Ahhh, the thong. It’s divided opinions for a long time. Whether you are pro or against, there’s no denying that men’s thongs are a very popular choice. Not only are they stylish but they’re surprisingly comfortable, ensuring your manhood is perfectly secure no matter what activity you’re doing. While a thong may be a revolutionary and modern idea to some, the history of the thong is much more rich, with them dating as far back as history goes.
Before the ‘thong’ we had the loincloth, one of the earliest forms of human clothing. It was developed to protect, support, or hide the male genitals and first documented being worn by mankind in warmer climates nearly 75,000 years ago! Many tribal people wore thongs for centuries, and some still do, with them being more for functional purposes than fashion.
According to some fashion historians, the first public appearance of the fashion thong in the United States was at the 1939 New York World’s Fair and in 1946, Jacques Heim’s and Louis Réard’s original bikini had a culotte with a thong back. The demand died down a little, and up until the 90s, thongs were generally worn by strippers and bodybuilders, but has become much more mainstream.
