Having your jock strap or other workout clothes stolen at the gym

    My Memorial Day visit to the gym was eventful - at least to me and to one other guy . . . the one who STOLE MY SWEATY JOCKSTRAP after my workout while I was in the shower! I've heard of this happening, particularly at my far-more-gay gym in Chicago, but I've been here in Providence over six months and haven't heard of it.

    I realize my bad habit of leaving my sweat-soaked gym clothes out on a bench while I shower put me in the situation of being susceptible to it. I've been thinking about it for the past few hours, and there's no reason I couldn't wrap my kit up and put it in my gym bag before I get in the shower . . . and that may be a behavior improvement I adopt go-forward.

    But . . . WTF?! Should I be skeeved-out or should I be complimented that some guy wanted my sweaty jock?

    Has this happened to you . . . or do you know someone who's done it or who does it?

    I would be pissed at first, but then later feel quite flattered.

    +1 on flattered. But, not too often. I spend $15-$19 a pair.

    (I don't really have a sweat smell. But, there was one guy... I could have bottled that..and make the eventual dumping even more painful.)

    a good solution is to have your gym bag there and a note saying "these things cost money. if you want my sweaty jocks, we can make an arrangement" and still pack the stuff away properly.

    Move. Serial killers love to collect trophies to remind them of their victims.

    If you did this in front of somebody else's locker who needed the bench space there's a good chance he just dumped it in the trash. Some guys do this with their clothes not just when they shower but when they steam and sauna. Maybe someone just couldn't take it anymore.

    Eh, I'll think of that next time I see someone walking around with tongs and a hazmat suit.

    Wait, I think that's a fetish I read about somewhere.

    How do you know it was stolen?

    Maybe someone just picked it up and threw it in the trash. icon_neutral.gif

    I've had a whole suit stolen from the locker room at my old gym.
    Just pulled it out of my locker to jump in the shower came back and my almost brand new Armani suit was missing. icon_sad.gif
    Since that day ive never left anything laying around of value and either have it locked in my locker or on me.

    Take care of your belongings and they wont just go "missing", your lucky it was only a jock.

    There are sickos that give gay folks, or even just regular folks, a bad name.

    Pretty pathetic, isn't it?

    I've had my weightlifting gloves stolen from the bottom of my bed, and when I set them on the bench in the locker room when I peed. The former was clearly a fetish nut. The latter was a generic thief, that I got in the face of, and he denied it, but, he did it. I finally said "If you really want my stinky, sweaty, half worn out gloves, you can have them, but, you're a fucking dirt bag."

    There are some real sickos...to be sure.

    I think the sickest I've run into is the skat creeps. A guy offered me $400 to poop on a glass table while he beat his meat. I turned him down. I told him, "Sorry dude, I just dropped a big one."

    We had a couple of kids a while back breaking lockers open at LA Fitness. We finally caught them. They were stereotypical young...b****...guys. That's how stereotypes develop, of course.

    Jocks used to be mandatory in physical education classes, decades before UnderArmour, free balling, and designer underwear. LOL.

    On a side note: if you've ever been a Real Jock, and played ice hockey, football, or baseball, you clearly understand the value of a jock and cup, especially is you were a catcher, defenseman, or receiver.

    I've had my shoes stolen at the gym recently. I forgot them, came back the next day expecting to pick them up at the counter from the lost & found bin, but they weren't there.
    To even out the balance though, I once left my iPhone in the locker room for 2 hours and it was exactly where I left it. icon_biggrin.gif

    Isn't that from the kill not from the stalking? LOL

    Precisely! I may be a bottom, but "the boys" need to be well taken care of!

    My son had that happen in a totally respectable gym in Charlotte. He was pissed off when he told me and I just burst out laughing. It wasn't thrown out by anyone. It was stolen for exactly the reason you guess. And yes, just laugh it off, think of it as a complement, and start locking it up as you say. Not all of us can know there's some guy out there with out jockstrap over his face beating off to our image! But yes, stop wearing a jock in the gym. Free-ball it!
