I recently took a trip to Austria and stayed in a hotel where there was spa/sauna facility. I went to check it out and it was a coed facility, so I prepared my shorts and towel before going into sauna.
Then I found a guy in there completely nude and that caught me off guard because it was supposed to be a coed sauna. He was leaving and started speaking to me in German which I didn't understand then he just walked away into shower still completely nude. I didn't mind the nudity but just found it strange because if my female friends came down with me, they would have been shocked.
Then I googled about it and found that in German speaking countries, this is completely normal and not being naked in spa is in fact inappropriate.
I found it interesting and thought I'd share it here. I wish that gyms around here would be a little more open. No one goes into sauna/steam room naked in my area.View Thread
After writing the previous post, I headed out to the gym and encountered the other extreme. Many shower stalls were taken (no curtain on any stall). So I went into one that's available and it was almost opposite from another guy, so he could see me and vice versa.
He probably felt uncomfortable because the moment another stall on my side freed up, he moved into that one right away so we wouldn't be able see each other.
To me, I understand privacy and personal space. It's not like I deliberately chose that stall so I could see him (I didn't care to see him), but he didn't have to go out of his way to avoid being seen like that. He could just finish doing his thing and leave.
I think that's the other extreme from that guy you encountered.View Thread
So there are no curtains or dividers, correct? If so being next to will provide him closer view of you than being opposite from.
That does seem strange that he would pick a shower right next to you 2 feet away when there are 6 others to choose from. It's like one of those unspoken urinal rules that most guys know and abide by.
But again maybe there are other reasons. Other showers ran out of soap? Or he knows that that shower head is the best (like at my gym, some shower heads are really weak or spray out mist, etc, so I have my favorite spot too). Or maybe it's his favorite, usual spot.
You said you wanted to see what would happen. What would you have wanted to happen though?View Thread
