Nude swimming in high school

Did anyone have to swim nude in high school? It was required in The Chicago area (Cook County) for quite some time, late 1970's

There is something about being naked that means you are obliged to be
friendly and welcoming. When all your defences are stripped away...all you're left
with is exactly the same as what everyone else has. Jessica Hatcher

LOL, my high school didn't even have a pool, so I guess you could say no.

RE: Nude swimming in high school

I heard of a boys boarding school where they swam nude and were still doing it in the late 70's.
Then they allowed girls to join the school............ who also had to swim nude!!

Quoting from Genesis, "They were nude but they were not ashamed." Furthermore, because God created it, "The human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve its splendor and its beauty."

LOL same here. But we did have to shower after PE and boys and girls locker rooms each had a big shower room. This was in the 70s, now when my son went to school, showeres were not required and most ddidn't shower.

Currently living in a clothing optional community where I am nude when I can be and dressed only when I have to be

RE: Nude swimming in high school

When I was in high school we did not have a pool either, but Physical Education (Gym) was a required course and taking a shower afterwards was also required.

In those days swimming pools in the YMCA and Boys' clubs allowed (some even required) nude swimming. It was the norm.

Now things have changed. Most of the Ys have gone co-ed as have the former Boys' clubs. I understand that showers in many schools are no longer used.

We were REQUIRED to get naked, go through the shower gauntlet, and enter the pool area and swim naked.
Isn't that kinda strange??

Back in my home town of Milwaukee, in the mid 60's, the High School I attended had swimming as a PE activity and yes, we did swim nude. Not only that, we had to travel down a back hallway and two flights of stairs to get to the pool, all of us nude. At first it was a bit intimidating, but after a couple of times it just seemed like the natural thing to do. Unfortunately, it was not co-ed. Oh to be 16 again!!

Nudism is the Great Equalizer. It is impossible to put on airs when one is nude.-- NudeInMA<br>

RE: Nude swimming in high school

One possible reason that that pool filtration systems decades ago were not as sophisticated, and the material used in swim suits was more likely to shed filter-clogging strands of cloth. Maintenance would be easier and less costly with nude swimmers.

All that ended when our culture decided that physical perfection was the new standard and hammered into young heads that unless their bodies were ideal, they were not "sexy" or desirable. Body image became an obsession, and nudity became unthinkable to any kid whose body did not meet the Hollywood standard. Result: young folks (and some not so young 'uns) shower in their underwear or go home smelly and sweaty rather than be seen nude by others.

Social devolution is one of the signs of social collapse.

Both my Junior Hig and Senior High schools had Olympic-sized pools. Yes, the boys were required to swim nude. That is from 7th grade through 12th grade. I graduated High School in 1966.

We weren't required to swim in high school, but freshman year in college, we were required to pass a swimming test, and all the males had to swim in the nude. (I do not know what was required of the female students)

RE: Nude swimming in high school

I graduated in the mid 90's. The P.E. classes were of mixed gender, the instructors were of mixed gender and there was definately no nude swimming. The community's pool was located across the street from our Highschool, but not operated by the school. I have played hockey for 29 years all over Canada and U.S.A, and not once have I ever seen a dressing room locker with individual shower stalls. The shower stalls in Jr High and High school and at the pool were also group showers. Almost everyone in my community grew up playing hockey, so most didn't think twice about the required showering after every P.E. class. (edit: my wife just told me that the girl's shower in Jr High and Highschool had individual stalls... who knew? I guess I didn't do much talking to girls in HS?)

As for nude HS swimming... I suppose many in North America have had the fear mongering of sex preditors pounded into their heads to ever require (let alone allow) their children to participate. Too many teachers, priests, coaches and others who have been placed in positions of trust with children have been splashed across the headlines over their trangressions.

RE: Nude swimming in high school

In my liittle home town in Il. it was hard enough just a place to be nude let alone swim nude. Our school didn't have pool anyway. Just grew up where everybody thought you should wear clothes. I became a nudist on my own. I just like being naked.

RE: Nude swimming in high school

I was graduated from high school in 1962. We did go to the indoor pool for swimming. It was only females. It was usually the last class of the day, and I showered with little problem. Although, at that time I was shy.

Happy Nuding.

RE: Nude swimming in high school

No pools in Jr. or Sr. High School, all males used group showers. YMCAs were all nude swimming. Nude swimming is the best.

RE: Nude swimming in high school

What high school in Milwaukee had nude swimming?  I remember that the  high  school in Sheboygan (known as Central, where I grew up) had a pool and the boys were required to be naked in the pool.  I took swimming lessons there, but did not attend high school there. Then two new high schools were built, and the pool in each were co-ed and the nudity stopped.  However I went to college at UW Madison and the pool for the boys was literally in the locker room of the Old Red Gym, and nudity was required in that pool until the mid 70's and then because of Title IX (gender equality in education), that was stopped.  I could never figure that out, because the women had a pool in Lathrop Hall, and it was frankly a better and larger pool than the one in the Old Red Gym.  Why would nude swimming be stopped in a pool located in the middle of a boys' locker room?    I thought that was taking gender equality just a bit too far.  Eventually the UW Natatorium was built, and it was lovely, and, of course co-ed and no nudity, though I told reliably, that thong swimming is allowed.  I am now married and am lucky to have a private in ground pool.  One neighbor has a partial view of the pool, so I have to be discrete, but I can and do swim nude regularly and love it.  I have always loved the idea of swimming as nature intended.
