Re:Enjoying the Az sun II - continuation of the - Enjoying the Arizona sun

I'm fairly new to the message board and am very eager to go out and thong.  I live in the ahwatukee area and cannot seem to find a decent place to tan.  I live in an apartment community so it's difficult to establish any sort of all over tan.  I'm trying to get my fiance to thong but she is very bashful.  Anyhow any advice/ known locations will help.  I can't wait to enjoy the Arizona Sun.

Joey; Somewhere I have talked about stages. That is going smaller in stages. Go to someplace like NU Parr on East Indian School Rd and buy a No Tie Nada with the full coverage. Also buy one with medium coverage, small coverage and get a Arizona Rio all in the same color. If they don't have them all in the color you want they will make them up for you. Then you can go to the pool in the full coverage suit. After there a while you can slip into the medium coverage, then later the small. Finally at some point you can put on your AZ Rio and you are almost in a thong.
If you work this in stages most will not really notice that your swimsuits are getting smaller. Once you have done this a few times at your pool, it has been my experience that folks will get used to it and ths shock value seems to go away. Soon you can wear a very small suit all of the time.
I now get all my swimwear from Nu Parr and have the elastic put in the center of the rear. They call that the "bun hugger". If you have all of your suits done that way it makes if more difficult for people to realize your suits are getting smaller. Plus the bun hugger options keeps the suits from riding up. They stay put how you want them. Also with the elastic in the middle of the rear, you can get in the water and move the rear coverage to smaller without actually changing suits. This actually allows you to adjust one suit to the coverage that the next smaller one will be when you put it on.
Trust me this works. I have done it several times over the years and only a couple of people have commented that they thought my swimsuit was shrinking. I (think I) have  usually convinced them that it was their imagination and the I had been wearing the same thing all afternoon.
Others that have tried this have reported success. Try it and let us all know how it works. If you don't give it a try you will never gain the self confidence to wear smaller swimwear in public.
It will work for your fiance too.

That's great advice.  I will have to do that.  I was just at Nu Parr today and bought a navy blue v-kini thong.  I guess i'll have to buy more.  Anyhow i used to live in Hawaii and the thonging i enjoyed there was a 5 min walk to the beach.  It's just different out here you know.  I mean i'd like to think of myself as a conservative but geez its like these people want to bring back the old full body wool swimsuits back from the 30's.  I don't think i can work up the nerve here at my current complex just because the layout of the buildings and the heeps of kids that live here would stir up a little trouble.  I've tanned wearing smaller jogging shorts and recieved some negative attention you know.  Anyhow my parents are going out of town soon and with any luck i'll have their backyard to myself and my new V-kini.  Anyhow thank you for the advice and i'll take it slow here and they'll come around eventually.

Craig, don't worry about replacing the shorts.  If someone sees your cheeks from below, so be it.  If you can wear them so they just cover your cheeks from a normal viewing angle, keep on doing it.  The compliments you received from the women should far outweigh your concern about your shorts being too short.  It is obvious that many women enjoy seeing a guy who is not afraid to show his legs.  I've worn daisy dukes like yours into Wal-Mart before, but it was at night time.  After reading your story, I'm determined to wear mine into crowded places during the middle of the afternoon!  Thanks again for the bold, confident example.

Spent most of Sunday out working around the house in a lime green AZ Rio. It was about 105 and sunny, a nice day by my standards. The traffic as about normal but very quiet. There have been very few long honks, whistles etc. this year. Quite a few short honk-honk, I call those hello honks because that is usually someone that knows me honking hi.

A guy and girl came by walking their dog and said hi and commented on how well I take care of my place and I thanked them. A guy pulled up in a Chevy pickup and stopped to see what I was up to. As I approached the passenger side window he said “well I guess it is warm enough to be thong season now isn’t it? I agreed and told him it was going to be summer any day now. I don’t know this guy’s name but I see him all over and he always says hi.  We talked about the impending warm weather of summer and the conversation migrated to my attire. He asked “You are never wearing much when I see you do you like go to nude beaches and stuff”? I told him no that most of my time is spent right here in Phoenix and that I actually had never been to a nude beach.

He then commented on how he always sees me around the house in just a thong or G string and that my shorts remind him of Daisy from the Dukes of Hazard. I told him I really didn’t even own a g-string or thong but that this swimsuit is called a Rio cut which many people confuse with a thong. “Well whatever you call it, it sure dinky” he said.

I then told him I hated long shorts and what was the point of wearing pants that were cut off below the knee? I know that baggy pants are the style but I don’t find them very comfortable. He then pulled at his shorts that were just that and said like these? I looked down in the truck at his bright plaid baggy shorts and asked him if those were Rodney Dangerfield hand-me-downs. He didn’t know what I meant so I explained about the movie he did about being in school again and he wore these really loud plaid shorts to golf in. He now remembered what I was talking about and laughed and said “Yeah these are my Rodney’s and you have your Daisy’s so I guess we are both set.

He started to say something about seeing me at Del Taco the other day when a patrol car from the Sherriff’s department rolled up and parked behind him. Uh oh, wonder what he wants he said as the officer got out or the car and walked around to the passenger side where I was. I said hi, how are you today, fine he said, and then said I need to talk to you. The guy said I will see ya later and drove away.

The officer asked me “So what are you doing today? I told him I was just doing some yard work and clean up and such. “In that” as he pointed to my bikini?  Yes, this is my summer attire. When it gets hot you just have to dress for it. I work outside all day and when I get hot, I get in the pool for a while and then go back to it. Is there a problem I asked?"

He told me that they have had a lot of calls and that yes there could be a problem. I asked what the problem was. He told me that I needed to put on some shorts if I was going to be out front and that is something you can wear in your back yard.

Trying to be respectful and not argue I told him I wasn’t aware of any law that prohibited my wearing a speedo around my house. He then explained to me that what I had on was thong bikini and far short of your average speedo. He told me he could site me for indecent exposure and creating a public nuisance.

I told him I didn’t understand and that I had been wearing the same thing for the past fifteen years or so and have been told that it was indecent. He then told me that because I was sweating he could see through my suit and that was indecent, and that no normal person would expect to see anyone in a thong out doing yard work in their front yard and that is where it creates a public nuisance.

Okay I told him, let me run inside and put on something else but don’t run away because I wanted him to explain his perspective a little further.  I went inside and put on some short cut offs, grabbed the card I had from an officer from a visit last year that told me I was within my rights and all was oaky. As I came back out, he was driving off. I thought about it for a little bit and then went in and called the Sherriff’s Department, explained what had just happened to the dispatcher and asked to speak to someone and get clarification. She told me she would have someone call me back and took my number.

Wearing only my green AZ Rio I continued to work in the back yard when about an hour later on officer called me. I explained what had happened, my history, and that I had been told several times that I was not breaking any laws, and that the officer said there were “several” complaints, and I was somewhat confused.

The officer on the phone said well in looking at the log, I only see one complaint of someone in only a g string sweeping his front driveway. I assured him that I was wearing more than a g string. He told me that he was aware that I usually wore a speedo and we get calls all of the time but usually do not dispatch. He didn’t know why there was a dispatch this time but he would check into it.

I told him if there was a problem or the laws had changed or something I needed to know. He responded by saying he would look into it but he thought that maybe there was a misunderstanding. I asked him what that meant and he told me not to worry about it, and he would look into it, and if there is a problem he would call me back or send an officer out to explain it to me.

To confirm I said to him “so are you saying if I don’t hear back from you there is not a problem and not to worry? He told me that is correct. I made a note of his name and number but have not heard back.Next weekend we are having the family and in-laws over Saturday for a pool party and then on Sunday the gang is coming over, so I hope this is all settled because I am planning a weekend with family and friends of enjoying the Arizona sun.

I wonder if that deputy had transferred in from another part of the county recently, because you would think EVERYONE in that area would know about you!  I wouldn't worry at this point in time.  Just make sure you're not breaking any laws, and you should be okay!  Being polite towards the SO deputies, and local cops certainly goes a LONG way towards avoiding trouble!

I think you handled that well.  Sometimes the new cops that join the department, or are moved from other sections of the city don't know the score. This occationaly happens on my beach too, but normaly the sargent or one of the other cops corrects them. In our case it is thongs and g-strings, but even then it has never amounted to a problem.

I too thought about the new guy on the beat thing and I really wish he would not have taken off before I had a better chance to talk to him. The part I wonder about is how it got past dispatch. In the past one of the group has reported me just to see what MCSO would say and they basically told him "yeah we know about it and he is within his rights" and let it go. So I wonder why it was even sent out unless it was a slow day

The in-laws were over Saturday for a cook out and some time in the pool. Jeans sister, brother-in-law and their two boys were there along with Jeans mom. They all know that Jean and I wear small swimsuits so I never give it any thought. They all wear more in trend stuff like baggie long shorts and a rather standard one piece. One of the nephews brought his girlfriend along. They were all out on the patio when I came out in a royal blue AZ Rio that matched Jeans Rio cut bikini. Chris’ girlfriend Amanda got saucer eyed when she saw me in my swimsuit. She whispered something to Chris and he said “I tried to tell you”.  Hey Uncle Craig, Amanda thinks your speedo is “so small”. Embarrassed, she denied saying that and told him to shut up. Then he told her “I told you all he ever wears is those little speedos.” I made no further comment and went on about visiting with the family. I was trying to create conversation with Amanda asking where she met Chris and what she did or was hoping to do and so on. Jean walked by as we were talking and she said “Oh I just noticed that you and your wife’s bikinis match. I told her that was how we usually do it. She said to me, you are so tan, do you go to a salon? Chris laughed and said no, he is just always outside working around here in his speedo.  Mom said to her, “yeah they keep themselves in good shape so they can wear stuff like that. Craig has been wearing those little things as long as I can remember, and I think he still looks good enough to be able to get away with it. She went on to talk about how fat the whole country is getting and touched on how ridiculous it is to go to the store and see junior plus sizes. That just encourages them to get fatter. “If Craig wants to wear a little bikini swimsuit, I say it is his house go for it. Jeans sister pointed out that is even what I wear when we go to the community pool in their neighborhood. Amanda defended herself by saying “I’m not saying there is anything wrong with it, I have just never seen a guy is something like that. Chris asked her, Should I get a little thong to wear to the pool and lake? She kind of shrugged her shoulders and said whatever.   We spent a couple of hours out and around the pool and then ate some burgers, dogs, potato salad, chips and the works before they left at about 4. Tomorrow the gang is coming over for the first real get together at my house this summer. It is supposed to be warm and sunny and a should be a great day to enjoy the Arizona Sun

 Had the gang over on Sunday for our memorial day get together. I was wearing a bright yellow AZ Rio and Jean in a matching suit. Ann and Larry arrive at about 11:30. Ann wearing very short shorts and a half top, and Larry in shorts and a T-shirt. Because of Ann’s long buttocks when she wears her short shorts about half of her butt shows. If she had a bubble butt just the very lower part of the cheeks might show. She is always an interesting sight.
As they went out back, Ann stripped down to a very small cut red rio, almost a thong, bikini. Her suit had a small triangle top. The top was a little different. In the front between the two triangles was a clear plastic rectangle about 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall. The triangles were attached to the sides of that rectangle and so were actually sideways as opposed to up-and-down. Then at the tip of each triangle on the sides was a clear strap that went around her back. So all you saw were the two small red triangles on their sides. The triangles just barely big enough to cover her nipples. The bottom was an extremely small cut in front again with clear side straps. Larry would eventually strip down to a 2 inch side black and red bikini
Paul and Marci arrived next and had Tony and Becky with them. Paul and Marci wore very small cut bright orange thongs. Both suits had barely enough material to cover the intended areas. Tony wore a pretty standard cut black thong and Becky a red and orange print thong with a triangle top..Cliff and Sherry arrived with Cliff in a print string bikini and Sherry on a green and yellow print rio cut tie side bikini.
I was inside when I heard Jean cursing and went to find out what was wrong. One of the packages of hot dog buns she had bought on Friday was moldy and now there wouldn’t be enough. I told her I would run to Circle K and get some more but she insisted I take them back to Fry’s where she had bought them. I put on some shorts (the one’s I had threatened to throw away because they were so short) and a T shirt. I went out back to tell what I was going to do and that I would be right back. Marci said “Nice shorts” and Ann said “yeah, nice shorts but you need to pull them up a little more. As I turned around to head back inside I gave them a tug and pulled them up so that it felt like my whole butt was hanging out, and Ann said “now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. Then Ann asked that if I was going to Fry’s, if she gave me some money would I get here some Monster? Not knowing what she meant she explained it was an energy drink to which Marci told her that is just what Ann needed, more energy. I told Ann I would look for it and was there a certain flavor or anything I needed to get and she told me to hold on and she would just go with me. She pulled on her shorts and half top and we went to Fry’s

As we arrived at Fry’s the place was very busy. I told Ann I should just go to Circle K but she said you’re here now, just grab some buns and go the cashier an exchange them. I had pulled my shorts back down a little and we went in.
There was a display of hot dog and hamburger buns in the front of the store so I grabbed a pack. Ann headed down the aisle to get here Monster. I stood at the front of the store and watched as she went. I noticed how almost all of the guys turned around to take a look at her as she walked past them. Even some of the girls were looking at her short shorts. I seems everyone took a peek. As we were standing in the check out line I overheard somebody sing the “who wears short shorts” jingle and then laugh. I asked Ann, I wonder who they are talking about you or me. Just ignore it she said, I hear that all the time. F’em if they don’t like it. Then I heard a Black lady say “well look at his, they’s just as short, that ridiculous”. Another voice said “shit, you’s just jealous cuase you ain’t got legs like that. Then the first one said “ I sure don’t see you putting your fat ass in no booty shorts” and they both laughed. I heard bits and pieces of comments and we went through the line and left. Even the cashier that gladly exchanged the buns and apologized, commented that “you two look like you’re all ready for the pool”. As we headed back Ann seemed to take it all in stride and was not even talking about the comments. I commented that “you must hear comments all of the time about your short shorts. She told me that she does and that some are complimentary, some are not and some are just plain rude but she has just learned to ignore them over the years. Then she said you say you get comments about wearing your bikini’s around your house don’t you? I told her all the time. She said, and you just ignore them right? Well it’s the same thing. I suddenly realized how she was right and I understood how she does not let it bother her. When we got back Jean was cooking and it was near time to eat. We all relaxed and enjoyed each others company and the beautiful day. Ann and I never mentioned the comments we heard. Jean asked if there was any problem exchanging the buns and I told her no. We all had a peaceful day enjoying the Arizona sun.

I just had an amazing weekend.  The inlaws went out of town.  They have a pool to die for.  My fiance and i grabbed our suits (hers a purple microkini from Triangles in Scotsdale)(mine a black v-kini thong from Nu-Parr).  We tanned for the better part of Saturday and the better part of today.  The both of us have nice tan lines now.  The cool think is that the pool is a salt water pool so we didnt have chlorine drying us out all weekend.  Anyhow i love thonging in a private backyard.  Hope everyone elses weekend went as good as mine.  Azcraig, are you still alive?  Later guys.

What is the name of the MSCO deputy Craig? Can't wait till it starts getting a little warmer and no wind here in AZ. The pool is a bit colder than normal and the wind really makes it hard to float in the pool. Tried to hang out Saturaday and Sunday by the pool and it wasn't very nice. Hopefully this coming weekend will be better.

AzThangLover: Looks like it id finally going to turn into summer. For you folks not from Arizona it has been unseasonably nice here so far. It is mid June and we have not seen temps in the triple digits this month. This is usually the hottest month of the year for us with temps as high as 122. It is usually in the one teens this time of year. I have had my solar pool cover on until this week to keep the water temp up in mid to high 80’s. It has been sunny and warm, just not hot. I am ready for it to turn up the heat.   In working around the house this year wearing only AZ Rio micro bikinis, I have not noticed the usual reactions that I have in past springs. Most of the honks as people drive by are short honk-honk, what I call hello honks, with people waving. Most of them I don’t recognize as they drive by. There have been a few long honks, cat calls etc. but for the most part it has been calm. Maybe that is because there are not as many new people in the area and so they are used to it.   Went into the local Burger King last weekend wearing my very short cut offs to get some lunch. As I walked in there were two guys and a girl in line that noticed me as I walked in. The guy that looked at me said something to the other two and they both looked my direction. The other guy laughed and the girl told him to stop it. There were two people between me and them as we waited out turns and I could hear their conversation. They were talking about me working in my yard wearing, as one guy put it, “a thong or a G string or whatever”. The girl told him it s not a G String, it is just a little speedo. He said whatever you call it that is just plain wrong. The other guy said “I can’t believe that guy runs around like that without getting arrested, I see him out here all the time”. The girl asked him “why would he get arrested, it’s not like it is illegal or anything?. The guy said that it should be. The girl said “I kind of like driving by for a look” to which he said “your f’ing sick. She told him what’s sick is the guys that wear their shorts that are below their knees and halfway down their ass with their underwear six inches above their shorts. The guy said “ that’s some kind of gang thing and I agree that looks pretty stupid”. He then said you’d never catch me running around in no thong like that and……..he didn’t get to finish at it was their turn to order.   Have not heard anything from MCSO since the day the one officer stopped to complain. I didn’t get his name but I guess the issue has been resolved because I am out every week end and have seen plenty City and County cops drive past and none have stopped. Last week in fact, there was a City cop that stopped someone right across the street from my driveway and gave them a ticket. They were there about 20 minutes or so while I was washing my truck in a royal blue micro. When they pulled up I considered waiting until they were gone to start my truck wash but decided to go on about my business like normal.   The lack of response to what I am wearing this year is comforting. I am hoping that it is just because people have become acclimated to it and no longer see it as an issue.   This weekend Jean and I are supposed to meet with the group as Paul and Marci host their losing the first day of 100 contest party. They are not giving us any details other than Marci said that she would give us a hint. “Everything would be REVEALED on Sunday. She made a said the word revealed in a higher tone than the rest of the sentence so I am not sure what she has in mind. I am sure it will be  fun day as we are enjoying the Arizona sun.

 Craig--I found it after some searching. The coverage seems adequate to meet most requirements, although it would not meet the proposed requirement of Pinellas county due to some crack showing. I wouldn't expect any problems with the authorities, and you will certaily get a nice tan.

They are definitely a small bikini. It just covers the essentials.
The wife will let me wear the Parr Reo when she won't let me wear the thong.

On Sunday 6-28 Paul and Marci had their party that they had to pay for everything for everybody because they lost our annual “when will the first 100 degree day be” contest. This is an annual thing we all do and the one that is furthest off, pays.Jean had developed a tooth ache on Friday and it got progressively worse over the weekend. By Sunday her whole upper jaw hurt and her teeth hurt on both sides. A visit to the DR. on Monday would reveal it was a sinus infection. Anyway, as a result we did not get to go but I guess the rest of the group arrived a Paul and Marci’s for the party. They had rented a passenger van and everybody got in to go to the get together they had promised. It turns out that Paul and Marci had paid for a day for everybody at the Shangri La Resort North of Phoenix. I think Paul and Marci are members but I am not sure. They stopped and had brunch on the way and then went to Shangri La. None of the group knew where they were headed until they arrived. As they arrived at the entrance they all figured out that Shangri La is a nudist resort. I guess there was a little commotion as they went in. Larry didn’t want to strip down to get naked, Tony wasn’t really that into it, and Beck said if she had known she would have worked on her tan a little.I guess it is a clothing optional resort so all ended up wearing nothing except Larry who stayed in his speedo. I am told by Ann that everyone had a good time and too bad we didn’t make it. Truthfully, I am not sure Jean or I would have been too excited about it so I am not too terribly disappointed that we did not get to go.On another topic the photos that I have made available Jean took for me to post so you all could see what I am talking about for my summer attire. As far as photos of the others there is a privacy issue there and I will not post photos of the others without their permission. Jean said something to Ann about it and Ann Jean that she hoped I didn’t put pictures of her “on the net for perverts to see”. That response kind of surprised me from Ann who runs around everywhere wearing very little. I guess she feels maybe she still has some control over it. I don’t know. Had a good time on the Fourth of July but will have to report on that later.

I admire Larry for sticking to his guns, not caving to peer pressure.  It's presumptuous to expect everyone to strip, even if they're stringers.  We decide for ourselves our level of exposure.  And I think I hear where Ann is coming from, again choosing for herself where, when and how much she's willing to show.  I thought long and hard about posting my g-string photo in Images, finally deciding what the heck, it's nothing anyone's going to leer at, it's just a happy beach scene, not some licivious crotch shot.  I made the choice, and that is key.

I almost went there last year. It seems very nice but, Southwest wanted too much to make a side trip  worth doing. (I was going to Vegas) Unlike VEGAS you have both a nudist resort and a CASINO. Las Vegas claims to be "sin city" but, they SUCK in terms of nudist places.

July Fourth we were all going to go to Ann and Larry’s but a small remodel project had gone long and was uncompleted so we moved the gathering to our house. It was going to be a hot sunny day, perfect for being in and around the pool.

Ann and Larry arrived with Ann in a floral print thong and very small triangle top under her very short, very low rise denim shorts, and Larry wore a black and blue 2 inch side Speedo. Cliff and Sherry came in, sherry in a floral print thong and twist top, Cliff in a black 1 inch side Rio cut Bikini. Tony and Becky arrived next wearing matching teal green Rio cut bikinis. Becky said she got matching suits because Jean and I usually wore matching suits, as were the aqua blue suits we wore today.

Paul and Marci showed up last and brought another couple with them they had met at the Shangri La. Paul was in a small cut bright green thong and Marci wore a very tiny little triangle top and G string bottom in a reflective gold color. She introduced Pat and Mincy. Pat wore a two tone blue print thong and Mincy was in a red G String tear drop bottom that was maybe an inch and a half wide and a top that matched. They are probably in their late thirties and in good shape with Mincy being an average build. Both were very dark tanned.

Conversations started out around what a great time we missed at Paul and Marci’s party at Shangri La. Pat and Mincy talked about being members of various naturalist organizations and told some interesting stories of their ventures over the years. One story was that I think they said they were in Oregon, and there were about 3 families camping out in the woods in some remote area. Everyone including the children were nude and enjoying nature when a pack of Boy Scouts came over the ridge and right into their campsite. The scouts and their leader were quite embarrassed but asked if they could pass thru rather than having to backtrack and go around,  to which the nudists said was fine. About an hour later the authorities showed up to questions what they were doing. Long story short, they were told that it was legal to practice nudism there but they must post notices around the area. So they put Notice: Nude recreation area ahead on paper plates and posted them all around their camp area. 

They reminded us all that July in National Nude Recreation month. They also talked about the fact that wearing no clothes is legal in most states and only a few strictly prohibit it. I said something about how I had sometimes have had the Sherriff’s office out for wearing what I had on and explained that was what I wore all summer all around the house.

They seemed very knowledgeable about the law and told me that in Arizona you could wear a G string as long as you keep the genitals covered, and for woman keep the nipples covered too, and you are legal. They went on to say that if someone is offended by being that way in a public area, they can complain and authorities can ask you to cover up and you must follow their instructions. However the catch is that there has to be a complainant. The officers are not allowed to be to complainant nor be the offended party.

They told us the only real variable is if the complainant is a child that is 13 years or younger, then there is the potential of felony charges if they can prove intent, in that you purposely intended to be on public display with the intention to offend. That means if a kid is walking down the street and you run out to greet of confront them, you would have a problem. If you are working in your yard or washing your car or what have you, and a kid walks or rides past, it is difficult to prove intent to affront them. They seemed to be knowledgeable on the subject. I guess that should not have been any surprise. 

While we all visited and spent time in and around the water, I asked them what they wore around their house. They told us they have a very conservative Muslim family on one side and “Old Lady Gibson” on the other side so they always wear shorts and shirts out front but do enjoy the naturalist lifestyle in the privacy of their back yard. When they go to the community pool they wear typical unflattering swimsuits.

Ann suggested we need to have our next pool party there. When asked if the neighbors knew of them being nudists and if they ever saw them over the fence, they said that most everyone around them is aware and that maybe the Muslim family might have seen them but if “old lady Gibson ever saw us she would probably go into cardiac arrest. Pat and Mincy live in a normal high density sub division in East Mesa. They reminded me how fortunate I was to live in an area that allowed for the freedoms that let you be who you are and have us all over to visit you your somewhat open back yard area. 

They told us that any time Jean and I wanted to go to Shangri La, that they would be happy to have us out as their guests. Marci told them she had offered that several times but we never took them up on it.  Great food, great company, interesting conversation and a beautiful sunny day allowed all of us to be able to celebrate Independence Day enjoying the Arizona sun.

I looked up the law for Arizona:

13-1402. Indecent exposure; classifications

A. A person commits indecent exposure if he or she exposes his or her genitals or anus or she exposes the areola or nipple of her breast or breasts and another person is present, and the defendant is reckless about whether the other person, as a reasonable person, would be offended or alarmed by the act.

B. Indecent exposure does not include an act of breast-feeding by a mother.

C. Indecent exposure to a person who is fifteen or more years of age is a class 1 misdemeanor. Indecent exposure to a person who is under fifteen years of age is a class 6 felony.

It appears, at least according to the Arizona state laws, that a thong would be legal no matter what the age of the viewer.  (Local ordinances may vary).

The nudity charge could only be brought if  you expose the "
genitals or anus or she exposes the areola or nipple". 

The second section, that you have to be "
reckless about whether the other person, as a reasonable person, would be offended or alarmed" to be very vague.  I would just assume that thongs are always ok, and nudity might be ok if no one complains, but if they do you have a problem, becuase a complaint seems to be a de-facto statement that someone is offended. (I would not want to be in a position of trying to argue otherwise in front of a judge). 

I guess if you are in your own back yard and you have a privicy fence you are not reckless about the exposure but if you are walking nude through the mall you are reckless.

The only age related section does not change the nature of the law, only the punishment if the complainer is under 15 years old.  I think your friends may have confused this with the law from another state.

The requirement to cover the anus and areola suggests that women in public need to wear a micro top and both men and women should wear thongs rather than g-strings when in public.  Thonging in public appears to be legal in Arizona. 

Bottom line, your bottom is fine so long as you wear a thong.

JM, in this context, what's the difference between a thong and a g-string?  Which is the Skinz M1, for instance?  If the issue is a fully covered anus, that's easy to deal with, as g-string pouches often extend back far enough with enough cloth to cover the anus adequately, even while remaining hidden in the crack, with just a string emerging at the top.  Nicely shaped g-string pouches cover the genitals adequately, at least mine do, so that needn't be an issue.  Just wondering at your distinction between the two.

On the July Fourth weekend Marci wore a gold reflective foil like suit. When we were cooking the burgers she said something about her hamburger bikini and wanted to know if we had pineapple. I had no idea what she was talking about but the other engaged in a conversation that I didn’t hear. Then the other night I saw the Carl’s JR commercial on TV with the girl on the beach in the gold bikini eating a Carl’s JR Teriyaki Burger. Suddenly it hit me and I said something to Jean. She said DUH!!! Didn’t you get it?  I told her I had not seen that commercial before, but now I understand the point Marci was trying to make.

 Last weekend I asked my nephew who is 17 to come over to help me trimming some large branches off of some of my trees and help with hauling them to the dump. It was very hot. It was 110 at noon which is like 140 plus in the direct sunlight. I was wearing a royal blue micro and he had on baggy shorts to his knees and a T shirt. He got there about 10 a.m. and we had one load ready by noon. I pulled on some shorts with about a one inch inseam put on a tank top and to the dump we went to unload.  We stopped for lunch on the way back. While we were eating he asked “doesn’t it bother you when people laugh at you in your shorts? I told him I didn’t pay attention and hadn’t noticed anybody laughing. He then told me that there were people at the dump staring a saying things because when you bent over to unload the truck half of your butt was showing and that the three black kids in line when we ordered were laughing at me. I told him I wasn’t paying attention and that wearing less clothes felt much cooler in the hot weather. I told him that I didn’t know how he could stand wearing those baggy shorts. I would think you would be really hot in that but to each his own. He agreed that when he took his shirt off it did seem cooler but that was all he had for shorts. I jokingly told him that when we got back I would get him one of my bikinis to wear for the afternoon. He had no comment.

 When we got back and went to finish I pulled off my shorts and shirt and got in the pool before we went back to work. I told him to get in but he felt that if he got his baggy shorts wet it would be worse. I asked him if he wanted a swimsuit to wear. He asked if I had something like a regular Speedo or something? I told him I had a brand new orange bikini he could have but that everything I had was about the same coverage. He said well I guess we will be out back where nobody can see me so maybe I’ll try it. I got out of the pool went and got my new orange AZ Rio and gave it to him. He held it up by two fingers and said, gee, there is not much to it is there? I told him I thought he would find it much cooler than his shorts. He went in and put it on and came out back. As he came out back Jean complimented him on how he looked. She sprayed him all over with SPF 30 so he would not get sunburned and to work we went.  We worked for about two hours and were in and out of the pool. We loaded the last load into the truck to go to the dump. He told me he needed to go home to get ready for work and I told him that I could handle the last load to the dump. Then he said “you know I have to admit, these little Speedos are much more comfortable and cooler than shorts just like you said”. My girlfriend freaked when she saw you in yours when we were over here, she would have really freaked if she had been here today.  I told him to keep the suit and take it with him and wear it to the pool next time she was over. He said that he couldn’t imagine himself wearing that to the pool at his apartments, but if I was serious he would take it with him and maybe wear it the next time came over. I told him that was fine. 

I pulled on my shorts and went to the dump again. This time I kind of listened for anybody that would say anything about me shorts but heard nothing. It was now about 114 so I headed home to get in the pool. I have to admit, it was getting a little toasty out in the Arizona sun.

I was at MVD on Friday and while at the window doing a transaction the phone rang and the lady answered it. While on the phone she looked at my papers and then me and said “Yes….you do?.......really? …. No way…….Are you serious?....For real?......Okay, I will.   When she got off the phone she told me “that was Charlene over there at window 18 and she says she knows you”. I looked over and although I didn’t recognize her, she was waiving so I waived back.   The lady then asked “so you have a big yard to mow out there? Yes, I said, a couple of acres. And…..how do you mow it? “With a walk behind mower” I told her. Then she and when you are mowing……………..you are……………… dressed how?  During the summer I am wearing only a small bikini. Like a thong she asked?  No, more like a Rio cut bikini, not really a thong. Then she told me that Charlene told her she sees me all the time out mowing and doing yard work in a little tiny bright yellow, or green Speedo or thong. I confirmed that was my summer work attire and that I spent most of my time outside wearing very only a swimsuit. Even when it is 115 she asked? Oh yeah, I told her, I work a while then get in the pool and cool off, then work for a while. She then asked “so when you’re out mowing in your Speedo if I drove by I would see you? I suppose you could, everyone else does. She then said “well I noticed when you walked up how tan your legs are and didn’t see any tan lines from your short shorts so I guess that explains why. If you got that much to mow why don’t you have a riding mower? I told her that it is good exercise. See then said “well it sure keeps your legs looking nice. I thanked her.  As she finished up my stuff and we parted she suggested I go say Hi to Charlene on the way out. As I walked away she said those sure are some nice shorts, again I thanked her and walked away.
I stopped by to say Hi to Charlene. As I walked up I recognized her but didn’t know from where. I said Hi she said “Nice to see you, I see you all the time out doing yard work in your little Speedo and just wanted to say Hi. I asked her if she lived in the area and she told me where she lived and that she drives by all the time. Then she said Yeah a lot of the girls in the area drive by to admire you out working in your yard and everybody knows you. Really I asked? Oh yeah, some people think you must be gay or something but I see I guess it is your wife and others out sometimes too. I just don’t know how you can stand the heat. I told her, “I dress for it and spend a lot of time in and out of the pool”.  
As I left it made me realize that maybe most everyone in the area does know about me and the reason things have gotten so quiet from cars driving by is that folks in the area are not longer shocked to see a guy out in a small swimsuit.  
It is supposed to be 115 plus this weekend. When it is that hot it is well over 160 in the direct sunlight. When it is that hot it starts to become a little more challenging to be “enjoying” the Arizona sun.

That is cool that you got your nephew to try working while clad in nothing but a bikini out there with you!  I think you got him hooked on them!  I am sure to be that he wanted to try them out for a long time!  He had probably been thinking "Man I wonder what it feels like to wear one of those?"  He had probably thought "Man, I wish I had the guts to wear one of those!"  I'm willing to be that he was having the time of his life working in total comfort and freedom of movement compared to working in shorts!  Having a brand-new bikini available for him to wear was a REALLY good move on your part!  Having that opportunity to go for a ride in a bikini probably made his day despite being maybe being nervous!

 Went to Phx last w/e to hang with family & friends.  Too damn hot!!!  I did go to Nu Parr and picked up 3 new thongs.  Too bad the current trend is solid colors, I could use some patterns to break it up a litte.  Anyways, I was staying up at Pleasant and while Pops was at work I drove down to the lake and actually found a little sandy, flat spot.  I stripped down to a new print mesh thong and spent about 3 hours.  Not too many boats and not on other person, so therefore no comments.It seems over the last coupla years thongs/G's on men is becoming less of a novelty and any where I go it's not a problem.Good luck dealing with that infernal heat!  I'm back in SoCal & ready to hit the beach!Have fun!

Last Sunday I was getting ready to mow my field but found I needed gas. As I was getting ready to leave Ann showed up to visit with Jean. Wearing very short low rise hip hugger denim shorts and a tank top, she said she had been out shopping and just stopped by.

We chatted for a minute and then she asked, “So, do you know what today is? 
"Sunday?" I said.
"Yes, but what is special about this particular Sunday?"
I told her I had no clue.

She said "I’ll give you one. What were you getting ready to do?"
"Go get gas" I said.
"For the mower so I can mow the field."
"Wearing what?"
I told her I had on my little blue bikini under the shorts.
She said "Oh that is so perfect, and why are you only wearing that to mow your yard?" 
"Cause…..that’s what I wear on weekends?"
 "And why?" 
"So I can stay cool and get in the pool and cool off when it gets too hot."
"And why?" 

I forgot what we were even talking about I told her so.
She reminded me that we were talking about what special Sunday this is. "I don’t know, I give up" I told her.

She asked "Do you know what happened the last weekend in July thirty years ago?"

"OH I know!" Jean said with excitement. 

I still had no clue so I guessed “We landed on the moon?"

Ann and Jean both laughed and Ann said the moon was out alright.
Then Jean said “That was the day you wore my bikini to Ann’s."

"OH! That was thirty years ago?"

She said yes it was, as of this weekend. Ann admitted that at the time she never thought I would go through with it and boy was she surprised when I took off my shorts and exposed the small blue bikini bottoms that I wore underneath.
( I know I have told this story somewhere in this post about how I got started wearing bikini swimwear on a dare from Ann.)

She told me "So it is fitting that today you are wearing a blue bikini."

After more reminiscing I told her I needed to go get some gas because the mower didn’t have enough to do the whole acre. I told Ann that as long as she was here she could get started on it while I was gone. She told me she would get right on it. 
I went and got gas. When I came back and Jean and Ann were on the patio. Jean in a red thong bikini and Ann in one of Jeans bikini tops and her shorts. Both just gotten out of the pool.  Ann told me "Okay, I’m done."
"With what?" I asked.
"The field" she responded. 

I looked out in the field and it didn’t look like it had been touched and I told her it didn’t look done to me. Jean told me to go look closer. As I got closer I could see that there was something written in the grass by the mower.
I asked "what does it say?" 
Ann told me go out and look. I went out into the field to find she had written in letters about six feet tall THONG ACRES.  Above that was a huge T that represented a thong. Being somewhat artistic anyway, it looked like she did a pretty good job of it.

When I asked her how she did that she just told me she started up the mower and just did it. She told me that originally she was going to put “CRAIG’S THONG ACERS” but that Jean talked her out of it.

I told her that was nice but I had better get the rest of it mowed before we have news helicopters flying overhead. Ann said that it was too bad we could get a picture of it but I told her (jokingly) that I didn’t have the corporate helicopter at home this weekend so we were out of luck.

Jean reminded me that our neighbor Carlos does tree trimming and he has one of those bucket trucks that reaches way up in the air and maybe he would bring it over so we could get a picture of it. She called and he came over with the truck.  It actually looked pretty neat from 60 feet up.

I will have to figure out if I can post the picture to this site for you all to see. Anybody know how to do that? So after all that it was about 2:30, the hottest part of a 114 degree day and here I am out mowing the field, enjoying the Arizona sun.

The other day I was in my Black Thong from Sunup/Sundown. I had decided to install my CB raido and PA system into my F-250. And since it has an 8 inch lift on it I can't park it in the garage, so I had to do it in the driveway in the hot sun. Long story short... I was back and forth from the truck to the tool box and there happend to be a house For Sale a few doors down. I needed another tool so I walked back into the garage and I heard a car door shut and some people talking. I happend to turn back as the family of three was looking right at me... haha They smiled, wavied and continued to walk into the house to look at it. I don't know if they'll buy that house knowing that there is a guy that like to wear thongs next door.... but oh well.

Last weekend the group made a visit to Paul and Marci’s. We had not been there since last summer but they had been spending time at the pool in their thongs this summer without incident. When we arrived, Ann and Larry, Cliff and Sherry, and Pat and Mincy were already there. As we were the last ones to arrive at about 12:30 we all headed down to the community pool. When we  arrived and the pool area it was pretty busy with about 15 or so folks there.

There was one gal in a thong and the rest in various cuts of bikinis and one piece suits. All of the guys wore board shorts except one guy that had about a four inch side Speedo. We were all in some form of cover-ups. Marci in a long shirt that covered her bright purple thong with a small triangle top, Paul had on shorts over his green and yellow print thong. Cliff had shorts and a T-Shirt over his string side half back bikini, and Sherry had cut offs over her black thong bottom and triangle top. Ann had on a very sheer button up shirt and very short cut offs over her small red thong bottom and very small triangle top.

Jean and I removed our shorts and shirts that covered our matching aqua blue,  AZ Rio for me, and Rio cut bikini and tri angle top for her. Needless to say that all eyes were on our group as we got settled in and got into the water.

I was a hot muggy day so the water was nice. We spent a couple of hours poolside and there were other guests that came and went. One gal spoke to Jean and commented on our matching “little suits” She asked Jean how she got me to wear such a tiny bikini. Jean told her that I wore them all the time so it is much the norm for me. They talked about where the suits came from and chit chatted a little and then she went over to the group she was with. When she went back and started talking to them they all looked our way. I have no idea what was said.

There were a few people that talked to Paul and Marci and Marci quickly introduced all of us to a couple of them.  For the most part it was a quiet uneventful afternoon enjoying the Arizona sun.

AzThongLover: It is better for them to find out now rather than move in and then be offended. At least now if they move in you will have a little more freedom in knowing they are okay with you being seen in a thong.

Went to get a haircut last night. While waiting my turn I recognized my Dentist there waiting too.
I was sitting across from him.  He said Hi and asked if I lived out here. I told him that I lived about 2 miles down the road and pointed towards my house. He responded that was where he lived too and then named the development.
The cashier was listening in and said they had looked at a house in there and that was a really nice area. 
My Dentist asked where I lived and told him.

When the cashier walked back toward the back of the store my Dentist asked if my house was the one with the white Excursion in the driveway to which I told him it was.
Then he kind of struggled for words and said "So you are out……uhhh...you work in  yard…ummm…..you spend a lot of time outside every weekend?"
"Yes," I said.
Sensing what he was struggling to talk about, I said "I get up in the morning, put on my swimsuit and go to work. There is a lot to take care of."
He smiled, nodded his head and said "Well you keep it looking very nice."
I thanked him and asked where he lived.
He told me that he lived right across the street. He told me that there is a small field across the street from me and he lives in the two story house with no curtains right behind that. I realized that he is directly across from my house.
He said "Yeah, we see you every weekend out working wearing only that swimsuit."
"That is my summer attire I told him."
He said "Well it’s a small world."
Just then the cashier came back and called him to go into the back.
As he left he said "I’ll see you later, nice talking to you.” 

When the cashier came back she asked “So you live in that development too?"
"No" I told her, "I live across the street from it."
" Oh," she said, "You must know the guy that mows his yard in that little green bikini swimsuit." 
I told her I did.
She said that when they were looking at houses in that area, there he was out mowing wearing almost nothing seemingly without a care in the world just mowing.  "The day I saw him", she went on, "it was like 115 and he was out in that mowing. With all that to mow I can’t believe he doesn’t have a riding mower."
"Well, it is good exercise." said I.
"Yeah I guess so but I don’t know how he can stand the heat."
I said  "He was dressed for it."
She laughed and said "Yeah, I guess that is one way to look at it." 

Then she asked "So, where do you live?"
I told her “Right there.”

She got somewhat embarrassed and said, "Oh, that's you?"
I said  "Yes."
"I should have figured that out with your nicely tanned legs" she said.
Calling out to one of the other girls she said  “Remember I told you about the guy in the little green bikini I saw? This is him!"
The coworker said "No Way" and she said "Way!"
She looked at me and said "Tell her, she thinks I made that all up."
I told them  "I didn’t know what all she had said but I don’t wear much when I am out in the summer."

Her coworker came closer and in a soft voice said, "So you just wear a little thong to mow your yard?"
I said "It wasn’t really a thong but close to it."
As she went back to work she told me she thought Jackie (the cashier) was just making that up .

I was called into the back for my haircut.  As I sat in the chair wearing my cut offs with about a 2 inch inseam, the girl that was going to cut my hair said “Boy you have a nice tan”.
I told her thanks I get it by being outdoors every weekend enjoying the Arizona sun.

With the Labor day weekend at hand the group was getting together at my house on Saturday. I had been out all morning doing some yard work in a small red micro. Jean was in a matching red rio cut bottom with a small triangle top and was out back finishing the patio clean up when Ann and Larry arrived at about 11:45.

Ann was wearing a very thin clingy white tank top you could see very clearly through with nothing on underneath. She also wore her signature very short, very low rise stretch denim cut offs that exposed about 2 inches of her butt cheeks.  They came in with some ice we had asked them to pickup. They also had some other goodies they had picked up at the Fry’s store on the way over. Ann proceeded to tell us that the police officer that was standing at the entrance stopped her on the way in. He told her that the top she was wearing was inappropriate because you could see right through it. She told him they were only going to pick up a few things. He then told her she really needed to cover up before she went in. She stepped over to the side reached in her purse and pulled out a couple of tissues that she folded up and then stuck underneath her shirt and then asked the cop if that would do. He told her that was fine and then told her he was not trying to be difficult but realistically she could be arrested for indecent exposure and that she should consider wearing something under that shirt if she was going to wear it in the future. She told me that the tissues stayed in place long enough to finish her shopping. On the way out the officer told her to have a nice day. She said when she got to the car she took the tissues out. Larry being the quiet type never said anything until they were back in the car and then said, “I told you that you could see right through that shirt”. (Ann hates I-told-you-so’s) Ann told us that they had to stop at Walgreens because they forget to get some sun screen and nobody complained there. She changed into a red and white print thong with a triangle top that was about 2 inches wide at the bottom and about 4 inches tall. Larry was wearing a black one inch side bikini.

 Cliff and Sherry came in next with Sherry wearing a yellow and green print Rio bottom and triangle top. Cliff wore a very dark blue bikini  Paul and Marci arrived a little late as they went by and picked up Pat and Mincy. Paul had on a blue thong and Marci wore a very small green thong bottom with a string top that had kind of an eyeball shaped piece that just barely covered her nipples. Pat wore a tonga looking black bikini and Mincy wore a lime green g-string bottom with a very small triangle top.  

Ann was telling her story about the cop at Fry’s and Mincy told her that the cop was right and she could have been arrested and charged as he said. She told Ann that you don’t want to go there because if charges were pressed and she got convicted that she would be guilty of a sex crime and all of the baggage that goes with it. The problem, Mincy went on to say, is that most people see wearing things like that as sexual so some get all worked up over it. Larry said “ you know Ann, she dresses like that all the time and I keep telling her one of these days it is going to get her in trouble”. Yeah, yeah, whatever, was Ann’s response and then she went on to say she hears comments about her attire all of the time and people have told her how slutty she looks and so on, but that she really didn’t care, let them think what they want.  It was cloudy off and on very humid so more time was spent in the water than usual but we were all in and out all afternoon.

At one point when most of us were out of the pool there was a little red pickup that went very slowly up and down our side street looking through my chain link fence. The road is about 200 feet from the pool area. He drove out of site and about 5 minutes later appeared, looking over my 4 foot side gate. He was a Hispanic guy. We almost were all outside of the water and he says “hey do you live here?” As I walked over to the gate I told him I did and he asked if I knew where a Felix somebody lived and I told him no. He said he was sorry if he disturbed us, took another look and then left.

 I was getting late afternoon and pretty toasty so we all decided to call it a day. Ann told us that her Mom was out of town a suggested we get together at her house tomorrow. After a short discussion we all agreed except Cliff and Sherry who had other plans. So I guess tomorrow we will go over there to enjoy the Arizona sun

Since my last posting the group has assembled a few times and things have pretty much been normal (for us). Aside from out poolside get togethers in minimal swimwear, there have been some other interesting events that I will share.

Paul and Marci were at the pool in their complex sunning poolside in thongs when they were approached by a women that proceeded to tell them she didn’t approve of their poolside attire. She told them what they were wearing was disgusting and said something about them being perverts and they should be ashamed. Marci told her if she didn’t like it not to look. The lady then shook her finger at Marci and told her “I’ll take care of you” to which Marci responded “oh good, does that mean you will make my house payments and take me shopping and stuff?” The lady stormed off and left the pool area.

Later that week the complex manager, that had taken over about a month prior, came to Paul and Marci’s door. When Paul answered he asked to come in and talk to them. He told them he had a complaint filed about what they wore to the pool area. He said that there was really nothing he could do about it because they were not breaking any laws, but promised the complainer he would look into it. They had a very civil conversation. He knew of the background of this and reminded them that it was his job to try to keep the peace and asked that they be considerate of the other guests at the pool and then left.

The next evening he came back and told them he had created a new set of pool rules and wanted them to review them before he handed them out. He wanted Paul and Marci’s input. The new rules established “family days” at the pool. There was going to be one weekend and one more Saturday and one more Sunday per month that would be family days. On family days there would be no smoking, no alcoholic beverages, no profanity and no thong swimwear allowed at the pool. Additionally men’s Speedo style suits and women’s bikini bottoms would be limited to a minimum of 3 inch sides. The schedule would be posted one month in advance so everyone could plan there pool activities. Paul and Marci both thought his idea was a fair and reasonable compromise and that has now become the policy there. We have all gathered there once since then and I guess that policy is working well.

As the summer went on the comments, whistles, and yells while I was out front in my micros became fewer and fewer. There was one weekend that I was out for two days and never heard anything at all other than short hello honks from some people that I know.

Most every Sunday there is now a couple that go past walking their dogs. At first they would just say Hi or wave as they past. One day they stopped to chat as I was sweeping the driveway. They introduced themselves (they have a really long and odd last name that I didn’t really catch)and said they had just recently moved into the area. She asked me if all I ever wore were those Rio bikinis (she didn’t say thong!!!) I told her that was what I wore all summer and a little about the history of it. He said I was well known in the area. I jokingly told him that not all of the bad stuff you hear is true. He said “hey if your good with it, that’s fine by us”.   Since then when they come by we usually exchange one sentence greetings. I refer to them as “The Walkers.”

Went to the local Ace Hardware one day to get some weed eater string and was wearing pants because I was cutting down tall grass and tumble weeds and such. The female cashier asked why I was wearing pants so I told her. She then said that I wasn’t allowed in store unless I was wearing shorts and then said “isn’t that right Lulu to the other cashier. She agreed. I told them I would try to be more considerate in the future and we all laughed.

The weather was cooling off and on a day that was probably in the high 70’s, I was washing my truck wearing only a pair of my very short cut offs. I got more whistles, cat calls, yells and long horn honks that day than I had been getting wearing my bikinis. Go figure

Since it has turned winter several people have asked where my shorts are. I have been asked by people from Home Depot, Jack in the Box, Burger King, the local gas station, the bank, and even at the cell phone store that I think I have only been in maybe three times.

I was in PetsMart wearing denim shorts with aobut a one inch inseam. A women asked my why my shorts were so short. I told her she would have to ask my wife because she is the one that cut them off. She said I thought maybe those were your wife or daughters and I told her no, my wife’s shorts are even shorter and too short for me to wear. She just rolled her eyes.

As I have been out front washing my truck or doing yard work in pants people stop and kid me. They ask where’s that thong, or what’s the matter too cold for you and have made comments like “I didn’t even know you owned (or ever wore) pants. The Walkers have also commented about in being too cold to wear a Bikini

I was getting gas a couple of weeks ago and a woman that I didn’t recognize  wanted to know how come I wasn’t out putting up my Christmas decorations in your Speedo this year?  I told her that I had injured my shoulder in early November and couldn’t put them up this season. She said “oh, I sorry to hear that and that everyone was wondering why you didn’t decorate.  She wished me a speedy recovery.

Got a Christmas card from someone with no name or return address that had this little rhyme hand written in it. It’s nice to have the holidays and think of Rudolph’s nose. It’s nicer to see cold weather so you have to wear some clothes.  It was signed Happy Holidays….A neighbor

Jean found a Christmas present for me at the front door. It was to Craig from a secret admirer. It is a black Speedo boy shorts style swimsuit. No note or anything else. Don’t know if it was related to the card.

I hate the short days and cold weather. All I wanted for Christmas was for it to be 100 degrees. Needless to say I didn’t get my Christmas wish. Can’t wait till spring when one again I’ll be able to enjoy the Arizona sun

Congratulations to Paul and Marci and their pool manager for bringing the "swimsuit controversy" to a successful compromise!  Their solution is an excellent idea that more places should adopt.  Whenever their is a conflict between thong wearers and anti-thong wearers (is that a reasonable term?) it makes sense to compromise on some sort of "rotation" system so everybody will be happy.  I am going to suggest that to our area water park and see what happens (currently they don't allow thongs at all).  I am not optimistic, but I feel like I ought to give it a try.

I wonder if Paul and Marci encountered the pool rules sign reading "reasonable swimwear"?

So what are you Arizonians doing for the winter?  I know this weekend it will be up to the mid-70's here in PHX.  Thinking about catching some sun in the yard.  Anyone been to Nu-Parr lately?

Rotation of thong -- no thong seems like a perfectly good idea.  I have even seen pictures where natural hot springs have posted clothing optional -- clothing required days.  The trouble is it doesn't matter how logical it may be.  Non thongers will not understand why THEY should have to abide by a rules system which permits thonging, even if thong swimwear is permitted only 1 day a month.  I have seen it tried.  First certain times in the day were okay for thonging -- then certain days in the week.  Then odd days and even days, then two or three days a month, then one day a month, then one day each summer.  It didn't matter how much the management tried to accomodate the non-thongers.  They simply couldn't go along with any rule which made thonging okay even for just one day a year. 

So far Ohio has been able to keep the state parks thong legal every day of every year (although we currently have 18 inches of snow, and even I wouldn't want to go thonging today!)  Several attempts to change the laws to outlaw thonging have been tried, but so far only through legislative procedures where legal attempts have thankfully died in the Ohio Senate.  Politics change, there is no guarentee that future legislative attempts will continue to end in the thonger's favor.

A few years ago, I was told that North Carolina legislature was examining a bill that would have worked towards legalizing nude beach use.  I don't know if this ever made it into the legislature, but the jist of the law was that certain counties (Dare and Hyde which are where the outer banks are) would have certain state statutes dealing with public nudity suspended if 2/3 rds of the voters in those counties agreed with the changes.  It also included where nudity could be practiced (example, within 1/4 mile of the Atlantic Ocean), where it couldn't be practiced (example, inside incorporated areas, in areas visible from any public highway, etc.) and so forth.  Each county could agree via voter's preference additional restrictions ie day or days of the week, other areas where nudity would be permitted or not be permitted, etc.  The claim was that this would make the Outer Banks a place where US nudists would go and where foreign tourists would come in preference to other potential markets.  I seriously doubt if any such law could pass a state congress, and even if passed there if any local area could obtain the 2/3rds majority required to permit it's adoption within their boarders, regardless of how limited the nude area was made -- ecconomic down-turn or not.  But who knows -- maybe some state will take the plunge, so to speak.

We are having fantastic weather as of late.  I just came in from a nice layout session in the backyard.  Got some nice lines already and it's only Feb!  On a recent post of mine, i mentioned that i was looking into a tanning salon.  If the weather stays like this (which it is for the next week) forget about it.  I love living in this state!

Even better this weekend, I have been out both Sat and Sunday in a rio bikini.  I have clean my pool, the barbeque, weeded and just relaxed.  The nice weather is upon us in Arizona.

Dittos. I too enjoyed Saturday afternoon and Sunday outside. Early March and already swimwear weather. Wore a Red AZ Rio to clean the pool, put on the solar cover to start warming the water and do other chores around the house. It is supposed to be in the low to mid 80’s this week, For all of you still snowed in that ask how can we stand the 110 plus days…….this is it. For the next few months it will be fantastic. We have had a lot of rain (already had almost our total annual rainfall) this year and the weeds are growing fast. I was out and around cutting and spraying to try to get them under control. I got a couple of honks and whistles while out front spraying along the road. It is the seasonal part of getting passersby used to seeing a guy in a bikini doing yard work.  It has been a long cold wet winter (for Arizona) so I am very happy we can start enjoying the Arizona sun.

Nice to see you back posting Craig.  I am waiting for this weekend, should be high 70's low 80's and I need to work on my tan.  I spent most my time in the backyard.  I have my weeds under control with all the rain.  Only went to the front, side of my house to turn on the sprinklers.  I try not to venture out to the front with my rio.
I hope we hear more stories, Craig.  Enjoy the weather.
