When I was in grade school through high school we were required to shower after PE starting in 5th grade. It was a communal shower as well and that was back in the late 60s-70s.
In my gym, it is funny to watch 15 year old who come in from swimming practice in Speedos briefs and cover up to change into their undies. Most of them don't shower before getting dress. Some guys will even go into the toilet stalls to change clothes.

I agree with tylakeland. I relish my time in the sauna in my gym and go in there naked all the time. My issue everyone else is not so that makes me a bit self consious if I am not alone. Why is that here in the south?View Thread
I am curious how often men find themselves having a boner while asleep. I myself have a boner all night long and find my erections to be problematic when turning over etc. I believe this is good for the penis health but all night? Should I ask my doctor about this?View Thread
I have skin chafing on the top of my penis shaft near the base and have tried all sorts of over the counter meds, including petroleum jelly, to clear this up. It seems as though a fungal cream helped the best. I stopped using is once it started to clear up and now the skin is cracked and dry again. It really burned this morning when I got in the shower. Any suggestions? I have an apointment with my female dematolgist next week for another reason and may have to work up my nerves to get her to check it.View Thread
Just be careful where you do this. A guy in our town was caught by a bunch kids in a school bus next to him at a red light. He was tracked down by the local police and arrested with the same charges as if he was standing on the street corner exposing himself.View Thread
It was my father's and I have no memory of being intrigued by his body other than I remember taking showers with him when I was a toddler. As I got a little older I didn't take showers with him since I preferred taking a bath.
As for memory of the first adult penis, that would have to be in high school in the gym shower with classmates as we grew up from 5th grade to 12th grade. It was an open shower, we all went through puberty together and we were pretty comfortable with our bodies. This was in the 70s. I am sure a few of the guys with smaller members were shy about themselves. I think most of us were intrigued by how everyone was different, particularly the one chap who was not circumsized.View Thread
