    Communal showers are common before the 1970's, as far as I know.

    By the time I attend high school, showers are no longer mandatory, not even after a sweaty PE class. Most boys would simply wipe off their sweat and change.

    My only experience of communal showers, that I can remember, wer in the change room of my university gym, and in the Y. Most guys would shower in their speedos or board shorts. And at YMCA, most guys shower naked.

    I was showering at the Y after a workout, and had an unwanted, hm..,boner. I was 20 at that time, and spontaneous erection is still quite common. I was lucky enough to be at one end of the shower, so that there were only other guys on my right. I kept turning my body to the left to conceal my boner, but the guy next to me kept staring at me, grinning. My thought was, is he cruising? That made me feel so uncomfortable. Well, actually I wasn't sure if he was even looking or grinning, cos I never look directly in his face. I felt so embarrassed. I never wanted to go to shower there again.

    It was sometime afterwards that I reminded myself it was normal and ok for a young guy to have a unwanated erection, and there was nothing to be embarrassed about I have since gone back and showered in the buff, many times, with no lack of eye candies.

    What is your experience in communal showers, and do you have embarrassing moments?

    I wouldn't mind showering next to you when you have one of those spontaneous erections. icon_twisted.gif

    I think there are several other threads on this topic. Some of them are quite long.

    Communal showers were the norm when I was in school, from elementary school through college. Although before 5th grade we did not shower after gym class, only before and after swimming. From then, on through college, it was all gang showers, and everyone showered after gym and after sports practice. College dorms also had communal showers. If you were going to fuck your girlfriend in the shower, you were supposed to have a friend guard the hallway door, but that didn't always happen.

    Healthy men do get boners in warm water.

    If I showered next to you, my erection wouldn't exactly be spontaneous...more like instantaneous. icon_biggrin.gif

    I only had one communal shower experience. It was at the hot springs in Alberta, and I was like 8 or 10 ish. My father was behind me on the other side of the huge shower room, with a bunch of guys showering in their speedos (it was the 70's.) The guy next to me, young tall lean and mr handsome, pulls down his speedo and his gigantic cock is right next to me. I looked up at his face and he was smiling. I think that might have been when I turned gay!

    That's when it would have been confirmed for me! LOL

    We had communal showers starting in 6th grade. Never saw it as a big deal. But nudity was never an issue with me. We all have the same parts guys. Your dick is just another piece of meat.

    My gym has communal showers. It's never been a problem for me, but then again I lift pretty hard these days...so I'm pretty preoccupied by the time I get to the showers with just managing to raise my arms to wash. The hot guys who may or may not be spontaneously chubbing next to me are the furthest thing from my mind. Well, usually.

    I'm legally blind without corrective lenses. When showers were required after PE in junior high, I still wore glasses and hadn't gotten contacts yet. Guess that was a good thing. I took off the glasses for the showers and couldn't see the other guys well. No accidental boners! icon_lol.gif

    I didn't have communal showers in junior high or high school. I was a track person but we didn't take showers. In college I always avoided taking showers for the fear of getting hard in the shower after work outs.

    boot camp.


    all anyone did was make gay jokes in the shower. i was honestly probably the least gay motherfucker in there (besides the other 2 gay guys) cuz i wasnt trying to draw attention to myself. everyone else was doin all but penetrating each other while calling each other fags which was both incredibly hot and completely annoying.

    Unfortunately, for some guys, that piece of meat is smaller than his peers'. icon_redface.gif

    I was one of those kids in high school who took PE during the summer so I wouldn't have to get naked and shower with the guys.

    I was a fool.

    Gang showers were what we had in my high school & college days. Huge tiled room, high ceilings & windows, numerous poles going floor to ceiling with five or six shower heads. Guys all standing fairly close to each other, and steam everywhere. Guys in those settings are usually all talking and laughing loudly - just having fun after a great work out. I remember the first time I ever saw guys brushing teeth, or shaving while showering. No chubs - - the mood just wasn't there. Lots of guys to secretly check out. I loved it. The only place to hook up sometimes - - by going to those showers at night. Memories are sweet!

    Military/bootcamp scenario is probably going to be a popular answer here. It was the first night after our platoon got picked up. We all had to strip, get in a line heel to toe.. actually, cock to crack.. and then walk in a single file line through the showers, get wet, lather up some soap, rinse, and walk out.. All without stopping. Yeah, didn't get clean much. icon_lol.gif

    I've heard of those. THANKFULLY we/I didn't have to experience that. But I set myself up for that, mentally, incase we/I did. Ick.

    Although if I was in a line cock to crack I'd be popping a boner.

    It was required for us to take showers in middle school and well in high school I didn't take PE cause I was in JROTC and we only did physical stuff like one month out of the year and it was cool so you really didn't sweat. I would shower cause I hated to be all sweaty and I never had a problem with communial showers. I got shit from the foot players at times but they were my friends and couple of them suspected I was gay but they were cool about it. One asshole that did try roughing me up had his ass handed to him by the linebackers... ah such a glorious day!

    I suspect communal showers are the number 1 thread topic (other than possibly rate the guy above you) in RJ archives.

    I grew up in communal showers .... elementary, junior high, senior high and all the stadiums and practice facilities where we played football. In College my fraternity had communal showers. My current gym has stalls but no doors so you are pretty open.

    The worst was my elementary and junior high school had the two poles in the center and all the shower heads came off two poles so you had to stand shoulder to shoulder. Lots of unintentional contact getting in and out of that situation.

    I only saw two boners from another guys in all those years. I haven't ever pop wood in one of these situations but I had a buddy in school that always waited until everyone else left to shower ...... I figured out why years laters.
