Some peo­ple just want to get naked

Edmonton Sun - - LIFE - — rita de­mon­tis

KISSIMMEE, Florida — Would you visit a nudist beach? ac­cord­ing to a re­cent british poll of 2,000 peo­ple over the age of 45, ap­par­ently visit­ing a nudist beach is a bucket-list wanna do!

That along with camp­ing at a mu­sic fes­ti­val and get­ting re­mar­ried are ac­tiv­i­ties peo­ple want to achieve in their life­time.

Oth­ers among the top 50 bucket list items in­clude: get­ting a new tat­too, eat­ing in a Miche­lin-starred restau­rant, at­tend­ing a school re­u­nion and tak­ing a hot-air bal­loon ride.

The com­mis­sioned study also re­vealed that three quar­ters of those par­tic­i­pat­ing in the com­mis­sioned study be­lieve it’s im­por­tant to live life to the fullest, while 4 in 10 don’t think any­thing — es­pe­cially age — should get in the way.

al­most a third de­scribe them­selves as ad­ven­tur­ous while 71% are open to try­ing new ex­pe­ri­ences. and half ad­mit they want to tick things off their list to feel they have made the most of life; while 58 per cent want to do so purely to make mem­o­ries.

One in four of those polled via Onepoll want to com­plete some kind of chal­lenge to prove to them­selves they are still phys­i­cally and/or men­tally ca­pa­ble, such as climb­ing a moun­tain, writ­ing a novel or learn­ing a new lan­guage. Get­ting nude is a top con­tender, notes the amer­i­can as­soc., of Nude recre­ation (aanr), who have been a lead­ing au­thor­ity on whole­some, fam­ilystyle nude recre­ation in North amer­ica for 88 years.

What else are over-40s look­ing to do? climb a moun­tain, run a marathon, change their ca­reer, ride a mo­tor­bike, bungee jump, sing in pub­lic and ... get a cat.
