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. Thank you for the like of my ‘letters.’ I’m from Jersey but sure don’t remember this beach…..and I am guessing I would have…

  2. 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.

  3. Reblogged this on Forget the Viagra, Pass Me a Carrot and commented:
    Nudism for many is completely natural and we all started out that way – for me however, I prefer the all in one, with the tummy flattener and that is in the privacy of my own pool!

  4. 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’.

  5. 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.

  6. 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 🙂

  7. At least they put a warning sign up.

  8. 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

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

  10. I just came from there (Gunnison Beach). Very windy yesterday and today- things were really “blowing in the wind”. I leave it to your imagination….

  11. Splendide article : comme d’habitude

  12. Da ich die Taschen immer noch finde und sie den jungen Damen in meinem noch sehr beliebt sind, gibt es die Tasche heute als Article zum Mitnähen. Ich
    habe über die letzten einiges gegenüber der Ursprungstasche geändert.

  13. Yes! Finally someone writes about hardcore.

  14. 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!

  15. This is very interesting, You are an overly skilled blogger.
    I have joined your rss feed and stay up for in quest of more of your
    wonderful post. Also, I have shared your site in my social
