Men seem to have a far more limited array of undergarments to choose from than women: jockstraps for sports, and briefs or boxers for everything else. But there’s one more option! For the more adventurous gentlemen among us, men’s thongs are also a valid option, and the zipped thong is a fun and sexy variation on this theme.
The journey from the loincloth to the thong isn’t really that far (and some may argue, neither are their wearers – just kidding!). Loincloths were initially designed and worn for practical reasons, simply to cover the genitals. Thongs follow on with the same function, but in a far sexier and stylish manner. Many men are introduced to thongs by their partners who enjoy seeing their lover’s assets presented in a different kind of package (pun intended). And adding a zipper to the proceedings brings a whole new concept to the phrase ‘easy access’.
Here are some important things to take into consideration if you’re thinking about getting your first zipped thong (or if you’re thinking of buying one as a gift for your partner). First, make sure that you get the right size. It’s best to start with a size slightly larger than your regular underwear size until you’ve discovered the best style and fit. There’s nothing more uncomfortable than a thong that’s too small. Next, once you’ve found the right size, don’t worry about any initial discomfort. It’s perfectly normal for a thong to feel a bit uncomfortable the very first time you’re wearing one. But just leave it on and before you know it you’ll have forgotten that you’re even wearing it! Men’s thongs are cooler and more comfortable that briefs, and they won’t bunch up like boxers do. And lastly, but possibly most importantly, remember to ‘mind the zip’. I think you can guess why that’s a key point.
Men’s thongs are provocative and sexy, and they can provide as much enjoyment for the wearer as for the admirer. Adding a zipper to a thong is like icing on the cake. In the world of fetish fashion, you can take things a step (or many steps) further with different fabrics such as stretchy and breathable laqué.
