Why do gay men wear speedos?

I’ve never understood this. I’m asking seriously. I’ve never worn a speedo or wanted to wear a Speedo in my life. Even the most masculine guys you see on Instagram , you see them on vacation wearing speedos. Someone please explain it to me. It’s not a trend it just seems like something that’s been going on since the begging of gay time

Europeans and Australians wear speedos too. In fact, for a while, I thought it was a culture thing. As for gays, gays like to wear more provocatively when it comes to showing skin. And speedo is a skimpy pick while having some modesty still. I detest thongs and G-strings in public though.

Speedos were invented during the French Revolution, but they didn't take off until Napoleon's campaign in Egypt and Syria, around 1800. It was hot and they liked to show off their bodies as they swam in the Nile.

OP, I apologize for all the impertinent responses you are receiving to your legitimate query. In fact, there is a good reason for the lack of a clear response. Those of us who are card-carrying homosexuals ARE NOT ALLOWED to reveal the whys and wherefores of Speedo wearing in a public forum. It violates the pledge we sign when we are recruited. However, if you take a screen shot of the both sides of the credit or debit card you used to join and post those images here, I will gladly furnish you with the desired information.

by Anonymousreply 48May 1, 2022 5:02 AM

I wear them for swimming, I do a lot of lap swimming at the pools, usually about 2 km a day.

Speedos are favoured by anyone that does a lot of actual swimming (as opposed to just sitting in the water or playing), especially competitively, anything baggy is uncomfortable and slows you down

And they are common here down under. I wear them to the beach when I do go, why have two different pieces of swimwear.. Its only America that is all uptight about Speedos etc, the rest of the world doesnt give a shit. Here its not a "gay" thing its just what guys wear to swim

To answer OP's question, I guess the reason more gay men wear Speedos in the US is that gay men have gotten past all the puritan hang ups and bullshit about being naked or nearly naked. Plus they tend to have somewhat better bodies than straight men (although there's plenty of exceptions)

by Anonymousreply 49May 1, 2022 5:08 AM

Instead of asking dumb-fuck questions OP, why don't you visit Australia where the Speedo was born, or Europe where it's also worn, and where those who do wear it -- gay and straight -- don't have your sick and sad body hangups.

I wear speedos at gay events or in Europe b/c I work out hard, wore them as a swimmer growing up, and I have a nice ass and a big cock. Speedos are when you get to show off all the work in the gym. I think that is why most guys wear them. I don't find them comfortable though and wear board shorts when just hanging around. Like I wouldn't wear a speedo as an adult at a country club.

I think they look trashy on most men because they don't have a hot body to show off. Muffin tops or a flat ass make for a shocking looking speedo.

My hypothesis is that like all of modern culture that has become all about being attention whores. The more revealing and sexual the clothing the more popular. So it has appeared that more gay men wear speedos but they actually have always worn speedos

I believe that because of the sex on the brain/ cruising like culture of always being ready to pick up guys and have sex is the reason gay men wear speedos. It’s like others have said , it is peacocking and putting their assets on display for being available to have sex at any time.

Conclusion: Gay men majorly wear speedos because they are over sexed and want to fuck all the time. 👨‍🔬 🤓

I’ll tell you why OP. Because gay men tend to be in better shape than straight men and they want to show it off to attract: men. DUH!

I’ve been doing it for decades, and it still works and it’s much more comfortable at the beach and in hot weather.. Also European men all are more likely to wear Speedo-like trunks because they are not hung up on male skin like Americans- towel dancing etc, which I find hysterical with all the body and crotch grooming and tatting. Americans are very hung up; like the OP.

I travel the world and the only place I've ever seen speedos associated with gays is the US, not sure about Canada, though. All men in Latin America wear speedos, children, grandpas, everyone. In Europe, even far east, they do it too. Middle east and many northern African countries too. It is an American thing, yet another stupidity brought by American puritanism.

BTW speedos were not invented during the French revolution, it was the attire of most natives in the new world, it's found in Andean mummies in mezzo America and in South East Asian burial grounds too. It's a natural type of clothing to cover the bare minimum in a society that isn't affected by puritanic Christianity and in societies with a hot climate.

I was overweight all of my childhood and throughout college. After moving to New York City, I decided it was time to get this weight thing under control, and so started a strict regimen of diet and exercise. It took me a year and a half to get down to what I considered was a good body for a gay man, but I realized I couldn’t sustain it.

I took a vacation with my mom to Cozumel, and right after we settled in the hotel, I donned my newly-purchased Speedo and we headed to the beach. We spent the afternoon having her take pictures of me – on the beach, in the water, by the pool, diving, lounging on the beach chair, etc. All the while she complained that I looked too thin and that my body type needed more weight.

When I got back to NYC, I decided that I wanted to maintain a weight loss, but not one as severe. I gained 20lbs over the course of that year and have stayed there ever since. And I’ve never worn a Speedo again.

...but I still have the pics!

This R198 and no mention of Brazil yet? OP in Brazil, it is not gay at all. Straight, gay, young or old, most men wear "Speedos" locally known as sungas. It's pretty common to see men in their sungas walking around, hanging out at the corner bar, or shopping at the supermarket, drugstore, etc.

Once, while at Citibank blocks from the beach, a gorgeous guy entered the bank in a damp, white sungas and flip flops, and that's it. I was looking at him, because he might as well have been naked because you could see everything, but no one at the bank raised an eyebrow.

BTW, I was looking for a photo so I googled Rio Ipanema gay and this FB group photo came up, Hmmm, I wonder who the Americans are? By comparison, they resemble puritans next to Brazilians.

OP, as many have said it is very much not a gay thing, it is an American cultural thing.

Because gay men want to be like entitled white cunts... shopping for the latest trendy speedo patterns at ridiculous prices ($100).

Then they and their wannabe-cunt friends get to spend all winter getting into their "summer body" - obsessing over the latest HIIT workouts and carb-minimal diets.

When summer arrives, they get to pack 25 of their favorite new speedos for a 3 day weekend. They get to do an ultimate fast the night before their big reveal.

And the day arrives, as someone above posted, when they can storm the beach and pretend they are Giselle Bundchen.

Speedo is no longer Australian owned. The styles the company markets to America, rather than Europe and Oceania, are cut much more modestly to cater for the more prudish US sensibility. There was an article about it some time back.

R97 Women don't just wear skimpy bikinis because "they can". It takes a lot of effort to look good in a bikini (same for speedos/gays) and thus the investment needs to be worthwhile. The reasons are (same for gays): 1) They want to attract sexual partners. 2) They want to measure up favorably against sexual competitors.

by Anonymousreply 312May 23, 2022 1:03 PM

I find both bikinis and Speedo-cut men's bathing suits to be weird looking, but people aren't wearing what they choose to wear for my sake.

I wear what appeals to me and I am fine with anyone else doing the same.

There are tons of fashion choices that I find weird and unappealing.

I also think it's weird that women have to cover their breasts at the beach. Bikini tops look awkward to me. I went to South Beach one time during college and was initially shocked by seeing boobs and within an hour, I realized what's weird is that women have to wear a strip around their torsos to cover the shame of their nipples...super strange. Do I want to see boobs? Not really. Do I want to see long, saggy, deflated boobs? Not really. But plenty of older men have them, covered in long curly gray hair, even, and no one forces them to wear a tube top.

OP, It is very simple. I think the Speedo came from Australia, it’s good swimwear. Trim. Simply that. I have 9 pair, mostly solid colors with side panels (some 3" sides, some 4.5") in another color. The key to not look like trying to be a male model is to wear one size larger. Easy comfort, the fabric moves. Men wear them because they look good in Speedos. I do, you should try it. Note, OP, Speedo is a brand, a line, not a name for all briefs. Just about all the photos posted here are not men in Speedos, but are fit -- and some not -- men in all types of tiny briefs.

I have never worn a Speedo-type bathing suit because I would feel silly in it. But that's a personal complex. Actually, I signed up for a swim team when I was a kid and I dropped out as soon as I saw I'd have to wear a tiny bathing suit that I thought looked like underwear.

Some men with great physiques look good in them but I don't find them arousing at all. I think most *gay* men who wear them tend to be the gym-bunny type or very thin exhibitionists who want a lot of attention and get a thrill out of their junk being visible. Like I said, I don't find the look arousing at all but to each their own.

To me, a Speedo kind of looks like a bra for balls.

Despite all the protestations on here that Speedos are just practical, for many gay men they seem to be a way to confirm their gayness, to set themselves apart from straight men.

It's the sartorial equivalent of Gay Voice, something we've all seen friends suddenly adopt once they came out. (Yes, there are plenty who are born speaking that way, but many do not and adopt it when they come out as part of a new gay identity.)

As for "why" it seems clear that gay men like showing off their asses and dicks and that a Speedo confirms all those hours spent at the gym.

A great example of all this is that thread from earlier this week about the Two Gay Bears who adopted a little girl and worse matching pink Speedos that matched her one-piece bathing suit.
