I was in the marines and bootcamp requires you to be in a shower room with 70 dudes dongs swaying in the breeze. That pretty much erased any insecurity's I had about seeing another mans penis or anyone seeing my own.
Of course these weren't erect peens, but it doesn't bother me either way.

@sandiego27 Are you telling me that if someone had become erect in the shower room that there wouldn't be hell to pay? As many of you have said, we all have penises; I understand that is, strictly anatomically-speaking, only a body part, but it's interesting to me that all of you who have posted seem to have become desensitized to the image and notion of another man's erect penis.
Let me pose another question: Have any of you ever watched homosexual pornography? And if you have, what kinds of feelings did that experience inspire?

so you heard of it through a gay colleague and you jumped right on the website to check the pics...
Why even make this post? Get your life together. People post and comment to help stay motivated and motivate others. I personally comment to keep others motivated. I like to see guys achieve their goals. I had mine up for a while, but took them down because I'm waiting until I have something more substantial to show the difference of before and after.
I don't mind comments on my pics. It's actually encouraging...
If this is "gay" then so is most of Bodybuilding.com forums. They're looking at guys legs, chests, arms and such. Any focused attention on a male from a male should be considered gay, and the fact you're on this website makes you gay... that is if I were to go by your standards.
That is all.

@somebodyelse You're very sensitive, I see. I'm merely trying to illustrate the point that there's nothing here that distinguishes itself from homosexual pornography (of the print variety). Of course in a forum like this very few people will recognize that. There is an obvious difference (to me) between a man's chest and penis, but I'll run with the comparison you've made ... Sure, there is something fundamentally similar between the two practices you've alluded to; in both cases, the consumers are obsessed with a certain facet or aspect of their physical make-up and constantly compare themselves to others who are bigger, faster, stronger, etc. However, with the male genitalia, that obsession is crossing certain lines that a bodybuilder does not cross, and of course all of these lines have to do with human sexuality. Do I think it is dangerous? No, but let me ask you this -- those men of your father's generation, those gruff, secure, confident men ... What would they have thought of a forum like this one?

If you are to follow evolutionary scales and just look at our animals and pets... they don't wear speedos. your dog doesn't wear a fig leaf. It is all part of the natural body.
Apparently you've never sketched a nude model. Your mentality is actually quite infantile. That's all I'm saying. You're still pretty holed up in your own inhibitions about what is skin and what is skin. It's all skin, muscle, and tissue. To the "world" there's levels of "obscenity" blanketed over these portions of the body based solely on religious teachings. In parts of this world, breast are not a major deal. That is, nipples are shown quite regularly on television. In some societies, that is considered quite alright. In other parts of this world, if a woman shows her CHEEKS she can be beaten, stoned, or killed.
You're homophobic, it's okay.
Let me illustrate something for you... The common denominator with most of the members here is that we're not closeted homosexuals (the membership here is either gay or straight). The major difference here is we're comfortable with ourselves enough to admit we have insecurities in a particular body part. Someone who decides to make fun of this ability to acknowledge this is not a masculine man, nor is he a man at all... He is a child. He is a child who giggles at seeing boobies in a movie, and fawns over a lesbian kiss scene...
I'm not being sensitive, I'm illustrating to you what you come across as to an intellectual.

BTW, those "gruff, secure, confident" men are the least secure and the least confident...
How so? by me helping many of them off the ledge of committing suicide or wanting to kill someone for hurting their feelings. By them beating their women, and abusing their children for questioning their authority, and by wanting to fight anyone who dares question their masculinity. Watching many of them drown themselves in alcohol instead facing an issue head on. That's a cowards way out, escapism... Face a situation that requires you to be vulnerable. You never get stronger if you don't allow yourself to feel pain.
Your idea of what is a "man" is skewed entirely. You're still a child, so I'll give you a pass
Maybe stick around and figure out what a real man says and you may grow into one.

Why exactly are you here at the gym jayparks1980? Do you plan on starting a routine or just continue to bait our great members? I'm leaning towards the latter of the two, esp. after reading your thread you started yesterday.
Oh, welcome to the gym. Happy gaining!Be a reflection of what you'd like to see in others.
