One of the great discoveries for me that came with joining a nudism/naturism organization is the hot tub experience — I had never been in one. Now, I wonder how I ever lived without it.
During the fall, winter and spring months, my naturism group meets bi-weekly at various swimming pool facilities — there are four in the rotation — that each also have a hot tub as well as a sauna.
I love the communal hot tub experience: there’s nothing like soaking with 85 of your friends, as I did last night in the one pictured above — though, not all at the same time. It seats about 35 people, and it’s not wise to soak in it for much more than 15 minutes at a time. So, after the hot tub, it’s into the swimming pool for a while, then back to the hot tub again.
The only thing I miss in the large communal hot tubs in public facilities is being able to sip on a glass of wine . . .
Which is partially why I’m thinking I would like to have a smaller hot tub at home where I could sip on that glass of wine while soaking with my loved one and friends. But always in the buff, of course. I can’t imagine being in a hot tub with a swim suit on. That just seems to defeat the whole purpose to me — which is to let 104-degree F water soothe as much of your body as possible.
