Lets Talk About Locker room Etiquette ( Behind the Scenes of Gay)

by Accidental Bear

I have had discussions on this topic and usually find myself on the other side as everyone else. Lets have a grown up talk about gay mens behavior in the locker room. Putting internal homophobia, body issues and the excuse that men are just animals and need sex aside. What are your observations in the locker room ( No, this isn’t going to be a discussion about size queens) Often I have found myself  irriatated by the complete lack of discretion by my gay brothers. Most people are there to work out, shower and get on with their business. On the other hand some guys stand in mirror and shave for an hour , while their naked peters press against the sink ( not sanitary, no debate), other walk around with bright red peters they have obviously lathered up far to long. Just because Im gay ,  I have to be ok that the guy in shower across from me is making tweaker gestures at me with his face  while he jacks off 4 feet from me? As an “adult” gay male, I know sex happens in ALL SORTS of places( I’ve tried most) including gym steam room amongst a long list. I’ve been told, ” This is what happens at a gay gym”. This furiates me because , its a gym with regular gym fees, weight machines and treadmils, NOT gay machines, gay fees ( unless they are sneaking them in, hmmm), gay showers etc.

I believe in the utimate disretion. So imagine, after an intense , focussed work , a gym member  taking a quick rinse to get back to work, is stalked and RUDELY gawked ( not just a friendly, Hey nice ass gesture with his eyes) at by a  troll of sorts ( of any age or race)  jacking off using  free soap provided by gym, and then after not taking the hint of his  shower mate  for being NOT  interested, the shower cruiser doesn’t disarm and keeps masturbating. Who would be at fault if the stroker got punched in the face?

Many of the places I have lived across the US I encountered  bizarre incidences in steam rooms where a guy has taking the liberty to make awkward advances without thought or concern at who is around. This is not being prude and I am all about sexual liberty and freedom, but at some point, common sense, compassion of those around you, common decency all need to be considered.

Now, how do you feel gays?
