    I am not gay but if I was wondering around a beach naked I would get an instant boner. The excitement of walking around with nothing on how could you avoid it?


    Thus is always the hypothetical worry. It's not an issue in reality. And if it does happen just don't be waving it about. Ly down or go for a swim.

    The fear of getting one is usually enough to ensure that you don't

    Straight men don;t have erections now?

    Do NOT ask me how I define the terms "man", "woman", "male" or "female" when you reply to this post. You know the answer and it's probably irrelevant to the discussion :)

    I would vote in favour of the gays getting married instead of forever being condemned in God's eyes and not being part of progressive multicultural more Irish than the Irish themselves colourful vibrant big logo fading to black dramatic drum bating musical score to discover Ireland ads Ireland thar it is.

    You could have posted that in any one of the last five threads I read before this one it would have been more apt!

    This is far too complex a statement for me, I thought gays could now marry or are I missing some subtle point. This thread was about naturism as far as I could tell.

    Yeah I was once nude in a Jacuzzi in Prague with 4 beautiful women. We were chatting away and having a great time. I was in heaven until a load of fat middle aged men jumped in. the Madame gave me my bill, It kind of ruined the fantasy.

    I was on a nude beach/lake in Germany, it was a bit odd at first, but got used to it very quickly.
    Word of warning to men - don't go in the water...the shrinkage on exiting the water cannot be hiden.

    I was interested to find this article online:
    http://http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jul/30/skinny-dipping-is-not-a-crime-swimming-naked-dive-in#_=_

    Daniel Start is the author of a book about Wild Swimming, a little goldmine of places to dip in the UK: the book isn't specially about swimming naked but as you can see from the article, people who love the feel of open water on their skin will naturally do it, and always have!

    As he says, the art is in the etiquette. (And local knowledge)

    Lovely sunny day today in South Dublin, found a secluded place and stripped off. Twenty minutes later I was grabbing my clothes in the midst of a hailstorm

    I've never understood the Irish squeemishness around nudity.

    It's because we're very pale and fat!

    When I was in Germany a few years ago on business, there was a sauna in my hotel. Not a single person in the sauna, steam room or jacuzzi wore any clothing. The Germans and other Continentals have the right idea - wearing anything in a sauna is just plain silly. Your skin needs to sweat and breathe in a sauna. The only thing you need to bring to the sauna is a towel to sit or lie on.

    And from a sauna it is just a short hop to a swimming pool or beach. Who the hell wants soggy wet cumbersome swimsuits? It really is best to swim in the best swimsuit of all - your skin. The same goes for sunbathing around the pool or on the beach - who wants unsightly tan lines? You get an all over tan in the buff.

    Once you sauna, swim and sunbathe naked you won't want to wear a swimsuit again. It really is better to go bare!

    Sauna I'd be quite happy to do but for some reason the Jacuzzi with a bunch of nudes would put me off.
    Would they have been mixed?
