Gym/steam room etiquette

What is the general thought on a jockstrap in the steam room/sauna? Post workout at the gym, jock or no jock? The gym I occasionally attend, where at 52 I'm one of the younger visitors, jockstraps are not uncommon. I have worn mine into both the sauna and steam room but I'm wondering if I broke some unmentioned rule by doing so. I showered in my jock before entering and sat on a towel. No one has ever said anything or looked twice. I even had a man in his 70's comment that he was glad the jockstrap wasn't dead. And, it's an everyday scene of a small group of old men having a conversation in the nude in the the locker room. So, I don't think it's an issue. I'm just curious about everyone's thoughts.

At my gym, the clean towels supplied are available at the entrance to the tiled area (open gang showers, steam, sauna, Jacuzzi) from the locker room. Lots of us strip down at the lockers, then walk naked to pick up a towel or two upon entering the wet area. While a few guys will wear gym shorts, swimwear, etc. into the wet area, almost everyone naturally showers naked. Some of these showers have stall dividers/curtains, the rest are open gang shower heads. We each seem to have our own comfort level with varying degrees of public nudity! It’s all good !

Like the FDR quote from the Great Depression!
Don’t quite understand the “fear” in being naked/mostly naked, except that it possibly represents a vulnerabilty. Yes, we probably wouldn’t want to walk naked in a snowstorm, or play a football game naked, but a gender-segregated shower spa environment presents no apparent physical threats. What IS there to fear? This is surely a matter of overcoming “fear itself!”

Shyness is horrible. Gotta feel it to know. I know the difference now and glad that much more open about nudity.

I've never been to a gym with a sauna, so I'm not sure there.
However, I always strip down completely before putting on/taking off my jock. I walk naked to the showers, towel hanging around my neck. A few old guys do the same. Most guys my age don't even shower, let alone jocking up.
I'm 32.
I go on a lot of cruises, and many of the better ships still have both a steam room and sauna, plus of course plunge pools or larger pools to pop into and cool off between sauna and steam room sessions. Jocks are always the best thing no matter what else you might want to put on.
