Erection in the Shower

Hi All,

I'm a male 32 and I have a terrible problem, everytime I take off my cloths in the public showers in the swimming pool, gym, etc I get an errection, I have a girl friend, not gay, its just it comes up. It not at the stage where i do'nt shower in public anymore.

Has this hapened to any other guys? And how do you deal with it?

At least in the ladies showers they have cubicles and cover themselves up with a towel so i've been tols whay can'nt guys be the same?

It doesn't happen to me - and i'm gay
About what do you think if you take the knickers off? Something must stimulate you. Wet, naked male bodies?

Well if you're nervous about what everyone else will think, do what I was always told to do, imagine them all naked.

In all seriousness, if you're not gay, and I believe you, giving some though to the fact you're in a room full of naked men should probably solve the problem.

this sounds like a self perpetuating problem...the more you become anxious about having a stalker in the public showers the worse the problem becomes.....

What do you mean by this? That if the men in your gym etc always covered themselves up, and you guys all had cubicles, that you wouldn't get an erection?

If your 100% straight then it seems to me that the problem shouldn't lay in the fact that the men are naked or not? Maybe it's nothing about being gay, maybe you just get aroused by being naked in public, a free spirit, perhaps a touch of exhibitionism?

Meh. Try shining one off before you go swimming/football/etc. Oh, and do you get a boner whilst having a shower at home? If so, you probably think nothing of it, but if you're surrounded by naked males, you think "ZOMG, I'm gay"?

Have a wank before you go to the gym/shower in public

Nothing to see here.

The guy's twenty-two, prob just has a surfeit of testosterone. If it's just a semi, I don't think it's a problem. I see fellas walking around nonplussed like this all the time (in communal showers, I mean). If it's something more than this you might want to cover up as many men are homophobic, possibly because they're actually gay themselves.

Anyway, if it bothers you so much:
(a) Cover up with a towel when you can,
(b) Save the shower for when you get home,
(c) The pre-shower wank might work, but make sure to do it at home and not in the changing room.

Plan (c) wouldn't be an option for me as the grand finale would remove all drive and motivation for me to do any physical exercise at all.

I'd think so, certainly if you're a man. In my gym it's either leave and be smelly or have a shower in a communal area. I don't see the big deal.

if you use a gym, take part in team sports or are male then yes, you are very much in the minority.

OP the more you focus on it the more it'll happen, you have to try and stop thinking about it.

Unless you're in a Triga video.
