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.

  • 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.

    • Interesting. So it must be more of the 16 and below age group that gives the eww responses. Well I'm glad they don't repulse you anymore lol :p

    • I don't know what was wrong with me at that time haha.

  • 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.

    • Good for you. There are straight guys that wear Speedos and gay men too. A lot of men don't care what women think. We want to look good for other men. You know there are tons of fitness models out there that could pull off a speedo. I'm sure that you would be attracted to at least 1-2 out of 50 men. :-P

  • I don't think speedos are some horrifying thing, however, I usually prefer regular swim trunks on guys.

  • 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

  • Wow I cannot believe the judgmental attitude of s women and men over guys who wear speedos. This seems to be particularly evident in the US where it is apparently unacceptable. Why does it matter? What gives any of us the right to judge anyone for wearing them. This says more about your insecurities than it does about them for wearing them. If they want to wear them then good let them, it is no one else's business but theirs. If you don't like them don't look. With this attitude I am glad I live in Europe where we don't worry about such things.
    Personally I wear shorts when I am out and about. At the pool training I wear jammers. At the beach and hotel pools I wear bikini briefs. They dry quick and you get better tan lines and in my opinion, and that of my wife, they look good. I hate long shorts when going in the water they cling to your skin and stay wet for ages afterwards, being very uncomfortable. Some people don't like the outline of a guys dick, well then don't look. We all know guys have external genitali so just get over it. Stop being so insecure and prudish. Again I don't care what you think when I wear mine, I am secure in my own skin, it's your problem not mine or any guy who wears them.

  • I would like to wear one, but there's too many people who don't like it. I think they are definitely masculine and sexy, but there's too many people against it. I think swimming should be naked.

    • People have been against female swimsuits without a skirt for decades. Later against bikinis. Then against monokinis. (Topless)
      The speedo is the bikini for men.

    • I wear speedos since I got out of diapers.
      In swimming pools in Europe speedos are mandatory..
      Shorts are for those who want to wear them on beaches.

  • I would, but only for my girlfriend, I don't think it'd be right to show so much to anyone else, which now I am considering, because she's mentioned wanting to see me in things that show off more.

    • Yeah I had a girl smile and say hi as she walked past. I was just sitting on my towel at the beach minding my own business and I was wearing them

  • In Europe shorts are prohibited in public pools: strict beach wear.

    Thus most guys wear speedo like trunks.
