Go To



As mentioned above, Skinny Dipping is Truth in Television. It was a common practice back before the 1950's or so, when swimsuits were impractical. It is still done today, though. As a matter of fact, some [[UsefulNotes/{{Nudism}} nudist camps]] which are otherwise clothing optional make their pools no-clothing. (It's a little known fact that suit fibers just mean something extra to clean out of the filter system.)

Related to NakedPeopleAreFunny. Often the prelude to a TwoPersonPoolParty. Can result to OutdoorBathPeeping or NakedPeopleTrappedOutside. Super-trope to GoneSwimmingClothesStolen. Contrast NonNudeBathing. For anime, see also FuroScene and HotSpringsEpisode (which is not ''always'' naked, only ''often''). Compare WaterfallShower, which can overlap or be a prelude to this at times, and SlipperySwimsuit, where the swimmer started off clothed but wound up naked anyway.

* An elderly man in Florida had owned a large farm for years. He had a large pond in the back, fixed up nice; picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some orange and peach trees. The pond was ideal for swimming , although he rarely did that anymore. One evening he decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five-gallon bucket with which to bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you leave!" The old man frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or to make you get out of the pond naked..." holding the bucket up he said, "...I'm here to feed the alligator."
