Do You Take It Off...
Or Keep It Covered?
It's summertime and everyone knows that summer means sandy beaches, swimming pools, the smell of suntan lotion, and, of course, fine shirtless papis! But how do you really feel about showing off your body? Well, we asked you, our qvBrothers across the country, whether of not you feel conscious about the way you look in a bathing suit. Here's what you told us!

"Yes, I am conscious of my body! It's more of a shyness, though. But then again, I've seen people with worse bodies-in bathing suits, leather shorts, daisy-dukes and such...so I don't feel too bad."
-38 years old, Los Angeles, CA

"No, I'm not conscious, whatsoever! Although I am a little chunky, I really don't care what I look like shirtless because I've seen fatter guys walking around in Speedos."
-23 years old, La Puente, CA

"I was conscious about my body when I was younger, but when I came out of the closet, I felt a lot more comfortable in my own skin. I started to eat wisely and work out, and now I actually prefer to be half naked-that is, in a bathing suit!"

"No, I'm not conscious because I look good in everything I wear!"

"Nope-I'm not conscious at all! For one thing, I don't look that bad in a bathing suit and for another, if people don't like what they see, then it's their loss-not mine!"
-31 years old, Chicago, IL

"Yes, I'm very conscious of what I look like-so much that I've not worn a bathing suit in nine years!"
