Most of us associate skinny-dipping (nude swimming) with summer fun, which it truly is. However, the first several weeks in Autumn are also conducive to skinny-dipping. It is extremely rare for the season’s to drastically change overnight. For most of us, we live in region’s where there’s usually a transition period of gradually moderating temperatures once the seasonal change occurs. This transitional period varies from region to region as well as from year to year.
Skinny dipping during the “off-season” is best done in shallow water whenever possible. The water is able to retain the heat from the sun and thus prevent a chill. By eliminating the depth of the body of water, be it pool, lake, river or ocean, the water on the body dries faster which further reduces the chance of a chill when leaving the water.
It’s best not to skinny-dip alone, even in shallow water. The is the very real possibility of shards of broken glass being on the grounds or in the water which can injure feet. No matter how calm the water may appear, the current and/or undercurrent can often be surprisingly strong. In the interest of safety, it’s always better to have at least one friend with you.
Remember, it’s much better to err on the side of caution than to suffer the consequences. Besides, how much fun is being bare alone? It’s always more interesting when there’s at least one other person nude with you!
