If you check out www.breezes.com there is a video link on the home page showing highlights.  One of the highlights is a woman running down the beach in a thong, with her male companion in board shorts.

I am not sure this is a "highlight".  Seems like showing women in skimpy attire and men in board shorts only perpetuates the double standard and marginalizes men who want to wear less than board shorts.  One would hope that at least they could have had the man in a standard bikini.

 I'm with DavyJ on this one. Although I didn't do an exhaustive search of the site,
*every* video and still shot that I saw of a man in a swimsuit had knee-length
board shorts *without exception*. This just further reinforces the stereotype of
women=skimpy ok, men=skimpy not ok. Since this is billed as a upper scale
resort chain you'd think you would see at least *one* guy in a bikini; plus some
of the resorts say "no children". Sigh--we've still got a loooong way to go.

I see it over and over again in the travel magazines cathering to the US clientel: beautiful young women in tiny bikinis or thongs, and their husbands/boyfriends in long to the knee boardshorts.  Never speedos, or bikinis on the guys, always boardshorts.  But, here in Europe, you do see the guys in briefer swimwear, mostly trunk style suits, sometimes speedos.  I've accepted the fact that American males have so many hangups regarding their bodies that we are never going to see mainstream America accept speedos.  Too bad also, Europeans are following the same thinking as their American cousins, and wearing the boardshorts. On a recent trip to Croatia, about 50% of the guys on the beach were in speedo style suits so it was encouraging.  However, it is a matter of time before that changes.  I'll still be wearing my bikinis, sometimes thongs, because there is no way I'll be caught dead in a boardshorts!

Sorry no pictures--yet

Winter Music Conference is underway this week/weekend in Miami- most events on Southbeach.  While in the car I've been listening to Sirius satellite radio broadcasts from the festival.  They have their people interviewing some of the music industry people at the W hotel  (22 and Collins) and have had day and night pool parties.   Anyway DJ Liquid Todd one of the Sirius guys is a thong fan.  He's mentioned the thongs on girls around the pool about hourly.

One interview was with Louie Vega and his singer wife Anane  (A-non-ee).   At the end Todd said "I like that thong you're wearing"  she said "well thank you- I've got to watch it- if I stand a certain way it can bunch up here in the middle" He laughed.  (I can only assume she was talking about some creepage in the front!)  (yes I'm working on finding pictures- they've posted a lot of their pictures on facebook and Twitter)

There are tons of pool parties on the schedule....wish I was there to tan and shake my ass at the same time.

Good news but also bad news.  78% of Americans said topless sunbathing for women is acceptable, but 34% say it's bad equiette to wear a speedo- hate to think if they asked about a thong!

If 34% say speedos are bad etiquette, then that means a majority, 66% think it is good  !!

Now for topless, let us assume 100% of the guys said topless was ok, (50%) of total, that means at least 56% of the women thought topless was ok (the other 28% of 78%).

Using he same logic, lets assume that the 34% who thought speedos were bad etiquette were all guys, that would be 68% of the guys were thumbs down on speedos, and almost a third, 32% were thumbs up, and since we have used up all the negative percentages, a full 100% of the women were thumbs up to speedos !!

new survey from match.com a singles matching service in the usa - a fact which shouldn't be overlooked!  These respondents are looking to be matched with a date- can't do it on their own.

Anyway 91 percent of women say no speedos on guys on a date- and 53 percent of men say it's unacceptable for a woman to wear a thong!  Yeah probably because each of them has never been out on date with a woman  or man under 280 lb.

Well, they aren't really requiring a bikini, they also allow men's boxer-style trunks or board shorts, but not the biker-type shorts he wanted to wear.  However, they do require speed swimming tests.  So this story has the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Good that he focuses on how crazy it would be to try the test in trunks or board shorts because they are so slow.  Bad, in that he continues to perpetrate the stereotype that he is too old to wear a bikini.  Its hard to tell from the picture in the story, but he looks in perfectly good shape to me.  And ugly in that the park department really has no business telling him he can't wear biker-type shorts.  If he can pass all the tests, then who cares what he is wearing?  Can you imagine a drowning person being rescued, but complaining that "I don't want to be rescued by anyone wearing that, please send someone else!"
