During my experience in the army that there was no way that opposite genders were going to be allowed to shower together. However that was about 20
years ago and to the best of my knowledge that hasn't changed.
From what I have been told, from a man in the Navy is that the men and women do not shower together. They have seperate place to use the bathroom,
bathe and sleep. Also that if men and/or women want to have a sexual relationship or be affectionate towards each other, then they have to hide and
not be seen.
When I was in Navy boot camp in 1992 I was forced to crap in front of the ladies that were in the restroom cleaning the facilities in a timely manner
as ordered. the interesting thing is that the toilet stalls did not have doors on them so they all could see you fine. In such circumstances it is
allowed for the men and women to must use only the facility. The women were very polite as I went on. You see, in boot camp you must follow orders.
That means if the ladies are ordered to clean the restroom, man or woman you are SOL. Men and women worked together at that time. Men and women can be
very accomadating to each other when necessary. I did not care at all to have the women see me carry out my personal buissness. I actually enjoyed
that opportunity of experience. I think that the military ought to include this in their training. Men and women seeing each other go would be a very
important asset in military training for better integration.
