I enjoyed swimming at school. I wasn’t particularly good at it, but I enjoyed it. After the end of third year I had a choice of sport I wished to specialise in in PE. I was going to go for swimming until I found out two things. 1. No other guys were taking it (not that bothered by that realy) and 2. you had to wear ‘performance’ swimwear.
By performance swimwear they meant Speedo’s. Now, a growing teenage boy does not normally choose to wear speedo’s! Yes, there is the issue of being able to see the size of certain things, but in my case it was more down to my belly. I wasn’t fat, but just not toned or super-skinny.
Speedo’s do look good on well toned guys, but on anyone else they are just awful! Take a look at the picture above – they are both good looking guys, but (an I am sure you agree) should be wearing budgie smugglers.
Needless to say, I ended up choosing football. I love football, but I am a bit crap at it. Thankfully it was during the winter term which meant that it was canceled most weeks. I survived PE, and I am now a bit of a slob. And I will continue my (personal) oath never, ever to wear Speedo’s….. unless I suddenly develop a body like….
I apologise for the crapness of this post. it did make more sense in my head.
