1. The women's team has to wear bikini outfits

Why not the men?

27. Yeah, I believe those uniforms would cause female viewership to launch (for lack of a better term).

The fact is, our puritanical society is saturated with sex sells undertones on almost everything.

28. Uh huh. As I said below, the ancient Greeks made you do this shit naked,

Because they didnt have any illusions about what it was they were looking at an honoring...and not in a bad way. Top athletes are in a physical condition that other humans want to fuck, period end of sentence. Its wired Into our Primate Lizard Brains, and we would do ourselves a good service if we were willing to acknowledge such.

(Weve never needed one before, but now I think we need
a Sexy-time emoji lol).

37. Succinctly put, Volaris. Our lizard brains rule. But our hyper-inflated prefrontal wants to be

in charge. It ain't going to happen when sex, hunger, survival, fear, etc. hold sway.

39. No, it isnt. And I suspect we would do much better as an advanced society

If we were to acknowledge such, and build in acceptable outlets for that Lizard Energy.

Like they do in Amsterdam (and mostly Las Vegas).

40. Money is in the mix also.

My definition of a true friend?

If you are strapped to a table in a room and a person who you view as a friend is offered boatloads of money and lots of great sex with dream mates to plunge a knife into you and kill you. If the person instead use the knife to cut you loose and then walk out of the room with you, that would be a true friend worth holding onto through thick and thin for life.

38. I'll guess you mean: It isn't covering all of the parts.

Of course there's nothing more titillating (or equivalent) than knowing a forbidden body part might escape its clothy bonds.

. . . . unconstricted your ass crack.

10. And with every tug transferring sand on hand to under the bikini bottom making it that much more

uncomfortable.

23. Brava!

Lots of people kinda joking about this kind of thing but I think it is an actual serious issue.

Now if the athletes make their own decision about uniforms then anything goes. Even nudity would not offend me.

11. i was watching some track today...

and thinking, don't the women feel silly that they are literally running in a pair of french cut panties?

and after they ran every one of them was pulling the wedgie out of their crack. it is absurd.

This woman won not only with shorts covering her upper thighs but her midriff is covered too. I guess the extra ounce of material she was runnnig with didn't slow her down too much. Oh, and she won a gold.

?width=982&height=726&auto=webp&quality=75

I assume the athletes aren't REQUIRED to wear the panties since Hassan (the Dutch runner in the photo) wasn't wearing them, but I wonder if they feel pressured too? If they really want to dress that way that is absolutely their business and no one else's, but I find it hard to believe there aren't some runners a little more shy that might rather have more clothing on.

As for the beach volleyball... yeah, that is terrible. They ARE forced to dress like that and I think that is wrong and I won't watch it. Let people dress however they want.

Because at least nobody had any silly repressed puritan illusions about how Eye Candy was actually supposed to work.

13. Both Should Wear Shorts

Wearing actual beachwear is a silly tradition.
These people aren't beach goers messing around in their swimsuits.
They're serious, world class athletes.
Make it about the sport, not titillation.

21. I Know

The women's team getting fined for wearing shorts.
That's my point.
It's an athletic contest, not a beauty pageant. (And, I loathe the latter)

33. Especially since they're playing in sand.

The ideal seems like what the women's team who broke the rules wore: tight "biker" shorts - lycra to just above the knee seems like the most protective so sand doesn't get into crevices.

Olympics used to be played in the nude, so if anything they’re overdressed.
