Yes it was nice to be nude with others and any could look.

RE: Locker Room Nudity, Have Things Changed?

A separate follow-up to my post above: This was a pretty remarkable occurrence that just happened this meeting. As I headed into the locker room at Planet Fitness, there was a sign notifying that there was a, "Female Working In Men's Locker Room." Whhaattt??, I thought. I proceeded in but didn't see any female in the locker area (only one other guy getting ready to work out) and I walked into the shower area, and... There she was, big as life, one of the female staffers had a cart full of cleaning supplies and was scrubbing the tiles in Shower #3. She had her back turned and earbuds in so she didn't see me as I turned to leave. Since I'm admittedly a bit of an exhibitionist my devious brain was already at work figuring out how I should play this unique situation to full advantage. Had there not been another guy, and more now coming in, I probably would've just bagged today's workout and gone right ahead and stripped nude and headed for the showers right away. However, that would've seemed a bit obvious to the others in the area, so I headed out to the gym floor. I quickly decided that today's workout would be very brief, so that maybe I could get a shower in while she was still in there working. I did only a couple quick sets on two machines before packing it in and headed back to the lockers. I had been noticing whether the sign was gone or not and yrs it was still there. I walked in and as per my custom immediately stripped nude and then opened my locker to get my towel and walked toward the showers, carrying it in my hand. As I entered the shower area I saw she was still in #3 and had her back turned, so she hadn't seen me. I thought about going to #4 and asking her if that one was OK to use, but vetoed the idea as possibly seeming too forward. I went to Shower #2 right beside where she was still scrubbing and turned on the water. She never turned around while I was getting the water on, etc. so I fit in and finished shaving and washing as quickly as possible, inhopes she wouldn't finish too soon. When I turned off my water I could still hear her scrubbing. Still dripping wet, I stepped out into the mat right next to her work area and reached for my towel. This dislodged the curtain she had hung on the hook and I caught it just as she looked up and saw me standing there nude. I apologized for the curtain and she said no problem and turned quickly back to her work. After that I went out to the locker area and figured I may as well continue my normal routine add if nothing were different. I set my stuff down on the counter by the mirror and started drying myself off. I was wondering if she would be making her exit anytime soon and would come walking through the locker area while I was still standing there nude, and so I was keeping an eye on the mirror. It was only a minute our do later that she did come walking out, but she walked straight toward me carrying a couple bottles in her hand. As she walked toward me she asked if either of these were mine? I said one was and reached out to take it from her, still nude from head to toe. Just as quickly she returned to the showers, trying to be as nonchalant as possible. As I proceeded with my morning ritual I still kept an eye on the mirror, and just before I had fine everything before finally getting dressed, I saw her once again emerge from the shower area and this time walked through the locker area and out to the gym. Her eyes were down when I spotted her, but I'm not so sure she didn't catch a quick glance at my bare backside just as she rounded the corner (?)After that, I got dressed. Just as I was about toput my coat on, one of the male staff came in and said, "I just wanted to let everyone knowthat Danielle is coming back in."I wondered to myself what they would have done, had I been nude at that time, if I had said, "It's OK by me."? Would she have come on in? Waited til I eventually got dressed? Or, would they have insisted I put some clothes on? Given what else had already transpired, I seriously doubt it would've been the latter. All I can say is, I'm sure glad it worked just the way it did!All that just to be seen naked by a female ?

And she'd probably seen it all before. She certainly took it in her
stride as she handed you the bottle. No big deal (for her)!! It's
not uncommon with female attendants working in a male locker room
or washroom. It's all part of the job.

Wow, wish I'd seen this one sooner, as I've certainly got opinions on the matter. I work out at Planet Fitness 4x per week in the mornings before work. The locker area is one big open room and the showers are 4 separate stalls with curtains. Opposite them are 3 changing stalls for shy people to change clothes. The minute I hit the locker area after my workout, I'm stripped fully nude, and only then do I open my locker and grab my towel and shaving kit, carrying both in my hand as I casually walk completely nude to the shower. After my shower I don't towel off since the floor is always very wet. I just use my hands to squeegee off excess water before walking to the blow dryer to dry off my shower supplies. Only after I'm back in the locker area do I toweloff, so I'm standing there completely nude for extended periods as some (fortunately not all) of the other guys do their towel dance to get dressed without being seen. I wonder if my casually nude presence makes them feel silly doing that? Because I usually spend a good ten minutes nude, putting on deodorant, lotion, etc, before finally starting to put my clothes on. I am so glad that here in Ohio, even though there are a lot of silly shy guys, at least no one ever gives me a dirty look or makes me feel uncomfortable for spending time nude in the locker room.

I don't know if you staying naked makes them feel silly but I do believe that staying naked might make other guys more relaxed about being naked themselves and it might inspire a few to actually do it. I behave the same way you do in my Planet Fitness locker room and I have seen a few guys way more relaxed with nudity now.

My thoughts exactly!!!I'm glad I'm not the only one to think this.
That story had nothing to do with being a nudist and everything to do with being an exhibitionist - ultimately, confirming what textiles think about nudists.

Feeling comfortable yourself encourages comfort in others.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. It just feels silly and uncomfortable to be covered up and clothed in a steam room and sauna. More often than not, I am the only naked person or one of few in the sauna and steam room or naked in general in the locker room. I am not parading around being exhibitionist, just being naked going to the shower and to the sauna and steam room. Sometimes I really feel wierd being naked and comfortable among so many clothed people in an environment where nudity should be the norm.

When I was in elementary school, the locker room had a large gang shower. Since everyone was required to play team sports and change back into your school clothes afterwards, everyone had to take a shower and we were all regularly naked together in the locker room and sometimes being kids would soap up one of the aisles besides the gang shower and play naked slip and slide. In High school the mens locker room also had a large gang shower room so everyone was also used to being naked amongst one another. I also encountered the same type of shower and locker room arrangement in college. Because of this, I have always known locker room nudity to be a common place.
Now when I go to the gymn, I am usually one of the few casually nude people in the locker room and in the sauna and steam room. I have found that if I go to the gymn in the morning when there are older people there, nudity in the locker room seems to be more commonplace. As the day goes on and the younger crowd comes in, the shift in nudity changes with only die hards like myself casually nude and comfortable. I guess thing have really changed over the years.

In Germany a couple of years ago; visited the sauna/steam rooms at my hotel in Frankfurt. I go to the locker room, put on the robe from my room, proceed to the sauna. There's a sign next to the door, in English & German..."Ladies night Monday 5-6pm, Gents night Tuesday 5-6pm"I'm trying to figure this out, as it was a Thursday.....I turn to hang up my robe and there's a black bikini on the hooks. I hang the robe, grab a towel, and walk into the sauna nude. To my surprise it's very big, 15x15ft and there are a dozen people in there, men, women, couples...all nude, sitting on towels.
Germany does it right.
