.  Bands on the beach and fireworks at 9pm.

4th of July was a blast. The beach was packed all day.

Each year we have a large fireworks display from a barge they tow out from the port.
This means the beach near Las Olas, from tower #4 to tower #9 gets packed.
To ensure a prime patch of front row sand some friends of mine had turned up at 9am.

I walked around all afternoon, picking up trash, meeting people and having a bit of fun.
Got given drinks, pizza and chicken wings by various groups of people and random fans.

Stayed for the Stayed for the Fireworks at 9.  A red white and blue day. http://zone.aimoo.com/photo/JM_Runs/4th-of-July-1063779

Some guy has a flicker photo stream with a few thousand pictures of girls in bikinis and thongs, mostly shot on the beach, or beach sidewalk in Fort Lauderdale, with some from volleyball courts on South Beach or other South FL venues.

I am sure someone with a fast internet connection can figure out the best.
This one is a good start

Some of our lifeguards are not hard on the eyes

 JM_Runs.  I attended Sunsplash and stayed on a few days thonging on Sebastian Beach.  I want to say thanks for the bicycle information and bike ride routes you told me about when we met on the beach.  I'm already looking forward to doing the "all right-turn ride" next July.  Thanks again and see you in July 2016.

 Good thong day! Went to the beach at Lauderdale By the Sea Sunday, Sept. 13. This is at the Commercial Blvd. intersection. In the space of about 3 hours, spotted  8 ladies in thongs on that  beach. Most I have seen in several years in such a short period of time. Lets hope this a trend for the future!

 I will be heading down next week and will be able to hit the beach that Saturday. Will I be on wearing a bright colored but see through g string. You can see from a distance the color but up close or if wet it is transparent.

Cutthroat, Fort Lauderdale, even in the middle of the off-season, is a lot more crowded than the beaches you frequent, like Sanibel or Bowmans. 

I suggest that you DO NOT wear a transparent or see-through g-string on the beach in Fort Lauderdale.  On any part of the beach there will be people around you, and people waking by all day long. 

This is a fun beach, and good for long walks to see all the folk, but you need to have your package covered in something that is not see-through.  

We have developed a good working relationship with the life-guards and the police, and don't need flashers to spoil that. 

Unlike the remote beaches you have been frequenting on the West Coast of Florida, our beach is in the middle of a major city, with frequent lifeguard towers and patrols. Even in the gay section they are likely to look down on you if you strip to a transparent g-string, even if you do look like the Greek god Adonis. 

Seriously, wear something that covers. It can be small, and then you can talk a walk all the way down the beach without fear, or running the risk of arrest. Our police are polite, until they decide you are a nuance, and then they can get quite rough. They might give you a warning but may not. If they think you were intentionally flashing they won't hesitate to through you in jail.

I love how a clarification question gives you the "f-in" right to get on your little pedastool. You are a pompous person who thinks he can dictate what is or is not ok. Insinuating that I am a flasher will buy you a one way ticket to the ER.

I own a MS poser thong. When I shower off at the c/o beach my suit shows off my contours, yet the color of the material stays true. Same goes with my Dore bulge thong. Neither suit is lined and show of the details when wet, but they are not sheer. 

I do agree with JM anything transparent thong is just nudity with support. I see guys sporting white cotton undies, and when wet, well we know the story.

Suppose what JM means is wearing a sheer thong is about the same as being nude on a crowded beach, the same a flashing, but maybe with a kind of camouflage if you look not nude from a distance yet nude when up close.

Guess I had experience wearing a worn out white speedo while swimming in a gym pool. If no one had closely observed  I would have got away with it, but a gym associate did observe and later she got upset about being subtly "flashed".

There is a different standard for women for I see them wearing wornout old swimwear, where the chlorine has eaten away the fabric. I've seen aureoles shown sheer through one piece swimwear, pubic hair, entire backsides and many woman aren't aware of it. But for men you need to stay covered. Pulling out your genitals is flashing, and that is illegal in public. There is a forum for that type of behavior, which I'm no part of.

There is a difference as being a nudist with liberal genuine happy mindset not ashamed to show your body off, compared to a sexual flasher getting his kicks. There is a line to be drawn, and some here suggest your intentions are dubious.

JM is trying to state that wearing such sheer thongs can be misinterpreted, which unfortunately puts all thongers in the same category, as pervert or predator, by the closed minded folk and red necks.

Wear what you will, but don't be angry suffering consequences of Fort Lauderdale finest to change your mindset. Take it as constructive criticism suggesting you don't wear sheer thongs on textile beaches.

I have experience in getting stopped from wearing a Dore bulge thong at the gym pool and unlined tangas. Sooner or later it will catch up to you and the rules may be changed so no more thronging will the law. They differentiate a modest swim thong to extreme lingerie..

There would be nothing worse then a new law banning thongs on that beautiful beach front. Go to Clearwater and see what I mean. Why the ban over there? I'd like to know what started it.

JM has my support.  His post was 110% correct and I find nothing pompous about it.  "Ex-Member" is an example of what "Thongalactic" (sp?) was complaining about ... people making it into a dick board instead of a thong board.

Saturday and the weather is perfect. A good end to a rather rainy week.
I ran North around 10AM, and walked back South to get iced coffee. Chatted with the kids doing slacklineing in the park, and spent the rest of the afternoon walking the beach, up back two or three times.  Biked home around 4PM.

There was very little trash for me to pickup, because this morning was on of the annual beach cleanup drives: Teems of teens with gloves and garbage bags all over the place. Thanks ! 

There were many women in thongs, and many more in the next best thing. Difficult to make a clear distinction these days. There were a few men in thongs, but few and far between.

Met a group of very attractive young women in thongs and small swimsuits, Floridians in town for a bachelorette party.  Got into an interesting conversation about a running bet one has, on getting it on in unusual places. Her latest conquest, a bobcat on a construction site. 
Later met a group of guys who were in for a bachelor party. Both groups asked for suggestions, and I ended up suggesting the same bar to start at. Tonight you will find both groups living it up on Las Olas.

Right now the setting sun is shining through my West facing windows. Perfect end to a good day at the beach.

 Hopefully the wedding parties were for different couples, imagine how awkward it could be if the grooms party found the brides party acting wild and crazy.  (Esp. if the grooms mother was leading the wildness :)

The scorching heat and humidity of the summer has been tempered by fall. This weekend was perfect: Hot but not too hot, bright sun but with a few scattered white puffy clouds, breeze off the land smoothing out the clear water of a rising tide. 

This week we had the finals of the FIVB World Sand Court Volleyball Championship matches.  Played in a special stadium on the south end of the beach by the old Yankie Clipper.  They erected a massive temporary stadium, complete with buildings and even a place with a wall of glass windows and doors facing the ocean.  All built on the sand, just for the event. Huge bit of temporary engendering.  http://www.fivb.org/en/BeachVolleyball/viewPressRelease.asp?No=57878&Language=en

I spent time on the beach on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. On previous days the stands were not packed. However today, when I wanted to see the mens final on Sunday afternoon, I got there too late, the main stadium was already full to the max. You might have seen the final on NBC Sports. 

Outside on the beach they had a large screen with viewing space for a few hundred more.  So were were standing around watching the big screen when we realized that as well as the video from inside the stadium they had TV camera's wondering around shooting the us beach goers out side the stadium. When they did crowed shots sometimes we could see our section on the big screen. So if you had an eagle eye you might have seen me in a lime colored thong, chatting with the Red Bull bar girls, or standing on the sand watching the outside TV feed.

Although sponsored by Swatch you might have been mistaken to think Red Bull was the primary sponsor.  Not only did they have their tents, coolers and inflatable arches all around, but also a plane in the sky doing stunts.  I did not buy a cocktail from the Red Bull tent as they were $20 each!

The Brazilians were so convincingly hammering the American team, both by perfect blocking and the Americans making a lot of unforced errors, that I got board and wondered off back up the beach. 

After a long walk North and back, picking up trash along the way, I ran into some beach friends who gave me beer and a shot. Hung out with them for a bit, during which we had a very short soft rain shower, then the sun was back out for the rest of the day.
Later I ended up partying with some Venezuelans until dusk.
I don't take a camera or phone to the beach, but in this case they texted me a picture, so I posted it in my profile for the rest of you.

As you can see we are still partying as the sun is about to set. Another good day on the beach.
