    How much of an issue is privacy when you are stripping down or using the showers? Does it bother you to know guy may/are sizing you up even in a non sexual way or do you just chalk it up to part of the locker room experience?

    Ah, and old topic with a new person. Don't let it bother you, do not be afraid. You know who you are, and if they look with intent, be flattered. Just say no.

    it kind of feels good to have at least one place in society that it's "right" and "normal" to get naked and let the privates be not-so-private around other men.

    I joined a gym officially today, and it was nice to shower afterwards. Personally, I don't feel that insecure with it. All the guys in there have a dick, various sizes etc. Best to just get used to it and enjoy the gym experience.

    Is that why you wear reflective sun glasses?
    Don't they get soaked?

    Better to be looked over than over-looked

    Not an issue at all for me.

    Nope, I'm flattered. It's when they stop looking that I worry.

    Yes. I love the freedom of being nude in the LR around your own gender. It's quite liberating.

    yah, another topic, like cut vs. uncut, that has been done a million times and could have be avoided by looking at the topics....

    anyways...it's a locker room. it's meant for peoples for be naked. why is it an issue?

    Its not an issue. Everyone in the locker room has the same equipment I have, some bigger, some smaller. It's a dick. Unless someone is trying to poke me with theirs, or trying to grab mine, there's no problem. Looking never hurt anything. If it bothers you, you have a self image issue that you need to deal with. Going to the gym is a good way to do that.

    I am usually so damn sore and tired and begging for the sauna that I don't give a damn who is looking or why.

    I do wish my gym had open showers though. The cubes really don't give you enough room to move around and if you don't like one shower head it's a pain to pack-up and move over to another one. I also think they're harder to keep clean. I like tiled showers, not these plastic phone booths.

    some guys at my gym really want every guy in the locker room to look. it seems like its the highlight of their day or something. i think it's funny.

    i change and get naked and think it's cool when other guys do because it shows a sense of maturity, among other things.

    it IS really obvious when guys sneak a peek. i wonder if they think it's not noticeable. i don't care; just think it's funny.

    Does not bother me at all. Let them stare if they wish. The locker room is there for me to change and store my clothes. And I do exactly that.

    I have no issues, I think it is kind of cool when other guys sneak a peek and check me out, I also like to sneak a peek at them also. What I find funny is the younger dudes who are afraid to let it hang out, they wrap in a towel and try to put their undies on, or wear their shorts in the shower or sauna, I don't get it.

    It's a non-issue...and flattering to know that I feel good and exude the feeling to others.

    My gym has open showers, and sometimes I notice glances. It's no big deal usually, just part of the locker room situation. However, there are definitely times when the glances linger too long and are aggressive. I always respond by staring the guy down and several times I've gotten verbal about it. It pissed me off because it's unwelcome. But outside of that, just part of life.

    modesty is really a dead issue in the locker room. I have a freind that I work out with about 3 times a week, and he will not even pee in the public bathrooms, he waits till he gets home to shower or anything.
    As for staring, I get stared at sometimes, yes even skinny nerds get looks, lol, but I am flattered. I only felt very uneasy once when i was like 15 and i complained and come to find out, i was not the first guy to complain and the man was banned. He was married and a minister at a large NYC church.
