Gay Guide Finland
Saunas orginated from Finland. In the past they were places where the children were born and the dead were given their final ritual cleaning. Nowadays Finland, with a population of around 5 million people has around 2 million saunas! In most apartment blocks there is a sauna. Most Finns enjoy a visit to the sauna at least once a week. It is therefore strange that Finland only has one official gay sauna. Normally it is not appropriate for the Finns to have sex in the sauna. Nakedness is so normal that there is no sexual turn-on. For this reason a gay sauna is seen as a re-import, which does not mean that nothing happens in this sauna!
