So NOW you r 50/60 YO and still wearing thongs to beaches and public places...  
Is your body type an issue for outsiders? Does a Gee/thong still look O.K on you?
I see so many bad comments about us older thongers, we need to make a positive statement on our body image!!!
We are not bad people!

I've never seen anyone else, male or female at an Olympic pool wearing a g-string, so I have to confine my comments to the beach. Even then I can't remember ever being at the beach and there being a similarly clad, similar physique younger guy there at the same time (ie. a scientific control). Short of asking an objector exactly what it is they consider to be the problem, it's difficult to determine what part age plays. The questionable "There's children present" line that often pops up and the less frequent but even sillier "There's women present" further confuse the situation.

On the basis that just about all the guys and gals I've ever seen in thongs or g-strings are in reasonable shape, physique has not been an issue. I suspect though if someone was very overweight they would attract attention. On a purely personal basis, as I don't recall any noticeable variation in comment frequency from when I was a late teen till now, I'd not give great weight to age as a factor. If pressed for an answer, I'd say 80 to 90% of the comments are simply due to being a guy in a g-string and 10 to 20% due to being in a g-string regardless of gender.

With regard to "bad people", there is unfortunately still the occasional moron who equates a guy in brief swimwear with child molester; and nothing anyone says is ever going to change his (yes, it's virtually always a male) opinion.

Just turned 70, and I'll be stringing at the beach in Florida again this year when we head down there next month for 'The Season' (i.e., till mid-April).Like Grabeach, no more and no less comments than when I was much younger, and that's even after taking my stringing mainstream.  I'm a regular on the neighborhood family beach now, so folks have probably gotten used to the old fellow who hangs out nearly naked every day.  I like to think, too, that part of the acceptance is that I'm a fairly distinguished-looking older gentleman who minds his own business and doesn't get in folks' faces.  I'm an oddity (the only bare-butt male in sight), but easy to give a pass.  Also probably helps that I'm in the best shape I've been in my whole life, so fairly easy on the eyes.  


When will I decide to cover up due to old age?  Don't know, will have to wait till I get there!

 Well, I have been in the AARP club for a while.  I'm 56 and I still wear thongs as much as possible with no issues from my outsiders. I have thonged at hotel pools and beaches without any big issues.  My bodytype is tall 6ft. 5in. and I have been an athlete for most of my life until bad knees slowed down my activity. I was thin but muscular when I was in my best shape in my 20's & 30's. During that period I tipped the scales at 235 lbs. with 7% body fat, now I'm pushing 270 lbs.  I like to think I still look good for wearing my thong or g strings, but I know I need to drop the muffin top around my middle.

SlidingG - you may have just turned 70 and might look like "a fairly distinguished-looking older gentleman" wearing a business suit and tie but on the beach you look more like a very fit mid 50's.  That's what happens when you train seriously year in and year out.  The lesson for the rest of us is that it is never too late to start.

 I am 64 years old and I have been wearing thongs since my mid-forties. Thongs are my preferred beachwear and have worn them on many beaches along the East Coast of the US and Hawaii. The big exception is when I go to a nude beach, such as Gunnison in NJ; then, of course, I wear nothing.

No entries from people who have met me on the beach or at Sun Splash, that would be an unfair advantage.

 I will be 71 next birthday and I still wear g-strings on the beach and go cycling every morning to the local pool in just a bikini (old style - 6mm side straps - not speedo type!)Never had a bad comment; cops usually wave hi as I always wear a helmet (compulsory here), ladies mostly smile and say hi, blokes usually look away as if they were unseasy. Can't figure out why!Regards to all you people out there.

The number of responses suggests as we get older we are much happier to wear micro suits & not bother about what others may think - and why not! Years ago I would think twice about stripping down to what I now consider a conservative suit. No such problem these days!

Rick, way to go on those marathons!  I used to love 'em, but my last was Boston's 100th running in '96, at age 52.  Now my longest is San Francisco's Bay-to-Breakers 12k every May.  Training to race does keep you fit, though, and at B2B you can show that off, running in just a thong or string, if you like.  Still deciding what to wear in '14, when I'll be gunning to win my new age group, M 70-79.  Any races you can 'dress down' like that in Germany?  It's a helluva lot of fun.  Hey, time to come tour the American West!

I'm not yet 50, but I'll continue to wear thongs and running tights as long as my body remains cylindrical and my butt is muscular.  I'll give them up for jammers and sweats only if I feel I'm not fit and slim enough to do it anymore.  It's one of my main motivations for staying in shape as I get older.

I'll be 71 next year and still wear g-strings to the beach. I keep in shape by cycling and swimming (although I should do more walking!!!). Every morning I cycle to the local pool wearing only a bikini with 6mm side straps - I will not wear shorts or speedo's - too much material! I have never had bad experience, ladies usually smile at me and say Hi and I say Hi, men usually totally ignore me and I ignore them; police don't have any interest in me as I am always legal on the bike, ie wearing helmet and having working lights and bell. I plan to keep doing that until I cannot stand on a bike any longer.Cheers to all out there.Chris

I'm 52 now and thonging for about 15 years. I'm just over 6 ft. tall and weigh about 160 Lbs.
In my opinion I'm in pretty good shape, and will keep on thonging as long as I feel myself OK and confident in a thong.
Age isn't a big issue for me. Thonging is so much fun. Why would you stop doing something you like that much just because of your age?

 I'm 64.  I think of myself as being raised in an era when small swimwear was normal.  Bikinis were OK.  Then came thongs.  It looked like the trend was toward minimal swimwear.  Suddenly, the trend went the other way to board shorts.  I felt that we were cheated.  I feel that I'm continuing my own trend by wearing thongs.

I first wore a thong to the beach several months after turning 62.  I felt very self conscious at first -- wore boardshorts over the thong to get to the beach -- but once I laid out it just felt too good to put the boardshorts back on.  Felt a little self conscious going into the water, but again the sensation was so great that I went back to the beach in the same thong two days later.  So I guess it's never to late to get started, or to keep going.

I'm now 58 and I still enjoy wearing thongs, both as underwear and as my choice for swimwear.    I think wearing a thong helps to keep me in decent shape because I want to look my best when on the beach.    I guess it's motivation to keep active and somewhat healthy.     I know I don't look like I did when I was in my 30's but I guess age does happen.    I also use you guys as motivation, some of you look smoking hot, I don't think I have that kind of time to devote to fitness.     Reminds me when I had joined a gym, it was always fun to get all sweaty in the gym, then head to the shower to show off my shave job and thong tan lines.

I'm 62. I have a pic posted in my profile and it's worth a thousand words! I'm in shape because I'm active outdoors as much as possible, and I wear a thong when I'm not nude. And a thong is a reasonable compromise, so it results in staying active. I can accept people who have "let themselves go". We vacation at a nude resort and I think it's a shame what bad shape (grossly overweight) some people are. With the knee problems, heart attack and stroke risk, it pure foolishness to set yourself up for that.Pete

There is a time and place for everything...a thong is NEVER appropriate for a gentleman your age. EVER!" This is very sad to me. Gay guys can have such prudish attitudes.

 I wear a thong as underwear and to the beach simply because I like them and they are very comfortable. I go to the beach to tan and relax, not socialize, so I don't hear comments, nor do I really care. I often think that if everybody had to be naked -- none of this would even matter.
