My Fear Of Public Showers
Back in the day, boys would normally shower after gym class. I an uncertain if this really is still the standard these days but I spent four years of high-school without ever once setting foot in the boys public showers Even on hot muggy days after grueling fitness center sessions, the temptation of a refreshing shower never crossed my mind. The biggest reason why I refused to use the high-school facilities was the awful experiences I saw other students had.
There were cases where the adolescent lads would “snitch” clothes or ridicule other boys. The poor pupils who suffered this bullying didn’t appear pleased to be on the receiving end of someone’s prank.
As I grew older, my fear of using the public shower never went away. I determined to join a gym since I was gaining an excessive amount of weight and this time I understood there was no preventing the shower room.
The health club rules said you had to shower before entering the pool area. After a grueling work out, all I wanted to do was jump into the Jacuzzi and let the hot water melt away the aches and pains. Therefore I made a conscious decisions to face my fear.
Using the public showers was one of my biggest fears
My first time getting naked and using the shower was extremely strange for me. I felt so uncomfortable taking my clothes off in front of a bunch of unfamiliar guys. The only reason I could muster up the guts was seeing the way the other guys looked so comfortable being nude. I actually watched two nude men talking about their plans for the weekend and the fact they were both naked did not seem to faze them.
Regrettably, over the years that I worked out in this gym, I never developed this comfortable with social nudity. But I ‘m happy to say no one stole my clothing nor was I subjected to any bullying. Actually, nothing out of the ordinary actually occurred in the shower room. It became something of a routine. I would take off my clothing, shower, get redressed and go on about my business like regular.
I learned a valuable lesson from http://rudenudist.com . I learned that I should never avoid something only because I felt uncomfortable with it. Sometimes you only have to go with teenage nudism and more often than not nothing bad may happen.
Who knows, maybe one day I could wrap my head around the unclothed liberty that many nudists experience every single day! But for now, nudism is apparently a little jump. That said one never knows!
