's posting today about Blue Collar Brigade
(joining his gym)... Interestingly enough, I just joined a local gym last week. I was a member a few years ago and loved working out. I'm not very fit and was worried about the attitude thing -- but everyone is generally nice and busy minding his or her own business working out. And man the eye candy is so nice! Half of the reason I rejoined was the locker room... :)
So anyway, just yesterday I was showering (in the communal shower) and this cute, larger, older guy was showering and I swear he started checking me out. I liked it, but suddenly I started to get so shy and scared (just as I started to get a hard on too!)... all those fantasies I've had, and now that it was actually happening I completely froze-up and didn't know what to do. I turned on the cold water and told myself I was crazy and it was nothing... Then I went to the urinal (three in a row no dividers, I went to the one on the right)... he came up to next to me (the center one) and made sure I could see all I wanted to see. Again -- I froze up, finished peeing and quickly high-tailed it out of there with my growing hard-on hiding behind my small towel (my gym provides smurf-sized towels). Anyway... that's my little story about the gym... Don't know what I'll do if this happens again -- suggestions anyone?
OH... and here's another interesting tidbit... My friend was a member of the same gym... we were talking about the locker rooms one night... she was so shocked that men walk around naked and have a communal shower. She said in the female locker room, the showers are separate stalls and that none of the women walk around naked. I was so sad to hear that for her -- although she's straight and she was actually happy it was that way. LOL Anyway, I told her that in the men's room, the guys walk around naked with their towels over their shoulder and I swear they are parading themselves around on purpose (even if not consciously). And I was really surprised to see how many of the guys shave their balls (and/or pubic hair)... I thought that only gay guys did that... how wrong I was -- or, how wrong I was about the gay population percentage.
