Never been a fan of public nudity but I still visited Gunnison Beach, Sandy Hook, New Jersey. How humans looked strange!

Gunnison Beach is legal and attracts huge crowds in summer. There’s a group called Friends of Gunnison where hundreds of its members are friends in real life. Meaning: they live their city lives and meet socially fully-clothed; and when they hit the beach they’ll sit across from each other – discuss life, family and politics – without a shred of clothing on them.

  1. Did you intentionally abbreviate “who are” to look like WHORE?

    Also, I’m not a fan of public nudity if just ANYONE can do it, you know? Most people are fat and disgusting, so I think people should have to apply for a “Public Nudity Permit.”

    The permits will be issued to females between the ages of 18 and…hmm. 20.

    A panel of “local perverts” will judge the applicants in person and, if successful, will award them with the permit.

      • Most people aren’t weird; most people are just “most people.”

        If my “weirdness” gets me out of that shapeless hoard of mediocrity, well…then I agree with you.

        What was it Vincent Van Gogh said again? “I’d rather die of passion than of boredom”?

        I wouldn’t listen to that guy, though. Dude cut off his ear and blew his head off. 😉

      • Yes, you’re different from the shapeless bunch of mediocrity and your passion matches VVG’s. If you don’t want to cut the ear off cut something else off. No blow-your-head-off though 🙂

      • I’m right-handed, and briefly considered chopping a digit off my left…but then I realized I wouldn’t be able to play guitar as well.

        Then again, Jerry Garcia and Tony Iomi did alright for themselves, didn’t they?

  2. In Perth Australia they have nude beaches and most of them must have received that ‘permit’ another person commented on. I played volleyball on that beach.

    In San Francisco public nudity is allowed. Unfortunately the practitioners couldn’t ever hold a ‘permit’.

  3. There are worlds between public nudity and nudism. Nudists don’t want to disturb or provoke others. Instead of this sign there should be one saying this is a place where you can be who you want to be, clothed or not.

  4. Oh god…nudist beaches…not a big fan of public nudity either…completely the opposite. You can just imagine the amount of flab and ‘pork pies’ on display at Gunnison. Like a butchers, but more nightmareish lol…but I can see why some people can find liberation in casting off the clothes that society imposes on them…and just feeling free I suppose.

    Thanks for sharing!


    • Pork Pies 🙂 You’re right when you say ‘liberation.’ They just wait for summer so they can be free and liberated. If nudism doesn’t come naturally to people, they should remain clothed. Thanks for writing, Vijay 🙂

  6. It looks like you’ve started an interesting topic of conversation here. No I am not for nudity and you’re right, I might not get a permit if such is required. LOL

  7. Very interesting. I didn’t know this place existed. Thanks for the visit and the like of my Weekly Photo Challenge post “Letters”.

  8. You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I find
    this topic to be actually something that I feel I might never understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I am taking a look
    forward on your next put up, I’ll attempt to get the hold
    of it!
