    Default Men who wear speedos

    Do you take issue, or do you like them?

    I personally don't fancy seeing the man-junk sitting there in clear view. I try not to look.

    It's the worst when a speedo catches you by surprise. You're just minding your business, nek minnit you've seen the eye of some chap's wang staring at you through the Lycra.

    Does anyone's other half wear them in public?

    I don't love them, but I don't really care if men want to wear them.

    Don't ever go to a surf carnival then...the surf boat rowers not only wear speedos, but pull them up their bum cracks to reduce friction on the seat

    Thankfully this is no longer a hobby of my DH!!

    As long as someone's at a pool or within 100m of the beach, I think it's acceptable and not really that different from a woman wearing a lycra swimsuit. They're really the most practical option for lap swimming.

    That being said, I concede that they look far better on some people than others!

    Meh, if someone feels comfortable wearing them, good on them.

    I think some people can wear speedos well. Some, not all.

    Last summer we were at the beach and my 5 y/o saw a man wearing speedos and she come running up to me laughing saying "Mummy, that man is wearing his jocks at the beach. He must have left his bathers at home". When I explained to her what speedos were she actually p!ssed herself laughing. She thought they were the funniest thing ever.

    Unless you're lap swimming or a hot, tanned lifeguard....no.
