Speedo’s. Yay or nay?

  1. I am self-taught swimmer. I have no theories about speedos might help others. Men in speedos seem to be extremely attractive or equally revolting, I can never look away from either. The speedo seemingly becomes what it must. I am 26 years old, 5'5, weigh 125 pounds and am badly coordinated, except when I swim.

  2. I don’t care what a guy chooses to wear. Me? I don’t think I have the body type for it. Even when I’m in good shape. I think the only way I’d wear one is if I were in an environment where most of the men around were wearing one as well.

  3. Maybe because I’m from South America (ironically from a landlocked country) and went for vacations to Brazil from an early age so I’m used to seeing men in speedos at the beach, but…

  4. I have a friend who feels self-conscious about showing his knees. Thing is, they're just regular ass knees! I honestly don't get the issue.

  5. God help us Americans still have a bit of a Puritan streak in us and even today there is some vague sense of shame in a man being too revealing. Michael Pollan also thought that is also why many Americans still equate failure of self discipline (ie extremely overweight, addict, etc...) as something of a moral failing

  6. I mean in terms of the shortness I wouldn’t mind so much if I was more comfortable in my own body (wouldn’t mind other running around in speedos or naked for all I care, no matter how they look). However, tight pants are uncomfortable af to me and by far the worst aspect of thermal wear when I go running. I do not understand how and why anybody can wear pants as tight as speedos on their own free will. It’s torture.

  7. That's exactly why I don't like them, they remind me of old men. Old European men with hairy chests that smell like cigarettes. shudder

  8. Love them. Think they’re fun and sexy, and a gay uniform of sorts. Lol. I used to only wear them to gay beaches, but now I’ll basically wear them to any beach or pool. I also think they’re much more flattering than the baggy board shorts so many straight men love.

  9. Speedos, yes. But I prefer to wear a thong myself. Sure, now and then it elicits some hard stares from men and women alike, but I wear it well and get smiles as well.

  10. Love them on other people literally one of the sexiest things you could wear in frount of me. But on me no. I literally wear a swim shirt and shorts to the beach lol

  11. I just started wearing them after a lifetime of long shorts and the freedom of just doing it is great. Won't go back to wearing anything else now!

  12. When I turned 30 I stopped giving a single fuck and started wearing my speedos to the beach instead of just to friends pools. If someone has a problem with seeing me in a Speedo, look away. I’ve had way more appreciative looks than I thought I’d have.

  13. I love wearing them even though I’m not packing haha. More comfortable that giant fucking board shorts you see guys wearing

  14. I just feel so bad for all the comments saying that you can’t use them unless you have a certain body type. Be better. Anyone can use a speedo. It doesn’t have to look any particular way.

  15. Definitely yay. People nowadays have made it seem as if it's taboo to wear. Just like briefs. I try to find briefs in New York with some cute patterns and I can only find single colors or white. Speedos used to be very popular but for some reason someone made it a thing to not wear them 🤷🏼‍♂️ I 100% love them and briefs.

  16. Absolutely not serious question for all the guys that wear them how do you hide your Boner when you’re just sitting there at the beach looking at other guys?? I have a hard enough time hiding them in normal shorts lol.

  17. I am from Europe and they're not that common, at least these days. Then again I haven't been to every single European beach, so maybe I'm wrong, but here in Portugal you'll only occasionally see guys wear them. We do tend to wear shorts that cut above the knees though.

  18. Love them but wouldn't personally wear them cause hair sticks out in a non-appealing way. Maybe one day when I decide to wax the edges so that it doesn't happen.

  19. That’s a big yay for me! Just spent a week on the beach only wearing speedos and the tan lines are the best!

  20. Honestly to each their own. I personally think it can be kind of hard to pull off…I’m toned and still think I’m a little too thin to pull it off, but I wear it to the beach anyway.

  21. I would like to wear one but for some reason whenever I wear stuff like that I immediately get an erection 🥴

  22. They’re very popular here in Australia amongst all age groups. I personally wouldn’t wear one as I don’t have enough confidence in my body but I certainly don’t mind guys with nice bodies wearing them.

  23. Love them but I'm XS with decent package so the buldge is ridiculous to have in public. I'm not saying it's huge cuz it's so big, my small frame just exaggerates it and I worry about dick slip.

  24. In all honesty, I have never once been aroused by speedos or guys in them. They just don't do anything for me. I'd rather just see you in regular swimming trunks or nothing at all, no "leave little to the imagination" BS.

  25. I’m a nudist so naked is always my go to, but I prefer speedos over trunks because of the lack of movement and areas for sand to creep in

  26. I don’t even think not being fat is enough. In order to not look comically ugly in speedos you have to be approaching underwear model physique

  27. I do not have the body or ass for them unfortunately. Plus the neighbour downstairs has a mind of his own and i do NOT trust him to be in that situation.

  28. They're OK. I've worn them to gay pool parties before and if you have a hot body then might as well show off as much of it as possible.

  29. I say nay because they show clear vpl and that's not flattering for most guys. It looks attractive on a few select guys but on most guys it's a miss.

  30. I guess part of me will always be a '90s closeted American dude who is not going to out himself in public. I understand that it's a little different elsewhere..

  31. And what is the absolutely worst thing about getting an erection? Shows that everything's working? Most will hold for like 30 seconds, bounce a couple times to say hello, then fade down because there is no action about...

  32. I wouldn’t wear one myself but I’m good with others wearing them of course. I didn’t even wear one when I was super fit in 2018 haha

  33. I guess it depends on the person. Im a big ugly fatty so i'd defo scar many people permanently but for normal and attractive people they can look pretty good.

  34. Naked is way better and what’s a square foot of nylon going to really supposed to accomplish? “Hide that crack!!!hide thar package!!!”

  35. Always wear them for swimming, anything baggy is just unpleasant to wear in the water. Not everyone can look good wearing them though, that is a truth that needs to be acknowledged

  36. I don’t really have any beach/pool to wear them. Most places I go to swim are hetero-dominated and rocking a Speedo would make me look supremely out of place.

  37. I am STRUGGLING on this now. My husband and I get to do a honeymoon soon in the tropics, and I'd love something more revealing than the standard USA trunk, but don't want to flash my pasty thighs to everyone... mostly also I don't want to risk a random boner (that is VERY likely in my case)

  38. I wore board shorts to a public pool in Noumea and was asked to leave for not wearing a speedo. Apparently boardies bring sand from the beach into the pool, but I was hoping to spare my fellow swimmers the sight of 'fat 30+ white dude in budgie-smugglers with not much budgie being smuggled'

  39. I used to live in Sydney , (in the US now) I love the BONDS extra short trunk briefs. Can't find anything like them in America. Would someone send me some so I can get off the Andrew Christian (aka the Michael Kors of gay underwear) Cheers mates!
