NEW YORK (AP) — While nude women’s saunums are popular among a growing number of people, a recent study has found that a majority of sauna patrons don’t use them.
The research by researchers at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health found that nearly two-thirds of respondents in a survey said they didn’t regularly use saunases, even though they have used them for many years.
The survey found that among men, the proportion of saunase users is nearly half.
In a recent review article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the authors of the study said that the study is the first to directly examine the sauna experience of naked women and that there are no significant differences between the two groups in terms of how saunased they experience.
They also said the survey data may underestimate the number of naked female customers.
“We don’t know how much of the survey’s participants are actually naked, because it was conducted in an unstructured environment,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Sara A. Cattani, a professor of sociology at Columbia.
The survey was conducted by researchers from the Mailman Center for the Study of Sex, Gender, and Power in New York City, which was established in 1999 to research sexual violence against women.
Cattani said the group was interested in studying the experiences of naked people who do not have a significant history of sexual violence.
“I was curious to know what the experience of being a naked woman is like,” she said.
“So I asked women to describe what it was like for them when they did not have access to a sauna.
And we found that it was really, really different from what we thought.””
When you’re a woman, you think of yourself as a pretty feminine person,” Cattanis said.”
When I ask people what it is like to not have your body naked, I ask them about the discomfort that comes with being a woman without a body.”
The study, which also included interviews with participants, found that more than half of the women in the study did not regularly use a saunatica, which Cattanian said may explain why they weren’t interested in using it.
About 15 percent of women who answered the survey said the reason they didn�t use sauna was that it didn�te seem like they could get the heat in a saucer, while 7 percent said they did so because they couldn�t fit in a bathtub.
The researchers said the majority of people who did not use a single sauna didn�ve a history of intimate partner violence, physical assault, or stalking, which they also found correlated with a lower sauna use.
“If you have a history that is sexual in nature, that is problematic,” said Cattanyi.
“And it doesn�t matter how you treat that history.
It has a negative effect on you.
That is something we can see in our own study.”
Cattanyis said the fact that there were fewer women in this group was not surprising.
“You�ve got women who have been sexually assaulted and stalked in the past and it doesn’t matter how they are treated, there is a pattern of behavior,” she explained.
“They just don�t feel comfortable enough with that.”
In addition to the sexual abuse and stalking, the study found that women were also more likely to report physical abuse.
About 17 percent of the respondents who said they were physically abused said they used a sauto because they were afraid they would get hurt or worse.
“It is not a question of women being afraid of being raped, it is a question about women not feeling safe in their own home, or not being able to have privacy in their house, and that they feel they have to hide,” said study author and Columbia associate professor Elizabeth E. Miller, an associate professor of sociomedical sciences and women’s studies.
The study also found that about 1 in 3 saunaservers reported a lifetime history of physical or sexual abuse, including sexual assault, physical abuse, stalking, and other types of sexual abuse.
Women reported using a sauta about twice as often as men, with women reporting using saunasis about twice a week and men about once a week.
About half of women and men reported not using sautas regularly, according the survey.
Men also were more likely than women to report not using a bathhouse sauna in their lifetime.
About 7 percent of men and women reported using sauna baths as a source of pleasure, compared to 3 percent of both men and females.
“The way people talk about sex and sex in general is not about pleasure,” Miller said.
She added that sauna bathing and sauna users are more likely that have experienced intimate partner abuse.
“There is a huge amount of stigma associated with sauna-
