When speedos ruled the world...


...this guy was king.

Sophie Merven isn't afraid to say what we're all thinking:
"My dad was (apparently) uber hot when he was young. My mom found him on a random tropical Mauritian beach wearing nothing but a pink sarong as a skirt. Seriously. She said she fell in love with his blond locks then and there. In this photo he is sailing his small boat in his natal island of Mauritius. In the 80s and 90s everyone at my school thought he was McGyver, but here he is clearly the dude from the '80s version of The Blue Lagoon," says Sophie.

Counterintuitive fact: A man who's not afraid to wear a skirt or a pair of panties as a swimsuit is a real man.

Are you experienced? He is.


Bertie Bowen sent this picture of her mom to MMSTI and but I think her dad deserved a post in his own right. "The Jimi Hendrix look-a-like is my Pa, Glen Bowen. I love my parent's matching high-waisted jeans." Glen cultivated his look in the 70's at boutiques in his native London. But this photo practically explodes with the electric guitar version of the Star-Spangled Banner.
