    When in the gym I am surrounded by gorgeous men who are naked and look stunning. If I were to see these people on the net surfing for porn, I would instantly have a stiffy I could play baseball with.

    So why is it that when I am in a gym, it just does not come on? I don't WANT it to come on, but I am surprised that it doesn't.

    Anyone else experience this or know why this is?icon_confused.gif

    They may be hot, but you are probably in a "work" frame of mind. Go work out , get it done, get out. Work vs play.

    For me, I notice someone hot at the gym sometimes, but I am too focused to worry much about it. I file it for later. .when I get home. icon_twisted.gif

    Maybe you don't feel comfortable in the showers and an erection may caue you some embarrassment, so it's harder to get it ... after all it's not just a mechanical thing , brain is resposable for it too ..

    In such an environment, your body is conscious of its vulnerability and your brain is in a low-grade Fight or Flight Syndrome. Getting sexually aroused wouldnt help either fighting or flighting. So you dont get aroused.

    The same holds for guys who cant pee in public...the body doesnt want you pissing in your shoes if you have to make a sudden break for it...or put up your dukes.

    THE QUESTION SHOULD BE:

    WHY DO GAY/BI GUYS HAVE ERECTIONS IN THE GYM????

    SERIOUSLY? NEXT TIME LOOK AROUNDicon_rolleyes.gif; HOT SWEATY MALE BODIES, GORGEUS GUYS BREATHING HEAVILY, TIGHT MUSCULAR BUTTSicon_wink.gif....SOUNDS LIKE A PORNFILM, WORKS FOR ME EVERYTIME, BUT PERHAPS FOR SOME GUYS IT'S THE FEAR OF GETTING INTO EMBARRASSING SITUATIONS THAT PREVENTS EL CAPITANO FROM RISING HIS HEAD. MY PROBLEM IS USUALLY THE OPPOSITE- I HAVE SOMETIMES TROUBLE HIDING A BONER EVEN AT WORK, WEARING SCRUBS!icon_eek.gif SOMETIMES I THINK I'D SURVIVE MY DAILY GYMSESSIONS WITH MUCH LESS EMBARRASSING icon_redface.gifSITUATIONS IF I DUCKTAPED MY EAGER HOSE TO MY LEG....BUT IT WOULD LOOK STRANGE IN THE SHOWERS THO...HILARIOUS EVEN. icon_lol.gif

    I have the exact same problem. I never get an erection in the showers...even when someone is standing their rubbing their cock, it still doesn't happen. I always assumed that my blood was working in my other muscles...i.e. the ones I came to work out and so the penis wasn't a priority. Make sense?

    You know it is funny, I have gone to the gym many times and have only had a few reactions to getting sort of erect in the shower, and that is usually after a very intense workout.

    Some times guys go into the shower area and just linger around, that does nothing for me whatsoever....and those are mostly the guys that don't work out, head straight for the sauna or showers, and you can catch them playing with themselves occasionaly if you pay them any attention at all. That sicks me out !!! Go to a adult movie theatre or something if you want that sort of action.

    I go to the gym to work out mainly for fitness and some times stress release. I am not there to pick anyone up. I have made some friends there as well who sometimes give me advice, help me improve my technique, and I have received appraissal as well from them on my progress. My few "reactions" occured after a strong work out and my endorphins were high. I was chatting with a friend of mine and I noticed he was getting there too so it just happened. We didn't make a big deal about it, we continued to chat and shower. Another time it just Popped up. No reason, it just happened. Most of the time I am flaccid, not because I didn't work out enough, but it just hangs there. I do admire the many physiques I have seen at the gym, I have a very ectomorphic metabolism, so I am far from Bodybuilder type, but it some times gives me the extra push to work harder.

    Just my 2 cents worth... like to hear from other guys as well. Hit me up some time if you want.

    Cheers -

    They do at The Berkeley YMCA. I get self conscious and can't throw a bone, but I wish I could, I sure enjoy looking at them!icon_cool.gif

    I've spent my life concentrating hard not to pop a bone.

    Sometimes I do, and have to face the wall until I can get it to subside.

    Actually though, I had a fun experience in the gym showers a few months back, and I went with it. Had a guy opposite me in the shower, and we both put on a show for each other, waving out hard wood around for a bit. Juvenile, I know, but sort of made the shower time more fun than usual.

    Oh, but I do have to share that with buddies when was 14 or 15, at a local University rec center, after going there to swim, I popped a stiffy in the showers that only a kid of that age could pop---super hard. I couldn't get that thing to subside no matter what I did. I showered standing against the wall a long time, still, couldn't get that boner to go down. I was mordified. I went up and delivered my speedo shorts (mandatory to wear their shorts in the pool area) and had a towel returned to me through the window. I was glad the college aged kid, who seemed so old and mature, didn't seem to notice---what a cool guy, cause he coudln't have heleped notice, and he saved me the embarrassment that I felt intensely.

    Other than that, I've not had too many issues with hardons in the shower.

    I left the shower one day heading to my locker and had a 20 something follow me when he saw me, ranting and raving about my pectorals and muscles. He sat there in my space as I dried myself. He was nearly worshipful and asking me about my routine. I began to pop a boner there, and man, that put me in panic mode---I was putting up a real "straight" front, and a boner compromised all of that. Hehe.

    Now, I'm more playful in the showers, if the right situation arises, and if need be, if someone is begging for a show and I'm in the mood to give one, I can pop some good wood, but it's rare this happens.

    Hmmm my erection is dependant on my mood, when I go to gym I do it for the sol purpose to build, not be social, not hook up... If anything seeing a hot guy makes me workout harder, my competitive nature and all. But after my exercises I relax and see where the mood takes me
