I wish I had the courage to come out and join the topless revolution - to openly go topless in public. Alas, I'm a closet nude. I've also been reading some information that suggests that bras may be the cause of so much breast cancer today. I'd love to chuck mine. If I weren't so big I would, in a minute.

Seriously, what's wrong with women going topless in public? Sure, guys would get all hot and heavy and we'd have multi-car pile-ups, and men doing idiot things for a quick look, but perhaps if more women went topless, we could prevent this. Nah...they'd still be crazy.

While we're at it, why not go for bottomless rights, also - let's just all be naked - everywhere - anytime. Could be fun. Before long, we'd stop thinking about it and just enjoy the financial benefits - no laundry, no big clothes bill - cool. I hate doing laundry.

I'm wondering if there are some serious health benefits along with the feelings of freedom.

I really do want to go for a swim in the pool at my complex - but I still don't even own a bathing suit - don't ever plan to own one.

I just came up with another reason to cook in the nude. On a really hot day, the spray from the spray on the tap feels incredible and cool. Clean up is easy, and there's no laundry! I don't have the frying thing down just yet, though!

This week I’ve discovered it is a luxury to be nude – most of the time life happens, and we must go with the flow. I was forced to have three very long days clothed. It was obscenely hot. Once, walking through a parking lot I thought, wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could be nude right now? There was a breeze, that would have cooled the body. Instead I was trussed up, belted, attached, you name it – and miserable.

I was watching a special on the nude lifestyle, how isolating it is. Why? Is it isolating or are the people involved just loners? Good question to ask, I think. I don’t like the isolation. Maybe the only way I’m going to have the nude lifestyle is to live it in the privacy of my own home.

Funny how we think our lives are ‘worst’ than anyone else. Talked to a friend who is going through a nasty divorce, dealing with an addictive, manipulative spouse, who is a masterful liar, turning family and friends with lies. I thought I had it bad. Nope, can’t begin to even go near that one. I don’t have a child who is being used like a yo-yo.

Unfortunately, there are evil people in this world. I think the recognition that there is good and evil is important. We must know good in order to understand evil and know that there is a difference.

I am still having problems reconciling my ideal nude life-style with my Christian faith. Is it possible?

So I'm surfing, looking for nude hotels, B&B's in the southwest US. Get all sorts of adult's only links. This is getting old. I'm just trying to find a decent clothing optional adult's only resort I can afford.

I think the adult's only thing is important. I have a serious problem exposing children to nudity. Doesn't work for me.

FYI - don't try frying pot-stickers in the nude - doesn't work well!

What is obscenity?

We are told the naked body, especially the naked male body is classified as obscene and rated as XXX. The naked female body is considered ‘adult’ but not as bad. Why? Is what men have more sacred than female? Surfing the really tacky late night cable movies, it’s perfectly acceptable to show full frontal nudity – I gather naked women are not as taboo as naked men. I think we also know what gender set the rules for ratings, don’t we. It’s almost perfectly acceptable for full frontal nudity with women, but men are just special, I guess.

The nude human body should not be considered obscene. Some of the things done with said bodies really is. Perhaps the best term definition for obscene should be degrading. Adult film stars don’t have a very good track record as to longevity and a wholesome life-style. Neither do rap artists, which brings me to what is really obscene.

I have a project due in a few days so need to be up working. I couldn’t sleep, so I decided to get up early to work and turned on the television to some HBO movie, featuring the very best inner city culture can provide for us. Every other word began with an ‘F’. I hate that word. It is terribly uncreative. I consider it the most obscene thing there is – ‘the F-word’. It is filth. It permeates our culture. Why not ban that word? Why not make it taboo?

Watching what went with it, rape, murder, drugs, and rap music…what nice wholesome things our teenagers are watching. No wonder our culture is if fraying at the edges, the middle and everywhere else. Any culture based on values associated with ‘the F word’ can’t possibly thrive and grow into anything worth-while. What are we doing to our children?

And they call nudity obscene.

Maybe we should do something about our priorities.

Happy Independence Day

Freedom isn’t free. It’s a good day to think about those who gave their all defending this glorious experiment of a Republic and to think about our magnificent Constitution and it’s Bill of Rights!

Today’s rant:

It’s hot outside. I live just 20 feet from the pool at my complex. Since I don’t even own a bathing suit, and never plan to own one again, I can’t go swimming. It would feel so good. I want to just slip on a pair of slides as I walk the dog and take out the trash. I don’t want to sit behind closed windows. I want to hang out with other people who share my interests. I do not want to play nude volleyball (I detest volleyball, except when Tom Selleck posed for photos to raise money for the US team). I don’t tan, I fry. I want nude social events that are true social events. Maybe I’ll become the nude Martha Stewart.

My real rant? I’ve been surfing various nudism, nudist, naturalist web sites for about a week. I really don’t like what I’ve seen. I tried various datelines for ‘the nude lifestyle’. That lasted 3 days. All I got in return were emails from creeps sending me photos of their erect naked penis. I have news for you guys, while the human body is magnificent and beautiful, the only ugly part of it – male or female is the erect naked penis. Date tip: It is not something we gals really get excited about it. It’s way, way, way down on the list. Trust me. All you’re doing is looking for a way to expose yourself and not get arrested for it. As far as I’m concerned, it only gets you put on my ‘blocked email’ list. Try a new approach. Take up ballroom dancing. You’ll learn something and meet some very lonely women who will let you have their way with them…if they are really, really really lonely.

So I email back to one offender. “I thought this wasn’t what nudism is all about”. Reply back, “Yes it is.” If it is, count me out. If this is what it is all about, then that’s just plain sick – seriously sick.

It has also taught me that there are a heck of a lot of socially inept, insecure men out there, desperate for women. I always thought it was the other way around, but it’s not. There are more men than women looking. Cool. I like the odds. I just don’t like the jerks.

It also occurs to me that you guys are people we see on the street and interact with every day. Like I said, take a dance class (seriously), wash your hair, get some new clothes, and go trolling for nice women. I’m not talking about the Paris Hilton silicon bimbos you dream about as you drool over the SI Swimsuit issue. Look for real women. So you’re terrified of what the thin women and your buddies would think if you ask a ‘fatty’ out for a date. Try it. You may be shocked to find someone as lonely as you, and someone willing to make a great life. You may even get lucky and find a close nudist.

So I go to a nude social event. Am I going to have anything in common with anyone there – besides being naked?

Until tomorrow - I'm still nude and loving it.

Besides, it's too hot for clothes.

I'll probably change my mind 6 months from now.

All my qualms about my size and nudism were erased yesterday when I discovered that Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock) is doing a photo book on large, nude women Wow. http://www.leonardnimoyphotography.com/7body.htm

I've heard some nice things from people who agree with me about the pornography end of things. They are giving everyone a bad name.
