Are people offended if they see others nude in a public restroom,gym locker room/shower, local y.m.c.a. or even at the hospital ?? What about a museum, a baptism or breast feeding?? I feel everyone would be better off living free and as close to the earth, wind and sun as possible without the textile world and their textiles interfering with nature. Clothing is only good for the cold weather.The materialism and status of fashion literally harms our youth every day.Body acceptance is exemplified in a way that one can only comprehend as a naturist/nudist. As a naturist from Ct.,I frequent solairrl.org , a nude resort right in Ct. and I have met the nicest most conservative people there. Nudism has nothing at all to do with sex. Try it and you'll agree.Be healthy,help others and live free. R...

Well, it doesn't offend me, but I have to say I do not want to sit where some stanger just had their bare butt. Does this town provide those little paper seat covers? I think nude resorts and nude beaches are fine for those who want to go there, but the whole town is a bit much.

Never seen a person with soiled pants?I've seen some elderly man come out of the rest room,and had that used diaper smell,sat back down on the seat.I always look at the seat before I sit down.Just because some one has clothes on,doesn't mean that there is no "leakage" from the previous person that was sitting where you are about to sit.It happened to my father one time and he smelled bad till we got home.He sat on a seat in a restaurant and the person before him obviously had something in their pants/skirt that seaped through the clothing onto the seat.So any where in public you may be sitting on something nasty.

Actually, anywhere that people congregate or live nude such as beaches or resorts have strict etiquette requiring the use of towels.It is totally unheard of to be seen sitting or lounging poolside without a towel as a barrier.As someone who has been to nude resorts/beaches I also must say that these people are by far more clean than any other human on the planet because they move from the pool to the beach and on to the hot tub all the while having to shower in between to rinse off chlorine, sand etc. It is actually a required rule that one must shower before entering the hot tub or pool even if you havent just come from the sandy beach.When my girlfriend and I would go,each day, we literally must have had half a dozen or so,quick public showers just like you would do at any typical beach to rinse off except with soap,nude and with others.

I thought I heard something on the news overturning and allowing public nudity in some towns in Vermont now. I am one who believes in freedom of expression. Dress the way you want....or undress the way you want. I never was ashamed of the human body and also believe it to be works of art.

If they do not want to legislate morality, too late they just took the first step.But we all have to take a look on how we were raised by our parents. Was nudity wrong, did they think that it would lead too sex in public? Myself do not think that nudity is wrong. But there is alot of unspoken rules that goes along withit.

Prudes and textiles have done it again. Nudists do not harm anyone, yet people vote to ban them. Why? What harm do people think nudists cause? I read recently that the only "harm" to people is that they CHOOSE to be offended. Why should nudists give up their rights to be natural just because others choose to be offended? This country is getting worse all the time. What's next? Ban nudist resorts so outsiders don't have to be "offended" if they happen to pass by? GROW UP! This comment is not to any particular person on this thread, by the way. This is just in general.

This is why people in Buffalo evolved with a warm covering of hair.

AMEN, David. Most European countries have far more liberal attitudes towards nudity and the human body than we do, and guess what? They have lower rates of sex crimes, pedophilia, etc. than most of the US does. There just might be a connection.

Sorry for the let down but I wouldn't want my kid,grand kids,or my wife and I looking at a 55 year old mans balls and his wife's vagina spread open in a gourmet restaurant booth or table. There's a time to be nude in the privacy of your home, but not in a WalMart store.
I will never be at this sh_t hole town, and as for Europeans they need to increase their hygiene standards. They all smell super bad with clothes on,I can't imagine how bad it would be in the nude.

You won't be doing it for long in Jacksonville FL Beaches. As soon as you're spotted you'll get a free night or 2 in jail. All of our beaches are family oriented. I hope that changes.

My problem is the hair - it is bad enough to find a hair from the skull lying around but I don't want to be in a restaurant and find a chest, or other, hair in my food that has blown over from the table next to me. On the beach it is one thing because you plan for it. (Even saying that sounds ridiculous I know)

p.s. I agree that if you choose to live in a naked town then you can't be bothered by it but if the town was originally clothed and changed to naked then it might be awkward. I like nakedness otherwise.

Me too around my home, without kids around, and for sure not while I'm playing golf. I'd be taking to many mulligans looking at the beer cart girls. I'd also not wanting to be setting on a golf cart after some fat,sweating ,greasy man's ass had been using the golf cart before me.
