what is going on in this country? males are so shy and silly about their bodies.we all have a nose hanging off our face and everyone's nose is differently shaped yet no one is sensitive about it. we[men> most all, have a penis and testicles but there is an increasing number of men who do not allow any one to see themselves in a state of nakedness. why? it only draws more attention to you. you see other men naked around the locker room or dressing rooms or dorms but you are so intent on hiding your genitals it sets you apart. most of us are similar in size,shape, etc. we all look like each other in general and most of us don't have any problem being naked around each other. and yes most men look at other men's genitals. it just confirms that we are all alike. if my nose is big no one comments on that and if my penis is small, no comments on that either. we accept ourselves as we are and likewise accept others as they are. i know of no place on earth where there is any criteria for the size of a man's genitals except for the pornographic industry. if that's the thing men are relating themselves to then they are sooo misinformed. how many men have the genitalia of porn stars, look at other naked men, you don't see many who are much different than you. have you ever been in the boy scouts, or the service, or on a sports team. really, you wouldn't last long hiding your dick around there. have you ever been in a locker room where your fellow team members were jumping around, grabbing and just fooling with each other. this is how well adjusted men behave, it's called fun, no body is concerned about their body being different. i am tired of these younger uptight guys with their towels wrapped so tight, afraid somehow that their dicks are something for no one to see. and the looks on their faces when they are face to face with a naked man. it's sort of a disapproving look as if the sight of someone who looks like themselves is disgusting. i have been going to the same health clubs most of my life. the ymca's at least around where i am from have upgraded the facilities to compete with the times. when i was a child i remember none of this self conscience behavior. and i even remember swimming naked with my father in the pool. today the place is coed and modern and pretty nice, except for the jerks who are so uptight that they are trying to impose ridiculous behavior among other men. i didn't really mean to rant like this, but i'm sick of this silent undercurrent that being naked where it has always been appropriate is now a taboo. fight back. stand up, strip down, say hello to the guy next to you and relax.there's nothing to hide. the birthday suit is the great equalizer.View Thread
