Go to the bath

Original taken from I go to the bath!

Bath has always occupied a significant place in the everyday culture of the Russian people. And even in Soviet times, having lost many "architectural excesses", the bath remained an important part of the working people's life culture. There is no doubt that the low standard of living and the lack of communal amenities among a large part of the population in the Soviet Union contributed to this. And only a small stratum of urban aesthetes kept and augmented the traditions of the Russian bath (recall the “Irony of Fate” by Ryazanov)

It is curious that in pre-revolutionary Russia, the baths continued the Sybarite traditions of ancient Rome, whereas in the modern history the sauna of the Finnish type practically ousted the culture of the traditional bath from the minds of people. In addition, the very concept of "bath" has acquired a steady sexual overtones.

And thanks to today's alternatively gifted deputies, it has become very, very difficult to look at photographs of bath interiors without thinking about sodomy ...
