I've enjoyed wearing some very short and ultra thin black split-seam running shorts. They have a 1' inseam. here is the link to the source: https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Vouge-Men-Soft-Dream-Split-Short-Home-Shorts-N2N101-White-Black-Grey/232145115949
Highly recommended! They have been daily wear while shopping and "out and about" in this last warm season. I wear an adjustable loop loop underneath the shorts that is essentially a clone of the "bunn-gee" @@@@@@ hoist, but much more comfortable. It results in the whole package being elevated and in front of my thighs as opposed to dangling between them. A "non-thong" thong in that there is nothing between my bare flesh and the shorts. I think it looks pretty good; a nice wiggle when I walk and just a hint of transparency that is nice. It was no issue wherever I wore them. If anyone noticed they either liked it or didn't care, which is just fine.
Anyhow, I was wondering if the board members might know of a thong that lifts the scrotum, but is open. A "ball-sling". The rest of the equipment would ride in the open. I've seen the thong that exposes the scrotum, but haven't found one that's the opposite. It would be more convenient than the loop, and perhaps more comfortable since there wouldn't be any loop acting as a c-ring.
I think this would be ideal to wear under the shorts I've described. I've been looking at the usual sources for thongs without luck. Not even Good Devil has one.
Pikeman, Actually Good Devil does sale something like you are talking about it is called the "extra mini thong" which in all reality is a G-string without a front panel and provides support and full frontal exposure. I have about 10 of them that i wear as underwear or as a G-string for sunbathing and swimming where nudity isn't allowed. because from the back it looks like any other G-string.
