It all depends on what I am doing, or plnnaing to do. If going to a hot spring, I can be naked take temperature down the 40 s, and if I am going to be active, such as hiking, I can take temperatures down to about 60. If I am just going to be sitting around or swimming in one of the local Rive4rs here in Oregon, , I prefer mid 70 s or higher. I am originally from los Angels and am definitely wrm blooded. To me clothing is for either warmth or protection. If it does not fulfill one of those needs, it isn't needed (or wante4d).

Nice to read your comments, I've been a fan since the days when you were in Penn.I am 69 and in my day, ereyvone had a separate outfit for PE, and had to shower afterwards. The ones who didn't dress had to have a note from parents or person of responsibiltiy.Things seem to be very different now in our schools!

Melissa, I love the title of your post, and we are both pondering the same qutesion lol. So far I plan to start writing for other publications about nudism, women and body issues. Also planning to do some outreach this summer at various events and outings! Like the World Naked Bike Ride for example. Another idea is doing a women's-only event. Plus if you do organize a top-free gathering in your area this spring/summer, we'd be happy to publicize it!

Melissa: I agree with your post.When I first got into nudism I was also met with diirismcnation. Being a single male, and also 18 at the time, people automatically thought I was there with bad intentions. I even had been asked to leave one place because someone said I had an erection. Suddenly, the management comes up to me and tells me they had several complaints, from people who said they saw me with an erection, even though I know they did not see me with one. I never had one in any way. I think they just wanted me out cause I was new to nudism at that point and cause I was so young.Your post also gives perspective from a female. Issues I obviously did not know of, but can relate to some.I do think there are places that need to open up and let singles in. That's the best way you're going to get more members and to benefit nudism as a while.
