Are you nuts?!?! This is crazy advice.

Do not, ever, for any reason whatsoever, willingly expose yourself in public. It's not skinnydipping, it's public nudity. It's a crime almost everywhere. You will be charged with a number of serious criminal offences, required to make an appearance in public court, fined and very possibly, do time in jail. If you incidentally touch yourself and child happens to see you, you can just hang it up.

Consider the area|

I think that the article was written with mild humor and a sense of adventure. Of course it is not suggesting that campers strip down at the middle of a public beach for a skinny dip. The area in Ontario has many secluded areas as well as summer camps. With caution and awareness to the surrounding a pleasant skinny dip can be very satisfying. My daughter attends one of those tripping camps in Canada and they all go "au natural" in the lake for "wash dips"(biodegradable soap only). It has been the tradition for many years. No doubt those girls will have a great story to tell about the "naked man" when they return to camp and for years to come. It is part of the lore that makes camping such an adventure.

I have to tell you...if you think the articule is silly and it's a bad thing to do...it's because you have never done it. One's you take that step and you understand how good it feels, then you will be able to discusse it in a different way.

I'm not sure if your negative note about the skinny dipping piece was meant as a joke or not. After all, you can't be serious about being arrested for skinning dipping on a canoe trip! Live a little will ya, get away from your computer, go camping, and go jump in the lake - with no cloths of course. It sounds like you need to. To compare skinny dipping while on a canoe trip to touching yourself near chidlren - come on! Seriously!
you might be mistaken|

Stating that being naked is against the law is not correct.
Jail count of Skinny Dippers|

I would be curious to know the current jail count of those skinny dippers hauled off by the Park Rangers. While I found them to be attentive and courteous during a recent visit to Algonquin Park, I did not happen to see any Rangers skulking about in search of naked bathers.

PS. I checked out the bios of responses to skinny dipping item. Knarlydog gave his flcker website. Delightful pictures. Just be careful of the jellyfish that we've been reading about over here next time you go skinny dipping.. "A word to the wise."
