MEN – You’ll get x40 Man Points for Swimming Outdoors in the winter according to this handy book!
A man should always take the opportunity to have an outdoor dip. However, if another man suggests it first then it is absolutely vital to join in or risk looking a sissy.
- Do not worry about lack of kit. Pants or boxers are fine. Nudity is only really required on stag dos or those European beached where it is local custom.
- Go in properly. Getting wet to the belly button isn’t a swim – you need to get your head and shoulders under. Dry hair is the mark of a coward.
- Make sure you get a selfie. Ideally this should be you, wet in your pants, standing next to a fully clothed person shivering in their winter coat, on a godforsaken beach with the sun going down at 4pm.
