    I don't know if there is already a topic like this but today after taking a cardio Bootcamp class I went to use the sauna. And in the sauna were these two straight guys just sitting down. One of the guys - this built guy started a conversation about "trying to slim down or bulk up". Is it me or two guys talking about their bodies seem a little homoerotic. It was also annoying that these guys had to say the word "shiz" in every other sentence. I left before it got too annoying. Could be I just felt left out. I rarely make any buddies at the gym. What do you think?

    It can definitely be perceived as homoerotic, but that doesn't mean they're gay.

    There are plenty of straight people who are into their bodies and enjoy talking about them.

    I think you interrupted their no homo show and tell session where they critique each other's bodies. Strictly bro to bro. icon_wink.gif

    But yeah, I'd leave too if they said shiz a lot. Although that's not as bad as ending every sentence with 'dawg' or 'son'. *shudder*

    I don't understand straight guys! Most of the time they talk nonsense and they don't know how to have a proper conversation! It really just irked me. That's why at my gym, I assume everyone is straight. Again, I don't socialize at the gym.

    Even in a sauna, it's you - wishful thinking on your part.

    Maybe it's not that they are straight but just stupid.

    My best friend is a straight boy and we work out together and he would point out stuff about other guys (and girls) body while we worked. Talking about ripped that guys abs were, or look at those guns, whose on the juice and roiding with connect-the-dots acne on their back etc. He say's I'm a better chick magnet than a dog, or baby. Once broads he has a gay best friend it's like panties in the air home run.

    The whole gym experience is somewhat homoerotic. A bunch of guys sweating and grunting in one space...

    But, you have to remember that straight guys obsess about their bodies as well and while it might sound homoerotic, it's not that abnormal. I regularly walk into the locker room to see these two guys standing in front of the mirrors in their underwear flexing and complimenting each other.

    No idea, but I likey. icon_twisted.gif


    Tori Spelling's comedy about herself, "so noTORIous." Zachary Quinto played her gay assistant. This was the "Scientology" episode and Zachary is making out in the steam room with a clearly Tom Cruise-inspired character.

    It was a hilarious show. People don't give Tori enough credit for being funny as hell.

    EDIT: I see I wasn't the first to say this, mea culpa.

    I've never seen that at Defined Fitness here in Albuquerque.

    This, exactly. I think a lot of gay men get into wishful thinking mode when they see a good looking straight guy do or say something that in his mind is completely normal and natural, and we take it as sexual or insinuative. Tread lightly, or end up with a broken nose.

    There's nothing wrong with guys complimenting each other on their bodies; that's normal. I do start to get irritated though of hearing guys mess around overtly and still claim to be straight. It's like they use being straight as an excuse to mess around with guys without making them seem abnormal. They claim they're comfortable with themselves when they do this, but most of them are prob really insecure and just don't want to admit that they like guys. I don't envy them as it'll come back to really bite them later in life if they don't come to terms with themselves to please society, but it really is a shame.

    I realized I was gay because I liked looking at well built in shape guys. It isn't what makes me gay. What makes me gay is what I want to do with them.

    Most straights haven't studied up on working out and who knows, maybe you can offer some tips.

    Why are people shy in the gym? Gosh this country.

    For that reason I question the ads in the back of excersize magazines. I want to say hot male webcams and chat lines are for gay guys...but then I have met some vain-ass straight guys who love the voyeur shit. One of them strips for gay parties. Loves the attention and the bank. Loves his girlfriend of 8 years (soon to be fiance') even more.
