The first time I saw a boy naked, I'd already lost my virginity months before. My boyfriend and I had Done It in one of those half-dressed, in the dark, "didn't know that's where we were headed that night" kind of moments. It was over very fast, and with all apologies to that boyfriend, it was not the time of my life. Seeing a boy naked kind of was, though. It was kind of one of the best moments, ever. I hope when the end is near and I'm circling the drain, that my life will actually flash before my eyes and I'll get to see this all over again.
Swimming naked: my high school swim team did!
Author: James [ Edit View ]. A couple of times some guys mom came by to pick a kid up early or drop something off. But whenever it was a public meet where females were present we were required to wear trunks. I think this was more to protect the girls from having to see us than out of any concern about our modesty. Author: Jonathan [ Edit View ]. It was all boys in the class though a couple of the assistants were teen-age or young twenties girls. We were nude for the lessons. Some moms, I presume those with farther drives back home or not running errands, stayed and watched the lessons.
After watching swim team meets between other schools, I tried out for our high school swim team I attended Harrison High School in Chicago from and what do you know, I made it! As I relive this memory it also talks to how swimming has changed in six decades and all for the better. I went to my first practice session in our swimming pool and I saw no one wearing a bathing suit.
The origins of nude swimming can be found well before the guideline was published. When the first indoor pool opened at the Brooklyn YMCA in , the organization required men and boys to swim naked. Other reasons given by administrators during the era included concerns about the expense of bathing suits, newspaper articles of the time indicate. Others in favor of naked swimming said the practice prepared boys for adulthood. Many places adopted the practice before the decree. The same publication in featured a photograph of nude boys swimming at a pond at the Springfield, Mass. Images of naked adolescent boys swimming appeared in national publications, including Life Magazine. Boys who refused to swim naked were ostracized by other boys and sometimes coaches or instructors, documents and videos show.
