I stayed at the Golden Banana and while it's not exclusively gay, it's owned by a gay dutch guy and most of the staff are gay -- very gay friendly, and speedos are definitely okay here.

I had a wonderful tuk-tuk driver who has since obtained a tour guide license and I've referred him to a few friends who have all come back raving about him. If you're interested, PM me and I'll send you the deets.

you'll LOVE Siem Reap. I loved it and am planning to go back next year.

Thanks for this feedback! I was contemplating the Golden Banana for a stay of 4 days, and your reply just confirmed my selection. And thanks for the Speedo comment...lol :-)

This will be my 1st trip to Siem Riep, so much looking forward to it.

Also, I am going to get a regular room versus the B&B style. Of course A/C is a must. I am planning on being in SEP December 16-20th.

Mahalo,

Patrick :-)

Please enlighten me ! I know it is not just an US thing.

One poster suggests it is because men don't want to show something is "too small" - I like to look at it in all shapes and sizes anyway.

I think wearing fashionable fit swimwear is a very gay thing and a mark of distinction for our community - not the original Speedo brand of course but something like this http://www.olafbenz.com/en_AC/collec...tml?no_cache=1
I lived in east and southeast asia for many years. Men's speedo are very acceptable in there, unlike in the U.S.

An old thread, bud sadly noticed a huge change in South America regarding Victorian Anglosaxon "pruderie". Even in Rio de Janeiro, "macho straight males" now wear those horrible loose boxer shorts, some very long and again:. This is unhygienic and I noted males in the street wearing this inappropriate dress for swimming (and after walking around the rest of the day - I wonder if they also sleep in them) scratching constantly their genitals. Must be the moist and the bacteria growing under the heath . Prefer NOT to imagine the smell. Tight swimwear, preferably low cut briefs are simply the best for swimming (and for people who love the sun). Nothing to do with age, body shape (and sexual orientation).
