Mankinis | Men In Bikinis
It's the natural progression from men in lingerie really, men in bikinis. Borats' mankini broke some serious ground for men wanting to experience the joy of covering their 'n' parts on their chests. (I can't type the whole word for fear of triggering some kind of adult filtering system with flashing lights and a burly guard who probably won't be wearing lingerie, so I have to be very careful what I say.) But in spite of the tireless promotional work done by our favorite Khazakstani friend, men wishing to wear bikinis to the beach or local swimming pool may find themselves the object of unfair scrutiny.
What can be done about this dilemma? Well, there are a couple of approaches that can be taken when it comes to men wearing bikinis. On the one hand, there is the bold approach, where both bikini top and bottom are worn with pride and disregard for any potential sniggers from other beach goers. This approach is not for the faint of heart.
Alternatively there is the more subtle, stealth approach to the issue, whereby just the bottoms are worn, creating the illusion of a man in a particularly fetching pair of speedos. It's rare for men who wear speedos to be messed with. Potential bullies know that anyone with the courage to wear a speedo in public is not one who will bow to the jeers and shoves of those who may disapprove. Who knows how many thousands of men already slip under the radar every year, wearing bikini bottoms to the beach, safe in the knowledge that few dare peer at a man's speedos too closely. It's the perfect solution, hiding in plain sight, enjoying the bikini without being subjected to the uneducated, Neanderthal responses of others wearing their scraps of material in more socially acceptable configurations.
There are of course, propriety issues to consider when one wears any form of skimpy underclothing to the beach. Where do you draw the line between looking hot in the bottom half of your mankini and just wearing your panties for all to see? The clever folks behind this video have sorted the problem out for you.
Whether you're male or female, if your tastes are flamboyant or more reserved, there is a bikini out there for you. Don't be afraid to wear your bikinis with pride (and a healthy dosage of sun screen, tanning is nothing more than a slow cancer causing burning of the body's largest organ.)
