Dear Bwog: Is Nude Small Talk “A Thing”?

Dear Bwog,

I just ran into my TA, stark naked, leaving the Dodge showers. I still had my towel on. At the time it wasn’t weird, and we just sorta automatically smiled and said hello in passing. After the fact, it’s a little weird. What do I do?

Perplexed Penis Peeker

Dear PPP,

First, breathe. Second, let Bwog breathe. We’ve handled TA issues before, but not like this.

You saw a penis you weren’t supposed to see. There’s a right way to handle this and a wrong way to handle this. As difficult as this might seem, the solution is just to not talk about it. Don’t talk about it to your friends (the last thing you want is a bad double entendre made around said TA) and don’t talk about it to your TA (for obvious reasons).

You did nothing wrong. Ostensibly, if you spend enough time in the Dodge locker room, you will see some penises. This one just happens to belong to somebody you know who has power over you—at least until the end of the semester.

So, for the next few months, you’ll see your fully clothed TA in discussion sections and office hours. Play it cool. Do your reading, keep your head down, and say intelligent things. Your TA wants to ignore this as much or more than you do.

Think about it: he knows that you know which of the two of you has a bigger penis. Knowledge is power. If you handle this maturely, he’ll appreciate that. It could have been worse.

We believe in you,

    "Think about it: he knows that you know which of the two of you has a bigger penis."

    One of the funniest things I've read on Bwog, but I feel like a creep for quoting it...

    As a TA, this is one of my greatest fears.

    If you were straight, you wouldn't care.

    Funniest thing. I wonder if the TA reads bwog. Then the TA would know that this person saw his junk and was worried about it.


  7. Uhh  

    If the TA had the self confidence to parade around the locker room in the nude, I'm pretty certain he doesn't care what people (even his students) think of his penis. So "your TA wants to ignore this as much or more than you do" might be a little over-reaching and assuming a very specific perspective.

    What about when you've seen your *ahem* elderly female professor wandering around the women's locker room naked? Hmm?
    Some things cannot be unseen.

    I wish I saw my TA from last semester's penis :(

  12. Who cares?

    Did seeing a penis really cause you this much distress? Dude, relax. It's just a dick. Go think about how to cure cancer or something.
