I Stayed Overnight at a Korean Spa and Got Naked

I never imagined that I would have the nerve to walk around other people butt ass naked, but here I was at Spa Castle doing just that. This was my first time at a Korean Spa, and I was invited by my homegirl to celebrate her birthday. This is what she wanted to do, and…
