Swimming to Cambodia

It’s started. I began my exercise program today... though it’s not much of a program. The plan is simply, “swim.”

My goggles came in the post over the weekend, special positive pressure prescription Barracudas for my own special Olympics. Got a new pair of swim trunks, and I’m all set. I get to the Y, and there’s only one person swimming... half a pool to myself. Natch.

Not gonna tell you how few laps I did, but if past experience is any indication, I’ll be increasing my laps by 20% per week. But it felt... so damn good. I’m still on an exercise high right now; I forgot how motivating it can be, both mentally and physically. Tomorrow, I’m sure I’ll remember how sore you get after that first day.

I also forgot how gay the Y can be.

Yeah, you may not realize it, but the Y is way popular among gay men. Remember the Village People? I used to go to this particular Y in high school... recall the high school pics I posted? Yeah, I got hit on so much that I had to stop using the steam room.

So, I’m just enjoying the water and all, I finish, chat up the lesbian lifeguard for a bit, and head to the shower to wash the chlorine off. I’m washing, washing, and the two other guys in the shower room are looking at me... then I see that they’re specifically looking at my junk. Disconcerting to say the least... guys just don’t do that, not even gay guys - at least in mixed company. Then I realize what the attraction is.

I shave, see? Yeah, I shave the junk about once a week (sorry [blog OhBaby199] ), and it stands out because I don’t shave my chest, stomach, or legs, and I’m a whitey-white Scot. I been doing it for so long that I don’t even think about it, and it’s been a while since I was in shower with others (that didn’t involve sex).

I don’t think I’m gonna stop shaving just to look “normal” in the locker room, but I’m certainly gonna be more self-conscious about it.

I know that more women than men shave, but is this ever an issue in women’s locker rooms? I mean, if you shave, are you self-conscious about it in the locker room? If you don’t, do you notice the women who do?

I've never looked. And I'm self-conscious in the locker room about being naked in front of other women and my low self-esteem. fair or lack thereof is nothing.

Showering in a men's shower room was surprisingly easy though, considering how freaked I was about the women's lol. (SCA event... women's had a mile long line, men were all out fighting so only 3 or 4 of them. And THEY had semi-private stalls).

First takes a moment to enjoy the title

I haven't belonged to a gym in years and am not a locker room crasher so I really don't know. But my last pap test DID cause me a moment of pause, esp since I was meeting the gyn for the first time. Finally figured, wtf - I don't really care. I think I may have actuall blogged it, in fact.

But thanks for the visual - was a whole lot more interesting than the student database I'm supposed to be working on.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

A former boss of mine hated her gym. Not because she was checking out women in the locker room or they were checking her out, but because she would be witness to the women getting out of the yoga class, who had to do gynecological self exams in the locker room, feet away from her and on eye level.

Oh, another thing? Didn't Spalding Gray actually prove it was impossible to swim to Cambodia?

Why do yoga chicks do gyno exams in the locker room?

All Spaulding proved was that he couldn't do it. Had he been successful, his path to canonization as the patron saint of WASPs would have been easier.
