    Well, I wasint the locker room at my gym today getting ready for a workout when one man came out of showers butt naked and was just parading around the room. This is a gym and this kind of things happens all the time, however, this time I started to get an erection.

    Now, I know I'm not gay, I love everything about women, their body, their smell,I don't fantasize about men or find them attractive in that way or anything like that, I want to marry and have children, I enjoy getting with girls on night outs etc etc.

    I'm looking for sensible answers here from people who have had or know off similar experiences etc because I really was shocked at my penis.

    There's not always an obvious explanantion for getting an errection. It was probably just the naked situation. If you know what you like and it's women why worry. Just shrug it off and forget about it.

    Then you're not gay. You just got hard because you saw another guy's dick. Men are very, very, visual and sometimes the stimulus gets you hard.

    If you ride a horse and get hard are into fucking horses?
    If you ride the washing machine are you into fucking machines?
    If you like watching yourself stroke your own cock does that mean you want to marry yourself?

    No to all of them!

    Erections just happen, you can't always control them. It's a fact of male life and it doesn't mean a thing. What and who you're attracted to determines your sexuality, not what your dick does.

    Yes I think for sure you must be about one quarter of one per cent gay but don't worry it's normal and it's not enough to have to change anything on your profile :smile:
    man seriously don't worry about it it doesnt mean anything really

    It happens, though most men wouldn't be honest and open enough to admit that perhaps a good looking body can be a stimulis, even if you don't want to have that kind of encounter.

    That's why men's magazines have men on the cover, and women's magazines have the women on the cover. It's selling the visual attractive aspects of people. (Not talking Playboy or Playgirl, ok?)

    It is common for young men to get excited at the mere fact of being naked (esp. in public) Even if you were a bit gay, why worry?:wink:

    lol, as I was looking back at my post I was thinking the exact same thing "maybe that needs a little editing after all", but thanks to the people who responded.

    It was just kind of a shock and felt really really weird to me, I have nothing agasint being gay in the slightest, it was just that I knew I wasn't. It probably was nothing, maybe I was just in an overly sexual mood that anything would get me up...even janice dickinson.

    I do believe the phrase is "Buck Naked".

    I also believe you need to change that 100&#37; straight thing too! lol!!!!!

    Maybe do a little experimentation?

    You probably do need to know if you are gay or not...

    The question, I think, is would you have wanted to explore more had you been alone with him? No big deal, man.

    Or maybe he should relax and not get worked up about labelling himself just to suit societie's pigeon-holeing attitude.

    pengman - no worries mate. Nothing to worry about. That happened to me once when I was in college. I was 22, had just been for a 12 mile run and then a work out and I was the only one in the locker room and stripped down and headed to the showers and I don't know what happened, but out of nowhere I was hard as granite. And of course that's when some other guy walked in. I didn't know what to do and I was very embarrassed and just grabbed my towel and headed to the sauna with towel on to calm down. Really, it has happened to every guy at some point in his life. It does NOT make you gay. Now prove it and go have sex with some hot chick. lol!

    I don't believe sensual people can be easily stuck into iron-clad categories. I love men, but have a little experience with women, too. I'm proud of that. So don't be afraid if you appreciate both genders...

    I would say that you aren't gay. It very well could have been just that you were naked and it happened, and it could have been a boredom woody, or just completely random in some other way, erections happen, they can't be stopped.

    Yeah, I agree with most people. I think that anything that a guy's brain can relate to sex, it will. And so when you saw a penis you probaly thought sex and then got hard. I don't think it's a big deal. You're not gay. I mean, maybe if next time you see him in the gym you get a hardon and you start having emotional feelings for him, I'd say you might be gay, but not from what you've described.

    It's the same reason why when a guy watches porn, he wants to see some big cock getting rubbed, sucked and banged. There's a comedian (the name slips my mind) who says this makes a guy gay, and if you think about it - maybe it does! I don't know, but looking at another man's cock can make you rise or retract in my experience!

    The theory a lot of people hold is that everyone is bisexual at some level. This is what Freud said. The extension of this theory is that this is why men are homophobic, because they realize that they are bisexual -- and they're scared by it. So, there is a chance that you may haev a very, very small attraction to your own gender; just as everyone does, according to this theory.

    That theory aside, I read a while ago that in a certain monkey family in Africa it is common for the whole group of male monkeys to get an erection when they see another male has an erection -- because they interpret that this means there is an in-heat female in the area.

    Probably the most sensible answer is: there could be many different reasons, and no one knows for sure.

    For what it's worth, most likely all self-identified straight men have experienced, at least once, what you have -- whether they admit to it or not.

    Hey, pengman, lots of good feedback for you here. Basically, why worry about it, unless it was embarrassing. Does it happen often though, and is it awkward? That could be tough, I can see that.

    pengman sounds almost completely straight to me ... but I have to agree with henry miller's account of freud's theory and so as I suggested in my earlier post you might both want to change your percentages to 99.75% straight and 0.25% gay except that that very pedantic percentage is not available and isnt really worth the bother anyway because it is so slight ...
