Of the ones I've been in over the years in the Dallas area, they were all large open tile rooms with shower fixtures scattered through out. Ages between 2 and 82.

It just amazes me, someone who has always showered in separate cubicles or curtained off shower stalls, how guys did this back then and no on batted an eyelid at just how close contact you would get with another guys ass.
I'm wondering how old you are, because I grew up with group showers, including "Bradley" showers (Four guys around one pole). It was just the norm. I fuckin loved it. I hate individual showers; they're totally pussified.

my Y has both. An open shower room where ppl can shower as a group as well as about twelve individual stalls with curtains. Although no one really uses the curtains as they cover nothing and there is really no point

Our Y has 2 branches. The old Y has group shower room with shower heads on the wall I think 8 or 10 heads. The newer branch (a failed spa that Y is renting) has single stale showers. I usually go the newer one because their natalus, hot tub, etc. is better. However, I think I like the old ones shower better but I get worried someone is going to turn me in for getting aroused. Our Y is a very traditional "Christian" organization so no chance of nude swimming.

I belong to a couple of gyms, and I work out at the Y sometimes. It recently underwent a massive renovation, and interestingly, the open gang style showers were left in tact. I prefer open showers, and I believe most the guys who work out there do also, gay or straight. There is no place to hide, if you're bashful, but maybe the shy guys just don't work out there.

What would be more "Christian" than brotherly love?
I love the typo: "Single STALE showers"! That just says it all. Single stalls are indeed, stale! Guys should shower together!

open gang showers at my Y. There is a larger gang shower area with 5 heads on each wall, 10 total. There is also an adjacent shower area with 3 heads. This is more of a disabled shower area since it has handrails and a 'shower chair' but no curtains!

If you ever visit Houston and can make it to the Downtown Y, go for it. There are two shower areas that are gang-style. I visit it whenever I'm in town.

I've never been in a woman's shower area. How do they do it?

I would imagine that YMCA's that are fairly established would have the gang style showers of another age. Most YMCA's now do not build new facilities but either borrow facilities at a school/college or they rent/lease/buy old gyms that have failed.

The last Y that I joined did have all male nude swimming every morning at 7:00 AM. You would go there and all of these elderly men would be in the pool. They were in great shape having worked out at the Y pool all those years. It was seen as the norm and was not erotic in the least. Not due to the men's ages but to the attitude. At firstI always wore a suit but they looked at me a bit odd. So I went nude. Great camaraderie there.

The first gym I ever went to was a YMCA. This was as a young fratpack-er. The shower was communal and I guess it spoiled me for life. All through high school and college and beyond, I love the communal shower...guys just hanging out. I agree with another poster about being in a stall with a shower curtain. Nothing worse than a shower curtain sticking to you as you try to clean up.

Our facilities here are rather new or at least have been updated recently. There are private stalls here. Wifey's there almost every day, but she showers at home, so don't know about the other side.

I'm amazed ( and frankly just a little skeptical) when I see there is nude swimming at the Y, esp nowadays. You sure you're not just sayin that to get us interested?

Good man! Let's destroy all the individual stalls in the country !
