another poll

Are men REALLY more comfortable being nekkid than wimmen are?

I got the idea from an enquiring mind and she made me think.

I was an athlete from the time I was a young boy until my body fell apart on me, many years ago. Most male locker room showers are simply a nice tile enclosure with a whole bunch of spigots on the wall. You all walk in there nekkid and don't think twice about it (or at least I never did.).

Guys horseplay nekkid, too--- you know--- pop somebody in the ass with a wet towel, go piss in the hot tub from OUTSIDE while somebody is IN it, smack a wad of Atomic Balm on somebody's bare balls and run off cackling... yeah.

I never did that ANY of that stuff, but some guys do.

Wimmen DON'T. Do you?

I believe that (most) men ARE more comfortable being nekkid than (most) wimmen.

In my household I'd say you are correct..my husband would be naked all day if he could..I just don't know how people can feel that way..I'm envious in a way and wished I could be more "free" but.......nope.

Slightly ot, once in the shower room I whipped a tennis ball at a guy's ass from about 15 feet behind. He caught it! I could see his buttocks clamp down, automatically I suppose, as the ball became stuck. I was pretty well stunned. This guy acted like nothing had happened.

Yea, maybe it has something to do with the fact that boys, from birth, have something that says "I'm a male" and girls don't have much to show until they are 13 or 14.

I always figured women were inherently more demure. then a couple of years ago I worked as an aide at a public high school. Walking the halls during class changes, I noticed that girls were as foulmouthed, or more, than the boys. I also found girls yukking it up over loud belching and farting.
there may be a remaining barrier, however, which only the young women of America can discuss. Have young girls yet started to light farts? I know from my college days that induction into the Order of the Blue Flame was a rite of passage.

Girls get more body image brainwashing than boys, and from an early age. Gah! Even five year old girls are now telling their mommies that they want to be on a diet and think they are too fat. Is it any wonder many women are so self-conscious about their own nudity?

Dittos to what Sandy said. Even walking around the house naked is uncomfortable for me - I always put on sweats or a robe. My husband only wears a robe if it is cold.

My wife and 4 daughters can't relate to my often taking not one but two daily showers in high school, once after gym and then after whatever sport I was in in the afternoons before coming home.

Dad wouldn't sign permission for me to play on my high school football team. So I became team trainer and can still tape ankles and knees like a pro. Any of my pals on the team gave me flack, I had industrial-sized tubs of Atomic Balm, habanero-strength, and stockpiles of foot-long q-tips that could be used for swabbing a jock strap from outside a locker. Sweet revenge is when someone would get into pads and after a few minutes of working up a sweat on the field have to run back to shower his balls for half an hour. I only needed to do this twice and nobody messed with me. If one of my regular ankle tapings didn't shave from the knees, down, I'd peel off an 18" strip of athletic tape and wrap it around the hairiest part of his thigh. Again, only two guys ever had that happen.

It's good to establish a don't-screw-with-me reputation early. Shower rooms are a good place to start.

I also was known for playing javelin-catch in the spring on the track team, so I was certifiably dangerous.

I was comfortable nekkid until I grew a stomach and a saggy ass. Hell, now when its time to get nekkid I act just like some girl.
