    As long as you don't mind replacing your Touch every couple of weeks it should be fine. Okay, to be serious, the only way you could even think of using it in the sauna is if you had a water proof case and asbestos gloves.

    This is straight from the iPod Touch's specs page.
    It looks like the humidity probably would be okay, but the temperature... not so much.

    Environmental requirements
    * Operating temperature: 32° to 95° F (0° to 35° C)
    * Nonoperating temperature: -4° to 113° F
    (-20° to 45° C)
    * Relative humidity: 5% to 95% noncondensing
    * Maximum operating altitude: 10,000 feet (3000 m)

    http://manuals.info.apple.com/enUS/iPod_touch_2.1_Important_ProductInfo.pdf :
    Keeping iPod touch Within Acceptable Temperatures Operate iPod touch in a place where the
    temperature is always between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F). Battery life might temporarily shorten
    in low-temperature conditions.
    Store iPod touch in a place where the temperature is always between -20º and 45º C (-4º to 113º F).


    So, no sauna for your touch

    "can i relaxe in the sauna with my favorite song on the ipod? "

    No. I would never consider doing this.
