American women do not generally appreciate the charms of the old "banana hammock" but Keith wears them well.

Why do Australian guys insist on wearing speedos? They make the hottest guys so gross. I dated an Aussie and he wore speedos exactly once (In America no less) and I immediately bought him board shorts. Seriously, you would never catch Koby Abberton running around in those banana hammocks. There is never a reason to wear these. EVER!

I'm American but have lived in France for ten years now, and i've never been a fan of speedos either, but the problem is, that's ALL the men wear out here, and if i tried to get my boyfriend into a big baggy pair of saggy swim trunks, not only would he be self-conscious, but he'd be unhappy, too, which just isn't worth it here on the Riviera. So, sorry fleabrain, i can't give you a high five on that one. And FC from Dallas, you sound utterly ridiculous, keep your puritan rants to yourself.

Wow! He's a hunk- but LOSE THE NATY SPEEDOS!
- deb , bloomington, 31/10/2012 03:11
Nooooooooooo. No self respecting man wears speedos. For athletes only.

Great body but "budgie smugglers" ... seriously ?

Dang everyone all you can mention is how good he looks I noticed he is dressed improperly in front of a little girl Those Speedos are so improper for men to wear around children if you know what i mean, especially a father in front of his daughter Hollywood for you!
- FC, dallas, United States, 30/10/2012 17:12
Ugh, HATE HATE HATE men in Speedos. Ugh. And hate those tattoos. He looks horrible.

Why don't men realize that they look better in swim shorts rather than Speedos?
- Canadian, Canada, 30/10/2012 14:28
are speedos considered to be more acceptable in Australia and Europe? because here in the states, we raise an eyebrow anytime someone comes strutting out in one... that beings said, he looks great!

His body is good, his dick is small and his face is broke.
who would have thought what, OP?
EEWWWW no thanks
Those comments from the ladies are so sad. Why do they hate men's bodies so much? Keith can carry off a speedo, more power to him.
That's an especially horrible tat on his chest.
Nicole has gained weight. Good.
Women do not like men's bodies. They learned all their lives that any man can be a potential sex offender. Look at that story about Roseanne complaining about pre-op trans using women's toilets. They're all afraid of the penis. And when a man wears a speedo it's like they're being raped all over again. Poor things.

Americans are so fucked up about the human body.
Not bad, actually.
I would do him in a second
He's not ugly at all, wait for Idol. He's in bright sunlight, and he has light colored eyes and it's hard to see. That's why his face is scrunched up from squinting. I have the same color and I can't even go out without sunglasses.

Uh, you can't be serious. Uh, have you given this very much thought.
Girls don't care about Speedos because they are not sexually aroused by visual as a guy is. A guy will pop a boner at the sight of a tit or a gay guy at a great clothed ass. Not so much for girls.
The penis must be concealed. It is a tool of rape and oppression.
Speedos on men convey that a dude is trying to show off his genitals and lower body, which is considered perverted or non-masculine in the U.S. and increasingly in Europe. Men are not supposed to want to exhibit their bodies below the waist; that is what women do. ALso, as stated, men who display their genitals in public are viewed as dangerous, predatory, revolting exhibitionists. However, it is considered cool and masculine for men to boldly display their pecs, abs, and biceps.
[quote]that is what women do
only thick uncut Eastern European hunks should wear speedos
Bumping this thread to show my contempt for male body hating North American fraus!
He looks good.
R42 is full of shit.
I have been wearing "speedo" all my life. I have the body and I like them. I do not give a rats ass about anything mentioned in R42's silly post.
What was Nicole's attraction to Keith Urban?
No one knows, R51. An Aussie that will stick to the script?
You're 60, aren't you, Charlie?
I'm surprise he actually pulls it off. But he has very slim, narrow hips. Can you imagine a Jonas brother in speedos with their girlish birthing hips?
R53- nearly. I have the same body I had at 25 although my skin is definitely that of 59 year old. But I remain 6' 3" 180 plus pounds, washboard stomach I've had all my life etc. No steroids etc, just the gym, tennis, skiing, good food. I should add that I do not spend much time at the beach or poolside, and when I do I am in the shade. My tan glamour days are over- but I am greatful to be healthy and in good enough shape to keep up with any expert tennis players or skiers at any age- also life long "habits"!
Why should anyone be ashamed of any part of their body? And if you are in good shape and proud of it- wear what looks good.
The idea that I am a "showing off my genitals and lower body" at my age is ludicrous. And when I was young, that is what we wore. In Europe and most of South America, the sentiments expressed by R42 are totally non existant. A lot of American young men are very hung up about bodies- gay and straight- or so it seems.
Too bad that it's you that's full of yourself, Charlie, and not your speedos.
Keith Urban can't be a homosexual. In the world of Country Music, he would be shot on sight!
I am shocked they even allowed a foreigner into the Nashville Music scene. Country Music is American and Republican only.
He's has a teeny peeny from those pics.
That is something you never did or will know- huh R56? I have no illusions about myself. My best days physically are past- but life goes on, very nicely thank you.
Why are gay and straight men in the US sooo hung up on bodies and genitals? Why?
(guess it is our Puritanical streak- and all old time religion-)
In Country Music they are called "Homersexuals"
R57, Country Music is as straight as the WWF or the Vatican.
Every concert and award show looks like something out of 'Paris is Burning'.
The fans may still be in the dark, but we know better.
[quote]But he has very slim, narrow hips.
I think his hips are of average width. Not narrow like, for example, Michael Fassbender's.
Hate the tattoos, otherwise not too shabby.
His 80s long hair does not flatter his horse face.
I Keith Urban is hot. I'm watching him on Idol. He comes off like a sweet sensitive guy, the kind I'd like to cuddle up with on a rainy day before bending him over the couch and giving it to him hard.
Definitely comes off gay/bi on TV. It's in the little things.
R42 sounds like she's trying way to hard to have something to say.
WWF? What year are you typing from? 1988?
How weird is it that wearing a bathing suit to go swimming instead of wearing 18 yards of fabric like an American man would, is cause for derision?
Keith was a judge on the Australian version of "The Voice." He looks fine as hell.I have been watching a lot of the videos from that show on youtube.
The revelation for me is how hot Joel Madden comes off as another one of the judges. He isn't very pretty, but there is just something about him.
Love to think of Nicole Kidman stuck in Nashville dealing with Tennessee redneckery.
R31, outside of the US, they are referred to as "speedos" not "a speedo".
I've always thought Joel Madden was hot as hell.
I live in Nashville, and see Keith and Nicole fairly regularly. She's lovely, but I never ever understand how anyone could think he is attractive. He's a nice guy by all accounts, but just not a good looking one.
I'd have expected, um, more of him.
The new teeth help, but he is, generally, not attractive.
Keith, like Karl, was born in NZ, but Keith is Australian raised. I prefer Karl too. What happened to him?
The problem with speedos is that many out of shape men wear them in Oz - it definitely would be much better if they covered up.
Keith Urban looks great in a Budgy Smuggler! He's slim and fit! So sick and tired of puritanical Americans (and now Europans and Australians) recoiling in horror of guys in racers!
r80, your country doesn't have marriage equality anywhere. mind your business.
He really should do something about that hair. He looks a little like Prince Valiant.
R82, I'm pretty sure his hair is a wig.
I don't know for certain, but just from viewing it, it appears not to be his own hair.
I think his hair looks great! Very hip and very flattering.
All of you are so wrapped up in your narrow minded judgement. For your information it is the law in France that men MUST wear speedos in a hotel pool or public pool. Board shorts are ok on the beach, but not allowed in pools by law. The photo spread I saw showed him putting long leg shorts on as soon as he got out of the water. For those of you who have never traveled you should know, France is like Rome, when there you do as the French do, or you'll be asked to leave, receive a fine, or both.
He looked great in his speedo and no, that's not a wig.
Is he hairless? That did seem a little odd, am I wrong?
Don't they have two kids?
He was on The View today....SO GAY!!!!!!!
Poor Nic just can't seem to find a straight one can she?
Poor Nicole, she looks like a wax figure and she keeps on denying that she did something to her face.
[quote]and she keeps on denying that she did something to her face.
she admits she did it but keeps saying she won't do it again...."this is my last drink, I swear" type behavior.
Poor girl really was a beauty. Must be hard to have it end.
I think he has great legs.. He has a nice tight body but I agree on the tats.. overkill. I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers.
"Is he hairless? That did seem a little odd, am I wrong?"
I like that.
I'd rather see Karl Urban in speedos.
Isn't there a new gay rumor about Keith Urban this week?
mmmm mature quail
g.a.y. fug with a nice waxed body. why does nicole like marrying gay guys?
Where's Richard Armitage?
R104, I just realized that I haven't seen Richard & Lee threads for weeks here. Did that troll succeed in his guest to chase the fangirls away? (I didn't mind those threads, btw.)
Lee Pace hides out in Richard's speedos when he's not at DL.
Richard's getting rave ***** reviews in The Crucible in London, England.
He has a nice body, the speedos don't look gross. I think he's cute but I wish he would stop parting his hair down the center, yuck.
body is not bad. shame about the face
Aside from that horrible tattoo he looks great in those speedos. Keith has a hot smooth body!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
