This was such a delightful read! As a Finn, and an annual Ropecon goer, I've been raised my whole life into this coed sauna-culture of ours. My own father was actually born in a sauna, so I really love the place! When I was a little girl, the children were allowed to go to sauna with both the females and males of our large family - later on when I grew older, it became common that I went only with the ladies. However, nowadays with my friends I love coed saunas - for those very reasons you yourself found when visiting a sauna in Ropecon! It's relaxing, it is a place where we all are human - it is a place to talk about everything and not to talk at all.

I've been living a few years abroad and none of my shy English-friends understood my passion for sauna or how can it be non-sexual experience. I could've not written a description better myself, thus I hope many and more of my friends will get to read this!

Thank you so much for writing this!
