aw we had nude physicals given by young nurses in training who were female--would it be correct to assume young male nurses were forced to have to do same on the naked female classmates?? just wondering- HA !(not on my daughter!!!!) Also; if I had one she would not have been forced to swim naked in front of males at school !! That part of double standard would have been okay with me or there would have been trouble. This whole thing of acceptable to force boys to be nude in "many, many" situations versus girls was certainly a female power surge (even if not sexual-but Sylvia and some others dispelled that) and female nudity other than moms and sisters was the only experience we had so do you not think this is why Mr. Hefner and others found such a market for photos and the topless bars were everywhere- the clients were the young men who had not had same viewing privileges their female classmates may have had but we were giggled at and teased-- possibly??

Ladies in the Orient who dive in next to nothing seem to live to reasonably ages.
Am sure they do-thankfully- and do you go naked in front of opposite gender as well- seems it is great for life longevity ?

I also grew up swimming nude in our public high school boys swimming classes in Michigan. I never under stood the silly discrimination issue, the women's right issue that forced the boys to have mixed swim teams and mixed swim classes. It is not done in any other sport. There are girl's teams and there are boy's teams. The women's sex discrimination claim specifically aimed at swimming has always been a phoney claim.

All it takes is a little pressure in favor of boy's rights to have all male competition as is true with basketball, football, tennis, and running and this whole thing would be reversed quickly. We should have more clothing optional swimming for men and if the girls are good at organization, they could have nude swimming classes for girls too.

It would make the pool cleaner. So how would that be discrimination? Today we are overloaded with silly slogans like "family values" that constantly are used to discriminate against men's rights.

I am a french and I never experienced nude swimming lessons for boys in a school, nor co-ed schools in the last 50's and first half of the 60's for high school.

Nevertheless afer reading a lot of messages about that rule in the past in the United States, I believe that it was true but all the messages in that discussion seems not true.

When I read the message of "MarK " and that of "Billy" in the second page, I think that they are too incredible, it was not possible that there was co-ed lessons with boys in the nude and girls in swim suits in a school or it was with children at elementary schools, I don't believe that the middle or high school authorities and also the parents had allowed such a situation, it is not because of the respect of the modesty of boys, I am convinced that it was not a real concern at that time for most of adults persons but what do you do with the respect of decency for girls which was a very strong social norm at that time?

As regards "Coyotte" message, I presume that like in France the school physicals of boys in his school were performed without much privacy or respect of modesty even for students in high schools.
And of course, like him, we had to be undressed in front of one or two female nurses (it was depending on school years)and either a female doctor, most of the time a middle age woman, either a male retired military doctor which was worse for the disdain of our modesty because he instructed us to strip completely and we were naked for all the exam, we were already instructed to be naked in the locker room because he was used to perform like that exams for draftees of 18 age who were just a bit older of us.
The nurses were mostly middle age women, either with maternal manners, either on the opposite rather with autoritarian manners of a sergeant in the army.
There was two times where young students female nurses came to school physicals to assist the nurse of the school and learn the job, and one year in 10th grade, it was with the retired military doctor, so they had the surprise to see a group of teenagers naked in the locker room and staying naked for all the exam including the parts that they did as the weight at the scale or the height or the test eye's. I presume that it was a day where they enjoyed their job!
Our male Pe teacher was very often present also in the locker room to supervise us as he did for Pe lesssons or sports outside. Sometimes, he was also present in the exam room, especially to look at the exam of our spine.
I disliked these school physicals because I was a shy and too modest boy but they were mandatory and we had no choice, we might do what we were told to do as it was always the case at that time, a complaint to parents or school authorities would have been useless!parents especially father would have loughted!

Thre was certainly sometimes a double standard towards nnakedness for boys and girls but nobody was thinking a lot about that.
it was the same for mandatory school showers after Pe lessons.

A short comment on "Richard" post on the page 2 :

He said that he was more embarrassed by his annual medical check in front of a lady doctor than by having to swim in the nude at his first year in school "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! "

I am surprised that it was for him so embarrassing because it was also so common at that time where there was generally mandatory annual school physicals that it was not an event!

And it was logical that it was not abolished at the same time as the rule of swimming nude and that he had a physical since the end of high school, may be with the same lady doctor, but I don't know how his school physicals were performed but it could have been almost always worse, for instance if they were perfomed in a gym without any partition as it happened in some schools !

I was raised as a nudist so have no problem being nude around others. When growing up I belonged to the ymca where we all were naked in the pool. Some moms would come and watch us swim.

It is perfectly fine being naked. Guys don't look at other guys junk. People should really ease up about it.

It seems that no one has added to this thread for quite some time but I'd like to hear more of what Simon in Melbourne, Australia has to say. Certainly the most informed and not judgmental like Spudz Hudson from DC in the USA.
And do Mark and Billy in Colchester, UK share the same computer? Or do they both just have their CAPS lock stuck on? Strangely similar but conflicting content too.

Being gay, it was frustrating to see all those buttocks 3x per week and not be able to do more than look. A very painful time in my life.

For all those boys forced to swim in the nude in front of the opposite sex well you should know that you were sexually assaulted by the weird people who ran your schools. Even after all this time you should not let them get away with it. They should spend some time in prison and have their names published.

As well, forcing boys to be ‘examined’ by female nurses is an aggressive sexual assault. The schools must be ripe with pedophiles. I would suggest that same sex; boy’s only, nude swimming supervised by only male staff at every step of the activity is not a sexual assault. Some boys may find it liberating. There are, however, shy boys who find this very difficult, so, their feelings should be considered. Wearing a swim suit is not an attack on learning or school academics….it’s just a swim suit. If any school officials objected to boys wearing swim suits I would have their background checked by the police. BYW…where are the parents in this, do they care about this sexual activity being forced on their children?

I am suprised that the schools make you wear so much clothing for swimming. Are speedo briefs or since you are in Australia, AussieBum swim wear also popular? All of the boys in junior high and high school swam nude in Dearborn Michigan for the swim calsses and swim team until about 1978 or 1980. We do not have many nude beaches in the US today. Do they have many nude beaches in Brisbane, Australia or do a lot of people have their own pools at home?

Right You Are: 100%! I'm totally over all of the hypocrasy & insensitivity that society has shown to the male gender time and again (and it continues)! Whether it be forcing us to be exposed to bullies or the opposite gender while naked when we were young, or nowadays, to be refused the right to have our own facilities where we can enjoy the freedom of an all-male gym (which woman are allowed to have legally) where we can swim nude; we guys are constantly being denied our right to choose. Women & girls have the right to choose Anything that they want: Killing their baby in the womb even thought they could have used any of a myriad of contraceptive devices either beforehand, during or afterward. And if they choose to have the baby, they have the right to give it up for adoption with no responsibility to support it! A man on the hand, has no right to choose either abortion or adoption; yet he is held responsible for the 2 choices that the woman has made!
Men need to demand THEIR right to choose as well. Demand it from every candidate! I know that it's an uphill battle; the leftist media is against it (look what they did to the reputation & wealth of the Catholics for standing up to Abortion). However, is there any other way to get our rights back?
Sincerely,
An Equalitarian

BAH_do you guys really really like all this fantasy BS? Never happened, it's all in your little delusional minds. Mixed swimming where the male was nude is all the stuff of CFNM crapola. Get a life all of you. MY self and other shave rechecked any and all faked documentation and it never happened.
Grow up and stop with the tall tales!

I agree....this was a sexual assault on all of these boys and probably caused a lot of psychological damage....if someone was smart they could make a killing off of a lawsuit against such places like the ymca and school districts that did this stupidity.

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.
