TO SHOWER, OR NOT TO SHOWER
(A Muscle Essay)
Say hello or HOLA, to Mr. Anton Fraga Nistal. Anton has a bod sculpted just like The David, here in Florence, Italy. Hours of work and dedication in both the kitchen and gym shaped it. His muscle and physique is enough to make Michelangelo jump into a time machine and give him a fist bump.
MILANO411 is proud to select one of our readers and friends of the site to closeout our 1st annual David Issue. Anton is muscle athlete that looks at his bod as a creation of art and not afraid to show it off. This is to be admired.
The David isn’t about nudity. The David is about PRIDE. To be proud of what you have. Not ashamed. Not like New-Age Americano Gym-Goers, who remove underwear under towels the same way FEMALES remove panties. Mocking old men that walk around naked. First, mocking any senior citizen is bad. But second, surrendering the American locker room to the seniors is sad and also a very bad statement on AMERICANO HYGIENE.
Sorry American Bros, we’ve been watching you when you travel to The Boot and have a lot of concern at our local gyms. Americans are easy to spot in a gym (palestra) in Italy. Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milano too! Why. This is why:
- No talking, not even a smile. Even if we don’t speak English, we smile and try to talk to you. Doing the international fist bump.
- No EYE Contact. We see this all the time! Why are you’re feet so interesting?
- Head down when you walk to the showers. Are you afraid to look at a naked man? Stop comparing going to the gym to Gay Porn. Gay porn is an entertainment product or media. The shower and Jock Culture belong to the jock and are centuries old.
- LASTLY, the underwear under the towel. We Italians are starting to think American men aren’t masculine or like to look like woman removing panties or thong under skirt.
- One more thing, leaving the gym without showering! Again, this is really gross to us. Italy is a densely packed country. When you don’t shower you carry all the bacteria back to your cars and trucks. Then home to your woman. Pussy and bacteria, everyone’s favorite. We say that last sentence with realism, and a lot sarcasm; followed by a good glass of Italian wine. We also bring up this point to make fun, but also for age-old Italian love of women in all their lovely shapes, colors, and Diva Attitudes too. If you love you’re women, PLEASE TAKE A SHOWER AT THE GYM!
BE THE DAVID. The David stands proud. He knows he’s a man. He’s so manly, he went to battle a giant completely naked. That’s like going to a street fight in Vegas or Atlantic City or New Orleans, butt ass naked! Takes a real man with balls.
So in synopsis. The male body is art. The male body is you. Show it off and don’t be shy. You busted your ass in the gym for it. And don’t give us the dumb ass statement we’ve heard for about 5 years now in Milan and Italy. It is:
“Well, there’s no girls in the locker room!”
OUR ANSWER: They’re have never been women in the locker room with the exception of the movie Porky’s, Starship Troopers (those bugs – yuck!), and porno. There are no women, normally, in the men’s locker room at a US military base. Yet those men show no shame and only PRIDE….
