Meanwhile in Finland

“The aim of Kiiking, as a sport, is to get over-the-spindle with the longest shaft.” [Kiiking in the US is known as “I See London…” Going full screen and freezing the video at critical moments? Shame on you.]

    I lived in West Germany 80’s. European woman have a completely different code on modesty than I knew of. And I liked it. Especially at beaches. They believed in full body suntans. Sunny days were like a national Holiday. Seeing is believing, I tell you cause as a 23yo young man I wasn’t believing until I was there.

    Will never forget the topless girl I saw on a Barcelona beach in 2002. Absolutely gorgeous and a perfect rack. Couldn’t have been a day over 18. Degeneracy abounds all around here in New Jersey and still no topless beaches! Waaaaah!

    Bacon strips on the back of the underpants.
    Speaking of Germany, Kaiserslatern Strasse in Frankfurt is spellbinding – you’ll never forget it.

    Interesting, never knew anything like this existed but I could really get into this as a spectator sport. The simple chant “I See London….” always piqued my interested more than anything else I remember about being a kid and this is the adult version.

    I remember as a kid we would swing as high as possible on large playground swing sets and then, at the height of the forward swing, we’d ‘bail out’. Most of the time we landed on our feet but a few kids broke an ankle or an arm on landing. Hey, and we did it all without gloves, helmets or supervision.

    Sid, I spent time (not nearly enough) in Barcelona and Majorca and the sheer volume and quality of beautiful women in those cities was nearly beyond comprehension. If I had my life to do over I do believe that I would have planned it and worked to spend far more time there, maybe even to the point of permanent residency.

    I was once in Amsterdam with my friend Captain Monroe and we were standing in the middle of the central square waiting for the light to change. We were commenting on the overwhelming number of extremely beautiful nordic women in Amsterdam. I asked, “Captain, where are all these stunning nordic blondes coming from?”

    At that moment a stunning nordic blonde came by on her bicycle with a kids seat on the front and a kids seat on the back and in both of them were perfect nordic blonde little girls. Captain nodded toward that scene and said, “Where do the come from? They’re manufacturing them.”

    One hopes the beautiful Nordic people start coming back in larger numbers, as it seems that they are being replaced with the more swarthy, North African type of Nordic people.

    I was lucky to have spend a couple of months in Australia 50 or so years ago when all the beaches were topless except those that were fully nude. As yes, I’ve a fond memory or two of those days.

    Gerard, I changed your comment in my mind to Captain Morgan.

    You’re welcome.

    Finns are utter badasses.

    I spent three months all over Europe summer of 1983. Public nudity was the M.O. in every park in every city I visited. Must have been a couple thousand naked ones occupying the English Garden in Munich. I met Gretta, from Turku, Finland in Paris. She invited me up her way and I arrived in Turku at summer solstice. The Finns were drunk to the gills. The sun never set and neither did the parties. Gretta was very blonde and mine was black and it was surreal to see so many gorgeous young women turning their heads to look back at me while I held onto Gretta’s hand. But I was so impressed by Amsterdam I asked the owners of a sign shop if I could work there. They thought my skills were impressive enough to be hired…. however…. they spoke perfect English, sounded American, and asked me if I spoke Dutch. Nay was the answer when I confessed to speaking my one and only language.

    In my experience gals will exhibit whenever given the opportunity. As an example, gals here in Minneapolis, at the U, will take the first March day over 50 degrees to lay out on the lawns of Frat Row in bikinis. Gotta start working on the base tan!

    But in the West there is a rule that the men can look but not comment, within the girl’s hearing. Guys are supposed to act like they aren’t noticing, unless of course, it’s a guy she wants to notice.

    I suspect the freedom of public nudity in western Europe is over. The New Europeans, late of Africa, don’t know the rules and believe that any girl showing is inviting sex.

    Responding to Greg’s comment, above: I also lived in W. Germany in the 1980s (83-86). And what Greg says is absolutely true. Darn shame smart phones were still more than 20 years in the future.

    Oh my, a summer spent TDY in Norway, Denmark with a side trip to Sweden was an eye opening experience.
    The women over there were life changing. Simply beautiful.
