We love asking you guys poll questions and then sharing the results. The last poll was what did you wear last summer as swimwear. You guys told us and here are the results;

I”m super excited the swim brief was the style most worn. And that board shorts were down to the bottom! We may not be in the swim brief friendly place but more guys are wearing them. Then we asked did you wear a swim brief or thong for the first time.

I was not expecting such a large number of you would have tried swim thongs! More and more guys are wanting to wear these to the beach or pools. Many have skipped the brief and gone straight to the thong.  We asked guys what made them wear these styles for the first time. Here is what you guys told us.

  • To get the best possible tan and I figured I earned it working out so much. No one judges and people have been wearing them for a long time.
  • Don’t mind what others think. Wear what I like to wear.
  • Reduced tan line
  • Sexiness of the brief
  • I was in the Caribbean, so it made it easier to get away with wearing a thong.
  • Decided to take the plunge
  • I always wanted to wear a swim thong, but never had the place to do it. I wore one to a secluded beach and in my back yard, so freeing. Hope to do it more again soon.
  • Because it’s great. Big shorts are unnecessary. The sun, breeze, etc feels great why not expose as much skin as possible. Hopefully, I will get to wear a thong or be nude outdoors next summer
  • Love how they look and feel in me and other men
  • I finally built up the courage… I have worn thongs as underwear for years but was always nervous to in public. I was wearing a Joe Snyder thong which is also swimwear
  • I have worn thong underwear for a while and decided to finally give a swim thong a try

Thanks for sharing guys. We hope this will get more of you to wear a brief or thong!

  1. Not surprised swim thongs are becoming more popular! I wore one the first time this summer. Agree with all the benefits everyone said!
