The lovely Ryane asked me to explain this earlier today after a discussion of the vocabulary word Lemmonex swears she didn’t teach me, e-panties, turned to e-thongs. I know that this is a provocative premise from which I begin and one that I am sure lacks universal agreement among the population of people that appreciate women in various states of undress. So let me be clear – my blog, my post, my opinion – the sexiness of the thong is overrated to me.
Thongs are overrated in the same way that micro-skirts are overrated. For the same reason that Marvin Gay’s music is infinitely sexier than the dumbed down, barely literate seduction music of today, I prefer
cheekies, briefs, hiphuggers, and boyshorts to the thong. For me, sexy has more to do with that which is not seen than that which is.
Subtle is sexier than overt, words hotter than pictures, and whispers better than shouts.
