ANSWERS: 100
  • I'd have to be at least 90 and very deranged before I start wearing a thong. (I'm male)
  • There's not much of a limit, but a 2 year old baby shouldn't be walking around with a thong. I probably think the right age would be around 10-13 years old. It doesn't really matter because no one really sees it, or looks at it unless the person is a perv or is very interested in you. It's your choice but at the state of puberty would be right.
  • Personally, if I had a daughter I would *strongly* suggest that she wait until at least 15 years old (the same age I would let her start dating) to start wearing a thong. The thought of little girls in thongs is quite disturbing. I suppose a simpler answer would be "when you reach sexual maturity," since a thong is really kind of a sexual thing: No girls I know would willingly wear thongs if they didn't have (or were currently searching for) boyfriends. In response to AntigoneRising: That's true for you and for other women. But not the ones I mentioned. Remember, I'm going by example of women I know, and it is by no means a generalization for all women.
  • Well, seeing as the purpose of a thong is to stop you from getting visible pantyline through slim fitting trousers and skirts I would say anyone who's wearing slim trousers ought to wear one. I don't know about you but I'd rather my twelve year old daughter wore a thong than had her knickers showing through her clothes.
  • Why should there be an age restriction on it? It's just a different style of underwear. I, personally, don't care, nor do I think what type of underwear others wear is my business.
  • I think that if you need to ask the question, then you're not quite old enough yet.
  • Thong wearers should be old enough to recognize that wearing one doesnt mean showing it to everybody. Pull yer pants up!
  • Well, they're not my thing personally, but I don't see a problem with age really either. You wear the underwear you want!
  • well into your 60's
  • Old enough to know how to keep it from showing when you sit down. *shudders* EDIT (Nov 30 06) In today's society, that'd probably be about 20 to 25 years old.
  • it does not matter how old you should be to wear a thong if you like it then wear one.
  • I started wearing a thong when I was twelve. Mainly becasue I was twelve when I first bacame concious of my knickerline, especially when I wore white pants. I do avoid thongs as much as I can though, whilst I wouldn't consider them uncomfortable, they're not exactly comfortable either. Thus, I think 10 or upwards is a sensible age, but if my daughter wanted to wear a thong before then, I'd ask her why, and depending on the reason she gave I'd let her.
  • There is no age limit for wearing a Thong. If you like them wear them
  • well first why would the mom have to tell the kid to wear a thong when the kid dosnt even know what it is i think ur kid will start maturing at about 10 and up and will ask u and let them the kid will be interested in a thong when they care about how they look and i was fairly young when i started wearing thongs and from personal experience if it shows next to some dude u will get hit on so a make sure to tell ur kid to make sure it dont show
  • Who cares. If you feel like you want to wear a flimsy piece of fabric 'down there', then go ahead. Personally though, you may as well just go commando. If you're wearing underwear with the sole intention of showing it off you should have enough experience in this area already to be able to answer your own question. Edit: This being said, if you're one of those weirdoes who gets their infant daughter's ears pierced, please don't make the poor thing wear a thong - you'll retard her for life. I guess the age should be old enough to know that you're putting the thong on, not your parents.
  • Not a day over child birth.
  • 8 years old
  • I know it was really hard for my mom to decide when i she thought i was old enough, but i was 12. She probably did that cause i nagged her too much though. It's important to young girls to have what other girls have, and do what other girls are doing. Even though this isn't really the value we want to teach them, that's just how it is. =
  • They are so uncomfortable! At any age you wish to be tortured!
  • I would give serious thought to why the child wants to wear a thong. If it is for her comfort (strange, I know, but some find them comfortable) than follow her lead, no matter what age. Otherwise, I would consider why she's so interested in what her rear view looks like and who else is looking! I can't imagine teasing and peer pressure for panty lines, but if that was the reason, it certainly wouldn't crop up until the middle grades, so 10-12 sounds about right. It probably goes hand in hand with wearing a bra.
  • Old enough to know what a thong is.
  • There should be no restrictions on age. People should be allowed to choose for themselves.
  • Old enough to be able to go into a store alone and buy one with your own money. Young enough not to believe that the whole idea of a thong is some kind of perversion that signals the downfall of civilized society.
  • I don't think it's an age limit to that, it's induvidual.. i think i started when i was 12 myself, maybe a bit earlier...
  • I agree with old enough to go into the store and buy one for yourself.
  • why how old are you first of all
  • old enough to have a job. the thought of parents getting them is just to disturbing. ewwwwwww
  • I would recommend not wearing one until you are at least sixteen. Before this age they seem unnecessary. It is up to you to choose though.
  • seriously, i'd rather not wear one at all. haha goin Camando... either that or wear the short leg boy short cut... they're really comfortable...
  • Why are you wearing only one thong? In Australia we have little kids wearing thongs in summer because it keeps there little feet cool.
  • Well i started wearing them when i was...haha. i guess i must've been 12 or 13. Aside from the practical use of eliminating the panty line, I think thongs really just make you feel sexier. you feel different wearing granny panties than bikinis right? soo i'd say 15. i mean a teenager that wants to wear one will think that's late, but really. there's not a whole lot of reason to before then.
  • I don't think age has anything to do with the appropriateness of thong-wearing....but weight certainly does!
  • More than half the girls at my school wear one. I'm a 7th grade girl and a lot of people like 11 or older wear one so yea...
  • More than half the girls at my school wear one. I'm a 7th grade girl and a lot of people like 11 or older wear one so yea...
  • I would have to say 18. Anything younger then that is just asking for trouble. The way I see it if your pants are so tight that you need a thong to hide the panty lines your pants are too tight. And if your jeans are so low you need them to look cool your jeans are too low. To me a thong isn't just underware, it's loungerea and teen age girls don't need to be wearing loungerae. That's for adult women. And if my son brings home a girl wearing one she's going home and he's grounded from dating. No questions, no repreaves. Just done.
  • My daughter started wearing thongs at 13. At first I was a bit unsure about it but then we had a little talk about not letting them show and certainly not wearing only a thong under a short skirt! Of course with the cut of jeans these days it is going to hang out once in a while but it is not intentional and she fixes it as needed. It's all a matter of doing it tastefully.
  • well as long as they can wear them and can think of it as a mature thing or feel important because you are wearing them then you should be able to. only as long as your not wearing them just to impress someone else
  • Hooray for cultural nearsightedness! The idea of a thong being sexually suggestive (and hence inappropriate for younger wearers) is solely a social construct. http://tinyurl.com/2mrjlt
  • Well, I’m only 13 and I wear thongs/g-string. I started when I was 11 but I don't see it as such a big deal. Like honestly. It's just a pair of underwear and it really doesn't do anything. Maybe if you go off sleeping with guys just because you’re wearing a thong but what are the chances of that. Maybe a little oral sex here and there but that’s probably as far as any kid would go. Nobody wants to have a baby before they even reach their teen years. I find them comfortable. Actually, I wear them every day. I don’t know, maybe I’m just too mature but I’m a pretty good kid. I have no interest in drugs and I keep my grades up. So what if I’ve had my hand down a guy’s pants. I’m still alive. All in all I don't think it matters what age you start wearing thongs at. So what?
  • Never. They are awful. Half my answers to questions are me complaining about thongs. YUCK!

  • I don't like thongs. They're trashy. Couldn't you find some pseudo-sexy underwear that doesn't scream slut?
  • Old enough that there's something to separate and young enough that you can still tell that you're wearing one.
  • i am a mom of four girls, and i think the age should be between 16 and 20, i did not start wearing them intil i was 24 . they just looked to uncomfy for me.
  • Younger than this guy! Otherwise, as you can see, people will gather to watch you!
  • If the thong fits..
  • old enough that you know what they are and why youre wearing it. i personally cant see how you can stand having a string up your butt!! in this case, i would go for comfort, not fashion, thought in most cases i would go for fashion.
  • I think the right age is around 15 or 16. I would never let a ten year old wear one, they are kind of associated as a sexual thing, really. So yeah, it's kinda like giving a 13 year old condoms I suppose. I sometimes wear one, but not to show it off, it just depends what pants I'm wearing.
  • When you can buy them with your own money
  • I started buying them in highschool, but now looking at highschool girls I think you should wait til you OUT of high school!
  • Some people see what you wear as your own personal choice. Others feel that as a servant of god they, and you, should always wear what your minister says god wants you to wear, and always do what god wants you to do. Your choice is deciding if you are going to wear what you want, or your church wants. Then again there are parents. Every time you make a rational choice they are likely to step in and give you the I know what's best lecture, which would be fine except you are no longer five years old. The question is not if you are old enough to wear thongs, which are after all underwear and not visible to others, but are you old enough to wear hats? You may have noticed that some adults wear hats but children do not, except when they are dressing up and pretending to be adults. If you think you are old enough to make the choice of wearing a hat or not, then you are old enough to select your own underwear.
  • Underwear is about personal preference- but I don't know that I'd buy a 5 year old a thong. I say once they start wearing things like slacks and skirts and VPL could be an issue, then it's time to start looking at thongs. Wearing thong underwear isn't necessarily about sex- I wear them so I don't have VPL (Visible Panty Line), not necessarily because it's "sexy". So it's all a matter of taste and comfort.
  • I think you should be around the age of 12 or 13. Thongs seem a bit slutty. There very sexy and if you were to where a skirt your butt cheeks would pop out. If my doughter was 10 and wanted to where them i'd tell her no cause its not hard to tell that people are whering them and i wouldn't want boys drooling on her.
  • Old enough for the cost of the thong to come out of your own paycheck.
  • i started wearing them at 15 so i think 15
  • I think the wearer should be at least 15 or 16
  • it depends, do you mean the american thong or austrailian thong (meaning an american "flip-flop")
  • as soon as you are out of diaper you good to go
  • guys. it's underwear. does it really matter?
  • I guess any age once you're out of nappies / diapers.
  • I say 15 or 16
  • 16 - 18 depending on the maturity level
  • 16...any younger and they are just trying to be little skanks and should not even have to worry about a panty lines.
  • 16 is a great age, to let them start.
  • Old enough where you do not find them uncomfortable and over the age of about 16. Not at school.
  • Id say sixteen at least. Though it doesnt really matter. Its just underwear. Big deal. =)
  • where and when and with whom? i wouldn't go much below the age of consent on this one, since, in my opinion, thong wearing probably often leads to the other. my concern, of at least equal importance, is, how old should you be to stop wearing thongs? 50, 60, 500 pounds ...
  • I think I wore my first one when I was about 14. It's just underwear. I don't think it's as big of a deal as everyone else on here is making it to be.
  • I think the more important question is...what age is too old to wear a thong?
  • When your old enough to buy your own underwear!
  • When the person wearing it has enough sense to not let it all hang out. It's not sexy, it's trashy. Your underwear should only seen by someone you're intimate with. And with that being said, children have no business being intimate.
  • I think the better question might be how old should you be to STOP wearing a thong!
  • i think i started at about 19.
  • Permanent wedgie!
  • The matter is how your buttocks look like. If enough sexy, you may wear thongs even at 60. :)))) If the bums are not so good, maybe better even not to begin???
  • 18+ in my household.
  • Between the ages of 18 and 49.
  • 16 is good u know what im saying
  • i started to wear thongs when i was 13 because m friends did . and Mum bought me some . very sad
  • i would say 11 my sister does!!!
  • I don't know about the bottom end, but if you're over 50 you're too old!.. well, ok, there are a few exceptions. So 60.. 70 at the very VERY outside.
  • i'm male and wear them. I just hated boxers. I kept tearing them. It's not because of my weight (not fat) i just like them and my previous sexual partner said she loved them. But men, if you wear them, shave off the pubic hair. It will look better and the girls will love it in ways i dare not mention!!!!
  • whatever age you are that you decide you want to wear them (given that you are *allowed* to wear them kiddies) they're a great confidence booster and very comfortable, i wear nothing butt! <--heehee i *crack* me up! LMAO :D
  • Well I started to wear things at age12 because my sister was wearing them so I stole some from her drower and wore it to school I showed everyone of my friends they were so jealous
  • When you are old enough to earn the money to pay for your own underwear!
  • If you are male, then 113, and not before.
  • When you are old enough to earn the money to pay for it!
  • When its inappropriate to have a panty line showing. The purpose of a thong is to avoid the dreaded panty line. Yes, they can be sexy, but there are plenty of sexy options that are not thong.
  • The question should be how YOUNG should you be to wear a thong - imagine an 89 year old . . . ugh! Unless you mean rubber slippers, then any age it's OK.
  • whenever you don't want your pantie lines to show through your clothes.
  • well its up to the person im prochoice but no younger than a teenager
  • depends how mature you are
  • If it were my daughter? 30...or maybe never But for someone else I started wearing them to highschool when I was 16. I'm 19 now.
  • I started wearing thongs when I was 12 and I think from the age of 10 upwards is ok
  • 17 all the way to 65
