as a kid i was fascinated by the idea of going to my first nude beach. a strange thought perhaps for a kid, but when you have a set of C cups at the age of 12, you tend to become sexualized at a bit sooner than your peers. (it probably didn’t help that i had cable in my room and regularly watched HBO’s real sex).
the topless beach fantasies soon subsided, however, when i realized the type of people nudists “truly” are. the reality is that a majority of nudists look less like gisele bundchen and tom brady, and more like soon yi previn and woody allen. and while i would never judge one for being comfortable in the skin they’re in, the truth did dash my hopes of ever happening upon a naked george clooney type while strolling the sands in my birthday suit.
this past weekend, forty five members a group called british naturism took over the island of flat holm in the bristol channel. as the bbc reported, the naturists spent the weekend sampling “a wealth of history and wildlife during their visit.” oh that’s nice.
but as the sun (aka the british version of the ny post) reports THIS is what was really going down.
conclusion. no one should be judged. because underneath all the clothes, everyone is the same – they all look like americans.
