OK, so this thong is a lot of fun, but have to say it's hard to think of a venue where I'll actually be able to wear it -- which I knew when I ordered it, and maybe part of the fun, fantasizing about that! Outside of the bedroom, maybe at a very edgy bar? A late night surprise at a wild party? With a too-easily removed (& replaced) coverup at a Pride parade? The pouch does keep things in place; otherwise, you are naked except for the skinny straps up your ass (which I imagine would get uncomfortable after a while though the material is smooth). Again, as shown. I think the full $30 price is too much; I bought mine with a discount. Also, I appreciate Johnny's reasonable shipping costs -- which also give you patience because the standard USPS service is a little slow, but that's OK.
