Public bath in river or lake?

Posted by leowwang69 on 11/4/2012 at 20:46

Hi
I am a male exhibitionist and would like to konw if there's any place I can shower in river or lake so that people can watch me? I know men take piss on street in vietnam, so I am wondering if I can let people watch me in a innocent situation(bathing in river in village area, taking piss in public or anything).

Thank you.

In most places in SE Asia it is not appropriate to show your body in public - you will notice that many SE Asians when swimming actually wear shirts. In villages it is more conservative, women when doing laundry in the river will remain fully dressed. Only children go around without cloths on.

The people who urinate in the street can choose to do so, but many locals consider them ill-mannered and uneducated. Such as in China they are called nongming, meaning village people. This is often said in opposite to wenming, or civilized. If you wish to present yourself and represent your country (whatever that may be) as an uneducated and uncivilized person you can openly urinate in public and walk around undressed. I'm not sure how the authorities would react to this if you did either around children or women, as I'm sure it could be punishable if they chose to do so, as rule of law is not often applied consistently.

I love the way casey answers the question as if it's in the same category as "should I wear tank tops to pagodas"

Exhibitionism is common in some places and Germany even has a club devoted to said "naturalists". But as far as I know, there is no such club in SEA.

It would probably take away much of the fun to do it in front of peers in a club. Could be that they just discuss techniques and compare notes.

Apologies to OP, I couldn't resist but perhaps this (his posting) is part of the experience as well.

@ casey. Good on you. For me it's the type of harmless oddity I don't want to be judgmental about but I just can't help finding it funny.

Hi thank for all the reply.
I am into innocent exhibitionsm, not a disturbing one. Enjoy people watching me and they think it funny or interesting.
I heard people bathing in river, can I wear sheer underwear so they can see everything? Besides, I don't like naturist club stuff, like comon people watching me instead.

Thank you.

No, no sheer, no exposing, no nothing. You MIGHT get away with this at a beach in Phuket or Pattaya (something sheer that is), but otherwise, forget it. This ain't Europe.

"It would probably take away much of the fun to do it in front of peers in a club. Could be that they just discuss techniques and compare notes."

No, seriously, they have clubs where people like to play ping pong or whatever in the nude. When I lived there it was kind pf popular. Even children went.

Come toCabodia-Phnom Penh.We have the best and most public pissing walls in the world and its customary to turn around to face the street when you shake off the drops.my girl even had a tuk-tuk driver she knew giving a shake as he waved and shouted hello.

BTW
I think it much more upmarket to do it against a Lexus,Hillux or Humma

Thank you sayadian! So instead of pissing, is there any way to take bath in public(or swim in sheer pants) in Cambodia? Thank you.

Posted from within Vietnam.

No where for you to do this work in Viet Nam.
Concept wearing what-ever they want also even wearing nothing is a misconception not only inconsistent with the traditions of Vietnam, but also violation with the law of Vietnam. (See 150/2005/ND-CP Decree on 12/12/2005).
However, the law were not be strictly implemented yet, still have a few people, ill-mannered and uneducated, disregarded for the law, pee near-hidden space on the street, but no adult would dare to have the thought go naked in public places or beaches.

Thank you Sheabirds and Madmacs

Thank you for the real information, though I am kind of disappointed. So nowhere in SEA allow people bath in river or alike?

When they do they cover themselves, the do not bath nude. Publicly nudity only occurs within the confines of the sex industry - with the exception of Songkran.

LOL This really sounds like Cranky Carrot playing a joke on everyone.

Actually this guy sounds more like Borat. I think I saw him down on Patong beach this afternoon actually...

I usually confine my queries regarding gratification through public urination to a different forum.

"Thank you Madmacs" 555

"Wang"... "69" ... And people are taking this seriously?

Incidentally, you can order your own "mankini" and live it up like Leowang69 for just a shade over 1000 bahts.

Happy times!

Cranky, so how come you even know where to buy a Borat mankini??!

Maybe Neosho was onto something... :-P

Maybe it's time for this thread to die as I am being bombarded with hideous imagery here.
