    Personally, I don't have a problem with it, as long as others are not a captive audience. Nudist beaches are fine with me, if they are clearly marked.

    Should public places be kid friendly?

    I don't have a problem with it either, but count yourself lucky. A public nudity offence in Europe normally warrants little more than a warning or a monetary fine. This same offence would land someone in jail in America.

    Looks like we have guys around here who want to expose their junk to little kids, or is it that they want to look?

    Have you considered that older cultures such as Asia or Europe that have far more public nudity, also have fewer cases of sex crimes? Take away the mystique and the fascination wanes. It's just human nature. America's "plain brown wrapper" culture only feeds into a big porn industry.

    I had no idea that Finlandians had identical body shapes.

    As we all know, everything should be legal so long as it is regulated cuz government knows all and has the power and wisdom to cure all our ills.

    That said, a government panel should be formed to see if applicants for public nudity are fit for public viewing. Unsightly bodies will be denied.

    Of course, applicants who are approved will pay a minimal tax for their application and receive a nudity license, which will help fund the "save the earth from Trump" campaign.

    why not clearly mark beaches where clothing is required?

    Used to go to all kind of nudist places in my youth. Wife, kids. No biggie. Seen a few pervs. They would get run off quickly. Best story. The Camping Bares club. Open the tent in the morning and guy was cooking bacon on the tailgate of truck. Didn't end well for him. Laughed my ass off. Unusual people. I have
    some good stories. Tripping on LSD after a 8 hr. hike into the mountains in a rainstorm. The good ole days. 1960 early 70's. Sure cringe at some people my age playing tennis and stuff naked now a days. Good for a laugh tho.

    I think I would feel somewhat uneasy about being so exposed in pubic areas. Sorry, public areas.

    Yes, Eladar, Finnish men are "dirty old men."
