God bless the nudists. Expedia just released their very scientific list of nation's whose citizens have admitted to sunbathing nude while on beach vacations.

The travel site enlisted Harris Interactive to conduct an online survey of some 8,599 adults in 21 countries to learn more about what people do on beach vacations. (52% of respondents said they were planning a beach vacation this year.) When asked the question, 320 people copped to sunbathing nude while on beach vacations.

So which countries bared all? Germans were most likely to take it off, with 15% saying they'd tanned in the nude; they were also the most beach-loving country surveyed. Spain and India followed in the #2 spot with 8%; Sweden, Denmark, Mexico and the Netherlands came in at 6%. The United States and the U.K. came in seventh with just 2%.

Love the idea of a nude vacation but don't know where to go? Check out Las Vegas' nude expo on June 1 and 2; to get your feet wet, you can head out in your birthday suit for a barbecue and pool party while there.

Correction: Sandy Bay is an "unofficial" nudist beach in South Africa. Clifton Beach is not a nudist beach, as previously stated in this slideshow.
