KissingPro saidThe steam room is a place to relax and generally remain quiet . I don't think women cain keep quiet for too long, and if in a group, it may start to sound like a chicken farm.
Actually I wrote about this happening a few weeks ago: my partner's doctor sent him to see a dermatologist with a suite in this huge luxury spa complex, with towering halls, Grecian columns, opulence everywhere. And no men.
It was all women clients getting different treatments, and as his appointment began I was directed to a waiting area. Women dressed all in the same monogrammed bathrobes came and went, too, between sessions. And they YACKED non-stop just like you said, a chicken farm, going a mile a minute, without any men around to say: "Doris, shut the hell up, will ya?"
And I suddenly realized that I was in the middle of a movie we had seen on TV just the night before: The Women (1939), from an early scene in the beauty spa. And it was horrible, just horrible. And I had to get out of there and just go walking around the rest of the spa, mainly to the leather and jewelry boutiques, anything but sitting with those females.
And yes, I've encountered that in saunas, too, one of the reasons I avoid coed when I can. Not to mention being in the company of naked men.
