Here in Sweden there’s a number of bathing places that allows for skinny dipping, and nothing wrong with that, it’s voluntary to be at them. I don’t visit those places, and probably never will, but I think it is good that there is options for those who want to.
Although I enjoy skinny dipping occasionally I don’t do it in public. I go to private secluded lakes where there’s hardly ever anyone else but me and the company I chose, and I always bring the bathing suit as a precaution in case others have found their way there.
What surprised me today was that in a news article in relation to a new such place “opening” officially. Some of the people that have their summer, or permanent, homes in proximity to that place claimed it was not natural to go skinny dipping.
I can understand that they do not wish for such bathing place right outside their house, but generally the bathing places are located a bit outside of the communities and harm no one. But to call it unnatural seem a bit out of place, to me that sounds pretty natural, we are after all born naked.
Admittedly it is not the normal thing by the standards in the society today.
What do YOU think?
Is skinny dipping natural or not?
