This looks more athletic than military.

  1. The men uniformly seem better built than what you would expect in a segment of the male population chosen at random for a military induction exam. But that leaves the question: what was going on here?

    1. Nearly all high school and college sports programs have required a physical of some sort since about 1960. I think this is a lineup for one of those.

    2. In high school (9 through 12) we had an annual physical in the boys' lockerroom. We stripped stood in a line, the doc thumped our chests, listened to our heartbeat, checked us for hernias (as in turn your head and cough), and had us uncut guys skin back to check for clean heads, then we sat and he did a knee relex check. I don't recall anyone being particularly traumatised by it.

    3. In the 90s, it was sports programs, but not gym class. Kids also weren't required to shower, and most schools just didn't leave enough time to.

      All of this was pedopanic and fears over bullying, of course. Even though country boys regularly saw each other naked at ponds with no ill effects, and most of us planned to join the military, these fears were more primarily of the suburban "soccer mom" variety.

      It just happens 90s soccer moms became Karens after 9/11 and never left that state.

  2. There was a video going around several years ago that simply showed college wrestlers weighing in after stripping down completely. It ran about an hour, and was totally in black & white (I guess it was from many years ago). This pic looks like it might have come from that video, but I'm not sure. It was an amazing shoot of one gorgeous athletic guy after another. Even tho there was a soundtrack, there was no commentator, nor story to it, nothing sexual. Yet somehow, still intriguing .....

  3. Its a still from A candid Franco film called Straight of the Matt. It is of college wrestlers being weighed in and given fully nude skin checks prior to the wrestling match. Its from the early 1990s and its on XTUBE. Search candid locker room. Franco made several films before he was caught and sent to prison.

    1. It's also color. I knew it wasn't that old.

      It was on PornHub, if it still is then there's a double standard.

    2. It's not even vintage in my world. I'll probably delete it after everyone is done with this discussion.
