Showering with other men...Gave me Legit Bromance friends

Return to Discussions

My co-workers know/knew I was gay. A year into my new job as a fitness coordinator, my straight male co-workers invited me to go camping with them for some sports camp weekend thing. I was beyond happy because it was the first time ever straight men invited me to hang out with them as one of the guys. LoL tons of different good and bad scenarios were constantly running through my head.

We all rented one big passenger van and headed up to the campground. It was (to me) so surreal to finally hear and be apart of the "locker room talk" that straight guys do so much of. The co-worker who invited me, Roy, he was the one who always asked my opinion or included me in the topic of discussion during the ride up there.

We arrived and there were a lot of men there to my surprise, only men. We found our designated spot and set up our tent. there were 6 of us altogether and we all shared one giant tent. I was nervous the whole time because I never felt comfortable around so many straight men before. There older men, young guys, male family units like dad and son uncles nephews cousins, fat, thin, bodybuilders, all kinds. In fact, the last time I was in this same sort of scenario I got jumped by 3 guys who clearly didn't like gay men.

Orientation started there were all kinds of different sports that were being held that weekend. Ryan selected for us, so we were in the volleyball, softball, flag football, and relay race swimming competitions. Yeah proud of my self cause I kicked ass in volleyball and flag football.
Later on that first evening after dinner. "We" decided to go shower and get to bed for tomorrows competitions. I WAS NERVOUS AF, cause the guys all stripped down and used their towel to cover up. I was so nervous because I had secretly liked Roy since i met him. I was the last one out of the tent and we walked to the showers. It was kinda full but the guys said let's just use this one (right at the entrance). At that moment I said fuck it and started showering.

It was the most amazing feeling being in the showers with other men and not feeling turned on or aroused. I finally felt relaxed. We talked about the competitions and joked around. Then Manuel says Hey Jayson, glad your not boned up brah we all laughed and i said well its easy when your friends are ugly and that was the ice breaker. everything was cool from then on.
Saturday Roy, was kinda ignoring me and i had no clue why. I asked the other guys why and they just told me to ask him, so i did. I asked him whats up with him and why he was ignoring me all day. He apologized and asked me to walk with him to the dining hall. He told me that he had this crazy feeling ever since we met. i asked why? well, 4 years ago his brother unexpectedly passed away and it devastated him. All his life, he and his brother did everything together. His brother was almost 2 years older than Roy and always looked out for him. This was odd because im younger than Roy by 2 years and we dont resemble each other at all. Then Roy says, his brother was gay. Which Roy didnt care at all about. He began to tell me that my mannerisms and my attitude were exactly like his brother. I asked Roy if it bothers him i can go. Roy then said no, i just want to hug you because it feels like my brother here.
I of course was gonna hug him, but the guys flew up out of nowhere and horsed around with us all the way to the dining hall, so I didnt hug him.
To shorten this up, Roy told all the guys months ago about how he feels like his brother is there with him when im around. We hit the showers and Roy was quiet and kinda just stood there. I hugged him and yeah the other boys and men kinda took notice.
When I hugged Roy it was full embrace. everything from feet to head was touching. To my amazement feeling his penis with mine didnt spark any sexual feelings. The hug lasted like 5/6 seconds and when i let go i just told I Love You Bro
Roy to this day has always been a true friend to me. and im blessed i have him in my life.

Having just joined this group, yours was the first thing I read. It's a marvellous story of how being honest and open can lead to much closer and fuller friendships. Thank you for sharing. I am delighted that you and Roy bonded so emotionally and especially that you formed a lasting friendship.

Your story is great and funny. You proved you are just one of the guys by saying you don't get hard when all your friends are ugly. Your openness moved me in three ways. First, it helps me realize that gay men have histories (like getting attacked) that make it awkward for them to hang with straight men, even when they are accepted. Second, it brought me in touch with some of my own sadness around a picture of my brother and me at age 2 (him) and 3 (me) where we both like like happy, healthy boys. That same year, he was in an accident which left him mentally handicapped. Each passing year, our intellectural span increased so that I took a father role, which my parents welcomed for practical reasons without explaining anything to me. What might have been. Lastly it affirms that there is only one important sexuality we need to differentiate as men among men, and that is that we are all male. Masculinity is brotherhood enough.

Oh wow, that's such a moving story. It must've been, really difficult for Roy, to be in that situation.
Well done to you, for giving him the hug, he so desperately needed X
