'66 was most definitely some kind of peak for me - I got married in '67. I was in Newport Beach, CA and there was a lot going on. One particularly fond memory is Spring Break week on Balboa. Days at the beach, body surfing at the Wedge, parties every night, no formal place to sleep but it always seemed to work out.

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but there *was* a lot of nudity - nudity you could really appreciate.

I was 2 or 3, depending on which side of November you're on.

I was at Naval OCS in Neuport, RI the summer of '66 and was the shore patrol officer there for the fall of '68 for a few months. We lived in nearby Tiverton, RI and lots of lobster was the norm at $1.00 a pound. The smallest one that could be sold was 1.25 pounds, so $5 and a six pack made a great meal for the wife and I!

So all kidding aside (I myself included the Duluth Trading cartoon as a pretty good replica of me...) I imagine the thing about nudists is literally comfort in one's own skin. I get "sophomoric" at the thought because frankly, I don't have that level of comfort and if I'm being really honest, I'm envious of those who can live their life without worrying about what commercial advertisers say is an acceptable body. Maybe 0.000000001% of people look like Tom Brady or Halle Berry - why should 99.99999999% of the population be ashamed of that?

I dunno - just thinking out loud.

Late 60's & early 70's Onward thru the FOG. Wild Mountain Grape wine & no name cigarettes that were twisted on both ends.

The rally is on with a date of May 16-18, 2014 at the Suwannee Valley Resort in White Springs, FL.
I have sent PM's to some of the early posters that I thought, from reading their post, might be interested. If you got a PM and are offended, please accept my most humble and public apology.
For those who wish to attend, we are going to have a great time. I recognize that there are many who will not want to attend, for a whole lot of reasons, for you folks all I ask is that you leave us in peace as we will you.
For those who may wish to attend but are reluctant due to physical or moral reasons, feel free to PM me as a public forum is no place to discuss things of a deep personal nature.
Let me assure you however that the vision of Barbie and Ken is a myth. 99.9% of all attendees are just common folks with just common bodies. We have those who are handicapped, wheelchair bound, scarred and amputated. The overriding issue is what is inside a person; their character, not the temporary body that they have been assigned.
For those with a morality question, we have a broad spectrum of religions, from atheist to orthodox in our ranks. I will be happy to put you in touch with pastors and Biblical scholars that can help putting your mind at ease.
Go to the AANR website AANR | Nudist | American Association for Nude Recreation for more information and better explanations than I could ever provide.
If you think that a Naturist gathering is about sex, let me tell you right up front that nothing could be further from the truth. Overt sexual activity will get a person tossed from a naturist gathering without any warnings or second chances. It is just not tolerated.
We are about having fun, sharing good times and making happy memories. Join us if you wish, we are going to have a great time.

I guess I don't look as good as I like to think I did decades ago, but I've learned to not care. What is really important is whether I'm healthy and that is what I am concerned with. I'm not as healthy as I once was, but work hard to keep healthier than I should be in my 70's. That's the real challenge. When I was porking up—easy to do with a wife who is a gourmet cook and because there's a tendency to eat as much as I always have though my metabolism has slowed, I decided to lose weight and have lost 40+ lbs. in a couple of years. But that was done not to look good (my wife thinks I do no matter what, but it glad that I lose the weight because it is better for me), but to feel good. How I look matters, of course, I'd be less than honest if I said otherwise, but being as healthy as you can be also results in looking better.

As we age together, we still think the other one looks great. No women, young or old, is as beautiful as my wife, even after almost 28 years together.

If a naked rally was nearby, we might attend, but it is no big deal. I can always go to the hot springs if I want to be naked outside. But thanks, Snedwid, for the information and a good explanation how it works. Making fun of nudists is often a reflection of never having done it or a nervousness about how you look naked. It is ok with me to make fun of it (or anything else), but skeptics who try it usually find it is not a big deal.

I have never been exposed to it, but my concerns are things like arousal and the embarrassment associated with- and lust and coveting- or being turned off or digusted by people that should have kept their clothes on- I don't think it would work for me-
I'd rather keep my clothes on.
Shucks- I'm the guy that goes in the pool or hot tub with a t-shirt on because I am self conscious and fair complected- I don't want a sunburn-
Don't look, Ethel!
It was too late! She'd done got a free shot!

Everyone looks—curiosity makes you do so. Does anyone care? Most don't and the others are people you don't want to know. I don't think I'd want Wally around though. When nudity is the norm, no one gets aroused. It is semi-revealing clothing that causes arousal as your imagination runs wild.

I still think it would take some time to become accustomed to it before arousal would stop. Seems like that thing has a mind of its own...
