The Crazy Naked Lady In The Locker Room


I remember when I first started going to the gym eeeeeons ago in college, I was a little afraid of the locker room.

I mean, women parts everywhere.

I have since gotten used to it (thank goodness)!

I have even perfected ways to keep body parts covered at all times—included but not limited to:


  1. The booby trick: When changing from your regular bra to the sports bra just drop the two straps. Then proceed to put said sports bra on OVER the regular bra. Once complete, remove regular bra. See? No boobies shown.

  2. Lower area trick: Cover all areas with towel once you leave shower. Slip on underwear under towel. NO reason to take towel off! See? No women parts revealed.

Which brings me to today’s crazy experience:

After spin class and weights I was feeling So. Great.

Took my shower and while I was getting dressed I was casually eavesdropping on a trio of girls as they gossiped about their co-workers. (Apparently Ava is pregnant, and they ALL saw it coming)

One of them made a beeline for the exit and I thought that was kind of odd until she stood by the entrance.

The other did the same, the third girl was bent and looking for something in her gym bag.

I curiously looked at both of them and wondered what on earth could make them bolt to the other side of the locker room leaving their friend in the wind.


Then I saw it.


Me, of course not exactly the queen of discreet, sharply inhaled.

I was stunned!




Are you kidding me?

I honestly couldn’t believe it, and unlike a normal person who would hightail it out of there I kept getting ready refusing to let this lady bother me.

I stared at her, not at her unappealing body parts, but at her face so if I see her coming again I would know exactly who she was.

Weird part was…she was staring at me back!! As if she DARED me to say anything to her.

She was already losing in life with that display (in every sense of the word) so I let her be.

The trio of girls and I giggled all the way out the door. We were genuinely tickled by the crazy naked lady in the locker room.


What would you have done at the sight of the Bare Naked Lady in the locker room?

  1. I've never understood the crazy naked lady. In the gym I attend, the shower section is completely isolated then you come past the restroom before entering the general locker room. They've had ample time and spaces to cover up and yet they don't and it's never the woman with the banging body that makes you feel like you should go run another mile. Always the one that scorns you for I'm comfortable with nudity but I just think out of respect for others one should be a bit more considerate.

  2. I am maybe a bit too comfortable with nudity. The locker room and showers I am all for being baked. I don't walk around baked because of respect for others. But to just being laying out naked all sprawled out for the hell of it….go home. Lol

    I am cracking up at her "losing at life"! I would have kept on getting ready too. Let the crazyies be crazy!

    I would have continued getting dressed as usual. While I think this woman took it to an extreme, I must admit that I do envy her confidence to walk around nude and not give a damn about what anyone thinks about it. Regardless of how comfortable I am in my skin, I still wouldn't be airing out my dirty laundry she was though.

  5. Omg that sounds inappropriate to me…I probably would have complained if I was uncomfortable! There is a e an solace for everything and that may not be the place…in the sauna ok maybe but on the bench in the main locker room…not cool!!

  6. LOL @ the leg and her life! SMH. I use to be more conscious about covering up but I think I lost a lot of my modesty after giving birth. You won't find me laid out on the bench though. I will change quickly and swiftly while turning around.

  7. YES! It is ALWAYS the one with the not so desirable body parts. WHY?!

  8. LOL YESSSSS my poor eyes are still recovering

  9. I know, but sometimes I get a faint urge to stop the madness!

  10. We have one at our gym. I mean her body is banging and all, but DAYUM! I really really really don't want to see that mess! Put a towel over it! SHow some modesty!

    This is a funny post. But in all honesty, I have to give her props for not being bashful about her lady bits. I mean, we women can be the worst critics about how we each look, and what someone was wearing. Just the fact that she could lay there bare to to the world takes guts AND dare someone to say something to her.

    Is it that she is too comfortable with her birthday suit, are are we a society that is too prude.

    However….I my case, I would have just walked away too. Just because she's bold, doesn't mean that I am 😉

  12. Ha ha so true. (At least according to any of those TV documentaries that feature nudity) it seems that those with the undesirable parts are the most comfortable with their bodies. What's the deal?

    Laying down, legged propped up? That's BOLD! Your post made me laugh! That's inappropriate for her to just display her lady parts like that! Anyway, I also do the bra-to-sports bra changing trick.

    Visiting from SITS!

  14. I’m like you when I change at the gym….try to change as discreetly and showing as little skin as possible. I have no problem with other women being more comfortable letting it all out when they change, but this is just taking it to a whooooole other level!

  15. Ewwww. Not a look I’d want to see, plus I’m thinking the bench isn’t the cleanest thing in the world. Enjoy your SITS Day. As a teacher I’m always trying to get the kids to cover up their parts.

  16. I’m okay with nudity (I have two boys, I kind of have to be) but putting it all out there on display is a little distasteful IMHO!

  17. Ew. I would probably have gotten out of there ASAP.

  18. That’s so weird. Why do people do things like that? Seems like she was just looking for attention. I think I would have done what you did. Go on with my business and not give her the satisfaction that I was bothered by it. I hope she doesn’t make a habit of it!

    • Right?! I thought it was crazy odd behavior, and I’ve going to the gym for years and seen some stuff LOL thanks so much for stopping by on my SITS day!

  19. I would get the hell out of there as soon as I can. I honestly do not know how else to act in such situations. But this does sound hilarious. Thanks for sharing :)

  20. Ah … big deal. We’ve all got the same parts and some gals look GREAT nekkid — especially if they’ve been working it at the gym. Now, if it was a co-ed locker room, that might be a little weird! Enjoy your SITS Day.

    Happy SITS Day!

    OMG…The naked lady in the gym bathroom are my absolute pet peeve. I think that’s why I stopped going to the gym. The more expensive the gym like Equinoz in the city on 70 something street – (stars lke Bruce Willis frequent there) – the more bare they walk around the whole eeeeeeeeewwwww

  22. Ha ha! i don’t know what I would have done. Thrown a towel over her and ran? Maybe.

  23. Ok I had to giggle just a little here. I will never understand people who feel the need to flaunt their nakedness in a locker room! I would have bolted too. Just a little weird. Enjoy your SITS day!

  26. That is a very funny story! I am definitely not comfortable enough with nudity to ever do something like this. But you’re right, the fact that she looked you right in the face sounds like she was just daring you to say something!

  27. Ha! I see bare naked ladies at my gym all the time but never just laying out with their leg propped up. That is crazy.

  30. Haha! I can’t imagine. It’s been a while since I’ve been to an actual gym. I would think if I were in that situation I would just ignore the lady.
