SOAPBOX: A little nudity never hurt anyone

ALRIGHT, let's tackle the long and short of this nude beach issue.

It's a hard topic to expose without causing rumblings amongst the extremes of society.

The last thing we want to see is the media cover-up sensitive issues.

So here's my view.

If you're at a beach in northern New South Wales lately chances are you're going to see a few white pointers in the water anyway, so is the presence of a few more on the beach such a problem?

And if it's good enough for them, why not us?

I'm not advocating for a downing of the DTs at Mooloolaba Main Beach, but geez, surely up in the more remote enclave that is A-Bay if a few of the more adventurous among us want to get their rigs out then why not?

I've got a horror show of a chassis but I tell you, some days the thought of putting pants and a shirt on just gets me down.

I'd rather fire the laptop up and work from home stark naked, but as the Rolling Stones put it, you can't always get what you want.

But it shouldn't be that way for everyone!

Don't you ever want to return to the state of your birth, drop the daks and let the wind and sand roam free?

Why shouldn't those lucky enough to be able to spend their days at A-Bay be able to drop their duds and do it with the sun shining in places it wouldn't normally venture?

I'll happily continue the struggle of working in a clothed environment if it helps A-Bay enthusiasts' freedom!

It'll ease pressure on our legal system too, and if not, I'd hate to see a #illworkinthenude trend but I'm sure there's plenty who are prepared to play hard ball!
