Top Ten Places to Wear Speedos

Here’s my list of the Top Ten places to wear your Speedos:Red Speedo Jump

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Triathlon
    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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Rave
    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!

Speedos, Masculinity and Music

Real men still wear Speedos. Little did I know that this would become my most famous and successful posting to date. This latest entry will examine men in the music/entertainment business. We’ll talk about famous guys in Speedos as well as some views on masculinity too.

After cruising around the web the other day, I stumbled upon a new music video by the group LMFAO called “Sexy and You Know It.” The description said that members of the group were shakin’ it in Speedos at Venice Beach. I watched it, and thought it was a very fun video. It is about time that we get to see men shake it in music videos. LMFAO is a relatively new group made up of 2 guys — Redfoo and SkyBlu, both related to industry maven Berry Gordy (son and grandson). They had a big hit this past summer with “Party Rock Anthem.” Redfoo is the lead singer on the latest video, while SkyBlu is seen sporting a cardboard box TV head. I give the guys props for donning Speedos. They seem secure in their sexuality (I assume they are straight) and are having some fun. They don’t seem to care what other people think. Dancing at the club in Speedos would be awesome I am sure. And there are liberal shots of them shaking their “junk.” Be sure to watch the video here.
