When I went in 2007 I was on a small, quiet beach, away from the main party beaches north of the Panaji. I wore a Sunup/Sundown thong under my wetsuit, which was quite visible when pulling the boat out of the water. Without incident. Later, I wore my Sunup/Sundown V-string on the beach, and did get pestered by a local man who seemed excessively interested in it and me (I didn't mind telling him where I got it, but I drew the line at being offered a massage).
