I WENT TO A MIXED SCHOOL IN LONDON IN THE SEVENTIES.OUR SWIMMING LESSON WAS MIXED. US BOYS
HAD TO SWIM IN THE NUDE. THE GIRLS WERE ALLOWED TO WEAR COSTUMES. THE GIRLS LESSONS FINISHED 10 MINUTES BEFORE US BOYS.THEY WERE ALLOWED TO SIT ON THE EDGE OF THE POOL AND WATCH US GET OUT NAKED.
SOME OF US BOYS GOT ERECTIONS. THE GIRLS SAT GIGGLING AT US. ALSO SOME BOYS DEVELOPED LATER
THAN THE OTHERS.IT WAS REALLY DEGRADING.
HAVE ANY OTHER BOYS BEEN THROUGH THIS AND HOW
DID THEY FEEL.

I would have felt if they were giggling it meant they were looking at the boys south of the border. Further, they liked what they saw. They were allowed to wear something. Does this mean that they could have worn less or nothing? Does your keyboard have lower case letters? Why did they finish sooner if the classes were combined? Did the two groups do things together? How close did they get in the water? Did both groups shower at the same time? You used the word "us boys" instead of "we boys". Did you flunk grammar? Why would all boys develop at the same time? Why would something that you had no control over be degrading? Did the school teach lifesaving to your class? Did a girl and boy who were a number practice lifesaving and end up French kissing? Did the teacher catch them doing something romantic and call them out of the pool? At swim meets did your school compete in the nude since there were mixed classes with nudity? We need answers!

So far we have discussed nude swim in Phys ed. What about going nude for other types of activities in gym? I had nude swimming but we did warm up exercises in the all together. Since everybody the class saw each other nude anyway why not just forget about gym uniforms? Go for sneakers and jocks and have students shower in their jocks so the things get washed. No stinky shorts or shirts. Running and sports like basketball make one sweat heavily. No more sweaty clothes and more guys would shower if they could do it in their jocks plus dressing would go one minute faster. Girls, today, get to appear in public in thongs so boys should be able to be in public in jocks.

MAYBE THE GIRLS GIGGLED BECAUSE THEY LIKED WHAT THEY SAW.I DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT.COSTUMES WERE COMPULSARY FOR THE GIRLS.THEIR LESSONS FINISHED EARLIER BECAUSE SWIMMING WAS CONSIDERED MORE TIRING FOR GIRLS [AS WAS P.E]WE GOT QUITE CLOSE IN THE POOL.NO WE DID N OT SHOWER AT THE SAME TIME.I DID NOT FLUNK GRAMMAR FOR YOUR INFORMATION.AT SWIM MEETS BOYS SWAM NAKED WHEREAS GIRLS HAD COSTUMES.I KNOW NOT ALL BOYS DEVELOP AT THE SAME TIME AND THAT WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER OUR BODIES.
I FELT IT WAS DEGRADING BUT YOUR ENTITLED TO YOUR
OPINION.DID YOU SWIM NAKED IN FRONT OF GIRLS. WEREN'T YOU EMBARRASSED AT ALL.

WHEN WE HAD PE WE WEREN'T ALLOWED TO WEAR PANTS UNDER OUR SHORTS. THE MASTERS CAME AND LOOKED DOWN OUR SHORTS TO SEE IF WE HAD THEM ON. IF ANY BOY WAS CAUGHT WITH HIS PANTS ON HE HAD HIS SHORTS PULLED
DOWN AND WAS SLAPPED ACROSS THE ARSE WITH A WET TOWEL.ALSO WE WEREN'T ALLOWED TO WEAR SHIRTS.
IN DOORS WE DID PE IN THE NUDE. OUTDOORS WE JUST
WORE SHORTS EVEN IN THE FREEZING COLD OF WINTER.IF YOU FORGOT YOUR SHORTS YOU HAD TO DO THE LESSON WITH A TOWEL WRAPPED AROUND YOUR WAIST.IF IT FELL DOWN YOU HAD TO CONTINUE WITH IT OVER YOUR SHOULDER. EVEN OUTDOORS.IN THE SHOWERS IT DIDN'T MATTER AS WE ALL GOT USED TO SEEING EACH OTHER NAKED.
THIS WAS AN ALL BOYS SCHOOL.
ANY OTHERS WITH SIMILAR STORIES.

Check out the website "Nudist Fun". Oodles and oodles of study material for home study anatomy people. Includes photos of running around in the snow starkers. Also chicks with chain saws, and archery. I got ancestors in Scandinavia who used to attain near heat prostration status and then run through the snow. Couple of places in New York and elsewhere have saunas with buckets that can be filled with ice cold water to dump on one's body and small pools with ice cold water. You get to do a Red Foxx style fake heart attack. Then there are the birch switches you whip yourself with or maybe get a girl to do to you. Btw are you aware that it took the whole Russian army to win against Finland . Shows what lots of saunas will do to you. Also, a hundred years ago Finns going to the US had no problem getting work in the steel industry up around Duluth, Min. because they could handle the winters.

I would like to ask Mark, which school was it in London that you are discussing? I am curious as to the school as I have an interest in different school cultures. and Spudz, I am a bit confused about your history comment. Finland versus the Soviet Union was a draw. Finland was never completely beaten by Russia.If you slang off at someone else's grammar, you surely also realise that "flunk" is a slang colloquialism, so your own grammar is non standard. John from Illinoiis, where was your school? which town? Thanks

The Finns ended up in a strange situation. They were an Iron Curtain country which meant their foreign policy was under control of the Russians but there was total freedom of speech. My mother was an American who spoke Finn and carried a security clearance as an employee of the American army. She was arrested in Finland in 1950 on a train under orders of a Finnish army officer who thought she was a Russian spy. The Finns have had centuries of shipbuilding. The icebreakers used in Russian waters came from Finnish shipyards. Today the border between the two is easily crossed. Drivers from Finland fill up in Russia for example.

It so happens that my very first year at my (all boys) secondary school (1972-3) was the very last year that they had nude swimming classes.
Basically all boys in years one to three had to be like this - no exceptions - and so for one year only every Wednesday morning I learned to swim without my trunks!
By the time I could actually swim competently, in my second year, the rule had been abolished. It does seem a bit strange now, although I assumed it was normal for most boys' schools with their own pools at the time.
I was definitely embarrassed to start with, but after half a lesson I'd forgotten all about it - it was really just like being in a big bath with a lot more room to move about. The medical check we had with a lady doctor once a year after our weekly shower WAS embarrassing - and sadly wasn't abolished in my time there!

Imagine you are a kid again and your parents send you to psychiatrist. He tells your parents that you should be sent to sent a special therapy summer camp. When you get there you find you have two choices. Nude or clothed. Further, what happens there stays there. I am sure most would go nude. In the book, "Summerhill" most of the kids at the boarding school would go naked for periods. Nude is the default mode for most of us when we do not have to deal with societal pressures.

I also took nude boys swim classes at Senn High (required) and at the "Y" (extra-curricular) in Chicago during the mid-fifties. Neither seemed to pose any problem. It was just what we did. In retrospect, would have loved having the girls in, too. But that seems to be "unthinkable" in the milieu of the day, or for that matter, in the milieu of today. Well, maybe it's thinkable. It's just not done in the US outside of the few nude beaches that are tolerated. The girls back then had to buy blousy cotton "tank suits" for their required lessons at school. It may be a wonder that the suits didn't drag them under.

In order to procreate humans have to be at least semi-naked in company with members of the other s,e,x who are also at least semi-naked. If being semi-naked is a requirement then being naked should not be harmful in any way. Could somebody please describe what the harm is from seeing naked people swimming? Ladies in the Orient who dive in next to nothing seem to live to reasonably ages.

Other countries have customs which I considered to be very strange. There's a wealthy Greek family. And the ladies will go up to the pool in a bathrobe. then, they disrobed in order to swim. Some of the male workers nearby were only 12 and 14 years old. So, that culture must see nothing wrong with it. I've been to japan too. But they have a natural barrier. You're simply not supposed to look. In fact, I saw private footage of female hikers in Europe. And when they go to the bathroom in the woods, nobody looks in their direction. Can you imagine that? Really, 20 male hikers could pass by, and not one of them looks. Okay, I went off on a tangent. I personally believe, skinny dipping should at least be FAIR. Where both parties are naked. Hopefully, that answers your question. Everybody must participate. And NO spectators allowed.(although I would try).

Is it true that in some schools in the USA the swimteams competed in the nude in front of mixed spectators?
I know that this happened regularly in some schools in Germany at least up to the 70s.

Swimming naked is perfectly normal because BEING naked is normal.
Why do some people say otherwise? Because of religion?
But, God created our bodies and deigned that we are born naked, so God does nt have a problem with it.
Our world would be a far more honest and moral place if we were all naked all of the time.

I started high school at 12 years old in grade 9 and found out on orientation day that all we needed to bring to swim class as part of our physical education program was a towel (bathing suits not allowed) My class was filled by 4 or 5 of my neighbourhood friends and the thought of them seeing me completely naked scared the daylights out of me. We wern't even allowed to wrap ourselves in our towels while not in the water-they had to be left behind in the dressing room for drying later. So the first 5 or 10 minutes lined up next to them at the pool side was a little uncomfortable. It seemed everybody was checking out everyone else to see if you lived up to the boasting you did in the summer about your virile exploits. We no longer had any secrets and the sex stories were dropped because all our cards were on the table and everyone could see nobody had even a full house let alone a good pair. Those were the humbling days -jw
