"I tried a jimjilbang yesterday. It's called Seoul Zimzilbang, in Toronto. The wet areas are gender segregated, so the hot tub, cold tub and steam room are all nude zones. You are given a t-shirt and shorts to wear in the…"
"I'm going to be in Kansas City Mo for vacation with my husband. We live about 100 miles from there. Does anyone know of a Spa there that they could recommend. I want a place I can get a scrub -has many pools to soak in - steam…"
"I've been to two banyas. My favourite of the two is called Steamul Sauna, in Mississauga, Ontario (west of Toronto). They have two Russian saunas, one at 85C and one at 100C, a dry, Finnish sauna, and a Turkish steam room.…"
"Just don't be like one of those guys that makes things worse for himself by wearing swim trunks in the spa. Seriously. We're all guys here. No need to be embarrassed or ashamed of how you look. You'd miss out on a fully relaxing and…"
"Drew, there's really no rule book out there. The first time I went to a banya, I was a bit hesitant myself. Sweatlodge is a great place to try it out. Everyone was really helpful. I think the regulars knew it was my first time, and gave me…"
"I have been to a place called Red Square in Chicago (formerly called Division St. baths), which, from what I have heard, is very similar to the Sweatlodge, except Red Square has a separate woman's facility as well. Mostly Russian was spoken…"

"I will have to second Everything that Stephen has said about the Chicago Sweatlodge. I frequent this place at least once a month, and I went for the first time about a year ago. It is a rare to find a place where it is perfectly normal to be barely…"
"A few years back my college roommate committed suicide. (His mother called me.) As I drove home that day, I saw the sun on the trees, and the blue sky, and thought: you idiot! You're _missing_ it!
He was bipolar.…"
"Titus, when are you finally going to come to America? You talk so much about people having to learn this or that to be taken seriously. At some point, for many of us to take you seriously as someone who claims that they understand America, you are…"
"Funny, I have always thought of the conservative as the coward. Their entire philosophy is built on the premise of not trying to do something new, to staying with the old. The very word, conservative is to take the easy way, to not challenge or push…"
"I'll second this one. Been in boots since the mid-90's. First it was Justin Ropers, then I did the Wolverine work boots for years(after doing construction then working in a factory), quality went down so I went back to the Justin roper…"
"I've heard screeds about some phantom "War on Women", but never from a liberal - just from conservatives yelling there's a boogeyman.
I shop at Hobby Lobby and live in the belt buckle of the bible belt. Have you ever been to one,…"
