    I have been invited by some social friends to a pool party for the 4th, I normally wear lose board type shorts...

    a) I don't 'fall out'
    b) they are more comfortable than those damn 'hanana hammocks' trunks as someone called them
    c) just out of habit


    now my son is half kiddingly telling me to 'put it out there'- I am a widower, over 50 and well stay as horny as men 1/2 my age I am told...

    So for you over 40 (bi) men out there what do you recommend?

    Show it or hide it?

    This will be a mixed crowd, no 'kids' so over 30-40... I know its a social group but I also know that this is an open bar, what might happen happens kind of crowd (I am told later in the evening it can get a lot more 'relaxed') so...suggestions?

    If you're comfortable in that crowd with a more revealing swimsuit, then I think you should take the plunge.

    Take the board type and a "hanana hammock" and decide which one to wear once you see what everyone else wearing. Either way you won't feel out of place.

    I would say go for it. I like the option of bringing them to them to the party and then changing once you figure out what the scene is like.

    If it turns into a lot of fun, then it won't matter, since you won't need a bathing suit :biggrin1:

    Hanna Banana sounds like a bad porn name.

    YOu can always wear the speedos under the board shorts, and peel as many layers as the situation calls for. Just an option nobody else has mentioned yet. If all goes well, you will have to look for both later, but I don't think you would mind that.:veryhappy:

    I'm a bit puzzled by the title: Modesty VS um...getting laid.

    I don't see the two as necessarily opposed to each other.

    Wear the Speedo. You cannot help it if you show a bulge. After all it is a pool party.

    I say wear a trunk style, lycra tightie. to show the layout of the banana sideways. then if the night gets wild, I'm guessing it's no-suit time then.

    Nobody should wear board shorts unless they are actually surfing. Wear a normal pair of trunks. If you want a good tan or all about showing off, wear a speedo.

    I would say Catman needs to post some pics before we can really tell him which to wear. What you look like determines whether or not you should be wearing a speedo.

    I would just wear whatever is comfortable. For me, that is board shorts. :biggrin1:

    I would say that you cannot go wrong with the board shorts. You can always change into a speedo or something similar if you feel so inclined.

    Buddy, if you've NOT worn a Speedo before, you're NOT going to be comfortable in it in front of a bunch of women you're hoping to impress.

    Now, with that said, you don't need to move to the other extreme and go with board shorts. Get something in between. Maybe something with a little lycra. Try something with a short leg. Check out vollyball shorts. They look like boxers. If your abs are in good shape, get something that is low rise. If you really want to shwo off, get something light weight and without a liner. Once it's wet, you'll get your message across.

    Good luck.

    a nice square-cut is "age appropriate" and can show as little or as much as you'd like. my verification pic is of me in a pair (in modesty mode)--think they'd look good on ya?
