No Mankinis at Mystic Hot Springs 

Pin It
As a longtime hot-springer, I found the cover story about Utah’s hot springs interesting [“Into Hot Water,” Aug. 26, City Weekly]—especially concerning attitudes about nudity. I’m a naturist but recently began wearing a two-sided thong that I made using a thick material to appease the prudish people who are present but still allowing for a whole tan. Thus, the stage was set for my entrance.

I went to Mystic Hot Springs this summer and enjoyed the hot water. Owner Mike Ginsburg came by and did a double take but said nothing. Later in the afternoon, he came over to me at the pool and said I was giving off bad vibes. What? Well, I suspected it was my swimsuit and told him such. He said I had to leave. I told him what was disgusting was allowing people to wear clothes into the water. This is not a laundry!

The mystery is why Ginsburg would buy a commercial hot spring while being so negative about swimsuit styles. If we were all nude there, this would be no issue at all.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
