||I closed my eyes, and thought, and thought some more. The idea of taking off my clothes in front of men, how could a nice girl do that? But there were other women there, and they took their clothes off, and they had no problem with letting men see them.|
The ocean looked more and more inviting. The guilt weighed on me. Even if I stayed clothed, just being in such a place and seeing such sights was wrong. For almost an hour, I was torn. I went back and forth and finally, the ocean won. If it was a sin to be here anyway, it couldn't be any worse of a sin to participate. If these people saw me naked, they wouldn't be seeing anything they hadn't seen before.
Quickly, before I could think again and change my mind, I stripped. I took everything off, and ran into the ocean. As the waves washed over me, it washed the guilt away. I felt wonderful. I was skinnydipping in public, in mixed company, and enjoying it thoroughly. I came out of the ocean, and the feeling of not wearing a wet sandy bathing suit felt terrific.
