Women senators were barred from the Senate pool for years

Auto Draft

Women senators working at the Capitol can still be left feeling secondary to their male counterparts, even though it’s been 86 years since the first woman was elected to the United States Senate. It’s all in the details for example, there was not even a women’s bathroom on the second floor of the Capitol building until recent years. One story in particular illustrates exactly the kind of separate treatment female senators would endure. Former Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) told The New York Times that when she joined the Senate in 2009, the doors to the Senate swimming pool had signs that said “men only” for one conspicuous reason: “There were at least two male senators,” she would not name them,€” who enjoyed swimming in the nude,” the Times writes.

So what’s it like going on a nude beach for the first time?

Auto Draft

Why getting naked on holiday is a big thing in Germany

Why getting naked on holiday is a big thing in Germany

When I was a kid, my father always used to sunbathe nude in our garden at weekends. In public pools, children of all ages were allowed to run around naked all the time. In Germany, nudism is known as Freikoerperkultur (FKK), Free Body Culture. When you travel there, you’ll see that baring all is normal in saunas, swimming pools, the park and on the beach.
