What is small, black, and used by thousands of men from all over the world?

So there I was, at a very intriguing, cultural, and historical "Turkish" bath house in Budapest, Hungary. It was a magnificent structure, with a variety of hot and cold baths, used by inhabitants back in the 15th to 17th centuries. I, having forgot to bring my own bathing suit, was required to rent. Three American dollars was a small price to pay. A small price for a small suit. I had high hopes of wearing my boxers under the rented suit, in order to protect myself from the...well, there's no appropriate way of saying it...you know. Anyway, it would have looked quite silly, me wearing my blue and white plaid boxers under a small black speedo that has most surely been worn by thousands of men from all over the world. Luckily, I could enjoy my bathing experience with confidence, being that speedo wearing is quite culturally acceptable in Europe. I must say that the Americans with me were not as culturally adapted.
On a similar note, I wish to dispell a common misconception. Contrary to common belief, the loin cloth is still in use. While enjoying a variety of baths, ranging from 46 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, as well as a wet sauna at 122 degrees, I and my company noticed a plethora of men employing the use of, yes, the loin cloth. I feel I cannot mention more of this activity without overstepping my bounds of public decency, something I must say these men had no regard for (particularly the man who wore his loin cloth backwards). I fear I have already gone too far.

There is one thing that is for certain about buying a sauna; you need to do some homework before making your purchase.
