My sister said that besides the little boys that Mom taught,there were sometimes boys her age and even through their teens present and naked.

When he was in he spent as much time as he could with his boys so there would be times he would be watching or more correctly both parents would be there.

I also don't think our family was an exception for the era.

Organized sports were not as dominant as they are today (which I think is a good thing) but their was sports teams. I also remember one time my brother showing up at this view room also naked. One of the reasons more woman watched than men was that in the era we are talking about men worked and the majority had day time jobs.

Hate to differe with the ones that say it never occurred but I do remember watching my brother in the viewing area of the pool, which was like a balcony for the Y in New Westminster, B. Author: Coleman's second post[Edit] Date Posted: 09/13/08 Sat The Y where my brother swam was in New West B. Our father had a job that took him out of town for several days at a time.

She also said that there were a few other incidents with groups of older boys.

I'll save them for some later post.- BK************************************2222222222222222222222222222222********************************** Re: YMCA Stories: female observers. Author: Coleman[Edit] Date Posted: 09/13/08 Sat I do not believe women were allowed to watch adult males swim but when it came to the boys they most definitely were allowed to watch their sons was a different time and Mothers in my parents circle of friends saw their sons nude on a regular basis.

She said she still vividly remembers his penis, pubic bush and his wiggling fanny as he retreated!

My sister is pretty conservative, so I never thought she would tell me all of this.

I really do not remember any embarassement with being naked in front of our own parents or parents of friends.
