 I bought my first thong, a gazelle,  around 1985 0r 1988.  First saw a guy model one in a pool on PM magazine and knew I had to have one. This was before internet. I saw the male strippers on Donahue show and this just made me wanted one more.  When I saw a thong for men in a Belk store I immediately bought one.  I was nervous the first time I wore it at the lake, but the rush was so incredible I adjusted instantly.

 When I was 11.  I spent the summer in Japan and was really into the swim team.  They offered speedo or the traditional fundoshi.  I tried the fundoshi and loved the feeling of swimming in them ever since.  I got a couple snickers from the ladies but other guys wore them and I felt like I was in good company.  One of my lady friends decided to pull her suit up her butt to join us in her once piece....she eventually became my girlfriend. I eventually transitioned to thongs and g-strings.

I was 10.My parents bought on for me on a trip to Europe. My dad wore one on the beach, so I figured I would try it. At first I thought I would just wear it as a joke. But the moment I stripped to just my thong, I was instantly hooked. The support, the look, the feel. I kept that thong for years and continued to wear it even when it was worn out, faded, and way too small. Until I finally found another pair at a surf shop when I was 18. 
Now I'm a full time thong wearer. All day every day.

 I guess I'm in the middle of the pack as far as the year I wore one to the beach for the first time.
I first saw two high school girls wearing them in '91, then some young women.  They were the wildest suits I had ever seen.
In '92, I wondered if they sold them for men.  Found a three-pack of thong underwear for $7.00  (What a penny-pincher!)
In the spring of '93, used a tanning bed and my heart practically skipped when I saw the "best tan lines ever".
Took a buddy from work to show him the downtown Cleveland area, the Flats (before the bars went broke during the 2007 great recession), etc. and we ended up at Edgewater Park, just west of downtown Cleveland.  It was surprisingly warm on the lake for mid-May, usually taking until mid-June for the cool "natural air-conditioning" of the water to warm up.  I decided I had to check out that beach in the summer since it was so much bigger than the small beach at the park near me.
In June, I saw a lady sunbathing in a thong and the nearby ranger wasn't doing anything for five, 10, 15 minutes.  I decided to try one the next day.
I was nervous the first time.  If anyone was within 100 feet of me, I waited until they passed by before I took off my shorts.  I realized I had nerve endings in my behind when I felt the warmth of the sun!  The second time, I put down my towel, took off my socks and shoes, shirt and shorts, and started to read my car magazine.
After 15 minutes, it dawned on me that I hadn't even looked around.
Later that month, I met Maria and we had seven great summers of wearing thongs.  (If only she hadn't been with her boyfriend for 10 years when I met her!)  I've never met a woman with a personality who had an effect on me the way Maria did.  But that's probably another story for "Personal Experiences".
I asked the guy who rode his bike and talked to lots of people, about when the park started to allow thongs, since another nearby State Park issued citations until the Ohio Supreme Court decision in '94.  He said they stopped issuing citations at Edgewater in 1988!  I guess I got a late start, but I've still enjoyed most every day up there.

 That would be the summer of '87 just after my 18th birthday. 

I had just started seeing this really hot girl that used to take aerobics classes in the studio that overlooked the pool I used for swim team practice.  Being the late 80's she always wore the hottest of outfits...... skintight shiny Lycra leggings with a thong backed leotard over the top, boy she looked hot as she worked out.  We had caught one another eyeing  each other up, I guess she liked my rather too tight little speedos that I wore for swim practice ..... and it was only a matter of time before we bumped into one another at the end of our workouts, one thing lead to another and we started dating. 

For my 18th birthday she took me on a surprise trip to her parents villa complex in Southern Spain, she had organised everything, even packed for me! On arriving we decided to immediately hit the pool, and that's when she produced one of the swim suits I was to wear for our holiday. Nearly 30 years on I still remember her words

" yer I know you like to show off in those tiny little trunks of yours at swim practice so I thought you might like to show off for me in these" 

She handed me a bright red thong swim suit, (conservative by my today's standards,) it had a proper drawstring front that was quite narrow, with about 1/2 inch sides and a fairly small triangle rear, it was a hot little suit, I was a little nervous at the thought of wearing it in public at first until I saw the suit she was wearing, it was similar to one of her aerobic leotards but tighter cut and defiantly a swim suit. My heart was pounding as I dropped my towel and exposed my thonged bum for the first time down at the complex pool, I know we got a few looks but no one really seemed to take that much notice. We certainly weren't the only couple wearing thongs but we were the least dressed couple there.

Without doubt she started my love affair with wearing and being seen wearing thongs and I'm pretty sure that suit she wore was the start of my love affair with the slingshot thong! 
To this day I wear nothing else as underwear or as swim/tanning wear if the circumstances allow.

I would think I bought my first thong in the spring of 1971. A department store advertised them. It was the first time I saw a thing like this and my heart started pounding at once. I had always been into skimpy swimwear, but I had never imagined I could ever wear something this small. As soon as the department store opened I was there to buy this thong. Trying it on I nearly came. Then I had to be in the line at the cashier. It felt pretty strange to stand there with this wee wee piece of textile but I said to myself if you're planning to wear this on the beach you certainly shouldn't have any qualms being seen holding it in your hands.When it was my turn the cashier asked if I was aware it was real small. I answered her that was exactly why I wanted to buy it. She then smiled and wished me much pleasure wearing it. To this day thongs and even more strings are my favorite swimwear.

 Must have been 1997-1998 or somewhere around there. I remember admiring women in thongs throughout the 80's and 90's and always thinking, "I wish they made men's underwear or swimwear that looked like that" because it was such a flattering look for the rear. I always considered buying women's thongs from the mall but figured I'd be too embarrassed (though in retrospect I now realize it's quite common for men to buy thongs and lingerie for their significant other, so it's really not that out of the ordinary).
At any rate, with the advent of broadband and "always on" internet connections, and online purchasing becoming more and more trustworthy (with an added layer of anonymity to boot) I discovered Skinzwear on the internet, probably around 1997-1998 and was excited to see they sold thongs for men. I started off with a few Rio's, then progressed to a few thongs, and then to string thongs. Around the same time, I discovered some great adjustable-front G-strings from Frederick's of Hollywood, which led to me shaving my pubes so I could cinch the front of the G for minimal coverage. That was really how it all began and the collection just grew over time. Skinzwear was the mainstay for the longest and was what the collection really was centered around - I bought dozens of items from them through much of the 2000's.

 I think it was in the mid 90s when the Internet was really taking off and I found dores site among others and bought some swim thongs, a 1/4 " side leopard print and from another store a black narrow front with 1/2" sides. Also have a couple in a very stretchy fabric which are minuscule to look at. But stretch when worn and give a fab profile.

 Also bought a couple of swim/under things in a shop in Buenas Aires, Argentina in 2007 after passing a little old fashioned lingerie shop. Saw them in the window and wondered if they for men and sure enough they were. Had a most helpful lady who opened one up and spread on the counter to let me see and despite my broken Spanish she made me feel totally at ease when buying them. A white and black one. Wore them a couple of times beneath my everyday clothes and was interested in what the lady at the local launderette thought! Though always had a smile when I went into pick up my laundry. As for bikinis, I've been wearing them for years! From school where we wore proper speedos in very soft fabric which allowed freedom and a healthy profile. Even then I had some very skimpy ones. Since then I have persevered with the briefest styles and last year in Austria had one of my briefest moments at a spa when I turned in the sides of my3/4" side bikini to about half that and happily wandered around even up through a fully clothed public area to get a massage. Very liberating

When i started wearing thongs or at least perked my interest in them was around 15-16 yrs old (1999/2000), for the life of me i cannot recall like others what brought me to them in the first place like people would usually say "oh i saw a guy on a movie" or something like that, for me i just cannot recall.
One of my first i ever purchased was on kiniki.com as i saw the advert in the newspaper so i requested a brochure and ordered via mail (this was when dialup was at its prime lol) the only issue was that i was living at home with my parents who just opened any mail and as you can imagine the inevitable happened but what was weird was my dad thought it was a trick and asked them in his work place "did you get this for me" to which everyone burst out laughing and said no, i was horrified as i had to be confronted in front of both parents who then mocked me for about 1-2 years after as i had at the time made the excuse that i ordered the wrong item to which they believed. The thong in question is long gone now but the model is still available from kiniki.com to this day, it was the Cha Cha Thong in White. After this i was sort of hooked but as my story foretold above says i had to be really careful how i went about acquiring any more. After this i discovered that C&A (whom use to trade in the UK) stocked both swim and underwear thongs for which i had to pluck up the courage and buy face to face which was another scary thing at my young age but i did indeed do it and afterwards it felt great.

Nowadays i could just go into a shop and buy like normal as the nervousness has more or less turned in to "who cares" attitude instead. Most of my purchases i do tend to be online nowadays but i do keep my eye out when i am traveling around if there is anywhere that does or may sell some and at least take a look. : - P

 I used to cut and hand-sew my tighty-whiteys in thongs when I was a kid. I bought my first one online, a cheap leather thong, when I turned 18 in 1998, after I got a credit card. I've been wearing them ever since.

Goes back to what I think was Valentine's Day of 1991.  Had purchased lots of thongs and g-strings for my gf.  She knew how it turned me on.  I typically wore speedos.  That year for Valentine's Day she bought me two thongs.  Me wearing them had a similar effect on her that her wearing them had on me.  Needless to say I bought more and never looked back.

 Ha! Like sunny P, my first thongs came from Kiniki via mail, but at the time I was in university halls of residence, so even more chance of someone else picking up the parcels… Thankfully didn't happen though. I also remember fondly the anxiety / thrill of buying skimpy undies and swimwear from actual shops when very young. Most shop assistants would ring them through as if they hadn't noticed, but over the years I had several of them comment and even compliment. I particularly remember an older female say "I like those! More label than swimsuit!" when I was buying a Hom swim thong. She knew how to make a 21 year-old blush...

 I started in 2008 on a dare from a friend. She said that after I tried them on I'd be wearing a smile all day. She was right! My first were a pack of Joe Boxer thongs I bought at Kmart. After that I was hooked. Since then I've bought thongs online, at Macy's, Marshalls, male lingerie stores (thank you France!), you name it. 
As underwear, I wear thongs 98% of the time. When I'm not I wear super snug, body hugging brazillian trunks. I'm slowly working my way to thong swimwear. Yesterday I wore my tight Tyr swimsuit which I've had in my drawer for like 5+ years. It feels very liberating!

 I have been wearing thongs and gstrings as underwear and swimwear since I bought my first pair of emminence from JC Penney sometime while in high school during the early 1990s. I remember seeing a hustler magazine with a hard core pictorial where the MF couple started out in thongs. It also helped that as a teenager my parents received the Fredericks of Hollywood catalog. I bought my first g string from the store in Albany New York. I wish that website still sold mens lingerie. The quality and comfort of the thong underwear and gstrings was a great value. I think I remember paying 3 for 15 for really nice cotton thongs and maybe a little more for the spandex gstring. Since those days I have bought from small boutiques to TJ Maxx and Marshalls. The Calvin Klein tech fabric thong was a great find at TJ Maxx years ago. I remember being in line and the cashier commenting on how popular this item had been. Sadly the thong selection at mall centered stores has dwindled. It makes it hard to pull the trigger on a thing when you can't feel the fabric and see the workmanship.

 I started wearing thong underwear when I was 20. I had moved to my own place and finally had the freedom to do and wear what I wanted. It was 10 years before I started wearing thong swimwear. I found my first underwear at Fredericks and then some small shops in town and finally at large upscale department stores. My first thong swimwear was Speedo from a Speedo store in a local mall. When the stores stopped carrying thongs I started looking further into the online sights. Of course between the time I found the Speedo thong and the end of brick and mortar stores caring thongs I discovered Skinzwear. I have bought many items from them over the years. Now I have a variety of thongs from many makers, but I miss being able to walk into a store and walk out the door with items in hand.

 I wasn't aware of the existence or popularity of thongs as everyday women's underwear until college, but I fell in love with them almost immediately once I was.  I remember having a conversation with a girl I was hooking up with at the time, she was asking about my turn-ons and thongs were definitely on the top of the list.  Her reply: "if you like them on girls so much, why don't you wear one yourself?"  This was in 1999, I didn't think anything of it at first but the idea started appealing to me over time and I began looking into thong underwear for guys.  I ended up taking the plunge and buying my first thong underwear online in 2000.  First thong swimsuit came six months later, from a small lingerie store that had a men's rack (the good old days).  The rest, as they say, is history.

Hi! I just stared wearing thongs this summer. My fiancé (now husband) bought me one for our honeymoon. I hadn't expected to wear it. I don't even wear thong panties. But, I decided to bring it along anyway.

After a couple of days on the beach, I started to notice that I was dressed rather conservatively compared to everyone else. I tried on the thong again that night and figured I'd give it a go the next day (much to my husband's delight). I felt pretty nervous with so little on at the beach the next afternoon, but by the end of the week I was enjoying the beach in my itty bitty bikini.

Anyway, this is my first post and I look forward to chatting with everyone.

At first I was a little unsure and nervous.  I stayed with a very conservative thong and after a couple of times I went to much less conservative. Now I wear a fish net camouflage colored thong and love it. I found that after taking the first step and no one cared it was easy to move on.I have to thank string_guy for getting me started.

13 years ago when I was 15 years old - I started with g-strings in a box of 2 that I mistakenly bought - find it weird as I unboxed because I did not even know I bought a box of g-string. At the beginning it felt uncomfortable because the size was not my size, but it felt sexy somehow. I then bought the same g-strings model but for my size fitting. Felt great. 
Been wearing g-string/thongs since - occasional i'll wear a shorty, probably once a month kind of thing.

 My first swim thong I got at a outlet swimwear shot near Gatlinburg TN of all places.  Mom and Dad would make a couple of trips to the area each year and Dad was already into thongs.  (He has worn thongs pretty much exclusively since the 1970's, so it's not like I didn't have a role model.  Mom did not wear thongs because she had many surgeries and wanted to cover the scars on her body.)  Anyway, Nikki my sister and I had been begging to get some new swimwear and I don't think either of us were thinking about getting thongs since we usually wore bikini swimsuits.  Anyway, Mom took us to this outlet store that was in an old barn and I was looking for a yellow swimsuit since I thought they were the coolest looking swimsuits and Mom pulls a yellow thong swimsuit off the rack and suggests I try it on.  It fit and once I put it on I knew why Dad always wore thongs.  Anyway, we bought that thong but Nikki got a regular bikini.  That afternoon, we went out to the motel pool and I laid out and got my first sun on my buns and I felt so mature and Nikki saw how cool it was and that evening she begged Mom to go back and let her get a thong too.  Anyway, we went the next day and she got two thongs and I got one more and I wore those thongs the rest of the summer and nothing else.  Neither Dad nor Mom ever said anything to us about thongs or when we could start wearing them if we wanted.  I started when I was 15 and Nikki started when she was 14 that same trip.  The year would have been 1995 I think.
After that trip, whenever I checked out the swimwear at stores, I always looked for thongs and would walk away if they didn't have any.  A few times I saw mothers (I assume) doing the same thing that my Mom did -- pulling a thong off the rack to show their daughter.  The mothers always said they were "cute" or "fashionable" or something positive, but the girls never were interested and would always buy a bikini instead.  I also saw the same things happening with boys, but it seemed that when the teen aged boys looked for swimwear, it was always with both Mom and Dad or with other members of the family, and the family members suggested a thong more as a joke than as a serious suggestion.  Today, I don't know if a mother would be comfortable with the thought of suggesting a daughter wear such a skimpy swimsuit, but back then, even though thongs were loosing their popularity in general, there still were lots of women and some men on the beaches and at the pools who wore them and I think that these other mothers accepted them as just another type of swimsuit and not as an outfit that would show off a woman or man's buns.

Seeing this made me think...
I started in the sixties by making my own thongs out of knotted chiffon scarves, and string with bits of cloth. Not too successful but the scarves worked well enough. I found the relevant sections in Exchange and Mart which I found in newsagents or libraries, and found some of the available suppliers. It was tricky in the early days as I could not get anything sent home at that time but some years later when I was old enough to ride a motor bike and have independence I scouted shops in London. I found several small shops in West Kensington, and the Kings Road and a small workshop behind the Barbican were selling thongs in the sixties, and soon the Hom Freddy was sold in Selfridges. Who remembers Weiss (I think) in Piccadilly? 
I was a customer of Intersparta since they started trading, and used the Bristol Company for many years until they closed. I wish I had kept the annual catalogues. Of course when I got connected to the internet a whole new area became available, and I soon discovered Dore who became the mainstay of supply to such an extent that I have some 80 (!) Dore thongs (indeed I have had a look, and had to abandon a dozen that had perished elastic) and I have just a couple of thongs by other makers. I wonder if I am unusual in being so loyal to one maker - Dore.
Recently I have thongs from Tambre Dickman but there is less of a range just now, and the personal service I received from Dore was exceptional. I have tried Jovana...
Well this has been a long way to say I started wearing thongs in the sixties, but I should add that for the first ten or fifteen years not exclusively. I have been totally thong for underwear and swimwear for some 25 years.

 I started wearing thongs in the early 1980's after I purchased a road bike for exercise. I also purchased a pair of bicycle shorts. I usually wore a jock underneath, but I was looking for something to support my package without showing through the bike shorts. One day, I was in Macy's and was in the Men's Fashion Underwear section. I saw some fashion thong underwear and purchased two pair. I also wore them under my regular clothes. That got me started. Once the internet became popular, options opened up and have since purchased both thong (and g-string) swimwear and underwear. Now I have over a dozen pair of thong underwear and more than a dozen thong swimsuits and g-strings.

 About 5 years ago. Now I wear them about 4 days a week and bikini underwear the rest of the time. I started with the thongs and bikinis as an icentive and instant feedback to lose weight. The more weight I lost, the better and more comfortable they felt and the more I liked them.
I have had the opportunity to wear thong swimsuits on the Osterman beach the past feew summers. If not a thong on the beach, then a speedo.

 Underpen --
Dad told us about his early thong acquisitions -- at first he had a girl-friend make them for him.  They were made out of a variety of materials but since elastic stock was not available locally, mostly cotton or synthetic blends that had no stretch.  She made him one out of some stretch denim she had from an abandoned pair of white stretch women's jeans she had, and this was his favorite for years.  He soon realized that the material needed to be stretchy.
He ordered some from mail-order places (he doesn't remember the company now) and this was back when you got a catalog, tore out an order form from the catalog, attached a check or money order, put it in an envelope and waited.  He said it sometimes would take three weeks to get something and the packages usually were delivered by the postal service.  If anything was wrong, like the amount was calculated wrong or something was out of stock, the place would write you back and you would have to reply and this would add another two weeks to getting your order.
At the same time, he found some thongs at places like Fredrick's of Hollywood and they even had them at Spencer Gifts for a time.  Catalog sales also started using phone in order acceptance and payment via credit cards, and this made the ordering process almost as fast as it is now, except you still needed to get on a mailing list for the catalogs.
As far as a single sourse, Randy my husband started wearing just Speedo thongs.  This was when they were still available at some stores.  He then switched over to Toto which had a similar cut and which he always had good luck with.  He still has some of each, and wears them from time to time.  Then as his exhibitionistic tendencies got the better of him, he started wearing Male Power thongs that were probably supposed to be used as underwear but he liked the thin see-thru materials, snaps on the waist that let him open the sides, and other features.  He still wears some of these, and has both white and black mesh thongs he somehow gets away wearing even on non clothing optional beaches.
Recently, he has been purchasing a suit here or there, and Nikki and I have also bought him some from various places over the last few years.

Long ago  --- early 1970s  --- but I have gone to a lot of trouble to maintain a thong body.  The company was Parr of Arizona, later Nu-Parr, and now gone.  They called their plain white thong a "T-back" and considered it to be quite revolutionary.

I first started wearing thongs when I was 14, at the time (1997) Jockey was making a simple cotton mens thong, and you could find it anywhere. When I got my license, I started buying every thong I could find. When I was 20, I bought my first thong bikini, and more it here and there with my girlfriend. Years later, I met my wife spent years in a thong bikini  while we went to this beach or that on various vacations. It has trailed off since the kids arrived, but youll have that.

 approx 1989.  However, at that time there were only female thongs available and female thong-bodies.
