I've been talking to someone who says that they masturbate in a public shower. I told them that I thought that was socially wrong. I could care less if you masturbate (we all do), but in a public forum? On a floor where others will walk? Where others will be in there naked? There are two main times where I have used public gang showers - high school sports and the military. It was always a big deal not only to not masturbate, but also to not get hard or even look at other guys junk. Now, I understand that both of these settings are fairly strictly heterosexual where it is not cool to look around but I'm talking specifically about masturbation here.. I cannot fathom the idea that it is now socially acceptable for one to masturbate in a public forum such as gang shower. To me it isn't even a gay/straight thing, but rather a common courtesy type thing. People come into a public shower to get clean and having someone masturbate next to you is just not normal. If someone wants to jerk off with you... or jerk you off... then you will generally take it into another more private forum - again, speaking of a general public place here (see below). But, maybe I am wrong. Maybe I am totally askew due to my percentage or something. Please understand that I am not talking about going to a bath house or your own personal shower and masturbating. I am talking more about going to high school and that shower. Or, going to work out at the local gym and masturbating in that shower. So, I am asking you, am I really that far off in my thinking? Have I really not visited a public gang shower lately to know that the etiquette has changed to allow masturbation? Are there times where masturbation in a public shower OK - with nobody there or people there? Certain demographics that are more OK with this than others? Etc.
