Would you post a pic of you in a bikini or 2 piece (women) or men in speedo on a public site like on social media? to strangers?

Will that require a lot of guts?

I would not, as I do not wear a bikini or a two-piece. Most women my age do not.

I know zero men that wear Speedos, so that would not happen either.

I don't think it requires a lot of guts.
If you wear it, a photo of you wearing it should not be a big deal.

What about you?

I don't see the point in doing it but I would not need a ton of guts to do so.

In California you have to be in bikini shape all year round.

I have on FB in my vacation albums. No big deal. I'm not ashamed of my body or so proud I feel the need to show it off.

A swimsuit is no big deal to me. You wear it at a beach or pool in public around strangers, so I wouldn't think an online pic would be too damning or reputation destroying.

So I wouldn't see the issue. Now it's not something I would do, as there's no point. Plus whenever I wear a swimsuit, it's always one where I am covered up. I don't feel comfortable with my body in a 2-piece, or one-piece. Usually a cute top, that only my shoulders showing, and swim trunks below.

I don't think its that weird, most women under 30 occasionally post pics of themselves in swimsuits to show off the body a bit (assuming she's fit and not a jumbo). Men don't as much because it's considered gay or uncool to post selfies in a lot of circles, especially in a Speedo. I used to post shirtless selfies when I was in better shape but I dont now since im a bit old for that.

Not now, unless I wanted to turn the viewer to stone.

However, I might well have posted a vacation shot of me on a beach when I was forty; and, yes, a Speedo would have been what I was wearing.

I'm forty and I am in a bathing suit in photos with my family. I have posted them, because that's part of my life. I'm not doing a "look at how sexy I look" shot. It's a day at the beach or whatever.

I don't gt why women are so hard on themselves in a bathing suit. Try on a bunch and pick the most flattering one. They make all kinds now.

I wear suits to swim in (hence swimsuit or bathing suit). Looks are irrelevant.
