水着で密着されて無反応でいられるかっ

I roughly translated to

"Having the swimsuit stuck so close, there's no way you don't have a reaction"

What does いられるかっ mean in this sentence? Any ideas?

I imagine the speaker is a man. He's saying "I can't stay clam/cool if she (who is in swimsuit) gets so close to me."

無反応でいられるかっ means "how can I stay cool?"

いられる is the potential form of いる (to be/to exist) and か is the question marker.

So the _____ + いられるか portion means, "how can I be ______".

    いられる(か) can be parsed as passive or potential. Considering the context it's more likely to be potential, which you translated correctly as "how can I (possibly) be _____"
