This is the most entertaining tread I've read on SN! Just have to remember that high beams are not a sub for running lights! Btw, I never wear a bra on the boat and my wife doesn't either! Knottygirl, now I know why they make mumu's.

Ya know there is a lot to be said about the benefits of vitamin D. Just go however you are most comfortable. If some weirdo hasn't seen breasts before then he's the one with the problem. Not the woman that is showing them. It's perfectly legal in a lot of states too. It is in Texas I know within limits.

In Europe nobody cares about that. On the med it is just a casual thing and not only that but complete nudity in some boats. Nobody gives a dam.

That has been changing in a lot of europe though in my experience. What once was a. purely american probem with nudity is spreading even to germany who many believe started the whole thing with public nudity. To me its just stupid. Its completely natural. If just being braless offends or excites or offends someone then they really do have sa problem. The only rule related to clothes that we have is sit on a towel ic you arent wearing anything and no sexual stuff in public. They are pretty universal rules.

Civility is not about right and wrong. It's about behavior that few, if any, would find offensive. Bras v no bras is not likely to offend many, if any. Clothed v unclothed will offend many, not all.

You mean, people should be offended by a human body that is not ostensibly naked, just naked and getting some solar radiation, on a boat on anchor, or sailing, where you only get close if you want to and not need to?

Personally the stuff that offends me is speedos on men, pants around the knees and bell bottoms. I've never been offended by a naked person.

Offense is in the eye of the beholder?
