I am straight and only wear thong as underwear. I  believe that wearing thong has nothing to do with  sexual orientation.

You forgot a category: bi-sexual guys, like me. I really think I'm not the only one that has a soft spot for both men and women! I wear thongs on a daily basis and I also wear them on the beach (if appropriate).

I agree with  x1x :  wearing thong has nothing to do with  sexual orientation. However, i think that some straight men don't try thong because they are afraid to be considerated as gay men whereas gay men are not afraid to be considerated to be straight men !

 I'm gay and I wear thong underwear and swimwear, but not all the time. Often I wear very skimpy bikini briefs (narrow front, 1/2" sides) for both. I'm really turned on by the skimpy posing suits bodybuilders wear.

I wear thong swimwear in our hot tub, but I've yet to wear thongs on a beach. But on the other hand, I don't get to the beach very often!

Wearing thongs doesn't make you gay. Wearing thongs doesn't mean you're gay. Only ignorant people assume that every guy they see wearing a thong is gay.

I wear thongs because I can't stand the constriction of underwear around my upper thighs. Briefs, even high-cut bikinis are not comfortable. Boxers bunch and I always feel I am falling out the fly. My sexual orientation is gay. I think because I don't have to worry about being perceived as effeminate it let me be more open to trying riskier styles of underwear to get comfortable. The straight guys on here clearly don't worry about the popular prejudice that thongs are feminine somehow. I don't want to have to constantly dry clean suits if I can't get the last 3 drops when I pee so I wear underwear. Kind of a simple equation. I wear thong swimsuits when possible, because I can't usually sun naked.

I'm identify myself as gay even though I'm technically bi. I wear thong underwear and swimwear, wear string bikini underwear more than thong underwear and wear thong swimwear every chance I get. Usually the most I'll wear is a Speedo Solar, but I have worn dork shorts for work events where there's a pool involved. My co-workers don't need to see my junk.

Funny thing, I just spent 3 days at a Palm Springs Male Resort and didn't see one other guy in a thong in 3 days, other than one who put one on for me. :-) I personally think that thong wearing is split pretty evenly among gay and straight guys just like boxers, briefs and everything else. I don't think thongs could possibly reflect anyone's sexual orientation. It just takes balls to wear them in public. And personally, I LOVE my HOT STRAIGHT and BI brothers in thongs! WOOF guys! :-)

I'm straight and have worn thong underwear and swimwear exclusively for about 24 years now.
There have been times where a thong swimsuit would have been inappropriate so I went for a speedo. 
One of my ex GF's was not keen on my thonging so I wore speedos around her for swimming and went commando in the underwear department, if I can't wear a thong, it's nothing at all!! If I was out tanning without her it was always a thong.

I'm straight, at least that is what my wife says and I trust her in that. I wear thong and string underwear 24/7. When I was on the beach in Europe I wore strings or thongs if I was not naked.

I've never really been able to fully understand the need for people to define sexual preference as a personality and social determining label. It's slightly unfortunate that everyone's seen to be straight until they default to the other side. I know we obviously have a predisposition to being attracted to the opposite sex due to procreation, but why does that have to be so limiting for the the copious amounts of sex that we have for enjoyment and not reproduction? stupid society.

I for one, am in a monogamous relationship with a beautiful woman who I love dearly. If you want to call this straight, then go ahead. I wouldn't have ruled out bisexuality except for the fact that I think finding a partner of the same sex, somewhat limits your chances of procreation (and i'm very pro-procreation!). Plus we started dating when we were fairly young and unknowing. I wouldn't sleep with another woman any more or less than I would another man and would never cheat on my partner.

to be fair though, there probably is a proportional link between sexual preference and underwear choice. getting unbiased data would be impossible though.

Straight man, but I have to say that the sexual impowerment of a thong or g-string is undeniable. My view is that the language of design and sensuality has no gender and that both can appreciate it without the fear of labeling. Started buying skimpy underwear and thongs about four years ago. I can safely say that I've purchased over $1500 on various pairs. Totally insane.

 I'm sure I potsed on this thread yesterday but my post seems to be missing.
Anyway, I'm straight and married. My public thonging is about self expression and exhibitionism and my sexuality has no bearing on it so far as I'm concerned. 
I'm very open minded and enjoy looking at and flirting with beautiful people whether they are male, female, straight or gay and enjoy them all looking at me! I must say though, catching the admiring eye of a man gives me the best buzz. 
And by beautiful I don't mean necessarily those most blessed with good looks. To me beautiful people are people who are comfortable with themselves and have a individual line in self expression. I.E. not celebrity clones or fashion victims.

i am definately hetero and love g-strings on either sex - as swimwear or underwear or whatever ... the ability to catch sun and feel confident and perhaps sexy also in a micro garment is very alluring to me for reasons i do not know fully ... yet enjoy immensely .. now i find most of my undies and swimmers are thongs or g-strings or micro bikinis and they are strewn all around the house so theres never a problem finding one, just which one to wear ???

I'm straight and wear thong underwear, but I'm pretty secretive about it (only my wife knows). I think the idea that wearing a thong makes you gay is slowly changing, but it's going to be quite a while before it's mainstream (women can't really even wear a thong to a lot of beaches in the USA right now so it's definitely totally out of the question for men). I'd absolutely love to wear a thong on a beach, but unless I buy my own personal island where I'm guaranteed privacy I'd say that it's probably never going to happen.

 It's very possible. There are quite a few beaches in this country where it is acceptable, not counting clothing optional beaches. Just got to do a little research, which this board is quite the trove for info and has helped me in the past.

Just joined the site today - straight and started wearing thongs when my girlfriend (now wife) put me onto them. Sexual empowerment is one reason, but also the coolness factor in summers.

I’m 56, married 30+ years, with 3 grown kids, and I’m bi.  I have been wearing thongs exclusively for underwear and swimwear the past 20 years.  I started wearing for at least 10 years before I discovered I was Bi.   My wife got me started wearing a thong swimsuit,  She said she would not wear her thong to the beach until I start wearing a thong to the beach.  I tried one on in the store and could believe how comfortable it was, then at the beach I was surprised on how fast it dried (no more dragging wet sand into the car), and how much better tan I got.  After that first thong day at the beach I tossed all of my Dork Shorts in the trash and replace them with thongs and minimal swimwear.   I did the same with my underwear.  My only regret is I didn’t change to thongs sooner – My choice of underwear and swimwear is based on my comfort and tan.

JM_Runs - I had to chuckle when I saw the popup when you log on.  Part of what you said was " Close up crotch shots, nudity and woddies are NOT appropriate for avatars, this is NOT a gay boys dating site and NOT an adult website."

Anyone who visits this site would probably think we were all gay.  The website is probably 98% men.  I clicked on several avatars on today's posts and you do see lot's of crotch shots and of course lot's of bare ass.  Then you see the man's friends who all have pictures of their bare ass and crotch shots on the individuals profile page.  I am not homophobic but the site sure looks gay to me lol.  I don't accept friend request because if my wife saw it she would wonder why all these pictures of men's asses and crotch shots were on my profile page.  The sterotype of men wearing thongs is that we are all gay (not that there is anything wrong with being a gay man).  At first glance I am not so sure this site does much to change anyone's mind.  If you say you are straight then why do all your friends on your profile page show their crotch and bare ass lol.  Hope I don't make anyone angry - just thinking out loud.  I do enjoy reading comments and posting here.  I don't care about the pictures but I can see where it would re-enforce stereotype about all male thong wearers being gay

 Ya, I'm gay and I love my straight thonging brothers too and could care less if a guy is straight or gay, but if I was not familiar with this board I would think it was a gay thongers networking site at first glance. What matters is for the straight guys who are here, not to care. Be confident in  your individuality, masculinity and sexual orientation and live your life as the unique individuals that you are.

 The raison d'être for this boards existence is three fold.  To share information on what beaches are thong friendly, To encourage and support people who wear thongs on public beaches and To exchange information on thong brands and vendors.

While there are many more men who are members than women that is because most women have the confidence to wear a thong on the beach. If they want to they just do it, and mostly no one complains. 

It is the men who seem to need help. Many want to wear a thong swimsuit but are TERRIFIED that other people might find out and might disprove. Heck half the members are still getting over the idea that it is ok to wear thong underwear without their mothers, wives or girlfriends written approval.

The pedomance of men on the board is not because gay men wear thongs, it is because far more male thong wearers need and seek out a support community like this. Whereas women just go to the mall and get a pack of thongs when they are out grocery shopping. The number of men seeking support speaks to the intolerance of men in thongs at some public beaches.

Obviously I would like to see more women participate in the discussions, but not many do, for understandable reasons. (a) They don't need the emotional support, mostly their husbands or boyfriends say "You look hot in your thong swimsuit", (b) While some old ladies may disapprove of their thong swimsuit most of the men on the beach approve and (c) The harassment experienced by some female contributors to this board by men who should know better. - Asking for personal pictures - Wanting to know where they thong and at what time - Demanding that they prove they are really a women, etc.

Also women tend to use this board diffidently than men, not all but most.  Men want to know ALL about thongs, and read lots of threads and posts. Women tend to be interested in only one or two beaches, or one or two subjects. They come and search for the thing they want to know about, read the posts and then leave. They are not trying to control the universe or influence the mindset of others through internet posts from their basement.

Fundamentally I think we have far more men as members because they need the emotional support our online community provides, so as to overcome any disapproval they might encounter, both the real and perceived.

A women can walk past the beach front stores at any beach resort and one of them is very likely to have several thong swimsuits she can try on. The problem is choosing the right one. In the same place a man will often find that none of them have men's thongs, or if they do they are hidden away and even then a very limited selection. So the men tend need to exchange information on where to find bricks and mortar stores that have a good selection.

While the above survey is only a tiny sample size, compared to the thousands of members on this board, at the moment it still suggests 86 percent are straight. I would guess this is somewhat similar to the general population.

When it comes down to it we are talking about wearing thong swimsuits on the beach, not who we sleep with.  While some may still make the mental leap to conclude ones choice in swimsuit shows ones sexual orientation that is exactly the stereotyping this message board is out to overcome.

Great post thong_jock! I too have straight thonging buddies (in fact I have more of them than gay by far) and each one of them I've met because of a thong discussion first and we've taken it from there. They're all wildly different and as people in general are wickedly cool and accepting and not just of thonging, but sexuality, belief system, profession, work ethic...whatever. What's not to love about that? A couple of them I am thinking of right now are very much in the "You would NEVER guess he wears a thong" category and I think that makes it even more cool. I've always said that underwear and swimwear in particular make a statement about the wearer's mindset and I enjoy learning people's motivations and desires as to why.

Anyways...again, thanks for putting that out there.

I'm not sure what this poll accomplished. Four categories? And it was observed that you missed the category of those who "play on both teams". And it was also observed that linking underwear/swimwear choices to sexuality is nonsense.Every year the local LGBT community has summer and fall "splash" events at the local nude venue on a lake. A party barge is hired and a big crowd shows up. Wouldn't you expect them to exploit the opportunity to sun and swim nude? Some small number do. But their is a surprising large number who show up head-to-toe in polyester and never undress. Another number of guys wear dork shorts. And worst of all, there are guys sporting around in their "tighty whities"! I was socializing with some nice men from out of town, we were all nude, and someone observed that it appeared we were the only nude people. There were a few young women topless, but that was about it. If you looked in the right direction, it looked like a Baptist Sunday picnic! So don't try to "pigeonhole" people based on sexual orientation and underwear/swimwear choices.

Once again JM_Runs hits it out of the park. I think he's spot on on all fronts. Also I think GymThongGuy makes a few excellent observations that I'd agree with 100%. And Pikeman- I think that's the point. Just because you wear and like thongs says NOTHING about your sexuality. I know my good gay friends are more likely to be upfront about it if they are into thongs because they have already dealt with being in a minority group (in society) that is ofern picked on or ridiculed. That's tended to make them strong, independent thinking and acting people who are not afraid of standing up and being heard for what and who they are. We need those traits in the straight guys who love their thongs as well.
