She doesn’t swim at a pool hardly ever. We live next to a lot of rivers and lakes so swims there.

Wow, that is conservative. Still, understandable given your locale. I had relatives in eastern Oregon.

That doesn't even look like swimwear, more like just a tank top and shorts. If it is actual swimwear, I'm assuming it's targeted more towards much older women. Based on it though, is it safe to assume that your sister has body issues of her own about herself?

What's interesting, is why people think bodies are disgusting or inappropriate. Heads ok, necks ok, arms are ok, male chest is ok, female chest is to be hidden, abs are ok, hips are disgusting, legs are ok and feet are ok. The problem isn't really the parts that are disgusting but people have been made to think that they are disgusting. We're not born with an instinct that tells us to hide certain bits of our bodies because they're bad, thats something that people are taught and it is perpetuated. People have so much baggage about their own and others bodies.

I’ve never had any negative comments but I’ve heard laughing and a few times young boys have asked their mothers why I was wearing my underwear at the pool.

I’ve polled a group of older women in the hot tub at my athletic club whether or not my speedos were offensive. They said no and seemed puzzled that I would ask. I think they enjoy the view.

Wracking my brains to remember if anyones ever mocked me for speedoing and I honestly can't remember a single occasion. Yeah there's been a few times people have done double takes but that's it. England's pretty much an "I'll mind my business and you mind yours" place.

A few times I've been aware of other men checking me out and there's been an approval vibe rather than a sexual sense, kind of; "Speedos, you can, I can't", sort of thing.

I think men collectively have been saddled with a puritan dresscode without their approval. It's as though "Doing sexy" is a sign of male weakness not strength. In summer you see lads who've put the hours in, rocking their bare chests but their clothes are really baggy and unflattering. It's a wierd disconnect.

It really is. I've stayed in touch with a friend from the northeast who is from Thailand. I noticed on his FB page that he's spent a lot time in the gym and has a body to die for...from the waist up. In the pic, he's wearing the baggiest board shorts I've ever seen. Disconnect is the operative word.

They're agreed upon social norms. Certainly not anything inherent. In Scandinavia, little kids run around naked. (I did as a little kid here in the U.S. when we went to the beach.) In the Nordic countries, no one goes into shock if a woman is sunbathing topless. I think religion probably has had something to do with it. There's some passage of the Bible that talks about modesty of appearance. I flunked out of Sunday School.

You never know these days, what will shock and what will get mocked; and what will simply get accepted. Recently, to deliberately shock her neighbors in Conservative Alabama, I volunteered to "check the mail" (pun intended) while visiting my mother-in-law with my wife. I walked out to the mailbox at the street in my speedo and a cowboy hat and took a very, very prolonged gander at what had been delivered, even "accidentally" dropping some items I had to bend over to pick up. When I got back inside, my wife showed me a couple of pics she took.

Only a week later, my wife says... "Oh, I sent a pic of you in your speedo to my boss (a younger woman) while we were all drinking. Says you're her second favorite man now, behind her husband."

So, now not only has my mother-in-law seen me in speedos, her neighbors too, but also my wife's boss has me on her cell.

All this to say.... No mocking.
Sorry boys, straight and already taken!

Good to hear. I think a lot is to do with confidence, attitude, and (sorry to say) age. If you act like you own it then you are less likely to get hassle. Teens that seem to comment on others swimwear are more likely to make fun of someone their own age than someone of their parents age. Also, in my case, a 'don't mess with me' look also works!!

I usually visit our local river, and there is a low train vessel where only one lane of traffic can go through at one time. I have people who honk and give me thumbs up.

Once, at another river location, I was walking to my truck which was about 100ft up the road. This wacko lady was walking the opposite direction and started yelling in the top of her lungs..couldn’t understand a word she was saying, but it did seem that I triggered her!!

The only negative I got was a few years back at a local lake..it was a very hot day and just decided to stop. I changed into a pair of turbos (always have a pair in my truck for emergencies!)

A kid no more than 12 years old started yelling from far away...put some pants on ...over and over. Sorry kid, I didn’t pack a pair of Levi’s!

It actually happened to me on bondi beach. One girl really seemed to like them and wanted a picture but there was one really loud girl that was basically hollering at me as I walked across the beach not far from her. I just kept walking and didn’t even acknowledge her in any way. She looked like the bitch haha.

Well this was unexpected. I've never really been mocked. My mum rides a lot in a crazy riding group and they invited me to go riding with them. I do a lot of riding normally and normally in proper riding kit because its more comfy. I turn up thinking its all going to be pretty chill so I just wear my street kit. Mum just looks at me and says "Are you wearing that!". Ummm, yep. Then her doctor friend rolls up... she also looks at me and says.... "Oh, are you wearing that!". :lol:

Ok ok, I get the hint, next time I'll wear my tight riding kit for the old girls. :lol: :lol:

Closest I came to being mocked was when I was snorkeling in Hawaii. I was cruising along the sandy bottom on a breath hold dive in about 15 to 20 feet deep water when I looked up towards the surface and saw two teenage girls, one of which was trying to get her companion's attention, pointing down towards me and visibly laughing. I was wearing my black, 1" Speedo, and I guess she never saw a man in a speedo before. I hope she got a mouthful of sea water and choked. Not really. Well, maybe.
