LETTER: Burnt bums a not-so-fun side effect of nudity
A CLOTHES optional beach in the Bundaberg region, what a liberating idea. But there are drawbacks.
As a dinghy fisherman in the Top End I worked in Stubbies only and tanned almost all over.
Then in 1990 I sailed a catamaran from Brisbane to Darwin.
Off Gladstone it occurred to me that five miles off-shore I could tan all over without offending any one and cast aside my trusty Stubbies.
In less than a day's sunlight my nether regions were so sunburnt that for several days I could neither sit nor move without pain in the bottom.
I haven't sunbaked in the nude since.
Have you ever sunbaked in the nude?

Once or twice
Never, but I'd love to
No way, that's gross!
