The thong or “tanga” is an undergarment and swimwear, worn by women and men that exposes the buttocks, consisting of a narrow strip of fabric that passes between the thighs supported by a waistband. The style characterized by a thin strip of material along the center of the garment’s back designed to sit between the wearer’s buttocks, connected directly to the bottom front of the garment and to both sides of the front at the top via a waistband. Basically, it is a narrow piece of cloth, leather, or plastic that covers or holds the genitals, passes between the buttocks, and is attached to a band around the hips. At times the rear area became so narrow that it would disappear between the wearer’s buttocks

There are a number of intermediate kinds of thongs between full rear coverage and a string rear. Like the Thong, the G-string is essentially a bottom covering that covers the pubis and leaves the buttocks bared; the term G-string is generally used when the vertical strap in the rear of a G-string is no wider than a string. Other similar styles include the Brazilian, rio, and T-back (T-string). The naming of the intermediate styles of thong is debatable, different vendors use the words somewhat interchangeably.

Thongs are available in a wide variety of materials, including fleece, silk, cotton, microfiber, satin, nylon, lycra/spandex, and latex and are also available in maternity styles. There are many styles available

But if you are looking for thongs that are sexy and avant garde, leather thongs are a perfect choice. The material screams the S&M theme and is sure to make a big impression wherever you reveal it. Any kind of these thongs are hot, but the thong variety also carries the added raciness of exposed buttocks.

Not made to be worn under clothes, men’s leather thongs may not be the most comfortable underwear around, but they definitely serve a purpose. There’s absolutely no way to blend in sporting one of these–unless, of course, you are rocking it at a leather convention. (If so, then a leather thong is probably mandatory.)

You may not think there would be a lot of variety when it comes to these types of underwear, but you would be wrong. Like all underwear, quality is key when shopping for leather thongs. At International Jock, there are several styles and brands including the Deluxe Leather Thong. One of our recommended products, this sexy item features superior craftsmanship, heavy-gauge material and elastic side panels to guarantee a proper fit.
