does anyone know of anyplace that lets men swim naked? (i'm heterosexual and therefore not looking for gay places.) i heard that the ymca used to let you do this and they would have certain hours for just men. i've also heard they used to have all the boys swim naked in school swimming class. anyone know of anyplace you can do this now? i've been wanting to try it out and i do not want to go to a co-ed nudist place for moral reasons. thanks.
I'm not quite sure about that, there certainly isn't anyplace where I live (rural Northeast) I will say though that it is quite cool! I had a pool while growing up and when I was a teenager/young adult I often swam late at night....little did my parents know! And for those of you wondering...I was always alone!
I don't think I can help you here. I also have a hard time believing the YMCA will allow you to swim naked during certain off hours of whenever. It just doesn't seem right. Maybe you can search your area and look into it more.
Hey Mike--yes, in the "old days," the YMCAs were men-only, and swimming nude was the custom. I learned to swim that way--with my Dad, no less. No one thought anything of it. But when the Y became coed (late 70s-early 80s?) nationwide, the practice obviously stopped.
There very well may be some that maintain men's times for the pool, but I wouldn't count on it now.
The other guys are right--find a stream/river, a secluded area of a pond or lake--that's the best bet. Just be sure you are well away from anyone who might be offended, especially women and children.
There is absolutely nothing "immoral" about swimming naked, provided you do it either in an area where it is customary or where no one would be offended. Personally, I hate wearing swim trunks and I swim without them whenever possible. But I also would never remove them unless it were acceptable.
