I've read book reports written by 4th graders that read more intelligently than this garbage, yep I have.

Also, if it's illegal to be nude in the place where you are, it's not really a "skinny dipping spot."

Also, I'm gonna go with the assumption that a list of "top skinny dipping spots" assembled by some website called "MyDatingAdvisor.com" has an underlying motive that's not really about the quality of the skinny dipping.

I've been to Marquette and Munising on Lake Superior's shores many times. The last thing I would call Lake

Superior is 'a skinny dipping spot.' It is the darkest, blackest water you've ever seen. I got creeped out being

on a boat on that lake, and never went on one there again.

This is just a hunch but I have a feeling the "skinny" in skinny dipping is a misnomer.

It is gonna take a lot more global warming to make that a beach where swimming happens.

We took a trip around Michigan last month. Miners Beach near Munising was pretty nice, and the water was warmer there than Huron (St. Ignace) or Michigan (Empire).

The average surface water temp of Lake Superior, even in August is around 40 degrees F...Skinny dipping becomes a rather life threatening proposition in around 3-5 minutes

I like to do nude photography. Sometimes my subjects will also take off their clothes.

I did the same thing last month. I'm considering going back up to see the Northern Lights as I've never seen them. But, my truck camping setup is designed to travel with the good weather, not against it.

I've been to both as well. Did you happen to go when it was cloudy? At night? During Winter?

My last trip we did the boat thing to pictured rocks and I thought the water was fine:

I will say since it's obviously so deep, the further out you go the less blue the water looks.  Also, I'm not sure I would ever skinny dip in Superior -- that water is damn cold!

So 'Eurotrip' but instead of European sausage, Yooper sausage. Sounds great.  sure.  Awesome.

the water is not "black." it's quite clear.  it is deep on a sunny day you can easily see to 60 ft if there is a sandy bottom.

When I was in high school In the early 80s a couple of times me and my friends sneaked into Astoria Pool in Astoria Queens to skinny dip. Lots of kids did this, so you wanted to stay close to your clothes and it was a good idea to keep your bathing suit in the water with you just in case another group of teens or security showed up while you were swimming.

I will never forget seeing my girlfriend Maria naked for the first time there. She and her family were from Venezuela, a beautiful dark haired hispanic girl with light blue eyes, just...

You get the idea.


/She is still professional model beautiful after 3 kids and over 50
//Yeah for skinny dipping with good friends I am still friends with 40 years later

It's also cold. Very, very cold. Even in summertime, it is like a shock hitting the water. I cannot imagine swimming fully nude in that water.

And if you survive the swim, count on hordes of mosquitoes when you get out (and before you get in). I will never forget being in the UP and stuck as they cleared a traffic accident off the road. The mosquitos swarmed the car so much we turned on the windshield wipers.

To sum up, if somewhere in the Porkies is the third best skinny-dipping spot in the US, there are no good skinny-dipping spots for sane people.

Yes the people you see at nude beaches in the US* are not the people you want to see nekkid. Blacks is fun during pride though.

*for better results try Greece.

Not unless they're putting power plants on NPS land.

So, maybe?

Unless you routinely swim in a wetsuit, what kind of swimsuit do you wear that isn't essentially skinny dipping when it comes to flesh/water contact?

The shiat that Farkers carry on about is mind blowing sometimes.

The late summer water temp at beaches in northern lower peninsula (in both Huron and Michigan) vary with the wind direction. The water can be quite nice if sun has been out and the winds have been light. However, if the winds have been blowing strongly the lake can "turn over" and bring cold water up from the bottom. That is a chilly day at the beach.

My memories of Lake Superior when I was a kid are that even on a "good day" in August, the water is damn cold.

First paragraph makes reference to "skinning dipping".

Second paragraph makes reference to "nudest" beaches.

Could be commonly used for skinny dipping but not actually legal, just little if any enforcement.

My family vacationed a lot on the North Shore of Lake Superior (in Minnesota) and my ween is about five millimeters, so due to embracing the 'causation' logical fallacy I 100% blame the lake for my microween. QED.
 
2021-09-24 3:44:18 PM  
That list is utter bullshiat. Sauble Beach in Ontario, #89, isn't even a nude beach, it's goverend by a draconian HOA on one side and Natives on the other... meanwhile Hanlan's Beach on Toronto island is a fully-nude drink-all-you-like smoke-your-brains-out orgy fest (Literal and Figurative) with actually beautiful people and it isn't even mentioned.

Some social media manager at a desk threw darts at a map here.
