Naked at the YMCA

I believe that today's views on nudity have had a negative impact on us. It has actually led to more Sandusky type issues since nudity is now such a forbidden thing.

is part of a discussion in the Relationships, Discrimination, and Jealousy forum that includes topics on Friends, family, co-workers, significant others....

Check out a Korean Spa. I have one 85 miles from my location. Wet areas are sex segregated and strictly nude. Very low cost also, and it's open 24/7. Here in VA it's Spa World. spaworldusa.com

I used to hope for some sort of interaction at my local YMCA when I was younger. It never happened, until I went into a steam room at a non-Y gym. I used to walk around with an erection all the time. But I was always a freak like that ;)

There were a couple of hot times in the communal showers, but it was a lot of waiting around for nothing most of the time...which is why I stopped cruising. Sure sounds hot in my head. The. I did it and just felt kinda creepy. I guess my fantasies will have to suffice.

Great posts from everyone. I grew up in the NE and at our local YMCA, we always swam nude. In this time there were YWCA's for women and the YMCA was always men only. All the locker rooms, workout rooms, whatever....you could usually see a few guys naked. It was no big deal and everyone did it. Some years later I was living in Indianapolis and worked out at the Indy Athletic Club. Again all men only and it seemed that everyone there went naked. I witnessed guys in the weight room naked, swimming and even a few playing basketball. The showers were great big gang showers.
To me this was a much more simple time and because it was the norm everyone felt comfortable. Today our youth are filled with all these crazy images of what they should look like, so if they do not, most are embarrassed to be nude infront of others.
I wish it was different. I have been to spa's all over Europe, Mexico, Canada and USA. Fun when everyone is naked. I think a much more enjoyable experience.
Just my thoughts on the subject. I do understand with all the media coverage of Sandusky and the others, some are concerned, but in the grand scheme of it all, these incidents are few and far between. KEEP SEX out of these places and reserve it for the bedroom. Men who prey on others at the gym have contributed this problem.

I never had the opportunity to visit a YMCA. There were no such sites in the area where I was born and raised. My first experience at a Y was the night before my physical to join the U. S. Navy. I was there to sleep and did not even think about using the pool. I was taken to the physical site the next morning and sworn in the U.S. Navy the next afternoon and put on a Plane for Boot Camp in San Diego.

Lucky guy - but are you sure guys really played basketball naked? Maybe for fun but I can't imagine there was ever time when a guy would decide to play a sport naked (or for that matter do wieghts) just because he felt like being naked, particularly if he was around people who were not naked

Chung Dam Spa in the Cheltenham section of Philadelphia is the only place in my area I know of where men are just naked.

I'm not supporting this or encouraging it in anyway, just curious. I was molested by an uncle when I was younger as my parents would leave me in his care from time to time. They (my parents) didn't give this a clue. I wonder if this happened at the Y - parents would drop off their sons for a swim and not even think that older guys would be there hovering over them doing lord knows what. Today, however, with all the media attention to the Catholic Church, Boy Scouts, organizations like Jerry Sandusky's Second Mile, parents are more aware of the potential harm and thus teach their sons to dress/undress only at home, never hang out with adult men, etc!
You may not believe this but it's true because I have experienced it firsthand: having a bunch of guys naked in a Y pool was completely non-sexual! Because everyone was naked! Simple as that. No one can do anything sexual because everything is out in the open. Every age group was represented from teens to old dudes. The worst thing to happen was shrinkage, plus guys hurting their balls when they dove into the water incorrectly.

Instant gratification takes too long.

Please, don't send me a friendship request unless we genuinely have a relationship or you've at least discussed it with me first. I'd appreciate it. Muchly.

When I was married, my son and I (he was about 6 or 7) would swim naked in our pool in the back yard. (we lived somewhat in a wooded area). It was neither weird, or creepy. Very natural. We would talk about how great it felt without a suit. And being guys, it was a lot easier to piss outdoors. There are way too many hang ups today, surrounding nudity.

I saw a guy the other day at a beach bar (weather was a humid 93) and he had a polo shirt on with a t-shirt underneath. Seriously? The only reason I could see someone doing that in that kind of weather, is that they were prone to sweating profusely. I agree with the person who said today we are shown, through television, what we are supposed to look like. It's just wrong. This is America because we come in all kinds of shapes, colors, and lifestyles...we should be proud of that fact.

There wasn't a Y in the area where I grew up, so never got to swim nude as a kid. I moved west in the '70s and discovered Black's Beach. I love 7 miles south of Black's and spent many sunny summer days there. I love being naked on the beach and in the ocean. It feels great to be in the water without any clothing. Unlike the pools at the Y being male only, Black's visitors come in every variety. Males, females, young, old, fat, and fit. Being naked in public in an accepted place is very freeing. IMO, the families who go to Black's are helping their kids to grow up without hangups about their bodies. I'm happy that this opportunity is available to me any time I want it and is only 7 miles away.
