It takes a real man to wear a pair of Speedos. For those that are thinking about taking the leap — and getting a Speedo — here are some reasons to give it a try.
- Better sun coverage
Because there is less fabric, you will be able to get a better tan. If I could count the times I have seen guys trying to roll up their board shorts to get a better tan, I would be a rich man.
- Less clothing to get in the way
If you are a swimmer, you have less water resistance with Speedos than with board shorts. You will move easier through the water.
- You will assert your individuality
Who wants to be one of the masses, when you can stand out? These suits are not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you have the right attitude, even heavier guys can rock the Speedo and make themselves memorable.
- You will be seen as a risk taker.
Who wants to be safe and boring? There are plenty of colors and cuts of racing style swimsuits, one to please most everyone. And if you are the only one wearing one at the water park… so be it.
- You will like the feeling of wearing so little.
I get it — it feels good to be naked. But unfortunately, we can’t be naked in most of the world. But next to being naked, I would take a Speedo.
It’s time that men stand up and demand their right to be sexy and show off. Woman can’t have all the fun. So put a Speedo on, and I will see you at the gym, beach, pool party or water park!
