Fascinating article. The times were definitely different. I'm not entirely sure you could "sell" gender-separated nude swimming today, even if it was still needful for sanitation and safety. In Japan, by contrast, gender-separated nude bathing in "onsen" is still quite popular and socially acceptable. I would suggest that it is just a difference in cultures. During the summers in the 50's there were swim classes for boys at Wright Junior College where I learned to swim.

Our feet sank into the sludgy bottom, and weeds grew underwater. My cousins, siblings, and I would paddle out into the middle of the lake, past the tall weeds, where we could swim freely.

One night, while diving into the starlit water, we practiced our clumsy but creative swearing, shouting forbidden words as we did flips into the dark lake.

You could be having a bad dream — or you could have just been a male student in a Chicago Public School swim class. For more than 50 years, high school gym classes in CPS required boys to bare it all during swim instructions — a policy commonly used across the country. Curious City reporter Monica Eng recently dove into the history of this policy after numerous Curious City fans asked about it. You can hear the audio of this feature on Thursday during All Things Considered.
The origins of nude swimming can be found well before the guideline was published. When the first indoor pool opened at the Brooklyn YMCA in , the organization required men and boys to swim naked.
