Camp Leader Embarrassment

I received a request from a very creative guy who suggested a scenario I’ve not considered before - he wanted a guy who’s gained a bit of a weight who’s a summer camp leader - and here it is! Keep your submissions coming!

Ben Jacobs had been best friends with Jason Lyle since they were eleven. They’d both been confident that they’d stay friends when they left high school and went to separate colleges and to ensure that happened, they both signed up to be camp leaders at the Lyle Summer Camp that Jason’s dad ran.
‘We’ll stay in touch right?’ Ben asked Jason, the weekend before they left for college.
‘Sure we will,’ Jason said with a nonchalant shrug. ‘We have camp together all next summer and it’ll be a blast.’
Ben knew he was right. He and Jason had always been tied at the hip since they’d first met. They were both average in every way; from looks to intelligence. If anything, Ben was slightly more attractive, whilst Jason was more intelligent.
Ben’s first year at college when by in a haze of classes, food and parties. He’d made a few close friends and was doing well in his studies. By the time the last semester of the year had finished, Ben wasn’t sure that he really wanted do the summer camp, but his parents were adamant that the fresh air, exercise and responsibility would do him some good.
If nothing else, Ben was really excited to see his best bud again and Jason was equally excited to see him.
The leaders at Lyle Summer Camp were told to arrive at 11am on the first day of camp. They would be settled in and have their orientation for two days before the fifty teenagers arrived.
When Ben’s dad dropped him off outside the main building, Jason ran outside to greet him.
‘Ben,’ he yelled as he pulled his best friend into a bear hug.
‘Hey Jace,’ Ben said with a grin.
‘Looks like someone enjoyed the college cafeteria,’ Jason said with a chuckle as he patted Ben’s stomach.
Ben frowned slightly, but waved the comment away. ‘It looks like college agrees with you, bud. You’re stacked.’
Jason had clearly been working out during their year apart and had gone from Mr. Average to Mr Hunk. He was now toned and muscular with a new haircut that made him look like some sort of movie star. Ben had to admit that he looked great!
The two of them chatted non-stop as Jason led Ben to the cabin they’d be sharing for the summer.
‘Okay, dude, your uniforms are on your bed. Get unpacked and then meet me back at the main building.’
The cabin was small, but comfortable. There were two single beds, a couple of bedside cabinets, a small wardrobe each and a tiny bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet.
As Ben started unpacking, he noticed the full length mirror at the end of the beds and Jason’s comment suddenly came back to him.
Ben didn’t look much different facially. He had the same untidy brown hair, the same blue eyes and strong jaw, but his body had maybe changed some. His broad shoulders now covered a frame that was a bit on the chubby side. At 5’10, the freshman 15 had definitely changed his average body to one that was a bit chunky. He didn’t have moobs, but he certainly had a bit of a gut and his once muscular thighs had chunked out a bit and his nicely rounded ass had turned into a seriously ample bubble butt.
‘I never noticed,’ Ben said as he rubbed his gut and checked out his ass in the mirror. ‘I haven’t changed that much.’
Once he was unpacked, Ben headed over to the main building and joined the other camp leaders. Ben really enjoyed getting to see the camp and learning how to lead the activities and it was great to spend time with Jason again. However, the other 3 camp leaders didn’t seem as friendly as his best friend. The other three guys were built like Jason and after stuffing his face in the cafeteria buffet, Ben was feeling more and more insecure about his body; something that the other leaders had no problem in pointing out.
But, Ben refused to let it get him down. He didn’t want the body of a Greek god. He was happy being him. Who cared if he’d gotten a little chunky – it didn’t impact him so what was the big deal?
However, the following morning, Ben couldn’t have been more wrong. The big deal was that both he and Jason had given the sizes for their uniforms when they’d signed up. Jason had had the foresight to get a bigger size with his muscle gain, but Ben … Ben was stuck with a medium shirt and 34 inch waist shorts.
Ben hadn’t considered the sizes on his uniform until he woke up and finished his shower. Jason had already headed off for breakfast so Ben dropped his towel and pulled on a pair of slightly tatty Calvin Klein briefs. He grabbed the khaki coloured polo shirt and pulled it on, before glancing at the mirror with a confused expression.
The shirt was snug to say the least. It hugged him like a second skin and only just covered his gut, but as soon as he stretched a little, he’d flash some skin.
‘Better keep this pulled down,’ he said with a frown.
Ben grabbed the shorts and stepped into them, before pulling them up to his thighs. He struggled with the thin khaki material as he yanked them over his chunkier thighs, but his biggest problem was his ass. As he turned around and looked in the mirror, his briefs barely covered his crack and he couldn’t believe how huge his bubble butt had become. He’d always had a well-shaped ass, but now it was massive.
With a lot of sweating and moaning, Ben finally got the shorts over his ass and done up, but they dug into his hips and clung tightly to his ample ass.
‘I’ll just ask Jason’s dad if they have some bigger uniforms and I’ll try and keep my shirt down. I’ll be fine.’
Ben’s optimism was quickly shattered when he met up with the other camp leaders. The comments about his uniform and the size of his butt made him feel even more self-conscious, which wasn’t helped when he yawned and put his arms above his head, flashing his belly to the others.
Thankfully, Ben got to escape the other leaders as soon as the kids arrived. The camp was for boys aged 15-18, so Ben and Jason weren’t a lot older than some of the guys they were responsible for.
Each leader was allocated ten of the teenagers and the first day was a simple matter of showing them to their sleeping quarters and the cafeteria, leaving them to socialise, explore and settle in.
‘When do we get to go to the lake, Ben?’ one of the guys asked as he lead them to their sleeping quarters.
‘I’ll be taking you guys down there tomorrow,’ Ben said with a smile. ‘So, I hope you’ve all remembered your swim kit.’
‘Will you be swimming with us?’ a different guy asked.
‘Ummm sure.’
‘Sweet, we get to see whales,’ the first guy said.
The boys all laughed and Ben blushed. ‘Very funny. Now, let me show you into your sleeping cabin.’
Ben was so flustered by the whale comment that he dropped the key. He bent down to grab it and struggled to pick it up from the ground.
Meanwhile, the ten guys behind him were treated to the sight of his shorts and briefs riding down half way over his huge ass, his slightly furry butt crack on full display.
‘Nice crack, Camp Leader Ben!’
‘Yeah, put it away, fat ass!’
Ben quickly stood up, his face beet red. He tugged his shirt down and tried to pull his shorts back into place, but without success.
‘Okay, everyone pick a bed,’ Ben said as he pushed the double doors open and stepped back.
The boys ran past him, which gave Ben the opportunity to tug his shorts back into place. The shorts were so snug that Ben couldn’t get his hand under the waistband to yank his briefs up, so he had to settle for pulling up the shorts over his fuzzy cheeks, leaving his briefs bunched up halfway down his butt.
Once the boys were arguing over who had which bed, they had completely dropped Ben’s embarrassing plumber’s crack moment. They spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the grounds whilst Ben prepped their activities for the rest of the week.
The following day, Ben woke slightly late. He grabbed his swim bag and pulled on his snug uniform before heading to breakfast. The other camp leaders were mercifully nice to him during the meal, which was a relief after his embarrassment the day before.
Ben managed to see Jason’s dad and briefly asked him if they had any other uniforms.
‘Sorry, Ben, but I only order them in when I need them. Looks like you could do with a bigger size. I can order one in, but it’ll take a couple of weeks.’
Ben felt determined that a couple of weeks of activities with his group would burn the pounds off, so he waved the offer away and went to meet his group.
‘Okay, guys, we’re heading down to the lake for a swim and some games this morning. Then, we’ll be back here for lunch and you’ll have the afternoon to yourselves. Has everyone got their swim kit?’
All the boys nodded and Ben led them along the forest trail to the lake. As the boys talked and joked, Ben decided that he’d get them to go in and change and then whilst they got out the equipment, he could change in peace. After the butt crack incident, he really didn’t want to deal with anymore teasing.
‘Here we are,’ Ben said as they arrived at the edge of the huge lake was that surrounded by forest. ‘The changing block is over there, so head in and change and meet me back out here.’
The guys all ran inside and were quickly back in their board shorts.
‘Okay, the equipment shed is further down the lake. I want you guys to head down there and retrieve the boards. You’ve got five minutes.’
As soon as they started running off, Ben rushed into the changing rooms and pulled off his t-shirt. He’d put on his board shorts and flip flops and be back outside before they returned. He was never usually that conscious of his body, but after the comments about his ass and his crack the day before, he just couldn’t face them seeing him tugging down his shorts as his briefs would likely come down a bit with them.
Ben opened his kit bag and pulled out his navy board shorts. He breathed in to unbutton his khaki shorts and tugged them down to his ankles before kicking them away. He looked down at his snug black briefs before pulling them off as well. He didn’t want his briefs to be bunched up under his board shorts as it would just be too uncomfortable.
He grabbed his board shorts and had the same problem getting them on that he did with his shorts. He hadn’t worn them since the previous summer and he mentally kicked himself for not checking they fit before he wore them.
With a lot of struggling, Ben managed to keep the Velcro fastener closed if he sucked in and quickly tied the drawstring. The shorts were like a second skin and he blushed when he saw his reflection in the mirror. His bulge was prominent, his thighs looked huge and his ass stuck out like a shelf.
After a quick thought, Ben pulled his uniform t-shirt back on. There was no way that he could go out there shirtless. He just couldn’t face the comments about his squidgy, slightly furry upper body.
Ben threw his shorts, briefs, socks and boots into his kit bag, pushed his feet into his flip flops and headed outside, just as the boys returned with the body boards.
‘Nice shorts, Camp Leader Ben,’ one of the guys said with a smirk.
‘Thank you,’ Ben said, ignoring the sarcasm. ‘Now, you guys are going to get in the water, have a swim and play around with the body boards. Then we’ll play a few games where you guys will need to pair up.’
As the boys played, Ben went to sit down on the edge of the lake, but after hearing a slight popping sound coming from one of the seams on his board shorts, he quickly stood up and stayed standing. After an hour, Ben set them a game after one of the guys had nipped to the toilet inside the changing block. They had to get into pairs and whilst one guy was on the body board, the other would have to swim them to the island in the middle of the lake. Then they’d switch and swim back.
After Ben had laid out the rules, he asked for the spare boards to be handed to him. Ben was being careful to ensure the boards were close so that he didn’t risk falling in, but when the last board was being handed to him, the guy pulled it back ever so slightly. Ben reached forward and had to bend slightly to grab it.
‘Can you pass it here please, Matt?’ Ben asked as he straightened up.
Matt tossed the board over Ben’s head so it landed on the ground with a thud.
‘That wasn’t what I asked, Matt,’ Ben scolded as he turned around to pick up the board.
With all the boys watching, Ben tugged his shorts up slightly to ensure his crack would be covered before bending over to grab the board when the rear seam on his board shorts split open with a loud RRRRIIIIIPPPPPPPP!!!! His huge butt cheeks were on full view and Ben’s face heated with embarrassment as he jumped up and spun around, the laughter echoing around the lake.
‘Okay okay, very funny!’ Ben said, as he tried to quieten them down.
‘Hey, Camp Leader Ben, where’s your undies? I thought we had to wear them under our board shorts.’
‘That’s not an enforced policy. Now, I’ll go and change whilst you guys swim for a bit. We’ll pick up the game when I’m back.’
‘Okay, Camp Leader Ben,’ Matt said with a grin.
Ben did his best to walk backwards, his hands clutching the loose material of his board shorts as he tried to cover up his huge butt, but as he walked backwards, he hit the changing room block and the surprise made him jump. His hands automatically tugged and he pulled open the front of his board shorts with another loud RRRIIIPPPPP, his cock and balls flopping into view, which made the boys roar with laughter.
‘Looks like Camp Leader Ben has a semi!’
Ben turned tail and ran into the changing block, his butt bouncing to the heightened amusement of the boys.
Ben slammed the door behind him and took a deep breath. How the hell had that even happened? He looked down and realised that his tug on the material had just torn the seam through the crotch and up the front. He was mortified. How could he face them when they’d seen his dick?
‘I just need to get changed and head back out there. I’m the grown up!’
Ben removed his flip flops and tattered board shorts and walked along the bench, but his kit bag had gone. He looked everywhere, but it was nowhere to be seen.
Grabbing a towel from the rack, he wrapped it around his waist and held it tightly in his hand. His thigh could be seen through the split where the towel didn’t quite meet, but he was at least sufficiently covered.
‘Okay, guys. Very funny. Who hid my kit bag?’ Ben said as he stepped outside the changing room block.
‘Oh, sorry Camp Leader Ben, I thought it was mine.’
‘It was mine, Luke. Can I have it please?’
‘Sure, come and get it,’ Luke said as he climbed out of the lake and held up the bag.
Ignoring the other boys, Ben walked over to Luke and held out his hand. ‘Bag please.’
Before Ben could take the bag, someone came up behind him and without a moment of hesitation, they yanked his towel off and slapped one of his butt cheeks.
The boy all roared with laughter as Ben grabbed his bag and dashed back inside the changing rooms, the laughter almost deafening.
‘I pray the other camp leaders don’t find out about this,’ Ben said, his face still bright red as he changed back into his tight uniform and wished for the day to be over.
But, unfortunately for Ben, summer camp and his embarrassment was far from over …

Store Mannequins Versus Real Women: By The Numbers

According to The Guardian, the “average” mannequin measures around six feet tall, with a 34-inch bust, 24-inch waist, and 34-inch hips, and extremely narrow calves, ankles, and wrists. Needless to say, it’s a far cry from the average American woman’s size 14 build (which, according to many mass retailers like J.Crew, is equivalent to a 40.5-inch bust, 33-inch waist, and 43-inch hips).


Height: 5’3 / 163 cm

Starting Weight: Maybe 140 pounds/ 63 kg

Current(ish) weight: 125 pounds / 57 kg

Okay so there’s a pretty big time difference between the first and the rest, but I literally completely forgot i even took a picture at all and I just found this on my phone!

If I’m honest I’m glad I found it because otherwise I feel like I’ve made no progress at all, which confuses everybody because now I can run 5k and workout for 2 hours  but i look at myself and think that none of it has changed. I guess something must have- I bought my first bikini EVER which was a massive milestone (even if i don’t look good in it, or wear it out the point is that I had confidence to buy it in hopes of a better day)

 I decided to do this the  healthy way, so started yoga after a years break (and can finally do unsupported headstands and full downwards dog!) Running (could barely do 1.5km at the start) 5k, the 7 minute workout everyday for 100 days, Jillian Michaels 30 day shred (that woman is a goddess) and basically packing in a 15 minutes of dancing, running, abs or whatever between my day.

I cannot say I am happy with my body, but I am happy to have changed. I never knew my starting weight, so I never really had a numerical goal. I measure myself all the time and before I knew it I had gone from 34 inch waist to 30 to 29. Once I had gone below 30 I began to realise I could get to 28, and now am at 27.5. I cannot even wear my old trousers without them falling down, and I cannot believe I was that big around the middle. My final goal is (and don’t laugh) to be able to run my hand down my stomach and at the ‘end’ there will be no large bump of fat. I know thats not what’s important about this health journey i have been on, but I like having a goal in my mind, which to me would like be achieving the one goal I have had since I was 12 years old (16 now- but my parents are the kind of people who call you ‘piggy’ as a kid)

I am so sorry for this ramble, but I want to say thankyou for this page, thankyou for those who have done this the right way and I will see you with updated pics in month or so (THESE EXAMS ARE KILLING ME WHY AM I EVEN ON THE INTERNET RIGHT NOW?!)
