LasersHurt: How they manage 3 or 4 without it being just dick to dick in there eludes me.


Dude, you don't stand face to face. You stand in a line, face to back, and then when the person up front is sufficiently wet enough to soap up, he steps off to one side, flattens himself (chest first) against the shower wall, and sidles along it until he has reached the back of the line. Then the second person steps up and repeats the process, then the third. It's basically an assembly line approach that mitigates any dick to dick contact. Because, let's be serious, that would be a little gay.

Cythraul: What about dick to ass contact?


Well, I mean, come on. There might be some minor brushing of penis against buttock every now and then, but that's more a function of any one individual's, ahem, endowment than anything else. I mean, if you're swinging around a whiffle bat, you might hit something every now and then, but it's not normally a problem as long as you maintain a somewhat respectful distance. Someone very concerned might take the tuck and hold approach, you know, like that Bill guy from Silence of the Lambs, but there is a minor problem there of little cyclops peeking out at the guy behind you the whole time, which, yeah, I guess is a little strange. That would be OK for the guy in the very back, though, I guess.

Cythraul: The obvious gay jokes aside, assuming this isn't a troll 'Dear Abby,' I admire people that have this level of comfort with their bodies. Group showering with any sex is something I'd run away from in terror.


Honestly I find it hard to shower with two people in a normal shower. How they manage 3 or 4 without it being just dick to dick in there eludes me.

topcon: I played football for one year in highschool (1990's,) no one ever got a shower afterward, you waited until you got home.. I was in many, many gym classes, and no one ever got showers then, either. I used to go running with friends, or playing raquetball...we never had a group shower.

There's no way that's typical. I'd almost think the letter is fake. Heterosexual male teenagers aren't taking showers with each other at home, in a home-style shower. In my personal experience, as stated above, I never even saw anyone using proper group showers together.

And anyone who goes to a public gym knows, speaking as a male, anyway...who is the one group of people who are always naked in the bathroom? SENIOR CITIZENS. Even when changing stalls are available, like at the gym I go to, and used by everyone else, 75 year old dudes will walk around the bathroom naked. They're literally the only ones that do.


Well, if every personal experience you've had runs contrary to the article, it's probably safe to say it's not happening anywhere in the known universe.

Except for the naked old dudes (those are universal) I have had the exact opposite experience. Vast open showers from middle school on for football, swimming, wrestling. More of the same in Army barracks.

Different areas are different I guess.

Walker: GrizzledVeteran: I read the column in today's (print) newspaper and was surprised by the answer. In our online age, I figure teens have seen all the naked bodies they want to (online), but I keep hearing that the overall trend is toward _more_ privacy in these situations, with newer-construction schools and camps and public pools providing individual showering stalls and changing rooms (for both men and women), etc.

Anyone have any reliable data?

/BTW, nice job, rudemix--clever and subtle!!!

Yeah, America (and the world) seem to be getting more prudish. Even over in Europe less men wear speedos than they used to, when just a few years ago you were the outcast if you DIDN'T wear a speedo. More covering up, more "don't look at my wee wee" stuff going on everywhere.


and I'm just fine with that... what with everyone getting fatter and fatter and fatter and all.

PallMall: BullBearMS: Weird things happen when young people grow up with the attitude that "If I were gay, I'd come right out and say it, cause it's not that big a deal."

Well, weird for those of us who grew up worried that someone might think we were gay.

If you grew up worrying that someone might think you're gay... maybe it's because you're gay - and still in the closet.


Well, research has shown that the homophobic "straight" guys are the ones whose wieners chub up when shown gay porn.

It's the non-homophobic straight guys who are unexcited by it.

One study asked heterosexual men how comfortable and anxious they are around gay men. Based on these scores, they then divided these men into two groups: men that are homophobic, and men who are not. These men were then shown three, four-minute videos.

When viewing lesbian sex and straight sex, both the homophobic and the non-homophobic men showed increased penis circumference. For gay male sex, however, only the homophobic men showed heightened penis arousal.

Heterosexual men with the most anti-gay attitudes, when asked, reported not being sexually aroused by gay male sex videos. But, their penises reported otherwise.
 

As I've mentioned before, some guys are pretty secure in their heterosexuality.

Some parent must have complained about their kid getting bullied for having a small penis.

I went to 3 high schools and got naked in all of them. After practice, all the dudes hit the showers and got naked. Yes.. we made fun of the kids with little dicks, and called all the schlong guys "John Holmes." We didn't snap each other with towels in the ass (maybe that's a swim/dive team thing) or soap each other down. We cleaned off then got dressed.

Oddly enough, the girls' showers were individual with curtains to hide their lady bits. I can only assume this was so they didn't have to show off the strings holding back the gore.

I wonder about the legality of it all... he admits he has one son who is 17 and one who is 18.
If any of the friends are 18+, then they're a naked adult showering with a naked minor (the 17 year old). If all the friends are 17 or less, than the 18 year old brother is guilty of being naked with a naked minor. This all sounds highly illegal.

I have two adult (27ish) male friends who do this, both straight. They've been friends since middle school, and have been showering together a long time. When questioned, they look at us like we're the ones who are completely crazy. One explained it as a holdover from his days as a college soccer player, but I would think that's more of a large group shower thing, not a "Hey, let's jump in this normal sized shower together." They've jumped in the shower (and the tub) together on large group trips as well. Just like the article, we can hear them laughing and chatting in there.

None of us can wrap our heads around it.

Cyberluddite: Yeah, Abby, you're right of course. This is not gay, not gay at all, and there's nothing sexual at all about a bunch of normal, healthy, athletic teenage boys getting all hot and sweaty and then 3 or 4 of them squeezing into a shower stall together and soaping up their firm, tight, young flesh, as they press their naked, soapy bodies together and help each other wash up those hard-to-reach areas.
