As you might have read in an earlier post (Operation Thong), I had the opportunity to wear the Cocksox Sonar Swim Thong as my first thong on the beach. This swim thong is made of high quality Italian lycra in a cool blue, white and black mirco camo print. They also feature a protruding shaped pouch and a triangle style back. I was very impressed initially, but worried about this maximum exposure. This is part of the Sonar Collection which also comes in a more modest brief and trunk style.

As you know I wore these a few times to the beach, both just for laying out and also playing in the water. I was concerned that the minimal pouch was going to not be adequate coverage, however the pouch was amazing! Its shape really pushed out a nice profile to hold you in. Even when getting out of the waves. The front is quite low (manscaping is a must), so be careful. The back had a great amount of fabric to stay right in place. I would recommend this swim thong for special events or somewhere that you want to be the center of attention.

The sizing for Cocksox is based of real waist measurements, not your jeans size, so please keep that in mind with ordering. Also, some Cocksox has some models available with different sized pouches; this style has a snug pouch, which might not fit everyone.

This swim thong has a lot of features I like; the shaped center seam pouch keeps everything in place and leaves little to the imagination. The stitching throughout is done quite well, no itching or adjusting. The waist seam features a tiny sewn in elastic waistband to help keep your suit up.

I am happy to say that I have worn this swim thong numerous times since the original post and will continue to next summer. It is a welcome addition for anyone who is looking to get some sun on those buns. I plan on getting a few more even!

Cocksox furnished this pair for review


Butts, we all have one. But is your butt beach worthy? Recently I was provided with a Cocksox Sonar Swim Thong with the assignment of wearing it in public. Some of you may not know that I live in Chicago, where we have a great gay-oriented beach, where yes… thongs are allowed.

Traditionally the only thongers you would see on the beach are older gentleman with skin tanned to a nice leathery tone. But I was going to do it! I arrived at the beach earlier than I would normally go, around 9:30am. I personally only wear speedos on the beach, so I of course came to the beach with the thong on, under a speedo, under shorts. I quickly disrobed down to the speedo and laid down on my chair. After surveying the people one the beach I managed to shimmy off my speedo to just the thong underneath.

Nobody even turned a head. I breathed deeply.

The feeling was freeing, I felt breezes all over my body. I laid here for an hour or so before I got up the courage. Up to this point you couldn’t tell I was wearing a thong. I had come to the time where I needed to flip over and let the sun shine on my pale butt.  In one swift movement I turned over and the sun was shining on my exposed butt.  A few people on the beach glanced over, but the world didn’t come crashing down! I spent several more hours work on my tan and made a morning of it!

Since my first beach thong day, I have been back many mornings. I don’t wear them intentionally around friends, but I find they are great for a good early morning all over tan. Here are some tips for first time thongers!

  1. Check local laws and regulation to see if a thong in public is legal. If not, it’s time to find friends with pools.
  2. Make sure you manscape for the thong, they tend to be smaller, lower rise and tighter!
  3. Apply sunscreen liberally, your butt is probably VERY PALE and shouldn’t be burnt!
  4. Have fun and don’t care about the haters!

When picking out the thong, you are going to want to keep in mind the following.

  1. It must fit! Keep in mind that you might need to size down, since your butt size is no longer a factor.
  2. Make sure the pouch fits, whether it’s a flatter style or something more enhancing like the Cocksox Sonar Swim Thong. I personally would recommend something with a shaped pouch, which keeps the goods in check better and lowers the chance of run-aways.
  3. Don’t pretend you are in Baywatch on the beach. You might hurt someone.

Have fun!
