Default Budgie smugglers - suitable for men?

The Australian election revealed pictures of one of the candidates wearing Speedos ( In OZ, budgie smugglers).

Is this OK to put out before the 9pm watershed?

I like that.

These things should just be outlawed. Nothing worse than seeing a 50 year old gut lord in these. Looks more like a pigeon than a budgie.

Wink Re: Budgie smugglers - suitable for men?

Rather depends on the size of your budgie doesn’t it? I mean if you have a Humming bird then you might choose something less revealing but if you’ve got an Ostrich why not advertise the fact?

size really isnt everything boys!

But I agree hot fit muscly gorgeous men only should be allowed to wear speedos- for the same reasonI wont wear a bikini- it doesn't look good!

Although any man in speedos then looks like hes an arrogant twat so becomes less attractive than the cool dude in surfy style shorts!

Unless hes a pro swimmer of course

why does someone who may be a proficient swimmer and wear proper attire look like an 'arrogant twat'?

i for one would never ever wear 'surfy shorts' to go swimming..

In the 60s you had to wear speedos as shorts were banned at the local swimming pool.

One of the problems with Speedos was their inability to hide interest in the ladies
