American Speedo Culture

I really don’t get it guys.  Today I went for a swim around lunch time and as usual I was the only guy wearing a speedo.  There was a lot of lap swimmers, enough that I had to share a lane which I haven’t had to do for a while.

However, in the change room guys are walking around naked.

I don’t understand it, no speedos but walking around the change room naked.  In Australia it seems the opposite where it would be odd not to wear speedos while swimming laps but it would be weird to see that much nudity in a change room.

If anyone is at the pool tomorrow morning, I’ll be the only guy wearing a speedo.  I’ll wear an AussieBum speedo so feel free to say g’day.

Also, I’m still playing with some design ideas but thought I’d go back to this old layout.  What do you guys think?  I can’t post as many pics per post but it is easier scrolling.

One thought on “American Speedo Culture

  1. I think the reason why speedos aren’t popular may have to do with the fact that sport stores dont really carry speedo style suits. If they do they are hidden away in an obscure place in the store. Also the cost of a speedo is a little high compared to a jammer or swim trunks. If the price of speedos was less I imagine more ppl would buy them. Also most ppl prob dont think about going online to purchase a speedo where you can definitely find more choices. If stores promoted and carried a better variety more ppl would prob turn to speedos. I swim in speedos at my gym pool so I know how it feels to be the only one but it doesnt stop me, I want to work on my fear of wearing one outside of a gym setting.

Let me know what you are thinking mate.....
