Men in Speedos

If a guy’s belly and love-handles hang over his waistline, I can understand why he might shy away from wearing a Speedo.  But what about the skinnier guys?  What’s up with those baggy outfits that sag down to the knees?  How do you swim in them?  Obvious isn’t it, male indoctrination, American style.  Never mind how comfortable they are, or sexy, or the fact they make swimming so much more pleasant . . . “real” men would never be caught dead in a Speedo.  Too bad.

When I lived in New Mexico, one of many memorable experiences was having a governor like Gary Johnson.  A thoughtful, logical man, he never shied away from speaking his mind, no matter how politically unpopular his position might be.  I have never admired a politician more.  He wasn’t afraid to sanction the legalization of drugs (he believed people either will or will not use drugs whether they are legal or not, and that the war on drugs only plays into the hands of criminals), nor was he afraid to get out and do a little jogging in his Speedo. (Sorry, no picture of the Governor.)

If you can’t swim nude the next best thing is a Speedo.

  1. THIS SITE IS SO NAUGHTY(GOOD) ITS SUMMER TIME HERE IN NEW ZEALAND AN MY SPEEDOS ARE OUT,(NOT LIKE ME) I HAVE SOME LIKE THE GUYS ARE WEARING IN PICT 7,8,9……I LOVE GETTING THE SIDE WAY LOOK FROM BOTH THE GUYS AND THE GIRLS WHEN WEARING THEM AND YES THEY SHOW YOUR PUPPIES……….

  2. “If you can’t swim nude the next best thing is a Speedo.”

    Like the head turning beauty of a shapely female body in a well fitted bikini so easily catches the eye of appreciative onlookers and bikini officianados as she passes by, likewise does the welcome and pleasing sight of a well cared for male body wearing Speedos, or some similar comparable neatly hugging brief swimwear designed just for men. 

    Swimwear eye candy male loving men and women.

    When the body looks as good as the one in the yellow speedos above and the next in the blue, and likewise in ‘Speedos-A Good Way to Enhance American Beaches’: the three in orange, red and green; the red in the chair;  the light blue and wet; the pair chatting in sunglasses; and for this writer the best of all is the last man standing wet in yellow…!

    What’s more for those of us even just a liitle self conscious, they – Speedos and their brazen imitations prompt a justifiable if somewhat vain concern for a fit, markedly masculine and preferably fat free waistline.

    Yes of course it does take consistent work, discipline and egotism and certainly as we age the battle takes on a whole new dimension.  Oh to have my youthful body again. Tee he…!

    But let’s face it nobody (Yes Im generalizing) wants to look like The Fat Controller (from Thomas the Tank Engine) squeezed into a a poorly cut ill fitting bikini bottom on a busy day at Brighton Beach, Bondi, Biarritz, Surfers Paradise, Mykonos, Waikiki or even the Black Sea.

    Of course anybody and everybody is entitled to wear whatever they like (and they do to chagrin of we self appointed fashion police) when out by the pool, river, lake or beach, it’s a wonderful free world. 

    However, really and truly it is nice (if a bit self indulgent) to feel nice and be a nice view for others too. 

    Beauty is of course always and only truly ever in the eye of the beholder.

    As for me, yes I’m a speedos man, I love wearing them and always have. Bottom line (no pun intended) they feel good and they make you feel good, and if you look after yourself, it is flattering to get noticed, by which ever sex or both.  

    Like the song: ‘you’ve got to exaggerate the positive’

    None of these baggy board-shorts for this swimmer.

    Splash….

    • Julian, you are lucky enough to live in Australia, where men aren’t too inhibited to wear Speedos. Actually, my guess is Australian men are more enlightened in general.
