You must be:

a) European, or
b) a real swimmer, diver or water polo player.

That is all.

is it acceptable even then? I mean, even from the wearers perspective, how would it NOT be painful?
You’re basically flashing your penis with some color at everyone who sees you.

I’m a slender(skinny) fit muscular male. And the only situation that one would look good under is darkness.

…. its not painful for ‘em unless its a racing speedo.
Which is different from a practice suit.

I was on an olympic level swim team for a long long time until I destroyed my shoulders.
And unless the guy is hard/semi-hard you can’t really tell anything from it unless they’re wearing an absurdly thin suit.

To me, guys in speedos is the equivalent of girls wearing bikinis. I see no difference in their riduculousness.

never ever ever ever ever. Unless you are swimming competitively. And then only if everyone in the stands and watching on tv are wearing blindfolds.

@patty: how about ‘betrayal of trust’?

jrpowell's avatar

Well done eyeofnyc. I’m not sure if we are thinking the same thing but that was funny.

Not sure if my perspective is any different, but I have to say I love a nice fit man in a speedo or square cut. I mean, I would not be caught dead in one. I know for a fact that this body (mine) can not pull it off even if I paid someone. But a ripped body, endowed well enough to fill out the speedo, for sure, there are people who can pull it off.

As I said earlier, a Speedo is like a driver’s license. It is a priveledge not a right and if abused should be confiscated.

FlyingPanda's avatar

No!!!! Unless you are an honest to god Olympian who has to do so to cut time.

delirium's avatar

If not abused, it should be confiscated, along with the wearer.. <.<

Anyone who has the self-confidence to wear a Speedo in public ought to do so and be proud.

Check out the scene in Borat where Sasha B- Cohen is wearing his sling.
