Modesty and Speedos

1 comment Posted by

Brenton is an old online mate of mine who started his blog around the same time I started  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.

Speedo Fans from 166 Countries

6 comments Posted by

Today I was looking up some stats for an Aussie Adult Store which is interested in advertising on this blog.  I wanted to know how many of my visitors were Australian and it turns out only 12% are Australian which was a little lower than I thought.

One thing I learnt is that during this current month, this blog has had visitors from 166 different countries.

The most common countries was the usual suspects, USA, Canada, UK but surprisingly, China was in the top 10.

It is great to see visitors from all sorts of places, 6 visitors from Saudi Arabia (don’t get caught guys), 22 visitors from Iraq, 10 visitors from Syria (stay safe guys), all the Pacific Islands were covered as well as South East Asia.  I think it is awesome that there are visitors not only from all over the world but also from all different religious backgrounds (I can’t tell the religion of a visitor but you know what I mean) – 326 visitors from India (Hindu), 20 from Egypt (Sunni Muslim majority) and 11 from Iran (Shia Muslim majority) and 1 person from Nepal (Buddhist).

Kind of a boring blog post but I thought it was interesting.

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.

Speedo Culture

8 comments Posted by

Often I am asked how the ‘speedo culture’ is in Australia.

It is OK, at the pool everyone can wear speedos and nobody would look twice.  If you were a lifeguard or part of the surf life saving club, nobody would look twice.  I’m pretty sure ALL of my friends (who give the impression of being 100% str8) will own a pair of speedos to wear under their boardshorts.  If I go for a swim in the surf in the morning nobody would care.

So with that in mind – I suppose the ‘speedo culture’ is acceptable.

BUT – there is always a but.

But, there is no way I’d just wear them if my mates were having a Sunday afternoon on the beach having a few drinks and playing beach cricket.  I had a BBQ yesterday arvo at a mates place and he has a pool in his building complex – none of the guys would ever strip down to a speedo and have a dip in the pool.  Saying that…. the same guys after a few drinks would strip naked and go for a swim.

Perhaps the Aussie ‘speedo culture’ is ironic.  I’m sure if I hung out with a bunch of gay guys it would be different.

I would LOVE to be at the beach on a Saturday arvo and a game of beach volleyball starts up and all my mates are in speedos…..

Italian Guys

Growing up I travelled to Fiji, Thailand, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Hawaii and the west coast of the US.  Since then I’ve had a chance to travel a little more through the US and Canada and I’ve been to the UK once.

I’ve never been to mainland Europe though – kinda crazy since I hear those folks are speedo friendly.

Maybe this coming northern hemisphere summer I should look at heading up there and check it out.

Particularly if there are Italian guys as hot as these guys!!!!
