Question of the day

Would you rather change out of a wet bathing suit in a crowded locker room or wait to change at home an hour later?

    Is it a coed lockeR room? Oh wait, this is totally a “chick” question? Right?

    But for the record, I wouldn’t want to risk chaffing so I’m getting out of those wet drawers ASAP. 🙂

      Chick question? What the heck does that mean?? LOL!!!

      • mssc54 says:

        I don’t think there are many guys who would ride home in their car/truck with wet shorts simply out of modesty.

        Unless of course it’s really cold in the locker room. 🙂

          You’d be surprised, Mssc…

          My dad used to teach High School Phys Ed. He said you wouldn’t BELIEVE the number of boys who didn’t want to change in the locker rooms after gym. He gave up trying to make them shower (and he worked those kids… they’d be sweaty and nasty), even though he gave them plenty of time at the end of class to do so. He retired in the early ’90’s, and it’s only gotten worse. And it was all because they didn’t want to undress in front of other guys.

          I see a LOT of guys at our local pool who leave with their wet trunks and drive home that way.

            Was their nic names “Shorty”?

            I guess things were just different in the 70s. Their mommies and daddies have filled their heads with way to much “stranger danger.”

            • Joy says:

              I actually know a few men like this who are very “shy” in front of others. I know one grown man who won’t shower after hockey games with the boys. I know a few men who can’t use public restrooms unless alone.

              • Laura says:

                I know guys like that, too. One that I know has never liked locker rooms. He’s very homophobic, and is *sure* that every guy in the room is “watching” him as he’s changing.

  2. Joy says:

    I am extremely shy this way. Depending on the where’s, what’s and why’s of it, if I had to, I crawl inside the wall and change PRONTO but if I were at my local pool, I’d suffer till I got home.

    I know how stupid that sounds but hey, it’s the way I am.

  3. Ellen says:

    That doesn’t sound stupid at all, Joy!
    I assume you have a towel with you? So, if you are shy, you can wrap the towel around you and struggle to get the wet bathing suit out and get dressed, in oh o nice dry clothes :-).

  4. Laura says:

    I was practically raised in a locker room, so I have ZERO shame. I’m getting out of that wet suit, and consider yourself lucky if I’m feeling modest and face the wall while I do it.

  5. Lucy says:

    I agree with Laura…

  6. SKL says:

    I’d go find an empty bathroom or shower stall and change in there.

  7. Nikki says:

    I wouldn’t not want to sit in a wet bathing suit for an hour. I am shy about stuff like that though. I’d do it as quickly as possible!

  8. starlaschat says:

    What a good question. Tough one I don’t like the options. Maybe like Joy I’d find a hole in the wall. SKL had a good idea.

  9. Karen Joy says:

    Oh gosh,this is a scenerio Im in when visiting relatives and we go to the gym alot.They all change out in the open,in front of anyone.I have a few times with my back turned but most times I find a bathroom stall to change in.I find it easier to do that in front of strangers but not people I know.I dont understand why they cant make change stalls.Not everyone likes to bare all in public.At home when I go to the pool I leave with my suit on and drive home and change there.

    I wouldn’t have a problem changing in a locker room now. But when I was in high school, now that’s a different story!

  11. Sue says:

    I could change in the locker room. There’s ways to do it so you don’t have to have it all hang out there and the only ones who would be looking at you are the little kids b/c that’s what kids do and then you could show them all there is to love about you and scar them for life so they never look at anyone ever again!

    • SKL says:

      LOL, Sue! I swear that is one of my childhood memories -went camping with my parents, and they had community showers. I was horrified to be looking at some lady’s big butt! My mom told me not to look and I certainly didn’t try to, but I wasn’t prepared for that in advance.
