Locker Room Nudity, Have Things Changed?

Return to Discussions

Recently I joined a gym with a pool featuring a steam room and sauna room in the locker room. To my surprise, the showers were all individual stalls with a curtain. In the main locker area I noticed when many members were dressing, they kept wrapped in a towel. Only a few people were naked in the locker room. Then I observed most of the nude members were approximately over 40 years of age. When I entered the locker room from the pool, I took of my wet bathing suite and took a shower. I exited the shower nude and walked over to my locker to hang up my bathing suite. I then walked over to the steam room with towel in hand and entered the steam room naked. When I entered, there were two other members in there. One wearing shorts and the other wrapped in a towel. I relaxed there for a while feeling a comfortable but wondering why so many people were so covered up. I then exited the steam room after a while and walked across the hall still naked into a hot sauna room. I placed my towel on the bench to sit on and stretched out in the corner and enjoyed the heat. After several minutes alone, one person entered wrapped in a towel and hesitantly greeted me as if he was shocked that I was sitting there naked. A few minutes later another person entered the sauna room much to my shock fully clothed carrying a basketball and sat down. Again, I was the only naked person in the sauna but didn't care. In the main locker room there a few other nude people but they were in the minority. Has locker room nudity changed over the years?

The proper way to take a sauna is nude. You want yo sweet all the toxins out, not trap them.

Exactly!

I have found one of the last Saunas with a men only day. There are some nude and some with trunks which don't bother anyone. Trouble is its a Thursday and its 9-2pm so difficult to get there. All the same its nice to have the choice as so many council run places insist on mixed costumes to be worn. Wonder how long it will last but its a breath of fresh air.

Locker room nudity has changed over the years. I tend to find that the young guys are more self conscious than the older guys. But I had a good experience this week, I had a sauna after swimming (mixed area so swimmers stay on) and chatted to a woman I know and a guy I did not. Left to have a shower and after a while the other guy appeared. We were both comfortable walking and talking naked around the change room while getting ready to leave. Like others here I tend to leave dressing until the last minute and this guy was similar. Made for a good change.

Having said that the locker room now has showers with partitions with lockable doors. I shower with the door open as I don't care and I walk in and out putting on shampoo, conditioner and whatever to get the chlorine off. The shower has a 1 minute cycle to save water, auto cut off.

It has nothing to do with sexuality and everything to do with body image. We are constantly inundated with the idea of the "perfect body" and, for men, that tends to include the idea of larger than average genitalia.

Thats true. people not have different life style. Gym nowadays are so popular ( not like 30 years ago, not many gyms or people working out on a regular basis) I see it like a positive thing, people have improved physical appearance, better health and good nutrition habits. There are others with some issues due to body image but in society there will be always be the emotional welders people who is affected by everything.
