Brenton is an old online mate of mine who started his blog Aussielicious.com.au around the same time I started AussieSpeedoGuy.com. We’ve worked on different things over the years and these days Kip even keeps his blog online. Unlike me and my passion for speedos, Brenton takes it a little bit further and loves being nude.
It is fun following his adventures on his blog and yesterday he posted the comments below regarding speedos and modesty.
Given how paranoid most guys are in gym locker rooms about anyone seeing their junk you’d be forgiven for thinking that they go to the beach in neck-to-knee swimwear from an era long gone. You’d be wrong. Apparently all it takes for guys to feel comfortable is a tiny little piece of fabric covering their genitals. Australian’s all around the country are fans of speedo style swimwear. Sure there are guys that wear boardshorts but, especially in Sydney all the guys that live in the gym and get changed under a towel are the same guys wearing the skimpiest, tightest swimwear around. More often than not that same swimwear is designed to emphasise the exact area that they never show.
All of the popular brands seem to have a “pouch” style of swimwear designed to highlight and thrust forward your junk. I get that it makes it appear a bit more impressive than it really may be but it’s not going to turn a 4 incher into a 12 incher is it? Speedo style swimwear and even boardshorts when they are wet really don’t leave a lot to the imagination so it’s amazing that it only takes that little piece of fabric to not only preserve our modesty, barely, but also to give us the confidence to walk down the beach feeling great.
Interesting thoughts, during my time in America I found that it was the opposite in the locker rooms at the pool, guys were happy to strut around butt naked but nobody else would wear a speedo. But in Aussie it is the opposite and I agree with Brenton’s sentiments.

As I promised earlier in the week, here are the square cut swimwear that I won from my speedo drawer.
- Red AussieBum, I like the lycra on these but they kinda feel like a bit of a wedgie in the bum. No drawstring, but the super wide waistband means they won’t come down in the surf.
- Black Nike shorts, not lycra but a nice light material. Unfortunately, these bunch up in the crotch for me so I don’t wear them much at all. I’d love to wear them as underwear but that bunching….
- Blue Intymen square cuts from my good mates at Mensuas.com – I actually asked the guys for a square cut and this is what they recommended. I actually like these the most, the lycra is thick and good quality, unfortunately, the sizing is super small and I can’t really wear these, at least not in public, I’m showing off a huge plumbers crack. I’m going to try and get them 2 sizes bigger and I think they will be perfect.
- Blue AussieBum’s are my most recent addition, I think they are called Old School. They are a really nice fit, I went a larger size because AussieBum just seems to get smaller and smaller (maybe I’m getting fatter and fatter). These are lycra, feel great, don’t bunch up too much.
Of course, I much prefer speedos and don’t think I’d really wear any of these at the pool. But, my theory is that maybe I can wear these to the beach with my mates and it will be more acceptable than speedos? I dunno?
If you are interested in any of these speedos – leave a comment, I might be interested in putting them up on eBay if anyone is interested.
Do you guys ever get motivated to work out, or eat better because of pics of guys in speedos?
I do. 100%. Today was an example of that, I was working, it is kinda grey out and I did not feel like going for a swim, until….. I saw this guy in these red speedos. That was all it took to get me into my red arena speedos, get in the car and drive to the pool. Doesn’t matter if it is raining, I’m going to get wet anyway right?
Last night I was talking to a fan (via email) and he was saying that he grew up being a chubby kid and it is his passion for speedos which has resulted in him exercising and looking great. I love it!!!
Sunday morning here in Australia and I’m back into the routine… the routine of getting up early (even with a hangover) and going for an early Sunday morning surf with the boys.
What a glorious morning it is as well!!!
Today I wore white speedos under my wetsuit and I only wish that the white speedos was all that I was wearing while surfing. I’m sure most of you guys know the liberating feeling of wearing ONLY speedos. I get that exhilarating feeling in hottubs and stuff BUT the other day when I went for a run and stripped down to my red speedos on the beach… that is something amazing.
Maybe I’m crazy but let me know (leave a comment) if you agree with me.
OK, I have a full days work ahead of me. The Swannies (Sydney Swans AFL team) are playing later today so I’m getting we’ll be BBQ’ing. I love being on holidays but it is nice to be back.
OK boys, I’m back in Aussie.
It is before 6am and I’m a little bit jet lagged but not too bad. The weather forecast isn’t really for much beach weather in the next few days but once I’m done posting here I’m going to go for a run, grab a meat pie for breakfast (that probably counters the benefits of the run).
Then, I’m going to go for a swim in the ocean in my red speedos…. anyone else around for an early morning swim?
