As many of you may have already heard or read, Alton Towers, the "UK's most thrilling theme park," recently decided to ban one not-so-thrilling attraction: men in skimpy Speedo bathing suits or similar form-fitting swim trunks.
"We feel this small brief style is not appropriate for a family venue so we are advising male bathers to wear more protective swimwear such as shorts," said Alton Towers Resort sales and marketing director Morwenna Angove. "We are also looking into offering complimentary male waxing, which will ensure we preserve the dignity of all our guests."
Although the resort is getting flack from certain female patrons (supposedly), the press, and the offending Speedo wearers, I say, amen. And I believe I am speaking for the majority of women when I say, Unless you are an Olympic swimmer or diver or male underwear or swimwear model (preferably in an Olympic venue or on a photo shoot, respectively), please keep your junk to yourself (or display only in the privacy of your home).
For the record, while I am anti-Speedo bikinis and thongs on men I am all for (or pro) a little manscaping and/or back waxing.
This has been a public service announcement.
