That's what other people say about naked men, isn't it?

Most nudists say nudism is about "body acceptance."    That is the antithesis of rejecting your own natural body.
I tend to think nudism is more about total people acceptance so, while I would never shave my body or have piercings or tattoos, I fully accept other people's preferences even though I sometimes find them distasteful to look at.

try walking or cycling down a road youve been driving down for years and think you know well..... youll see things that youve never noticed before.
That's exactly why I don't hire a car on my Fuerteventura holiday, but use the regular service buses to get around and when I am driving my wife never mentions anything interesting she sees until after we are past it just in case it distracts me from driving.
We were taking to the wife of a couple who do hire a car a little while back and she couldn't understand our attitude at all because she didn't drive.

one passing fuel oil lorry and 2 other trucks came by .... all of them whilst i was in the vicinity of the gate... no crashes so i guess they wernt looking over the hedge. ;)

Or, likely one or two of the drivers saw you and didn't care.  Being seen naked gives the lorry drivers an opportunity to accept that naked is normal. 

From observation of the many vehicles passing when I am naked and theoretically visible, drivers are concentrating on the road and will not see you unless you are very conspicuous.

Free Range Naturism / Re: Hiking without a net Part II

Hardly hiking without a net but a couple of years ago we were lunching, clothed as required, at a beach bar on a nude beach when a thunderstorm came on. It was still raining hard when it was time to walk back along the road to the apartment. I walked naked with my clothes kept dry under the towels in the beach bag while my wife arrived back at the apartment totally wet and disheveled.

Yes. There is nothing like a visual to impress on the mind the significance of an event. In conjunction with the biological science done it is perfectly clear.

I should have stated more clearly, that it works perfectly when done as nature intended.

Otherwise referred to as "Don't kick against the pricks."

But gold or its equivalent has always been closely associated with power and influence, although distinguishing cause and effect is often more difficult.

It's obviously not for nothing that any situation where corruption and nepotism is rife tends to be called "the wild west" or some derivative.
I seem to recall post Gorbachev Russia being referred to as "the wild east."

When I lived in Germany, the place to go was Croatia. If you go to the North Sea beaches, take a sweater.
Precisely - the North Sea is often cold but is usually colder.

These are all just further examples of the "Golden Rule" -
He who has the gold makes the rules.

I was totally impressed with him - but not favourably.

The only nude time I achieved on my visit to the Canadian west coast was a couple of skinny-dips in Sproat Lake driving across Vancouver Island and back.

As far as "groupthink" is concerned we certainly have a common core of beliefs about unrestrained nudity, but a wide diversity of opinion about how it should be pursued and on other political matters we probably have an even wider diversity.
I know that my political leanings are very much towards the socialist end of the spectrum, sometimes bordering on the communist, but tempered by my life's experience of knowing that whatever one's ideals the real question is "How do we get there from here."
No two people with the same ideals will ever agree on that one.

Try La Jenny in France, Duane.
You can be bored with naked golf there.

Holiday resorts like Euronat, La Genese and CHM Montalivet in France have bars where you can meet people and many other things going on, quite apart from the possibility of nude walking in the surrounding area.
This video taken at Village du Bosc, a small family run colony, is typical of the walks I have done there.

I agree with your point about enjoying the friendship of other men.  I have made a point of doing that.  When I was younger it was assumed that men would have several straight men friends. 

These days it can actually be straight male friendship regardless of sexual proclivities.
An example is a gay couple which we regularly meet on our Fuerteventura winter break with whom we are great friends.
