Do women really dislike guys in skimpy underwear and swimwear?
Is there really an answer to the question, do women dislike guy’s in skimpy undies and swimwear? I phrased it dislike, because that is the impression we are given basically everywhere. I know we’ve discussed the negativity before on the blog, but why not some more. Most things related to guys in skimpy underwear or swim attire is not done in a positive way.
I used this example before. I’ve seen several animated movies that they put one of the characters in a swim brief and even a thong. I mean the new Hotel Transylvania movie, they put Dracula’s father, Vlad, in a swim brief. Even had a couple characters in the first one in them. What do you hear during those parts? Most people getting a laugh out of it. So even at a young age kids are given the impression that skimpy swimwear is just a joke for guys. I know I’m a bit off of my initial question. My point about this is we are being molded to what society and fashion people think is appropriate for public viewing.
Okay, back to women and their thought. If you look on the Internet you can find threads of negativity. You may see things like ewww yuck that is gross. Or maybe let’s leave something to the imagination. Then here is a GQ article that is giving the impression women aren’t into swim briefs. They survey 400 women (think they could have done more than that) and the verdict is long trunks at 55% and of course swim briefs at 2%. Though there is a nice comment by one person surveyed. “They seem like they are shamed into wearing oversized trunks that are too long. They shouldn’t be heckled for wearing short trunks or even a Speedo. It’s their body and choice.” Nice to see comments like that out there.
Based on that it seems like women are disliking skimpy swimwear at least. I’ll assume underwear too. Though you do see the hating more on the average guy, but if you are a swimmer or diver than it is okay. Or maybe if you are in great physical shape it is okay to rock a swim brief.
Is this really the majority of women’s view of this men’s attire? Is there that much closed mindedness out there? Are women not attracted to the bulge or the butt? Is it all about the upper body?
To me that is hard to believe even though they say we are wired differently. My experience is that there is an interest in our lower extremity. I get more people that have had positive reactions to their skimpy underwear and swimwear choice than negative from women. I tend to think once women are introduced properly to them that they kind of like what they see. Maybe it takes them a bit to warm up with being use to just seeing the norm, but in the end they do enjoy the bikinis, thongs, and/or swim briefs.
Do you think women really dislike guys in skimpy underwear and swimwear? Is it just the haters that voice their opinion more that makes it seem to be the case? Is it social norms that make people think guys should cover up more than women?
Guess in the end the only woman’s thoughts that really matter are my wife’s. I don’t get any hating there. She encouraged me to break out the swim brief publicly, so I’d say no disliking there. Then she tries to get glimpses of what underwear I’ve got one, so I’d say it is a safe bet that she likes my choice of underwear and swimwear.
