Hot beach guys in Speedo swimsuits; another perfect winter day in Florida ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I live in a beach community on Florida’s Gulf coast, west of St. Petersburg. This time of year is Spring Break season, and tons of college boys will crowd the shore, but you’ll never see a single one wearing a Speedo-style swimsuit like the guys in these photos.

I’ve spent considerable time in Europe, and over there you’ll see guys in skimpy suits all the time, but never here in the U.S., unless you visit a gay beach. American men are just too modest about their bodies.

I spent a pleasant evening with two friends last night, after spending most of the day in my car, picking up my boat from the Suzuki dealer and getting it back on the water. Thankfully, I had help from a young man who lives near the marina where I keep the boat, and everything went smoothly. When I got home, I took a two-mile run, and after I shower I drove into the city. My friends and I drank beer and yakked away. Then we dined on takeout pizza and salad from our favorite pizza place. The food was tasty, and so was the company, and I didn’t get home until 9:30 PM.

I got to bed last night around eleven, but ended up sleeping late this morning, until 9:30. Now I’m taking care of correspondence and I will work on edits for my novel-in-progress before lunch. Then I’ll head back into town to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. Outside it’s so beautiful–72 degrees, sunny and dry, with only a light breeze. I wish this weather would last all year long. 🙂

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will wish you all a very pleasant Friday, wherever you might be today. 🙂

  1. Just wondering,… Where on Earth a young boy like this one at the top would walk outside wearing LESS~than what he’d wear WITH p~j’s in Winter ? I can only imagine he was paid well for the stunt and wanted the photo taken quickly. The ONLY time i recall seeing anyone remotely close to THIS was in Jr. High school, at the pool locker room with other teens (and even THEN i was shy and modest, tho big and healthy.)

    • Sad that William as a young man was so shy and modest about his own body. When I was at a British all-boys school we swam naked (of course, there was a degree of apprehension among some of us that our bodies might react to so much male nudity!). I detect that in America it might not be possible to openly admire youthful male beauty without a presumption that you are gay. The young man shown, incidentally, is simply lovely.

      • Hello, Harry. Thanks for writing. Although I love Florida and the U.S., I sometimes wonder if I’d been happier were I born in Europe, where male beauty is better appreciated and being gay was not a stigma at the time I was a young man. And yes, the blond boy in the photo is stunning, isn’t he?
