This year we are doing a deep dive into the reader survey results like never before. Today we are showing where you guys have worn swim thongs, briefs, shorts, and more. It’s interesting to see where you guys feel comfy wearing skimpier styles.

Public Pool

This one is not so surprising to me. you guys have worn swim briefs at public pools but not so much with the swim thongs. You guys are a little more “conservative”

Public Lake

You guys are not big fans of lakes. I will admit I’m not either but it’s def the land of swim shorts. But I have seen the boys on IG boating in swimbriefs.


You guys seem to be bolder at the beach. Swim briefs reign supreme but the swim thong is growing! Currently, 15% of you guys rock the thong.

Private Resort

Private resorts get guys to be more free in their choices. A large majority of guys will wear the swim briefs but resorts also give guys confidence to wear a swim thong. About 30% of guys rock a swim thong when at a resort.

Private Pool

Private pools are where we are most bold and it allows us to wear what we want. More guys will wear swim briefs and thongs. This is because we are around guys who are like minded and enjoy wearing the same things.

Private Sunbathing

We love tan lines! When we layout in private we want either a bikini or thong tan line. I have the philosophy you always tan in a smaller suit than you wear so you don’t have a tan line peaking out.

Tanning Booth

Tanning booths are where you guys wear the most thongs. I think this is because it’s the most private place you can be, and we feel free to strip down without judgement and scorn from angry side eyes.

We will have more results this week.
