Men who wear thongs. Underwear or swimwear.
First of all, let me introduce myself (sort of). I'm a 22 year old straight male who recently made the switchover to thong underwear. A combination of curiousity, and a gag gift from a friend led me to try one, and ever since then I've been hooked (so to speak). Girls generally aren't lying when they say that underwear like this is confortable, because it really is. After a while you don't even notice you have something "up your behind", and it gets exponentially more comfortable after that. Since that time (roughly two years ago) my thong collection has grown significantly, and they're now all I wear. I can't wear regular underwear without having it feel like I'm wearing a diaper and I'll be generally uncomfortable.
I use livejournal under a nickname I don't use for anything else, since not many people I know are aware of what I have on underneath. I've told a few of my female friends, who have been generally understanding and in some cases impressed, but I'm leery about telling my guy friends because they might change their opinions of me, or something. I live in Canada, and I'm not lucky enough to have WalMarts which have sections devoted to male thongs (damn you, America).
I frequent the "Thong Wearers message board" at http://thongboard.aimoo.com but that interface makes it difficult to read, although the number of members is quite interesting.
This is my first post in this journal, and probably the only one that won't be friends only. Ideally we'll develop a similar membership to the thongboard, and discuss things, but I'm going to make the posts default to friends only so we don't have random people come buy and defame us and stuff. Feel free to join!
