    Anyone know of a gym in the Miami- Fort Lauderdale area that has "open" showers (communal/gang style) instead of private ones?

    No, not a gang shower for more than 1. My gym, which is 95% gay and gay-owned, has stall showers with opaque doors. They're very snug inside and I don't like them, cramped & claustrophobic, and a few times I thought I smelled urine. icon_razz.gif

    Instead I use a large open room with 1 shower head they also have there, intended for the handicapped. Well, I'm handicapped, though not in a wheelchair, just have a cane, and I do use its grab bars for when I wash my legs and feet. It's partly open to view from the locker room, but I don't mind, having often just come out of the steam room naked anyway. I come from an older generation that isn't hung up on being naked in front of other men.

    intentsmen suggested a bathhouse instead of a conventional gym, and if you're gonna be in the Fort Lauderdale area for long you might consider The Clubs - Fort Lauderdale (many just shorten it to Club Lauderdale). They actually have a large and modern gym there, plus I think the gang shower you want.

    I've also seen guys working out in just jocks there, but of course with towels on the equipment, unlike the promo pic above.

    Thanks for the info- I am looking for this at a more conventional gym. I am surprised more gyms in the area aren't like this. I guess it's more popular in other parts of the country and in older gyms.

    Just be aware it's not cheap, a preemo place, for guys with money. You're gonna hafta pay a hefty membership fee, and then a daily locker fee. For a couple-day visit it may not be cost effective. Call ahead and find out.

    I have no clue why would anyone who onws a gay gym have an open shower unless its gay sauna. Regular gyms with open showers are full of straight guys who aren't expecting u to suck their dicks. Yes there are places in this world where two guys can shower naked together without hitting on each other. My highschool was like that...I wasn't out and I remember straight guys wouldn't like to shower when the gay guy was showering...mainly cause "the gay guy" was really effeminate. But of course they knew there were more gay guys they just wouldn't care about the masculine looking ones. I have no clue why their brain was wired that way.

    This. Although I might not have said it as ...erm, non-tactfully? icon_twisted.gif

    I went to a particular bath years ago with some friends on a lark just to see what all the hubbub was about; and unlike the promo pics, showing young, ripped guys, it was mostly guys old as, and older than my dad.

    In horrific shape.

    Not a good visual for retention...

    I have to wonder if this is the norm?

    Sadly, i think it is

    I mean think about it, all the places and sites online always show young, fit, ripped, or ripped and big guys, in reality its not like that

    That site or phone line for gays talking with other gays for phone sex, i forgot what the site is, but they always show hot guys, i mean come on, do you think the guys actually talking to each other are hot in reality if thats their form of getting off?

    It gets attention, showing hot guys. Why do you think there are so many fake profiles online?

    Ah, phone sex,

    I think I saw an advert for that on the Cartoon Network adult swim block once, kind of a WTF moment... and naturally, the two dudes looked an awful lot like those Abercrombie Fitch twins from a few years ago.

    BUT, that reminds me of this clever little gem:

    I went to Club Dallas twice last year and during the daytime it was gross but around 3-4 am I did come across some hot guys. It was on a Saturday night.

    Personally I don't dig those types of places. You've either got closeted married men, or closeted guys period who go there to get off in the dark.
