A model wearing a thong is a pretty common sight in Canada, especially in Toronto and Vancouver.
And yet there’s been a recent backlash over the practice, especially after a tweet from Canadian porn star Jenna Jameson sparked a backlash online.
In a tweet, Jameson, 28, wrote that models should wear their thongs so they can show their bodies topless.
“It would give you a glimpse of your natural beauty and confidence,” Jameson said in a recent video.
Jameson’s tweets drew a flurry of criticism, mostly from men, and a response from the Canadian Model Alliance has come out with a call to boycott models who wear thongs.
“It is so important to our industry to make sure that models are visible in the most positive light possible.
There is no excuse for a model to show off their underwear or not,” said Amber Sisson, an industry spokesperson for the Canadian Association of Professional Models.
The industry is still trying to figure out what the tweet meant.
Jameson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
For a lot of models, thongs are more than just a fashion statement, Sisson said.

(CBC) Jameson has been a regular performer in the porn industry since 2012, with a handful of recent productions.
She has been filmed in multiple scenes with a large group of porn stars and in a number of scenes with male models.
This past year, Jamesons latest movie was released on Vivid Entertainment, a Canadian film company that produces mostly hardcore porn.
She has worked with several Canadian porn stars, including Jenna Jamesons husband and one of the stars of the upcoming film.
In a recent interview with CBC’s The Early Edition, Jamesoni said that she and her husband are doing the same things she did when she was in the adult industry.
“I’m not doing anything that would be in any way, shape or form illegal or anything like that,” she said.
“I’m just trying to do what I’m doing to help people, but it’s a big, big lifestyle change.
I mean, I’m a grown woman, so I don’t want to take any risks with my body, but I think that’s what we’re trying to help with.”
