(I’ve mentioned this before in the common myths about nudism.) I’m quite comfortable wearing clothes in the winter.
But how many people actually shower first at American public pools?
We probably have the dirtiest public pools of any developed country. This creates chloramines, which give off that irritating odor.
Needless to say, the preemptive shower is much easier and more effective when done naked.
Every spring, we’re surrounded by ads about how to obtain the perfect “bikini body,” eg thin, tanned and toned with no cellulite, wrinkles or imperfections.
It’s a message that only one type of body belongs in a bikini or any kind of revealing swimsuit.
