Hi Userofrussia,

The pronoun "собой" doesn't have gender and number. It is the Instrumental case of the pronoun "себя" and is normally used after certain verbs that need the Instrumental case: любоваться собой: admire oneself; интересоваться собой: to be interested in oneself; брать с собой: to take with oneself; покрывать собой: to cover zith oneself; представлять собой: to represent, etc.
