We have all been there. We just finished our workout, muscles sore, sweaty and pumped up. It’s hard not to notice people or be noticed. Apparently there is some sort of unwritten rule where you have to get in and out as quickly as you can, but we have all lingered a little while longer to sneak a peek at the guy three lockers down. He is also sticking around just a little longer as well.
The art of cruising your gym is still a fine art none the less, and it comes down to movements, interaction, eye contact and visual cues. Let’s take the Jockstrap. It has been associated with sports and athletics since its conception. Let’s take that into consideration when we compare it to the days before when the Hanky Code was more closely observed. What you wear underneath your jeans, suit or shorts really does flag your intentions, and shows more about who you are, who you are observing, and more importantly, who you wouldn’t mind getting to know a little more…personally.
Since newer generations are not so familiar with the hanky code, underwear and jockstrap brands have been playing a significant role in the public cruising arena that is your fitness club. If you happen to see a rugged and hairy, beefy daddy in a Nasty Pig jockstrap, it’s likely that he wants you to know that he might be into a little more than your average “workout”.
Overall cruising of the locker room is just as much a sport as football, baseball or hockey. While some want to get in and out, others want to score. Those who do want to score, can easily send that message with how they gear up. Often the brand gives it away. It lets you know that they want to be looked at, and more importantly that they just might play on the same team.
Best of luck on your hunt!
