:oops: Just wanted a guys opinion on communal showering. I have never been naked in front of other guys before so I am kind of concerned about getting an erection in a communal shower when I am away on my gap year and people thinking I am gay.
What do guys do in these situations?
Have you ever got an erection in a communal shower?
How old were you when you had your first communal shower?
If you’ve had an erection in a communal shower what was the reaction from other guys around you?
Answers to any of these questions would be of great help and hopefully put my anxities to rest.
Don’t think you really need to worry about communal showers to be honest. Just relax- they are by no means likely to arouse you unless you are actually gay, in which case it might not really be suitable for you to shower in a communal shower anyway. We used to have communal showers after P.E. at school, they weren’t fun, but they weren’t bad, they were just showers. Of course, they can feel a little awkward, but at the end of the day it’s just a method of getting clean for you and everyone else in there! How many communal showers are you likely to come across anyway?
Ok, hope that helps,
you wont come across many communal showers!! yes showers will be shared - but not simultaneously!
as reg says, you wont get an erection unless you ARE gay. trust me… it would be hard to get a bonk on when you feel THAT awkward anyway.
actually i did just remember something. I went to japan when i was travelling, and communal showering and bathing is part of the culture completely. it was so so weird stepping into the steamy bath room. you sort of walk in completely starkers with a few japanese dudes staring at you, then you sit down on a little stool take a shower and get in the bath. you feel ace afterwards, but boy what a moment that is when you first walk in standing out like a sore thumb!
i get a hard on when ever i think abouy \lunny, but this doesn’t make me gay!!!
and no, i have never even seen a communal shower let alone used one on my travels.
some times you have to sing so make sure others no your in there if there aint a lock, but i happen to have the voice of an angel so all is good.
Would anyone take offence if I said that this thread made me laugh out loud? No? I’ll continue…
I had to do the whole communal thing once, and I wasn’t really that bothered about it. I was more worried about the OTHER guys there getting erections, to be honest! What a horrible thought…
I wouldn’t worry about it… :razz:
Hostels don’t have communal showering, so whatever you think ‘might’ happen doesn’t matter as you’ll be in a shower to yourself!
Don’t worry about it man.

To say I’m flattered would be an understatement. thanks!
hahaha, yer that prolly would be the ultimate worse place to get a boner
in school we had comunal showers- after rugby when every one is a bit hyper ne way, it used to end up that the last bloke in the shower would have his towel hidden!
When I was in Edinburgh recently, I was in the hostel annexe, and the guys shower was obvioulsy meant to be shared between two. 8O I just avoided showering at the same time as anybody else. And that was the first time I’d ever seen communal showers in a hostel - the closest I’d seen had curtains hiding a 3walled shower, and most seem to have proper cubicles.
hahahahaaa sorry, can’t help laughing at this thread, its so British!!
yes, I’m a Brit, but I’ve been living in Switzerland for the past 2 years. in all the swimming pools, gyms etc they have communal showers, some of them are unisex, even if they aren’t its not like there’s anything to hide behind. and saunas are always unisex and naked. i haven’t got the courage to go in one yet, as they are normally full of old men 8O
i know i’m a girl, so its a bit different, but communal showering never bothered me, or anyone i know here (guys included). i figure i’m not interested in staring at another woman’s body, so why should she be interested in staring at mine. and if she is it doesn’t really bother me either, if she thinks its worth looking at!!!!
Why is it different for a girl to have a communial shower compared to a guy?
girls can’t get erections
Yes, as a past (female) user of communal changing rooms and the like, you’d have to be a very strange person to get excited. Unless blokes have a wet towel fetish or something.
I love that you still feel the need to remind us of your female state of being, Salty!!
This thread makes me laugh more each time I read it.
this guy just has to be taking the piss. I dont believe that any bloke of 18 years old hasnt been naked in front of other blokes before. Its just b*llocks!
(er… excuse the pun)
