Subject: My brother's bulging Speedo
Question: add to Watch List | reply
Once a year we visit my brother and his family. Invariably we spend a day at the beach. My brother is endowed with a tool that would send a mare off and running. He's only five feet two inches tall, which only makes it look larger. Yet his preferred beachwear is Speedos. His wife thinks it's cute. But damnit, it looks like he shoplifted a chicken. My wife just (privately) says "My God!" People stare and whisper. I have a hard time walking down the beach with him. Would I be out of line if I asked him to maybe wear one of those knee-length swimsuits?

Subject: That third leg problem
Reply: read original | add to Watch List | reply
My good friend had the same issue. He is extremely well-endowed (about eight inches flaccid) and always wears Speedos at the beach. I asked him if he just likes showing off. He said on the contrary that he doesn't like showing off. He said that if he wears trunks, his penis slips out of the pants leg whenever he sits down, and the 'moving' bulge is very noticeable in loose-fitting clothing. I suggested a jock strap, and he's now back to wearing trunks instead of Speedos. Unless of course we're at the nude beach...

Subject: Bulging jealousy talking?
Reply: read original | add to Watch List | reply
I think it sounds a little bit like you´re jealous of your brother´s blessings 'downstairs.' Let him show off what God has given him. If this was a case of two sisters, of which one had big breasts, the atmosphere around this conversation and the replies to your questions might be slightly different.

He's your bro, man. Just tell him no one wants to see his package and that he looks like a dork.

I don't know what you should tell your brother (believe me, he already knows), but thanks for the biggest laugh I've had in a long time!

It would depend on the relationship you share with your brother as to how he would respond to your request he wear loose-fitting trunks. My guess is that he's a show-off and likes the attention and would probably not comply. Besides, in Speedos the monster is under control. Seeing it swing freely in oversized trunks might accentuate it even more.

Hey, He's only 5'2' tall. Let him enjoy a little glory. His wife certainly likes it, and is probably proud to show off what she gets to the other ladies. Jealous?

Wally, you are not your brother's penis's keeper. Keep your mind on your own crotch.

Reply: read original | add to Watch List | reply | request removal
Could it be possible that your brother is suffering from what is often known as 'Napoleon Syndrome'? Often times men of smaller stature (usally short men)tend to find other ways to compensate for their shorter height. It can manifest itself in so many ways. My husband (who at 5'6' is considered short for a man) 'suffers' from this disorder. He is always trying to be 'Mr. Toughguy'. Never wants anyone to think that he is a pushover because he is 'short'.

Your brother may literally NEED to express himself through his Speedos to redirect people's focus from his height.

Reply: read original | add to Watch List | reply | request removal
Who got your brother the bright odea of wearing a speedo in the first place. Also he should be considerate of not only you, but more importantly of his kids, cause god only knows how embarassed they are about their fathers choice of underwear. Personally my dad wears grape smugglers to bed and when friends are over in the morning it is so aweful when they wake up and he is standing over them. With Christmas just past you could proably just send him a late present that contains a pair of 'baggys', which are what everybody else is wearing.

Subject: Your Brother's Bulging Speedo
Reply: read original | add to Watch List | reply | request removal
As my friend attested in another response to your inquiry, I too am endowed with a sizeable load of 8 inches flaccid and twelve erect. Being 'hung like a horse' is no blessing, believe me. The stares, the comments, the turning heads are a constant part of my life. At one time, after an embarrasing moment when I got a spontaneous erection on the climbing rope in gym class at age 16 and had a good 5 inches exposed to the world out of the top of my gym shorts, I even begged my parents for reduction surgery. In the past year I have been subject to two strip searches at airports because they thought I was concealing something. True, the jock strap and knee-length baggy shorts help but the bulge is still noticeable. My urologist suggested I use surgical tape to secure my package running sideways across my front and I have found that to be helpful, except I have to shave to make it work, which can be a bother (and even then I get the old 'pickle in the pocket' joke on occasion). Just remember to place gauze over your penis and not to tape directly to it or you'll really be sorry.

Brothers too. Doesn't matter how he's equipped, he could be hung like a hamster and he'd still look like a dork wearing Speedos.
