First Impressions: Men in Black (Speedos)

When we found out we were moving to Brazil all I heard about were the scantily clad women and their thong bathing suits.

I didn't here too much about the men.

One word-SPEEDO. (or as Guapo likes to call them, "marble-bags")

Here in Brazil, men of all ages and all body types (I'm not talking about Fabio here) are donning their speedos. And not just for swimming-o no. Here speedos are appropriate attire for:

  • swimming
  • volleyball
  • jogging
  • biking
  • eating
  • lounging
  • walking about town

Who knew?

I will try to get some photos so you can get the full effect.

"marble-bags"- that's a new one! My hubs calls it a banana hammock!

Why can't you get in on Good Mail? I know how to fill out custom forms!

Men in Brazil must think a lot more of their bodies than the rest of us do. :) I love "marble bags".

You know what I say about speedos, right? I say "NO".
I'm gonna have to pass on the marble bags.
Or the banana hammock.

PS: I am so feliz you are back!

Thanks for the warning if we ever venture there. :-)

We were swimming the other day and saw an old man in speedos. The kids thought it was so gross. I agreed!

LOL Maybe I should send the Speedo men some of the too-short-short-shorts women around here!

LOL, can't wait for the pictures!

Why is it gross for a man to wear swimwear next to his body but it isn't for a woman?
