Guys would you wear speedos?

Would you wear speedos if they were a lot more socially accepted? Or if more guys wore them like 50/50 and they were more common? Would you like to have the freedom of being able to wear them without being judged harshly? The same type of freedom girls have when they wear a bikini?

Hilarious some answers. People are really scared of them. Mostly the US of course
and for the record...I think the latest L.M.F.A.O music video with them wearing speedos is revolting. If you haven't seen it then I wouldn't recommend it. It's a perfect example of how NOT to wear speedos

  • Personally, I prefer regular bikini swim briefs for guys over speedos. I'm not crazy over that incredibly tight mashing feeling and look. Regardless though, they need to fit properly. I don't like seeing beer bellied men in them. Loose the gut if you want to wear that. It would be nice to see younger men in them, but mostly old men wear them. Oh well, we are all heading to old age sooner or later. But as for me, I am 38, 6'1" and weigh on average between 155 - 165 lbs. I've been swimming in men's bikini briefs since my mid I was about 23 (I've been tanning in them on the farm where I grew up since my late teens). I am not a body builder, but am not suffering from an enlarged stomach either. Also, I have a medium tan with no farmer tan lines (farmer's tans are ugly). I am married and am not looking to draw attention from women to think I look sexy. My wife is the only one who can find or see my tan lines, and she loves it! Most of us (women included) do not have a model magazine looking body.

    Should I wear them? If you don't like it, don't look at me. My wife hates the look of board shorts that look like pants that are too short, and I hate the look and feel of them also. Speedo / men's bikini briefs feel great in water, and dry a lot faster than short (which makes you feel like a drowned rat for hours later).

    But because of society, I choose to wear the shorts until it is time to either tan or swim. After that I dry off and cover up with a towel before putting the shorts back on (which it is awesome to have dry shorts after a swim). If it was normal for guys to wear them, then I would walk the beach in them, but since it is not that accepted by society, I don't. I don't go around the beach staring at every hot or ugly woman in a bikini on the beach, and most don't stare at me either. Most people are self-conscious on the beach, so even though it feels like people are staring, I just head to the water with my wife and enjoy a fun swim with her.

    Besides, they feel amazing in the water, and you can't see them on me when I'm out swimming anyway. So really, who cares? I've never caught anyone staring at me, and I don't push it either. So again, should I wear them? I won't stop just because you think I shouldn't. I would rather please my wife than you.

    Outside of the beach, I am very conservative. I never go anywhere even without a shirt. The beach is a place to enjoy "reasonable" freedom. If you are a guy and you have a problem with my swimsuit, then I can't help you with your insecurities. If you are a woman and have a problem, well honey I'm taken, so I'm not trying to attract you anyway. Marriage has been the best boost of self-confidence I've ever had. I know longer care what the opposite gender thinks.

    Nonetheless guys, if you are going to wear a bikini or speedo, please for the sake of us all, make sure it fits right, and does not overemphasize your personal areas (or look trashy). Most people wouldn't want women to dress like that either.

What Girls Said 20

  • Being a swimmer and a lifeguard, speedos are not a big deal to me. They're just normal swimming attire. They're not baggy, they allow you to move better, and they look fine. Even if the person is chubby, other swimmers don't care at all because it's as normal as wearing clothes.

    If you're swimming laps, go with a speedo or jammers (those skin tight swimming shorts). Trunks are kind of silly to swim laps in, but that's fine if it's all you have.

    I think it's also fine to wear speedos outside of lap swim or practice, and a lot of swimmers do. it just depends on your level of comfort and who you're with. I'm also biased because I used to live in Brazil and it was common beachwear for guys of any age, and considered attractive.

    Of course speedos look better on guys who are in good shape, but you don't need a perfect body to wear one. You should wear one because they're good for swimming. Plus they show confidence.

  • I don't like speedos. I've only seen it a couple times but I will not forget when I was waiting in line for some slide or who the hell knows what and there were two old men in speedos. O.O never again. I don't like bikinis either. Never wore one never will. It's just too much skin on both genders. No, just no.

    • exactly

  • I don't approve of speedos. See the thing is guys have appendages down there and girls are pretty much flat down below. So it looks the same whether a girl is wear jeans or a bikini, that's why it's acceptable for women.

    It's like how guys can go shirtless but girls can't. Is it fair? Not really. But I am glad it's this way because I don't want girls exposing their boobs and I don't want guys' junk to be all out.

    • I do not believe that you just compared the man/woman shirtless factor, and men in Speedos.

      Basically, there is no argument as both parties are keeping covered.

      You cannot contrast a shirtless woman with a clothed man. Because the Speedos may make certain things more visible, you say that? What about women wearing shirts (last time I checked, their "appendages" are considerably protruding.)

      That is not a valid debate. If you simply are not fond of then, that is one thing.

    • Show All
    • The chance of a woman having an appendage down there is about the same as a man not having an appendage down there. Don't forget that some men have moobs and still get to be shirtless.

    • I don't disapprove speedos..I just think they look funny. haha

  • And what might the problem be with shorts..?

    For the record, if you want women to be even slightly attracted to you: stay away from Speedos.

    Regardless, if you feel the urge to sport such swimwear, go right ahead. Beyond the fact that they do not appeal to me personally, I suppose that there is nothing arguable.

    • nothing wrong with shorts either

    • Show All
    • "And what might the problem be with shorts..? "

      Wet shorts take an eternity to dry on the body and get sand everywhere, thus imposing a change.

    • Don't forget the amount of drag they create while swimming, its like dragging a parachute behind you. Not safe for swimming in my opinion.

  • I wear them regardless, they're de rigueur in France, because considrered more hygienic than long shorts full of dirty kleenex in the pockets, etc. Some places in France REQUIRE them. The fat guys get very upset by this.

    They claim they're being discriminated against, since they have to highlight their bellies

  • To the ladies: If guys look so horrible in them, then perhaps you don't like the way guys look. If that's the case, then why do you even date or get married to a guy? Personally, I don't really care what women think. My wife likes me in them, and she's the only one I care to please. As for anyone else, I'm not available or looking for anyone anyway. I'm so glad to be married so I don't have to think about whether or not I'm attracting the opposite sex (except for my wife of course).

    One thing I will say, is that most of the guys I've seen in them are either fat or old. I assure you, if I start getting fat, I'll just wear shorts, or go to a beach where there is not a lot of people until I am able to get the weight off.

  • I'm a straight man 48 y/o. I'm 5'-11" tall, 157 lbs with a 35" waist. I'm not musclebound nor a competetive swimmer but I'm decent-looking and not a hairy guy with a hanging gut...ok? I like to wear speedos at the beach or pool because frankly I hate board shorts. I guess that if I wanted to just hang-out adopting the ghetto gang-banger look then I'd go for the board shorts. But really I feel un-sexy and frumpy in shorts and they're difficult for swimming or tanning compared to bikinis. Is it OK to wear speedos?
