Do you know the term public baths? Simplifying it, I'll call it a place where people strip naked, shower then soak together nude. Now that you know what kind of thing a public bath is, how open are you towards bathing with other people? Spoiler: personal experience(s) For me, it was never really an issue. I went to a japanese hot spring when I was a child and was perfectly fine stripping to get a soak. however, my normal dressing may be more on the conservative side, and the furthest to skin I show is when I wear shorts. otherwise I stick with plain old t-shirts. I don't know if I'm conservative or open, but I don't find anything scandalous about a public bath. on the other hand: I went on an overseas trip with my school to japan, and the accommodations we stayed in mostly had public baths and private showers. it had to take much begging to get my friends to enter the public bath of the hotel with me. even so, they kept facing the foggy mirror when showering, and didnt dare to enter the bath. why? it felt so nice too... pretty sure there were queues for the private showers... don't know because I never knew where it was since I never went there the public bath was really empty and clean since no one really used it when my male friends asked if any girls used the public bath, they were shocked when I said yes, which is weird since they usually go around class talking about porn is it a problem of decency? am I shameless? why are japanese the only people fine with public baths? I doubt its influenced by anime since I was not a huge anime fan the first time I went to japan. why are there so few latest discussion threads today? is the wuhan virus getting to the internet?
