    Okay, yet another 'gym thread'....

    this one based on what happened to me tonight with out thinking about it.

    Got to the gym, it was the 'changeover (the 5 oclock crowd moving out) I was down to my boxers, was about to go pee, as I stepped away from my locker a nother guy (from teh shower, towel around his waist, barely covering a nice furry muscular body with..something making a nice bulge...so as he passed, I turned to 'glance' and with out being aware made a full 'turn around' as he went by...

    it was pretty obvious to anyone who saw it (like when an attractive woman walks all the way down the street and your head follows front AND back...

    the guy gave me a funny look, I just kept going..a bit embarrased to be 'obvious' but heck...
    ...

    anyone else have simillar stories?

    I've been told my head-turns looked like a scene from "The Exorcist" by another gay friend. But this was on the street, not the gym.

    Hasn't happened to me but I think the best thing is just to say, wow, great build. I think head on looks more honest then looking like your in shame

    Or maybe you shouldn't worry about it so much.

    If you're quick on your feet, you can also talk your way out of it if challenged -- "Aren't you _______ from _______? Oh, sorry, you look just like him."

    or

    "Aren't you ______? -- _______'s friend?"

    etc.

    Not really worried about it, I have gotten 'stares' at my cock when changing, in the shower/sauna my whole life. I think what got me was the 'spur of the moment' of it in a crowded locker room... Looking is one thing, turning completely around is another...

    (my favorite response was me walking to the shower with a towel around my neck, as I walked out of the locker room, 'swinging' I hear a low whistle...I glanced back and got 5 innocent looks...kinda funny

    I wouldn't sweat it. He was probably flattered more than offended even if he is completely straight. I catch guys checking me out all of the time in the gym and especially in the locker room, showers, steamroom and sauna. I love the attention, and feel nothing but flattered when it happens. It's when they stop looking that I'll get upset.

    I've been that guy who's been looked at twice in the locker room. And every guy,
    who's been ogled over, has a different perception on how they react to be looked at.

    I do know that many guys on this forum have no problem with a complimentary
    look from another guy. It can be flattering.

    I also know many of the guys on this forum, like me, do not like someone
    staring at a guy they saw naked/semi-naked, and then giving them
    creepy vibes on the gym floor, which radiate, "I've seen you naked,
    and I'm going to ogle you even more, while clothed."

    And please don't think that is directed towards you, instead it's
    just a reaction some men have on how a man may look them down
    in a locker room.

    The important thing is how you feel about nudity and naked men,
    and if other men perceive you as gay for looking, and how you react
    to all of this, as you look at men in the locker room.

    If it doesn't bother you, you won't think there's a problem
    with giving a respectful glance at a naked guy, however you
    probably would also respect another guy's privacy if he
    gives off the vibe that he doesn't want to be seen as ogled material.

    In other words you don't assert your desires in another
    man's comfort zone, when they weren't invited. Because if you
    wouldn't want another man to do it to you, since it made
    you feel bad, you wouldn't do it to another man, if it made
    them feel bad.

    But really, it should be harmless, as long as you look at it as
    a casual glance, (and not a grabby, assertive stance of 'I want your
    body',when the man did not invite that type of approach in a public
    locker room where one should feel safe naked/ semi-naked)
    and nothing more.

    i say as long as the guy wasn't offended, it's all good in the hood brah. now, if you scope someone out, and they tell you to stop, and you don't, then you deserve whatever happens.


    just to let you know brah, the "you" i was using was the general you, i wasn't singling you out, catman =)

    "fuck me if you if your name isn't farquar?" (or substitute anything equally
    unlikely)

    I am one of those 'I think of the GREAT retort......5 minutes later' kinda guys...


    I was at Home Depot recently (replacing some plants) this BIG burly stud in short shorts came walking by...amazing- thick hairy legs,big arms, stocky, furry (everything I like) nice package, big smile....and walks by (I am sure noticing my staring/lusting) and says "great plants", I was flabbergasted...

    of course 3 aisles later I thoguht of "great shorts"...grrrr...

    I even stopped to watch him walk past (and yes the view was just as good on the back side as the front)

    it happened to me once, a man around 55 was walking from shower to locker totaly naked, towel in his hand, and i was just coming from cardio workout to locker area, as he passed by me i turned to my left and glanced his dick flopping back and forth, followed him a couple of seconds, he then saw me looking and came back saying'' are you looking for sth'' I flushed and said '' errrrrr I am new here and looking for urinals'' and then he said ''they're on your right '' when I turned my head, the urinals were easily visible there
