Am I the only one who finds group mikvahs disgusting?

Just because its the thing to do, I went to the Ari’s Mikvah in Tzfat on Friday. This was the first time I was naked in a room full of men, I have been to many JCC locker rooms in my day, but old shrivly men talking politics in yiddish isn’t the same as jumping naked into a tiny pool of brown water with a bunch of smelly Chassidim. It was disgusting, and I think I’ll stick to lakes and rivers in the future. But nothing is complete without a video – I will be writing a full length post when I have time.
