Hey Guys, What’s Your Swimwear Style?

Swimming. An activity characterized by many as being exhilarating, freeing, or just plain fun. Although summer vacation is almost over for many of us there still is plenty of time to enjoy the beach and heat across the globe.

Some of us take little notices as to what we wear to the pool/beach etc., especially us guys. But there is one thing I can say is that there are certain types of styles certain men gravitate towards. There is the short-short man, the Speedo wearing dude or the long board short traditional lad. I myself fall in between the short-short and board short range. But there isn’t anything wrong with wearing the Speedo if you body is right for it.

We all know them, have met them, or possibly you yourself are on of them… and “they” are that one manipulative person that will do anything in their power to get their way even if it means a not so great outcome for the person next to them. I was inspired to write this post after reading the Crucible which is a 1953 play written by Arthur Miller. He wrote the play as a way of relieving his “guilt” due to his family’s involvement in The Salem Witch Trials back in 1692.  Continue Reading
