Does anyone from Sheboygan remember this, or has more information about it?
This is a Sheboygan newspaper clip from 1940 which says that the girls were supplied with swimsuits, while the boys had to be naked for these swimming classes.

That doesn't seem to fair for the boys (embarrassing, if you got an erection) sounds very strange for the 1940.

anyways that a silly little piece of news!

It is not silly news. It is part of Sheboygan history, as well as American recent history up to at least the 60s, where boys were mandated to be nude during swim classes, whether at school, YMCA's, camps and other places.

We had to swim nude in HS,while the girls had their suits supplied to them. Never heard what the reasoning was for this.

All boys should experience nude swimming at school.
It's a very liberating and enjoyable experience.

I had necked swim classes. Did not cause any damage even tho I went ten hut in view of others . Necked swim teaches how swimming is easier when nude and could save one's life by not wasting time looking for a swimsuit. Kids actually did it necked. Also, we had naked warm up exercises out of water. I wished all of the class was done in only a number 10 bike. Basketball was done shortness for example.

How come the girls did not get to swim nude as a choice? They like to go nekked sometimes. PLUS, not having a suit would speed things up. Back in l950 the U of W at Madison had nude photos taken of new students. If there was an objection the photos were skipped. The parents found out and had the snapshots destroyed. It is one thing to swim without a suit and another to getting pictures ala Playboy. The photos could have been stolen or at least passed around.

The age of the average person who learned to swim nekkid is far geater than than the average age of the person who learned to swim in spite of wearing a swimsuit. Add this to the fact that swimming nekkid almost never involves drowning means that if one is concerned with their wellbeing that they should be allowed to do it nude. For those of you who are opposed to gay orr lesbian marriage and want to know if the other is male or female means you should be allowed to skinnydip so one can tell.

Another good reason for males swimming naked is to tell immediately if one is in an illicit state of arousal.
Alo another reason why they made boys swim naked in schools and other places is because boys behave better when they are naked.

If there is a state of arousal it can be hidden. The Japanese are known for having festivals involving topless women and huge replicas of the male winky. Having entered into a state of arousal would be the prefect time for a sidewalk party hostess to perform community service by showing how to don those elastic thingies. When a state of arousal is acheived the male body maintains the same weight while gaining volume. This means the male body has more ability to float. As for better behavior what if the boys have been drinking heavily and then drop trou? What if some of the lads were gay? Imagine having part of the class having a boingfest and trying to teach.

Harry, what age were you, and what year was this when you started nude swimming at school?
Never experiencd it myself, but I know that many schools which had a pool swimming nude was obligatory, the boys had no choice.
But like you I would not have found it as such a big deal because we often skinnydipped as boys, and we found it enjoyable.

I was 14 and was growing down below. At one point I shaved to see what it would like to be to be 12 and have a new crop while swimming. I liked to be stared at , also. This was back in 66. I shaved from time to time to get a reaction from perverts at health clubs.

I had to wear trunks when swimming. Trunks do not stay in place. I had to yank them up or my pubic hair or glutes would be seen. Diving off the board could take them almost off. Only a woman would think trunks were modest.

The girls were supplied with swimsuits, Did the girls all wear them? Did the girls wear panties only? Hillary Clinton was photographed nude for a trash science project at her school's pool. Woodstock had girls washing in the nude on film. There are many teenagers who become pregnant but try to convince us that they are not morally lose and would not skinny dip. Bristol Palin, for one.

Ever notice nobody ever drowns nude? Also, the average age of people who learned to swim nude is much more than those who learned while wearing something? Nude swimming means one can live longer!

And you don't regard as perverted your own effort and obvious desire to draw the attention of other naked males and be stared at while completely nude?
