Even in male-only saunas? Like at spa hotels and public swimming halls?

Yikes.

Yes. Well, towels, or bathing suits, or whatever. Towels are usually more for lying on, so that the bench doesn't get soaked with everybody's sweat.

Prudes :p

Admittedly, Finnish sauna tradition is more about sitting and talking than lying.

Eh. Yes. Though you aren't really supposed ot stay in there too long.
So, something like 15 minutes sauna, cold shower, 15 minutes steam bath, cold shower, 15 minutes solarium, cold shower, 15 minutes jacuzzi, cold shower, 15 minutes sauna, cold shower, than drop dead and drink some nice cocktails :-P

I've never even been in a sauna. :( I'd like to try one. Bet it's relaxing.[/QUOTE]

It is, very much so.

It's especially nice if you have the chance to do the following: run from a hot sauna into snow and/or a hole cut in the ice for a quick dip. Just roll/swim around for a minute or so, then get back inside. You'll tingle all over, and the tension just melts away.

But just sitting in the sauna, and taking cold showers in-between is also nice =)

Man I need to do something like that. I hold all my tension in my back and shoulders, and this past year it's been getting worse. I've been thinking about hitting a sauna to relax or getting a massage.

Sauna, definitely then.

There's two schools of thought whether you should sauna wet or dry. Personally I prefer wet, since I love cooling off by pouring a ladleful of cool water on myself while in a sauna. It cools, it relaxes, and it helps you if you're a first-timer in a sauna.

How often do you do it?

I used to do it weekly. Unfortunately, for a while now I've had some... stuff in the sauna in my apartment, and haven't been able to. But I enjoy it when I can.

Personally I wouldn't recommend it daily, more like weekly or maybe 1-2 times a month, however you prefer.

Find anyone of Finnish descent; we can track a proper sauna within a 200-mile radius.

I don't mind extreme heat and humidity when I get to choose it.

Well, first I was going to say something about her always being in heat and wet, but I decided staying slightly classier. And now I failed that Will Check on the second round. Darn.

Don't know about you other coonasses, but the weather on the Northshore has been pretty nice! Warm, but cool breezes!

I never knew it was a slur. I've always thought it was just accepted slang.

It may be a slur, but everyone here uses it to refer to each other. Unlike "coon" it doesn't really seem to offend the recipient.

The difference is that it doesn't seem like anyone here gets offended when an outside person uses it.
