Been here for a year now and still never visited a sauna.

I guess the idea of frollicking around with a bunch oth other naked blokes doesn't really do it for me. Besides, I wouldn't want them to all feel physically inadequate would I.......

Now I suppose I could try sneaking into a womens sauna Laughing Laughing Laughing
but I think I might be discovered (although thinking about how I might be punished for my misdeeds gets me kind of excited.....)

But is there such a thing as non-segrated saunas? Promise I won't look. Really........... Cool

Now I know I sound like some kind of desperate dirty minded idiot. I'm not really....... ahh heck, who am I trying to kid?

Maybe at 5 star hotels, with their inhouse gyms and spas, they may have a mixed gender sauna. You'd want to check the rates if you're not a guest though.

That's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head.

jae.

There was a thread on this awhile ago. Try searching for it. Or, if you wan't the quick answer, "No".

THere are JimJilBangs where short and tshirts are provided but there are no nude mixed-saunas that I know of.

The mixed gender sauna is a myth, kept alive only by the wishful hearts (and dirty minds...tsk tsk Rolling Eyes ) of you boys.

The closest thing would be a jim-jil-bang (as kyle just said). It's a mixed dry sauna only, not a bath. Everyone wears shorts and t-shirts. The shower/locker rooms are segregated.

Guys, please give up on the mixed sauna. It doesn't exist!

Ah,... jeeze,

another penguin fantasy ruined by the hard cold facts of reality.


Next you'll be telling me that the south immigration department actually doesn't give a a farewell send off (complete with dancing girls and buckets of strawberry jelly) to all the departing foreign teachers..........

There's a pretty good JimJilBang right at Bonghwasan Station. Line 6. Check it out.

At the major spa's in the countryside, they often have mix pools, but you wear a bathing suit. Saw something in the times or herald yesterday about these places.

Penguin, perhaps this is where you can step in, secure some venture capital, and start your own mixed sauna.

You never know, it could be the next craze on the level of "PC bangs"!

:)

jae.

you could always head over to Japan where the saunas are mixed! Bathing, wet saunas and dry saunas.

Saw a picture in a korean newspaper not so long ago with a big oversized sauna of mixed nude bathers. It was for real too. The dissapointing thing about was that the nude women were old adjumas. They were frollicking on the sides of the pools, and in the pools. Younger looking guys were all at one end of the pool stareing. Wish I had cut it out.

Not quite. You can go to some nice spas and rent your own room. In there you and friends (of any gender) can do as you please. maybe even invite the people from next door?
