The folks at Squaw Mountain Ranch not only gave me the grand tour, but also took the time to explain what draws them to the nudist lifestyle and some of the misconceptions they deal with.
“The big misconception is that somehow nudity is related to sex or sexuality,” said Sharron. “It’s not a sexual atmosphere – it’s just an openness and naturalness.”
“I was a longshoreman – I worked down on the docks and just retired four years ago,” said Lynette Kenney of Gresham. She’s a board member at the ranch. “And the guys would come up to me because I was real open about it – if you hide it, then you’ve got to start lying and I wasn’t into that. And they said ‘well, I wouldn’t be able to go up there because I would be excited all the time.’ And I said ‘no you wouldn’t – all the women are issued a tallywacker – they see a tally, they’ll whack it.”
