Actor Tom Cruise is reported to wear men’s thongs when he’s doing movie stunts because they give him more flexibility and he has dozens on set at the ready (http://www.dailystar.co.uk/showbiz/333182/Tom-Cruise-demands-a-thong-for-stunt-scenes). Deadgoodundies.com know that thongs tend to make men laugh or wince, but they’re essential in the right circumstances.

You really don’t want the audience distracted by your bits and bobs flying around as acrobatically as the rest of you…

Tom Cruise has hit the headlines over his choice of men’s underwear when he’s performing energetic stunts - thongs. Cruise is reported to have dozens at the ready when he’s filming.

The news comes as no surprise to Deadgoodundies.com founder Adam Davies, who’s sold tens of thousands of thongs to men around the world from his website, which has specialised in selling men’s underwear and swimwear since 2007.

“Mock ye not!” Adam says. “Thongs might raise a laugh among many men, or even a cross-eyed wince at the thought of the string at the back, but a thong can be the only option for men who want maximum movement and the right level of control. You really don’t want the audience distracted by your bits and bobs flying around as acrobatically as the rest of you…”

Deadgoodundies.com stocks more than 20 brands of men’s underwear and actively seeks out collections that offer thongs and strings for men. And yes, they are different! DGU define the difference between a thong and a string as the width of the vertical fabric at the back - a thong is wider than a string.

“Until 2011, thongs and strings were always by far the best selling styles on Deadgoodundies. Then they were overtaken by briefs, but this year thongs have made a notable comeback,” Adam said.

“Deadgoodundies has been called on to supply thongs, usually skintone styles that are all but invisible under clothes, or without them, for film and theatre companies. We don’t name names but we have shipped to the big studios, theatrical, opera and TV companies and individual actors.”

The most important consideration for a man buying a thong is highlighted in the story about Tom Cruise - it must fit perfectly to be comfortable and effective. Cruise’s are apparently tailor made.

Adam adds: “We have a unique and constantly restocked and updated selection of nude and colourful thongs. And for men who want maximum room to manoeuvre but can’t face the string, so to speak, there are dozens more options in jockstraps, though you can’t do a nude scene in one of those!”
