is this socially acceptable?
are you pregnant and a woman?
im a man with a beautiful coat of lustrous shiney hair on my back
i thought it was what spoddy kids on holiday did.
QUITE few years ago. i was very self conscious about my body so i went swimming in the sea with a t-shirt and a wooly skirt on, all holiday :(
go really.. salty?
But didn't it soak up water and make you so heavy you sunk to the bottom of the ocean?
especialy not at ATP.
it's a social necessity.
and i fear being judged.
i havent been in a swimming pool for about 6 years as a result
from an arson attack on my cot when i was a child, actually
I wouldn't wear a t-shirt.
are you serious?
also im sure i've seen your belly before. it looked fine.
2) i'm not really scarred
3) i'm perfectly comfortable with being naked in front of people during the sexytimes, and im not overweight at all. i just have a really hairy back and this is officially sick, disgusting and wrong.
i'll take you aside and show youy
i'm actually so excited :D
lots of hair fascinates me
well played champ.
My unclothed flabbiness is only made worse by the fact there are no clues or warnings to it when I'm clothed. It makes it all the more shocking
to add external clues. That way, no-one's that shocked when I whip out the moobs.
i'll be the one at atp with a rug on his shoulders and 50 lbs of jelly attached to his front.
Should I be excited?
i thought (through eager checking and then disappointment) that you were pitchforking?
BUGGER. My hopes = raised, then cruelly ripped apart like a wasp in the mouth of an Alsatian.
darn it. one day, one day...
this summer zonino thing, when and where? i don't know how to check...
All-dayer, BBQ, bands, banter, bamos, big dogs, bruising choons.
Now i remember why i didn't think i could go. it's because i can't go.
fuck! i am on the last day of my annual trip to scotland.
i need answers. this is important
'Should I wear a balaclava ALL THE TIME' thread yet.
hint: you have recently had appendicitis.
i've just got hella testosterone/genetics
Get a wetsuit
but people will assume you have some sort of huge scar that you're trying to hide and feel sorry for you. then they'll crowd round you going 'but alcxxk, we're all friends here, why don't you just take off you t-shirt?' and you'll eventually crack, rip it off, to which people will then say 'you're fine, what the hell were you worried about?' and then move away from you in a slightly disgusted manner.
unless you do have a massive scar.
you'd probably get a load of funny looks
most pools have an hour or two per day where the pool becomes a haven for people lacking in social confidence, or people wishing to cover up for religious reasons, where you would likely be amongst others in t-shirts, which should make the whole thing more comfortable
another option: a guy I work with swims in a full-body lycra suit, as he does some outdoor swimming and wants to stay used to the slightly restricted movement a swimming wetsuit provides. could be less weird than a t-shirt, but more frogman-like. choices choices.
i cannae afford no other swimtimes
everything is socially acceptable.
i might dress up in fancy dress, just to be the crazy festival LOONY OMG
awkward indie boys standing at the pool edge wearing t-shirts BUT OH NO
do you wear dino jr or patti smith tee? Why must things be so awkward.
about it :)
because they'll be too busy worrying about themselves and the way THEY look in a swimsuit.
can i ask, is is socially acceptable for girls under the age of 12 to wear one pieces?
is he in charge of these things?
should i PM him?
also, are you going to both ATPs? I know you said something about it, but i forgot.
and i shall wear tshirts in the pool at both
me and steve ar gonna be the cool kidz. and yeah, like hbs says, if yo udont wear a tshirt, how can we know how cool you are???
i dont think i will EVER wear a bikini, i'd feel mega uncomfortable. I bought a new blue swimsuit for ATP :D it was literally the only one that fit me in debenhams and wasn't a really hideous flowery pattern.
a bit of belly is LUSH
cuddly and cute and boy-y
I'd presume to be the standard definition...
with physical characteristics inbetween paul hawkins and jarvis cocker, yes.
him and Nicky Campbell. My brain is malfunctioning.
I'd be a rubbish psychotherapist.
im not saying FATTIE fat fat but being bigger than me is good
why does anyone go nekkidbodied?
he bloody thinks everyones's gonna be looking at him or somehting
with a right bush, I couldn't shave cos I was growing it to get it waxed. I pretended I was one of those people that didn't care. The worst that'll happen is people will stare and point or young girls will laugh
its a Serious Music Festival. there will be girls that i'll at some point attempt to molest tho, and i dont want to show them the goods too early
2) a stubbly back is worse than a hairy back
especially on the flumes !
omg i would rly like to do that
as others have said.
i'm not going to go into any pools as i'm scared of water :(
I won't be upset if happen upon you in the pool and you're wearing a t-shirt. Although I wouldn't be upset if you weren't and had your hairy back exposed.
Those of you going to EITS ATP may even get to see the commandercool birthmark in the swimming pool :o
BACK SACK CRACK
BACK SACK CRACK
when you could swim in the sea instead? Crazy man. Plus if you swim in the sea in a t-shirt, you could just claim that you were being super-crazy and spontaneous and just leapt in, as opposed to in a swimming pool where there's changing rooms and that so your attire has obviously been carefully selected.
come on, it's going to be 22 degrees on Saturday, it won't be much colder than the swimming pool, unless you're going to have a little paddle in the baby pool, which would just make you look like a paedophile.
but yeah i'll swim in the sea if you do too at a well timed time.
looking forward to it, you big hairy nonce.
i havent swum in 6 years, and i was pretty bad at it then.
i didn't know there was a pool at ATP, swimming in the sea sea ftw.
Proper answer: no t shirt, man up.
i'm TOO MANLY. i'd scare you, blotch-face
and at ATP everyone will be 10x more neurotic about it, so ho cayz
and souped up on steroids or something?
it looks like i'm wearing fur trousers when i take real trousers off.
i do have a picture of my hairy, hairy legs on flickr that has liek 200 views or something. so, someone must like it...
But excessive hair FTW.
embrace your hirsute back by growing a beard and your other bodily hair to match
upon leaving the pool, shake your entire body to rid yourself of the water, and bask in your fluffiness
shave a bands name onto your chest or something to correctly display coolness
therefore swimming is out of the question.
ATP is hardly Bondi Beach and there is an absence of enviable bodies, tending towards either fat or emaciated, with an emphasis on deathly pallor.
I just embrace my weediness, in the style of Mr Muscle.
slap it on, wait for 5 minutes, wash off, no hair!
