Being naked gets one in touch with oneself and exposes theirself to the world unencumbered by pretense. It is in fact the ultimate expression of liberty and freedom.

I take nakations frequently. In my own home.

I see no point in ruining other peoples' days.

It's just a cheap thrill. When the adrenaline runs out of going naked, and you get accustomed to the nudity it's just another vacation. Even go adult and get to see people having sex in the open or doing it yourself and in the end it'll get old.

You want to enjoy your vacation you have two options keep doing interesting things or exciting things. Doesn't matter if it's a nude beach or a zip line tour keep shaking things up.

Nude is not Rude

I can tell you have never been on a nude vacation. the best part about them is the social interaction. You meet people from around the world. So many people become life long friends after meeting at nudist resorts.
You are right, the novelty of bare skin is gone after a few hours, so it's personalities that take over. Nudism attracts friendly nice people and that's why nice nudist resorts have a high repeat guest rate.
Zip lining you will never make friendships like you will at a nudist resort.

I tried it one time but I found out they are not fond of it at Disneyland.

Here are two reasons why I shouldn't: I'm old and fat.

There are plenty of us out there. It is not about how you look it is about how you feel. It is not something you give up as you age. And beauty is necessarily due to looks. My great grand mother was outside into her 90s.

2 reasons not to. 1. If you're as pale as the moon.
2. Old men. Went to a nude beach as a kid (it was a French/Dutch island) if you're a dude looking for some hot chicks, you will be treated to old men waving their thing around.

A consideration I take serious after being topless and spending the day out on the boat and burned the Ta Ta's.

The Sun definitely seems more penetrating and the burning rays feel stronger on the skin than when I was a child in the 1960s. Higher skin cancer rates and the diminution of the upper atmosphere ozone layer at the poles and middle latitudes is not mentioned in the media at all today, but it's effect is all around us. Australia now has the highest skin cancer rates in the world.

Ozone and UV: Where Are We Now? - SkinCancer.org
www.skincancer.org/prevention/.../ozone-and-uv-where-are-we-now
The stratospheric ozone layer absorbs most of the harmful ultraviolet B (UVB) ... Therefore, ozone loss is a serious health threat. ... Since 1987, the Protocol has been updated seven times, and CFC production is now globally banned. Now ... that ozone is only about three percent below the levels seen in the 1960s and 70s.

When I was 18 I got these really nasty sunburns on my arms that resulted in gigantic fluid blisters.  The arm hair there wound up growing in even darker and thicker than before.

Your kidding right? It's an excuse to apply the sun screen. And if your doing it to yourself your missing the point.

You are being humorous, I take it? Skin cancer is no joke and it's incidence is directly related to your skin type and the duration and extent of exposure to the sun. I was simply being sensible about really enjoying being out in the sun, naked or not.

To my friends that ask about the self-consciousness of clothing optional beaches: "So do you dress every morning in the safety of your closet?" Basically, who cares, except for those raised in a strict, body-ashamed, (usually conservative) religion.....

Here's the thing: the people we want to see nude are modest, while the ones we don't want to see nude are shameless.

I am the owner of an average penis. Therefore it has qualified me to never go naked in public.

Get over it. Guys avoid looking at other guys junk and girls don't care. Be more worried about weird tan lines and your weight.

I am headed to Haulover Beach for Labor Day. It is America's best clothing-optional beach and will be full of beautiful people. Not everyone will have attractive skin but skin is not what makes us beautiful.

We all have our own definition of what attractive is. Mine should be irrelevant to you.

It's the modern technology owned by other people that is the problem. If you want your naked form captured and sent who knows where, then strip off and hope for the best.

Then go someplace where you know nobody and nobody will know you. Try a foreign land where there are a lot less people who are uptight about the human figure.

Anyway, most of you who have been around a ittle must know that humans tend to look better with a little cover.

Agreed. Few of us can long measure up to the mass corporate media ideal of youthful quasi-anorexia or muscle bound steroid container. In some ways that is the value of these communities, an appreciation for the full range of age and body types and the natural self denial required to participate. The slide show, however, was funny enough to be seen twice without wincing.

Well, if public nudity became common, maybe it would help some with our obesity epidemic. Then again maybe not; it could make having the physique of an elephant seal more acceptable and worsen things.

The photos of the slide show were great. I came up with the 10 ideas, the Huff Post travel staff came up with the photos to match the reasons. They get a lot of credit. Tom
