You know I think that in one sense this urinal-avoidance business is just a piece of all of us getting more and more plugged into just ourselves and not connecting with anyone else. Last week I even saw a young guy, fully clothed, bring his iPad with him into the steamroom! Now there's one place where it's great to be unplugged from the whole world, except perhaps from a couple of other guys you might be able connect with and to talk to there. And I don't think that the steam would do any electronic device much good, either.
Same at home -- everyone has his/her own TV set and nobody watches the same program anymore. Or eat together, it seems. So I guess why should the men's room be any different? The whole busines to me seems like society going in the wrong direction.View Thread
I'm not understanding you, HairyD. Do you use urinals? And if you do if someone comes up and starts using the on next to where you are, is that guy 'in your space'? To me -- and I certainly do think as a male since I am one -- the guy next to me is not in my space and I am not in his. We are both taking a leak at a reasonable distance from each other.
A guy goes into a stall to avoid a black eye? I must say I had never thought of it and still do not think that a reasonable explanation! To me it just sounds fruitcake.View Thread
And just what are these younger guys afraid is going to happen? If it's their conscience and they're afraid that another guy is going to hit upon them the same gross way that they hit upon women, could be they have it coming.
Otherwise, I can't imagine what threat having a guy at the next urinal could be to somebody. Unless that person gets freaked out being thought of as a sex object.
Being a sex object can be fun -- but that's another topic and I'll just stop here for now.View Thread
Over the years it's been customary for guys to hang out together in the men's room shoulder to shoulder at the urinals to have a 'squirt 'n shake'. However increasingly frequently I'm finding myself alone at the urinals as younger guys head straight for the stalls where they pee standing up. Some close the stall door behind them, some don't. And many appear to pee onto the seat, onto the floor and fail to flush, all of which is rather disgutsting. I understand that some guys have a nervous condition which inhibits their urine flow if they are trying to go in the presence of other. To those guys I'll give a break. But what about the rest of you? Being able to take a leak conveniently at a urinal is one of those benefits we guys get as males and it's too bad seeing it not being taken advantage of. It's also too bad that you're missing the easy camaraderie which came from hanging out together at the urinals. Maybe it's part of the increasing headset/computer society where we don't communicate directly with other people as much as we used to. What are your thoughts about all this? Maybe you'll come have a leak next to me and let me know! View Thread
Over the years it's been customary for guys to hang out together in the men's room shoulder to shoulder at urinals to have a 'squirt ''n shake' while making small talk. We'd get done, stuff ourselves back into our pants and be on our way.
Nowadays it seems I'm increasingly by myself at the urinals as younger guys head straight for the stalls where many of them pee standing up into the toilet. Some shut the doors behind them, some don't. (And many of them spray onto the toilet, the seat and the floor as well as not flushing, all of which I find disgusting!)
I know that some guys can have a nervous condition which inhibits their urine from flowing easily when they're trying to pee in the presence of others. Those guys I'll give a break to. But for the rest: what are you going into a stall for? Being able to use a urinal to get it done is a convenience pleasantly reserved for males and it does seem too bad not to see it being used. Also missed is the easy camaraderie which used to take place when we 'hung out together'.
What's up, guys? Please fill an older guy in!View Thread
I've done it on occasion -- now mainly just try to keep pit hair from getting out of control
There are a number of us guys who shave off just about all of our body hair -- Norelco makes a product just for that and probably other companies do, also. At one time I was doing a good deal of nude beaching and thought it would be fun to strip myself of most of my hair as well. Only problem was the hair grew back in so quickly it took quite a while to shave it all. And I became sensitive to having stubble on my forearms -- that I think is a little wierd.
But hey, if you want to shve your pits, go for it! It probably does make you look better. And if you think you look better you will feel better and be happier.View Thread
Hey HairyD -- yes, I do freeball regularly, at least once a week. I don't do it all the time because I think that if I did I would get too used to it. Now when I just slip on jeans with nothing but gymrat underneath my penis does appreciate it and does get semi-hard a number of times during the day. But it does stay pointing down -- that's what I meant when I was talking about being conditioned to stay soft most of the day. I can be big and even a bit excited but if I'm pointed down I still say it's soft. When it's hard there's no doubt about it! That's when I'm pointing to my chin or the ceiling and there's no room in pants for that.View Thread
I have a studly black leather jockstrap I wear for those days when I'm feeling especially butch and want to urge myself to greater achievement! After wearing it a number of times the leather stretches to cup you just right - nothing like it.View Thread
If your penis wants to be hard, it will be hard -- when you're asleep, that is. While we are awake we have been well-conditioned to keep ourselves soft most of the time.
If you go to bed nude I bet your penis will enjoy the freedom and will be hard as you drift off to sleep, when you wake up and a number of times in between. If you don't already sleep nude, give it a try and see how it feels for you. If you are currently a nude sleeper I bet you're hard a lot more often than you may think!View Thread
