Nude Beach Controversy at San Onofre Explained

It’s Friday, so that means it’s my time to post about OC’s local nude beach again (har, har). The rally on Sunday the 13th was a smashing success. If you’re interested, check out the Register’s article for all the deets. For those of you who still don’t understand what all the ruckus is about, The Friends of San Onofre have created a nifty YouTube video explaining why they feel keeping the south end of the beach clothing-optional is important.


Do you think it’s important to maintain the traditional clothing optional status of the beach or do you think it’s time for a change?

    I have no problem with a nude beach and the laws of the state should be changed to permit “clothing optional” beaches and forest park areas. Until then, do the H.D. Thereau-ian thing and use civil disobediance as your tool to protest the long standing law. Just remember with civil disobediance you have to be prepared to suffer the consequences when you chose to protest what you believe is an unjust law with the penalty’s actually imposed by the existing laws. I prefer that the law be changed and will work to that end.

    Actually, the law allows beach nudity. It;s the state park’s rules that do not.

    I vacation in the area so I can enjoy spending a day naked at the beach. From an economic standpoint, this change in policy doesn’t make sense from my point of view. If I don’t spend the money in Ca, I am going to spend it somewhere else. I know I am not alone in coming in from out of state from the people i have met at San Onofre in past years. As I said before, making the beach entirely clothed, tells me CA doesn’t want me to spend my money there.

    I could where a thong or a g string which I have the body to look good in. However, if there is this new move to puritanism, I would thing, I’d probably be harassed for wearing that little as well. Why risk it when there are so many other place i can go where they want my money and I can go au natural?
