Take A Bath In The Dark

Ever since I was a small child I’ve enjoyed taking a bath in the dark. These days I usually shower but when I do take a bath I still like it to be as near to pitch black as possible. Hotel bathrooms are often best for this as they don’t have windows. I find it relaxing and I can let imagination run riot and enjoy acid flash backs; or just create new hallucinations in my mind. So I see a hot bath in the dark as a real trip. You don’t even need to take drugs coz you can achieve the same effects without them!

Among my friends I only know of one other person who likes to take a bath in the pitch dark like me – and of course he’s a real stoner. So tonight I thought I’d check online to see what a quick search on this subject brought up. I was pleased but not surprised to find someone into shrooms suggesting it was better for hallucinations, but I was saddened to see a piece about some women taking baths in the dark so they didn’t have to see their own bodies. Others suggested it was perfectly normal to bath in candle light, but somewhat freaky to do it in the pitch black as if you were in a sensory deprivation tank. I don’t care whether it is normal or not! As far as I’m concerned it’s a groove sensation and I’m gonna carry right on doing it!

And while you’re at it don’t forget to check – www.stewarthomesociety.org – you know it makes (no) sense!

    I once went in one of those flotation tanks, my it was freaky!

  3. mistertrippy says:

    I love that sort of thing – freaky deaky to tthe beat y’all! Not so keen on literal acid baths but I think TMITIM means a psychedelic bath which is exactly where it is at!

  4. The Man in the Iron Mask says:

    Yes, something like the flotation tank/bath of surprises in the film ALTERED STATES…

  5. mistertrippy says:

    Yes I liked Altered States. Very trippy!

    Get your hair cut, have a bath!

    I have never really replied to these blog things before – but I read your filth, & feel reformed …. I really like dark hot sweaty batheospheres too… [the condensation really does it for me] – Jaques of course wouldn’t let me go down with him because he said I’m claustrophobic- [NOT fair- I am nearly 86 now and I still do yoga] … anyway… I like to buy up tin baths from architectural salvage yards, and I all order my knees pads from Argos [$29.95 while cocks last] – I’d hate you to think I was crawling just because you’re famous and stuff… but tin pan alley… teenage mutant ninja turquoise… oooooooh… etc… & so on..

    I like to sit in the dark in a hot bath and hallucinate that disappearing down the plug hole. It’s the zen of acid trips when you become one with the water!

  9. Sid Snot says:

    Are you on drugs?

  10. Lucy Johnson says:

    Mindy Stardust seems to be an intriguing character!

  11. Peter Pervert says:

    I like to take my bath with the blind drawn up and the light on – that way when i wash at night the neighbours can get a good look at me! Sharing is so much more fun than locking yourself up in the dark!

  12. Dave "Oz" Zack says:

    Peter – call yourself an exhibitionist? There’s a good chance no one will see you if you bath nude in your own home! Instead, you should try nude ablutions at popular bathing spots in rivers, streams and lakes. I find around noon is often the best time.

  13. Lucy Johnson says:

    Skinny dipping is nice but is the world ready for a forty-one year old woman a good two stone over weight? Well some of the world probably is-but they have a wait!

  14. Lucy Johnson says:

    Maybe I should just find a nice nudist colony but then I’d have to be confronted by the sight of other peoples’ bodies rather than just inflicting my own. Ha ha.

  15. Dave "Oz" Zack says:

    I’m ready – I don’t like these skinny little things that are all bone!

  16. Lucy Johnson says:

    There is someone for everyone on this planet!

  17. Eric Divine says:

    That’s what makies it a wonderful world!

  18. Barbara Lynn says:

    You left the water running….

  19. David Dyke says:

    If you bath in the dark that proves you’re a victim of Masonic mind control!

  20. Michael Roth says:

    Taking a bath in the dark is a real groove. I never know if those are actually my hands soaping me up!

    And you can hallucinate they belong to anyone you like!
