We don't care if the whole population adopts social nudity.  We only care if the whole population becomes TOLERANT of social nudity.  Let them have their clothes.  They need to let us live without ours.
The best post of the lot.

It has been said many times that the last person you want in a police force is somebody who would apply for the job.

Complementary is a better word than alternative.   The pills and surgeons knife complement the natural lifestyle  but are there as a last resort
As one physician said to me about surgeons: "The operation was a success bu the patient died."

It's definitely not too cold for outdoor nudity but the weather is far too miserable for me to want to stay outside for longer than necessary.
In spit of this I managed to trim down the meadow flower slope opposite our dining room windows earlier this week.

General Naturism Discussion / Re: UK London restrooms go gender neutral

Not sure if this is relevant but there is a shot in the UK edit of the film "The Full Monty" showing a woman urinating in a men's urinal.

Unisex toilet facilities have always been commonplace in French cafes and restaurants.
In larger establishments there would be a room with the WC cubicles and washbasins with a screened corner containing urinals while in a small café there would be a single WC cubicle with the washbasin and a discreetly placed urinal in the anteroom.

Most rules should say what IS LEGAL, and not what is illegal.  And, laws should be broadly worded to legalize normal human behavior is legal. 

Its legal to go naked.
Its legal to be partly naked
Its legal to talk to people or look at people.
Do whatever you like as long as nobody else is being actually hurt.   Hurt means physical or financial injury.
You'r getting back to:
"The only proper freedom is the freedom to go to hell in your own way and should only be overridden by the duty to take nobody else with you."

Without seeing all the details It's difficult to know but it looks to me as though the nudity regulations were made by different sub-committees and ratified "on the nod" by the main council.

Free Range Naturism / Re: How was your month for Free Range Naturism?
« on: September 16, 2018, 07:05:36 PM »
Jbee's post reminded me that I felt a bit strange the first time I went to the Euronat baker's to get fresh croissants and rolls - I was the only nude amongst a couple of dozen fully clothed customers, but I was in the right - not them.


That looks like a great place to live or to visit.  Shame the natives don't take advantage of their own freedom.   Or were you meaning tourists from other places who don't go naked?
The two dozen were all holiday visitors who were (presumably) naked at other times.
Apparently they dress when they get out of bed so that they can undress again later in the day.
I stay totally naked 24/7 except that my wife likes me to dress for dinner in the restaurants so I wear espadrilles.

I wonder where I stand on all this - carefully laying the dinner table to the "correct" knife, fork, spoon and drinking glasses set-up and then dining totally naked.

Which Boston? Your profile doesn't give me a clue.

General Naturism Discussion / Re: French bike safety ad

I agree that banging your head is difficult - I have come of bicycles and motorcycles without touching my head or helmet.
I have also gone over bicycle handlebars twice - once when the front mudguard came loose and locked the front wheel and once when I found out about the French "priorité á droit" rule the hard way. In neither case was my head injured in any way.

I seem to remember that "risk compensation" was deemed responsible for an increase in accidents to Volvos when  they were the acknowledged only cars with a safety cage.

I may have posted this in another topic but early this year when I removed my trousers for an X-ray I was offered a gown which I refused as I couldn't see that an extra layer of cloth after needing to remove one would improve the image.
My explanation to the effect that I would be naked on the beach next week and they had seen it all before many times so why bother was accepted without a murmur.
