This paragraph caught my eye:%0D %0D 'American men have an aversion to displaying their bodies in public,' one German visitor blogged. 'Ever since gay men came out of the closet in the '80s and showed us who they were, straight American men went into the closet to show us what they weren't. Before the late '80s men wore shorter shorts and swimwear was short and fitted. Men used to be so free and liberated then. Now they are scared.'%0D %0D Amen!

History of the Speedo

Given that over 50% of Americans are now classified as "morbidly obese", I don't think anyone wants to see more of them in a speedo... Better they should be as covered up as possible.

So true! Ever since gay men have been associated with tight fitting clothing, short shorts, and speedos, straight culture has shunned that type of clothing. Back in the60s and 70s before gays were really out there, men wore tight and fitted clothing. Thankfully this has not caught on in the rest of western culture.

No, it doesn't look "masculine." Those board shorts look silly, just as silly as if they were wearing a thong. Neither is "masculine."
Guys wear board shorts because they're afraid they'll be accused of being gay if they wear something that's cut above their knees. It's peer pressure that makes them wear silly looking "shorts" and they're not man enough to wear something that looks good. It's a continuation of body shame from their younger days and they can't overcome or outgrow it.

I still can't get out of my head a guy I saw in orange lycra speedos at a gay swim meet 20 years ago. Pony tail, phenomenal body, and the most eye-popping packed in lunch, which had everyone buzzing. Pure magic.
The thing about Speedos reflects America's childish Puritan hangups with the male body. But the pendulum will swing again. In another 20 years or so I suspect cocks will again be outlined in trousers like they were in the 70s.

It has a lot to do with the women. If they didnt think speedos were the garb of gay men, they would buy them for their men. And the men would wear them. Women buy most of straight men's clothing. The funny thing is, most women probably really like how speedos look, but they just dont want everyone to think their guy is gay.

I certainly don't think speedos are for everyone, but I also don't think a person should be looked down upon for wearing one. It's no one's business at all! Look at all the fat, fugly chicks who waddle around in way too small a bathing suit... We may not love that, but we just roll our eyes and look away. It doesn't become a media story. People were generally healthier in the '70s and the body types of young people tended towards the lean. Hart Bochner and his blonde friend in Breaking Away personify what I'm talking about; the trim, healthy, attractive young man in a speedo as a matter of course. No steroids, six-pack abs, fake tan, waxing, etc... just a guy in a small suit.
As far as lifeguards go, board shorts actually prevent them from swimming as fast as they should be in order to save a life!

Spring Break 2012 - Knees! Knees! Knees!
Male college students are wearing shorts that are at or above the knee. The old calf-length board shorts seem limited to junior high and some high school students.
I saw Speedo-clad students at two beachfront hotel pools. They were competing in some swim events. No college males in Speedos on the beach but a few were wearing square cuts.

I wear just a regular swim trunk to the pool, but when I'm lying in the lounge chair, I hike up the sides for a more full coverage tan. I can't believe my eyes when I see young guys laying out in LONG board shorts and they actually keep tugging the legs DOWN if they happen to ride up above the knee. Why would you want tan lines that begin at the knee?? (I know someone will say, "Why would you want tan lines at all?!" I mean this for people who like to be in the sun...)

R92= Eff. Troll who realises the Webby is on to him. Just say it, bitch.
Short shorts on guys who aren't fat says to me they have the confidence not to give a fuck about what advertising/'society' tells them. A recent Fosters beer advert scoots around the issue of whether it's okay for a straight guy to allow his friend rub sunblock onto his back and the 'experts' on the other end say "It's fine but lose the 'budgie smugglers'" i.e. a very clear but coded homophobic message designed to appeal to Neanderthal straight men.
How they got away with that I have no idea. The REAL man wouldn't give a fuck if people saw two buds helping each other out and assumed they were a gay couple.
God I fucking hate advertising.
The fact is, if you're lean and have at least a modicum of definition and are also relatively young looking, break out the trunks or Speedos, because you'll probably look good in them. Board shorts are conservative immature fratboy bullshit, unless you're actually surfing.

What r90 said. Most young straight guys in America are way more body conscious now than anyone would like to admit. They like to be covered even in locker rooms.
And you just aren't going to expose that much of your body if you dont like how it looks in the first place. Women have always been like that, and now the men are the same way. Add that to the current clothing style you'll find no one in speedos.
By the time most young guys get over their body consciousness, they are older and not in shape. And most American guys get fat after 25 anyway.

The mostly young gays who say that speedos look like female bikini bottoms are so conditioned by the straight mass media that they can't clearly think for themselves even as gay folk. They don't read Maxime but damn Carmen Electra should wear those speedos.
Speedos came into fashion during the unisex craze that started in the 60s up to the mid 1980s. Men and women wearing almost the same thing, gender free clothing, hair styles etc. Sci-fi shows almost always showed the future as being advanced and unisex which was a trending thought back then. Only after decades of conservative culture has the unisex trend disappeared. All men wear blue. All women wear pink. It's an ugly world out there and ain't because of speedos.

Long shorts and bathing suits are more a result of the influence of black athletes starting with basketball players. Before their influence, everthing had gotten really short through the 70's. Starting in the 80's, blacks had a real aversion to wearing short shorts. Bathing suits just followed that trend.

PROVO, Utah -- A Utah police officer fired for dropping his pants and flaunting a green Speedo during a "Princess and the Frog" skit at a school is getting his job back.
Cody Harris filed an appeal after he was dismissed from his position as a Provo school resource officer in May. The Provo Civil Service Commission decided Wednesday that Harris should be reinstated.
Provo police said in an email that the department still backs its initial decision to fire Harris, but it will honor the commission's decision.
Harris was dismissed after Provo police said he removed his pants to show off the Speedo-style suit and made inappropriate gestures and comments while a group of female students were nearby.
Harris will receive training to work in the patrol division.

David Duchovny said he regrets wearing a red Speedo in the pilot episode of "The X-Files" during an appearance in New York with former co-star Gillian Anderson.
ADVERTISEMENT The two actors appeared Saturday night at the Paley Center for Media in New York to discuss the show, which celebrated the 20th anniversary of its debut last month, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
Anderson said she was told she won the role of FBI Special Agent Dana Scully on a Thursday and by Saturday she and Duchovny were in Vancouver filming the pilot.
Duchovny said the show's creator, Chris Carter, wanted him to wear swimming trunks in the episode.
"I said nobody swims in boardshorts," so he wore his own Speedo. "I have regretted it ever since."
Anderson said she and Duchovny were often in bad moods when they had promotional photo shoots for the series because of the intense filming schedule required to produce two dozen episodes per season.
The shoots were held on weekends and "it was all day and that's your one moment off," Duchovny added.
"We were doing interviews every week," Anderson added, saying they didn't realize the popularity of the series until the third season.

In order for speedos to be acceptable in America, you have to have role model macho dudes wearing it, such as football/basketball players and hip hop artists. It would take a macho revamp too, perhaps masculinizing the cut somewhat.

Speedo is a brand. You can buy styles that are not the classic "Speedo" … square-cuts, board shorts, jams, even towels. But the nylon brief cannot be beat! Anyone looking good and in good shape looks good in them. Just don't go for one too tight. I like the brief with the 3" side panel. The 1" is just gross, makes you look all dick. No need for that. The water polo model is great, too. Often you can get a good deal from the company, on sale, the odd color combos and prints that didn't sell through last season.

Are you guys allowed to wear loose swimming shorts in the swimming pools in the US? I went swimming the first time for over 10 years earlier this year as part of my physiotherapy in public spa that also had many big swimming pools. I was wearing my loose Adidas swim board shorts and after just a minute in the pool a lifeguard/employee came to tell me that loose shorts are not allowed.
I tried to protest that they are swim shorts made especially for swimming but no, I couldn't wear them. Apparently the machinery that cleans the water get easily clogged by the wrong kind of fibres so you can only use tight trunks that are made of spandex or whatever that material is called. I had to rent a pair and there were only two kinds of trunks available: speedos or tight swim trunks.
I'm always amused by the hate speedos or tight trunks get from the American guys when here they are the only thing we are allowed to wear in the pools. I'm certainly not complaining because all the men wear tight trunks. It's a bulge fest.

Interesting thread, with a clear generational divide.
It's not surprising to me that the rightward shift in American politics since Reagan brought about the corresponding increase in social conservatism that I see here. In fact socially conservative sloganeering is what Reagan used to bring the country to the right in accordance with the interests of the business lobby.
Other points come to mind but I'll leave it here, except to say, I suspect all DLers against speedos here are from the Reagan generation and after.
Boardshorts are beach and swimwear that says No 'mo.

Speed-NO! Girls ban budgie smugglers on the beach
MEN, it's time to give your skimpy Speedos to the nearest Oxfam! Budgie smugglers are officially a fashion faux pas as two-thirds of women say they prefer guys in swim shorts, according to a study by travel agent On The Beachight and barely-there swimwear in a big fashion NO this summer.
An overwhelming 98% of British women would prefer their men not to wear snug Speedos during their holiday, according to a study conducted by travel agent On The Beach.
The survey of 1,500 British holidaymakers revealed that only 2% of girls would like to see their men sporting tiny pants on the beach, with two-thirds choosing swim shorts as their preferred option.
However, 13% said they would rather see their man wearing the more tight-fitting swimming trunks.
Alistair Daly, chief marketing officer at On the Beach, says: "We often see pictures of celebrity men wearing tight-fitting Speedos on holiday but our survey suggests that girls are not keen on their partners doing the same!"

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.
As a gay man that grew up in the area, I have received my fair share of hate and discrimination because of my sexual orientation. 4th Street Live's dress code is a prime example of a double standard: women are practically allowed to wear whatever they chose, but a man can not wear a tank top, low cut shirts, or shorts that are too short. Granted, I understand it's within the establishment's rights to put forth a dress code policy, but why the double standard? Why is it ok for women to show off their bodies, but when a man does it we are asked to leave or put on more clothing?
A Speedo may be a little out of place at Kentucky Kingdom, but at the end of the day ask yourself if it's out of place because it's inappropriate or because we, here in Kentucky, have made it taboo? Sound off in the comments, or feel free to hit me up on Twitter, @TheKenGent. I'd love to hear your take on all this.
UPDATE [July 10th]: Kentucky Kingdom office has reached out, and will be in contact tomorrow in regards to a statement

I say bullshit to this! 80-98 degree weather, and you're walking around in board shorts? American men have simply become puritanical. You see it in the gym locker rooms where you have all the towel dancers. If straight men have become so afraid of their bodies being looked upon by a possible gay man then they are the ones with the issues.
Somewhere in this thread Black guys are mentioned, and from what I've seen at the beach this is very true. I've seen a number of Black guys wearing cargo pants, a tank top, or T-shirt, who jump into the ocean wearing all of that. They don't even take off their shirts! This is nothing but body shaming, or afraid of being perceived as gay. Just stupid!

R340, your comment makes no sense. Anyway...from what I could understand of your posting, you must have forgotten that you're on a gay chat site. Who cares what women hate or like?
But, if women do hate men in speedos it can only be because of the attention that "their" guy is getting. Look... if you have a great body, whether you be a man or a woman, you're going to get attention. I'm as gay as the sky is blue, but I have seen women with drop-dead gorgeous bodies, who wear wearing bikinis, who have caused even me to stop, and go WOW! If you got the body, SHOW IT!!!
This reminds me of a guy in my gym. Cute, quiet, "boy next door" type. Think "geek" or "dork" in a nice way. Ya know...the Sears catalogue look. Well honeys, you wouldn't know it by the way he dresses, but when he is in his underwear...(I'm having palpitations already), Armani, Gregg Homme, Andrew Christian, to name what I have seen...and he looks GREAT, and he is HOT as hell!!!
He reminds me of that old cliche; "Be a lady in the streets, but be a whore in the bedroom!" WHEW!!! That boy is hot!!!
Anyway...if you've got the body, then show it! I hate seeing these good looking guys in those gawd-awful board trunks. It's too hot for all of that clothing.

R343, the point is that the fact that most Women ridicule men in speedos has a huge effect on prevailing attitudes towards speedos in America, wherever the sexual orientation or gender. I don't think it is because women are jealous of the attention men theoretically would get in speedos. After all, women love to see buff shirtless men showing off ripped abs and huge biceps. Moreover, you don't wear underwear in public, so there is no Concern for jealously, but young women sure do lampoon men who wear bikini briefs or tighty whitie brief underwear. I think people just think men in speedos are creepy exhibitionists, or, very feminine. That is the public mainstream perception of men who wear speedos domestically. American Men, straight and gay, usually avoid speedos because they associate it with public exhibitionism, foreigners, creepiness, or feminine males. Until they no longer have that association, they will remain very unpopular in this country.

Luke 16:15 says in part 'what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in he sight of God.' Since being elegantly clothed is more highly esteemed than is being merely well dressed; and being well dressed is more highly esteemed than is being poorly clothed; and even being poorly clothed is more highly esteemed than is being unclothed, being naked must be more acceptable in God's sight than is being well clothed. Therefore, if speedos should be outlawed it should only be after board shorts and all other swimwear offering more coverage than speedos have been outlawed.

btw, comparing the fashions between the U.S., Europe, and Eastern Europe, I had to check out very recent beach photos of a formerly Eastern European country that's now part of the West and is in Northern Europe.
The conclusion is,
The size of men's shorts is inversely proportional to their age.
— aka the older the shorter, the younger the longer (and usually better-looking :).
But rarely do boardish shorts go past the knee, like they often do in the U.S.
So, for people who are conscious that their bodies are out of shape or more, but who stil want to go on a beach, then board shorts are perfect.
Truth to tell, speedos only look great guys on who are in good shape.

There is nothing remotely feminine about speedos. Masculine and feminine guys both wear them. It's the guy who might make them appear feminine, not the article of clothing itself.
There is absolutely nothing hotter on a well built guy in my opinion.
Next we'll be hearing that masculine guys only wear boxer shorts too. Pathetic.

Comments from the net:
-This last one’s for you, fellas. If you’re on vacation in Europe or competing in a swim meet, you’ll fit right in wearing a Speedo. Otherwise, give us a break and keep a little more of yourself to yourself with swim trunks that won’t make us blush when we look your way. Rod Stewart hasn’t exactly been rocking the Speedo look all these years. (personally, I think Rod looks great!)
-Perhaps those of us who wear Speedo style swimwear do it for OUR comfort and don’t care what others think. Less is more when swimming or wearing wet cloth on our body. Get over it.
-I find that people complain not so much about the speedo but the figure of the man wearing it. It's this odd societal attitude that wearing exposing clothing is a privilege for skinny people only.
-I wouldn't be seen dead wearing speedos/swim briefs. I imagine my mum had me wearing that type when I was little. But now? Good grief no. I have not been swimming in a while, but I seem to remember most chaps wearing swimming shorts. When they say Europe - I don't think they are including the UK I don't think you will find many e.g's of average men wearing swim briefs on British beaches... (fat turd)
-Men in long swim trunks = THIS year’s fad. Ever see a tan line that stops at the waist and doesn’t begin again until the knees? NOT pretty… or handsome. I notice that it’s not a man writing this; how would you (or any other woman) like to be told that you should wear a swimsuit that covers most of your thighs?
-I would not be caught dead wearing the droopy dorky drawers that most American insecure idiots were. When I go to the beach I want to be comfortable and enjoy the sun on my skin. Why do American's feel its ok for women to wear normal swimwear but expect guys to wear these ridiculous long johns.
-If I look as great as Rod when I'm his age, I would wear a Speedo. And I'm female.
-I've gotten speedos as a joke gift, but the joke was on the jokee as I wore them out when we went to the beach. I've always been 160 pounds of twisted steel and sex appeal...
-Hey, Liz, if you like trunks, wear them yourself. It's like trying to swim in a parachute. I prefer skinny-dipping myself; but I wouldn't want to make you blush. That's another beach no-no.

In the States, speedos are extremely unpopular because of who wears them. The men who wear them are usually way out of shape, older, or very uh, unmanly. If football players, hip hop artist, or Marines wore them, they might be more popular. But the strong stigma against them is tied to the unpopular group of men who wear them.

Here's a woman that doesn't like men in speedos. However, I think it's more like someone is worried she may not be able to contain her own excitement, therefore fearful of seeing men in the things.
No! Keep those Speedos off American men!
By Jamesetta M. Walker The Virginian-Pilot © July 9, 2013 A response to Simon Doonan's Slate column, "Why Are Guys Afraid to Wear Speedos?"
OF ALL THE THINGS to organize a pro-movement about, the wearing of Speedos in the United States should be the last.
It's a Euro-Mediterranean thing, an underground fetish. That's where it needs to stay.
If I were to go to the Oceanfront and see waves of men in Speedos, I might not ever go to the beach again.
First, the Speedo throng is not likely to be full of calendar-worthy beefcakes. It overwhelmingly would include flabby, gorilla-hairy dudes. I'm not just saying that. Statistics on American obesity bear me out.
OK, stats might not back up the gorilla-hairy part, but I'm sure you can imagine how it would be based on what we've already seen.
Second, men, good manners dictate consciousness of your junk. Some stuff is meant only for your mama or your mate to know about.
That's not stopping guys of all shapes and sizes from taking to the Web and to the waters to strut their stuff in some supposed backlash against board shorts. There's a Tumblr page and a Facebook site dedicated to encouraging guys to wear Speedos. The mission on the Facebook page proclaims "the Speedo is coming back to stay!"
Not in the good ol' U.S. of A.
I polled 10 American men on whether they'd wear a Speedo. The age spread was mid-30s to early 60s. The majority appear to be exceptionally fit.
Their reactions ranged from a terse "No," to a shake of the head with that "you must be crazy" look, to a profanity-laced diatribe about indecency.
To his initial "No," one mature fella added this caveat: He'd wear one under the condition that a bet was involved and that he got paid handsomely.
I hope no one bets him. He has children who have to live in this country.
I asked one of the more cosmopolitan men why he wouldn't wear one, and I got a lengthy explanation about how "that's just not what men are supposed to do." A man's business should not be on display.
I concur. And neither should a woman's, for that matter.
I can't think of one good reason to publicly cavort wearing a Spandex patch.
If one is about to dive in and swim competitively, I guess he needs the advantage of a Speedo. Otherwise, what's the attraction of frolicking in male briefs two sizes too small?
Please don't tell me.
No, wait... narcissism, perhaps?
Go ahead, put yourself on display. Just don't go too far in Virginia Beach. A thong-style Speedo could land you in jail, according to city code section 22-10 - no exposed pubic area or buttocks.
I'm not getting my tankini in a twist about it. On a bright, summer day chill'axing, one should look like whatever kind of fool he desires.
In America, if we see you coming in a Speedo, we will clear the beach for you.

-Great .....a story on men's irrational fear of speedos and a slide show of women in string bikinis.
-It's a generational thing. My generation of males had no problem wearing tight jeans, shorts, or swim suits that left little to the imagination in the 1960s-80s. Today's "men" are little more than overgrown children to chicken to display what they've got yet love it when their generation's women wear skin-tight clothes. Hypocrites. The ladies are waiting for you to pull up you saggy, shapeless drawers, boys. Stop dressing like 5-year olds.
-I think the real fear is that visible junk may be construed as perverted behavior. Family values in this country are so whack that people want to clothe naked statues.
-Either you wouldn't look good in Speedos or you have an issue to deal with concerning your body--get to a gym.
-It is a strange dichotomy in this society. Mainstream films can show full female nudity and all manner of horrid violence, yet the male genitalia remains off limits. And certainly men are not encouraged to "celebrate their bodies" as a form of liberation as modern women are. A man's "junk," as this article sadly puts it, is more often seen as an image of shame and aggression than anything to be celebrated. Perhaps it is time for the Penis Monologues?
-Men's pubic region is not exactly an attractive area, so why is it a surprise that we don't want to wear a speedo. Nobody wants to see that. (too funny!)
-I love speedos, as a protest against the TSA I once dropped my pants and put said pants on the conveyor belt at LAX airport back in 2004 because they wanted me to "step aside". They wanted to arrest me for indecent exposure but couldn't because the little blue speedos I was wearing are considered swimwear and cover up what needs to be legally covered. I walked through the metal detector and asked them if they still wanted to frisk me and to quote the over paid, under educated TSA lady, "Boy, put yo pants back on!" Needless to say, but people were cheering and clapping for that. After my pants were back on they asked me why I was wearing it, I said I wanted to go swimming after I got to my destination.
-Men like being able to talk smack about women, it gives them prestige among their small-brained buddies. Listen to men at a beach watching women, talking about that one's a dog, etc. But men do not want women to see their stuff and be able to rate and denigrate them the way they do women.
-Some of us still believe in leaving something to the imagination. For those who feel they have to display their junk for all to see, I say don't worry about them they are already doing it. For those who some might feel are afraid to do this I say, you need to learn something about modesty and dignity. Most that don't show their junk to strangers IMHO are those that respect themselves and those they come into contact with.
-I'm not particularly a fan of speedos, but having lived in Europe and elsewhere for periods of time, I have to say I am amazed at the prudishness of so many American men...from the oversized (baggy and almost ankle-length "shorts") to the baggy-assed jeans, some guys are way too uptight about letting their attributes be admired. (However, that having been said, if I appeared to have "zero" upfront, as the guy in the accompanying photo apparently has, I would definitely be hesitant about wearing a speedo, for sure!)
-Our society is so uptight. Personally, I am female, and I wouldn't mind seeing more men in speedos or short square briefs. I'd rather see a dude who's got some color sporting a speedo than a pale, pasty guy with knee-high tan lines from wearing board shorts. I think it's such a double standard that women should feel compelled to wear skimpy bikinis yet some men feel that it's horrible to bare even a little bit of skin. By all means, wear whatever you think is comfortable according to what you're doing, but nobody should be afraid to wear less clothing because of what other people will think. If you don't like what someone is showing, don't look, it's really as simple as that.

-Agreed. As a woman who loves men, the more I see of them the better. Especially if they're hot. Come on guys, you like to see our bodies, show more of yours.
-I always break out the speedo when vacationing in Mexico, Carribean or on a cruise. I don't care what the women think. It's my wife I care about and she encourages me. I'm an exibitionist anyway. I think it is really the American women that drive American men to go with the long swim suits. I think they (American women) feel ashamed when they have to stare!
-Will Americans ever get over their sex hang-ups? Why do we have to now use the term "junk" for a portion of anatomy which all men have?
-It's not that I am afraid of showing off my junk. It's just there isn't very much to show. In fact, Peggy Lee recorded a hit about my junk in 1969 called, "Is That All There Is?" I have been embarrasses ever since!
-1) Homophobia is still rampant in the U.S. 2) Americans are extremely prude. 3) Most American men are overweight.
-Between board shorts and rash guards, men might as well burkas to the beach.
-Speedos are disgustingly revealing. Save it for the bedroom.
-Could be that the US women have a fixation on "male-bashing".....there's simply no holds barred when you get three or more women together and they start talking about what they consider "men's deficiencies". US women are perhaps the angriest women on the planet. And I say that after having traveled to 16 countries around the world. Get over it, girls.
-I don't think we are afraid of showing off. It's just that most American males have a gut that makes a speedo totally inappropriate.
-As someone who routinely ditches the swimsuit all together, I say wear what you want. Bare skin doesn't have to automatically be sexualized; just keep it clean. It's summer, have fun and don't worry about what people, who you will never meet, think about you.

-Fear of showing their junk? What can you expect from a country full of wacky Puritans teaching little boys their penis is evil. Then you have the other side of the coin, Men who think it is wrong to wear a Speedo on the beach, but take cell phone photos of their nude junk at parties and then plaster them all over the internet.
-Does their exist anything more fragile and delicate than a heterosexual male's ego?
-I don't know if men are too scared to wear speedos, but I know that I am scared of looking at most of those who do. The majority of men that I've seen wearing them are just plain frightening, and I live down the shore so I've seen plenty of them. Stick with more traditional men's trunks or board shorts. No one wants to look at a hairy, middle-aged man with a beer gut and moobs in a speedo, and guys who look like that far outnumber the fit and toned guys wearing them. I wouldn't inflict my body in a bikini on a bunch of innocent bathers, so these guys should have the same consideration.
-Men have become neurotic prudes while large and proud women have no problem squeezing their girth into a tiny two piece.
-WE American women look at you men in Speedos with disgust. And no, it's not some Puritan sensibility. You are under a very false impression that We want to see your junk. (must be a lesbian)
-I'm the most self-conscious personally conservative person I know and even I think the current style in swim trunks in absurd. Why not make 'em 3 inches longer and call 'em trousers.
-It's not fear, it's decency. News flash, we don't want to see your 'junk' outside the bedroom. It's disgusting. Just another form of flashing. Focus on something else, like developing a personality and manners. (Fundamentalist)
-it's not just speedos... there are guys at my gym who wear shorts in the shower... and go fully clothed in the sauna and when they are changing they do the "wrapped towel around waist while putting on underwear" thing like they are outside in a parking lot... and we are talking about a locker room filled with guys with the same junk... i just laugh every time
-If you've got nothing to hide, show it. If you've got nothing to show, hide it.
-yes, American men are afraid of their junk. They - we - are afraid of being sized up, or rather, sized down, with their endowment being OUT THERE. Speedo's are the ultimate in putting your business on display, and American men are size-obsessed enough to not want that sort of attention. It also gives the impression that you are gay if you notice, or even look at, another man's package. It boils down to the fact that American men are self-conscious and afraid.
-I rock speedos all the time. I'm American. I have a girlfriend. She loves em and if there's a funny saying or print on em so does everyone else at the party. There's no sense in wearing so much clothing if you're at a hot beach with a bunch of other scantily clad women around. It helps you appreciate the saga they have to go through anyway to find their swimwear every summer. People are just using the "euro or gays" only nonsense so that they can ostracize something different. Ya'll can rock ur wet capris and I'll continue not to have stupid tan lines.
-Can't speak for other women. Maybe it's just me. But I think speedos are very unflattering to the rest of the male body in total. In spite of the fact that they may be more revealing of genital's, which isn't necessarily a turn on, they just don't look good to me. Neither do boardshorts that come to the knees or flap like skirts. I don't know what you call them, but there's something between wearing a skin-clinging membrane around your privates and looking like a girl in a skirt. If it shows a man's backside to good advantage and shows off broad shoulders, narrow waist, nice hips, without clinging like girly stuff, I'm all for that. He's my guy.

‘Screw What Everybody Else Thinks’: Speedo-Wearing Gym-Goer Told to Change Attire or Face Cops — Cries Sexism, Discrimination
Brad Cieslowski doesn’t mince words when describing his physique.
“I think I look good, yeah,” he told WJBK-TV in Southfield, Mich.
The 29-year-old doesn’t have a problem showing off his body in public, either — which seems to have led to a cringe-worthy kerfuffle with his fitness club.
Cieslowski had just completed a three-hour workout last Saturday at Lifetime Fitness in Novi, Mich., which is about a half hour northwest of Detroit, then decided to relax in the club’s hot tub.
But it wasn’t long before a lifeguard approached Cieslowski and told him he needed to “change into something more appropriate; that is not appropriate,” he recalled.
That, Cieslowski said, referred to his “square-cut speedo” suit, he explained to WJBK, as well as “the bulge. That’s usually people’s problem with the speedo, is the bulge.”
Cieslowski said he’s worn the speedo at the gym previously without incident, but this time some fellow gym-goers apparently complained to staffers, who then told Cieslowski to cease and desist.
“He says, ‘We can all see it.’ And I said, ‘Well then stop staring. No one’s making you look at it,’” Cieslowski told WJBK.
But when the staffer threatened to call police, Cieslowski reluctantly complied, adding that it turned into a scene in which he was “embarrassed” and “publicly humiliated” and “discriminated against.”
His short-form stance? “Screw what everybody else thinks,” he told WJBK.
“I can say the same thing about all the women around this pool in their bikinis and their one-pieces, showing off every nook and cranny of their body leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination but their skin color,” he told WJBK.
“I’m not allowed to be myself and wear what I want to wear and it’s ridiculous, and it’s incredibly sexist.”
Lifetime Fitness released this statement in response to the situation: “We acknowledge there are various types of swim attire…however we have a two-layer house code. In this instance, multiple members registered concerns rooted in discomfort and as a result the decision was reached to ask the member to leave the pool area.”
Cieslowski said he wasn’t aware of the two-layer rule before the incident, adding that he’ll comply. He noted, too, that he spoke to the gym’s general manager, who Cieslowski said apologized for how the situation was handled.
What do you think? Sexist move by the gym…or appropriate action?

He does have a point. It isn’t always the hot chicks in the revealing active wear. At my gym, I routinely see hugely fat women, like 250 pounders, that stuff their utter sized boobs in sport bras and tanks where their nipples look like the knobs on a range top. They also wear lycra tights showing every divot of celluite on their huge misshapen thighs. Then they get off the treadmill and they have a cameltoe in which one could hide a laptop.

It was probably a complaint by a jealous old fart who is totally out of shape. I doubt the gym lifeguard warns women about their obvious cameltoe.

Longer swim shorts have a lining to keep your "junk" from moving around. A Speedo is does the same.
The guy at the gym, wasn't wearing a speedo brief, he was wearing a square cut.

Why is the USA so Speedo-phobic? This is the feeling I get from a lot of people. I think there are a number of factors at work here. First, prominent displays of sexuality are judged differently from males to females. Ladies are encouraged to wear skimpy bikini swimwear, even when they shouldn’t. I have seen some girls wear bikinis, because they have a big chest. Yet, they have cottage cheese thighs too.
When you look at the list of actresses that have done nude scenes, the list is very long. The same can’t be said for actors willing to do nude scenes or full frontal nudity. Why is this? It seems that taking their tops off allows actresses to be taken seriously. Another reason for the Speedo phobia, is the fact that a lot of men let themselves go. If you knew that you had to wear Speedos at the beach or pool, maybe you would try harder to stay in shape. And you don’t have to have washboard abs to pull one off either. You can have some gut, and still look good too. Guys are insecure about the size of their manhood, is another reason I hear for men not wanting to wear Speedos. You don’t have to be well hung to wear them. I have seen many guys who have average or small penises still look very nice in them. Woman don’t want to see a guy’s junk, is one of the most ridiculous reasons I have heard for not wanting a man to wear Speedos. Women I know love guys, and their penises. The women who are “scarred” by seeing an outline of a man’s cock and balls in Speedos are those ladies that are probably afraid of sex, and only do it for their men in the dark. And of course, the old standard: I am not gay, why would I wear one? I guess gay guys are more in touch with their bodies than straight men. You should wear one cause your girl likes how your body looks in one. And you get to show the world that all the time you have spent in the gym has paid off.

Beaches in Italy this summer are filled with men of all sizes and shapes who wear Speedos. Unlike men in the U.S. who wear silly board shorts/culottes, they haven't been filled with body shame. They just go to the beach to soak up some sun and have fun.
