I've been in the Banya with quite a few Finns, and let me say that I've never met one whom nature hasn't well endowed. There is nothing like the feeling of one of them, standing there in their masculine glory - dowsed in sweat, holding a birch branch. They start lightly thrashing you with the birch branch - it's customary to get the circulation moving. Ah, the feeling of that birch rubbing all over one's naked body and the sudden release (proper technique is to build up momentum, to loose yourself in rapture and then release all at once with the birch). The sauna is always so much fun. BTW, every sauna I've been in also performs abortions and has pews.Papist said:ewwwwwww. Sounds pretty raunchy.Theoprovlitos said:Jake is right. There is nothing wrong with sauna. It is their national bath since in the past 6 moths of the year there wasn't running water to wash oneself so I guess the climate was an important factor for the invention of sauna.Jake said:Just visit the Finnish Orthodox Monastery of New Valamo and you will find a sauna right by the lake. It is a part of their culture and nothing evil.
However I must admit that a... gay sauna does have a touch of 'spice' in it. I guess they will be admiring eachother's beauty.
