I know about five girls who wear
thongs, and I want to try one out and see if I like it. My best
friend says girls who wear thongs are skanky. This was after I asked
her to go to the mall to pick one out with me. (I do NOT want to get
one with my mom.) My friend says I can do what I want, but I’m
afraid she’ll think I’m trashy. Should I go through with it?
Dear Thinking of Thonging,
Whenever you’re confused, slow down!
Take some time before taking action. You don’t need to make a
decision today. Some girls like thongs; others don’t. Lots of girls
find them comfortable; many don’t. And it’s best for your friend
not to judge people by their underwear. If you do buy a thong, your
mom will probably find out. If she’d flip, factor this into your
decision-making. At the very least, don’t buy a black lacy number
or one that has “Hot Stuff” printed on it, OK?
