    "We acknowledge there are various types of swim attire... however we have a two-layer house code. In this instance, multiple members registered concerns rooted in discomfort and as a result the decision was reached to ask the member to leave the pool area."

    What's a "two-layer code"? I never heard of that term, either. Are they referring to swimsuits that have a front "privacy" panel built into them on the inside, to reduce transparency and a too-revealing outline? Or as we used to say regarding very tight pants for men, clothing that "reveals our religion"?

    I was disappointed when men-only swimming pools abandoned their "no-layer" code. Now I have to wear TWO layers? Anyone heard of this elsewhere? Not that I use mixed swimming pools much anymore, when I did wear Speedo briefs for laps, but what do I need to bring?

    EDIT: Now that I think about it, when I swam in college 45 years ago, during mixed swim periods, or during matches having female spectators when suits were required, I wore a brand called "Ocean-Pool", common issue with school teams before Speedos became the leader.

    They were 100% nylon, no lycra, the men's version made as 2 complete briefs inside each other, joined only at the waistband. The smaller snug inner brief held your junk up tight, while a larger outer brief disguised your male outline. I'd forgotten we had those in the '60s and '70s. Is THAT coming back?

    I'm not sure but I think the "two layer code" referred to management policy where if two members complain they have to act on the complaint.

    I think the real problem with this guy's suit was it was white. White's transparent when wet, which explains why women wear the same shorts to lift in and get away with it because they stay dry. If it were a smaller, black regulation speedo (like I, not to mention others without the body for it, wear to swim laps at the local Y) it wouldn't have been newsworthy.

    Obviously the problem with the guy in the OPs story isn't the swim suit, its that he just isn't that ripped.

    It's innapropriate. They're swim wear to begin with. Someone who wears a speedo to the gym is just a damn perv.

    I am 100% positive that the only ones who complained were homophobic men. This fucked up shit would never happen in Europe - only in the States.
