There are no right men for them. They're horrible on anyone - even the fittest men.

why do all the wrong men wear Speedos on the beach?

For the same reason all the wrong women wear bikinis.

It's because, when they check themselves out in the full length mirror before leaving home, they see something totally different to what the rest of us see. Either that, or they don't check at all and just assume they look good.

And thanks SDevon for sparing us the images - this is one thread that would be the exception to the pea rule.

I was going to say for all the same reasons that the wrong women go topless on topless beaches.

About 12 years ago I was in Barcelona and we went to the beach. We didn't know it was going to be clothing optional. There were both men and women who were in partial states of nudity - NONE of which should have been.

This!!!



They were just discussing this on the radio recently. A caller said something that everyone agreed with.....if you are not competitively swimming, then you do not need to wear a Speedo.

and the wrong women wear bikinis! We see both at the beach. But really, my opinion doesn't matter, they should wear what they want.

This Speedo thing has been going on for far too long... I remember WAYYYYYY back in about 1985 we would go to the swimming area of our lake just about every weekend. I was a young teenager.

There was this OLD man (He was maybe in his 40s or 50s). Hey, that WAS old when I was 14! LOL

He was a fit man, but incredibly hairy and it stuck out from everywhere. Really. Everywhere. ICK!


ETA: Have fun on your vacation!!!

Because they can!

Europeans do it.
Old timers do it.
Southern Comfort man rocks it (love that commercial)

Many like to be all tucked in rather than their berries hanging out and being on the beach a lot let me tell you that is much more appreciated

Now I have no problem with anyone being nude at any time. I burn easily, but hey, if you want to let it all hang out, I admire those who don't let societal standards get in the way of a good time.

Eh, I'm not going to begrudge anyone a good time. If they are comfortable, all the power to them, men or women. (And to be fair, there are a couple of guys in my condo that I swim with that look damn fine in a Speedo.)

I am envious of the women who will rock a bikini no matter their size. I am far too insecure! When I lived in Europe, I was always uncomfortable on the beach because everyone stared at me. I thought I was hideously fat (now I would kill for my 20 year old body). I finally mentioned it to someone and they told me I just stuck out because I was just the only one on the whole beach wearing a one-piece!

I had never seen that Southern Comfort comercial before- that's funny, I love it. Also, I don't drink enough Southern Comfort. I should change that

Ya know, to each his own. Most of the time it doesn't bug me, until I saw this....
We were in Mexico last month, and there was a guy laying face down on a chaise. He actually hiked up his Speedo into his buttcrack I guess so he wouldn't have those tanlines? Just yuk!

Disagree.



Just sayin!


But I do agree that most men who show up at the beach in them should not be wearing them.

I read the title and thought, "no man should wear a speedo." THEN, I saw Brina's photo and I'm rethinking my stance.
