Unisex saunas are...interesting.  I stayed at a hotel in Amsterdam that had one.  Knowing it was unisex, I went in wearing my bathing suit.  The trio of buck nekkid 20-something ladies who entered a few minutes later had a really good laugh about it, at my expense.

Maybe it's being prudish, but I always wear a bathing suit in the sauna. Mainly because I don't want want my bare skin touching a wooden bench that has likely never been washed and has had hundreds of others smearing their chocolate starfish on to it. So, maybe I'm a prude, or maybe I'm a germophobe, but I'm wearing my bathing suit, thankyouverymuch.

Last sauna I was in was built by an idiot that didn't countersink the screws holding all the seating planks in place, so you sat down and got a nice Phillips head shaped burn on your ass.

Never really saw the appeal though.  I like winter because I'm not sweating my ass off.  No sense in doing it intentionally.

I was in one in Berlin and there were lots of good looking nekkid women. Bonus: I got to see a colleague of mine naked that I wanted to for years. That was pretty awkward for a bit but it was worth it.

i've been to a few german saunas...i was utterly shocked at the vast number of hot women! i mean, it's a family place, there were men, women, and children, pretty much of all shapes and sizes, but there seemed to be a disproportionately large number of hot women! and this was usually on a weekday (and not the women-only day) since i tended to work weekends

it's typical in the european saunas to sit on a towel, not to wear one.

In Finnish saunas, a cloth is usually laid down on the boards or you bring your own pefletti. It could be a small cloth, a thin rubber foam pad or the cardboard from a six pack.

If it makes you feel any better, they would have laughed a lot harder if you'd been nekkid, too.

Oh...That probably wouldn't make you feel better.  Nevermind.

I think he is more alluding to the fact that most of the world doesn't give 2 shiats about nudity, while in America nudity is always sexual and is wrong. It is a function of the fact that we were initially populated by all of the religious extremists of the 16-1700's that wanted to "stop being persecuted", which means roughly that no one was putting up with their shiat, so they went where they could have their way - the American Colonies.

We still haven't recovered.

Why not naked flights? We could drop the TSA altogether. Just make the flights all-nude with no carry-ons. These would be for people who want to go faster without the hassle of lines and luggage. You walk through a body scanner (because the whole "they'll see me naked" argument no longer applies here) and they make sure you haven't got a weapon or bomb shoved up your ass, and then you go right into the plane and enjoy your naked flight. They provide blankets, of course.

When you arrive at your destination, the airline includes very basic clothing for you as you exit the plane (a jumpsuit or shorts & T-shirt) and then you can go get your own decent clothes or buy new ones if you're visiting the area.
