A friend of mine recently told me about an annoying dude who uses the locker room at his gym. Every time this fool gets out of the shower, he spends almost 15 minutes in front of a full-length mirror, completely nude, while he rubs lotion over every square inch of his skin – including on his ass and his junk.
The moral is simple: if you do your exercising in a gym, don’t treat the locker room like an all-male nudist colony. That’s not what it was designed for. Locker rooms are supposed to be used only for the following activities:
- Stashing your street clothes and other stuff while you exercise
- Showering and toweling yourself dry
- Promptly putting your clothes back on
- Taking your stuff and leaving
That doesn’t mean to say you can’t talk to anyone else in the locker room while you’re showering or getting dressed. It just means that you don’t linger over your conversation. If you still want to keep talking to your bro once you finished getting dressed, leave the locker room and grab a beer – or a coffee, depending on the time of day.
And if, for any reason, you believe you need to rub lotion on your manhood … do it at home, m’kay?
