Daily Weird #42 First the Naked Chef, Now the Naked Gym. What's Next... the Naked Politicians?
Do you want to see these guys naked at the gym? I didn't think so.
Can You Have Too Much Naked?
All over the world, countries have been hit hard by the recession. In Spain, they’re hitting back. The businesses there have decided to cater to those whom most refuse to cater to, thereby creating a new niche of customers. Who are these dregs of society that businesses have previously refused to accommodate? Fat people? No, McDonald’s cornered that market long ago. Ugly people? Nope, Walmart has them covered. Spain dug deep, sucked it up, held their noses, and started making special accommodations for..... Naturalists.
Naked people everywhere (but especially in Spain)- now is your time to do the bareass dance of joy!
There are 12 nude beaches, 2 nude swimming pools, and now there are “naked days” at the Easy Gym in the Basque region of Spain.
I don’t know about you, but I would LOVE naked day at the gym; all those buff naked bodies sweating all over the…. Ewwww. Maybe not. Even worse, you’d have to be naked yourself to enjoy it. Butterfly presses and extra body fat do not work well together.
The more I think about this, the more I am convinced this is not a good idea.
First of all, Naturalists believe that being naked is the most comfortable and natural state there is, but quite frankly, so is a guy laying in front of the TV peeing in a jar, and you don’t see most of them doing it. There are a few, but eventually they get married and have to give up their jar.
Next, there’s the unsanitary nature of having naughty bits sweating on seats where other people will be placing their (clothed or not ) naughty bits. Not to be too technical, but that is completely beyond gross. I’m sure the gym owner plans on sanitizing the equipment, but I have to seriously question how many clothed members he will lose once the naked people start sliding their naked unmentionables all over the equipment. Yes, yes, I know… “He’ll have towels!”… Sure, well, I don’t believe there are enough towels in the universe for me to feel comfortable sitting on something naked people have sat on, moved around on, and sweat on…how much sweat and other junk can a towel hold before it seeps through?
Is this a trend? Are naked people going to be taking over? I need to know now so I can prepare. If I’m going to have to get naked to get time at a quality beach, swimming pool, or (ugh) gym, I need to do something about my germ-a-phobia. Oh, wait; I’m not a germ-a-phobic. I’m a normal girl who doesn’t think all of her body parts need to be on display when she goes swimming or if she should ever decide to pick up that 2-pound weight.
The day that I become the minority in my anti-doing-stuff-in-the-nude stance is the day I buy a bunch of scarves and hitchhike to Iraq. Please tell me I don’t have to go scarf shopping.
Finally, in my list of “why this is a terrible idea”, we come to the outfits most of us typically wear to work out at a gym. There’s a reason these clothes are snug fitting. It keeps all of our dangly parts from dangling. There’s a reason we keep our dangly parts from dangling. It’s called pain . We don’t want any pain from the things that happen when you dangle too close to certain pieces of equipment. Then there's the damage jogging on a treadmill does to larger women-dangly parts. They will become even more dangly. Eventually, the naked women will have to throw said parts over their shoulders to continue jogging without tripping. This could get downright ugly.
And, as I mentioned previously, ugly people already have a place at Wal-Mart. Please leave our gyms alone.
