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!

Here’s my list of the Top Ten places to wear your Speedos:
- Public Pool
Not so unexpected here, as most professional swimmers still wear them or something tight at the very least (like jammers). Don’t know how you could squeeze yourself into a smaller size.
- The Gym
Again, not so unexpected here, especially considering there is usually a pool, jacuzzi and steam room. There is one guy I see who works out in something very similar to Speedos… very short shorts on the weight floor. I don’t mind as he is in good shape.
- The Beach
Home of one of my favorite teenage fantasies, they just make sense to me if you want to tan or play in the water. A Speedo tan line looks very cool on fit guys.
- Pool Party
Yes, you are putting yourself out there some with this… as you may be the only one there in one, unless you are at a gay party. But if you are comfortable in your own skin and you feel good, go for it.
- Gay Pride
I did this one last year… a pair of Speedos and some shoes. It made sense when I was in a crowded bar after the parade, and that’s all I had on. It was very hot inside. And fun for dancing… you felt like a go-go boy.
- Water Park
I did this last year too, but I have done it plenty in the past. Yeah, so what if people look… It feels right for me. And I have the balls to do it. Maybe I am giving some closeted gay guy a fantasy to think about.
Makes sense to me. Swimming, running and bike riding in something tight and form fitting. Just have a tank top or cut-off shirt to pin your number on.
- Santa Speedo Run
Popular in several places around the country including Boston! You need a pair of red Speedos, and a Santa hat and you are ready to run. Still need to do one of these.
- Foam Party
Used to be popular at gay bars… the dance floor gets cover in soap bubbles and you dance around in your underwear or less. Why not wear something tight and shiny like a Speedo… they look great when wet.
I haven’t experienced this one yet… but I could totally see it. Add some funky boots, funny hat and sunglasses and a feather boa, and it would be a happening rave outfit.
That’s it! Now let’s see you out there having some fun in Speedos. Don’t forget to take pics!
