I’ve been a gym member for three weeks now. It’s a gym near Stratford that’s very convenient for me – I get to go in the morning, when it’s all quiet, and then head into work.
The sad thing about this gym is that the showers are not communal – they are separated by cabins with doors! One of the best things in the world – one of the most erotic things – is when men shower next to each other. It’s a communion thing, a brotherhood… there’s nothing quite like it! This gym slightly makes up for it by having a changing space that’s communal, so you can still sneak a peek, but it’s still a disappointment – it’s not like my previous gym by Bethnal Green, where things could happen in the showers (but hardly ever did as there was nobody about in the mornings when I went.)
I’m enjoying getting back into shape, switching between the gym and jogs in the area.
After my gym sessions I drop by Stratford’s public toilet. There’s always a line up to get in! Last time, there was a tall, big daddy type – shaved head, glasses, horny stare and big hands. He stared at me while he dried his hands.
