Ric December 19, features a DEAR ABBY column from in which boys, one of whom was 19, swam naked at a private lake front home that was visible to other lake front homes. The issue is complicated by apparently photo shopped pictures in which boys are naked in the presence of women. In some settings it is a wholesome opportunity offering females a safe place to view full male nudity. I was a shy kid and would have died of mortification had Katie or for that matter anyone else at the ice cream shop seen me naked under any other circumstance. I was spent but exhilarated. They are all available in the public domain. It should be noted that girls were never required to swim nude, but instead, unlike the boys, swimsuits were furnished females to protect their modesty and pride.
