Men can wear speedos and woman can wear bikinis.

Ofcourse they do. We saw an OLD man wearing one. He looked really funny to us but, hey, it's his vacation and as long as he is covered, who cares? He came in handy during the Survivor Games when they were asked to find a man in a speedo as one of their things to do during their challenge.

A cruise without a "Did you see that Speedo! " is missing something. On a few occasions my thought has been, " Oh my, I can't believe what I just saw" and then, on the other hand, I have witnessed ...."Oh yea, I can't believe what I just saw.....hmmmm. Either way, gentlemen, wear those Speedo's, Enjoy!!!! Sue Sue

Well, Speedo *does* make some "normal" bathing suits for men:

This is about the only Speedo suit I'd be caught in!

Yeah, Speedo is out there. I just discard the ones who shouldn't be wearing them and look at the ones who can ( and they are there). And I still think to myself that Id' prefer something not so tight on them, but...oh, well.

Sue, it would HAVE to be alcoholic drinks to get me in a little Speedo!

:-)

It's not because I'm out of shape or old (I'm 31 and fairly fit), but just because I'd feel so darned exposed in one. And I've never EVER seen a guy who looked good in one, I don't care how cut he is.

Plus, my wife would leave me if I wore one.

Although I must admit to being a little surprised every time I see a man in a Speedo, there are some men who look pretty darned good in them, I assure you. Tragically, most of the speedo wearers are a little unfortunate looking, but .... I've seen some women in bikinis who maybe could have considered one piece bathing suits.... takes all kinds, right? Keeps life interesting!

Oh Parrot, you devil...... We wives have standards. My DH wore a speedo when we were teens. It was red/white/blue stars and stripes; Looking at pictures is a hoot now !!! Looked great then. Now, well, it would be.....OK....but, well, he probably would agree with you. Although, he does have a SPEEDO for diving, but, I guess that does not count. I have a Speedo too, BTW. It is the funniest thing I own. One piece, looks like a Shotput uniform. But, again, you need something form fitting for under the skin. Otherwise, this 45 year old BOD does not share this site. Oh well..... Take it easy, Sue

The only image I have is of Arnald Swatzanegger in that last pic of him in a speedo! EWWW! Speedo's are for speed swimmers.
Do what you want though it's your vacation!

I wouldn't mind wearing one but would be afraid of being embarrassed with shrinkage after getting out of the pool. I used to be on a swim team when I was a kid but can't seem to find that one.

Yes, unfortunately. I'm sorry, but most men shouldn't wear a speedo and most women shouldn't wear a bikini. Fortunately, that is most of the population and who cares anyway? It's good for a laugh!

What about thong bikinis and

That's a scary thought on 90%

Wear what you want we all need a good laugh now and then, and if your not laughing you must be in a speedo too.
We seen a beached whale in a speedo on our last cruise. I took a picture and have won many contest with that funny thing. So if there is someone out there with the guts to wear it more power to them. But be warned there are people with cameras looking to make a buck. lol
Hope I see a hunk the next time. It will be more interesting to me. I can think of many things to do with that picture.

Yes, men wear Speedos. Some probably shouldn't! I wear one myself at times, depending on the crowd and etc. I find them very confortable and I'm proud of what I have and my wife likes it, too. (I'm referring to my back side, by the way) I'm in my mid 40's now so I don't think I will be wearing one much longer.
I'm on vacation to enjoy so what the heck, most everyone won't see me again, anyway. Same thing goes for some of the women in bikinis on board. Maybe some should wear a little more but I admire those who wear what they want even if they don't leave much to the imagination. Shows that a woman is confident with herself by doing so.

I don't wear a Speedo. 1. I'm a little (a lot?) too old for them. 2. Just don't think there is enough room for "me" and "the boys" in there.
