Several years ago I went to visit my cousin and we went to the YMCA where he was a member. After the rough workout he put me through with the weight machines, I was looking forward to relaxing in the whirlpool. We were in the locker room and I changed into my shorts like I always do at my local Bally's ready to go to the wet area, where at Bally's it is coed and nudity is not allowed. But this being the Y, My cousin (who was more muscularly built) stripped down nude and went to the wet area. After seeing this, I immediately got over my bashfullness and stripped naked, and went with him to the whirlpool, steam room, sauna and showers fully nude. It was a funny feeling at first because he never saw me naked before, but frankly it felt great and liberating going without clothes and I also felt a sense of bonding with my cousin, too. Now just to let you know I'm a straight guy. My questions are is full nudity like this at the YMCA common and do you get a great liberating feeling going nude with friends and relatives at the YMCA like I did, and when they first see you nude how do they react?
