American Anti-Speedo’ism

I really don’t get it guys.  Today I went for a swim around lunch time and as usual I was the only guy wearing a speedo.  There was a lot of lap swimmers, enough that I had to share a lane which I haven’t had to do for a while.

However, in the change room guys are walking around naked.

I don’t understand it, no speedos but walking around the change room naked.  In Australia it seems the opposite where it would be odd not to wear speedos while swimming laps but it would be weird to see that much nudity in a change room.

If anyone is at the pool tomorrow morning, I’ll be the only guy wearing a speedo.  I’ll wear an AussieBum speedo so feel free to say g’day.

Also, I’m still playing with some design ideas but thought I’d go back to this old layout.  What do you guys think?  I can’t post as many pics per post but it is easier scrolling.

Let me know what you are thinking.....


Stop worrying – you site is good whatever you do. Just be yourself becuase that is what attracts me the most – It’s like having a mate that chats and shares private stories. There is no need for anxiety over what the site looks like – it’s your venue for expression.
Love the site.


I’ve just been looking at your site for a couple of weeks and its a great site and great to see an Aussie doing it. I like this format but what ever is easiest for you. The pictures you post are really good but I really like hearing your thoughts, stories and what you are doing. keep up the good work and G’day from Oz!


Totally agree with you Dave.
Here in Sydney only old guys strolling naked in change room… Hope young hot guys do the same!


Kind of odd in the UK to see many blokes in speedos in the pool, most wear baggy boardshorts instead. A few do though (me included) so maybe there is some hope yet for us Brits?


I have noticed that too. in both Breck and Silverthorn. I too am the only one who weres a speedo in the pool when I swim after work. Every now and then there is a guy in jammers, but that is still rare too. If you ever see a guy wearing black TYR speedos that say “SIU” on them please feel free to say hello.


I swim laps most days and would say almost everyone is in speedso however there are a few more wearing the trunk style with square legs. I am a surf life saver on weekends and would say it the opposite on the beach – somewhere over 90% are in boardies. The pool/gym showers are virtually free of naked bodies.
In a comparison over half girls/women on the beach are in bikinis or have a bikini top with boardies – regardless of age and shape. Seems ok for them.


Haha, I would be happy if I was the first guy you saw in a speedo at the pool. It sounds like you are more of a morning swimmer, and I usually go after work, but we may cross paths.

Take care
