Speedos at the beach

Would you, or do you wear speedos to the beach?

by Anonymousreply 18201/26/2016

yes mostly because i hate the tanlines that longer trunks leave and, if i'm going to hike them up anyway, i might as well wear a speedo.

A little looser, R13. Square cuts don't make my thighs look as wide. Plus, they sit a little higher up so I'm not tugging up my suit all the time.

After the great Maui snorkeling disaster, no. Now I wear a swim burqua.

I thought, who is going to see me in a speedo on a snorkeling excursion? I don't know any of these people, and my friends have seen me naked at the gym. How was I to know that the excursion company would not only film the event, but from underneath me. Or that they would show on the return trip.

You should also know we're not allowed to discuss revealing clothing because of that grease fire R33 suffered in 2001, 2004, and 2008.

Finally, you should know we're not allowed to discuss exercise due to syphilitic lesions that make R33's movements so painful.

I was talking to this goodlooking dude who seemed very masculine and mainstream. He somehow let it slip that he wore speedos though he tried to backpedal. I lost all attraction and interest. It was too late. Wearing speedos speaks volumes about the kind of dude he is. He is not masculine and mainstream if he wears speedos. At least not in America. I just couldnt get over it and told him I was not interested. The kind of dude I am attracted to wears trunks to the pool/beach and boxers or boxer briefs as underwear.

by Anonymousreply 5402/03/2013

Nothing wrong with wearing a speedo, but just be aware that in America specifically, homophobia has labeled all men who wear speedos as gay.

So if you are in a redneck part of town (which is most of our country) chances are you might get some negative remarks.

This thinking is so phobic, in most other countries straight men wear speedos all the time.

Stick to the gay beaches and you are fine.

Americans don't just think that men who wear speedos are girly gays, they think they are perverted exhibitionists and weirdos who are a threat to public decency and morals. Women especially express disdain for guys that wear speedos. I have heard women blatantly say "ewww" out loud to the rare male wearing a speedo. It's like you are asking for public shaming if you wear speedos in the States. Of course, masculine bisexual and gay guys tend to join in the bashing of speedo-wearers. It seems to be a badge of American masculinity and identity to bash speedo-wearers.

I wear exactly what I want to wear without giving any thought to whether any woman is going to say "ewww". I don't wear speedos, simply because I don't want to wear speedos. I wear ordinary swimming trunks that fit right, just as I have since childhood. There is no way that I would wear big flouncy board shorts that look like women's culottes. Whether trunks or blue jeans, or anything else that I wear, you can look at my crotch and know that I am an anatomically correct man.

r71, I have a nice fit muscular bod and 8 1/3" penis. While I like going shirtless or wearing a tank top at the beach/pool because I like showing off my upper body, I am not some pervert that goes around showing his genital area off in public environments. Most men are not trying to show off their genitals in public. In fact, having a large penis makes one even more skittish about wearing revealing shorts, pants, or swimwear than the average male, not less concerned. It is creepy to want to show off your genitals in public, not something to aspire for.

Please R74, the idea that it is somehow grotesque to wear something where you can see your bulge is like saying a woman is grotesque for wearing something where her cleavage is visible.

r84, men don't show off their lower bods. It's all about showing off the strong upper body that makes men distinct from women. For men, we show off biceps, abs, and pecs. That is why so many dudes wear muscle slut shirts, tank tops, and sleeveless shirts. Men want to show off their upper bods as a show of strength and masculinity. There is no such incentive to show off the lower bod in public.

True. Unless the guy is competing in a swimming competition, wearing speedos is taken as exhibitionist by the culture at large. It's also generally considered effete and a mark of vanity.

That's not to say they shouldn't be worn, just that like any wardrobe choice they create a certain impression.

Exhibitionist or someone with no body shame?

by Anonymousreply 9002/13/2013

[quote] Exhibitionist or someone with no body shame?

It's taken as a "no body shame, he doesn't have a care about what people think and isn't self conscious about his body at all" thing only if the guy looks like someone who doesn't stress at all about the appearance of his body. You know, like a guy who doesn't worry about working out, eats what he feels like, has ungroomed body hair and doesn't spend time and money on trendy hairstyles. If the guy looks like he spends effort and worry on his body's appearance it's obvious he does care what people think and is self conscious about his body, and the speedo wearing is taken by american society as a vain peacock display rather than an indication of just not giving a fuck.

The first type of guy will draw some groans of "why must he subject us all to that?", but he won't be judged as much.

Within the gay community we understand that being a man seeking to attract other men means allowing for the fact 1) men are very visual and 2) gay men are a whole lot more eager to see evidence of unknown men's genitals than women are and don't usually find it overly aggressive or off putting like women can. It's not a major mystery why speedos are popular on gay beaches.

by Anonymousreply 9102/14/2013

r91, you make a major point with 2. Most women think that men who wear clothing that show their genitals are creepy perverts or weird at best. That repulses women, not attracts them. Most men echo women with that sentiment. Some gay men are distinct in our culture in thinking it is ok or even attractive to see the outline of a man's genitals in public. Of course, many or most bisexual and gay men also think it is weird or creepy, but enough openly gay men think it is attractive for it to be perceived as something a certain type of gay man does or wants to see. At the same time, the association with a certain type of gay men reinforces the social stigma against men wearing lower body revealing clothing.

The fact is that while guys spend a huge amount of time working out their upper bodies in the gym, most of these guys have undeveloped lower legs, even the buffest ones. That is not random behavior but behavior tied to some value placed on men's bodies. They are working out their upper bodies hard for no reason.

Not speedos per se, but a similar bathing suit, actally smaller. They are more comfortable, and practical for swimming.

I guess you're not going to the right beaches, R160

what beach do you go to, r161?

The "gay" beach in Chicago, Hollywood, is always full of speedo clad fellas. Alas, we have to wait six months to see them again.

The key to wearing speedos is having the great legs needed to make the small coverage look balanced.

I have noticed guys with average to nice upper torsos and nicely shaped legs and calves are the most successful in pulling off a speedo without looking like a big self conscious mary.

Only if a big, bouncy Latin bubble butt is hugged by the fabric, a speedo is acceptable attire.

During a trip to Louisville, gay adult film star Jessie Colter visited the recently re-opened Kentucky Kingdom. Jessie, like myself, tends to opt for the shorter side of men's swimwear. Upon arrival at the park, Colter was allegedly informed that his briefs were acceptable for wear at the park.

However during his stay at the park, Jessie was allegedly approached by a LMPD officer asking that he leave the park or face arrest. According to this article, a "LMPD officer allegedly approached Jessie, called him ‘queer’ and threatened him with arrest, for wearing Speedo swimwear. 'He informed me that several Public Safety Officers from the park had warned [me], which is 100% false,' Colter added."

Colter did decide to leave the park, and no official complaints against the park have been filed. Kentucky Kingdom has been contacted for a statement, but at time of publication I have not received a reply. This story will be updated once I do receive word from their team.

Kentucky Kingdom does outline a dress code on their site, which in summation gives them the right to refuse anyone for a suit the do not deem to be fit their standards.

"Guests must wear shirts and shoes at all times while at Kentucky Kingdom, except when inside the Hurricane Bay water park. Proper swimming attire is required at Hurricane Bay. For their own safety, guests may not swim in cut-offs or other clothing with rivets, zippers, or buckles. Kentucky Kingdom is a family-friendly theme park and reserves the right to determine whether a guest’s attire is appropriate."

While there has been no response from Kentucky Kingdom a local twitter user does seem to corroborate Jessie's story.

Would Kentucky Kingdom allow this swimsuit in their water park?

im 57 i have worn speedos all my life, i like them people stare. but im not wearing them for them. im not over weight but luv speedos

by Anonymousreply 17305/15/2015

I wore them whenever I felt like it from 15-35 - then I politely retired them. I go to the beach mostly in Northern Italy and Southern France. One of the towns is a working class middle class resort and those old straight darkly tanned men where their speedos till they die and they look fine in them. Being a pale irish flower, I just can't.

I do, but 99% of DL'ers would scream "Mother make it STOP!" if they saw me.

by Anonymousreply 17505/15/2015

The boys are all in speedos until teenage years. The teen italian and french boys, not so much. German, Russian misc eastern european tourists of all ages, yes.

I used to when I was 30 lbs lighter. Now it wouldn't be pretty. I like sexy men in speedos, if you got it, flaunt it.

If you've got the body for it, then by all means, please.

Even if you're a fattie, they are fine by me. They dry quickly, and are great for beaching.

Here's the Kentucky Kingdom offender from R171's post (in case he didn't pop up for you either).

by Anonymousreply 18101/25/2016

For reasons best left to a therapist to explain, I feel better about myself with a Speedo tan line. And since I won't use a tanning booth, there's really only one way for me to get it. So, yes. I DO wear a Speedo to the beach. (Full disclosure: I wear it under board shorts and take those off once I set up camp. When I leave, the shorts go back on.)
