    I know, thats why I started this tread because every time I go swimming there is always some wrinkly old woman drying her bits. The poor children in the changing rooms dont know where to look lol
    But we'll all be like that some day
    I actually cried when I saw my first naked wrinkly old woman. I was a kid then and she stepped out of the shower naked and was drying herself. I didn't know what to think and kept crying.

    I am so glad I don't have a mental image of that.

    I am sure you will never look like that, no doubt you will age gracefully

    That's not so bad.. I'm just scared my mind will deteriorate and I'll be senile.

    I used to work in a day centre for elderly people and all they did was moan and wear about ten jumpers as the complain about the cold when its the hottest day of the year. I just don't want to end like that and be in a day centre or even worse a residential home. .

    To be fair though, some old people are really priceless... with the best hearts and solid brains.

    i usually put on my stuff under my clothes before i go so i just have to take my outer clothes off. we dont have many cubicles so ill have noe if there is one, if not i just do my best with a towel!
    Yeah, I usually have my swimming costume on under my clothes. When I was a kid, I also unfortunately had the occasional time when there was an old woman showering. I just looked down on the floor most of the time.

    Noooo, stay back, i hate swimming.

    how do you know you hate it if you've never swum (swam?) properly?
    and it would of course be easier for anyone to change in public if they had their cossies on underneath their clothes, something i used to do a lot, to speed things up. and it's easier for boys in any case, they only have one region to concern themselves with.


    lilsunflower, i agree totally with the horror that is old scary naked women- yeeeeuuugghhh i shudder when i think about it now. they also annoy me because they swim too slowly in the lanes, forcing me to go into the main pool where the kids try to bungee jump onto me whenever i'm near the deep end.

    I had a really horrible time once when I was working at a festival in Wales. We had a loo in our truck but the shower didn't work, so I had to go & use the festival showers, which were in a sort of manky sports club. The toilet was disgusting, there was no bin so loads of women had just piled their used towels & tampons up next tio the toilet - URRRGH

    the showers were communal & had no door & i am quite an inhibited person in that way so that was really not fun, I was the only person there most of the time but people walking past the doorway could see me and this little girl was staring at me

    plus I didn't have a towel so my helpful boss had given me........ a roll of kitchen roll to use instead.

    it was not very fun.

    Well i can swim about 100m, but that's nothing so i don't really count it. I just hate water and swimming, and the sea, etc etc

    Oh goodness... now that just reminds me of my traumatic experience upon seeing naked women.

    Btw, I think mixed-gender communal bathrooms are the worst of the lot. My friend who's going to Brown Uni (US) told me that her loos will be mixed-gendered... *shudders*....

    Reminds me of Ally McBeal!

    I've been having swimming lessons since January and luckily they have cubicles. I don't see why i should charge men to see my body and then let women see my wobbly bits for free!
