It's a standard part of many workout routines (pictured: Russian bodybuilder Mikhail Sidorykov).
Sometimes guys like to do things in saunas, but I don't understand the attraction. Why would you want to touch someone who's covered with sweat?
Finland has more public penises than any other country in the world, except maybe Bhutan, so it makes sense that the sauna originated there (it even plays a role in the first Finnish novel, Seven Brothers.)
Almost every house has one -- there are 2 million saunas for a population of 5 million, and a Finnish Sauna Society with 4200 members.
Finnish saunas are generally hotter than the American versions, and you stay in longer, up to thirty minutes.
Can you imagine anything more dangerous?
Amazingly, the championships continued annually for 10 years without incident.
The city of Heinola will not be holding championships in the future.
The sauna remains an integral part of Finnish culture. But most Finns know how to handle heat with care.
