Here are some tips for having a fun time skinny dipping:
Be respectful and have discretion. Try not to traumatize any small kids. We agree the human body is beautiful, but give people the opportunity not to look at you if they don’t want to.
Don’t forget sunscreen and bug spray. You don’t want to get a sunburn in that spot that usually doesn’t see the light of day.
Don’t skinny dip drunk. A little liquid courage could help you get naked. But if you are completely drunk, swimming isn’t safe and could land you in a dangerous situation.
Beware of leeches. With a bathing suit, they are one thing, and when you are stark naked, it’s another.
Make sure your friends are comfortable. If everyone is happy to strip down, then go for it.
Keep your eyes on people’s faces. Interact as you usually would and keep physical contact to a minimum.
No photos. If only celebrities and politicians could learn this too.
It’s not a big deal. Get over yourself and have fun. Remember that not even swimsuit models look like that in real life. So, relax and enjoy being naked.
