What is it about a Canadian summer that makes people ornery about taking off their clothes?
Perhaps it has something to do with our long cold winter.
Hanlan’s Point on Toronto Island has had a ‘clothing optional’ beach for over a decade now.
Remember when as soon as the hot weather arrived so did the discussion around going topless and clothing optional beaches?
It seems we’ve moved beyond that and no one really cares anymore.
Even further, it has got to the point where if you are clothed at this optional beach naturalists will mock you.
After all, you’re clothed and they are not.
One such couple complained that they were harassed by two older naked men for not conforming.
I can see the nudists point, (as well as their private parts).
Why are you visiting a clothing optional beach if you are not interested in getting naked?
To me, that is freakier than those who just want to sun in the buff.
