If you know fashiom history, you'd know men have never worn tight fitting swim clothes, ever see old black and white shows or movies, more like a striped loose fitting unitard.

I vote for full Speedo disclosure for all men! Come on, let us women check out your goods, compare you to all the other men around you and start threads about the size and shape of your Speedo bulge!

I mean, its only fair, right? That is what women put up with from men on a daily basis

PS: A close-up Speedo pictorial thread on the topic for comparison would be nice - all we get to see around here are pics of airbrushed and mostly naked women being picked apart and judged. Bring on the Speedo contest!
It would be fair, what wouldn't is judging a bunch of flacid peni. I mean **** are just there, they don't really swell with excitement.

Men in America did wear Speedos (as did I) in the late 60s and 70s when I probably was at the beach the most. So, the change you've stated is really interesting. I wonder if our environment is causing body changes. It did when cows were fed hormones to produce more milk (girls got breasts earlier).

Speaking of horrific images, a few months ago, I was reading something on some website, I clicked a link to read more about whatever it was, and I saw a pic of Steven Tyler in a speedo (in all his ancient, skeletal glory). I had not been forewarned that I was about to view such a monstrosity or I would not have clicked the link

I don't believe it has to do with male vanity in general because many, maybe even most, American guys don't care if they're fat/ugly and everyone sees it. If they did, they wouldn't be wearing even swim trunks in the first place.
The size of a flaccid "member" is not indicative of size.
