Is it true that families were allowed to watch boys swim naked when nude swimming was mandatory at the YMCA back in the 1960s and 1970s?

If so, were female siblings and classmates also allowed to watch?

    Nude swimming was never mandatory.

    Remember that this was the Young MEN's Christian Association. Women and girls would not have been allowed in to watch boys and men exercise in the nude, assuming that ever occurred. They would even have been clothed around their mothers.

    Put your tongue back in your mouth.

    No. I swam at the YMCA in the 60s. Nudity was not permissible, never mind mandatory.

    No – families had to be clothed while watching boys swim.
