AAuugg!! I got naked guyed today.

What is the deal with fitness centers? My wife and I got a free month membership, so we are trying it out again. Today I remembered why I quit going the first time.

I go into the locker room to get my bike bag and helmet and some dude comes around the corner with his towel over his shoulder. WTF, I do not want to see that. Why is it that even though there are dressing areas in front of the shower, guys think it is okay to walk an extra 100 ft to the locker. Then they just sit there for a while and try to carry on a conversation. If I want to see something naked I want a locker in the womens room. Even the worst of them is better than some dude. There is a hot tub and a steam room in the locker room too. Old guys hang out there. There is something seriously wrong with two or more guys sharing a hot tub naked.

I told my wife I am going to take some viagra and then go hang out in there. I wonder if it would stop some of them. Just give em a stare and a "Whats up." "How you doin."

Some are more comfortable with nudity than others.







Wanna go camping?

What Wordbiker said. Welcome to Finland, we go to sauna with complete strangers, full nekkid. It's no big deal. Mixed saunas are less common, and there people usually know each other already.

I don't even know where to start.

Are you offended someone would dare to be naked in a locker room?

Are you offended he would dare to be naked in front of you?

Don't want to see it? Avert your eyes. That's my basic strategy, "Oh, that guy's junk is out I don't think I'll look."

Srsly.

Don't worry man, I'm with ya here. *nods head*

I went to a gym once with a co worker and she told me that we were going into the hot tub, just the ladies.


When we arrived, I put on my suit and walked over there. My friend was nekkid and so were the age 60+ ladies in there!! And they had the jets and bubbles on!! They were saggily bobbin' all over the place!! OMG I felt so embarrassed being the only one with a suit on!

So I gracefully stepped into it (yes my suit was still on), pulling my knees close to me as to give people room....while trying to maintain a sense of uh..."grace"? When this lady leans over to talk to me and her floppy you-know-what floated over and slapped my knee. That was it. I was outta there.

Hahah, I remember taking a crammed shower with 60+ other naked guys in a boot camp. You get over your insecurities pretty quickly.

I take it the O.P never played sports in school.

What was creepy wasn't my fellow students it was our creepy gym coach always helping the towel guy hand out the towels right outside the shower.

Other cultures, naked is not a worry in some contexts. Even public Coed naked.
-Iceland
-Japan
..........Heck, I'm not gonna list them all.


Nakedness is seen but not noticed in these cultures though.

Mine too, but smaller.

I hear the OP, but after the first couple of trips to the gym you realize how silly you're being and get over it.

I played ball in school. I was in basic. Its not an insecurity issue. Its just something I don't want to see. I can understand going from the shower to the locker. But don't sit down and try to carry on a conversation. Cover your junk. And the hot tub thing is just not right. I work with about 60% ex-navy guys. They would/will do anything for the shock and awe effect. They would get the command to relax poopy suits and would try to see if they could finish their rounds with nothing on. And now, they even complain about getting naked guyed.

Sui,
Maybe we could trade. I'd much rather have a prune tit flop on me than seeing some old farts junk.

Me; 54, fit, straight, married. Not a problem.
Eyeballs are not magnetic, neither are genitals. You looked because you wanted to see. Quit or get over it. If you hadn't wanted to see, you wouldn't have looked.
Skip the Viagra, unless you are thinking of adopting a new lifestyle, or want a date.
