This is bugging me for a bit now, so I have to ask. Might be some cultural difference in different places and times, but here's the thing.. I don't know how they did things when and where you were young, but when I was growing up, after p.e. class at school you were obligated to shower afterwards, no getting out of it. And no private cubicles, either. It was strip down naked, get in the communal shower all at once. Nobody really liked it, but that was how it was and everybody wanted to appear all adult and mature so nobody really complained. Now for years, I believed that most adults when showering communal, it didnt really bother them. Like I suppose some are a bit shy about it and avoided it if possible, but most just did it with no prob. So what have I been noticing the last couple of times after group lessons in the gym? Well, the dudes just kept their shorts & briefs on... like, they showered with their underwear. I was like.. all at once. I'm a bit shy myself about these things, it's not like I enjoy haveing my junk be anything but covered up in company, but you know, it's been my upbringing that showering, sauna, etc that just done naked. So now I've been told that it's pretty much the (informal) norm now here, at schools and gyms and the like, that people have become a bit prudish and shower with their underwear on nowadays... Is this a local cultural thing here? Or is it the other way around and the fact dudes showered naked in company is the abnormality? So how did you guys do it when you were young? Did you shower after p.e. in a group or had a private shower? And now as adults, how 'normal' is communal showering considered? Is it something that would bother you?
