When I was 16, I spent the summer in Florida with my Uncle Ray and Aunt Penny, and of course my favorite relative of all, my cousin Eddie, who is a year older than me. Eddie at the time had a girlfriend named Allie, who was my age. We became great gal pals over the summer.
The three of us were all going to work at one of my uncle’s ice cream parlors. We tried to get all our shifts together. It was a fun job, especially when parents brought their cute little kids in. Although the kids often made a mess, but that is what kids do.
So Eddie, Allie and I all had the same day off. We decided to go to the beach, but me and Allie decided we needed new swim suits. Eddie went along when we did the shopping. Allie immediately found one she liked. I could not decide. Eddie suggested a thong bikini, but I was afraid of showing my butt cheeks in public. Eddie said this is Florida. No one would notice. Besides I had a great body perfect for a thong. (He had seen me naked once. The last Christmas his family visited ours, and he accidentally walked in on me while I was naked in the bathroom. I didn’t mind since it was an accident and he is my favorite relative.) Allie said she agreed I would look great in a thong. She said she wished she had the body for one. (Allie is a bit heavy set, but she is one of those who wears the extra weight well. She is active in school athletics and keeps in shape.)
So I buy a hot pink thong.
When we get to the beach, we are all wearing our suits underneath our shorts and t-shirts. We set up our blanket, umbrella and picnic basket, and then strip down to our suits. Immediately, people turn and start staring at my ass. I didn’t mind that. I figured people found me attractive, and I was not too modest. But soon two guys my age show up and start hitting on me. They come on too strong, so I tell them to fuck off.
After that, it got worse. Guys in their 20’s and 30’s stop by and start trying to pick me up. I have to tell you I do not look older than I actually am. I am most certainly 16, and these guys were all too old for me. One was there with his wife and two little kids. When they went off to play in the water, he came over and tried to introduce himself to me. Then came a guy in his 40’s and I could not take it any more.
Eddie saw my predicament. He gave me a towel to wrap around my waist. He then told me to come with him. There was a store near the beach entrance where we could pick up a new suit I could wear. Since Eddie blamed himself, he said he would pay for it. I said it was not necessary for him to pay, but he insisted so I let him. I picked out a blue two-piece which was much more modest.
No one hit on me after that, although one of the guys my age who come on to me at first did come up to apologize. He said he was out of line, and he liked my blue suit better. His name was Paul and he joined us. I ended up going on a few dates with Paul over the summer. He turned out to be a nice guy after all, and we still keep in touch.
I still have the thong. I will wear it again eventually in the right circumstance. Probably in private amongst friends.
