Un-seeing that or un-hearing that...I'm torn as to which I long for more.
NSFE = not safe for ears
When I was in college I worked one summer in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, which is a low rent resort for French Canadians--Montreal's version of Coney Island in a way. EVERY male, young, old, fat, thin, etc wore Speedos. Even I did, although admittedly it was the early 80s and the sight of me in a Speedo back then would be less frightening than me wearing one today. I also have some Quebecois ancestors--it must be some bizarre genetic trait.
I remember one rather rotund man in his sixties wearing not just the standard issue lime green Speedo, but it had holes cut out in the back, one on each cheek. My jaw dropped to the ground, so much in fact I thought I would need surgery to have it restored, as I pondered Why? Why on earth? What happens if he gets sunburned? How would he sit down? Would his ass look like two flags of Japan side by side? Does he use sunscreen? Which would look weirder from a distance, himself applying the Coppertone down there or his wife doing it for him? Finally I caught myself--not only was I wondering if anyone noticed me staring at some old Frenchman's half naked derriere, I think I also must have remembered the myth of the Medusa and worried that I might be turned to stone.
Here's a question for the Slog community: how many of you guys would wear a Speedo if you traveled to a country where they are routinely worn, and what would you ladies think of your husband/boyfriend wearing one?
@4 I don't like speedos. But, some men carry them off better then others so I guess I have to say it depends. It's your *ahem* junk, it is just so right there in a speedo. You can't not look.
Well, at least on in shape guys. Beer gut guys pretty much obliterate the view.
dan, i'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you were high when you posted this.
Male Speedos are only for Olympic swimmers. The womens' Speedo one-piece bathing suit are quite tasteful and can make many women look good.
Interestingly, the one-piece lycra suits worn by cross-country skiers can make anyone look good. Not enough of those at the beach, I think.
The Speedo is fine. I can't deal with his hair.
Painful to listen to and watch. I was hoping for something good to start off my day.
Dan is such a tease.
@4 -- No, let's not ask. What a boring topic that would be--- right up there with "white shoes before Memorial Day?" or "Can you even believe she would wear last year's colors?"
It's a swimming suit and nothing more.
Now this video clip on the other hand is dreadful............
@8... I've got bad news for you, sax... Male swimmers are now wearing a ridiculous full-torso one-piece suit that looks no different than the traditional women's Speedo. High tech fabric. Sets all kinds of crazy world records. Whatever. The Olympics will never be the same.
I don't mind the Speedo; it's the tunelessness I find objectionable.
I'm pretty sure Dan just thought this was utterly hilarious.
for the record, Quebecers dont wear speedo's anymore aside from a few older guys. I shit you not, I saw a banana hammock on a fat 50+s guy at the water park and no, it wasn't a joke on his part.....
Next up "Guys who wear thong bathing suits"
A top ten number and I don't give a fuck what you think.
I'm pro Speedo and I vote.
My solution is to go to a clothing optional beach.
What you see, is what you get.
is that guy the love child of Richard Lewis and a Bay City Roller?
