A nude beach , sometimes called a clothing-optional or free beach , is a beach where users are at liberty to be nude. Nude beaches usually have mixed bathing. Such beaches are usually on public lands, and any member of the public is allowed to use the facilities without membership in any movement or subscription to any personal belief.

Since every guy on the planet makes a point to look anywhere BUT down in a locker room, I wasn't aware that we men are also now going totally bare.
