To have quite enjoyed watching the young men from the swimming club train this afternoon?

It's swimming lesson night for my DC.

I take them to the the edge of the pool and then retire to the viewing area, as instructed.

The pool has 8 lanes, my Dc are in the 2 lanes furthest from me at the opposite side of the pool. Lanes 4,5,6 are occupied by some of the most beautifully built young men I've ever seen and I did get a bit distracted from my DC's lessons!

I don't think I was letching, more admiring (both bodies and swimming ability actually - it was beautiful to watch) and in my defence I did think they were adults to start with, but as there were a group of mothers waiting to drive them home, I suspect they night not have quite been men!

Would you have watched - difficult not to, as in my direct line of vision, but would you?

Gah! hmm slightly odd OP...imagine if you reversed the sexes!

I know, I though exactly that, but how could you not watch?

You were admiring bodies belonging to people of an age likley to have mothers drive them to and from swimming lessons?! Are you serious?

If this were a site full of Dad's, and there had been a bunch of well developed 14 year old girls at the pool, would you still think it appropriate to ask this question?

I don't think YABU.

Bodies can be beautiful, especially in action. You weren't sitting there going "wow I'd shag that"

People fancy young, fit people.

hummmmmmmmmmmm i had this problem with that werewolf boy from twilight when someone told me how old he was when i had been shamelessly perving over him.
i had to tell myself i didnt know and he didnt look his age and he was physically beautiful. no harm in having a mmmmmmmmmmm moment i dont think.

Op says she was admiring their physique, not thinking about shagging them ffs....

See I am about (yet again) to make a shameful confession on MN.

My DS does a sport. The club he does it at has young men in their 20's training. When I was in my mid-thirties and he had just started training there I did used to watch and appreciate the fit young male specimens.

blush

And one of the coaches was definitely on the I'd do him list. blush again

20's is not driven home by their mum's age. Admire, OK, lust after, NO WAY!! Agree that if this was reversed there'd be uproar. Nothing wrong with looking, but depends what you thought when looking!?!

no possibility that they could have been very lucky older wives wink ?

seriously, it's as ohmyfucksy says.

You didn't do anything but look, and as you had no reference point about how old they were, your conscience couldn't be activated until later. YANBU.

BUT YABU if you go and perv next week.... wink

fuckmepinkandcallmerosie Mon 13-Jun-11 20:11:07

Admire the young guys, just in a look how fit they look (fit athletic not fit fit)

The coach, who was only 4 or 5 years younger than me, he was a phwoar. Sorry but he was. blush

He even chatted me up one day when he didn't know who I was and it was all very flattering and going rather well until DS ran past and went "hello mum"

I think physically fit bodies in action can be inspiring to watch in the sense that wow - (a) other people's bodies can do that (er.....mine generally can't); and (b) aesthetically beautiful in the same way as admiring art or architecture so I don't think there is something intrinsically wrong with admiration. Letching oversteps the mark though and would be really weird in my view.

I never understand why old people fancying young people doesn't make the old person feel older and less attractive (not directed at you OP just speculating on people like Peter Stringfellow et al)? The contrast just makes the old person look older?

I would have watched and probably asked the mums what they were training for, being nosey-like.

fuckmepinkandcallmerosie Mon 13-Jun-11 20:22:11

Hell - that's it exactly, it was an aesthetically beautiful thing with the young guys
