Author: James [ Edit View ]. A couple of times some guys mom came by to pick a kid up early or drop something off. But whenever it was a public meet where females were present we were required to wear trunks.
After watching swim team meets between other schools, I tried out for our high school swim team I attended Harrison High School in Chicago from and what do you know, I made it! As I relive this memory it also talks to how swimming has changed in six decades and all for the better. I went to my first practice session in our swimming pool and I saw no one wearing a bathing suit. It was strange seeing my swim team members jumping into the pool while their private parts also jumped. It was liberating without swim trunks and actually without the heavy boxer short swims suits it helped us stroke that much faster. I tried out for the relay swim team and lost by a stroke but I still remained on the team as a substitute. Then it was time to swim against another high school. When I think about it I find it hilarious to believe we ever practiced and competed completely naked.
Swimming naked: my high school swim team did!
The first time I saw a boy naked, I'd already lost my virginity months before. My boyfriend and I had Done It in one of those half-dressed, in the dark, "didn't know that's where we were headed that night" kind of moments. It was over very fast, and with all apologies to that boyfriend, it was not the time of my life. Seeing a boy naked kind of was, though. It was kind of one of the best moments, ever. I hope when the end is near and I'm circling the drain, that my life will actually flash before my eyes and I'll get to see this all over again. Because, man. I was 17, and the manager of my high school's boys swim team; I was friends with a lot of the boys who swam.
