The second Saturday in July is International Skinny-Dip Day. Here is the naked truth, there are some places where you should not skinny-dip. A snapping turtle pond heads that list. And if you do wish to swim in the all together, look for a sign like this.
The proponents of this practice give nonsense reasons to do so, like more skin showing provides greater Vitamin D exposure for the sun and that bare flesh dries faster than a wet bathing suit. Pretty weak reasons when they are just tying to convince you to show your birthday suit. Not me, mind you, but all my readers are younger and more fit than I am, so make your own choices. Give me an advance heads up and I will be there with binoculars.
