There’s something about locker rooms.
Ah yes, the locker room. The location of many young gay boys’ darkest fears and deepest desires. If I had a dollar for every coming-of-age moment that occurred in these wet and sweaty quarters I’d be very rich indeed.
In celebration of the locker room, we have compiled a collection of gifs from all the best locker room scenes from movies and TV. The kind of scenes 10-year-old you would stay up late in the hopes of seeing on TV. Scenes that I’m sure many of you have turned to in a time of great need. So without further ado…
We’re kicking off the list strong with KJ Apa, because honestly, we couldn’t resist. If there’s a gay out there that can resist this dreamy New Zealander, I’d like to meet him.
Tom of Finland
We love a Tom of Finland moment and the gym locker room scene shared between Jack and Doug was too adorable (and hot) not to include. After a sweaty cruising session at the gym, the pair bond after they realize they both have a Tom of Finland drawing hanging in their locker.
I Know What You Did Last Summer
I couldn’t help but include a teen horror movie in here. Locker rooms and teen horrors go hand-in-hand, and Ryan Phillippe’s shower scene in I Know What You Did Last Summer was an instant classic.
This 2006 classic is a solid go-to for the swimming admirers in all of us. I can’t say I remember anything else from this movie beyond the copious amounts of shirtless men.

If you’re in the mood for something a little less guilty and a little more pleasure, why not try Handsome Devil? This 2017 movie, set in Ireland, follows Ned and Connor as they navigate homophobia at a rugby-obsessed boarding school.
If you’re looking for something a little more full-frontal, you can’t get much further than Euphoria. You might already be familiar with the locker room scene, which in all likelihood set a record for most peen on screen. If you don’t believe us, get counting for yourself. Also…Jacob Elordi. I mean, come on.
