A collection of 101 abstracts of cases dealing with recreational nudity and how they were handled in the legal system.
Many people equate their nude recreation experience with being in the biblical paradise known as the Garden of Eden. There is a freedom that comes with being nude with your family and friends on some ocean beach that many believe is as close as one can get to that mythical place on Earth.
Not everyone accepts simple nudity as innocuous and innocent. Laws have even made it illegal!
The expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden by Masaccio (1401-28) seems like an appropriate image for those people prosecuted for being nude. This compilation reads like an anthology of short stories developed about the general theme of being nude in a recreational setting.
Some of the stories seem a bit implausible. Others are down right funny. Some are titillating. While others are nothing short of bazar.
The thing that makes this book all the more interesting is that the tales are all true. Each “story” is an abstract of an actual case that has been heard in court.
Taken collectively the stories reveal how nudity in a recreational setting has evolved over the years from 1934 to 1995.
