Draw a picture using a very thick crayon of a man in a shower - with the words *we can see your willy* in german

..he'll never know it's you

And with this picture?

Re: My daily striptease show

I love this forum when we go down this route (instead of asking where to buy potatoes or whatever)

Ref your comment on Weejams comment on your comment on his comment etc,
he's got a point there you know, philosophically speaking you can't ignore advice. You can choose to not act upon it though. Well no, actually you can't do that either, not acting is also an act and therefore you're rather buggered by receipt of the advice in the first place. My advice err, recomendation would be to shower in the middle of a forest, that way if any trees fall over (after perhaps being struck by lightening) you can hear the noise they may or may not make and report to the philosophers that still ponder this question.

I could enjoy the show if I was not mortified by the idea of being in his position.....
Hang on, you didn't mention the position before ... in which position is he? Is it always the same one?

A friend at work mentioned having a similar problem, but instead of just being in the shower her neighbour (female) keeps all of the curtains & shutters open, and wanders naked around the whole apartment while gathering her things in the morning ...

Hey, you did spend a lot of time gazing at his window. Did you manage to get out of the house on time?

Hi all,

A little while ago, I was looking by my window and I got a choc when I saw my neighbour taking his shower.... Because I can see e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!!!!

They have a sticker in the window to blur, but it obviously doesn't work.

Should I let them know?? I mean, if I was them, I will be mortified to have someone who tells me he can see me, But I will prefered to know.... I will surely not be able to look at him after knowing it....

We are 2 maybe 3 appartments who can see him. I thought to write a note but it means he will know it comes from one of us...

My husband is more in the ''we should not let them know'' statement. He said he will prefer to not know if it was him...

What do you think?
Is she fit? Clearly this is a deciding factor in deciding whether to end the free show or not.

EDIT - Aghhh it's a He? Tell him asap, weenies are ugly.

Re: My daily striptease show

Oh, Come on....

I didn't spend that much time....
It's a free show! Tell me, how much things is for free in this country? You take what you take when you can.... 'know what i'm sa'ing men?

Ok lets be serious. I really didn't watch that much, I'm fooling around. But yes, we can see him very well. And I'm still thinking we should tell him, but I feel so bad for him to know it.

Haha, this is a fun thread.

But seriously, to the OP - I wonder who's problem it really is...I think he knows he can be seen just does not care. If you think you cared in his position, it does not really make a difference. If you slip a note he might just think you are a prude with too much time to waste. In fact you might start a "conversation" he might be after, so I would watch out.

Now, from the often "nude" side - I always lived really really high up and nobody ever saw me running around naked, collecting things after or before shower. Cooking naked spares the clothes being dirty, by the time the oil touches the body it's usually cold. Cooking naked in a 60 degrees apartment at 11th floor makes it a bit more bearable.

Why should people care in privacy of their own home about somebody staring? It is up to them to either consider it safely private (hence you staring in don't matter, hun, I am sure he knows you can see him) or not private enough, but chances are that your idea of private and theirs don't match. Besides, our bathroom gets so moldy with the window only cracked open, we have to have it wide open, or else the paint flakes off..

When we moved, had a baby and could care less (and didn't have the cash, either) to put curtains all over our apartment, we ended up noticing folks from opposite houses, even an attorney office, having their daily peep show at our place, it was so irritating. Go after your business, bored people, I always thought. There was seminaked guy accross the streat hanging out the window most of the day staring at me and wiggling his tongue. He finally stopped after my husband hang out the window at him, haha.

How bored some folks are, around here, annoying. Just because the window is open or a shutter does not get closed tight, does not mean you are invited to gawk..I just did not want to become one of the households we have around, completely closed in, even on a sunny day, shutters constantly closed, scared somebody could see something..We were finally able to put some light curtains in, closed the shutters for most evenings, flicked off couple of the nosy bothersome peeps, and it's fine. People got the message we do not care about nosy guys.

I miss Holland, it was so nice being there. Where I stayed, people had no curtains, anywhere, nobody stared, eventhough everybody was living in bungallows, one could see everything, if anybody had the urge to look.. People respected other people's living spaces, busy themselves having other interests. Not everybody is an uptight person. Nudity is a normal thing unless you are forced to notice old exhibitionist geezers in the mountains or beaches, haha, but that's a public area, not somebody's home where people should do as they please, no matter of other folks idea of intimacy, privacy and safety. It might be, though, that people feel free to gawk here the same way they stare at others in the street. Just different culture thing..

Indeed so, sir!




We have, in fact, rather sneakily introduced DB to a cleverly concealed variant of The Game, the objective of which is to forget that it exists:
Rule 1: You are playing The Game.
Rule 2: Whenever you think about The Game, you lose, and must say "I lose.".
Rule 3: If anyone asks what you mean by "I lose", inform them of The Game and its rules, and welcome them into The Game. They are also now (and forever) playing.
Oops, I lose.

There's a free room for you at the big white rectangular building at the edge of town. They'll bring you there in a comfy white jacket with extra-long sleeves. Enjoy your stay.
