I am curious who on this board was the first to wear thong swimwear.  
It certainly wasn't me -- I got started about 10 years ago, but maybe some of the old timers were wearing them in the 1970's or even earlier.

Best as I can figure I would have been 18 when I started wearing  a g-string on the beach. I remember buying it from a guy who specialised in making costumes for dancers and strippers just before he shut for the Xmas holidays, so it would have been December 1974. Up until then, a number of girls and a few guys (including me) had been rolling their bikini bottoms or Speedos down to tan their bums and there was the occasional sighting of a g-string clad female, but I hadn't seen any other guys before me.

PS Not sure I like being called an "old timer".

About 15 years ago. My first thong was a DORE moderate thong.
The first few years I only thonged in my back-yard. After a few years I started thonging on the beach also.

 First time I wore a thong would have been about 81.
First time I wore a thong in public was at a pool in Blackpool in about 83.
First time on a beach was about 85 in Corfu.

 I think it was around 1967; I was living in Liege (Belgium) and working in Brussels, commuting every day by train. One afternoon walking back to the gare du Nord from the office, I saw a g-string in the window of a shop. I went in and bought it, and on the train went to the toilet to change into it, I threw my underwear out of the window. I would have been 24 then, and since then it has always been g-strings.

 I remember trying to make a thong out of one of my old jock straps when I was in grade school (9-10 years old). I actually wore it like that to one of my little league games, and god was it uncomfortable. In high school, I could walk to the local shopping center, and I bought a few thong panties but never kept them long. It wasnt until I got my drivers license (16 years) that I began to regularly and openly wear thongs. I would drive an hour north to the nearest mall,  and buy as many Frederic's of Hollywood  mens thongs as I could afford.  By the time I was 18, which was 2001, I was skipping afternoon classes to drive out to the state park , and go swimming and tanning in my thong. I figured that I was probably the only person in my entire class to have attended graduation with a thong tan line.  My mom and dad never really cared, but they always told me to go get dressed if I tried to walk around the house in my thongs.

I think I wore my first thong in '98 or '99, when I went on my first vacation to South Florida.   I took a rather conservative thong with me, not knowing if I would wear it or not.   When I went to Fort Lauderdale beach, there were several others in thongs.  I was not alone and felt OK also wearing a thong.   It was on that trip that I saw JM_runs on the beach.   I had no idea who is was, but I sure admired the fact that he seemed so confident, running down the beach.    It was on this trip that I went to South Beach for the first time.   I arrived on the beach and immediately saw a guy wearing something that I had seen in International Male (now called Undergear) catalogue.   It was called a pocket thong.   When looking at it in the catalogue, I couldn't imagine anyone ever wearing something so tiny in public.   I couldn't even imagine where anyone would wear such a thing.   Now, here I am looking at a guy wearing the very thing that I had only seen in print.   It had a Y back, which seemed so daring at the time.   Upon arriving home, and thinking more about what I had seen, I knew I had to have one too.   I ordered the Pocket Thong in black.   Before my next trip to Florida, I had also ordered it in white.    From then on, my choice of swimwear got tinier and tinier.   Now, I am not afraid to wear anything in public.   I guess I needed the reassurance of seeing others in tiny swimwear for me to begin my journey into wearing thongs, g strings......and even baggies and bungee cords in public.

1977 I purchased my first thong, handmade on Lido beach here in Sarasota. I still have it and wear it and it has travelled with me wherever I have been, takes up very little space in a suitcase, lol. There is a pic of me wearing it in our profile. I have taken very very good care of it, I probably now own more than 2 dozen thongs but this one is special to me and brings fond memories.

That question really makes me think and shudder.  I'd say late 1980s for thong underwear, two to three years after high school, because I remember where I was working at the time.  I probably started on thong swimsuits in 1989, maybe 1990.  After I moved to Asia, I went to thong underwear full time because of the humidity.

 I think I can blow you all out of the water. I posted earlier about this and I think I wore my first string at the beach in the late 50s. Being 70 now and still in string or thong at the beach.http://forum1.aimoo.com/ThongBoard/Personal-Experiences/What-made-you-start-thonging-How-did-you-start-your-first-time-1-625690.htmlGo to post #35, my nick then was wr1944.Over the years I seem to remember more details of that period. I must have been between 14 and 16 when I made that string. The front was from left-overs of a dress in the then popular chequered design, also called Brigitte Bardot chequers. The waist band was from an old bra-strap for adjustment. I have a picture of it in my profile (DIY). With that first string I did not walk between public and I stayed at quiet places. It felt nice but the lack of elastic material stopped the process.

My first G string was bought from a company called King Key Ware, they advetised in the no longer published Exchange and Mart, who remembers that ? That would have been  1974, 75. Bought my first Hom swim string from Selfridges about 1978.

I'm guessing it would be 1972, when I bought a 3-pack of G-strings advertised in a Sunday newspaper. They weren't that comfortable or practical, and it was a few years later that I discovered thongs.

 Bought my first thong in (of all places) Pittsburgh PA while I was in graduate school. The year was 1986.  It was one of those local sexy clothes/lingerie stores near the University of Pittsburgh.  The women who worked there was a big thong advocate.  She actually talked me into getting one saying "your girlfriend will love it".   I actually started wearing thongs before her.  She quickly converted.

 I started wearing thongs for swimwear first in 1993 when my college roommate who was a stripper part time showed me his when at out apartment complex pool. He looked very sexy in it with his shaven and tanned skin. I knew then that that was the type of look that I was looking for. I had always wore skimpy bikini briefs as underwear, but after seeing him and how sexy that look was I knew that thongs we're going to be the new underwear and swimwear for me. We went to a bikini shop that sold men's and women's suits and he directed me to the rack where he bought his. I picked out 3 and tried them on. I imediatialy feel in love with the feel and the way they looked on me. I bought all 3; black, zebra striped and an orange one. We spent the next 2 years at that complex laying out and getting amazing tans. After that, he moved up to South Carolina for graduate school. We still keep in touch but have not thonged together since being roomies. I told him that he totally changed me the day I saw him in his thong and wear them now probably 6 days a week and always are my swimwear choice in the right venues. He laughed and also said that he still wears thongs and thinks it is cool that he was able to convert me into being a thonger.

 My first time would have been about 1989 in my mother-in-law's pool.  That being the only place available for me at the time, we visited her often "so I could clean her pool for her."  Progress was gradual after that, adding our back yard and then being more open about it in both places, so I don't specifically remember the first time in public. That would have been several years later, probably at Apollo Beach.

Summer of 1988 on Sunset Beach, Treasure Island, Florida. It felt like the entire beach was looking at me even when I was sitting on my ass on my towel. I began wearing speedos in High School when I was on the dive team. We wore some very tiny and very tight suits to eliminate them from causing any undo splash. Really my Mom dressed me in tiny suits as a small boy and I loved them then and now days all I wear are gstrings. Really love the new Dore suits I recent purchased.

 I was 14 and on a vacation with my girlfriend and her family - we went to Florida.  My g/f brought along two thongs for us.  I wore it on a dare and loved it.  We all went to the beach and her whole family wore thongs too.  It was kinda a cool thing to do and be more grown up.  Her Mom went topless and we did too.

Short answer, this year. But this seems like a good place to introduce myself.  I am 51, my wife is 52. We are from Central Mass (USA) and go to Wells Maine every summer weekend. Last year we went to the Bahamas, and I bought a speedo (my pic). This year we went to the DR, and I brought a thong for the beach. A different one for each day. I loved it, and the looks I got. Next year we are going to St Martin on Orient beach. I doubt I'll be wearing a thong much while there :)

 1983. I purchased a road bike for exercise and a pair of bike shorts. At first, I wore a jock underneath the shorts, but the rear straps of the jock showed through the short. One day, I was in a local department store and I saw underwear thongs being sold; I purchased three pair to wear underneath the shorts. Eventually, I purchased a pair of tights that I wore with a thong underneath. I always wore speedos for swimming and for the beach. Eventually, I purchased some swim thongs. I now regular wear thongs as underwear, except on rather cold days, and usually wear thong whenever I go to the beach. My collection has grown quite a bit. I now have fifteen pairs of thong underwear and eight sets of thong swimwear. Using the internet has made it more convenient to purchase and discuss thongs. I am now sixty-five years old and still enjoy wearing thongs. There is one exception, when I go to a nude beach. I do wear a thong and t-shirt between the parking lot and the beach (such as Gunnison in NJ), but both come off after I past the "Nude Beyond" sign.

Either the late  60's or very early 70's. Thongs and Bikinis from Parr of Arizona   &   InterSparta   from Bristol England.    Everything was ordered from 4 colour catalogues that you had to pay for. Always a thrill to   pick up a package from the local village post office..  a couple of times the postmistress told me that the packages accidently tore open. :)  Yea...the  Village  peepers   knew all about me !!~~!!

 Started wearing thong underwear in my mid 20's which would have been around 2000. First wore thong swimwear in 2005 during a visit to Fort Desoto Beach after discovering this board. Now, I wear both nearly exclusively.
