There is a controversy brewing at the London Olympics and it doesn't involve judges, steroids, or tanking matches (we're looking at you Badminton) - it involves bikinis.
Critics are claiming that not only are the women's beach volleyball uniforms too sexy, but that photographers seem to be focusing an inordinate number of their images on certain parts of the female anatomy.
Are the Olympics women's beach volleyball photos too sexy? That is the claim being made by some people who find that too many pictures of these female Olympians are filled with crotch shots and close-ups of women's derrieres in tight bikini bottoms, according to the Huffington Post just yesterday.
... Although female beach volleyball teams are no longer required to wear bikinis while competing in the Olympics, most of them chose to continue the tradition of skimpy two-piece swimsuits for the 2012 Olympics.
It should come as no surprise that the women's beach volleyball photos of competitors in bikinis come across as far sexier than photos of Olympians who chose to compete while fully clothed. While wearing a bikini, everything from hand signals to a congratulatory hug looks sexy. No one is blaming the women for being too sexy. The question is whether the photographers are gratuitously focusing on certain body parts or poses when they snap their photos.
So what do you think? Too sexy, too photographed, or not enough of either?
Is there such a thing as ‘too sexy’?
It is beach volleyball for goodness sake. What do you want, burkas?
Put them in sweatsuits and tell me how the ratings are then. Guys like hot women, and hot women like to show off. It’s probably a bunch of women slobs doing the majority of the whining.
I have always loved the sight of beautiful women but athletics competition is not the proper place to display nearly their entire body.
Why do you think anyone watches women’s beach volleyball?
Need more evidence to decide,please post pictures
In a word...
This thread is useless without pictures.
If anything, their bikini’s are way too big! I say reduce the size by 20%.
That is probably correct. If that is the only reason people watch is to see hot bodies then they should simply play nude.
No; but, I would like something a little closer to what the guys are wearing for "beach" volleyball. Honestly, who really thinks "beach" volleyball is a sport? Wasn't regular volleyball sufficient.
I loved an interview I saw with one of these gals where she was defending the costume she wears by saying she didn't think it was at all inappropriate. Half her butt is hanging out the back, this is not appropriate, and it is not a sport when what you are mainly talking about is the way the women LOOK in their "uniforms".
What an Ignorant Question who the hell cares as long as their suits are made in the USA ...... and of course they win ! Besides our women would be sexy in raincoats and slickers ! I’m a little biased .....
Let’s be serious here for a moment:
Women like to be looked at.
They don’t want more that that from most guys, but all women like to be looked at.
The two opponents of beach volleyball uniforms.
