    My impression had been that younger guys are getting shyer in the locker room of Y's & health clubs these days. They won't shower, or will shower with swim suits on, wear suits in the male-only hot tub or sauna, and some won't completely strip down at their lockers.

    Yet a gay friend of mine, who's a 7-day-a-week Y hound, tells me stories of guys casually walking around the locker room with hardons jutting out, or being fully erect in the open gang showers, sauna, hot tub and so forth. He claims nobody seems to notice or care. I'm nearly 60, and guys were embarrassed if that happened when I was younger, implying they might be "queer," and you'd be frowned upon and criticized.

    (I recently posted an Army exception to that in the topic "Hottest part of the male body?")

    This is a group that oughta know what's acceptable at the gym today. I haven't seen any of this gym wood my gay friend has -- think it's true? Can I allow myself to pop a boner in the straight shower now and not have to worry?

    I wouldn't suggest it either... I'm certainly not embarassed of my body nor my erection I just don't believe that it is appropriate in the locker room. That being said, I always walk around naked in the locker room and just about anywhere else I can.

    Oh, honey! Oh honey, oh honey!...OH, HONEY!

    Your gay friend must go to a GAY gym because that is the only type of gym that one: you would want to walk around erect, and two: anyone would look and not complain to the service desk.

    In a mixed preference setting, I couldn't conceive of this. For tact sake, no straight man wants to see your dick hard in a locker room, not bath house , setting. At the predominately straight gyms, this is what the locker rooms are for: showering, changing, and getting out. If you've got time to walk around with it hard: you're liable to get side swiped because everyone else (including me) wants to get dressed and get somewhere they can be more comfortable.

    However, in gyms that are predominately GAY or everyone has a common link like they all belong to the same organization or play on the same sports team, you are liable to see a lot more horse play including some that have to do with guys showing their privates off and the like. Basically, I contribute this to the comfort level being higher; everyone knows eachother, likes eachother; there is no rogue brovada or plain unfamiliarity floating around.

    You can see this a lot here because there are team gyms and private gyms where everyone knows eachother, but chain gyms like 24 hour or something, you've got no idea who is gonna be waltzin around meaning (what level of intelligence or what meds they are on) so my advice is to mind your p's and q's around strangers.

    My advice, again, is to get familiar with your surroundings and act accordingly.

    Nope, not gay, it was at 2 Y branches in the same Upper Midwest city, that I also used, sometimes with him. But I never saw any of this, hence my skepticism.

    He did go about 10 times as often as me, however, at different times, so it's at least possible he would see more things than I did.

    And one time with him in the gang shower, while shaving his face, he suddenly started shaving his balls quite openly. Told me lots of other guys did it, too. I hadn't ever seen that either, and I went back to my locker ASAP, leaving him there.

    So far the replies are running against showing shower stiffies.

    PS: Thanks for the clips, the second one was very interesting.

    As previously stated club or team venues are more likely settings to see this happening, I have a team mate who shaves his nuts regularly after our hockey games in the gang shower, his GF hates the mess at home. Semi wood occurs as well with the occasionaly "slap and tickle" happening under the guise of fraternal straight bonding. Nothing unusual for sports teams. While I have never witnessed it, a friend who made the NHL reported team mates at that level jacking off to completion in the locker room.

    For any using a "public" shower in a chain gym I would think popping wood to be an inappropriate activity.

    Isn't this a bit obsessive, when you have to dig up posts that are 5-years dead to criticize?

    I almost always end up getting a fatty or fully erect in the locker room after a workout, especially if it a good workout and kinda pumped after.

    It's kinda hard to hide myself in a towel. sometimes pretty obvious, but I don't think anyone's really hanging out with binoculars looking for erections.

    Just gets awkward when a guy is changing next to you or makes small talk when you have a boner. icon_smile.gif) but oh well.

    Might be fun if i wasn't the only one sporting wood...icon_lol.gif
