cause it seems like every time I come to this forum I see 49 peoples are here.
Something tells me that is just a lie? Perhaps 49 is the new 0?
I swear I just came over to look and guess what....It's exactly 49 online again. Amazing!
Sometimes I wish it was 48. Why come over here to talk ? Post something worth while.

Could break a record today.
I'm wondering if JBaker's pic of the girl pounding wood on the "board needs traffic" thread would have anything to do with the increase in participation?

Okay, I'm going to check that thread out now.
You may run like Hayes, but you hit like $*!#
Would you like to borrow my copy of The Sun Deck?
I'm going to need an explanation as to what that is before I answer.
The Sun Deck was a mid twentieth century educational, cultural, and scientific publication for the advancement of nudism. It would be considered far from erotic by today’s standards. Other than nudity, there was nothing overtly sexual in the Kodachrome photos.
Unlike the erotic men's magazines of the day, these were mostly average and ordinary young women and some couples engaging in everyday summertime activities; badminton, croquet, fishing, ping pong and the like.
It was a very popular visual resource for me and my pubescent adolescent friends back in the 60’s. Today, I revisit the dog-eared pages for the nostalgic memories which they hold.
A few more questions:
1) Describe the average grooming habits of participants.
2) Were the publishers trying to have nudism accepted in the general public?
3) Did people really play badminton back then?
4) Do you think the lack of eroticism led to its ultimate failure or was it for some other reason?
(1) As for grooming habits - don't read anything into this - many women wore a bouffant coiffure and the men were for the most part clean shaven.
Now you can read into this - quoting (somewhat out of context) the Cowsills, the men were "hairy high and low"
Many of the women on the other hand were early pioneers in the hygienic art of carpet removal. Many had shag carpet, more or less kept in a natural curly, or kinky state - au natural, so to speak.
Most participants were thin and athletic in appearance with a few of the women being slightly rubenesque yet not unattractively so. I would add there were no morbidly obese folks in the publications (I believe they had their own magazine)
(2) I don’t think so – as you may have noticed, every subject, interest, activity seems to have its own magazine – I think this one was predominantly to keep aficionados abreast of the current viewing entertainment of the day.
(3) Yes – and croquet too … volleyball and hitting beach balls whilst running amok over sand dunes were activities which were also frequently enjoyed. Most drank Coke because things go better with Coke.
(4) Never really thought about it. Don’t have a good answer. One possibility might be the Taboo factor had worn off. Perhaps the practice was viewed as more mainstream and acceptable. Since eroticism was never really a component of the practice and the activity I don't feel its absence had anything to do with it.
