Where can you swim in a g string but not nude?
In the days when Infiniti resort in Corralejo, Fuerteventura was mainly textile with a naturist sun terrace and only had occasional naturist weeks I wore the g-string pictured below most of the time.
ReubenT,Your argument that you grew up in the 70's when most men swam in briefs should be sufficient. However, the same line of reasoning probably would not work for men who grew up in the 60's or earlier when most men swam nude unless there were women present.
I would be happy to join them nude if it were still allowed. I'm just talkin bout current stupid rules, wearing as little as possible while trying to live with them without being arrested for indecent exposure. I entered the world in 1965 as nude swimming was fading out, and knew nothing of it till I became naturist oriented (could say garden of Eden oriented) and read the history of it. Someone older could probably get by with the same excuse, since few in modern society remain aware of the nude swimming, but most of the upper age bracket will remember when briefs were the norm.
I have one each of solar tan through and cool tan. the 2 main brands. in 2-3" inseam shorts. the cool tan is less open mesh than the solar brand, higher shade rating, I wore the solar in general field work until it's kind of wore out and more open mesh that it was new. I can see my skin right through it easily, but due to the color of it, a sort of mottled tan/brown, a causal look reveals nothing and it's still good for public use occasionally. The eye sees the fabric and does not discern that half the view is actually skin underneath it. I got the cool tan one and then didn't use it much. Save it for use on rare occasion around the extreme fanatic textile obsessed so as to not get up their ire for being improperly exposed. I only use the shorts or fabric around where people are anyway, rip em all off when out working or swimming/dipping in isolated place. My eventual plan is to make a good swimming pool of my own with dark cover to prevent algae, it can double as irrigation water storage. It will have water transfer on occasion, drained and refilled from the springs. and limited use to just myself and a few friends. Might be able to get away without treating it, since treatment isn't good for irrigation purpose.
When ever I can I swim nude I do. When it is the off season here I will go down into an area where there is really no one and go in the Gulf Naked. or at least without my top. I will take my top and tuck it in my bottoms. As I don't need to get fined or in big trouble.
A couple of weeks ago I was at a friends house who owns a private pond and he said wanna go swimming? It was hot out I was like sure I haven't swam in a pond in a long time. I did ask if he had any alligators he said non that he has seen in the 15 years. Then I said I guess I could go in my bra and panties and I don't have the beach bag in the car. He said why bother????? just strip down. I looked at him and said ok.....and stripped there on the dock. His eyes got wide and he shrugged and stripped as well. I don't think he thought I would get naked
