Naked in Locker Rooms: Voices from the past 1a

naked guys in locker rooms 12/19/2003 6:01AM


Something has been bugging me for quite some time, but I can't exactly bring up the subject with the culprits: What's with all the guys who resist wearing towels in the locker rooms of athletic clubs? I'm using the plural because, though I only belong to one club, I assume the phenomenon is widespread. I'm not a prude, but there's something really creepy about flabby 60-year-olds standing shaving/gabbing/strolling etc. buck naked when they could easily wrap towels around their waists.

My theory, for what it's worth, is that many of these people have not participated in high school or college athletics, thereby learning a few important things about locker room etiquette. I ran track and xc in college not long ago, and everybody wore towels except, naturally, in the shower. There's just no reason to display your garbage to the world if you don't have to.

If you're one of the no-towel types, I'd like to hear why you do it.

naked guy in the locker room who invades my space and insists and getting far to close to me or others is truly disgusting. serious social violation.

  Personally I wear a towel all the time except for   the few seconds I don't have to while getting    dressed or getting in the shower, but that is only    because Flagpole Willy cares about everyone   and  their feelings.

 Don't want everyone else feeling badly about  their shortcomings you know.




mmm, naked 60 yr olds
RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/19/2003 6:07AM - in reply to You Can't Be Serious


People that age grew up with different norms for locker room behavior. When they were kids they actually showered after gym class. I doubt it was because they lack your vast experience as an athlete; if anything, people who never spent time in locker rooms tend to cower in corners.

Besides, if I haven't showered yet, I don't wrap my towel around my sweaty body. Why get the towel dirty to avoid offending your sexual insecurities?

It was easy to wrap a towel around myself when I was a young runner. When you grow a gut, you can't keep the damn towel on, and it just falls on the floor anyway.

RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/19/2003 7:11AM - in reply to You Can't Be Serious


This is an interesting viewpoint. I am a twenty-something and in college and in high school, the people who wore towels, of which I once was, were looked upon with contempt and disgust. I think the rationale was that those individuals had very small penises and were hiding them or else they were afraid of revealing their erections it was presumed they might be having (although I am not sure a towel would do much to hide an erection, that was the logic used by teenagers). Before long, I ditched the towel and found it didn't really bother me or anyone else. I personally am not offended by any person who goes without a towel nor do I scoff at those who carry one. It seems pretty irrelevant. I don't know what social norms are expected in a place like a locker room, but I either don't know them or I ignore them.

On an interesting side note, I went to a female friends apartment last night to spend some time there, and upon entering, I found one of them completely nude in her shower--natually--and one of her other roommates standing there combing her hair in the same bathroom with the door wide open. Being a gentleman, I chose not to stand there and gawk but I did see enough to figure out that neither girl appeared disconcerted or bothered by the one naked female. I guess this means girls, or at least these two, don't appear to have the same hangup guys do.

S&V, Next time you visit your friends please bring a digital camera and snap a shot to share with us all. It might not be the gentlemanly thing to do, but it would be the manly/humanitarian thing to do (unless you friend's naked showering friend is a sorry sight. If that is the case, I feel for you).

In college, I always enjoyed the freedom of wandering around the locker room with my johnson unleashed. The locker room was sort of a johnson-free zone-- our private space, where we could crank up some tunes after a workout and let things swing.... Now there were guys who would do things like wear sandles into the shower... these dudes usually whipped their towels tightly around their small packages immediately upon exiting, usually after a nervous 20 second shower. These guys usually snuck in an extra half mile on the warmdown to hit their log goal, and usually had to get back to their dorm right away to study engineering. They let loose maybe once per season, getting ridiculously trashed at team parties.

Other guys took it too far, sitting around reading shit, going from locker to locker talking trash, laying out on benches, and in one memorable case, eating a tuna fish sandwich, completely buck naked, almost luxuriating in their manhood. Most of these guys did pretty well with the ladies, as I recall, and often drank heavily on weeknights at local townie bars. They sometimes initiated interesting discussions, such as the relative merits of attending class commando-style, their favorite "nookie pants," and their perception of various ladies' preferences with regard to respective johnsons.

There was rarely any open package-checking, but once in a while, some big swinging dick would declare himself king of the johnsons and call out a particular dude for a faceoff. I don't recall any of these competitions ever getting off the ground, but there was generally money wagered, sides chosen up and lots of poiontless dick comments fired back and forth.

I fell somewhere in between, feeling pity for the dudes who were ashamed of their action, but wishing some of these other guys would pack it in from time to time. Nowadays, I basically change quickly in small stalls, usually in a hurry. I miss the locker room atmosphere, but upon reflection, its probably not because of the johnsons.



Now I'm in my 30's and haven't wandered around naked in front of other guys in a while, except for a trip to Europe, but that's different. I remember a July 4th barbecue with some bare-assed antics too, but there were chicks there, so I guess that doesn't count either. I'd welcome an old-timers day, I suppose, although I'd probably be more turned off by the guts involved, including my own,than anything else. I don't know what it means, but as I write this from my office, I bet my colleagues outside would be shocked by my bare-assed history and would think I was a bit freewheeling, which makes me somehow feel like I'm in the wrong job.

Sometimes I'll come out of the shower in my place and walk around without a towel, and then realize that the curtains are open and my neighbors can probably see. I'll feel a momentary embarassment and go for the blinds, but then I'll say the hell with it, this is my place and my johnson, so what do I care?

You really WAX reminiscent about your old locker room.

I have no problems with dudes walking around bare ass nekid. The ones that get me are those who bring their junk a little too close to you and/or others with changing and conversing. There are just certain levels of proper locker room decorum.

rediculous... my god... if you cannot stand to see the guys' packages then don't look if you truely don't want. just cuz you see a guys wang doesn't mean that you're gay or that they are trying to make people uncomforatable by having it out. Our team walks around naked all the time and we just have a good laugh about it and don't think about it anymore. it makes for some good jokes and what not. get over your fear of being thought of as gay and rock out with your cock out.

RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/19/2003 9:25AM - in reply to You Can't Be Serious


naked communal showers make for more socially well-adjusted men. there is truly nothing to hide in this life, if not the johnson. if girls' teams had communal showers, maybe they wouldn't be such headcases. or maybe it would be worse.





Ex-Ivy
RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/19/2003 9:32AM - in reply to laissez-faire


I agree... its sort of an equalizer. I notice that at communal poools in Europe.

Women would probably feel less insecure and uptight about their bodies if they hung out in locker room settings with lots of naked chicks. (Or maybe I just like the idea of it).

yea, if they are naked 60 something year old men or women for that manner, it is an "old timer" thing... when they were our age (late teens and twenties) they walked around their locker rooms naked. the women on the other hand during that era probably did not, but I don't know. I don't know, but that is what my grandfather said and he is 80 and his dad taught him to wear a towel around the locker room because it was rude to have your junk exposed.

Judging from the lenght of running "shorts" that most of you young guys weart ... none of this surprises me. All of you guys are riddled with "queer fear" ... get over it.


skylon
RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/19/2003 12:25PM - in reply to runr


Two points. One, we are living in the age when wearing shorts that are splits is akin to running around naked, and will get you beat up in places--people somehow got real uptight about these things, and we are in a real uptight time period in general. Two, maybe us older dudes are just more comfortable about nudity and our lumpy bodies in general--I mean, like I CARE what some 22 year old kid thinks of me? On the flipside, that 22 year old is still pretty damn close to the age when everything he does, think, or says is judged by his kiddie peers, and he better err on the safe side and cover up or else. But, I do agree about the thing about "personal space"--I don't want some dude's sweat on me, so watch where you're swinging that thing...lol.

RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/19/2003 1:38PM - in reply to skylon


Well, at risk of unleashing Seinfeld "it shrinks?" jokes, I'm not looking all that manly after a long run. Or in the shower immediately after, for that matter. If I didn't wear a towel, I'd have to try to explain to all the non-runner gym rats that "it is all that it appears to be, and more!" despite, um, present post-run shrinkage. What do swimmers do?

RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/19/2003 4:13PM - in reply to average johnson


average johnson,

The solution to your problem in to do the yank of confidence before exiting the shower or dropping your towel completely. This will no only make you feel better and more confident than ever, it will make everyone else around you feel less sorry for you and your shriveled, undersized cock.



I'm a grower not a shower
RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/31/2004 11:01PM - in reply to foot long schlong


I have a similar problem. Not braggin but Ive got a nine incher but I swear the f***er shrinks to like 2, 2 1/2 inches when Im not turned on. No lying. I dont have to be cold or anything, I just hang poorly when flacid. I sometimes think I should sport a woody in the shower just one time so as to shut up the snickers from teammates who dont know Im so well endowed but this would have its downsides too cause I aint a homo. Anyone else have such a big differential between the flacid and arouse states.

Nahhh man it's cool to show off your package in the locker room. In fact, our team does a naked 400 every week. However, when that happens, girls come out and run too to see what all the fuss is about.

When I was a freshman in high school we were in the go-between thing between guys and girls locker rooms and two naked guys (football players0 walked in totally naked. It was realy gross one was my brother's best friend they were seniors and we were only freshman. Guys who walk around naked in locker rooms must be gay, me and my friends could never look at them again without laughing.

I like to shower in the locker room and keep my eye out for guys that are obviously uncomfortable with nakedness, then i put my towel over my shoulders and walk up to them and talk to them. even better if they are sitting on the bench, puts their eyeline right at ball height. during the convo they are all squirmy and uncomfortable and dont know where to look, its great, everyone who is comfortable in the locker room should do this.
The origonal poster of this thread is one of those guys who wears his towel, then pulls his whitey tighties up underneath it. how sad.

When I was in high school (last year), there was no such thing as a personal space bubble. The borderline between "funny because it's gay" and "bad because it's actually gay" was never reached. I was sitting on the floor tying my shoes one day and a naked teammate ran up to me and wiped his sweaty asscrack across my head like you would scan a credit card. Ah, the good old days.

Your theory is wrong, back in the day we weren't so insecure as you obviously are and someone wearing a towel would have been rather strange. Certainly putting a towel on to go to the shower after XC or Rugby when you're covered in mud would have been crazy! Communal showering was usually a surprise when first encountered at about 12yo but everyone got over it fairly rapidly, clearly you didn't. The fact that you refer to it as 'garbage' clearly indicates a problem and I suggest counselling.

If you're one of the no-towel types, I'd like to hear why you do it.

Because showering naked is normal and being naked in a locker room is nothing to get hung up about!

During my first couple years at UB we (the mens team) had an unspoken rule about nakedness in the locker room. There was none! With only one exception though. The biggest, baddest distance runner on the team (George) could go without the fig leave. Why? Because if you said anything to him about his exposer he would jump you, and wrestle you to the ground buck naked! Very disturbing!




mormons are funny
RE: naked guys in locker rooms 12/20/2003 8:48AM - in reply to Buffalo Alumni


the mormons at my high school wear towels around them WHEN showering in the locker rooms. it's kinda funny, cuz then they grab their clothes and go into the bathroom stalls w/ the locks on them and change into their clothes so no one can see them w/ their clothes off. I on the other hand take off everything and eat breakfast while taking my shower. it feels good, and i don't care if they see me, it's not like they've never seen something like it before. Plus after 8 miles at 5 AM, I don't really care what you think about me.

I think an earlier poster hit it on the head. I'm 51. when I was in Junior High, we were told we all had to shower after gym class. Now I see kids on the high school teams go into stalls to change into their shorts. When my dad brought me to the Y for the first time, I couldn't believe everyone swam naked. Same thing at the old North End Boys Club.

And yes, how about a little title nine enforcement on the girls shower situation. Why they had individual stalls and we had the prison camp setting can't be good for their self image.

It is truly weird that today's youth are so sexually liberated, promiscuous at a very young age, and yet so hung up on their bodies. Splain that to me Lucy.

We had a guy on the team and I will never forgett this. He would do the above exactly. Walk up to a freshmen who was very uncomfortable. He would walk up towel on head put lean up against the lockers with his junk a fott from there head and say "listen John a couple of upper classman have been getting together, we have been talking (we think you are a hard worker, we really like your attitude, all serious stuff and finish with)we all think you have got a really nice cock. It was hilarious. The reaction was priceless.
