(Redirected from Skinny dipping)
Skinny dipping or swimming in one's birthday suit or swimming naked in the mountains

noun - Skinny dipping or a skinny swim is the practice of swimming naked, whether in open bodies of water or swimming pools. Today, most nude swimming takes place in private swimming pools, at nude beaches, at naturist facilities, or at segregated public swimming areas. Some countries of Europe have no laws prohibiting nude swimming in public areas, but other countries around the world strictly enforce various laws against public nudity, including nude swimming.

The Sydney Skinny is the largest skinny swim in Australia.
