Okay now be prepared, this isn’t one of those cheeky titles just to get your attention, alright let’s just jump right into the middle of this. So there I was completely nude sitting in front of about four much older men, who I can only assume were staring at me, although I had my eyes closed so I could pretend no one else was around. As beads of sweat started rolling down my torso, from heat, nervousness and knowing they were naked also…okay wait maybe starting in the middle of the story isn’t the best place, let me back up!
So my cousin in Austria, invited me last Friday to go the the spa/sauna with her, a very popular activity there. If anyone knows me I am all for a spa or sauna day, any little bit of pampering is right up my alley. So we got there checked in at reception went in to change and I realized that all the rooms for the various treatments, such as the Finnish sauna, Bio sauna, UV light, herbal steam rooms etc. all prohibited clothing! Alright I was a bit shy at this news but whatever, that’s not unusual plus I’m in a different country and we are all women here right? Ahhm no! There are no separate areas for males and females, this was a whole new world for me. This was like a nude beach on steroids, as I entered the sauna areas with my wrap tied around me, first thing to catch my eye was the very nonchalantly strolling old men with all there withered parts exposed for all to see. We found a sauna room that was empty and I very shyly slipped into it with her and sat legs crossed in the hot room. Only seconds later in walked one, then two, then three now four men. All I wanted to do was grab my towel and run out!
Okay now I must say not only was I unusual because I was probably the youngest person there, but yeah we were the only two black people, needless to say the piqued curiosities were in full effect. Any time we entered an empty room it didn’t stay empty for too long. So there I was, naked, feeling totally awkward with my eyes closed to pretend that I wasn’t sitting butt ass naked in a room with four also naked men. I was so happy when our time was up and we got out, only to walk over to the showers with no doors on them that also housed a bunch of other naked men beneath the rain heads. At one point when showering after one of the steam rooms, there was one guy who kept walking back and forth in front of the shower I was in and I just turned and looked him square in the eye. Then he, a bit embarrassingly, sat in the lounge area without passing by again.
I must say however, I was probably the only one feeling as awkward about this as I was, because otherwise everyone else men and women included all walked around slowly and calmly as if they were just strolling the aisles of a supermarket on a Saturday. So as the time went on my own anxiety about the situation began depleting. When in the UV rooms I was unsure how to use the equipment and what the benefits were, so a lovely older lady sitting across from us just wandered over to explain a bit, as if the fact that her now sagging large breasts, that have probably seen better days, weren’t dangling in front of my face, I made sure not to have my eyes venture any lower. After about two and a half hours we left the treatment complex and were back to the pool area with our swimsuits on and funnily enough feeling weird being so covered now.
This was definitely something new for me and even though I became increasingly comfortable there was never a moment that I wasn’t aware of the nudity that surrounded me, especially my own. However, I would absolutely do that again! You know when I had said to someone that I really wanted to work on being more vulnerable and exposed, I meant emotionally, but the universe however thought it was more fun to manifest this one literally!
