Tom Brady, Howard Stern discuss being naked in NFL locker rooms
Subscriber Account active since. On April 2, while promoting his appearance on Howard Stern, Tom Brady tweeted he would "let loose" in the interview. On Wednesday, Brady joined Stern for two hours, discussing a variety of topics, from his departure from New England , marriage hurdles , and relationship with President Donald Trump. In typical fashion, Stern got Brady to open up on perhaps the strangest part of an athlete's job: showering and getting dressed in a room with dozens of other men. A man's a man.
Part of my fear also came from my same-sex attraction — the fear for potential arousal. In middle school and high school, I avoided the locker room as much as possible. If I did have to change, I picked a locker that afforded me the least opportunity to be near other people. I was curious how the other guys looked but also ashamed and scared to be around them or be seen in my nakedness. Living in the undergrad dorms at a conservative Christian college helped me see other guys less mysteriously, as some of them were more casual in their nudity.
Swimming laps and spending time on the treadmill are not things I enjoy. As I often tell the folks at the front desk of the health club where I spend time each week, the best part about being there is leaving. As you might expect, my gym has a locker room where I shower and dress. It has always been my understanding that this was a sanctuary, of sorts. But sometimes, not so much.
