to expect a woman not to sit and do her hair and make up stark naked in the changing rooms

I don't mind her strutting naked around the changing rooms at the gym

I can even live with her standing naked in front of the mirror and drying her muff with the hair dryer

What I do object to though is her sitting on the stools naked and doing her hair and make-up.

I think it's unhygienic and I don't want to sit there afterwards.

we have had many a thread on the muff drying!

ha ha I wouldn't know where to look but I admire her confidence! shock

Agree she could throw a pair of knickers on though before sitting herself down on the chairs.

drying muff with a hair dryer?????????? shock

TheBalladofGayTony Wed 23-Sep-09 11:36:53

forgot to say yes, sitting on the stool is abit icky.

Oh bloody hell, I just spat my cuppa on the laptop! shock

Thats just really odd!

Definitely, positively, 100% sure you are not BU.

Is it the first time you've seen her or is she a regular?
How old is this woman? Is there a chance she might be a completely mad old bat!? grin

She is showing off. "Ooh look how comfortable I am in my own skin".

I wouldn't worry too much about the hygiene issue, changing rooms are all rank anyway.

minge drying

YANBU. strutting naked = ok. Minge drying and sitting on stools naked = a step too far.

Ewww I would not sit on her fanny batter and I would take my flash wipes to them as soon as she'd gotten up.

That is gross.

Thanks tonygay. I have never heard of this strange practice. No one does it at our local swimming pool - although there are two very good reasons why not. The dryers are wall mounted so they'd have to handstand and most Swiss women seem to prefer to depilate (to the amusement of my dd 'Mum why hasn't that lady got a hairy fanny'?)

Loving that Meggle carries Flash Wipes for just this very purpose!

It's a fairly posh spa and gym.

The lady seems a bit odd all round - she wonders around the gym and doesn't really seem to use any of the equipment wiht any enthusiasm. I find her a bit 'starey'. She wears odd gym clothese as well - think 60s gym mistress.

She's certainly not a 6 foot beauty keen to show off her physique - she's a short, slightly overweight Asian lady.

She spends an awful lot of time there and has been a member for years. When tlaking with others - everyone knows whom I'm talking about.

Dophus Wed 23-Sep-09 13:16:42

GayTony - just looked at you link... so this lady is not alone!

ErnestTheBavarian Wed 23-Sep-09 13:19:08

ok, living in Germany, there are nudy beaches, campsites, even parts of the city parl nudy bits everywhere. Can someone explain re the charmingly put 'fanny batter' on chairs, how does it work? Presumably hygene issues also apply here. Do nudists carry towels around to sit on? What do they due during AF? DOes your nudey gym lady do the same during AF? I don't understand

Dophus Wed 23-Sep-09 13:20:32

Christ - hadn't even thoguht about AF - ooooh!

I think she's probably too old.

Do the ladies in Germany show their strings?

Megglevache Wed 23-Sep-09 13:22:19

Drying with a hairdryer? You'll be telling me next that there are folks who style/gelle and spray too.

Rindercella Wed 23-Sep-09 13:22:54

grin at fanny batter <and yuk too>

OP, YANBU.

Deeeja Wed 23-Sep-09 13:23:38

Eeeeeeeeewwww!
YANBU
I feel a bit ill at the thought
YUCK!!

I hate being in my gym changing rooms after 8.30am - there's an influx of elderly women who seem to spend the majority of their time in there standing around completely starkers discussing the weather.

Would definitely be avoiding the stools in your gym, Dophus.

Dophus Wed 23-Sep-09 13:25:55

Do I have grounds for complaint? and on what grounds?

'being a bit bloody odd'
'not wanting to see her blow dryed muff?'
or hte slightly more rational... 'it's bloody unhygenic'

(no pun intended)

I can see the signs on the mirror now?

CMOTdibbler Wed 23-Sep-09 13:26:52

Naturists always carry a towel around to sit on - male and female. It's considered very bad manners not to

TheBalladofGayTony Wed 23-Sep-09 13:35:10

why don't they just wear knickers?

Salleroo Wed 23-Sep-09 13:36:01

Two words 'Dirt bird' grin

Does she leave a little wet streak on the stool? That is by far the most disturbing aspect of her 'toilette'.

I know it's been done before but do people actually have so much pubic hair that it requires a blow dry? Or is she just teasing it into a shape and style?
