I have the fortune of having traveled outside of the US, and everywhere I went, men's swimsuits are speedos. Then I came back and saw all men wear swim trunks.

Why?

Americans have larger "junk" than the rest of the world. Showing that off in a Speedo would just be rude!

Depends on the guy, I suppose. Swim teams, divers with wet suits, they wear speedos.

Male strippers wear speedos, it's just something men here don't do. Does it really make a difference?

How is that any different than females showing off breasts?

I don't know. Do you think speedos and swim trunks look different?

Not that this is directed to you, but why is it that women are allowed to critique men's fashion, men's style and men's grooming, but if men do that to women, it is considered somehow offensive. Example - I was at a party and some woman said to a man "that mustache makes you look ridiculous". If he would have said something to her like "those pants make you look fat" I don't think she would have considered it an acceptable comment.
