I’ve spent a little bit of time in San Francisco and I love the place – there is a lot of weirdos but if you can’t be comfortable in your own skin in San Fran I don’t think there is anywhere else in the world you can be.
I have some old friends who live in Lower Haight which 2 blocks from the Castro (which is the gayest neighbourhood in the gayest city on the planet). It is a fun place because unlike the waterfront there aren’t many tourists. As for the nightlife, if you can find gay sex in the Castro…. then you aren’t in the Castro.
Here is a post that was on the forum (www.SpeedoForum.org) recently which I thought was interesting. I’ve never been in San Fran when it was warm enough to get down to this beach but it definitely sounds like fun. The guy who submitted this is OznSpeedoBoy – a 20-something year old asian boy who loves speedos.
Recently drove down from North Bay to Marshall’s Beach in San Francisco for the first time during a heat wave (100+ degrees fahrenheit!)… and ran into a plethora of men in speedos and exhibitionist swimwear… with loads of these men partaking in public action!
Marshall’s Beach is located at the base of the Golden Gate bridge and is known as the beach where all the gay men (and nudists) flock to during the rare hot days. To get to where most of the speedo-wearers are, one has to walk past a small batch of rocks. Once there… speedo heaven!
The beach was packed, with loads of men in speedos sunbathing and generally partying at the beach. After walking past what seems to be a 100 (or 200!) speedo-clad men, I start to reach the nudist section of the beach. As it was my first time here, curiosity got the best of me and told me to walk to the very end of the beach past these giant rocks–where I found myself in the middle of hordes of men doing the dirty! As hot as that was (literally and figuratively), I definitely felt out of place as I was still dressed in my track singlet and basketball shorts, so I left the area and began to search for a place to claim in the sands of the nudist area.
After 10 or so minutes, finally got a spot to myself–laid down my beach blanket and stripped my clothes to reveal my 1-inch sided red swim brief. Perfect for getting my speedo tan on! Got my tanning oil out and slathered my body with it and got to tanning! The plus side: got to enjoy the view of loads of men just enjoying the weather (or each other) while in speedos and their birthday suits! Even got approached by a few handsome speedo-clad fellows complimenting my suit, and later, inviting me to hang out alongside them and their speedos!
Definitely one of the hottest moments of the summer! Would love to hear if anyone else has similar stories at the beach (speedo friendly, nudist, etc) to share?
