G String

A G-string is a garment consisting of a narrow piece of material that covers the genitals, a string-like piece that passes between the buttocks, and a very thin waistband around the hips.[1] There are designs for both women and men. Men's G-strings are similar to women's but have a front pouch that covers the genitals.[2] G-strings are typically worn as underwear or swimwear or as part of the costume of an exotic dancer.[1]

G String


G-strings are usually made of fabric,[3] lace,[4] leather, or satin. They may serve as a bikini bottoms or they may be worn alone as monokinis or topless swimsuits. G-strings are also be worn by go-go dancers. As underwear, G-strings may be worn in preference to panties to avoid the creation of a visible panty line, or to briefs in order to enhance sex appeal.

The two terms G-string and thong are sometimes used interchangeably; however, technically they refer to different pieces of clothing. G-strings have a thinner back strip than thongs, and usually a thinner waistband.[3] These connectors are often made of string rather than a strip of fabric.[5]

In the 19th century, the term geestring referred to the string which held the loincloth of Native Americans[6] and later referred to the narrow loincloth itself. William Safire in his Ode on a G-String quoted the usage of the word "G-string" for loincloth in New York Times.

Safire also mentions the opinion of linguist Robert Hendrickson that G (or gee) stands for groin, which was a taboo word at the time.[7] Rachel Shteir refers to Hendrickson's opinion in her book "Striptease" and adds that during the Great Depression, a "G-string" was known as "the gadget", a double-entendre that referred to a handyman's "contrivance", an all-purpose word for the thing that might "fix" things.[8]

The G-string first appeared in costumes worn by showgirls in the United States in Earl Carroll's productions during the 1920s,[10] a period known as the Jazz Age or the Roaring Twenties.[8] Before the Depression most performers made their own G-strings or bought them from travelling salesmen, but from the 1930s they were usually purchased from commercial manufacturers of burlesque costumes.[11] During the 1930s, the "Chicago G-string" gained prominence when worn by performers like Margie Hart. The Chicago area was the home of some of the largest manufacturers of G-strings and it also became the center of the burlesque shows in the United States.[8] Early performers of color to wear a G-string on stage included the Latina stripper Chiquita Garcia in 1934, and "Princess Whitewing", a Native American stripper near the end of the decade.[12]

The term G-string started to appear in Variety magazine during the 1930s. In New York City, G-strings were worn by female dancers at risqué Broadway theatre shows during the Jazz Age. During the 1930s and 1940s, the New York striptease shows in which G-strings were worn were described as "strong". In shows referred to as "weak" or "sweet" the stripper wore "net panties" instead. "Strong" shows usually took place only when the police were not present, and they became rarer after 1936 when Fiorello H. La Guardia, the Mayor of New York City, organised a series of police raids on burlesque shows.[13]

The American burlesque entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee is popularly associated with the G-string.[14] Her striptease performances often included the wearing of a G-string; in a memoir written by her son Erik Lee Preminger she is described as gluing on a black lace G-string with spirit gum in preparation for a performance.[4]

By the late 1980s G-strings had become widely available in the Western world, and they became increasingly popular during the 1990s.[15] Men's G-strings had developed from garments worn by physical culture and bodybuilding models,[16] and in 1994 a men's G-string was the best selling design of HOM, a luxury men's underwear brand owned by Triumph International.[2] In Africa the G-string has become a fashionable item of clothing for young women, and they are often visible above the back of low-rise jeans as a whale tail.[15] As lingerie they are sometimes worn with a babydoll.[17]

In modern strip clubs the strippers often wear G-strings and the customers often give them tips by placing banknotes in their G-strings.[18] The wearing of G-strings in strip clubs is required in some jurisdictions under laws that prohibit public nudity.[19] Some regulations cover the design of G-string allowed. These regulations have in many cases been determined by liquor boards and can differ significantly over a short distance.[3]

A G-string or thong is a narrow piece of cloth or leather, or plastic that passes between the buttocks. It is attached to a band around the hips. It can be worn as a swimwear or underwear by both men and women. The difference between a G-string and a thong is that a G-string has less material between the legs. This makes it look like a string. Variants of the thong or G-string include the "V-string" and the "T-string".

The G-string or thong is probably the earliest form of clothing known to mankind. It originated in the warmer climates of sub-Saharan Africa where clothing was first worn almost 75,000 years ago. Many tribal peoples, like some of the Khoisan people of southern Africa, wore thongs for many centuries. These early pieces of clothes were made to fit the male genitalia.

The G-string was first developed for men by primitive peoples. However, in modern days, Western thongs are usually worn by females. They first became popular in South America in the 1970s. In Brazil, it was originally a style of swimsuit that had a rear area that became so narrow, that it would disappear between the buttocks.

The origin of the term "G-string" is not fully known. The term was first written about by Americans in the late 1800s. They described the loincloth of Philippine natives. Others say the term came from the G-string on an instrument. The origin of the word "thong" is from the Old English thwong, which is a flexible leather cord.

Our most wanted g-string design. A simplistic design made for minimum effort and maximum results. They sit happily around the hips and the slight rise in the design makes them extremely flattering on all angles.

Leave it to Bella Hadid, the queen of Y2K trends, to take the visible G-string or whale's tail trend to the absolute extreme. The supermodel just brought the popular 2000s peekaboo style into 2023 with her latest photo dump, where she showed off the ultimate visible underwear in true Bella fashion.

When we play on the G string we should also consider the tilt of the instrument and its placement relative to the left hand. If you still feel uncomfortable while playing on the G string you might want to reconsider your violin placement and its tilt which you can change by adjusting your setup, such as shoulder rest and chinrest. Many factors come into play here and even a slight movement of the violin can change your playing for better or worse.

When you play music, please remember that the number assigned to each finger is not the same as on a piano keyboard. When you play violin on the G string, the notes and numbers are written in the following order: the index finger is 1 ( A note), the middle finger is 2 ( B note ), the ring finger is 3 (C note), and the little finger, pinkie, is 4 ( D note) .

1878, geestring, "loincloth worn by an American Indian," originally the string that holds it up, etymology unknown. The spelling with G (1882) is perhaps from influence of violin string tuned to a G (in this sense G string is first recorded 1831), the lowest and heaviest of the violin strings. First used of women's attire 1936, with reference to strip-teasers.

Alloys used for strings start from ore which is smelted using high heat to remove impurities. The material is cooled and forged into shape for conversion to wire. Our exclusive alloys used for Cobalt Slinky, M-Steel Slinky, and Aluminum Bronze strings are smelted to our exacting specifications to ensure optimum performance and consistency.

Our strings are made with the finest and freshest raw materials which are specified to exacting tolerances to ensure optimal consistency and performance. Strings consist of fine diameter wire which is supplied on spools. Each type of string consists of a specific combination of wire materials and sizes.

Wound strings consist of a core and a wrap layer. Cores are manufactured by cutting hexagonal shaped wire to length and twisting one end with a specific shape and twist count to attach a ball end. Once made, cores are loaded onto winding machines which spin the core while laying a consistent winding of wrap wire around the core.

Ernie Ball single strings are coiled and packaged individually in order according to specific Slinky gauge requirements. The Slinky sets are then processed and flow wrapped in air tight individual foil packs.

Packaged strings are checked for a quality seal using a pressurized water chamber which subjects packs to an elevated level of stress across every seal. This ensures that the packages are completely air tight and the quality of the seal is optimal.

Most ukulele players would agree that high G tuning best represents the way a traditional ukulele sounds. The high G-string gives it the bright, happy sound that is generally what people associate with the instrument. A ukulele tuned to low G, on the other hand, has a bit of a warmer, mellower sound. Even though it veers a little bit away from the traditional ukulele sound, there are several benefits to using low G tuning, and many ukulele players actually prefer it over high G tuning.

Galardi, 42, who along with his father owns a string of strip clubs across the country, has pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering and is cooperating with the government. His attorney declined to make Galardi available for comment.

Hopefully you've watched Stranger Things 2 by now. If not, it's time you heard the big news: there's a new character named Billy who's a bad boy with a violent streak and a habit of taking off his shirt and smothering himself in body oil. He's played by Dacre Montgomery, who revealed in an interview with GQthat for his audition tape, he stripped down to just a G-string, oiled himself up, and danced around his house. 041b061a72
