Are men losing their lust for women in thong underwear?
I was shocked to hear on the radio last week that a new poll showed that men prefer – by a wide margin – women in full coverage underwear over thongs. Apparently only 19% of men preferred the thong.
I was shocked. My wife was shocked. The 4-5 people I mentioned it to during the day were surprised.
So I did a little research. The largest poll I could find, done by Huffington Post and Ask Men reassured me somewhat. In that 2015 poll, thong underwear remained the most popular choice amongst googling men. But it was close. 38% of men said there favourite was the thong. Cheeky briefs (boy shorts) were a close second at 34%. I can get that.
Further research made me feel even better. I found the poll referenced by the radio DJs. HuffPo it was not. It was a tiny online poll by an obscure blogger that only had a few hundred respondents. Mots of the participants – jokingly I assume – said they preferred granny panties as their top choice.
It took me a while to track down the data, but I will be able to rest easy tonight knowing that the men have not lost their minds – the thong brief still rules supreme as our panty of choice.
