Ok - I will rephrase my "opinion" - I, personally, was let down when they stopped "ogling"!!!! I dressed to be ogled, I undressed to be ogled - I enjoyed being ogled!!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Be honest ladies - when you get dressed "to the nines" is it for yourself or to attract attention - remember - be honest. If I dress just for "me" it's sweatpants and a ratty old t-shirt!

As for the bare midrifs and mini skirts - no - they are not "asking for it" - but I wouldn't want to be a young man in high school trying to concentrate with all that skin around - puberty is hard enough to go through! Whatever happened to young boys and "National Georgraphic" magazines - old ain't I tee-hee?

Well, You must be sort of special then huh? And you are up there why? A Weirdo or Pervert ?

I've been on more cruises than I can count, and yes the numbers vary dependant on the cruise type and it's departure location. However, I have never seen more than 8 topless at one time on these decks.
And the ole line about the users of these decks being the performers on the ship is just that... an ole rumor.

Crooz,
Well. if they try to pick up the pre 35 crowd then I'm safe. One time on a cruise I wanted to break out of the box(or should I say break out of the top) and be daring. However, that was many years ago. Anyway, who wants skin cancer there. Ouch!
It is interesting that people in the US are modest about nudity compared to our neighbors in Canada and the Europeans.

K, we're not so liberal about nudity here in Canada. It is legal for women to go topless here only because about 10 years ago a university student went topless down the street and got busted. She challenged the law and took it to the supreme court of Canada. They ruled the law banning topless women to be against our cobstitution on grounds of discrimination between the sexes (men can do it).

The fact that it is legal is far from what most mainstream Canadians would consider to be acceptable. We as a country are quite steadfast in the "stuck pickle" department.

The Europeans truly have no "pickle" issues on the subject of toplessness or nudity.

Jennifer!

Maybe because I've always been shy (in person ), I've never wanted to be "ogled" .

I try to dress appropriately for the situation. Right now I'm in sweatpants, a ratty old t-shirt, and "sockies"!

I agree with you about the young "ladies" of today. They leave nothing to the imagination! We are old, aren't we

Banker,
I didn't know of the law you mentioned. The incident does seem vaguely familiar. Interesting. So am I correct in assuming that beaches in Canada may have topless bathers?

Yes Gal, it is legal but rare to see though. Even those that do go topless, tend to stay away from family beaches etc.

Skin cancer comes from repeated unprotected exposure... areas such as the back of the neck, forearms, ect... I doubt you have to worry about it in the seldom exposed places that you would be tanning.

Isn't it a good thing that ladies boobs are on their chest? can you imagine all the hoopla if they were on , for example their feet? Can you imagine having to decide " well, do I go sockless today or not "?

Sign on the infamous little piece of deck around the funnel area might read----- Attention--- socks optional area--- no cameras or minors allowed." Can you imagine Wilbur saying to Fred " boy--- did you see the feet on that blonde " ?

Ron - brilliant bud! Some would have bunions, some would have corns and still others would have those perky blisters. Think of the business Dr. Scholls would have had lol. Not to mention the volume in sales of support hose :o And what about those poor ladies with "flat feet" and "fallen arches"!!!

Thanks for the laugh!

I think its just the way the United States is & the whole norms of society. Remember back in the Victorian days it was absolute sin-going-to-hell if women even flashed their ankles on those long, outrageous dresses. (Must have been a man who designed them, cuz how did they even breathe?)

I think if the U.S. was connected to Europe (continent wise), things might be different. But because we are wayyyyyyyyyy across the Atlantic & basically connected with Canada & Central America, things are different. There's no influence here unlike Europe.

But hey, if you got 'em, flaunt 'em!!

Would women complain that men are always looking down when talking to them?

"hello, my face is up here, talk to my face please"!

I guess it wouldn't be second base anymore, it would be more like criket (spelling?) where they go back and forth??

Hi,
I just thought of a new diet. Its the TD(Topless Deck) diet and workout program. As you workout with small hand weights, you sing "I must, I must, I must improve my bust".

Sailing gal - I'm not much into diets and I think even less of working out - I think I'll just try walking on my hands and standing on my head - that should even things up lol.

Banker - get the visual lol?

Hi you guys, Too funny. Well, Jen, maybe I should try that too. Aaah, the joys of having children.
Hey, the Wiggles children show are singing a song about fruit salad and just mentioned melons. Speaking of melons, I was watching this hilarious commercial on the spanish channel. I just happened to land on it while flipping through. A guy is walking throught the fruit department. First, he picks up two lemons, shakes his head and puts them down. Then he does the same thing with two oranges. He gets to the melons, picks them up with a big smile and walks away. The end of the commercial is a picture of a "big melon" magazine. I never saw that on ABC.

I actually have gone topless not on a ship because this is our first cruise but when we traveled to Aruba on a few eaches there . however when I go topless it is only laying down I just do not feel comfortable walking around with my ..... flopping . But that is just me funny story...in aruba we were on a private beach on the other side of the island my husband was snorkeling with one of his friends and I was sunbathing topless all alone or so I thought. This man came by and I did not see him until he was right there next to me oops never meant for going topless to get me picked up y a stranger..needless to say I sat right up and pulled my knees into my chest to cover them up..after 20 minutes of me trying to e polite this man finally got the idea after me saying husband over and over agina that I was not interested in him and told him my husband is 6'3 and 240 pounds( he really is) and the guy finally left me alone.
My husband was not amused and said some choice words and things he would do to thisguy if he ever saw him again. ( sometimes it is nice to have him get jealous)
Anyway my point was I only go topless laying down. My choice but I respect women who can walk around that way. And I do not remain laying down because I am large I am not I am between a 36a and 36 b oh well !! It is also embarassing when you think you husband and his friend are no where neasr you and you are subathing upright and the friend accidentally sees you ( how embarassing) oh well here are my funny stories enjoy!!

Nearly three thousand views on this post and just over 80 replies. It’s hitting #1 in the viewing charts. Wow must be something special about this post,,,eh let me think

There are a lot of disappointed guys out there hitting this link with great expectation,,,,,,,,,,,hello!

Get a life, its a cruise ship site, other sites may suit your expectation. What did you expect, top heavy lovelies getting them out for the guys? Reality check or what needed !

Okay serious now. When you look at social attitude toward topless women, social acceptance etc. That number just shows the volume of pervs out there, that’s scary if the states ever allowed topless bathing.

Sort out your pervs, as they are allowed to vacation in Europe. I cant stand the drool

David, I don't think that I would venture out on to the topless deck unless it was infiltrated by the girls from Page 3 on the Online Sun.

I'm afraid that my ticker would not be able to endure the shock.

Paul - I've heard of "sticker shock" but never "ticker shock"

I am - and have always been well-endowed. I have also been very amused with the fact that men seem to think if a woman has "bodacious ta-tas" then she must be stupid. It has been my pleasure to put many men in their place

But it's not strictly a guy thing - women tend to make their judgments too - especially wives lol. I was often perceived as a threat but I would always explain to them that I "had a husband I didn't particularly want - so why would I want theirs?"

When I "got single" after many years of marriage - I would date a guy then when (if sometimes) he called again - I would ask him what colour my eyes were - if he couldn't answer I would hang up lol.

I would never be offended by anyone chosing to use the topless deck for what it was intended - it's just not and never would have been - my style.

David - drooling pervs - too funny!

Default 1 is not all ,,,,All is not 1

well just to trump your idea that all americans are crazy over nudity, i am going to tell you about how my girlfriends dad retired cop and nice guy had recently {few years back} told us about a good nude beach to go to...not because he wanted or thought his darling daughter would get ogled but because he hates tan lines as well......we have been going ever since..{not with her dad of course} so it once again is proven that u cant judge all by one........if you do than your as ignorant as the one whom who are condeming.....but as to the topic if you go up there you should be respectful...i only go if i am invited...my girlfriend and her friend ask me to come so sure....but i dont look--- but have seen many guys stare at them....so if you are disrespected and stick around its your fault....just leave and come back ...but fellow guys ....that is lame to go just to see some boobs...dont they get porn movies in the cabin...lol..!!!

Um...will keep my mouth shut on the nude guys I saw on St. Martin then....at least I THINK some of them were nude. Couldn't see a suit/speedo since their bellies covered that part. It's not just women who show things they "shouldn't."

I agree with the "don't look if you don't want to see something you won't like" group.
