To start with my husband and myself are a 25 year, married couple and have been open nudists all of that time as well. Over the years we always believed that by the time we were in our 50s (we are 55 now) public nudity would be widely accepted, at least at public parks, beaches and even some streets. We have many friends that think the nudist lifestyle is not harmful to anyone, but yet much of the general public does not agree. We are ready to receive any of your comment, questions and/or remarks and we will do our best to defend our viewpoint. Since we feel it is easier to address someone if you can actually see who you are addressing, we have posted our picture. We do understand that this thread may start out addressing public nudity but may go off in different directions and we will try to follow where everyone leads. Have a great day!!!
