My first time being naked with others and being really aware and conscious about it was aged 11/12 when we move from primary to secondary school. The first day at the school and I was given the timetable it said "PE , please do not forget your towel "
So PE day came round and we all got changed . Girls in one changing room and boys in another . That was my first surprise . At primary school we all just used to get changed in the classroom together.
I was wearing a bra and had periods by the age of 10 but thought nothing of stripping off to knickers and bra and putting shorts and t-shirt on in front of the boys , girls and in that very last year an older male teacher too.
At secondary school I noticed a shower area on opening day but never gave it a second thought . They were old . It was freezing cold in there and the lesson schedule was tight .
So when the teacher said with 15mins to go after a hockey session it was time to go in and shower I was a bit surprised .
We were told to strip , place our towels in the holders and the two older female PE teachers stood each end and watched as you showered . They were freezing . There were showers 6 each side of a tiled walkway , so 12 girls could shower at once . The only time you got away with it was if you were on your period. They would write it down so you could never fool them.
They would watch to make sure you washed everywhere . If you got out too quickly they would send you back through to wash again.
That was the first time I was naked with others .
My girls go to that same school . Those showers are still there but they never have to take a towel to shower after PE . They say there isn't enough time .
