I have no hang ups about being naked in front of other guys, especially in a locker room. However, I find it amusing how some guys go to great lengths not to be seen. I must admit, I am more likely to notice someone who is showering in their trunks/underwear before I notice a naked dude. I personally don’t understand what the big deal is. What are they afraid of? Do they think someone is going to point at their dick and laugh?

I think I have gotten, or am getting to a point of limited shame with my body. I remember as a kid doing the towel change dance of trying to not get fully undressed. I would see older men just strip down and walk around naked in the lockerroom. I think the more comfortable we get with our bodies the less shame we have with being naked. There are a lot of attractive, good looking guys on this forum. I have a tiny bit of envy and desire to look as good as them. Slowly, work in progress.

During my teenage years, like many young men I would avoid showering nude at the gym/pool showers and would do the towel dance in the changing rooms. When swimming, I would wear baggy shorts and keep them on to shower.

When I was in my older teens, I would occasionally try to shower naked to prove to myself and others that I was 'mature' and couldn't care less about being naked, but I felt uncomfortable and self-conscious.

In my early 20s, though, something clicked and all of a sudden I found myself walking naked to showers, not a care in the world, and showering happily in the buff in the communal showers.

As I've grown up more, I've come to appreciate and enjoy the nude environment of the locker room. Difficult to explain, but it feels like an intrinsically masculine thing to do and is part of a right of passage.
Admittedly, I do have naturist tendencies anyway so that helps. I know a lot of Brits are brought up to be very modest (prudish?) about nudity!

Safe to say, though, when I visit a new swimming pool and hear the dreaded words 'changing village' - complete with single, private cubicles for changing and showering - my heart drops.

The showers at my university's Rec center are stalls. The locker room is fairly open in plan, though the larger space is divided into smaller ones because of the rows of lockers. They also tend to divide the different guys into groups. Like the first space closest to the locker room entrance is usually for the bodybuilders. The next two spaces are the most open and for the larger population. And the last area closest to the door to the pool deck is usually taken by us swimmers. The guys that change there are more open to going nude and walking to the showers nude or wrapped in a towel or just in their speedos.

Personally, I go to the showers in just my underwear/Speedo and come out wrapped in my towel waist down.

Like SpeedoLadUK I was brought up in an incredibly conservative family where nudity was a definite no-no, but as I've got older I've lost all those inhibitions and am more than happy to appear naked in public. The gym I use has separate shower cubicles but with no screens or curtains, and I always shower nude.

The local pool where I swim at has very old school lockers. Lockers against only two walls. Open space with benches in the middle, everyone changes in front of everyone. The showers are in one area gang showers everyone showers nude for the most part.

it wasnt till early 20s where i started going to the pools with open showers, at first it felt strange, but after awhile you get used to being naked around other men. and like mentioned above, its quite normal to be naked in a locker/shower room environment, and you tend to notice more to those who are showering in their shorts..
