People have lost their sense of decorum and the social graces in general. I have books showing men and women of better times enjoying the outdoors. Both sexes were dressed in far more decorous and appropriate clothing. I couldn'f find any online photographs of these folks, just this artist's conception. The very long walking sticks are likely used for collecting ferns, a very popular pastime in the late nineteenth century.

The two lady hikers below exemplify why older times were better times.

The modern human is only a guest of Nature, not a participant.

I live in what most reasonably sane people would consider "the wild" about two hours outside of Fairbanks, Ak on some very private acreage. I'm regularly naked outside in the summer as it's an amazing freeing feeling. No one can see my property from theirs and no one ever just drops by so have never had any problems. If anyone ever did drop by unexpectedly it would be on them to accept my nakedness. After all what's the point of owning remote land if you can't hang out naked on it?

People who have never spent some quality time naked in the woods are missing out on a very primal part of the human experience. No one should be ashamed to be naked in the woods and it definitely shouldn't be illegal. Obviously your local park rules may vary .

Same here. No one else gets bit if I'm nearby.

Running around naked is fine with me. Especially if you look like a playboy bunny Be my guest. Unfortunately running around naked is illegal. I guess if you want to get on a sex offender list have at it.

I skinny-dipped when younger, it was fun. But now skin cancer means surgery once or twice a year even though I don't go in the sun much at all, years of tennis payback. Lots of naturist/nudist camps in Florida but I'd prefer no other people around as I sit in the shade and read.

It seems men feel much more comfortable being naked in the great outdoors, as a female I'd want a firearm with me just in case anyone got any ideas.

Naked, yes. Voluntarily, no. I survived, ok.
