The Fumigators in the locker room

    Okay, I don't care how bad you think you smell. I don't care if you haven't showered in weeks. I don't care if you are literally rotting from the inside: NO ONE NEEDS THAT MUCH COLOGNE.

    If you insist on using a full bottle, please take it out of the tiny room with no windows and go outside.

    I would have preferred the scent of dead and decaying animals to whatever it was that was sprayed in my gym's locker room this morning. I'm not even "sensitive" to these things and I could barely breathe.

    I hope every single man who uses that much cologne dies a virgin.

    Agree, heavy cologne can wait until outside the locker room. Another "favorite" of mine is the guy who take a second shower in talcum powder, creating a cloud that descends on everything, including onto my hair, clothes, the wooden dressing bench, my eyeglasses and up my nose. Fortunately fewer guys shower at the gym these days, so a lessening problem.

    It's very inconsiderate. A large percentage of the population has allergies. When someone puts that shit on, I literally have to leave the room. Luckily where I live, you're viewed as a douchebag if you wear cologne, so it rarely happens.

    As I live and work in a tropical climate, I'd see those who douse themselves with perfume more considerate than those not masking up their perspiration-soaked bodies. On a few occasions, after walking quite a distance to the subway, I noticed some people moving away from me in a crowded train. That could mean that I had become insensitive to the body odor I was emitting. (I usually dusted myself with lightly scented talc; I infrequently spray myself with diluted cologne only when I don't have time to use talc).

    I can understand that many people are allergic to chemically formulated perfumes. But when you are in Southeast Asia, the BO is intensified many times in humid and hot weather. Hence the locals prefer the smell of imitation Ralph Polo.

    Not a fan of cologne/perfume at all. But I don't think it's bad compared to people with body odor.

    Dear Certain Gay Men,
    Smelling like 5 day old road kill on a hot desert highway is NOT "masculine" at all. It's just bad hygiene. It also explains why you're single.

    paz_daddy saidwhat cracks me up are the guys that put on cologne right before they work out. icon_lol.gif why???? who the fuck goes to workout smelling sexy or fuckable? icon_confused.gif you're supposed to come to the gym to stink. if you ain't stinking, you aren't working out hard enough.


    I'd like to share that once, during my unemployed hiatus, I would go to the local gym around noon. The only other person there usually was a very muscle-defined man. And although I was always trying to be on the other side of the room from him (he'd frequent the leg press machine and barbell area, while I, the cable station). I could smell his super strong BO as we worked out in a fan-ventilated room in humid Southeast Asia! I can assure you it wasn't pleasant. Even the gym owner/clerk got out of the room. I suppose I didn't sweat up a storm like he did because I'd use antiperspirant before using this gym. (That was when I didn't know antiperspirants aren't good for me). icon_biggrin.gif
