I have always wanted to do something that brings guys together in our love of gear. It got me thinking that we need to have the swim brief/thong challenge in a setting that is welcome to all. Why not a meet up of guys for a weekend wearing our favorite swimwear?? This would include all guys regardless of sexual orientation or size.

The first question is how many guys would be willing to hang out all weekend in nothing but swimwear? One good thing is the packing would be light, you could fit a ton of swimwear in a carry on bag. It would have to be at a resort that had everything in one place so those who want to relax all weekend can.

The second question is where to have this weekend? Having readers spread all over the country I see two good options. The first is Fort Lauderdale. They have several guest houses and close vicinity to beaches. The second option would be Palm Springs. Which is no stranger to gear weekends? No beaches but a group of men in swim briefs or thongs wouldn’t turn a head by resort owners.

I know that the location would dictate cost for guys on the other coast. If you’re in California, it’s easy to get to Palm Springs in a few short hours by plane or car. If you’re on the east coast, it would be a good 8 hour day with all the travel. And vice versa for those on the west coast for Fort Lauderdale.

This has always been in the back of my mind over the years. Maybe if I put it in a post we can make this happen. I want to be welcoming to all. Our straight gear brothers need a place where you’re encouraged to wear swim briefs. Give them the confidence to go home and rock one at their pools. There are some gay guys I know would love this too!

Just curious what thoughts you guys have on the subject?

  1. This is a great idea! I’ve always wanted to wear in public, but it’s hard to convince myself alone. I think it would require planning months in advance though, and a lot of interest from other people…

  2. I think it’s a great idea as someone who has always wanted to try wearing in public. I think you would have to plan for it months in advance though, and have a lot of people interested to make it happen.

  3. I would love something like this. I am in KS so either way is easy for me. I would vote for beaches – you can’t beat the sand/waves, IMO. It would be a great way to meet all kind of like minded gear guys and their wives/husbands! I don’t know if we would be able to afford something this year as we have already taken two major trips and it isn’t even July yet! It would just depend on dates and cost. Next year would be easier to swing and give more time to plan. I LOVE the idea of packing a bag of thongs & swim briefs, sunscreen and hanging out.

  4. I love this idea. Being a bi guy we need this! Maybe have a West coast get together and a east coast get together. For the West coast Palm springs! And East coast miami?
