there I was walking through to the pool for ds's swimming lesson ( thank God he had gone into the mens alone) and there was this sumo sized woman SQUATTING naked wiht flabby white arse using the GYMS hair dryer to blow dry her vagyinia

Rindercella Fri 20-Feb-09 13:14:22

shock shock shock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:14:24

Mintyy Fri 20-Feb-09 13:14:52


Would also like to add that I would say Yanbu if the woman in question was a slim and beautifully toned size 8 too.

crokky Fri 20-Feb-09 13:15:05

I think it was a bit grim to use a hairdryer belonging to the gym for this activity grin.

DaddyJ Fri 20-Feb-09 13:15:10

Isn't that a place in Eastern Europe?

ClaraDeLaNoche Fri 20-Feb-09 13:15:15

Was she using any styling products?

giraffescantdancethetango Fri 20-Feb-09 13:15:28


SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:15:35

I think (tbh) thaqt would have made it better, but no less unsanitary

god poor old ds could have seen it and thought we all do it.

and it wasnt her minge it was her ENTIRE under carriage

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:15:48

LOl at gel


pmsl daddyjgrin



ewww, are yousre hewasn't using it for something else?. 20p for a cheap thrill? lol

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:16:48

And this want any old municipal pool

this is "members" only (ahem)

some members are more equal than others it seems.

crokky Fri 20-Feb-09 13:17:56

However, I would like to add, when I started going out with DH (he was 20 at the time) he used a hairdryer to dry his entire "undercarriage" because MIL had told him that he MUST shock. I told him all his pieces would be fine with a towel, indeed probably better off. So there are people like this around!

moondog Fri 20-Feb-09 13:18:24


I can't even be doing with vigorous sawing towel motion many use over groin.

<steadies self>

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:18:27



HairyMuff Fri 20-Feb-09 13:20:32

Blimey was it that long she had to blow dry it?

<<looks down guiltily>>

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:21:05

Maybe ceolas can lend a fascinator?

now she was drying her womb i think

SobranieCocktail Fri 20-Feb-09 13:21:45

ROFL at drying womb

giraffescantdancethetango Fri 20-Feb-09 13:23:30

Isnt it dangerous to blow up your vag?

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:23:58

Maybe that is why she was so fat.

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 13:24:24

And I used to be a bit shock at women who used the hairdryers for their head hair with nothing on. Call me old fashioned, but why not get dressed first. I don't want to have to stand next to somebody who's happily drying their hair and watching their own tits in the mirror.

This is way too much for me [shudders].

SobranieCocktail Fri 20-Feb-09 13:24:30

LOLOL very funny thread!

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:24:55

I agree

gizmo Fri 20-Feb-09 13:25:10

Wot, inflated?

Did you stay to see what happened when she took the hairdryer away? Please don't tell me she deflated?

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:26:17

I am returning in 20 mins with a PIN

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 13:26:40

Lol at 'inflated'.

VanessaParody Fri 20-Feb-09 13:28:14

You certainly are being unreasonable. I think you sound quite inhibited and uptight tbh.

<hehe, runs off whilst vigourously scrubbing eyes>

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 13:28:51

God i am still seeing acres of white/pink arse

moondog Fri 20-Feb-09 13:29:32

I'm all for being inhibited and uptight in such situations.
Have no wish to see blowdried pubes or damp nipples.

MmeLindt Fri 20-Feb-09 13:29:50

I blowdry my hair (head hair only, I hasten to add) in the nude, but only at home. I don't know why, just habit I guess.

LOL at a fascinator

MmeLindt Fri 20-Feb-09 13:31:12

Try using a gym in Germany.

Lots of women vigourously showering, scrubbing minges and hairy arm pits.


MrsStig Fri 20-Feb-09 13:33:08

Maybe she gets a lot of water up there. It can happen if you have a weak pelvic floor.hmm

I got fed up with "boob job lady" Who always dried her hair topples. Just no need, love.

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 13:35:38

MmeLindt - perhaps I'm hopelessly behind the times or maybe it's too darn cold in my house.

LadyThompson Fri 20-Feb-09 13:37:00

Oh my Lord. Get the management to circulate an email to inform all members that rococo, rapunzel-style minges are SOOOO 1980s. Quite aside from the hazard of her blowing her fanny germs all over the shop, it's just so darn....ungroomed.

bratnav Fri 20-Feb-09 13:37:48

OMG how much hair must she have down there grin

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 13:39:17

LadyThompson - quite right, in my gym you could get your fanny waxed for under a tenner. Mind you, it wouldn't help here, she was drying the whole lot!

Simplysally Fri 20-Feb-09 13:40:08

Was she heating up the straighteners as well?


Must admit I tend to get changed in the cubicle if it's free to hide my saggy knickers gorgeous body. No need to make everyone jealous, now is there?

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 13:40:20

Hilarious! I love these threads.

Can I say here that if you've had a bad birth tear, drying your bits with a hairdryer can assist with healing - medics advise it.

Drying them in public, however...bleuuurrrrgh!

PMSL at 'deflated'!

Sheeta Fri 20-Feb-09 13:41:41

AGRH!! Tea all over the keyboard.


Simplysally Fri 20-Feb-09 13:42:05

I've never heard of that (not saying I don't believe you) but surely it's not very hygienic to use a shared hairdryer for that?

Think I'll towel dry my hair in future grin.

poopscoop Fri 20-Feb-09 13:45:30

pmsl at this thread - towels used in a sawing motion quote has played havoc with my pelvic floors grin

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 13:48:38

Simplysally - are you referring to my birth tear thing?

Sawing towels!!!!!!

donnie Fri 20-Feb-09 13:51:09

why don't you keep an eye out for her next week and lend her a can of elnett? that ought to do it.

AnnVan Fri 20-Feb-09 13:51:26

Oh good god!! Unfortunately I have a very vivid imagination. bleurgh.

Funny thread though grin

Simplysally Fri 20-Feb-09 13:52:09

Yes - what is it some sort of heat treatment?

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 13:56:54

Not completely sure, actually - a friend was recommended it her eye-watering 3rd degree tear. An ex-nurse friend of mine suggested it to me, too. I think the idea is that if you keep the wound dry it will heal more easily. Apparently my friend was doing it once a few weeks after giving birth when she had a rather prudish male friend visiting...yup, you guessed it! He walked in on her mid-blow-dry!

However, using public hairdryers is a definite NO! And I should think if you're doing it post-bathing there isn't going to be lots of germery flying round the room!

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 13:59:02

This is the perfect Friday afternoon thread. Thanks ladies.

ToiletRollCover Fri 20-Feb-09 13:59:36

Maybe it was a pubic wig? A merkin.

That is grim, but surely drying your hair topless makes sense. I get too hot and bothereed if I do it once I'm dressed.

foxinsocks Fri 20-Feb-09 14:00:58

was it the BWA? we haven't seen BWA for ages

can see if you had hugely hairy minge that you might need a bit of extra drying to avoid massive wet knicker problems ewwww

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 14:04:21

If it was a mirkin surely she'd have whipped it off and hung it on a coat hook first?

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 14:05:03

Did she use a comb to create a lovely parting?

ByTheSea Fri 20-Feb-09 14:07:08

Bwaahhaaaaa. What a visual I'm getting!

ToiletRollCover Fri 20-Feb-09 14:08:15

Pmsl @ merkin on a coat hook!!!!!!!! grin

This thread has cheered me up lol!

I admit i dry my head hair topless, get to hot and bothered. am waxed down there so no need to blow dry lol.

GetOrfMoiLand Fri 20-Feb-09 14:08:49

Who are these women who walk around gyms naked? Why oh why would they do that?

Ditto drying standing legs akimbo, one foot on floor, one foot up on a bench, drying their legs all whilst talking to their (equally naked) friend about what petrol station sells the cheapest petrol that week (etc).


foxinsocks Fri 20-Feb-09 14:10:10

oh I'm always naked in the gym. How do you get your clothes off without becoming naked at some point?

MmeLindt Fri 20-Feb-09 14:10:24

We had one woman in my gym back in Germany who would put body cream on everywhere in the middle of the changing room.

I never knew where to look

Zaftig Fri 20-Feb-09 14:15:09

Eww ewww ewwwwwwwww. That is just so wrong. grin

But I do dry my hair topless (at home not in public!!) or else my wet hair soaks my top. See, sensible. wink

I always go into the changing rooms to get changed after i've showered

brimfull Fri 20-Feb-09 14:16:35

It's the walking around naked chatting to friends,see saw drying of minge with string hanging out that makes me ill.
I am also shocked at the amount of completely bald minges I see.
I am waiting for ds to comment on it.

ThePregnantHedgeWitch Fri 20-Feb-09 14:19:00

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 14:19:00

foxinsocks, you're supposed to do it under a smock. See? Easy. grin

Minge + strings!

<<rolls off chair clutching sides>>

CatchaStar Fri 20-Feb-09 14:20:01

That has just made me laugh so hard, I thought my lunch was going to come back up!


LadyThompson Fri 20-Feb-09 14:22:14

And what, pray, is shocking about a bald minge? What shocks me are the sheer volume of fanny barnets that are so lustrous that they could have that look with the beads that Bo Derek sported in '10'

Sassybeast Fri 20-Feb-09 14:23:50

eww eww eww - warm moist folds of flesh ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 14:23:59

Actually, LadyT, I do have a lustrous, beaded minge. grin

I must admit I find The New Yorker bald minge look odd: it's like becoming a little girl again.

IotasCat Fri 20-Feb-09 14:24:03

Mmelindt- oh yes the naked creaming followed by the naked waving of limbs presumably to dry them before putting on clothes.

Too much for me thank god I've packed in my membership!

LadyThompson Fri 20-Feb-09 14:26:54

Never been a particular fan of the hairy minge. Think I was traumatised by reading it being referred at as an 'artist's beard' in a book I was too young to be reading.

brimfull Fri 20-Feb-09 14:28:07

hair on miinge is normal non?
obviously not down to ones knees but baldness is def not normal

BitOfFun Fri 20-Feb-09 14:29:56

Our gym used to have a hair salon attached- I always wondered what they were doing in there...grin

Sassybeast Fri 20-Feb-09 14:31:41

Actually, now my poor mind is polluted it brings to mind a sketch by Billy Connoly - he was asking what would happen if your pubic hair just kept on growing and you didn't trim it ? I'm a short back and sides kind of gal, but if you DON'T trim the beast, how long does it get ? Is it abit like head hair which sort of stops growing after a while?

Is a minge still a minge if it is hairless? Either coiffured or notgrin

brimfull Fri 20-Feb-09 14:34:27

sassy I find when I can tie it in a ponytail it's time for the chop

foxinsocks Fri 20-Feb-09 14:35:13

yes hairy minges normal

certainly are in my gym

think the naked ones look prepubescent and cold (unless they happen to actually be prepubescent and cold)

You lot have obviously never used communal washrooms on the continent. Drying the undercarriage with a hair dryer would be the least of your worries.

You know what? I am staggered to find myself saying this, but it would not bother me one bit (though I would not use said hair dryer ever again for fear of what it had touched).

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 14:44:56

I don't find Billy Connolly funny at the best of times but that is quite witty.

Reminds me of when I shaved my underarms this week, having got a bit lazy for a couple of weeks. It had grown long enough, thank you very much. (Think you can get away with it more easily when you're dark-skinned with dark hair; besides, it is winter - what better eco-friendly way to stay warm? wink)

Flargle Fri 20-Feb-09 14:47:13


Flargle Fri 20-Feb-09 14:48:06

I am never using a communal hairdryer again.

I'm even suspicious of my hairdresser now. And he's bald.

stinkymonkey Fri 20-Feb-09 14:49:01

Did she by any chance have a tattoo on her bum as well? I am always astonished at the way every single woman getting changed at the gym (apart from me) seems to have a booty tatt. Sometimes wonder if I have missed the law that made arse branding compulsory and if I am in danger of being arrested by gym police for lack of tatt.

Habbibu Fri 20-Feb-09 14:50:19

Am surprised by the fear of nekkidness displayed here - I mean, you have to put cream on naked, don't you? Not much point in a beautifully moisturised jumper, is there?

And I'd say pubic hair is normal - haven't seen any baldness in any gyms I've been too. Why are so many women squeamish about other women's naked bodies? I barely register anything about them.

tinseltot Fri 20-Feb-09 14:51:08

Urrrgh. How horrid. Just imagine if her oh had blown his balls up her the night before. Could easily end up with a situation where jizz drips all over the hair dryer nozzle!

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 15:15:10

Tinsel shock. faints.

ClaraDeLaNoche Fri 20-Feb-09 15:17:05

Yes Tinsel I'm afraid there is nothing anyone else can add to that. Am in shocked silence. And maybe suffering PTSD.

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 15:17:58

Sorry, that wasn't meant to be a link.

I put cream on, but I do it in my bra and pants. Nice and sensible, my mum would be proud. I have even dried my hair in my bra to avoid getting hot and bothered, but I keep my modesty. I don't mind being naked in the changing room, but I don't think other people particularly want a naked catwalk show so I dress quickly. Does that make me a prude?

LadyGooGoo Fri 20-Feb-09 15:19:30

Gaaaghhhh!! Is it only me worrying about the heat of the hairdryer, can't stand it next to my ears, let alone my ovaries...dehydrated shrivelled genetalia shock

Am going for a lie down now..

<<edges aways from laptop clutching crotch protectively>>

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 15:19:40

Momentarily confused by 'I have even dried my hair in my bra'...huh? Hairy boobs?


tinseltot Fri 20-Feb-09 15:20:28

Sorry to shock girls. But someone had to voice the unthinkable! grin

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 15:20:34

Yes, I have a problem with that.

TheThoughtPolice Fri 20-Feb-09 15:21:17

'blown his balls up her'

Charming hmm

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 15:21:37

a chest merkin MMH. wink

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 15:22:00

You need this, Wizzka! grin

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 15:22:23

Tinsel, you got away with that comment didn't you. That could have been a real thread stopper.

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 15:24:09

That was a particularly vile comment from Tinsel. Nasty. Please, let's move on before someone else passes out!

pinkmagic1 Fri 20-Feb-09 15:24:27

shock thats absolutely disgusting, she has no shame whatsoever!

mrsmaidamess Fri 20-Feb-09 15:25:11

I struggled to maintain eyecontact with an acquaintence in the gym changing room, who while totally starkers, put her leg up on the sink surround while she was applying body lotion and chatting to me.

It was enough to put a gal off her Shredded Wheat.

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 15:28:41

Mrsmaidamess, you've reminded me of an event which a friend of mine witnessed - drunk fierce female media company MD at Xmas party stomps into men's loos, pins foot to wall above urinal, unzips, pees into bowl.


gingernutlover Fri 20-Feb-09 15:30:49

now come on, everyone knows you have to get your hair completely dry BEFORE you use straighteners, otherwise you stay (short and) curly!


very very funny thread

i thought the walking round naked and drying your head hair was as bad as it gets. S o glad i concelled my gym membership if this is the way those places are going.

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 15:30:56

My goodness MMH, I couldn't do that and I do yoga.

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 15:32:23

Wizzkid, I don't think it was about agility; I think it was the booze that gave her the balls to do it!!

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 15:34:33

Reckon it would trickle down my leg.

nannyL Fri 20-Feb-09 15:35:54


that is hilaroiuse!!!!!!!!!!

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 15:38:30

Mine too, Wizz. She must have had a pelvic floor like a trampoline!

100 messages and minge in the title - I knew I should never have opened this thread but oh no on I plunged and am suitable mentally scarred.

I've always rejected gym membership because of the cost and the sheer stress of communal exercise. I didn't know there was communal nudity and up close viewing of other women's grooming routines! They should put that in brochures! <<<shudder>>>

Ivykaty44 Fri 20-Feb-09 15:44:39

Apparently there was a man drying his feet with the hairdryer at the gym - perhaps it was her dh? I was told this today wasn't peeping in the gents wink

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 15:45:49

Probably just treating his athlete's foot, Ivy. Yum! grin

AnnVan Fri 20-Feb-09 16:03:42

Ok I feel rather ill at the mental images conjured by tinsel's post.
<<Runs for bathroom>>

MmeLindt Fri 20-Feb-09 16:09:51

The putting on of cream is not the problem, it was the massaging it into the genital area that I found a bit too much. Fair enough, if she had used a cubical but in full view of all in the changing room it was a bit shock

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 16:11:54

shock putting cream on her area?! Why would you do that in pubic public?

WilfSell Fri 20-Feb-09 16:12:05

ROFL! And there's no roundup today?! We'll have to bump for you for next week...

AbbyLou Fri 20-Feb-09 16:13:47

When I used to belong to quite a posh gym (before kids of course) my bf and i saw a similar thing once. We had just spent a very pleasant evening doing an aerobics class, having a swim and then sitting for what seemed like hours in the jacuzzi chatting. When we walked into the changing rooms, there, completely naked, was a woman with one leg up on the bench where you sit to get dressed, inserting a tampon!
It made me feel quite peculiar!

daftpunk Fri 20-Feb-09 16:15:13

hey op.....what you talking about it for?

either complain to the manager of the gym if you think it's a health & safety issue....or, put it out of your mind, your just prolonging your pain starting a thread about it....

WilfSell Fri 20-Feb-09 16:16:07

Fuck. It's all lentil weavers falling over themselves to show the gym going public how very enlightened they are.

I'd like to see her do that thing where you stop paying attention to the hairdryer and a few bits of hair get caught in the wrong end.

Then she'd have a bit of a singed minge I think.

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 16:19:56

Daftpunk - but its the thread of the day. It has made me laugh anyway.

daftpunk Fri 20-Feb-09 16:22:42 sense of humour is too sophisticated for alot of the "fuuny" threads on here....

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 16:26:15

Singed Minge!

<<falls off chair again>>

Wigglesworth Fri 20-Feb-09 16:28:45

Maybe she gets off on it and can't afford a rampant rabbit, I hope she wiped it after she used it, ewwwww.

Tn0g Fri 20-Feb-09 16:30:18

She wants to be careful, those drier things canget pretty hot, she could end up with a singed minge.

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 16:30:26


That is too much. Wigglesworth, you are being unnecessary.


Tn0g Fri 20-Feb-09 16:31:06

I really need to read thread thoroughly..

Ivykaty44 Fri 20-Feb-09 16:33:13

She thinks she has a hot pussy, not singed minge

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 16:34:13

Alright, alright! Simmer down!

Wizzska Fri 20-Feb-09 16:35:21

Daftpunk - I think you're a secret genital dryer. wink Was it you?

tinseltot Fri 20-Feb-09 16:38:00

wilfself - rofl at singed minge! Would have been no less than the filthy creature deserved. What a shameful way to treat public property!

Ivykaty44 Fri 20-Feb-09 16:38:05

I bet her dp says she is full of hot air..

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 16:41:01

it wasnt a BWA
it was a big mottled pink arse for those who want to imagine it!

Habbibu Fri 20-Feb-09 16:42:10

Ah, MmeLindt. Well, that's a bit odd, yes. However, I have psoriasis, so when I put cream on it has to go everywhere - inc the bits that underwear covers. Am waiting for horrified MN post about the horrible scaly lady putting cream on her arse in the changing room... and no cubicles in our uni gym, so not much choice.

roflmao..this thread is funny...
am trying to figure out what sort of hairdryer it is...because, well, it can't be one attached to the wall I suppose grin

and grin at Lindt....I have you know, that dispite being german I started shaving armpits and legs and stuff at a very young age.....surely most women under 40 do that in Germany? I know the older generation probably doesn't...

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 16:44:06

its one permanmenlty "plugged" in to the wall - but no plug
have texted all mates
do not use dryer on rhs

Wigglesworth Fri 20-Feb-09 16:46:07

The credit crunch has hit us all, vibrators aren't cheap you know.


<<ventures on to thread and attempts to put the case for the defence>>

Maybe it was dry for help?

<<runs away again very fast>>

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 16:52:07

Habbibu - pmsl at 'scaly lady' comment!

I'm scaly too (though my eczema's improving, and not before its time!) but thankfully my 'Lady' is crust-free!

Stayingsunnygirl Fri 20-Feb-09 16:52:15

I knew this thread when it had only two pages!!

I have never seen anyone do this at my gym - it's definitely an EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! moment!

But I have to ask - is it alright to dry my hair with my towel wrapped round me - 'cos I find that that way, I'm dry by the time my hair's dry - but I am always careful not to flash my flabby gorgeous body at anyone!

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 16:52:29

Oh, I'm so sorry, everyone!blush <<runs to bathroom>>

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 16:52:58

if you go to a gym with young birds they must laugh at your tits surely as I did when i was a youngster.

foxinsocks Fri 20-Feb-09 16:55:19

I don't know why people worry about being naked. I am always naked in the gym changing room because I am too badly co-ordinated to get dressed and try to cover up at the same time.

I would warn your mates off all the hairdryers. I bet she rotates which ones she uses depending on her mood. Am mighty impressed your hairdryers can pull down that far to get between her legs. Don't think ours could do that unless you did a handstand and used your feet to turn the hairdryer on.

Habbibu Fri 20-Feb-09 16:57:25

No, they laugh at my scales. True story: in shower at uni swimming pool years ago - in costume still, fwiw. Two vair vair posh gels (and this was in Glasgow, so quite unusual to have posh southern English girls) talking about the most fabulous hydrotherapy spa, oh darling it's just mahvellous for the skin, etc - at which point one drops her shampoo, sees me in (not quite all) my scaly glory, turns back to friend in some confusion and says "well, I suppose it wouldn't work for everyone".

Reader, I nearly wet myself laughing.

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 16:58:30



shock again

Ivykaty44 Fri 20-Feb-09 17:01:00

staysunny not unless you uncover your tits and sit on your towel on the stool or stand up. smile

Do not sit on stool in gym with bare fanny on seat! ewwwwww

shirleyfgirley Fri 20-Feb-09 17:07:01

that is hilarious, i won't even go swimming unless i have tamed my pubes specially for the occasion

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 17:25:52

I didnt even SEE her pudenda.

i was hyper ventialting into a brown bag at this point

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 17:26:50

or pudendum, lord I presume she had only ONE, maybe that was the issue! shock

MrsMerryHenry Fri 20-Feb-09 17:27:53


SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 17:28:23

"..............introducing........MULTI MINGE!

MmeLindt Fri 20-Feb-09 17:29:20

Yes, I have to admit that most German ladies my age (mid 30s) do shave but there were always a lot of elderly ladies using the gym during the day and the sights I saw ...

LOL at singed minge

Do you think there is a large bottomed mumsnetter out there looking at her pc screen right in horrified self recognition whilst with one hand she gently scratches her singed.......?

lol...oh I believe ya...rofl

My gym has brand new changing rooms with private shower cubicles (I finally found them) and individual changing rooms and yet women still insist on creaming up their legs in the middle of the room, whilst stark naked. NO NEED.

There is a woman I see every single Monday at swimming, she strips naked in the shower - and then dries her nipples under the drier while still naked.

AND after aqua a gaggle of women swarm into the small communal shower naked and chat. Then they all get dressed together (into PJs natch), they are so open, I don't think I could chat to my mate as I rather graphically dried my chuff, but they can. I have never seen so much minge/nipple on a Wednesday evening.

In fact I have never seen so much nakedness before I joined the gym.

Spillage21 Fri 20-Feb-09 17:47:39

Thinking about Tinsel's earlier comment there could have been potential for an awful electrocution situation if there had!

My Mum used to say that if you didn't dry your bits properly they'll go rusty, maybe she heard that too and is taking it literally!

tinseltot Fri 20-Feb-09 18:09:51

God, i'd dare to guess that that would be a new one for the poor paramedics to have to deal with .........

nbee84 Fri 20-Feb-09 18:26:13

blush admits to drying her minge with a hairdryer blush

but only at home in private!

Gets it so much dryer than a towel alone grin

Have only had a waxed minge once - didn't like it, felt like a little prepubescent girl.

Did she straighten it too?

Nbee - Are you sure it's just at home???? hmm

<<psssssst - op! Nip over here and look at Nbee's posterior - is it anything like the lightly grilled and mottled backside you were forced to observe this am?>>

mrsflowerpot Fri 20-Feb-09 18:54:58

There used to be an elderly man in dh's gym who would regularly blow dry his nethers in full view of the whole changing room. DH says he would sort of lift and separate it all to get properly dry too.

MaryHinge Fri 20-Feb-09 19:11:09

I object to being the talk of Mumsnet.


Wolfcub Fri 20-Feb-09 19:30:08

PMSL, Yanbu

smittenkitten Fri 20-Feb-09 19:42:36

i once saw a woman blow drying her minge at the gym and ruffling it to give it root lift shock. i don't know if she had used styling products before she started. she also had one leg up on a stool and was facing the whole changing room.

it was one of the more bizarre exhibitionist things i've ever seen.

Kimi Fri 20-Feb-09 19:49:59

Did the smell of smoked haddock waft past????

MmeLindt Fri 20-Feb-09 19:56:13

Why do they get changed into PJs at the gym?

Kimi Fri 20-Feb-09 20:11:33

Have you ever noticed it it the real mingers that parade it about as well.......

varicoseveined Fri 20-Feb-09 20:29:42

Was having a crap day, and just reading the thread title alone made me literally LOL grin

frazzledoldbag Fri 20-Feb-09 20:40:20

Very nearly PMSL. Oh dear.

MaryHinge Fri 20-Feb-09 20:43:28

Who you calling an old minger.

<wafts flaps>


But 2 comments to make.

1. YES pubic hair does stop growing (or just curls up?). I had no idea you "had to" cut it until about age 27... say no more.

2. I am also horrified by all the nakedness, but secretly jealous - I would LOVE to be that relaxed about my body - does this mean they are all having great sex too?

- it IS Friday night after all, I'm allowed to mention sex!

That was supposed to be a disclaimer, not a link, arghh!

Iwanttobeamillionaire Fri 20-Feb-09 20:48:03

So funny! May now need counselling for the visions I am having lol!

potatofactory Fri 20-Feb-09 20:50:49

laughed a lot at sawing towels. Why? That can't be good - backwards and forwards. It was things like this that made me not want to grow up as a girl - thought I would get a MAHOOSIVE MINGE and have to saw it - just thought that's what you had to do. smile

Oh dear.I read out the title of this thread to dh and he misheard and thought she was drying YOUR minge SuperMario.grin.

Years ago I used to work in a dept store and one of my colleagues walked into the customer loos to be confronted by a stark naked woman 'angling'herself under the hand dryer.Security identified her as a prostitute,who used to use the loos for a quick wash and dry between customers.shock

ROFL at this thread . I work in a gym and have seen many sights must say it is mostly the older generation with saggy nips and greying minges that seen to stand around naked chatting to everyone! You reminded me of am incident that happened when i first started had to warn a member to stop taking her lady shaver into the sauna while wearing a thong! need i say more! Oh and there was also the strange lady who got barred by very obviously getting her kicks from the jet bubbles in the jacuzzi! Her excuse was she was recently divorced and lonely!

smurfgirl Fri 20-Feb-09 22:04:21

MmeLindt - it finishes at 8.30 so I assume they put pjs on at the pool to avoid having to change into them later.

But frankly its ridiculous seeing women in spotty/flowery/pooh bear pjs withour a bra at 8.30 at the gym.

SuperMario Fri 20-Feb-09 22:04:57

oh no.
they need some tracky bottoms and a hoody

LynetteScavo Fri 20-Feb-09 22:05:38

Do minges go grey?

When we were in 6th form my friend worked in an old peoples home, and no matter how much we pleaded, she would never reveal if you went grey down there.

IotasCat Fri 20-Feb-09 22:07:23

Of course minges go grey

Take it from me - they go grey. grin

Ivykaty44 Fri 20-Feb-09 22:12:53

OMG I put my dd in a hoody and tracky bottoms after swimming - she is 10. They are way to old for this type of behaviour - out in public in your PJ's hmm

Yes minges go grey and they dont call old men wrinkles for nothing wink eeewwww

Pristina Fri 20-Feb-09 22:22:22

Really gross. YANBU. I cannot bear normal changing room nudity. Was traumatised as a young girl by seeing saggy, wrinkly oldies letting it all hang out in the communal shower. Yuk.

Ivykaty44 Fri 20-Feb-09 22:37:45

So all of you that dont do nudity and are forever covering up in the changing room - why dont you just go home dirtygrin and grab a shower there?

I couldn't give to monkeys tbh and no one pervs in the changing rooms anyhow so what does it matter everyone is to busy getting changed to take much notice of the next naked person - it only when they stand waving their fanny at a dryer that you cant help but notice.

Believe me ivykaty - after reading this thread I will always be showering at home! Apart from anything else I can't be arsed to lug all the styling products around that are apparently de rigeur.

Ivykaty44 Fri 20-Feb-09 22:48:41


I dont bother with styling products, just strip, shower, dry, cloth and go - in about 15 minutes max. There are girls at the dryers when I finish my class that are still there when I leave with my kit!

scrooged Fri 20-Feb-09 22:50:23

PMSL! I've not laughed this much in months. Thankyou grin

Are they blowdrying their fanjos Ivy? It must be an epidemic - isolate the victims and force them to put their knickers on whilst still damp!

LynetteScavo Fri 20-Feb-09 23:16:04

My down thier drys of very quickly. I can't see any need to blow dry.

scrooged Fri 20-Feb-09 23:17:13

Maybe it was on cold and she was! Eww!

lollipopz Fri 20-Feb-09 23:30:17

Maybe gym should put a sign up? something along the lines of 'Due to health and safety/hygiene reasons no muff fluffing allowed'?

I think one saying'No ladies. Just no ok - you know what we mean!' would be a bit more universal. You don't want the muffless brigade (as discussed some thousand posts ago) thinking it's still ok to toast their crumpets just because there's no butter on there!

Clary Sat 21-Feb-09 00:32:27

pmsl at thread title alone.

WHY would you do that????


Have been laughing at this thread till my eyes watered and my tummy hurts (remember that?)

Thanks all grin

ChippingIn Sat 21-Feb-09 00:55:56

Northern Lurker.... crumpets...butter...WMSL

Haven't managed to read whole thread, but I am wondering how she did this. Every public hairdryer I've seen in swimming pools has been fixed to the wall at shoulder height with about a 20cm hose to the blowdry nozzle. I now have an imageof the woman doing a shoulder stand to get her "bits" close enough to the dryer to get at them!

Oh and she should try it at our pool - communal changing area (with cubicles, obviously) and the dryers are within sight of the cash desk!

BonzoDoodah Sat 21-Feb-09 12:43:43

my DH just said ... "bit of a public Blow job!"

grin at this thread.

Are you really going to avoid that hairdryer now? Do you really think it will be contaminated in any way? I mean, hairdryers blow away right?

fartmeistergeneral Sat 21-Feb-09 12:59:36

Loving the attention to detail! Cos you know, if you don't blow dry it straight away, it can get a bit frizzy and out of control. These things are important.

betsyxx Sat 21-Feb-09 13:53:01

definately not i would of lost the plot, especially as our changers are 4 kids too, so no i dont think you are being unreasonable hun wink

expatinscotland Sat 21-Feb-09 14:18:37

'Have you ever noticed it it the real mingers that parade it about as well....... '


It's not just about being naked, it's about being naked AND ugly and making sure everyone knows it.

Yeah, way cool. NOT.

flaminhell Sat 21-Feb-09 14:22:36

My Lord, some people are just flamin weird, she obviously needs a little trim if a blow dryer is needed.

yanbu, she is a pube flasher.

leoleosuperstar Sat 21-Feb-09 15:02:47

When I worked at a gym we had a 'muscle fairy' that would walk round the mens changing rooms in cowboy boots and nothing else. Then posing in front of the mirrors flexing his muscles!

I would like to also add the boots had a small man heel on them....

This is 100% true..

stocious Sat 21-Feb-09 20:08:13

She was maybe drying her skin, not her pubic hair. I think fat people can get infections and things if they don't dry themselves properly, especially where the skin creases or rubs together.

Mumsnet can be pretty cruel sometimes ... but I wouldn't like to share a hair dryer with this woman, it's just not nice.

MrsMcCluskey Sat 21-Feb-09 20:23:10

Will be checking the drier for stray pubes next time I go to the gym.
One of the haidriers was wrapped in a paper bag today, maybe it was clogged up.

nappyaddict Sat 21-Feb-09 20:24:43

has anyone linked to this yet?

ChippingIn Sun 22-Feb-09 00:53:12

stocious - I don't care why she feels she wants/needs to do this... she should not be doing it in a public changing room - end of. If she has 'drying issues' she can deal with them once she gets home and as she was 'squatting' I seriously doubt she is so obese that she needs to take these measures....

expatinscotland Sun 22-Feb-09 01:03:11

The gyms here actually provide a hair dryer?

I'd have never known.

Haven't set foot in one in about 8 years but I don't use the showers in those things and, bar a few times, never have.

Have to pack too much kit. Including my own damn hair dryer.

Tinsel, that's got to be the boakiest post I've ever read on MN, and I been around .

pmsl at this thread grin love 'no muff fluffing allowed' pmsl!!
<<wipes eyes>>


To broach the point made earlier about medical advice re blowdying your undercarriage - I can remember being told some salacious gossip about a girl from school who had contracted such a horrific STD she was hospitalised and had to dry her fanjo with a hairdryer. Can't remember any other details (well apart from her name) but this bit of (TM)Information has haunted me for 20 yrs.

morethan1 Sun 22-Feb-09 01:33:16

Sisterhood eh. Feminism implodes right now.

HappyandEiknowit Sun 22-Feb-09 01:42:08

PMSL @ this threadgringrin certainly brightened this dreary nightgrin

maybe she mis-read the 'public hair-dryer' signgrin she might have thought "oh what wonders of modern convenience a PUBIC hair-dryer" grin sort of a drying equivalent of a bidaygrin

still supremely vomit-worthy!!grin

How disgusting and undignified, I'm not sure which is worse.

Oh my god. Ewwww.

TomNook Sun 22-Feb-09 13:14:33

Its spreading like wildfire locally. I wouldn;t be suprised if the rumour comes back to me that I was drying my minge legs akimbo. grin
