    While at the gym, I often see younger guys afraid to undress in front of others and usually put everything on under a towel. Some guys even shower in their underwear?
    I thought Men were getting more comfortable with their bodies.
    Is it just that younger guys are afraid to show their buddies their Penis?
    Have you noticed this?

    Not gonna deny that he has an awesome body, but he just does nothing for me. I think he's just has no personality in his scenes.

    I'm sure it just has to do with people's own levels of self-consciousness.
    I used to be super shy changing at the gym but now I could care less. I'm sure that has to do with feeling more comfortable with my body.

    The younger straight guys nowadays are fully aware of the preponderance of gay people in their midst, many of whom they can't even identify because many gay people blend in perfectly. Rather than take the risk of gay people staring and salivating at their dingdongs, many of these straight guys tend to cover up. It has nothing to do with body discomfort. It has more to do with their misconception that gay guys at the gym are always looking for an opportunity for cheap thrills and hetero-gay fantasies.

    Seriously another thread about this?

    Guys why does it matter to YOU if a guy is dressing or undressing with a towel on or not? Is it harming you in any way and why does it make you feel uncomfortable? The only reason why it is bothering you is probably because you want to check them out, maybe that's why they are doing it ever think of that?

    I change with a towel on because I don't feel comfortable showing my ass or dick in public and there are some pervy guys who sit in there waiting to check out any guy who gets naked, I'm already self conscious about my body don't need to be judged on if my ass is good or not too.

    In his scenes? What scenes? He's in porn?

    I'd like to do some research on this guy. Can you send me some links or names of some of his finer films?

    Thanks. icon_cool.gif

    I think that could be a big part of it, too -- the increasing realization that we gays are everywhere, but coupled with negative stereotypes about us.

    Incidentally, I have shirts, hats & jackets with the "We're Everywhere" logo on it, marketed to the gay community by a woman I know. Just one way our gay visibility increases all the time, and as more of us come out in public. The towel dance may indicate we still need to work on our image among straights, though.

    NOTE: She's closed her own store, and now sells through other outlets, her stuff increasingly difficult to find. If someone would be willing to buy her trademark rights I still think this brand has marketing potential.

    Well I hate to say and no disrespect to you but it's probably people as yourself noticing and staring that can make it uncomfortable :/

    I for one am completely comfortable with my body and at times can be somewhat of an exhibitionist but it does get annoying and a little creepy when you have people making it blatantly obvious with their stares and for me the gym is about getting down to business icon_smile.gif

    These guys you're noticing may simply feel the same way. Please give us a little privacy or use your peripheral ;) haha

    I used to think that guys with the hotter bodies were most shy about exhibiting themselves. The old trolls couldn't care less if someone looks at their junk. But there are exceptions to all of this. There are some guys with hot bodies who are seemingly unaware of the buzz they're creating. Other hot bodies lavish in the attention. Personally, if they want to see me naked -- in the locker room or shower -- that badly, go for it.

    I disagree. It's not that gay men are increasing in numbers just the number of out gay men. I know plenty of guys straight and GAY young and old who are using the towel not because of all gay men just the ones that are completed staring them down obviously as they change. The only guys who get mad about the towel are the ones trying to sneak a peak. The majority are changing with towels because they just are shy and don't care if someone is staring they just don't want to be naked. Get over it and stop staring.

    When I was a kid, swimming at the Y was done in the nude. Which is prolly why a lot of older men walk around naked in today's locker rooms, much to the horror of the younger generation.

    "Before the YMCA began to admit females in the early 1960s, swimming trunks were not even allowed in the pools, and high school swimming classes for boys sometimes had similar policies, citing the impracticality of providing and maintaining sanitary swimming gear and clogging swimming pools' filtration systems with lint fibers from the swimsuits. These practices were common because of the perception that there was nothing wrong or sexual about seeing members of the same gender in the nude, especially in these indoor contexts among equals in 'birthday suit uniform'. In some areas, this extended well into the early 1970s."

    Oh, this thread again.

    You know, it's not that we care whether or not someone is hiding their willy. It's that when these bizarre ultra-prudish fetishes start becoming common, we get a little worried that normal behavior is going to start being considered "obscene," or otherwise not tolerated. It has happened before.

    For example, normal gym shorts and swim suits (as opposed to the weird bloomers that are currently in fashion) are now considered "faggy" and inappropriate. In most parts of the US, you can get arrested for swimming nude. More and more, I hear "only fags" surf or sail in wetsuits without wearing bloomers over them. WTF?

    Sorry that I can't think of any better way to say it off hand: these young guys just need to man up.

    You can find him on Randy Blue. He goes by "Jeremy". His main problem is that he's a straight top, and gay for pay. His lack of passion is very obvious. However, focus on his (usually more aggressive) partner and you can get off watching his scenes.

    I call bullshit! icon_wink.gif


    and now back to my life:

    I think it is kind of odd. If you are that self-concious why dont you just go to the toilet stall to change. One time I saw one kid fall over because he was trying to change under one of the small towels that my gym provides. He ended up showing more than if he had just dropped drawers without any thought... but honestly on this topic ,I really don't care. I am at the gym to work out, not to get laid.... well, eventually get laid but not by picking someone up in the locker room. icon_lol.gif
