You are absolutely fine to be naked in Oregon as long as you are not having intercourse or exposing with the intent to arouse. It is perfectly legal
to just be naked there, so a valid reason would be not owning any clothes.
§ 163.465 Public indecency.
(1) A person commits the crime of public indecency if while in, or in view of, a public place the person performs:
(a) An act of sexual intercourse; or
(b) An act of deviate sexual intercourse; or
(c) An act of exposing the genitals of the person with the intent of arousing the sexual desire of the person or another person.
(2) (a) Public indecency is a Class A misdemeanor.
(b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of this subsection, public indecency is a Class C felony if the person has a prior conviction for public
indecency or a crime described in ORS 163.355 (Rape in the third degree) to 163.445 (Sexual misconduct) or for a crime in another jurisdiction that,
if committed in this state, would constitute public indecency or a crime described in ORS 163.355 (Rape in the third degree) to 163.445 (Sexual
misconduct). [1971 c.743 §120; 1999 c.962 §1; 2005 c.434 §1]
Note: Section 3, chapter 962, Oregon Laws 1999, provides:
Sec. 3. The Oregon Criminal Justice Commission shall classify felony public indecency as a person felony and crime category 6 of the sentencing
guidelines grid of the commission. [1999 c.962 s.3]
So, the state won't force you to do anything. You can be naked and free now!
