Henry,,how are you conducting your research ::

of course, if airlines have the mile high club, cruise lines have the naughty nautical veranda society

Via the internet .Do you agree with me that a double standard exists ?

It really isn't fair to women, specially when I see a guy with bigger tatas than me getting to go topless![link=http://www.cruiseclocks.com/][image noborder]http://www.cruiseclocks.com/ticker/9554712755/ticker.png[/image][/link][link=http://www.eCruiseReviews.com]Read and post cruise reviews[/link]

Thanks, who ever you were!!
Can you post the photo so we can judge how good it was?

The photos I like may or may not be liked by someone else. I don't really feel the need to look back through boxes of photos to find one so someone else can " judge " it--no thanks-- I'll be the judge of my photos, but thanks any way !!

Girlfriend and I have taken 3 cruises together.....two of them balcony cabins. Interesting drinking coffee in the a.m. in the nude, for both of us, and usually turns into "extra-curricular" activities on the balcony.

Yeah, there are voyeurs who I'm sure peak around the partitions, but usually they retreat right back into their cabins just as quickly after they understand what we're doing.

Depending on where your cabin is, you may or may not get any sun on your balcony. Plus, if you get really frisky, you're kind of cramped on the smaller balconies. That's why we booked a suite (bigger balcony) this Sept on the Freedom.

BTW, we had one complaint because of our activities on a balcony about 3 years ago. Security knocked on the door to (nicely) ask us if we could tone it down since one of our neighbors called to complain. We stuffed towels in between the cracks and crevices of our partitions so no one could see.

We suspect the complaint was made by a "younger couple" (say mid 30s?) to our left. Don't know if they were prudes or what.

Then, we had another complaint a couple of days later about our "noise". So, last night of the cruise, we hit the balcony about 3:00 a.m. and "hammed it up" for our neighbors.

Upon disembark, we exited our cabin the same time as our nosy neighbors. They wouldn't make eye contact with us. I tried to start a conversation, but they wanted nothing to do with us......!

Why should I have to "retreat" from my balcony so you and your girlfriend can participate in extracurricular activities?

We have done it on many balcony's at hotels. This will be our first cruise though. We don't mind who watches as long as no kids are around. We try not to impose, but alot of people do like watching. It is fun. Al

You don't have to retreat. You have to make a concerted effort to peak around the partitions, anyway. Stay on your balcony and not peek into mine, no problems.

I am now waiting to see what your next question is, since the first two I see from you are related to topless bathing on the balcony and "where can we have secret sex on the ship?" This might get interesting, folks .

Well not a new question but a comment. We are going to visit haulover beach before and after the cruise. Haulover beach is a public nude beach in Lauderdale area. We have visited many times in the past and really like it. Extremely clean, and very polite people. Al

I am researching the "double standard" of why women can wear "brief" style 2 peice suits with any body type, but yet when a guy wears a speedo doing the same, he gets bashed. I guess the "topless guy" makes up for it.
I wear a speedo, but im in shape to wear one. But still get odd looks.

Why would someone be offended? In my case, I would spend more time on my balcony.

Its not the size of the "Ta Tas", its the size of the "nipple" that matters. Guys nipples arent nearly as large as womens, that is why where always covered. A women can walk around with no top as along as the nipples are covered with somthing..Like tape, etc..To me, I dont see what the big deal is about it..

Just for those holding their breath and waiting, I looked through several photo albums and found the photo--then upon close inspection , I discovered it was actually just a reflection of myself I had photographed. So sorry to have disappointed a couple folks !!
Oh well, disappointments do occur.

I don't like too either !!
Since I've gotten older and lost my lean, mean fighting machine physique,
people tell me I now look lie Rodney Dangerfield in a bathing suit, especially in a speedo. Last time I went to the nude section on Orient Beach on St. Martin I was booed off the beach and had to jump into the water !!

I was naked on a ship once; the Captain saw me, and sent out the call to abandon ship .
