    I heard on the radio this morning that Cosmopolitan has pronounced the thong dead...what are everyones thoughts on this? Relief, sadness, surprise? Apparently the new thing is boy shorts...

      For guys? Yes...this is a good thing...Death to Thongs on Men!
      A Man in a Thong is just Wrong!

      For the girls...that's horrible news smile ! Many Florida beaches would not be the same...without it! (or perhaps this only applies to underwear...I may have gotten too worried for nothing!)

    Boy shorts are sexier. The thongs need to go away because all the jeans are now low cuts. Thong sticking out of low cut jeans looks tacky.

    Cosmopolitan is just a very (sorry everyone) stupid thing. They promote a lifestyle that has nothing to do with reality, but appeals to metrosexuals.

    Next thing they should do is announce that granny panties are the hottest trend now.

    I'd wait until Playboy says thong is dead...

    Stay off the extraterrestrial hub.  Sneakrock and Q! are at it again.  Mark just doesn't know when to quit and neither does Sneak and I'm just so tired of them trotting out the same old arguments, back and forth, inappropriately to whatever topic...

    I could never see the point of the G-string (I'm not going to call it a thong, because to us Aussies, that's a shoe). 

    I mean, what are panties for?  To form a barrier between your clothing and - er - bodily effusions.  That tiny bit of floss at the back isn't big enough to protect anything.  True, the shape widens out at the crotch - but put the thing on, and that part immediately squishes up and slides straight into the crack.  How is that hygienic? You might as well go commando, if that's all you're going to wear.

    I do wear a g-string sometimes, but only on occasions when I'm wearing little or nothing else...

    I've never thought there was a need for a thong on a typical Tuesday afternoon while wearing jeans.  Free trips to Wedgie-ville aren't really my style.  However, I'm not a supporter of the panty line either--it's not 1991.  If your underwear is perfectly outlined through your skirt, then it's probably a good idea to ditch the full-butt panties.

    In the end, it's whatever you're comfortable in--that's what's sexy!
