From the wiles of a stranger
If one's own kin and kith
Were more fun to be with.

Changing Room
Sunday. 10.21.07 5:17 pm
We enter the changing room.

There are a row of benches against the wall. We plop our bags on one and rummage through them for our bikinis. Mine seems to have hidden itself away in a secret corner, determined to remain unmolested. I briefly consider upending my bag onto the cold, wet tiles.

“James,” Liz squeaks faintly.

“Mm-hmm?” Finally! I straighten up, clutching my bikini triumphantly.

“Don’t…don’t turn around.”

Automatically my head swivels around. The layout of the room looks something like this:

“Oh.” I sit down on the bench, or rather fall down into a sitting position with a whoosh.

Oh. From where we are we have a good view of the main area of the room. And what a view it is. An expanse of bare flesh stretches before us. Parading around the room and in the open (OPEN) showers. There are naked women everywhere. Young, taut bodies to older, saggier bits. A veritable feast for the eyes, if one were so inclined.

I am terrified.

For the love of god, why isn’t anyone using the changing cubicles? They're all choosing to strip in the middle of the room instead, some bent over in embarrassing positions in full view of anyone who cares to look.

I am staring. Liz is staring. We are staring. Mostly in unreserved shock (and a little panic on my part), but also because we haven’t quite decided our next course of action. To follow suit and undress along with everyone else or to head for the cubicles and for the comforting snick of a lock closing?

We eye the cubicles desperately. They of course have to be located right in the furthest corner of the room. To get there, we have to weave through the press of naked bodies. If that isn’t agony enough, doing so would also automatically brand us as pussies (heh, pussies).

What to do, what to do? On one hand, the anticipated embarrassment of pulling my clothes off in front of total strangers makes my stomach twist into knots. But on the other, I really don’t want to be a pussy.

Urgh. The guys are waiting outside. I have to make a decision.

“I’m…,” I clear my throat and try again. “I’m gonna use a cubicle.”

With that, I take a deep breath and strike out through the room. I soon regret my decision. I’m so painfully aware of my obvious attempts to avoid eye contact and the accidental touch that I’m shrivelling up with awkwardness inside. But I’m almost there. I finally reach the safety of a lockable door and heave a sigh of relief. Then I quickly change and brace myself before practically fleeing to the exit.

As I wait outside for Liz to join me, I catch the towel girl looking at me. She presses her lips and looks away. She knows, she knows! Pussy, pussy, pussy! You are a pussy, the line of her lips seems to say. Has someone spread the word already? This is too much to bear.

I am mortified. I am miserable.

Hmmm.. do think that way. Maybe that girl's jealous of your nice body and the guys you were with. Furthermore, why bother what others think? As long as what you did made you feel much better and comfortable.

I had a similar experience at a gym once, but I wasn't changing, just passing through.

And it was all old women, terrible.
» Chloefoxx on 2007-10-21 03:04:26

Thankfully I've never had to go through that. Sounds traumatizing. :S
» randomjunk on 2007-10-21 09:26:21

been to that situation before... it was an utter shock for me.

but i ended using the changing room because i'm comfortable to change without eyes molesting me.

» vincent ( on 2007-10-23 06:14:28

Hahaha...u haven't been going to the gym have you??? Unless ppl there don't strip naked like here. It took me a while to get used to it...;p

So you can imagine that I really really enjoyed the men's changing room while I was there.
» Paul ( on 2007-10-23 10:52:04

i was in YMCA
at the end of pool time. The lockers were deserted. Except for an old lady who just happened to pass by our aisle--conveniently located by a large, glaring mirror--and we were treated to several reflections of her naked flesh. Note: I was...seven? years old.
But yes, word of advice? Get used to it. You'll lose your 'ewww' soon enough. Get stripping!

thats pretty sweet... except for the saggy part... ewww
» gotenkz on 2007-10-26 09:52:17

Oh geez. This makes me laugh a whole lot, because I work at a pool, and I get the privilege of monitoring that awkward expanse of nudity. I'm so used to it by now, though. One must learn to rip off their clothes with wreckless abandon.

Why haven't you updated?!
» middaymoon on 2007-12-23 02:47:47

Ha ha ha. You know what? I always get to see the "parade-ers" walking around and they are usually the saggy-er bits! It is funny really. The taunt bodies are hiding and the saggy ones just let it all hang out! Then of course you have the asians (no offense) that walk around like they are in the room all ALONE! Hello??!!
