    Maybe I am alone in thinking this but some of the things i see in the locker room I don't understand?

    For instance I can't tell you the number of times I have walked in to see some guy blowing drying his bush in front of the mirror and not just a quick run through either.

    The gym I go to has a small lockerroom. This make changing difficult when you got 5 or more guys in a bay. Everyone morning this guys douses his balls with baby powder to the point where a white cloud form above the bay.What's even more funny is it got to the point where other guys start coughing.

    The last thing i can't understand is why guys insist on sitting on the locker room benches bare ass. Common courtsey would tell you to throw a towel down on it first.There just somethiing about sitting on a bench nude knowing some other guys ass has been there minutes before.

    Maybe this only happens at the gym I go to.

    dwm,

    More than likely they are posing for your attention, for there is no good reason for those activities to be taking place.

    I suppose the response of stripping, grabbing your tackle and making like a Piper Cub propellor would be inappropriate?? Wouldn't it?

    I don't get the guys who will stand bare-assed at a locker room sink and shave. (Thankfully I've only seen guys shaving their faces this way, btw!) A bit of exhibitionism is fine, but I find this to be really strange behavior.

    And I'm with you, dwm -- I would *never* sit my bare buns anyplace in a gym without at least a towel or bathing suit between myself and the bench. Yuck!

    Steve ;)

    and shave. LOL.

    I dont want to put my dick down on a sink or a toilet.

    Hey if somebody want's to show their stuff at the sink, Hell,
    I'll saddle up beside them and shave too. A shave with a view.

    I shave naked at home, why not at the gym?
    Public bathing is just that it's public bathing, not public hiding my goods from view.

    Let me add another one... Why do some guys think it's okay to dry their genitals with a towel and strike up a conversation while they're flopping the one-eyed milkman all around? I don't mind chatting naked, but do you have to do that at the same time?

    This is really funny.

    I have a hot tub at home.
    We share it with our close friends all the time after dinner parties.
    Kids included.

    When we FINALLY get out, we're all there toweling and trying not to spill our wine and never think a thing about just standing there in a conversation while we are all getting our various parts dried off. Tits, balls, whatever! The girls all end up with towels around thier heads and the guys all end up naked carying the kids wrapped up in towels.

    Nobody seems a bit surprised that it's happening.

    Just my take on it.

    This is why I shave at home. I always shave nude before I get in the shower. On numerous occasions I have popped into the sink. Usually I just leave it as it is a losing battle due to my height and having a low sink. Let me tell you the feel of cold porcelin sink on your penis wakes you up provided you don't have a morning woody.But that's why I shave at home. If other guys want to shave nude that's thier deal. I could care less.I usually bypass the sinks anyway and go straight to the showers

    Would you object if they spoke to you while towelling their backs dry or drying their legs? Same thing. I'm not self-conscious about my body, and I'm not going to neglect drying certain body parts just because I'm talking to someone. After showering, I'm not putting my pants over my cock while it's still wet.

    I've got to agree with half the guys here. I'm not at all bothered by walking around the locker room nude and not bothered by anyone else doing the same thing.

    The same thing goes for drying off. If were talking, I wouldn't expect anyone to turn around or step away when it comes time for penis drying. It all seems pretty normal and routine. When it comes time to sitting down to put on your shoes, I think there is an unwritten law that you turn in such a way as to keep your face out of some other guys crotch.

    I shave at the gym every morning, more often than not in the nude. Rest assured, I'm not the only one. But, I don't put "it" on the sink or anything like that.

    I've got to say what seems wierd is blowing drying your pubes. I've never done that and I'ma hairy guy. I've never seen anyone else do it - ever. Now, that is ODD.

    Another pet peeve: anyone who obviously goes to the gym only to exercise his eyeballs. These are the guys you *never* see actually using any of the equipment, but they're always planted there under a showerhead wasting hundreds of gallons of water while giving their eyeballs a feverish workout.

    A degree of cruising is normal (and honestly, within limits, is flattering). Still, I don't go to the gym to make myself some freak's peep show ... I just feel like, go download some porn or hit a strip club if you're looking for titillation.

    There was a guy at my old gym in New York who would be in the locker room when I got to the gym to change into my workout clothes, and then he would be there when I was finished working out as well. I rarely ever saw him working out. He was always in the locker room. I didn't care, really, but one guy I used to workout with commented to him about it once and he just shrugged him off. I guess if you pay the membership you can use whatever facilities you like, but it was just strange to me.

    I don't have a problem if he's just drying off, but the excessive flopping of his dick while we're chatting isn't necessary. If your proud of what you got that's nice, but I don't need to see it dancing around when we're trying to have a conversation. Different strokes for different folks, I guess, but it's a pet peeve of mine.

    Between you and me, I'm not going to slip back into my regular civies without being totally bone dry, so to speak. After showers, it's only common to dry yourself off, unless you're a big fan of dampness in your clothes.

    However, I certainly wouldn't make it point to wave Mr Happy and his two nutty friends around, in particular if I'm around complete strangers. Just a simple fast dry, and on go my underwear and pants.

    As for a pet peeve, well, just why in the hell do some guys think it's appropriate to piss in the shower areas, especially when I'm not far away? It's one thing to do that in your own house but in a gym shower, come on!

    It’s a sad commentary, but my gym had to post signs asking people not to urinate or spit in the showers.

    As for sitting naked on a bench- it’s not my thing, but if you want to go for it. It’s no different than sitting on a toilet seat. (Actually the area I change in has no benches in it.)

    As for pet peeves of mine- it’s people with no self-restraint. This group includes people who follow me in from a swim, pick a shower across from me and blatantly stare as well as people who don’t just comment, but carry on. (A few weeks ago it was 2 guys 16-18 yrs old who just couldn’t seem to shut up about it. Though they were not talking to me they were talking about me and I was only about 6 feet away.)

    It started when one commented on the others being fairly large and that fellow said something along the lines of “yeah, but it’s not like that one” nodding in my direction. From there it just sort of continued. Nothing rude, and at first possibly even flattering, but after it went on for too long I just got friggin’ sick of it. I guess they are at the age where things are changing and discussions happen, but still, I just wanted to change, leave, and skip the running commentary.

    I gotta ask a question for you Str8 guys,
    When a guy walks around the locker room naked, does your eyes ever gravitate to his cock by accident?
    This happens to me sometimes and I feel so embaressed :blush: . I usually don't realize what happened till after the fact. I don't wanna give anyone the wrong signal ( e.g. "how bout me and you step into the steam room Big Boy ;) )

    Dude, don't worry about it. Checking out what a guy looks like - including his cock - doesn't make you gay or anything. But, if you stare at him and then follow him inot the steam room........
