By Basha - Posted on 12 August While most people don't have much of a reaction to the mention of skinny dipping besides some giggling , when it comes to hiking nude it just seems, well, strange. People who hike naked say they feel much more comfortable without the weight and feel of clothes and being naked gives them a sense of freedom and enhances their experience. For anyone who has never hiked naked such as myself , some questions about logistics arise like: What about bugs, chafing of sensitive skin and the comfort of jiggly bits that will be bouncing around for miles? Not a problem, say nude hikers. Sweat evaporates off your body much quicker without clothes that would otherwise hold the moisture making you less attractive to bugs.

The truth is I wanted to save weight by not bringing sunscreen.
