I guess it's fine, tho many end up looking like lobsters.
All I know is when I served at the Presidio, we had a nude beach behind our barracks. We'd be run down that beach for PT. And the folks who decided to express their freedom of nudity, imo, were the last people that should have been shedding clothes...

Why do you care so much about being able to run around butt naked? Wear pants if you're a guy and a bra if you're a woman.
I'm trying not to be offensive, but I don't want to see your nasty bush.
Clothing was made for a reason.
Worry about more important things first.

To keep you warm! sooo...if it is warm outside you don't need clothes. And the whole point of this thread..apart from it being a slow news day is that there should be nothing ugly or wrong with someone being naked,it's the most natural thing on earth.So it says more about our society than it does about naked people.

Nudity serves what purpose? People feel they need to express every freedom possible, or they are being "oppressed."

Gee, if nudity became part of everyday life
it would destroy multi-billion dollar industries !
If everyone saw bare genitalia, nipples (about as erotic as fingernails, considering we all have them, even cats, dogs and monkeys) and backsides, on minute to minute basis ... just think what it would do to the careers of all those women famous for nothing more than being photographed getting in and out of vehicles with their skirts hitched-up
And boom crash would go the market value of certain female tennis players
and Sharon Stone would be washing dishes out the back of a greasy spoon restaurant
Oh no. We can't have widespread nudity. The economy would crash

So, everything calmed down for a while until Nudist number 2 moves to town. He routinely would walk around town and shop in the buff. The guy was harmless and everyone knew it, although he certainly wasn't pleasant to observe, none of us felt we needed to cover our childrens' eyes (my 12 year old daughter was probably by far the most vocal in town towards him, and would often tell him "EWWW! d00d, I did *NOT* need to see that!"). One day, he is walking down the bike-path in the buff, minding his own business when a nearby Elementary lets out. Someone picking up their kid from school noticed him passing by naked as a jay-bird, and called the Police. The Police looked into it and concluded that it was a matter of innocently bad timing, but no harm was intended by the guy, and he wasn't exposing himself to the children or doing anything in a sexual manner. Nevertheless, the City Council has decided that something needs to be done to further restrict the Nudity Laws to "protect" the children.
