Being a nudist, obviously it doesn't bother me a bit. This was not always the case, tho. I was very up-tight as a kid, and really dreaded that first day of "phys ed" in the 7th grade (age 12) where we would all have to "dress out" in shorts and a t-shirt. It was bad enough having to change and be seen in my underwear, but what was REALLY traumatic was the required shower afterwards. When we went back to the locker room after that first class, I was not the only one who was hesitant , but eventually all 50 or so of us boys stripped naked and headed for the showers which was just 1 big concrete room with about 20 or so showerheads mounted along the walls. Back then(about 40 years ago), kids did not reach puberty as early as now, so very few of us had fully developed penises and hair "down there." Those of us who did received some very obvious stares from the others. That first time, there were a number of erections...including my own, but those decreased during the next week or 2 as we all gradually became more comfortable. After that, I experienced group shower situations all thru high school, on into college, and even til today at the Y. I think that being exposed (no pun intended) to group nudity at a young age opened my attitudes about such things and contributed to my becoming a nudist in later years.
