I think someone was filming me in the locker room

    [edit] This is an old thread from last year that someone dug out for some odd reason. I don't go to this gym anymore and I've moved on.

    Here it goes again where I try to feel comfortable enough to do the whole "change around other guys" thing, but then...

    I'm about to take off my towel and there's like 3 other guys around doing their own thing. One has and iPhone with headphones on and is supposedly talking to someone on it. I notice he keeps positioning the phone to make it still and the back-end of the iPhone perfectly aligned to theoretically focus on me. He says some benign shit like, "yeah send me your address," and then doesn't say anything for another 10 seconds and then says another sentence. I look (scowl) straight at him and he appears to not notice. I look in the mirror to see if the other side of the phone shows he's recording, but it's BLANK. In my attempt to move my shit to a different area, my towels slips off a little showing a butt cheek from the side view (yeah I know this is the part where half of you start masturbating to my words.)

    So the worst case scenario he gets to fap to some side cheek. In the best case scenario he's just talking to someone and I'm paranoid.

    What I want to know is can you record someone with the iPhone and have the screen appear blank (black)? I tried it with my iPhone 3Gs but the screen can't go blank while it's recording. However I don't know what the case is with the new (4th generation) iPhone. Also, is there an app that can keep an iPhone recording while the screen looks blank/black?

    If I were in a normal or bad mood I would have said outloud, "hey point that phone somewhere else" to embarass him. But I was in a good mood...shit like this ALWAYS happens to me in a good mood and by the time I figure out what to do (because my "good mood" state of mind that gives everyone the benefit of the doubt) it's too late and I start ruminating about it for hours, displacing my anger towards anyone who crosses my path.

    I just wanna hear some advice to calm down my nerves. Approaching this guy would result in a catastrophe because if he recorded me he'll deny it, and if he didn't record me he'll think I'm psychotic. I don't want to get involved with his secret recording escapades, I just don't want him to record me. I've dealt with someone who harassed me in the locker room 3 years ago and then went psychotic and flipped the story around to make me the perpetrator (followed by 3 years of me never being naked up until two weeks ago). So I've learned to try to ignore these things if it's just a one-time occurrence.

    damn jake, I just jizzed to your lone butt cheek.


    so hot.

    edit: there is a feature on iphones that makes it unviewable from any angle other than directly pointed at your face - the screen looks black. So yes, I guess your butt cheek may now be in the wank bank of some randomer.

    He might have something like this:

    I didn't see anything on the built-in video app that would blank the screen. There are some third party video apps, but I took a quick look and did not notice any feature like that.

    The iPhone could be Jailbroken which means it could be doing anything really.

    Not much you can do other than try not to obsess over it. You'll just end up driving yourself crazy. Granted, it's a short drive.

    I usually sit my ass down on the bench with my towel cover my doo da so I can pull my briefs up without fumbling...

    I'll give the benefit of the doubt that he's talking on the phone....However next time monitor his behavior....If he's doing the same thing, just tell the front desk and do it anonymously so you can be in the clear.


    You guys jizz way too quickly for a simple cheek flash!! icon_rolleyes.gif

    Oh I don't mind if eyes see. I do mind if iPhones record in a private setting where they shouldn't record. If I were at a nightclub and my ass was exposed I could care less who records it.

    I've been through something similar. About 3 years ago I was working out at a gym that had a gang shower. I thought I had noticed three different guys on three separate occasions looking at me in the shower. I just kind of brushed it off as to thinking that maybe I noticed them at the wrong time or something. Shit started getting weird when I started being approached. Asked if I had a boyfriend and one guy even started playing with himself while he was at the shower next to me. This same guy just happened to be at the locker 4 down from me. I was putting lotion on and powdering the nether regions when he showed up. First thing he did was pull out his phone and act like he was texting someone. But his camera was pointed directly at me. I asked him what the hell he was doing and he snapped his phone snapped his phone shut and said "nothing.". Still to this day I feel like he was taking pictures of me.

    I say you do some recon and talk to the guy a little bit. Act like a dudes dude but like you are interested a bit and see what he does. If he appears to be into you, push a little more and see if you can get him to admit something.

    I personally never got to confront the guy that I thought was photographing me. Had I had the chance I would have gone undercover and found out what he was all about. I just never saw him at my gym again.

    So yeah, I say do what you can to find out what this guy was doing and go from there. If you discover that he was actually documenting you, have his nasty self thrown out of your gym!

    I agree with 5ebastian - Report the guy to the front desk.

    I'm surprised that your gym allows cellphone use in the locker room. Equinox and my two current gyms only allow for cell use in the reception lobby because of exactly what you've described. There are always a few repeat creeps that the gym keeps an eye on.

    You're paying good money to work out and change in peace. Don't allow this guy to freak you out or waste your money.

    Jake-

    At our gym, there's a policy of not using phones in the locker room, in large part, due to concerns of invasion of privacy. The policy is posted for all to see.

    I would express your concern, however possibly incorrect, that the guy was filming you. Nevertheless, we all know that gyms do contain people that feel no remorse for invading someone's space by photographing or filming what they like. This happened at my own gym when I was at school and the wrestling team was the main victim (turns out it was one of the assistant coaches!!).

    Perhaps the thing to do is to express your concern about privacy, knowing that it is possible, to the management, and encourage them to actively seek to enact a policy of no-phones/iPhones in the locker room.

    Meanwhile, anybody, LGBT or straight, might do well to consider that even *if* they are simply having a phone call, or if they are simply checking their calendadrs, it may truly appear that they are recording, if not simply just downright inconsiderate of their actions.

    On the lighter side, and there is one, I believe - there will come a day when hardly anyone will take interest in our butts, etc at the gym or anywhere else. haha.

    Best regards,

    RPMSoccer

    Hmm, I use my iPhone at the gym to listen to music. I often still have it on with the earbuds in as I return to the locker room. Never thought anything of it. We have a lot of guys that take and make phone calls while in the locker room. There is no posted policy against it.

    Personally, if somebody thinks I'm attractive enough to record bully for them. I could really care or less. Not sure what you're so concerned about. It's not like none of us has ever seen a penis or an ass cheek before.

    I've never understood why so many guys are uptight about changing and or showering at the gym. Is it really that uncomfortable or embarrassing? I always figured they're worried they're gonna pop a boner or something. lol
