Nudists take the plunge for skinny dip world record

READ MORE: No suiting up necessary for Guinness swimming record
Saturday was the day nudists all across the nation have been waiting for, as several nudist resorts, including Whispering Pines in Brunswick County, gathered in an attempt to set a world record. Without a doubt, these folks were not afraid to go swimming buck-naked. “I've been thousands of times. I started when I was little,” said Mark Trock. Believe it or not, until this event the Guinness Book did not sport a world record for the most people simultaneously skinny dipping, but they'll have one soon. It'll take a while to tabulate the final tally, but we do know this, 249 brave souls bared all at Whispering Pines Saturday afternoon. ”We’ve been looking forward to this for weeks. We heard it being advertised and we were so excited to be here. Then the world record part of this today, it's just icing on the cake, I guess,” said Phil McCulloch. Some college students found out about the skinny dip record surfing the net. "Being nude is fun. In fact yesterday was my birthday so this is my gift to you guys, being naked,” said Justin Gray, a first time nudist. Justin and his friends were first timers. But they're not alone. Dennis Hoffman, another first timer added, “It's cool. It's not like I thought it would be. It's a really relaxed atmosphere."

Simple observation after watching the video..

The human body is obviously NOT ALWAYS beautiful.


Maybe not everyone is blessed with what is generally considered a beautiful body. Even those with a perfect body, will grow old like everybody else. Sometimes you need to look beneath the skin to find the beauty that is in all of us. If you can't find it there, the problem is yours.

The "mind" of the person that does not see beauty in any form, shape or size does not "see". We are all beautiful people and clothing does not change who the person is. A perception is biased without knowledge.
