Re: How was your discovery to interest in loincloths?

Nowadays, there are many means and interpretations and origins of it, depending on the origin and the person will give that special touch by wearing this. It is great what you have done and your origin of your taste, I liked your experience in high school and I would have liked to do that with me ^^

Re: How was your discovery to interest in loincloths?

For me, it started in my teenage years as a way to connect with my First Nations ancestors. Made my first ones out of red flannel, and had a buckskin 'clout by age 18.

I still remember donning a red loincloth for the first time--I felt so masculine, strong, and beautiful. I still feel that way whenever I put one on.

Re: How was your discovery to interest in loincloths?

Many of us connect with our ancestors in different ways and ways, in your case, I like what you do to connect, and as you say, you are not the only one in front of this, I when in my free time and inspired, I use my loincloth to feel strong, sexy, wild, cuddly and give a naughty touch n.n

Re: How was your discovery to interest in loincloths?

For me it started in June 2009 after learning 2 really bad news in one week. My father's cancer and a serious accident of a very good friend. I was a little lost and I went back to reading an old comic from my childhood: "Rahan, son of the savage ages" to clear my mind.
By rereading his adventures, I wanted to have his life and I wondered what it was like to be in the forest with just a loincloth. And since when I have a low morale, I put on one of my loincloths and I go for a walk in the forest.

I was very sorry for what happened to your relative, but it will always live in your heart for the beings that we love very much, and your story of your discovery is very nice and I admit that all your Instagram is great and incredible, and you will have my support ^ w ^

How lucky you are, friend, that is good and you should take advantage of that virtue. ^^

Re: How was your discovery to interest in loincloths?

I think it was pictures in magazines or books, or maybe some TV features from far away places in the tropics, and certainly some re-runs of old Tarzan films on TV. At that time I was a schoolboy who loved to spend a day at a swimming pool, a reservoir, or my parent's garden just clad in speedo-type swimwear. But a loincloth I only tried to make myself in secret. That was in the 1980s.

Only much later (and, in part, thanks to this forum!) I re-discovered the loincloth and wear one not only at home, but also as an alternative to my still-beloved speedos.

Re: How was your discovery to interest in loincloths?

I don't remember when exactly it started, but The Jungle Book likely had a part. But the bigger draw for me was Last of the Mohicans, Dances With Wolves and Indian in the Cupboard. That last one was probably even my first actual crush, though I wouldn't admit it until only a couple years ago when I came out as gay. But yeah, ever since I can remember, I've found myself attracted to men in loincloths of all types, but breechclouts especially.

As for creating my own, I haven't really had the confidence to try it. But I have bought some pre-made ones. I have a wool breechclout I wear for reenacting that I think I posted a while back, but I wear it with a lot of other gear as well. I'm not confident enough in my physical shape to go shirtless! Maybe one day... I do look forward to being able to kit up again though.
