Men drying luxuriant pubes with gym hairdryers: Ben Dunne says NOOOO, rips dryers from walls

Oh god I nearly burst my heart laughing when I heard about this.  Himself burst through the door on his return from work, wild of eye and loosening his tie as though it were strangling him.

“Jesus Christ, here’s one for your blog” he proclaimed.  In a hilarious Michael O’Leary type stunt, Ben Dunne has initiated some cuts in the services offered in his male changing rooms.  He’s taken out all the hairdryers because something horrific* was happening with them, in a blatant breach of gym etiquette.

“I’m not beating about the bush here”  Dunne said firmly on Newstalk, explaining that on a recent tour of his gyms he noticed that men were not using the hairdryers in the changing rooms for the hair on their heads.  No, it was hairy balls that were being lovingly caressed with the heat of the blow driers and pubes that were being styled.

When you see people using a hairdryer on other parts of their bodies and then putting it back, there is no way you can allow that to go on in any business. I will not allow that to go on in my business.” said Dunne firmly to the Indo.

At least it’s better than disgusting see saw toweling, or balls and willy towels though surely?

*not really that horrific

    They should just tilt hand-drier down.

    My hubby saw this very thing happen at our gym! Heave

  • I heard this today and burst out laughing. Although I was thinking “typical…”

  • My brothers used to do this at home, that & microwave their socks & jocks (soz, Kirstie)for toasty underkrackers. They’d BATE me for telling though, even now…

  • Jess says:

    HA! They have a sign up on the desk at the Carlisle one saying that they removed the hairdryers in the men’s because of an ‘electrical problem’ and I was wondering why it was only in the men’s locker room!
    TELL US THE SORDID TRUTH CARLISLE!

    ps, this just made my evening..

    My boyfriend has witnessed this in a Ben Dunne gym actually. I’d much rather seeing a man towelling his balls then using a blow dryer. Not only is it unhygienic for the next person who uses it, but it’s blowing crotch germs and pubes everywhere. YUCK!

    What is wrong with these men??? Do they do that at home???! Surely it burns their bits???????? I’ve often over heated my scalp…….

  • @CherrySue: What?!?!?! I will brain my son if he does that! I don’t mind the hairdryer stunt to much, Sure I do it on the kids now already: put the dryer down their shirts and trousers for a few seconds to warm them up, especially on cold days :)

    CROTCH GERMS!! I thought I couldn’t laugh any more!

  • Julie says:

    OMG HAHAH! My boyfriend goes to that gym and was telling me about it – said he nearly CHOKED when he saw people doing it! Its siiiick!

  • See, I don’t see the problem with this. I’ve never done it now, it wouldn’t occur to me. But…how is it unhygenic? Surely they’re simply blowing hot air at themselves, the actual hairdryer, the appliance, doesn’t touch off the balls or hair. Surely? I’d imagine they hold it a foot or half a foot away and just give it a blast of air. How is that different to holding it a foot away from your elbow and giving it a blast of air?

    If it was a hair straightener now, I could see, as the appliance would be touching balls and hair and penises. But the hair dryer is just blowing hot air around.

    I really don’t get Dunne’s indignation about this. Obviously, I’m not stupid, it’s a PR stunt, but I didn’t understand why he went for this as a ‘ew how disgusting’ thing? Is it really that disgusting?

    If you’re worried about germs, well, sorry to break it to you, but those same balls and penises have just been in the swimming pool with you. RIGHT NEXT TO YOU! You’re all sharing the same water, spitting it out, letting it run over your exema and your spots and boils. Why is that perfectly ok but someone holding a hair dryer a foot away from their navel is vile?
