"Thong thursday! Ladies..if we can see your thong, you drink free all night long. Every thursday night at Cafe Iguana!"

A radio commercial I heard on my drive home....
What exactly is a thong? Imagine a strand of material that encircles your waist and another strand that attaches in the back, traveling down the crack of your buttocks and connects to a triangular patch which covers the genitalia and is attached the first strand of material mentioned.

A thong when worn properly is actually quite comfortable. Most who've never worn a thong often shudder at the horror of having a never ending wedgie, however those who have adorned these tiny pieces of butt-floss find that they are actually quite comfortable.

Some advantages of wearing thongs: Thongs are also worn by men. In fact, the first thongs were worn by male models in 1945 and can be seen in the photography of Bob Mizer.
