I just got back from an afternoon at Black Sands Beach. It was pretty much the perfect day for the beach, and I had a pretty much perfect time there. It's a good thing I finally got to get some color... DAMN my ass is white!

that sounds like a nude beach?

You got it. It's nicer to let the sun touch me everywhere. And what's the point of getting sand in your trunks anyway? Black Sands is the best SF beach, just across the Golden Gate in the Marin headlands. South facing beach with a view of the bridge and city. Plus you have to hike about 500 vertical feet down a rough trail on a steep cliff, so you only see folks who are at least reasonably in shape. A few years ago it was always pretty crowded, but these days you almost get the whole beach to yourself.

Where do you beach in LA?

i'll usually go to santa monica beach - mainly cuz it's easiest. a few times when i've been down in the OC i've loved Laguna, it's very pretty.

i've never gone to a nude beach.

Laguna is really nice, especially West St if you like looking at International Male model types :-) When I lived in OC I went there a lot. When I moved north to LA I used to go up to Zuma, as my friends always dragged me up there. I don't think LA is big on nude beaches. There used to be a great nude beach in Palos Verdes, but they closed it down a few years ago. But all the best beaches in northern Cal are nude - probably because they are usually remote and relatively unspoiled.

I think most people have a big psychological hurdle to get over the first time they go to a nude beach, mostly because they don't understand what it's like to be casually naked in public. If you have huge body issues you may not be comfortable, but other than that most people get used to it very quickly. If you lived up this way I'd show you!
