last month me and my colleague went to korea for business trip. after tiring meetings, we went to korean sauna for relaxing. it would be my first visit to korean sauna. and as you guys may know that nudity is mandatory in korean or japanese sauna. i was a bit nervous about the situation i'm going to face in that place. then we arrived at the sauna. it was not a peak hour, so fewer people there. its a good thing for a beginner like me. being korean, my colleague really casual about nudity. he directly strip naked in the locker room while i was still fully clothed. he's only few years older than me and probably quite handsome for korean guy. he told me to strip to my birthday suit. as i did, i was abit embarrased because the though of being naked had gave a little exicetement down there. i was sporting a semi erection. i tried to cover it with my hands. my colleague was just laughing, and he said no worries. then he showed me the bathing ritual for korean sauna. we even scrubed each other's back and ass (as we couldn't reach those parts by ourself, that's why korean helps each other to scrub those parts). i guess for korean men is not a big deal having a physical contact even when you're naked. because i also saw other men washed each other's back and ass as well. even i saw a naked guy being massaged by other naked guy. probably for foreigner like me, it was not a common sight, but my colleague said it was common in korean sauna. and nothing sexual about it. anyway, after the rituals, we soaked in a pool then we talk and just talking. it was more than one hour talking. surprisingly i felt really comfortable talking with my colleague while we're naked. usually a bit hard to talk to him in the office (while we're fully clothed). he himself also talk easily to me in the sauna. we talked many things, from business to personal issues. it was like a great men bondling experience. and honestly, after the bathing experience, it is much easy to do business with my colleague. according to my colleague, some asian people like korean and japanese believe that being naked together in the bath can increase stronger bonding between individuals. some korean companies even held their monthly meetings or even business talk in the sauna. when everybody is naked, there won't be lies. nothing to hide (that is exactly what i felt). having experience it myself, i guess the saying is true. nakedness which can also related to purity can bring honesty and stronger bonding between individual. has anyone ever experience the same? or probably there are korean/japanese guys in here who can share the story behind their bathing ritual tradition?
