We've heard stories, we've seen it on TV shows but have any of you ever had to actually show after gym class? Because I never did and no one I know ever did, at least I think not (not that the topic comes up regularly). So was it something that existed in like the 1970s and stopped come the 80s for obvious reasons or are high schools just different throughout the land?

EDIT: I stupidly misclicked the poll. I went to high school in the late 90s/early 00s, not the 80s

I went to HS from 96-00 and we were required to shower after gym. If we didn't, they took us down a letter grade.

I went to HS in the late 90s and NO ONE showered after gym class. and NO ONE showered in the clubhouse/locker room after practice and games for baseball

then again, we barely did shit for gym class in high school. especially if you were active in a sport that season. they barely cared.

YES every day when I had gym I showered... The gym teacher told me if I wanted extra credit that I should take a shower at the end of his class I passed with an A++. Still till this day I wonder why there were full length mirrors in the shower

I went to HS from 91-95, the first two years we were in the old school (build in the early 1900s). Our gym teacher said he didn't know what was growing in the shower, and didn't care whether or not we showered. In IN we only have to take 2 semesters of gym.

high school from 97-01.

we had showers, but it was optional. i would rather smell for the rest of the day than shower with other guys.

No, never, and I never would.

I think that was strictly a jock thing. Like if you were on the football team or the wrestling team, you would shower with the other repressed homos with overbearing macho fathers and pretend like you didn't want to suck each other off. Fags.

No. There was no time to shower after class. I also didn't work that hard. Besides, anyone who gets sweaty playing volley ball is just trying too hard.

Thank God, never. I went to high school in the late 80's. Considering the amount of later-confirmed homosexuals that were in my class, I am even more grateful.

No because they never gave us enough time to shower. I hated that shit because I used to take fencing as a PE elective and we would get all sweaty and shit in those flap jackets so we'd end up stinking for the rest of the day.

I went to high school in 97-01, and there were showers in the locker room, but I dont think anyone ever used them..................................
...................actually, the soccer team came back from a game once and used them. I don't know if they always used them, or if they just did that day, but I always thought the showers were broken until that day. I'm happy no one in my gym classes ever used them, though. That would be awkward.

Like a bunch of the others, we didn't have time to shower. About all we did in gym was play basketball, so it didn't take alot to build up a good sweat. I ended up fighting with the coach because I had gym 1st period and didn't want to stink all fuckin' day. Me and three others ended up getting to leave five whole minutes early to shower. I just didn't want to smell like a knitter all day.

graduated in '98. I took gym and did wrestling every year of high shcool. Not once did i jump in the shower with the other guys. I went home took a shower, then would go skate and play hockey till like 8 or so then take another shower. I would take 3 showers in a day sometimes.

We didn't have gym class if you played a sport that season in HS. In middle school though, we were required to shower after gym, and our creepy teacher would stand outside of the showers and throw us towels as we were coming out. It was weird. What was even weirder though, was that in high school, we rarely showered after hockey practice/games unless people couldn't go home before whatever else they had to do. I don't know if you've ever been around a hockey player after a skate, but it's probably the worst smell you can have out of any sport.

I threw my old pads on the floor after a long skate. My dog came and sniffed the pads... then started rolling in them. It was just like he had found a dead carcass and was doing his best to cover himself in the stench.
