Topless Sunbathing

So its almost the end of summer here in BC and the time will soon come when we will need to start wearing some more layers. I always thought of Canada and particulary YVR as pretty open minded, but I believe topless sunbathing is illegal, apart from Wreck Beach. Indeed, Ive only ever seen it once (at Spanish Banks) after spending almost every weekend at the beach in the 4 summers I have been here

Anyway, even if allowed, my wife will never sunbathe topless and she feels her assets are only for my eyes. So, how about your wives or significant female others and you female a.netters, what is their opinion on top freedom??

No need to ask the opinion of the straight guys... and how many posts until we get the 'this thread is worthless without pics' thingy..... and some illustrations from Phoenix9 & JetMech!

Here in Sydney topless sunbathing is pretty much a non-issue, although some council inspectors occasionally get worked up about it. My wife did it occasionally years ago, but no longer (although i wouldn't mind  Smile.

On a side note, Ilast year I saw the first girl from my high school I remember topless sunbathing and, 25 years on, the sun hasn't been kind to her skin.....

There used to be only one spot around the coast where it was "acceptable" and that was Sandy Bay near Cape Town. I don't know where the law stands on it now, I'm pretty sure it is not allowed at public pools.

When I was on Bondi in 2001 I didn't see a top. Saw quite a few topless on Manley too. A couple of them should have been wearing tops though!  yuck

Legal, and pretty much 50%-50% around here.

My gf goes topless when alone or just on couple, with her friends or with other couples who also sunbathe topless.... which means most times.

Other than that, she puts her top on.

I dont understand why anyone would sunbathe any other way - if you are going to do it ( leaving aside what it does to your skin both in terms of cancer risks and aging ) then you need to do it properly . There are few things more ridiculous looking than a partially tanned body - all or nothing looks much better .

Fairly common practice at Grand Beach on Lake Winnipeg. West Beach, that is. You even find some nude sunbathers. East Beach is more family. For me, it's a non-issue.

There is call for a topless bathing beach in Sunderland, after two young women got men's temperatures rising even more when they lost their tops on the beach when we had relatively good weather back in June or July. I don't see what is wrong with it, it's not like everyone hasn't seen it before. Although, most of the time in the UK, you are more likely to get frostbite than sunburn, lol.

I've never understood the big deal about topless sunbathing, you really can't tell me that it's any different than a guy not having a bra on other than the fact that women's breasts are larger and rounder (usually). It's such a lame social stigma to instantly sexualize a topless woman and determine that it is a bad influence on children ect. It's the human body and a part of the body that really has nothing to do with sex in any basic sense, so it's always annoyed me that people make such a big deal about it.

That being said, I live in Miami and there are lots of topless women here, nothing like when I was in Barcelona but still, plenty of women feel comfortable doing it and besides the creepers who stare the entire time most people are used to it and ignore it. My ex used to go topless with me on the beach here, which I never had a problem with until we fell asleep and I woke up to find 5 guys filming her (she was well endowed) and cheering. What a bunch of sleazeballs, now for all I know she's somewhere on the internet starring in a "greatest boobs of Miami!" video.

Haha, no I wasn't one of them. I wouldn't step foot on a beach in the UK, only abroad, and then will only go topless if I'm by myself.

I don't understand something else: breast feeding in public. I don't care if a woman does it in public, just throw a blanket over it. But, at a beach, who cares? American society puts so much ephasis on a woman's breasts, yet we can not speak of them? AFAIK, it is leagal for women to be bare chested in Oregon, as well. Some women do take advantage of it.

I took one of my brothers to Hooters once. He was very excited to go. About 10 minutes after we were there, he was bored. He saw it all. He was happy as any straight man would be, but they were just boobs and legs. The novelty wore off. Plus, the food was not all that.

I was in a restaurant last week where a woman was breast feeding at the table next to ours - without covering up. That gives an all new meaning to "enjoy your meal"!  Yeah sure

Admittedly I don't have the stats, but "usually illegal" obviously depends on jurisdiction. In Oregon and Hawaii there are beaches and parks (Sauvie Island and Rooster Rock State Park in Oregon come to mind) that allow totally nude sunbathing. I believe there are nude beaches on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts too. I wouldn't be surprised if there were quite a few nude beaches throughout the U.S. I don't have the time right now, but I imagine a search of nudist websites would turn up a long list.
