First Time Nude In Mixedsauna
When I lived in Asia I used to go a sauna sometimes, nudity was normal but as sexes were separated this didn't make much difference. One time I discovered that half an hour in a steam room would cure the sinus headaches I suffered from, after that a quick visit to the sauna became standard practice for me whenever I felt one coming on.
After I moved to The Netherlands this became a problem. I knew that here it is normal for public saunas to be mixed and bathing clothes were not allowed. I was afraid of getting an erection so put up with the pain instead, however one day it was too much so I headed for the sauna in a nearby hotel. Experienced visitors there hire a bath robe however, unsure of the procedure, I changed into my swimming shorts to pass the (clothed) pool area to reach the sauna complex. Passing through the frosted glass door I found a row of pegs with towels and robes hanging from them. Above the pegs was a poster explaining the proper sequence for taking a sauna, I stalled for a couple of minutes reading that then, with a deep breath, I pulled down my shorts, hung them up, and wrapped my towel around my waist.
Washing under the showers is the first step so I went in search of them. Now I was confronted by the first people I had seen: an old couple reclining on loungers wrapped in their robes; no problem. I found the shower room without seeing anyone else, I hung up my towel and entered. Around the walls were maybe a dozen showers each with an individual control, there were no curtains or dividers, it was just one big open space. I chose a shower in the corner furthest from the entrance. At first there was no-one else in there but soon two women - naked of course - came in. Almost on principle I began to get an erection so I turned into the corner, facing away from them, and kept washing. It must have been one of the longest showers ever, I didn't dare to turn around until they had gone again. As soon as they did I rushed to get my towel and cover up again.
The next step was to warm my feet in a shallow pool surrounded by a low wall for sitting on. The wall was wet so no towel, instead there were these blue plastic mats to sit on. Again there was no-one there and this time I was undisturbed whilst I waited the required five minutes. After a quick check of the instructions on the wall outside I went into one of the saunas; inside you were required to sit on a towel so I kept mine around my waist. Inside was a couple similarly dressed, the woman's breasts visible, I looked the other, thought of other things and managed to avoid a hard-on this time. Next it was back to the shower room for a cold shower, "to close up the pores" or something, I don't know about that but a definite benefit was to clear any lingering erection that I had. The final step was a 20 minute rest. I decided against the large jacuzzi, where I could see several people, in favour of a lounger where I closed my eyes to avoid any stimulating images.
After the rest I started the sequence again. The shower was uneventful but trouble struck at the foot bath. I was already seated when a couple sat on the other side, she was directly opposite me so I had a clear view of her breasts and genitals only a few feet area; of course, she could see mine too! Straight away I could feel my **** stiffen, I thought it would be too obvious if I stood and walked away, so I kept my hands in my lap hiding my penis, stared down at my feet and thought of unpleasant things. I was expecting her to start shouting at any second. Fortunately this my counter-measures were enough and the crisis passed without any alarm from the couple. When they left I headed for the steam room where it was so steamy that I could barely see my own feet; no problem there.
The rest of my visit went without further embarrassment. Afterwards I realised that as long as I could avoid an erection I rather liked being casually naked in a mixed group. Since that first visit I have been to saunas a number of times, also to a naked beach on a nearby lake, and no longer have any problems with an unwanted erection.
