    As long as I don't have to see the neighbor across the street in the buff, I'm ok with that.

    The very thought boggles the mind.

    It's really not such a big deal when everyone is naked.

    Exactly. We have a swimsuit optional beach here in San Diego and, after a while, you don't even really notice it anymore. Bodies come in all different shapes sizes and colors and it's really not important. It just becomes a comfortable way to enjoy the sunshine and surf. (I hate sand in a bikini.)

    Very true. It can in fact be very very healing to the body image. I had a friend who could not even undress in a locker room in front of other women. We went to a clothing optional hot springs on a womens only weekend and it was an epiphany.

    She had been a model as a teenager and even in her 30's she had this body image based on photos in magazines and air brushed perfection. We went and there were tall women and short women and thin women and fat women and curvy women and less curvy, and soft bodies and hard bodies and old women and young women and stretch marks and freckles and wrinkles not. one. perfect. body.

    It completely changed her self image.

    Yes, I have been finding this to be true with getting past feeling self conscious about my surgery scars.

    Great plan. Vitamin D pills? We don't need no stinking vitamin D pills! Full body sun is good for what ails you.

    Sorry, this thread is supposed to be about griping but I am just feeling entirely too happy to gripe about anything. Does that constitute a gripe?
