Let’s face it; at the baths you don’t need much to make an impression. It is just you and your towel, the bare essentials. However there is an old saying that says clothes make the man. With only wearing a towel, you wouldn’t think that statement would hold up in a bathhouse setting. Well you are wrong.
Besides that white towel around your waist, the only other item of clothing worn (if you can call it that) is footwear. Sandals, running shoes, flip-flops, socks, even winter boots. I’ve seen it all worn by men, clad in only a towel, at the baths. For me I prefer to go barefoot. The feeling of total and complete nakedness is second to none. It just feels unnatural to be wearing any type of footwear. Especially when you have to go in and out of the wet area (sauna, steam room, whirlpool). General rule, the less clothes you wear at the baths the better.
Barefoot essentials. It seems strange to me that men are so protective of their feet. They don‘t seem to have any problems with their mouth and hands. Plenty of mouths go in and out from one cock to another at the baths. But are any of these guys consistently gargling with mouthwash between blowjobs? And speaking of jobs, let’s not forget all those hand jobs and fingering that takes place. Yet I don’t see guys wearing latex gloves. But some guys will never ever go barefoot at the baths. Nope you have to protect those feet from fungus. Despite the fact you can as easily get fungus on other parts of your body from the sauna or hot tub.
Some may have the excuse of wanting to avoid stepping on any type of cum, urine and used condoms on the floor. Again it seems to be okay to slurp cum and urine during a blowjob. But stepping on it? No way. There is nothing that steams me up more when someone walks right through the shower area, in their regular street shoes. The person wearing the shoes wants to protect their feet. But why aren’t they thinking about the other people washing their feet in the shower area? It is okay to track in all this dirt in the shower area. But guys in footwear at the baths don’t want dirt on their own bare feet.
So it all balances itself out. If you HAVE to wear some type of footwear here are some tips from one who has seen it all; on guys feet that is.
Never wear your sneakers, not only for the reasons I discussed above. I have seen many guys over the years walking around the baths wearing sneakers or worse, wearing sneakers and socks. Major fashion faux pas as it makes one look like a germaphobe and ridiculous. It just doesn’t work. The only person who could possibly pull off the sneakers and socks look is a lanky twink over 6 feet tall. Certain individual’s have a fetish for twinks in knee-length socks. For everyone else, leave the sneakers in your locker. The only other guys able to get away with any type of footwear are the S&M leather crowd that wears leather boots.
Now you got rid of the sneakers (shoes) some still prance around in their socks. This becomes problematic when you are going in and out of the wet area. No matter how many puddles you try to avoid, wet socks = wet feet. It looks much more awkward peeling off a wet pair of sock before jumping into the hot tub (and much more stinky too!)
Again just like wearing shoes, socks look silly on someone at the baths. If you are a twink, you could maybe pull it off. Some guys actually like that look. If you are middle ages, forget it. You just look weird.
So that leaves sandals and slippers. But if you want an expert’s opinion, neither makes the grade. Instead try flip-flops. Flip-flops will make you and your feet very sexy. They are definitely the in things these days as there are countless websites devoted to men’s feet in flip-flops. Having the right pair of flip-flops just oozes sexiness and class.
But you need to buy the right pair of flip-flops. Don’t go cheap and buy the one-dollar paid of flip-flops. Go to the shoe store and buy a good quality pair of flip-flop, with a thin strap. The thinner the straps, the sexier the feet are.
You want your feet to be as free as possible, with no constrictions. Flip-flops are very easy to get in and out of. Just as you want to get in and out of some guys bed. Imagine having to spend time trying to get your sandals or sneakers and socks off. Flip flips give you that sense of freedom and ease,
Ok so you have gotten rid of your shoes, but still worried about your feet. You have athlete’s foot or whatever. This is what I do. Use foot powder. When I go to the baths I always shower beforehand and afterwards. Once I get back to my room I sprinkle foot power all over both my feet. Not only does it create a type of barrier around my feet, they stay nice and cool.
So off with those shoes and become footloose and fancy free. Your feet will be all the more grateful.
