For the past few days, the temperature has been dropping sharply across China. But, in Chongqing, when conditions start to get a bit nippy, that’s when the nude swimmers come out to play.
Recently, around 20 elderly men have been seen braving the chilly weather to take a dip in the Yangtze River, attracting some onlookers who creepily take their photos behind some foliage.
Along one stretch of the river near Chongqing, there are many small hidden alcoves, commonly referred to as “nude beaches.” However, these aren’t exactly the sort of nude beaches you’d like to image. Instead, they are predominately populated by elderly men, 60 years old and up.
Chongqing has a thriving scene of elderly swimmers who love nothing more than freezing their balls off together. After all, nude swimming can be a very lonely thing to do alone.
