Modesty and Speedos

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.

You’re 100% right about this double standard, and it makes absolute-zero sense.

I found the same in Ireland and England, i.e. one could get individual changing rooms to preserve one’s modesty and not be naked in front of someone else, but then speedos were more acceptable at the pool, etc.

I’ve never understood this, personally…and now with most swim teams switching to jammers, it’s even worse here in the U.S. Divers and water polo players still keep the tradition alive, but not every high school has a water polo team…
