Swimwear and lingerie brand Pour Moi recently released two sunbathing guides – one for the world and one for the U.S. – to help people decide which countries and states allow nude or topless sunbathing.
“We know a lot of our customers like to ditch their swimsuit when they sunbathe, and with tentative steps being made towards international travel opening up, we wanted to help people find out where you can and can’t go topless when you sunbathe,” Pour Moi’s founder Michael Thompson said in a statement provided to Fox News.
“We’re a U.K. company and Brits are stereotyped as being quite prude, but it’s not true, a lot of us love to embrace more naturist ways in the sunshine,” Thompson added. “It’s been fun comparing which countries are most interested in sunbathing naked, versus what the actual nudity laws are in that country.”
根据 我们. map, only four states have strict restrictions on public nudity of any kind: 犹他州, 印第安那州, Tennessee and South Carolina.
与此同时, 11 other states have unofficial nudist beaches, or allow topless sunbathing in specific areas, despite deeming public nudity unacceptable, according to Pour Moi. Those states include Washington, 内华达州, 德州, 俄克拉荷马州, 密西西比州, 佛罗里达, 维吉尼亚州, 马里兰州, 特拉华州, New Jersey and Massachusetts.
The remaining 35 states have official nudist locations and allow topless sunbathing in certain circumstances, even though some of those states have made public nudity technically illegal. Many states allow nudity as long as it’s not intended to offend others, according to Pour Moi.
The swimwear company also found which states searched Google for terms including “nudist 海滩,” “nudist resorts” 和 “sunbathe nude.”
The top five states that searched for those terms were Wyoming, 佛蒙特, 阿拉斯加州, North Dakota and South Dakota.
For its world guide, Pour Moi found that 39 countries allow nudity or toplessness, 而 29 – including the U.S. –are more ambiguous and have some places that allow topless sunbathing.
The countries that allow nudity – even just in specific places – include a variety of places including Canada, 巴西, 西班牙, 日本, Australia and Sweden. 然而, each country has its own rules and regulations surrounding nudity.
The top five countries that searched “nudist beaches,” “nudist resorts” 和 “sunbathe nude” the most included Australia, 新西兰, 爱尔兰, 美国. and Canada, according to Pour Moi.
