I think swimwear and underwear go hand in hand. I started my love of undies wearing bikinis and that moved into swim briefs as well. I think we all want to feel just as sexy at the beach/pool as we do in our undies.

However, that said we still have a long way to go to get more guys in to swim briefs and swim thongs. Here are some results of the Reader survey:

This number really surprises me in a good way. You guys have worn them in public and on the beach. The first time you rock a swim brief can be nervous as hell. I remember my first time. Taking off the shorts and relaxing in skin tight swim brief can be amazing.

Each year more and more guys wear the swim thong. It amazes me the number of guys who have skipped over the brief and gone straight to the thong. A lot of these guys are our straight readers. I have seen a growing trend in the swim wear industry to make more thongs. Plus when I look at our Twitter/IG feeds we see may of our readers/friends wearing them all over!

We have most of you guys wearing swim trunks and briefs. Which are a great thing. Luckily the board shorts are on the decline. I think the main factor in wearing swim briefs is a place you feel safe wearing them. Not a place where you will be called a names or gay. It does happen.
