Irish people are generally too afraid to get naked with the lights on.
Usually need to be drunk too.


Much better when you're not drunk.

The only sauna I've been in in Ireland was naked, though single sex, so I assumed they all were.

What is the protocol when you get a boner? Do you just cover it with a towel? Or do you politely excuse yourself and go blow your load in the jacks?




finish the Assembly, send the kids back to class and go back to your office for a lie down

Can you sauna nude in Ireland and if so were ???????



There are gay saunas in Ireland where nude is the norm. Biggest is probably the boilerhouse in Dublin, if that’s your thing!

The whole naturism thing is a little bit "Third Reichish" for me and I find it interesting that the movement sprung from the same era and locations that gave us fascism.
Clothes have developed into a lot more than just something to keep us warm-we cover up our lower halves as a sign that we aren't just animals who sh1t, piss and fuck.
I don't buy the whole prudish Irish thing either-are continental males different that they don't get turned on by naked women?



eh ? the scandinavians and western russians have done " the naturism " thing for hundreds of years , germany might have only started in recent times , post 20's i would imagine but dont know for sure
my wife is finnish , in her family they still have her great grandfathers house/farm and i have seen a nearly 150 year old sauna , that's a long time before fascism became fashionable in northern Europe .

and for a measure in the difference of our attitudes against the Scandinavians - Finns in particular
i visited some neighbors of the in laws , never met this family before , within 30 minutes i was naked in the sauna with the father of the family having a beer , with his wife and his two kids , also my wife and my daughter
this kind of thing is totally normal if find in Finland .

i also went to a local hotel with a swimming pool , went in got changed , walked out of my changing cubical and was confronted by a 18 year old absolute slamming hottie in tight shorts , she worked cleaning the area
place filled with naked blokes of all ages and body type and no one gave a **** - did i mention i was naked

one thing about being in a group naked situation is you are really aware of how ****ing WHITE irish people are i looked like a bowling pin

There is a difference between saunas, particularly those in a domestic or localised setting, where nudity is more of a practicality and a comfort issue and the type of naturism I'm referring to. I don't even have a problem with people doing their own thing at a quiet beach or lake if that's what they prefer.
It's the mass gatherings of people at beaches or camps where there is undoubtably an element of exhibitionism combined with smug superiority that I'm criticising here.

Wearing any garment in a sauna is distinctly uncomfortable. It is never done in the Nordic region, where the sauna (or "bastu" as it is called in Sweden or "badstue" in Norway) is an integral part of the people's lifestyle. Mixed bathing is common (but not the general rule) within families and among close friends. No big deal. Don't worry about getting, as they say in parts of Ireland, "a brang" in the sauna. It's not likely in a temperature of up to 110 degree C (ideally around 95).

I used to go to one regularly abroad.

The changing rooms were unisex, the showers were unisex, and everyone was nude apart from the occasional woman covering her modesty with a towel.

It was all very relaxed, and no big deal for anybody.

Last year the oil man that used to deliver my oil asked me to join him and his wife in a naked sauna.
I politely declined and never ordered from that company again

Not that I wouldn't be open to the idea but just not with him and his wife at his house... i;d be scared and scarred for life i would imagine!
