Would You? Have You? What's Your Opinion?

At one point or another, nearly everybody either has or will shower in public. (Gym, pool, sports, etc.) What if these showers contained members of both sexes, with all bits and pieces wet, soapy, and out and about for everybody to see? My question is simple: Have you ever showered with members of the opposite sex? Would you? What are your views on this?

I've been on a nude beach, and really liked the experience of freedom and having fewer barriers. I was very surprised at how non-sexual the experience was, and people were more open and friendly than other places. I have never taken a shower with a person of the opposite sex other than my wife. I would have no problem being in a co-ed shower, as long as the area was a fairly large room, and open - that is, no doors, easy visibility, where sounds could easily be heard by others. For two reason: First- Protection of the women. Second- protection of myself from false accusations of inappropriate actions.

I am a nudist and raised a nudist family . I showered with all my kids and mrs over the years and been to nudist resorts and swims . I think all showers should be co-ed. I wish we could all live naked . I would love to see you naked .

The only time I have showered with the opposite sex was in my own bathroom or in the public showers at the nudist resort that my wife and I belonged to. So far that has been the only opportunity I have had. However, given the opportunity, I would love to.

I definitely would. I think everyone should be comfortable with their body as well as other's bodies

Our family showers together on a regular basis and sometimes our non nudists friends will join in the shower just to be social with us. ( we built a large shower stall with four shower heads). It started when my girlfriend told her two boys to jump in the shower with me so we could get ready faster. It cut the time in half on everyone getting ready and we used alot less hot water, but it quickly got cramped with me and two boys crammed under one shower head so i remodeled the bathroom and built a large shower stall with 4 heads. Now we all shower together and it has even broken the ice with our non nudits friends.

Yes. At a nudists sauna. Very liberating experience.

Would if I could. I've heard that in Germany in some sport gyms this happens.

I hear coed dorms in college now have coed showers, and Europe?
anyone know about this.
Yes I would by the way. shouldn't be a problem if people, mostly men, just accept the human body and respect people

Never had.. definitely would

I was on vacation with my wife..She went to take a nap.. I went down by the pool to read.. I was laying there minding my own business and 3 ladies asked me to take a picture of them to together.. No problem..
After wards.. as I was leaving I noticed a public shower stalls.. So I popped in one.. ******** down and made sure the curtain wasn't closed as the way.. I saw the women coming up.. I was getting erect so I made sure to soap up and stroke it real slow and long as they watched walking by..

Worked in a resort a while ago and whilst there were technically Male and Female bathrooms, the reality was anyone, anywhere. You quickly got used to anyone stepping out of a shower naked or half covered with a towel and didn't really think much of it. Also had frequent naked or partially clad individuals wandering around the corridors (especially late at night). Now it seems more wrong to me to segregate bathrooms along gender lines. I guess once your used to it, it kind of helps people bond as a tight knit group and I miss some of that freedom and respect in my current 'normal' life.

I worked at a security company in a large city that was set up very much like a regular police department (I have worked for both). The locker room was one large locker room with communal showers/sinks/toilets. We had female officers and male officers that all changed, showered, etc in the same locker room.

There was some talk at one point of putting in separate accommodations for the females, but the cost was out of line for the number of females we had. They were well aware of the situation when they came to work, and for the most part everyone was very professional about it.

It's a naked body, an parts are pretty much parts. Not that big a deal.

Wow, all that enlightenment and no fear of litigation? That is one special company!

I have showered with many naked people of both sexes. I go to a nudist campground, and the only showers are a row of shower heads along a wall. Everyone showers there, and there is actually very little sexual nature to it. Except maybe the time a woman proceeded to shave her pubic area while we were standing next to each other having a conversation.

As far as public showers go, it's no, hell yeah, and the sooner they allow it everywhere, the better.

When it comes to PUBLIC showers, I have showered in a college university setting, which were not coed. BOOOOORING! lol As far as coed showering, I am married, and my wife is a big fan of this. I have to say, we coed shower so much that sometimes I find myself longing for a bit of stretching space! But, coed showering - now THAT's FUN. Especially as foreplay...

Well not exactly. I have not showered with a naked person of the opposite sex. I did however recently while I was in the hospital shower nude while a clothed female nurse's assistant came in and out of the bathroom to watch me and make sure I was okay since I had fallen earlier in the day. I have never before showered with a lady in the room watching me and talking to me while I was totally nude. I would not mind having that happen again though I would obviously rather it not be in a hospital and ideally that the other person also be nude. She came in and out a number of times first to help me put a glove over the place where they hook the iv and then later she came in after I hit my head in the shower and talked to me to make sure I was okay all while I was nude. I had made a loud noise banging my head but was fine. However with mehaving fallen earlier in the day she wanted to make sure I was okay.

Yes, several times, I have visited naturist spas around the UK and have showered with ladies all of us quite nude.
Actually it is interesting to see how quickly people get used to showering in public with the opposite sex and it becomes quite natural. The pruderies of our world are put there by the narrow minded puritans who wrote the RULES for us to follow.

i used to work at a restraunt that kept the work shirts in the back. at the start of the shift every on would just go back there take off their shirts and put on the work shirts. also allot of people are sharing showers at home now to cut down on the water bill and save on hot water, plus think of the building supplies that will be saved if only 1 locker room or bathroom needs to be built.

I have showered with various family members and friends (as well as strangers) of both sexes over the years. I am totally comfortable with it as long as the others are, which is generally the case. What I get asked about is "what if you have an erection?". Well, that sometimes happens, but not as often as people might think. When it happens it happens and the people around me never make an issue out of it because it is a normal and natural occurrence for boys and men that can be caused by a number of different things. Coed showering/bathing simply isn't a sexual event unless you feel that way about it and act on those feelings. I've yet to see that happen in my personal experience.

If we all spent more time naked together in public, there could be so many fewer perverts out there. The human body is a work of art and not to be ashamed of. When I started going to nude beaches, it matured me and freed me from all the bullshit that goes on with clothed people. This summer I will walk with, swim with and shower outside with many people of both sexes. And yes I will get excited now and then, but no need to over react to a beautiful body when I will have nothing to hide.

I have done so many times in Europe, and it is no big thing, everybody just accepts that you are there to shower and gets on with it. Quite natural. In fact in France I have many times used an urinal with a queue of ladies going through to the stalls because the queue in the ladies was too long. Many of the toilets in smaller towns are unisex and in Roscoff I was using a small corner urinal when a lady came in to change her baby. She looked at me and said Bon Jour Monsieur and proceeded to change the baby. I was totally exposed throughout the incident but it felt quite natural and acceptable.<br />
Maybe if the hysterical lawmakers were less uptight these things would sort themselves out.

When I shower I face the wall. If I take my glasses off, all I can see of a woman is her pubes. I was too hot blooded for coed showers before age 50 or so, but I think I now could take it in stride. I would prefer that the women around me be over 30, though. Before our kids were born, I showered with my better half many times. Showering with you girl friend was not unknown in some college dorms 40 years ago.

Yes I have showered with members of the opposite sex several times. It hi usually been at naturist resorts and after the first times it is quite amazing how natural it is to find a woman showering next to you, and they seem quite happy with it. Another reason why naturism is so relaxing.<br />
In Europe on many occasions I have also seen women in male toilets when the queue in their toilets became too long. They queued between rows of urinals with men peeing and coming and going and nobody turned a hair.<br />
We could learn quite a lot from the Europeans about a natural approach to nudity and life.

I would love to go, along with my wife.

Wife and I were at a Jamaica resort which had a coed locker room connected to the spa. It was awesome to see my wife drop her inhibitions and walk around others nude, shower nude, sauna nude and plain just interact nude. She is by no means a prude, but, that took a lot for her to do. She enjoyed looking at the other women and men and liked them looking at her. I must say I enjoyed it as well. It was one of our best vacations and hope to go back.

I would love to be in your situation, with my wife. Thanks for sharing.

I have not had the opportunity to shower nude with females; I<br />
hope that I will someday!<br />
<br />
I think that this sort of thing is good! I believe that the nude<br />
human body is beautiful, and that there is nothing about it<br />
to be ashamed about!

I guess your first step should be to find a girlfriend &amp; shower with her. You seem late to be joining the game, so don't wait any longer.

Clothing optional group situations are nice, but not when a guy is over-eager.

Coed showers could possibly prevent discrimination on the level of which one is cleaner, but you have those anti-European-lifestylists that say no to it. I would say yes to coed showers... Let's meet up and open a public pool with coed showers, nude hot tubs, and oper-stall toilets!

I have showered with girls and women many, many times. Mostly at a campground in Maine when getting back from the beach. There were a series of enclosed but outdoor showers on both sides of the building that had the men's and women's bathrooms in it. The showers had 8' walls starting about a foot of the ground and each was big enough for about 5 or 6 people. Groups of us would pike into one to rinse off salt & sand as well as rinse out bathing suits. Once inside we would all ***** down and when done walk back to our tents in a towel or robe. I would be with adult, teen, adolescent and younger males & females. No big deal.

I wouldnt care if both sexes had showers together nude its all the same

The relaxed freedom evident at fully nude European health clubs is totally disarming..I have enjoyed it many times.. Here even members of single sex clubs are totally uptight..Enjoy life--Drop the shorts AND the towel..

I have been to the public baths in Japan, men, women, kids all together. You shower first then soak in a big pool. People will come from the showers with a towel or a robe on then lay it aside and step into the pool, nudity is of no concern there.

MANY times.... as we are naturists the campsites we visit are all open ....

Going to a nude resort for the first time and found myself showering next to a female. I found this was verry exceptable and not a ofencive thing.

I have not ever had a chnce to shower with anyone of the opposite sex. Unless I were married to them it would have to be non sexual since I do not intend to have sex until I get married but I would not have a problem showering in a public shower area with both sexes.<br />
I would be worried about getting an erection though since I am not used to being around naked women

Shower with a friend, save water.

I spent 21 years in the army. I only showered 2 times with women as a group, felt very natural.<br />
We did everything else together why not?<br />
I remember once where we were deployed and one girl who worked closely with is would always be missing the "female" shower times, as she was attached to my team we all agreed she could come in with shower at our time. This worked fine as nothing seemed strange to us. It was a novelty to us. But one guy who was not on our team, did complain about it. This angered me not because I was getting some free nudity and he wasnt. It was because his argument was "It wasnt "Normal" for opposites sexes to shower together". We lost the argument as the Co was old school so she had to wait til the showers were empty from then on. Sometimes late into the evening, when I had the chance I would "arrange" empty times for her. I found out the real reason later on in my time with that Corps. The guy who complained had well a "small" problem. and was afraid she would see...

My wife and I had similar experiences to ukmav, but ours was after mixed (field) hockey game when the ladies showers weren’t working and my wife came into ours. She knew that I wouldn’t mind and she was never modest about her body. She was the only woman with about ten men, all of whom were quite happy and there was a bit of teasing but nothing overtly sexual. After that it became fairly common that some of the women would shower with the men when it was more convenient to do so, but on the annual fixture that started it, it became the custom. For one or two of the younger men I suspect that it was the first time they’d seen a naked woman close up. <br />
My wife liked to show herself off, modestly, if that is not a contradiction! She often wore see-through clothes, sometimes without a bra, and often went bra-less under T-shirts or other tight clothes. It always pleased me! Nothing better than sliding my hands under her top and finding no impediment to tactile heaven.

I played a lot of Rugby when I was younger not at any great level just often, my team shared a changing room with a hockey team (field hockey) from the same club. One day the hockey team was short of pla<x>yers and draughted in a couple of ladies so that their game could go ahead. None of the rugby pla<x>yers realised this until our game finished when we were in the bath/showers (yes years ago in the days of a comunual bath) after the match when two naked ladies wandered in and started showering. There was a fair amount of good natured comments but generally an acceptance and perhaps a little embarasment mostly on the part of the guys, some of whom I noticed stayed in the bath until after the girls had finished washing themselves. Over the rest of that year it became quite common place to see these girls on the hockey team showering and even using the bath if all th eshowers were full, as the surprise wore off it became normal. Personally apart from an initial surprise (this was 30 years ago when this was a far more taboo matter) I never felt it was anything other than the way things should be.

The closest was in a paradisiac resort (Melia Azul) in Ixtapa- Zihuatanejo a great Mexican Beach, trully gorgeous...There was this european beauty sunbathing with a nice black bikini and when she turned to her side her breast almost fell out of the top... I went to shower on the side of the beach, to be able to enter the pool... and then she got there after me and there she was on my side showering her kid and herself. So tall, slim, sexy and beautiful. She was having a hard time with sand (so fine it sticked to you skin) and was removing it with the help of her nice little hands inside her bottoms, almost bringing them down, and then the top, almost uncovering the nipple, and I got semi hard... lol<br />
<br />
Then I said, what the f... and I started dealing with my own sand but lowering my trunks right in front of her face when she was a little bent this way, and stroking the sand out of my semi erect privates and then my balls also, comming a little outside on the sun...<br />
<br />
She was looking and looking the water running down and cleaning my penis and me cleaning and cleaning, I got very rigid... and she stayed there foe a while, then she got out and reclined in a near side bench facing me... until the told her aproaching husband.. ."we are here".. and then I stooped cleaning my thingy (guess I was very clean form sand by then), and I went to the pool out back... it was fun and she always smiled said hi to me on the aisles or on the pool after that...<br />

kisses<br />

Have showered naked with members of both sexes at outdoor showers at a resort with a nude beach. I'm all for it.

I did once in a gym in Germany. Everything was coed. I happened to be the only gut in the locker room shower with 7 women. It was interesting!

It's definitely a cultural thing (again) ... in Germany (as others have pointed out) it's not considered taboo, nor is it in Austria ... or in Scandinavian countries so I believe. It would be something I would do if it were considered the custom ... but I wouldn't break out on my own to shower with men I didn't know. I have showered with male friends some years ago ... but out of necessity and it wasn't a sexual experience. Nudity just isn't a big deal in some parts of the world.

I agree and I have done the same thing, showering with women and several at the same time but mostly out of convenience. There were occassions of a little sexy fun.

Every month, my wife and i spend a week-end at a yoga retreat. After the evening class, everyone jumps into the communal showers. Since we are all pretty much regulars there, we often wash the backs of whoever is beside you, be it your wife or another woman...it is a great way to shower and socialize after a good workout and meditation session... there are usually at least 10 people in the shower at a time...There are private stallls at the other end, but they are seldom used by anyone.

I see no problem with it. Its not that uncommon among nudists, and in some cultures (Japan for instance) family bathing is a part of everyday living. Sexual activity should not be a part of it, that should be left in private, but there is nothing sexual about bathing in and of itself. So if the bathers were okay with it....then I say it shouldnt be frowned upon.

Yes, we certainly do (;

Thomas, do you mean "Liasons"? lol

The first co-ed shower I was in, and unknowingly, was in Germany. I was at a pool and changed in the mens locker room. I entered the shower area to rise off since one pool was salt water. I was showering and there were other guys in there when a family came in. The women had entered from the other side. That's when it hit me that the locker rooms are seperate but they both are open to the showers from opposite sides. It was weird seeing the feamles of a family shower with strangers. But, it was the norm for them.

Yes. It makes for a blushing experience, since all she did was look at my member.

I have changed in the same locker room for work as women. Some women like their privacy so change at the back where the lockers block the view, others change right beside the guys. Though not always to the buff certainly to the undies. Personally I have no problem either way nor if showered in same shower. The only issue as I see it is the few bad apples that are disrespectful of others, mostly men I am sad to say, but some women too. For this reason and the lawyers these days that could have a heyday it is not likely to happen.<br />
<br />
In Denmark they will suntan in the buff in a busy park in the centre of the city, so it is possible, but does require a different mindset and culture perspective. At least in North America we seemed to have lost are mostly European roots and cannot be trusted or have a variety of unnatural phobias that would make allow coed showers just too complicated for something that should not be so complicated.<br />
<br />
Do I say this because I want coed showers and changerooms? Not at all. It does not matter to me one way or the other. In essence that is how it should be if it was to work without frequent issues.

I've only ever showered with other guys. But boy, would I prefer to shower with girls like your good self. =)

Agreed.

I have and it is a better way to shower.
