Serious Question About Men Wearing Thong Underwear

I've been purchasing and wearing thong underwear made for men for about ten years now.   I've got a tough question and would like to hear from men and women, equally if possible.  

Should men who wear thongs shave their hair near the thong area or possibly their entire legs?

Honestly, I like my hair simply because it’s something that makes me look like a guy.  I'm not trying to look feminine in thong underwear either, I actually think thongs styled after jock straps look rather manly. 

Tell me what you think!

Sometimes I shave down completely but as I'm not very hairy in the first place, I usually just shave down my pubes and keep the legs, chest, etc natural

I'm proud of my body, and i show it when i can, and going hairless, just gives a cleaner appearance, and i do not feel like less of a man because i am shaven.

I don't like to shave closely. Luckilily I'm not that hairy, trimming my pubic hair and between my cheeks somewhat once in a while will do, at least in my opinion.

Been wearing thongs for almost 20 years now. There are times I don't shave for a bit but for the most part I shave clean from my waist down to the top of my knees. Both front and back.

For comfort and support thongs are better. I've worn both sport style boxers and thongs and thongs were better for workouts and long runs. Problem I have is with my inner thighs built up from dead lifting, so they tend to rub. With boxers I always have to pull my junk up every now and then just like a baseball player on national tv.

I am a 44 year old man and have been wearing thongs for about two years. What started my experimenting with thongs was after we moved to Florida and i found my underwear getting soaked while doing yard work. So I stopped wearing underwear for a couple weeks. Cargo shorts and no underwear equals no support at all. So I tried jock straps. And well my wife complained about the waste band riding up. I really didn't care because it was cooler. One night while searching for an alternative to jock straps I found the Calvin Klein mens thongs. So I said what the hell and I ordered a pair. After trying that first pair I soon realized that they were the most comfortable pair of underwear I had ever tried. Boxers have no support, I hated the wedgies with tighty whities, boxer briefs; both cotton and moisture wicking ride up my thighs and instead of having to deal with a wedgie I'd be having to pull them down on my legs.In short; thongs give the support I want and keep me cooler. The stigma of you must be gay or something to like having a thong in your butt crack is a total crock of &$?!. And whoever would think that or say that needs to check their own sexuality. You don't even know it's there. If every guy would have to wear a thong for a week...well I would buy stock in every manufacturer that made mens thongs because they would be flying off the shelves!

i wear thongs and g-strings and shave/wax my whole body.

I've been wearing thong underwear & swimsuits for about 15 years. I shave completely except for the hair on my head and arms. In my opinion, it looks better and definitely feels better.

I now shave my stomach, ***, lower back and the bikini area of my legs for that clean look. I'm not really a hairy guy to begin with, but surprisingly there's still a lot to shave. I really like how my stomach looks shaved. I still do not want to shave my entire legs though. I've always shaved my pubic area since the age of 20 or so.

it is sexy to wear thongs but i think it will better without hair

Yup, I would tend to agree.

like my underwear to be as brief as possible. things for men is a good idea but i will use one which has only a thread that goes in the but crack and front should be enough to hold ****! balls should be free from holds. i shave around my **** regularly but never shave legs! so i definitely think shaving the **** area will make it more sexy and feel more sexy! Thanks for the great idea!

I still want to keep my legs natural, but have now included small areas of my legs that are close to my thong. I believe the term might be shaving the 'bikini area' - meaning just outside the covering of the bikini/thong/whatever. I like the smooth look.

i wear thongs too

More power to you!

Wearing a thong does not mean that you have feminine tendencies, and shaving your pubic and anal and butt cheek area does not mean you have feminine tendencies.<br />
Its all a preference, if you want hair, keep it, if you don't want hair shave it.<br />
I shaved mine off, and to me its simply cleaner, and sanitary.and I prefer my female partner the same way.

Actually we are more into nudism but obviously one has to wear clothes sometimes and a couple we definitely prefer thongs as underwear. They look sexy, your back is bare, the string gives a nice feeling. Our favorite models are seethrough thongs as made by Eros Veneziani, really a great brand for sexy underwear in Europe. And with reagrd to shaving, yes, surely yes; being smooth is so much better for any reason, it looks good, it's much better for oral sex, it's elegant when wearing minimal underwear (like thongs). That means, both men and women.

Well stated and I'm in full agreement. Thanks for your comments!

Amen to that..

I shave my pubs bald for a clean look. Thongs with pubs are just wrong.<br />
As for leg hair, I trim my leg hair because I like them and like you I like the manliness it gives me.<br />
As for other body hair well it depends<br />
- Back hair: this is not recomended not even for the boxer underwear guys.<br />
- Torso hair (as in chest and belly): some guys are able to pull it off, it depends on the man.<br />
- Arm hair: I don't recommend any guy to shave there arms unless there job requires it (like bodybuilders and fitness models). Arm hair is a yes to all straight guys since it gives us a more masculine look.<br />
- Arm pit hair: I'll go for trimmed but in super hot summers I shave it all.<br />
- Facial and head hair: is irrelevant on how you look in a thong so it really doesn't matter.<br />
<br />
An important factor to wear thongs in public is to be fit, look good and be comfortable in your skin. It is unpleasant to see unfit people in thongs.<br />

Hope all this helped and keep on thonging my friend.

I wear cotton thong underwear in the summer (Hom Fredy string) and Puma microfiber thong sports underwear under my running tights. I do a bit of manscaping as a matter of routine but I'm not that hairy so my thongs would cover me even if I didn't. The most important thing to me is to remove the hair from around your back passage - it makes wearing thongs way more comfortable and hygenic. I have worn thong swimwear on a beach in Miami - for me it is really about minimising tan lines, but the affects can last a while - my buddies at the gym all ribbed me for a long time about my thong tanline...

i shaved my pubis hair all the time from above my thongs to bottom but dont shave legs

i am a man and i wear thong underwear i only shave my pubic hair when it starts to grow back

I've been wearing thong underwear & swimsuits for quite a long time. My preference is shave completely, including legs and underarms. It feel cleaner and neater and I think.....looks better.<br />
It's a personal choice

me too...

I used to wear 2(X)ist bikini briefs, NEVER BOXERS! I likes the way the 2(X) looked and felt on me. I never thought of wearing anything different until one of my best friends told me he wore thongs. He said they were comfortable and the best underwear he ever wore. I was skeptical until I tried them, Joe Boxer Thongs. Gotta tell you..they are the only underwear I wear. I am kinda healthy in the crotch area and they have great support. My wife likes the way they look on me as well. <br />
I used to trim my pubes but a year ago I started shaving and love the look and feel of being smooth

Im a guy and I bought my first thong a few years ago off line, I wear them to bed and a few times to work. But i just love the feeling off them. Im straight and think there is nothing wrong with a man wearing what ever he wants. I never would wear them in front of my girl friend. But she has seen my wear a bikini style underwear, which was tight in the back and would look like a thong when it rode up, She laughed at first but I don't think she cared.

I make sure that I shave my bikini area. I like to shave the "landing *****" above my penis (about the same width). I always loved the landing ***** on women and have had one myself since college. My balls are totally smooth (my GF loves it) and I also shave the underneath area too. As far as my legs go, I shave a bit at the top, next to my bikini area, but that's about it.<br />
<br />
I'm also getting tired of shaving & am considering getting waxed next spring/summer. Since I regularly wear bikinis & thongs to the beach & pool, I'd like a cleaner look that requires less maintenance than shaving every week.

I used to trim or shave or get a brazilian wax and wished the hair would just stay away. Being smooth feels cleaner and more comfortable. Six months ago I decided to try laser hair removal and the experience has been worth every dollar. I only wear thongs and I think they look better against the smooth skin. No more shaving or ingrown hairs and the skin is soft. Another benefit is the whole area is more sensitive too. My favorite thongs are the the softer, smoother materials and there are a great selection of colors and materials to choose from on the internet. It's fun to wear a bright colored thong under my clothes and know I am completely smooth underneath. Once in a while at the gym someone will ask where I bought my thong and compliment how good it looks. It seems like a simple personal decision really, they feel comfortable, they hold "everything" better and I think more guys would wear them if they knew how much fun they are. I put it on and forget about it. I've been wearing just thongs for more than ten years. Cheers to all those who give it a try!

i've been wearing thongs for 15 years and yes I wax my pubic area and shave my **** and balls

As my thongs are extremely scant I feel better and more confident shaving the entire groin area. I have enjoyed wearing a micro thong on a beach.

I thing not too much hair, but as you said, you shave a little, its good, i like hairy chest and back, and the thong looks great too, but i like shaved chest and back too, i think that i like men in thong no matter the hair, but not silly man....

I like wearing thongs and did for several years but last year I got very sick and gained a lot of weight.<br />
<br />
Since January I lost 40 lbs and I am wearing thongs again. I think I still need to loose 10 or 15 more pounds to get to look the way I want in a thong.<br />
<br />
I also shave my ****, balls, butt and ***. Both for looks and cleanliness.<br />
<br />
Many years ago when I first began to wear only bikini or thong underwear my wife made fun of me for wearing "panties". But over the years she got used to it. Now it is the only underwear she buys me.

One thing I like about thongs (for anyone, girl or guy) is that you tend to stay motivated to keep in shape, at least that's the case with me.

agree'd DK

Two things about guys wearing em....<br />
1. Gotta keep in shape<br />
2. Shave...the more the better<br />
Its that simple....fat hairy guys in thongs....not a good look.

I'm lucky, I'm not a hairy person naturally. However some"manscaping" is required (i feel) on my upper thighs. Still have hair but like to tell where the leg hair starts and the underwear ends. never had a complaint yet, even when i am lazy and go a week or so without shaving. My brother(twin) tried thongs a couple times when we were younger but he didn't like shaving his ****'n'stuf so it looked a little silly to me. I only wear thongs made for men too.
