Embarrassed to be naked at swim class
I moved to Iowa and attended a private, very small Lutheran k school after that- no showers, no pool, no paddles, no inter-school sports. After struggling through 10 laps "Emma" surfaced only to feel something graze her legs, not able to keep herself out of the water enough to look down she begins to panic. We carried our gym shoes with us on gym days and did our PE in street clothes and white t-shirts. As a Junior, we still had to take nude showers, and have our arms and legs rubbed for cleanliness before going into the pool. Thus began my time at Aunt Saras'. Especially not to a boy who might feel humiliated at his public nudity.

I still swim daily in a local pooll wearing a bathing suit , and my body is in great shape. I did x-country and we always showered after practice. After that whenever I went to visit my aunt Sara I always swam nude in her pool, it didn't even bother me if my sister or Jackie were there. The embarassments included bare assed swims in a very cold pool which proved to me that all boys are created equal, if the temperature is cold enough.
Swimming naked in gym class really happened
I notice that the guys 40 and under tend not to shower and are never nude in the locker room. It was the start of that so-called summer of his first year at the big school when he was thirteen. All the counselors had nature names like Rocky and Squirrel. Imagine trying to argue that nude swimming in public schools would be a good idea today? We played ball outside when we could.
Let that little thought nugget sink into your head for a second or two. And nice docile cannon fodder for LBJ's dreams of a commie free Asia. Why get so all fired up? I am furious with both my parents and wish I had been born into another family. In the s I attended courses at a US University.
