Wednesday is my back day, (for those of you actually reading this part of the blog) and so I worked out my back today at the gym. But I went to a different gym where I can meet my trainer for an extra good workout (when we are able to get the same schedule going). Today at this other gym, I thought it was pretty interesting that a new sign had been posted on the steamroom door.
"Please be considerate of others by wearing shorts, a swimsuit, or towell while using the steamroom."
And this is in the bathroom section of the Men only locker room etc. Anyway, I wanted to ask if anyone has noticed more and more gyms have separate shower stalls now and/or signs asking for NO NUDITY in the steamroom. I'm not sure who i am not being-considerate-of by wearing a towell or swimsuit. I have noticed other gyms in OKC remodelling and installing stalls in the showers and taking out group showers. 2 now have taken out the center shower pole and instead of stalls with actually fewer showers.
Please tell me this prudeness is a case of living in the bible belt and not a trend all over. Perhaps its because I grew up with one large room group shower ever since 6th grade at my public school, so nudity in the locker room is just normal to me ( I mean that was before puberty or any ideas about guys sexually etc..) I think it should be a normal part of male bonding and growing up for guys, anyway jsut my opinion, sort of old school I guess.
I mean obviously now as an adult I know that guys are looking and noticing, including me with some guys, and probably some one is pissing off(making angry) some other guy who doesn't want to be stared at. But I couldn't help but think what is next, separate stalls for drying up or getting dressed? AFter I walked by that sign on the steamroom door, I went to my locker and towelled off just wondering if I was going to offend anyone who might walk in. After all, I am a really considerate guy. Promise.
