If you are fit or thin, have you worn a speedo in public? What happened? As long as you do not draw too much attention on yourself, did people seem to notice or even make comments? What part of the country is this? I do NOT want this to be a debate about the speedo. I have heard the pros and cons before. I want to know what has happened to men who wear them.
I think it depends on where you are. Some places it is fine but others, probably not. At the pool where I go, speedos are the norm. If you wear board shorts, you're looked at as as a freak. Overall, I think it's a generational issue--most young guys prefer the board shorts and the older guys prefer traditional speedos.

I have worn speedo's in the past, mostly when sunbathing and trying to get the all over suntan, in California and in Texas. I never experienced any problems or heard any negative comments when I did so. I do wear shorts type swimsuits when I'm sailing or in more active sports.

I wear Speedos, and donít seem to get a second look.
I am not going to look as if I am ashamed of my body.
Plus, I canít swim properly in shorts.

I don't see what the problem with speedo's is, big deal. As long as your not seriously over weight and totally out of shape, what is the big problem.......Oh wait, I forgot, this is America....silly me !!!

Because not many folks really want to see the exact shape and imprint of another person's genitals. That and Speedos are seen as a gay man fashion anyway.

Thank hunk in the speedo in the pic is HOT! Unfortunately, in the real world, most guys who wear speedos aren't hot.
