About College Dorm Showers...

For those of you who are still in college, and maybe those that just know the answer to this question, but are there still any colleges around that have the old traditional shower set-up? Like just the big open room with a bunch of shower heads, no curtains, paritions, or any kind of separation. Just a bunch of naked guys all in one room. I know at my Univ. those are non-existent and the new dorms being built don't even have community baths...all suite style. Oh..and name the college too...haha!

At the Wageningen University and Research-centre (WUR), students live in flats or in student houses, and share 1 shower, 1 washer and washing lines on a flat/house corridor. This is a normal 1 person shower.

The world is an imperfect place, screws fall out all the time

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign all dorms have individual shower stalls, as far as I know the only gang showers on campus are at either frats or YMCA type places but most of those are starting to install stalls in for privacy. I dont understand what the big deal is with guys not wanting to get naked, its just a dick.

My theory is that over the last couple decades, men have become more conscious of themselves as visual objects of desire. Add to that increasing consciousness that some of those lookers are also men, and you have a public hidie-weenie epidemic.

I find the penis an interesting thing. Walking around campus I look at guys and wonder how their penis looks. It's funny how no two are alike. So i wish we could get over this "hiding penis" epedimic. There are are a few places on this campus that have restrooms with urinals with no partitions. Mostly in our athletic facilities that have to accomodate a large number of people, but there are a few academic buildings that have them as well, and I make it a point to pee in them just so maybe I can catch a glance at another ding dong. LOL...i'm weird I know!

i dont think this is an issue of people being "uptight about male/male nudity". i think its an issue of not wanting to be forced to expose your dick to other people. particularly people who get off on seeing other peoples dicks without permission. i think i have the right to keep my situation to myself. plus the right not to have to look at someone elses.

Most dorms have had private showers for decades. I spent three of my undergraduate years in a dorm last renovated in the 1970s or even the 1960s, and it had shower stalls. The strikes against communal dorm showers include the presence of transgendered students (not as rare as you might think), the phenomenon of sexual harassment, diverse cultural practices governing nudity, handicapped accessibility, and basic space constraints (the typical bather's "personal space" is far less with partitions than without).

Too true, Matthew. Several decades ago it was assumed that gays were very rare ... today, with the success of the gay rights movement, middle America realizes that we don't inhabit nearly so "straight" a world after all. With mainstream straights -- many of whom remain very homophobic -- now realizing that the locker room is no straight bastion I don't think it's any surprise that restroom designs are increasingly isolating men from each other.

It's a conspiracy set forth by the GOP.

Besides who wants a communal shower? The older buildings at my college had floor bathrooms, but from what I heard, they had curtains and stalls. There were also hall baths that literally were rooms added to a big hallway in one of the old dorms. Three rooms shared a bath. They were pretty much private. I was so happy to get a suite dorm and at the room lottery, I homesteaded. All four years I lived in the two newest dorms... suite baths, carpeted rooms, air conditioning, and wonderful people.

I agree, in Europe; sex is like high speed internet as U.S being on dial-up. Is that a bad comparison/analogy? LOL.
Nah but in Europe some places have what looks like a fountain, cut in half, against the wall and few dudes are pissing at the same time. Just whip out do your thing and leave. Its nature, you gotta piss, do so. All their satellites tv channels have sex shows and porn during the evening, not late at night. Especially German channels.
Oh tracking off course. My college had about 6 rows of shower heads with about 5 in each row. No stalls, just lots of cold water and shrunk cocks. LOL. Except this one Phillipino dude, who was fuckin huge. Til then I did go along with the stereotype about Asians.

My college dorm had an open room for showering. Still does to this day. That seems to be the exception though from reading this thread. ..maybe it's an Alabama thing.

I lived in the dorm rooms at an HBCU known as the projects. They were closed down last year. The buildings looked a lot like "the projects" - lots of graffiti and poorly upkept. The showers were all open, but there was an unwritten rule that no one would walk in if someone was showering. I never saw 2 people in there at one time. Some of the really shy guys would wash themselves in the basin, and others would wear shorts.

I followed the unwritten rule because I didn't want to get beaten up by football players. I always wanted to take a peak though.

when I was in college in the early 70's there were showers in dorms with a large room with shower heads every few feet and toilets without partitions, and open urinals and lavatories with mirrors that allowed a view of everything in the large room.

I did not live in that dorm. My son lived in that dorm recently. They have completely changed the big room. There are private stalls for showering with a dressing area. The toilets are separate from the lavatories.

I was a bit modest in those days. Illnesses have caused me to lose a lot of that. For me, I woud rather shower with another man in an open shower room than take a dump in front of a whole bunch of guys in there some showering, some shaving, pissing and other shitting as well.

I think it is a shame that nudity in and of itself is looked upon as evil by many. The fact that some may look and be turned on is a fact of life. It happens when we are fully clothed as well.

My comback to those who use the I don't want people staring and getting sexaul kicks looking at my body. I don't have a great body.

"I would rather be "looked" at, then looked over." is a famous quote. I don't know who said it, but it fits. I would much rather be in the shower nude and have other men look and get aroused than to have them look and say what a freak, bet no human has ever found that guy sexxy.

As long as unwanted advances are not made, at age 55 I would be pleased to think that anyone male or female would think I had a sexxy body and got aroused. Looking in the mirror, I don't think I have anything to worry about. I will be "looked over."

My sister used to go to Claremont McKenna here in CA. The first time I went to visit her was like five years ago when I was 15. Anyway, her dorm had group showers. I was really thrown off because (while I guess it's sort of common for guys) I'd never showered with other girls before. In my High School we had partitions, and even though you were around naked girls in the locker room, being in the shower was completely different. And these weren't girls. These were women with much more developed bodies. I've never done anything with a girl, but I definitely lingered there longer than I needed to, watching the hot water run down their bodies while trying not to be too obvious. (And NO, my sister wasn't in the shower with me!!!)

I also heard that the guys' shower had the same setup. Don't know if they still do.
