    Well back in the day there weren't people taking pictures of everything, porn was actually remotely difficult to find, and the nuclear family wasn't wasn't vilified by the media in exchange for single motherhood. Body standards are also higher now, and even if they aren't, social/digital media sure makes it feel that way due to all of the photos that are glorified now on a larger scale. Back then, people went shirtless more often because things were normal; things aren't normal anymore and most guys are more turned on by internet porn than real life experiences.

    This topic has been covered several times in the past few years.

    I wouldn't go shirtless to any stores or restaurants, but around the patio and out on the lawns doing yard work - sure. Around the pool or at the beach - yes. I'm glad I still look good enough to go shirtless. It's simple: diet & exercise.

    I have to admit that I'm very self conscious about going shirtless. Yes, I do have a shirtless pic on my profile, but I'm very critical about all my imperfections. I'm not judgmental about others (just about myself).

    ricky1987 saidA shirtless man here would be inappropriate here no matter how fit he is.

    I'm sad to learn this. So many beautiful men in India.

    Back about six or seven years ago, as my photos here show from 2010/11, I had much more confidence and did have my shirt off a lot… at 48 I looked better than I did at 18… But the last 3 to 5 years I've had several injuries that have cut my workouts back, even my cardio, and even though I still am pretty tight with my diet, age and these slow healing injuries have made me very self-conscious about my physical appearance these days… it's just so much more difficult at 55 now to get back into shape, to be confident enough to take my shirt off…

    Are You Ashamed To Go Shirtless?

    Today, absolutely.

    I never was ashamed for most of my life. But mostly confined to swimming & beach stuff, or gang showers in locker rooms. I think the last time I danced shirtless in a gay club was in 2001, going to the Twin Cities with my BF.

    My problem is age (68 ) and weight gain. Nobody wants to see my body, so I keep it covered. Had its day, but that day is over. I envy, and wish the best, to younger guys who still have bodies to flaunt. I no longer do. icon_sad.gif

    You look awesome here! Hope you can get back on track. Do you mind if I ask what caused your injuries? Were they work out related? Good luck, You can still be an inspiration!!

    I started working out at 35. I was so skinny I vanished when I turned side on.
    I did go shirtless a lot before my workouts started even though I was super skinny. My T shirts came from boyswear.
    Something happened at 35. I employed a 21 y/o guy who resembled a pocket version of Arnold Schwarzenegger. I wanted to look even remotely like him. I started my iron pumping and in a short space of time I was bulking up really well and could not keep a shirt on. I was actually turning heads in shops, in the street, the beach anywhere I went. The more I built on the more I wanted and flaunted in public.
    I am now 62 and nothing has changed. Still pumping, still shirtless in public and putting young guys to shame. It is inevitable time will catch up.
    We have warm to hot weather for 10 months of the year so shirtless is just the norm for me. I did get my certification in fitness and nutrition which has helped me to maintain good shape, so I can keep my shirt off for as long as I can before gravity catches up.

    At the beach? Not ashamed at all. I fall into the middle of the fitness scale and I'm too old to care much about what others think. I don't go looking for excuses to go shirtless, but if I think I'll be more comfortable and it's an appropriate setting, I won't hesitate to go shirtless.

    When I run outside, I'm almost always shirtless. (After putting on a healthy sunblock -- watch out, some are better than others.) http://www.ewg.org/sunscreen/

    I HATE clothes. I wish I can run around naked everywhere. I go naked every time I have the opportunity to and have no shame in public or private (as long as it won't get me arrested). I have a decent body but if I was more built then I'd be a stripper on the side.

    It seems like almost everybody in my generation is afraid to be naked (outside of the bedroom). They do "towel dances" at the gym and other ridiculous things. As for me, no shame in my game!

    Well, I've never been ashamed so far... it's difficult not to think, "man I wish I had that body" the guy next to me has, but it is how it is.

    Love going shirtless but attract more attention than I'd like because of my "pepperoni" size areolas. icon_confused.gif

    Even though my physique is average, I feel that it has some annoying flaws that make it unfit for me to be shirtlessicon_neutral.gif

    I'm quite insecure about my body so I hardly go shirtless unless it's in the right setting like the pool.

    Love seeing fit guys shirtless though. icon_redface.gif
