Every time I visit a naturist site, there’s a familiar look to couples who pass by, whether it’s on the beach or in a campsite. And that’s the fully nude male, pareo-clad female couple.
Ladies will throw on a pareo for the trip from an urbanisation (here) or their campsite (in France or Croatia, perhaps) to the beach or swimming pool. It’s not a ‘modesty’ thing. Often the breeze will catch a pareo and leave your private parts fully exposed, for example. And here in Spain, where it’s breezy most afternoons, you could just as readily be walking to the beach effectively ‘bottomless’ anyway.
Me? I do throw on a pareo from time to time. There’s no hard and fast rules, it’s just whatever mood I happen to be in at a given time of day. Breakfast on the terrace might involve throwing a pareo around myself to offer a flimsy protection for the cool morning air.
I walked down to the beach bar for morning coffee earlier with it on, I walked back with it in my bag 🙂
Why do we naturist ladies do it? It’s that ‘hygiene’ thing, not sweating into a chair. When Mr. Keng is with me he’ll walk fully nude beside pareo-clad me, but I will have his pareo in my bag so he can use it to sit on.
Of course, as soon as any lady gets to the beach or swimming pool, it’s unconcernedly, confidently removed. But we still keep them around, and wear them, almost as part of a naturist ‘uniform’.
