Have you seen the new trailer for Dirty Grandpa, the film with DeNiro and Efron? (For some reason) They are in a situation where they are sharing a bed. Efron asks in a horrified tone, "Did you just get naked?" DeNiro answers, "It's the best way to sleep." Whereupon, Efron tucks the covers tightly around himself.
It's funny, but I take issue with the screenwriters. Now, granted I haven't watched the film, and the scene might continue with Grandpa imparting the information about breaking a boner. If that is indeed the case, I'll give them all due props - but something tells me that won't be the case. We all know about night-time boners, we should all know they can get trapped in clothing and break.
A busted boner is nothing to laugh about. The resultant scar tissue can leave you with a bend, and if severe enough could make any type of penetrative sex impossible, and even make jacking off difficult.
I was in the situation once to share a hotel bed with a friend. A group of us had traveled to see a friend's show. We tossed a coin; the ladies ended up sleeping on the floor and couch of the living room, while my buddy and I got the bedroom with it's single king-sized bed.
He watched me shuck my briefs and crawl under the sheet. He didn't say a word, but he got out of bed, dropped his briefs, and crawled in again.
We didn't engage in anything sexual. And there were no comments made about the morning boners, either - though we both certainly woke up with them and headed to the bathroom without hiding them.
Just because two men share a bed to sleep, doesn't mean they're going to engage in any sexual activity
That's the way it should be. Grown men - gay, straight, or bi - should be adult enough to share a bed. If you are secure enough in your masculinity, in your sexuality, being naked with another man in a non-sexual situation shouldn't be a problem. Years ago, it never seemed to be an issue.
So, what seems to be our problem now? My friend and I even shared the bathroom to provide time for the women to get showered and dressed.
These are the kind of things that all men should be knowledgeable enough about to remove any fear, or shame.
