An occupational hazard of being a teacher in a smallish, very remote city is that you constantly run into students, past and present, teacher colleagues and parents of students when out in public.
As a gay man who's really "out there", I think that the challenge is even greater. I work hard to avoid awkward situations with men from my school community, whether in the locker room, on the online hookup sites or in the bedroom.
Several times a week, I go to the athletic complex early in the morning before heading to school. While there, I soak in the whirlpool tub, sit in the scorching-hot sauna, have a shower and get dressed for school.
With our frigid temperatures, it just feels good to have the heat soak right into my bones... it's so different from my own polar bathroom. I rarely swim my laps at this time; I don't have the time and I'm usually too preoccupied with school matters to "zone out" while swimming.
And unllike other times of the day, I am NOT there for the eye candy. The only men in the locker room on early weekday mornings are +70 years old. I generally avert my eyes to avoid looking at them.
But yesterday, I went into the communal shower room to see an gorgeous, fully-naked young man showering with his back to me. What a pleasant surprise!
Twink-ish with smooth, tawny-coloured, glistening skin, a perky bum with well-defined indentations on either side of his ass cheeks and long black hair which he was washing.
The young man turned around to reveal a lean torso, abs and a lovely, above-average sized uncut cock. And then....
"Oh my fucking GOD!! That's Shane!!"
The naked hottie was a grade 11 student in my period one class who sits front-row centre. "Yikes!!" With a Swedish mother and an Asian father, Shane was absolutely beautiful; tall and lean with shoulder-length black hair, high cheekbones and dark Asian eyes.
I realized that Shane must have dropped his mother off at the nearby restaurant where she and my daughter work as cooks and stopped in for a shower on the way to school. Small town connections!
It was so incredibly awkward! Luckily, he was washing his hair with his eyes closed so I don't think he spotted me. I turned off my shower and literally ran from the room, threw my clothes on and fled the building.
An hour later at school, I couldn't even look at him in class knowing what he looked like naked. I feel like such an old perv. :-|
