Hmmm, that's a bit of a general statement, don't ya think? And I'm not entirely sure what you're meaning is here exactly.

Personally, I don't like thongs, I just don't find them comfortable or attractive, and I won't wear one unless I really have to. And not all boys like them necessarily...my boyfriend isn't particularly fond of them.

i have to agree with that. I really don't like them. I like my regular cotton underwear, hehe. I don't think thongs look very good, and i don't think they're too comfy.

I've never had a desire to wear one, and i doubt i ever will.

Well I never thought I'd ever imagine myself wearing or enjoy wearing thongs. But I tried it & I love them. I don't wear them that much though since I prefer my other ones(bikini type, i'm not a fan of cotton though)better. My boyfriend does find them attractive though, but even if he didn't like them I'd still wear them. Thats just my opinion on them.

I think thongs are more of a necessity than anything else. they rock with tight pants because they don't show lines.

Victoria's secret cotton/spandex thongs, and those made by cosabella, are actually very, very comfy. I really recommend them.

From a male point of view, it's all a matter of personal taste. I have some friends who can't stand thongs, and others who will dribble after a girl if she's wearing one. Yes, I do have some shallow friends, I know

Personally, I don't really care. They CAN look good, and be practical as they stop the dreaded 'lines' appearing, but generally, I gues it's all down to the wearers choice.

Personally, I think thongs are okay. I find my cotton bonds briefs most comfy, but when it's hot and I sleep mostly naked, a thong keeps me cooler.

I find it isn't the cut of the underwear but what its made of. Cotton breathes, so it's more comfy (for me anyway).

I'm a big fan of thongs. It's pretty much the only type of underwear, except when I'm at home wearing boxer shorts and tshrits, then I love my plain white bikinis. But otherwise, it's thongs. I actually find them more comfortable than regular underwear. Thus, I'm an avid collector of Victoria's Secret cotton v-strings.

I'll move this to About You. We can continue chatting about our underwear there.

I've never actually worn a thong all day. I got one for my 16th bday from my best friend and ended up giving it to my mother. I can't stand having something in my butt crack for more than 2 seconds. It just drives me up the wall.

I'm considering giving it a second try tho. Maybe a pack of 5 or something in different colours and such, so i'll be able to wear one for each school day

The discussion of thongs and panty lines brings to mind an old "Cathy" comic strip by cartoonist Cathy Guisewite. After listening to a saleswoman extoling the virtues of a "no panty-line thong" she wonders to herself "why would I want to look like I wasn't wearing underwear?"

i'm so brazen that i don't hesitate to adjust my bra, pick a wedgie or scratch myself in public. unfortunately, i do this without thinking, and i can only guess if i attempted to wear a thong, i'd do nothing but tug on it. i'd be walking funny all day. after a while, i'd actually have to admit, it's something of a faux pas to constantly be grabbing at my own arse.

Thongs are big where I live. Very big. And let me tell you, it isn't particularly nice when girls start wearing see-through pants or hiphuggers that start sliding down and reveal everything.

I personally am happy with my cotton briefs or bikinis, thank you very much! I can't see myself wearing a thong. Comfort is a huge issue for me, and I can't imagine that I would be very comfortable in them.

I have one thong and its horribly uncomfortable. I personally don't like that much, a pair of Calin Klein panyt's are much more appealing to me!! But then again I go for anything with a designer label

I can attest to that...our dear Gummy is pretty bold.

As for thongs, I don't think I have a genuine opinion of them either way. I used to constantly wonder why anyone would want to wear something that provides the much-dreaded "wedgie" effect all day long, until an ex-girlfriend took the time to explain in detail the curse of the even more dreaded "lines" effect. (Which I will admit, I still don't fully understand...)

What I do know is that with the current SoCal trend (and I am assuming that this trend is popular elsewhere as well) of wearing extremely tight, extremely low-cut pants with thongs underneath, there is definitely an increased incidence of people inadvertently displaying themselves in public. Two weeks ago I went to see a movie, and a woman seated next to me tapped my shoulder and asked if I wouldn't mind making some space for her to walk past my seat to use the bathroom. I made room for her, and imagine my surprise when she stood directly in front of me with her back towards me, and her very low-cut pants slid down well below where they should have been. I got more than an eyeful of that poor woman's backside, and I'm still amazed that something which resembled dental floss could have been comfortable.

Thongs-torture by underwear.
Having said that, I own one thong which I rather like, just because it makes me feel a little bit sexy and means I can wear tight trousers or skirts without the dreaded lines.
However, I once had to fly home from Italy wearing my thong because of a serious underwear packing miscalculation, and I can confidently say that thongs were not designed for wearing whilst sitting still for long periods of time.

Some of those stories were pretty funny.

I don't own a thong, and I've never worn one, except for when I tried my sisters on to see how I liked them. Shh!

They bothered me a little. I may or may not wear one. The thing would be explaining it to my ma. My sisters has a bunch of thongs, but mom would probably think less of me if I wore one. She thinks that I think they are incredibly nasty becauuse whenever I see them on sale, I joke around saying "here, mom" and the like.

On the other hand, I think they're nifty little things if you're wearing white capris, whatever. Yep.

But it is about one's personal taste, isn't it? Some people think thongs are cheap, horrible little things while others appreciate it and applaude it for it's "beauty".

Indeed, I know a few people who, like golden101, find them incredibly sexy to wear and wear them when they're keen on seducing their respective partners, and a few others who insist it is horribly uncomfortable and merely for the pleasure of "those men".

Speaking of thongs, my sister gave me one for X-Mas! I chuckled to myself how it didn't look good to recieve such gift from a sibling, but all round, I'm happy.

I've seen those thongs you wear with hipsters, and to be honest I think they look utterly ridiculous. Besides, I'm not about to pay $15 for a scrap of material that's smaller then a handkerchief!

from my point of view i love women with thongs but a lot of people say that women who wear thongs are dirty or they are sex freaks. I know there is no way in *** I would wear one because men are not supposed to wear them even though they sell them for men.

I'm just curious as to who said men aren't allowed to wear thongs. I've never heard such "rule" before.

But for me, I like 'em! Sometimes I can't stand them because I don't feel like wearing them. But other times, I don't like wearing my bikini bottoms. It just depends on the day.

I think thongs look sexy on anyone because they are thought to be "taboo" for some people. And since they're cut down a lot, I think a person has to be brave and have a lot of self-esteem to wear one. I think that quality is extremely sexy in a person.

hey!

I would love to wear a thong, tho my mom won't buy me one. I don't think it's offensive in any way. I think that a thong is a good piece of undergarmet (or whatever) that a girl can wear when she doesn't want her panty line to show.

i also think that it's a turn on to guys, and girls like to pleasure them but i think that if a girl wants to wear a thong no problem i rather girls do that then go commando!

luv ya,

When I don't want VPL, I either a) wear an untucked shirt that covers my bum, b) wear pants that aren't so gosh-darned tight, or c) go commando, because I for one don't see a problem with it.

I like thongs! I dont wear them when I have my period though, I feel so gross. I know people who do. I just think that its really uncomfertable.

I love getting thongs because they are so cute. I get the velvet and the colorful ones.

My favorite one is black and it has some sort of sequence thing on the front of it. CUTE!

Applause, indigodazed, applause from Haruka here. I hate thongs. They're just so very small and I don't even think I could figure out how to put one on. Dumb me. I went to camp, though, and everyone was throwing around their thongs, talking about how cute they were. I found it rather disturbing. Hot Topic(anyone else a non-mainstream west coast-er?) sells thongs with pockets for condoms, which is rather strange to me. On the other hand, I have a pair of guy's shorts that have a pocket inside the waistband that's the perfect size for a condom. Guess that works both ways.

Pockets for condoms? How amusing. Well, I suppose at least they're encouraging safe sex....
And i agree, they're overly complicated for such a small piece of fabric. A friend of mine wore one all day long before she figured that she was wearing it sideways.

You know, people have existed for thousands of years before underwear was even invented, so if you're wearing frequently washed clothes and would rather skip underwear, I see no problem with that. And I don't exist to please guys. The only time it's ever a woman's job to turn anyone on is when she's working in the sex industry.

*takes notes on Milke's comments* I should throw that statement about turning people on at the girls in my school who believe their one purpose in life is to be a sex object--without being paid for it.
