They're just uncomfortable to me. I think they're sexy... but, just can't get myself to wear one!
Thongs are worn for only two reasons that I can think of... 1) To be sexy, 2) To prevent visible pantylines.
I don't buy the reasoning that they are more comfortable than regular underwear. Come on, you can't be serious!
I have one thong that I ONLY wear when I'm wearing a certain pair of pants to prevent underwear lines. Yes, this can happen to men too!
In Britain Tongs is an electrical appliance which we curl our hair with. Maybe this also means thongs...not sure.
In America tongs are Asian-American gangs. As in gang warfare, drugs, bad stuff. I don't think that's what the lady meant, couldn't be. I hope not.
I think it's better than reaching in to a pot of boiling water for an ear of corn with your bare hands.
Lol. Please clarify Ngria.
Are we talking, hair tongs, gang tongs or Sisqo Thongs?
Sorry the "h" is missing.
Thongs as in underwear was the intention.
I'm glad it wasn't the gang tong. Didn't think it could be, really) I'm glad you got back to us. I think we did figure it out, though. I didn't know that tongs were curling irons in the UK. Also, you've got to get rid of a lot of intimate body hair in order to make them look ok. That isn't comfortable to maintain, either.
Good deal. Me, personally, I don't like thongs. They aren't comfortable, I don't think.
That's a relief, all I could think about was that episode of "Two and a Half Men" when Alan broke both his wrists and needed his brother to help him pee, so he decided to use Tongs, (the Salad tong kind), to help his brother out!
Thongs on the other hand, like many things women do to look better, are not very comfortable after a couple hours...ouch!
I'm guessing it's "thongs" since this is in the intimate apparel section.
The first time I put on a thong bikini, I put the thong on backwards. I didn't quite get the gist of the thing...REALLY! You said it, sneakrocksolid, I'd rather reach my hands in a pot of boiling water.
You know, I really am quite clueless...
thongs are o.k. for certain occassions, otherwise a pain you know wear!
I'm just tired of seeing them hanging out everywhere. It seems to be the fashion now - to reveal it above your Jeans/trousers.
God, that's disgusting. And that poor woman CANNOT be comfortable.
Ohhhhh.That's what I see a lot as well. Is this fashion trend? Tacky!
That is Completely Gross!
Yet it is also an excellent Advert for Contraception!
I wonder if she could even find her Tong with an H? (or visa versa)
THere are the guys and gals who show off their undies above their pants, as though the undies are an accessory, like jewelry. Then there's your chubby handyman who doesn't know his arse crack is constantly showing. Totally different impact.
i wear thongs when i am wearing white pants...but most of the time no, they are itchy and I feel uncomfortable too,,,
I much prefer French knickers as they are comfy and look nice.
One thing to be said in favor of thongs- you don't have to worry about ride-up.
Wowsers! I don't recall thongs above the hip huggers waist line ever being a fad for adult women. The top portion of the thongs only, that rides along the hip were a fad back in 2000 and 2001 for teen age girls only.
As a woman, we wear the proper fitted/size thong for clothes we do not want to show panty lines or seams. A properly fitted thong does not cut into any part of the anatomy (hips, lips, or the dip at the lower part of your back - right above your crack). If they are uncomfortable, you are wearing the wrong size (because they are probably too small). If the are sucking into the crack of your behind, then you are wearing them wrong or your sucking your pelvis in and its creating the "vacuum" affect, fix your posture. One that I'd like to call "mail" or "hungry butt/a$$ syndrome" where it looks like your butt is trying to "eat" whatever is there.
A way to remedy this, is to fix your posture and your posterior will thank you for it.
There are countless options to go with a seamless look outside of thongs. There are seamless panties, they seem to work and you can have all the extra coverage and support that you feel you need.
- Feels like you're not wearing anything
- Feel sexy underneath your clothes without anyone knowing it ;-)
- Eye candy for your significant other (not the entire planet)
- No double bubble or crazy looking seamed butt look in your clothes
- They aren't for everyone (Eye FAIL, not CANDY)
- People don't seem to want to keep them under their clothing and want to show the entire world
- If you don't wipe properly, this could be a problem (skids) - and that's not eye candy at all for your significant other
- Wearing them too tight so instead of a double bubble, you have a "T" bubble...
Just thought I'd put in my 2 cents ;-)
Here's a shot for you from my hub, Why Thongs Are Not For Everybody....
LLS!!! Did you just finish spanking him? Did you make him wear your thongs for being a naughty boy?
Really one should be warned before a picture like this is posted. I was snacking on some chips when I saw this picture and started to choke.
I managed to swallow and drank a little soda right after. Yeah, still here. Thanks!
How do people get in such terrible condition.
I just lost my supper, this is gross, please no more
That's going to leave a mark...AAAAGGGH! The pain...my eyes...my eyes!
Just can't imagine the explanation for this!
I don't get how Hanky Panky thongs are one size fits all. How can they possibly fit anyone?
Interesting! Mocha Momma, thanks for all the information. There seem to be a science and an art to thongs. I always wondered how they went on. Where is the front from the back? They both seem the same to me!
Also wondered why they cost the same as the real panties when there is so little fabric in the thong? I guess they must be tedious to make!
Then again, if you don't want panty lines, is it worth the discomfort?
I love wearing thongs. Been wearing thongs & g-strings for about 15 years now. My favorite are from Rena's Wild Wear (an independent lingerie shop in Tampa). I also like to buy them @ Victoria's Secret...love their line of thongs/g-strings. Sometimes, I do wonder which is the front and which is the rear...one clue is the tag. I'm not too concerned about pantylines. I love it when my pantylines show through. I've never had a problem of them being uncomfortable...thongs or g-strings.
Seeing those two photos of the obese man AND woman gives new meaning of "one-size fits all"....EEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW
I could never date a girl who wore a thong.
Studies have shown girls who wear thongs have a higher concentration of fecal material (poop) in their thongs than girls who wear other styles of underwear.
Ladies, everytime you fart, microscopic particles of feces are expelled from your anus and get trapped within the fabric of the thongs, due to the fact they sit much closer to the anus than other underwear.
Boxer shorts and other loose fitting underwear allows the fecal particles to dissipate more freely.
So girls, the next time you're getting fruity with your partner and you whip off your thongs and rub them in your partners face, maybe you should ask if he (or she) enjoys having your fecal matter in their face.
I don't know whether to laugh or throw up, right now.
Thnx very much for the additional info. which I guess we all probably knew, and really did not need reinforced especially given I have just eaten my tea.
How come so much research on the subject Scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I am curiously revolted but need to ask where the particles disappate to in the case of the Boxer, onto your Burger perhaps. GROSS>
The study is true, however I doubt that the study takes into account women that have permanent wedgies from their fuller seat underpants. Go to your local Target or Walmart, have a seat and look around. For every woman that you see with a Wedgie in their pants, trust, there is pants and underpants in the crack of their buttocks (same proximity as thongs) to capture all of that Fecal matter.
If you use the same bath cloth on your face that you use on your body, your getting a face full of fecal matter ;-)
If you go to the bathroom and use your cell phone and flush, you're getting a face full of fecal matter.
If you keep your toothbrush in your bathroom uncovered and in plain view, you're getting a mouth full of fecal matter.
The food you consume (cereals, rice, grains, etc) are allowed a certain amount of rodent waste per the FDA.
Men who wear boxers and get wedgies, yup you bet, they have fecal matter.
Rule of thumb, if you wear thongs, it's great to make sure you wipe well, also there are plenty of anti microbial additives that you can add to your panties in the wash. You can also use wipes after you use the toilet.
If a man performs Oral on his mate, and she hasn't cleaned herself all day, guess what, regardless of the under wear she's wearing, he's getting a mouth full of fecal matter...
Humans are exposed to fecal matter everyday.
Be right back, gotta go throw out my toothbrush.
Is it customary for the modern day female to carry within her handbag moistened toilet paper sheets? It would seem a necsessity if your underwear of choice is a thong.
It just seems so unsavoury. You sit on the toilet, evacuate the content of your bowels then wipe a few times with dry sheets and then pull up your thong. The anus entrance will still be heavily stained with fecal deposits. Surely a quick wipe with something that is moistened will help reduce the fecal staining? Is this how the modern day, thong-wearing, female thinks? Or does she apply a more liberal 'dump-and-go-philosophy' with barely a wipe?
Yes, you're correct with regards to fecal material heavily staining peoples bathrooms. Everytime you flush, a fountain of microscopic fecal material is sent hurtling into the air and can land just about anywhere. This can be minimised by lowering the toilet lid to prevent those pesky fecal organisms from landing and then breeding on your toothbrush.
Women carry lots of things in their purses. Regardless of the underwear that I wear, I am not a fan of excreting anything and using a piece of dry tissue to wipe clean (enter flush-able wipes). I prefer a shower after wards . That's regardless of the type of underwear that I wear.
If you think that this thong and defecating thing is unsavory, I'd really hate for you to see some of the less than sanitary habits some women have. And how they interact with others after the fact.
Some women have more fecal matter on their faces and hands than most thongs and toilet seats... They are the ones that love to wipe, flush, and run and not wash their hands when they exit. Everything they touch is then contaminated with their little nasties.
If she means thongs then I wear them myself but I make sure that they don't show...and if I want them to show only let my hubby see And for me I find them comfy...I'm just weird that way lol
But I do agree that thongs aren't for ebveryone! And it is disgusting to have them showing
Sport thongs are actually super comfortable.. better than regular undies any day. Especially when wearing tighter track pants or dress pants, so you don't end up with panty lines.
thongs are surprisingly comfortable
and make you feel sexy
I use tongs on the barbecue to turn meat and to remove corn on the cob from the pot. They are very useful. We also have tongs with a very long handle which we use to dig clams from the bottom of the bay. I like tongs!

I had a hub request from a friend who was going crazy becauee every time she buys a new pair of socks and washes them, one sock of the pair is always lost. Any ideas? I'm looking for serious or humorous answers. Will be making a hub out of this.
