When thongers visit beachside bars or cafes for a little refreshment, are they expected to spread a little towel before sitting down, following standard nudist ettiquette?  Or does their thong provide sufficient ‘cover’ to absolve them of this requirement since they’re not technically nudists?  This question occurred to me when I read how Toucan’s on Hollywood Beach’s boardwalk and St Barts Cafe across the street from Ft Lauderdale Beach are favorite haunts of thong-clad members of this board.
When I was at Orient Beach on St Martin, spending whole days in just a string, I didn’t stop at any eateries, so the issue never arose.  Nor did I happen to observe the behavior of nudists straying off their Club Orient reservation for a bite to eat at places like Bay Watch that they frequent au naturel.  They’d probably have spread a little towel.  Should I have if I’d eaten there, too, wearing just my string?  Should I do so if I get to a place like Toucan’s or St Barts Cafe, wearing a thong, and maybe a tank top?  That’s a more likely scenario.

Speaking as a Naked/Thong cycle rider, I personally do use a towel when I sit down in the saddle or in a seat.
I would regard this as a matter of courtesy to others.

At my desk, I work usually by sitting on a fitness ball / "swiss" ball and sometimes, well quite often, I'm wearing only my thong, but as it's my private ball in my private office, I don't use a towel here, but I do have a towel permanently on my office operator's chair. It keeps the chair looking brand new, clean and fresh and makes my office welcoming to colleagues, customers, and visitors.

In public, I certainly would make every effort not to spread my man sweat elsewhere and also I don't really want to pick up other peoples' dirt or bacterias on to my skin either. A towel would be a good courtesy and kind to others.

Only the weirdos want contact with other stranger men's bottom sweat. Just like few people want to see other men's "junk" and gentleman parts, most people don't want contact with pubic hairs, sweat, poop releases, and "lurve" droplets.

We can do both: Look good in thongs but not annoy and disgust other people.

On Orient Beach away from the Club Orient area we've worn a thong or g-string while sitting in the beachside restaurants and have always brought a towel to sit on.  We carry small hand towels specifically for this purpose.  It's the proper thing to do.

While eating at Toucan's or other eateries on Hollywood Beach, I generally sit on a towel. This is to protect my backside from a chair that has been sitting in the sun for a while as well as being courteous. I notice that most males sitting at the outdoor eateries don't have a shirt on and thus get their "man sweat" all over the back of the chair. I have never seen anyone complain about or react negatively to this.

 hahahaha!!! Interesting!!! ....never thought of it before ('never has come up!). 
Well,  I don't like other people's sweat on a gym's equipment seat or backrest; I wouldn't sit on a chair that was wet, from sweat nor water/liquid. But regular bottom swimwear does leave the upper thighs bare on the chair so technically bikini bottom wearers should wear some sort of cover up when sitting in public places, the burden shouldn't be on nudists/thong wearers. 
I for one was raised in such a fashion that unless one is swimming, or sun bathing, or some sort of activity where there is a need to be uncovered, well then OK, but if you're just hangin' then be dressed (top and bottom. For example, I can't see JFK, or Prince William, sitting at a beachside bar shirtless. His shirt may be unbuttoned, but he'll have something on his back. Good enough for JFK, good enough for me). Other people can do what they like, be nude for all I care, but if I'm walking over to the snackbar I am going to cover up (it would be silly to walk around the supermarket or the pharmacy shirtless, you know what I mean?). I have quit being surprised when I see a child or a grown man sitting to a meal shirtless; it may be stereotyping but where I come from we have names for people like that!

Whenever I go to public swimming pool, and no matter what I am wearing or not wearing, common courtesy demands that you put a towel down between your bottom and the chair.  Look at this way, would you want to sit in some wet area bearing the marks of the last person's bottom?  Of course not.  Finally, it protects you as much as is a courtesy to the next person who will sit there.

 When I am at the restaurant I always sit on a towel if I am nude or wearing a thong, it is on polite for the next person.

Was recently researching a Caribbean Sailing charter and ran across this info which seemed to neatly classify the nudity situation for boaters 1. Topless, thong swimwear and discreet skinny dipping, nude swimming is common in anchorages 2. Nude sunbathing on deck can be done when not in a busy anchorage, professional crew members should be forewarned 3. A "Nudist" cruise would be declared if you wish to remain nude at most times or plan to sit down to a meal nude. Interesting that you're a nudist if you eat a meal nude!

I always use a towel pool side on seats and loungers. As stated before, it is protection both for you and others. A towel also is usually a lot more comfortable than the bare surface of the chairs or loungers too. I also use a towel at most beaches. The rare exception is at tide-water beaches with low uses like some of the out-of-the-way places in the Outer Banks. In Ohio, the beaches are often made of a clay or dirt based product. Your towel will most certainly get dirty, as would you if you layed in the stuff. There also are the goose and other animal "droppings" to contend with. Coastal beaches can be very clean and nice, or very bad. You just have to judge for yourself. I do wonder about two issues about towel use. First, wouldn't the young women who wear incredably skimpy shorts wind up touching unknow things when they sit on almost any chair or seat. Second, what exactly are we trying to protect ourselves from by using a towel? Is it just the sweat and oils from others? Is it bacteria? Is it things like poison ivy or other surface transfered substances? (Medically know as contact dermatitis.) I have seen food and drink residue, and something that looks like male body excretions on some surfaces. I would prefer to decide what types of dirt and excretions I will be laying or sitting in, who they came from, and if I like the person. With a close lover and romantic situation in bed, some of this might be acceptable. Out in the public, not knowing where stuff came from, is not acceptable, at least to me. (As a foot note, if I go to a motel or hotel and think there might be some intimate contact/activities, I will insist on two beds -- one to mess up, the other to keep clean for sleeping. I think it was Dr. Ruth who said "good sex is messy". I dont think I will change doing what I do now (covering seats with towels) regardless of what the potential health risks in not using a towel are.

Two beds, good tip. Towels: Unless someone has active diarrhea or skin disease you are no more likely to get an infection by sitting where they sat than by opening a door or putting your hand on a counter. Actually less likely, because your hand may end up on your face or around your mouth. If they make you, or the people you are with, feel less icky then go right ahead, use them. They are also useful anyplace you are going to drop a lot of sweat, like under a bike trainer or in a sauna, or in a gym.
