Default Locker Room Nudity

I'm 18 and I've always been a private person. It's very rare that another person sees me naked. I'm starting university in the fall and the gym and pool there has open change rooms and showers. Should I try them? Any advice? Anyone else uncomfortable naked?

Just've a look at everything there and then decide if you can get along with it or not. Can't say more, because I've never been such a private person like you.

But the tip of Michael, the Wise, is certainly a good advice. It is all a question of overcoming and habit.

Just the way you were raised to a private person when it comes to nudity. This private person thing you share with way more users of this forum as you can imagine. Sometimes I quietly feel pity for those users. Subconsciously, they were inoculated with shame, where shame isn't opportune at all.


It's your choice now.

Cedrick, I agree with Michael. I was dreading the thought of being naked in front of a bunch of guys for swimming. If it works for you as it does with many others, after a couple times of being naked in front of others you'll see that it isn't bad at all. In fact, I'm perfectly comfortable with walking around naked.

Growing up playing sports I got an early exposure to open changing/showering. No big deal. Won't take long to be comfortable naked.

I've never really had an issue with being nude around other guys in the locker room or showers, but I totally understand that it can be more uncomfortable for others. I had a friend that was similar to you, he was ok with naked changing before he hit puberty and then he became ultra shy about, especially for PE at school. Initially he tried all sorts of ways to cover up when getting changed (like trying to do it under a towel and stuff like that). But it was awkward for him and honestly I told him it just drew more attention to him. So little by little he got used it; at first he'd face the locker, not look around at anyone and be quick about it, especially taking off his underwear (or when putting it back on). For the showers, he'd usually take his time getting ready so that he'd basically be the last one in, or he'd rush to be the first in and out. Eventually he got used to it and started to be more open when he realized that nobody really cared (even though most guys will look to check out the 'competition', and in that way, he was just as curious). I think he also realized that he was basically the same size as everyone else, not too small, not too big. Now he has no issues with it at all anymore.

Ur asking "should I try them". Unless u want
to work out in the gym or take part in a sport it
is not necessary to use the showers. I'm sure it
is not like high school where in some cases it is
mandatory to shower. If u r uncomfortable in
situations where u have to b or expected to b
naked in front of other guys then don't go there.
If u have to use the showers then go in there with
a towel wrapped around urself-shower-then leave
to the locker area with the same towel. After a few
times dressing or undressing and getting more open
with it-it wont matter.

There is no nudity in the locker rooms in my school, and if you strip even to your boxers you're branded "weird" and "gay". As for your situation, just follow everyone else's advice: use the nude rooms a couple of times, and if you're not fullly comfortable with it, seek an alternative.

Once you are naked a bunch you get use to it. Everyone got the same parts and you realize it is no big deal at all.

Happy to chat! Made it to 100 posts!

I don't know what the big deal is with being so modest. I grew up with open showers and changing rooms at school the pool and the beaches. We all have different bodies and penis' and I always found it interesting and normal to change in front of others. I have never been modest and I find it cool when other guys check me out. We also live in a big lake and resort area. There are all kinds of small secluded lakes so I grew up from 6 to the present skinny dipping with others a lot. Just act normal when changing and treat it as no big deal and you will be fine.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

It isn't easy for some people to change in front of others and there isn't anything wrong with that. I'm guessing that at your school you will have the choice as to where you change so you can find a solution that works best for you. There might be a stall you can use or even go back to your room and change in private. I'm sure you won't be the only person that isn't comfortable and being older I really doubt you'll be teased about it.

As the others have said it really isn't a life changing event to change clothes in a group or to be briefly naked with other guys, most of us are OK with it.

I'd recommend you take a deep breath and change in the locker room, it does get easier after a few times.

Good luck

You can try standing showering near corner or facing the wall, then you will get slowly more comfortable.

There is nothing wrong about being modest around others. All of us have different feelings about our bodies. As for me I have not felt uncomfortable being naked in the school lockers, changing rooms or others places with other boys around me. Being naked isn't a big deal for me.

Getting naked in front of others in locker rooms can be difficult for some people. You don't have to walk around completely exposed. Keep your towel on as you go to the shower. And you don't have to stay in the shower for a super long time. You will get more comfortable as you do it. But I know it can be stressful especially in new situations where you don't really know your new teammates.

This is so true. When you wander from the locker to the showers (and vice versa), wrap your towel around you or hold it in front of you so your jewels aren't showing. The shower rooms themselves are pretty big, at least at uni, and there is no need to be standing right next to someone, or opposite them. An exception to that might be a time when you are with friends or acquaintances, in which case a dick's a dick and you are just accepted for whatever you have.

You will get used to it, or you can do it when it when you are horny or feeling sexy to feel less insecure
