There was a comment on my post about communal showers in gyms disappearing from a reader that made a lot of sense. Yes I admit that part of the appeal is the perve factor of seeing the hot muscle guys in my gym showering. That is also a fun part of nude beaches. Darren pointed out that unless good nudists at least pretend not to be perving there is no way communal showers will come back. To an extent I agree.

Militant nudists will tell you that there is no sexual aspect to nudism and in the strict sense that is true. I never go to the nude beach with the intention of cruising or having sex but like a lot of people lying nude in the sun makes me feel a bit horny. Likewise I challenge even the most serious of nudists to truthfully say they’ve never taken note of anyone being attractive or compared the size of their genitals to other nudists. If they told me that they hadn’t, I’d call bullshit.

I can quite happily go to the nude beach and read a book or chat with friends and not be horny at all. That is the case most of the time I go but I still look at other people on the beach. People watching is one of the most entertaining and economical forms of entertainment around and when you add nudity to the mix it’s great fun.

Getting back to the topic of the gym, any long term reader knows that I love the idea of a nude gym. Yes it would be an awesome perve. Just look at the hottie doing squats in the middle photo above! Along with the perve comes the tradition of nude exercise. This definition comes from wikipedia “The gymnasium in ancient Greece functioned as a training facility for competitors in public games. It was also a place for socializing and engaging in intellectual pursuits. The name comes from the Ancient Greek term γυμνός [gymnós] meaning “naked”.
