Nude in “Maine: The way life should be”

  1. <p>Most amusing H Wayne.   Thanks for pointing that out.   Sounds like we males may have grounds for launching an anit-discrmination suit to get the anti nudity law which by default only applies to males oveturned there,  if we play our cards right.   In the mean time, I'm happy to leave a sleeping dog lie and let the gals enjoy  some favor under the law for once.   A refreshing change in our culture, even if unintentional.      </p>

  2. <p>Actually in most of Maine, females may be nude … legally!  State law, which is used by the majority of towns, restricts the display of the genitals. In females these are internal, thus not observable. There was a 'streaker' incident which brought this out!!</p>

  3. <p>A new word to me – "<span style="font-size: 15px; font-family: Arial; color: #000000; replaced: transparent; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline;">nudeable" – I want more "</span><span style="font-size: 15px; font-family: Arial; color: #000000; replaced: transparent; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline;">nudeable" places. Sounds like another good nude time Daniel.<br /></span></p>
