Beijing’s overcrowded swimming pools have prompted older male residents to turn to a “nude swimming pond” on the fringes to beat the sultry summer heat. Hopefully this means there will be fewer of them strutting their ‘stuff’ around pool locker rooms, Apple Daily reports.
Surrounded by forest, the oval ponds are quite scenic compared to inner-city cesspools. This apparently makes them the perfect spot for schools of carefree older men to frolic about while letting it all hang out.
Female villagers say they don’t partake, but tolerate the pool.
This particular pond was originally intended as an irrigation facility but has since been abandoned. The water flows to nearby grasslands and farms, meaning the pond is thankfully not stagnant.
