NOTE: The above link contains
only a rough English trasnlation.
There are hunderets of Wetlook Websites on the Internet. Most of them
treat Wetlook in an erotic way. Some of then are gay- related. Only few
of them are based on communication and informations. Most Wetlook sites
have a fetish character.
But there are some Wetlook sites, wich don't want to be understood as
fetish sites. Nasse
Klamotten or NJCO, e.g. offer an information and communication
basic for all guys who are (for what reason ever) interested in wet
clothing. These reasons have not always erotic an character!
If you refere on polls in the Wetlook World Chat Forum and in the NK
magazine, you can see, that those who enjoy Wetlook for erotic reasons
like to get wet, but prefere to watch others getting wet. This is not
the same at all Wetlook fans: Especially in the german Wetlok scene you
can see, that Wetlook is understood as a kind of hobby. Manys of them
like to get wet together with their Wetlook fellows, but not for the
reason to watch others getting wet..
You can easyly compare this kind of Wetlook fans with some other
cultural movement: Though in the most countries, bathing naked is
forbidden and in the most western countries it is at least a kinda
filthy, it is established in the Netherlands, Denmark or Germany as a
cultural movement. The nudists feel more free and natural beeing
swimming naked and enjoy
the advantage of getting brown seamless. They don't have any sexual
Maybe this comparison is a bit daring, but is is a fact that the
clothed swimmers pretend that they feel free if they are not forced to
wear casual bathing gear. Swimming clothed as a cultural movement.
Others don't take it that seriously. For them swimming clothed is just
fun, htey mostly have on pool- and foam parties.
Has the word .Wetlook. to be re- defined? Is the word .Wetlook.
appropriate for all kinds of wet clothing prctices at all?If you take a
closer look at the word Wetlook, you will see, that it is focused on
the LOOK of wet clothes. But those, who treat the clothed swimming as a
cultural movement, don#t want to look at wet people and don't want to
Is there a difference between Wetlook and swimming clothed? Are the
clothed swimmers brobably no wetlookers, at all?
The North German Wetclub NJCO rents a public pool each three weeks in
winter and meets at a lake in summer. Those who don't know them might
ask: What are they doing there? Still after all, the club consists on
two thirds of men.
Well, they are bathing, splashing, jumping and after the bathing they
go to a pub for a beer. There is no sign of living up a fetish. The
clothed swimming is for them comparable with joining a soccer game, a
barbecue or a skat match. And the ladies are not misused as objects of
desire. There were guys, who are no members of the NJCO, who
demanded to expose the female members on the internet.That was
annoying! But right this is not the aim of the clothed swimmers in
Hamburg: Because here swimming clothed is nothing to stare at - it is
something to join!
