    Actually I do get offended if I can see the outline of his junk. Now if he was FINE that is another story!!!!

    Yes I do think there is a difference. I see cleavage (tight tops, plunging necklines) everyday on women. It is rare that I see a man's junk bouncing up and down and around at the gym.

    There is a dude at my gym who wears a full spandex outfit in white with an extra bright white patch over the crotch area. He is also overly dramatic and enthusiastic about his workouts. It is much more entertaining than offensive.

    Yeah I usually do this, but I forgot my shorts the other day and got some weird looks from a few of the women

    Speaking for myself only, generally speaking, no I am not offended by men wearing spandex, but it depends on how tight the spandex is.

    I think most guys at my gym wear regular shorts on top of their compression garments, though.

    Well it's because you wore this

    Offend? I don't think it's the world's most aesthetically pleasing choice for even the dedicated gym-goer, but I suppose it's comfortable to work out in, so please yourself on that one as far as I am concerned.

    Then again, I'm a swimmer and God knows it's impossible for nut-huggers to look anything but absurd on the average swimmer's body, and it's pretty much required for the sport. So, I don't get tied up in knots about what people wear unless it smells bad or has spikes that interfere with MY workout, ya know?

    As long as both nuts are in the bag. I will never forget the old guy who sat navel deep on the stairs with one of them on the outside, whilst I was diving with friends nearby.

    Personally, I think that unless you are planning on doing some kind of sporting activity where wearing skin tight clothing is advantageous (cycling, football) then nothing should fit tight on a man's lower half unless your wearing a jock strap or it's covered by looser fitting material. Just seems weird and leads to awkward situations if you can't control your manly appendage. Now, compression shirts are a different story but guys, it's not a good idea to wear one if your sporting a serious belly or just don't have the physique for it. It's smells of desperation for attention, but to each their own.

    Not particularly. I prefer it to be not tattered and thin, but no, I wouldn't be offended. If it does what it's supposed to do, why would I be?
    That said,
    I did have an eww experience a few years ago. I was at the gym at 6am. just a couple folks were there. A competitive body builder arrived early and decided to do some "poses". He took of his gym attire (in front of me) and was just there in his tighty whiteys. He stood there and posed looked at himself in the mirror. Pretty well right next to me (in a huge gym with mirrors on 2 walls and mirrors upstairs). Anyway, they were rather old tighty whiteys which was bad enough, but then he...umm... liked what he saw. And became quite "happy" with himself. And he kept posing. Turning to this side and that. Flexing and enjoying the view of him and the tent in his thin tighty whiteys. THAT was a bit too much. lol

    By itself? I've personally never seen that except for spinners....in that instance no. But if some dude is lifting in spandex and no shorts over, I'd probably roll my eyes. I don't need or want to see that.

    That's what I thought until I saw this guy at the gym and his was loose in the crotch area and his LITTLE wee wee was bouncing up and down! I was like "Eeeeeewwwwwwwww!!!!"

    I'm confused as to why this question needs to be asked. Why would anyone find this offensive?

    While there IS a difference ... its' not for the one you listed.
    You're just conditioned to seeing one verses another- and it's horribly offensive that you base the validation of someone to wear an article clothing on YOU"RE subjective level of attractiveness.


    Secondly- the difference is that breasts are not a sexual organ. where's a penis is.

    Thirdly
    That's what I thought until I saw this guy at the gym and his was loose in the crotch area and his LITTLE wee wee was bouncing up and down! I was like "Eeeeeewwwwwwwww!!!!"

    what are you five? grow the hell up.



    Fourthly- no- mind your own business- I don't care. as long as he isn't pitching a tent- he can wear whatever he wants.

    I don't care to get a pretty good idea about what's going on in the junk area. Put some shorts over that thing!

    Nope. But then, I grew up with 2 brothers and I have 3 sons and a husband who have declared our house "pants optional". Wouldn't even faze me. :|

    By spandex? No. Clingy yoga pants with no undies? Yes. I had the unfortunate experience of seeing that once and that was enough.

    Quite frankly, I don't really study what guys wear at the gym. As long as they are wearing something to cover their unmentionables and it is decent and unobtrusive, it's all good. I'm too busy with what I'm doing to worry too much about what others are doing (except to get ideas on better exercises to enhance my own routine).

    No.
    And if I was, it's not mine to decide anyway, what he's wearing. I can just look somewhere else and do my workout. I'm there to sweat, not worry about other people's junk.
