I dont have any brothers and my dad used to wear a tee shirt even on the beach which was pretty weird....

Public male shirtlessness is a lot more common and socially accepted in England than it is in Ireland.

If they have a good body, then the beach, or park, never in the middle of town.

The best summer look for Guys with decent bodies is similar to this, :p
Mutley your taste in men is as bad as your taste in music....;)

However its interesting that male shirtlessness and public nudity in general is more acceptable in former "Communist" countries than in the west...

No pretty middle of the road....Infact I dislike born agains....Experiance and observation...Some can be alright but a lot are very superfical, arrogant and nuerotic...My homophobia comes more from Socialism than my Church going...

Are you socialist or anti-socialist?

The problemn here is that our workers' movement was destoried during the civil war and never really got off the ground again...The Irish Labour Party is more about middle class than socialism...

I cant remember who said it but some famous guy once said that if homosexuality would vanish off the face of the earth facism would vanish with it...Homosexuality tends to be bred by either very militaristic cultures or very hedonistic extravagent ones...Both pretty far from socialism...

Interesting point. If you look into the membership of fascist parties like Eoin O'Duffy and the Blueshirts in Ireland, or Ersnt Roehm and the Brown Shirts in Nazi Germany it does seem to attract gay men. And the reverse it true about very hedonistic extravagant ones. During the Celtic Tiger it seemed like every other man in Dublin was gay.

What the hell has this got to do with whether men should be allowed to go shirtless or not?

Or did they just dress "gay"....;)

This sweet middle class boy I know in his 30s told me when he visted Florence when he was 19 or 18 most of the men looked gay to him because of the way they were dressed....

I think now in general the Left claims to be gay-friendly but is secretly freaked out by homosexuals and the Right claims to be homophobic but is secretly interested....I mean a lot of people have said to me that Justin Barret looks gay...

One topic can flow into another....

From my travelling Ireland is very gay-friendly but also male shirtlessness is a much bigger deal here than in homophobic eastern europe...

As a female, and puzzled how this thread ended up discussing Gay men, I would like to answer the original question.

When is it okay for a guy to go shirlless?

If he is in his prime, slim, lightly tanned if white, then anytime he bloody well likes.

On a beach. Simple as that. Otherwise you look like a scumbag or a poser.
Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning......

This sunny morning driving around, I espied from behind my shades, two guys loading a truck,----beautiful tanned torsos....and beside them a guy on his mobile, sparkling white linen or cambric shirt.......

And, like old Satchmo, I thought to myself...what a wonderful world.....

In general.... if we are talking about Ireland, then never. Purely on asthetic grounds, the Irish physique is lacking. As a nation we have a lot of charm... but on a physical basis both Irish sex's are not exactly Brazillian beauties.

On the beach, its ok as its a prerequisite for tanning or before taking a dip, at almost all other venues it's associated with loutish / boorish behaviour, alcohol or other charming situations......

White?
Would you like them Black and Tanned? or do you just prefer whites?

I think it often looks sweet....I dont like musclely or too muscely guys though...Personally I find track suit bottoms in public more annoying...

I wonder how much are attitude to this question is picked up from our families...Actually a lot of working class boys have prudery forced into them because their parents dont want them looking "lumpen"...

Wonder about the point of this discussion though..... only it was a good to consider a random topic other than FF/FG/EK/RB/The eco-no-money /

Is this a profiling excercise?

I think she means that they shouldnt be pasty white...

Walking through an Irish park on the first hot day of summer can be an unpleasant experiance....;)
