Here is another experience from one of the SpeedoForum.org members. It is surprising just how many str8/married guys are on the forum which is fantastic.
This entry was written by a couple who have been on the forum for a couple of years now and I love reading their posts and seeing their amateur photos.
My wife got used to my speedo wearing long before we were married. Early on in our relationship we were both working on a boat down in Miami and had some time off coming. We decided to book a cruise and there was a speedo authentic fitness store (remember those?) just a short walk from the marina so I went down there one day and got a black speedo solar as a surprise. I have been a swimmer since I was very young, so wearing speedos was not new to me, but I didn’t have any with me on the boat and my girlfriend was not aware that I liked them. I thought it might make a nice surprise. This is a true story.
When we unpacked our bags on the cruise ship, she noticed the suit in my things and was surprised. She said “Is that a speedo?!” To which I replied, “Yeah, you don’t like it?” She said she wasn’t sure, so I was a bit bummed. I had had girlfriends respond more positively in the past (a story for another post).
We went to the pool the next morning but I didn’t wear the speedo, just my shorts. When we settled into some chairs and sat down, she looked at me and asked, “You didn’t wear your new bathing suit?” I said that I didn’t wear it because she indicated she might not like it. “I’m not going to know if I don’t see you in it. Go put it on,” she said.
This was a surprise, so I went back to the room and put it on, and pulled my shorts up over. I was more than a little excited at this point. When I got back to the pool, she looked up and told me to pull the shorts down so she could see.
Whenever I go on vacation or to the beach for the first time in a season, there’s always a lot of self-consciousness to get over when stripping down that first time. The pool deck was crowded, I was still excited. When the girlfriend is telling you to pull your shorts off, though, you pull your shorts off. After I took them off I went to sit down and she said, “What are you doing? Turn around a so I can see.” The lady next to us winked at me. Finally, my girlfriend said, “Ok, I like these. You can sit down.”
The whole thing was exhilarating. I didn’t wear another suit for the rest of our time working down in Miami and the collection has only gotten larger.
When I proposed to her, we were in Curacao, in the hotel pool in the evening and I was wearing an aussiebum 1.5 loose and she was wearing a wicked weasel sheer bikini. I’m glad she said yes.
Proposing in a speedo when the bride to be in in a Wicked Weasel sounds awesome!!!!
