A silly question, but what the hey.

Does anyone know why the Australian and some Asian lifeguards wear their
swimming trucks up their bums?  Besides to either get attention, I am at
a lost.

More than 'silly', I'd say:

Did you observe right-hand drive trucks or left-hand drive trucks
up their bums?
Actually, you would have seen an Australian lifeguard wearing a lorry...

are you sure the suits arent designed that way?

there are men's thong type (***floss) suits available.   they have
only a strap in the back so the entire buttock shows.

as for the motivation to show off your ***.. well mebbe thats better

Why were the original olympics done in the ***?

If it were legal to do so in competition (i assume it isnt), would ***
floss be faster since it would be less restrictive to movement?

First things first:

A speedo is not a pair of trunks, let alone a a pair of trucks!
In Aus, a truck is a lorry!
Also in Aus, (and a lot of other English speaking places), a "bum" is
what Americans call a "butt".

Now, there actually is a valid reason why Aussie surf lifesavers hike
their speedos up into their bums; it's to avoid slipping on their surf
boards.  No doubt they also realize that it looks "hot".  Most Aussie
men have nice physiques and don't seem to be prudish about showing them
off at the beach.

As for "***floss", I prefer to call them thong suits.  They are quite
popular outside the U.S. and I think if a guy has a nice ***(or bum)
he should definitely wear one.  They are great to swim in.  I would like
to start wearing a thong to my local Bally's but haven't got up the
nerve to try it yet.

Later!

I assume you are referring to lifeguards in surf lifesaving boats.

Lifeguards tuck their swimming costumes (speedos, swimmers, bathers,
trunks or whatever) up their buttocks to avoid slipping as they row.

Lifeguards do not do the same on surfboards, which are so rough that
it would do severe damage to their inside thighs and/or buttocks.

That's why surfers wear board shorts, which are quite long and make
swimming a drag :-)

If you want to find out about surf life saving in Australia try:
http://www.lifesaving.org.au/

To go straight to the Bondi Beach site (Bondi is not the best beach in
Australia, just the closest to Sydney City):
http://www.ozemail.com.au/~tanyam/

Happy swimming.

Aussies wear cossies, swimmers, swim suits or bathers - clothing by any
name. Speedos are out since they sold out from being the original Aussie
cossie to become international. The only original Aussie swim company left
is Eyeline...so we also have Eyelines...

A truck in Australia is a truck! A lorry can be found in England!

If an AUssie is on a surf board he'll be wearing 'boardies' or board shorts.
If he is rowing a life saving boat - he's a boatie and HE WILL be wearing
his cossies like a thong in order not to slip on the seat when rowing!

Boats are a major part of most surf life saving carnivals and boaties are
the salt of the Surf scene!
