    Love your work Delilah, just saying.

    As far as your question on nudity, the body is beauty to behold. However, everyones definition of beauty is different. I have to say public nudity done tastefully is ok with me. I definitely would not go out in public nude, they would not want to see that, but what’s important is my husband thinks I am beautiful and that is all that counts. We all have issues with how we are perceived by others, I guess that is why these doctor’s are making so much money on cosmetic surgeries. I figure I have what God gave me and if I could afford to help it a little I would. But I can’t so I guess it means I’m happy with what I have even though it is a little more than I want right now, but I’m working on the weight issue..hehehe Keep writing babe, you’re the greatest..love and peace to you and your family. :wink:

    I think public nudity is both beautiful and inappropriate. Every human body is beautiful, but as public nudity is illegal, it’s inappropriate.

    I think it depends on where you are at…if your nude at a park with kids it’s inappropriate. If your nude in your own backyard with no kids around! It’s beautiful!!

    Not appropriate, I’m all for live and let live but not when someone somewhere would be offended – don’t inflict your personal preferences on others.

    On the other had nekkid Saturdays are loads of fun. :lol:

    I guess it would depend on the situation. If it is in a private, controlled setting (ie club, private party, private beach, etc) then it could be ok.
    But if this would be forced on non-consentual people then no. And definitely not if there is ANY chance of a child witnessing it.

    While in general I think the body is beautiful to behold, for the most part I also think public nudity isn’t appropriate. It’s fine where it is allowed, but otherwise it can be overly distracting and well, dangerous :) Most people are sloppy enough as it is with sun protection, and well, that’s a whole lotta skin to protect when running around in a birthday suit! ;)

    And congrats, Rana!

    Great covers.

    Public nudity: hmm..depends on the situation. And everyone has diffferent tastes in what is beautiful. I think either way you go some will take offense to it. I say if you are comfortable okay as long as the person doing it is not in an inappropriate place.

    Thanks. :-P

    Public nudity is an interesting topic. I don’t think I want to go to the mall and see people shopping nude. **Shiver** But, nudity is natural so I have trouble totally saying no to it.

    Congratulations Rana.

    If I ran around naked it would be inappropriate – trust me on this.

    Otherwise it can be beautiful.

    Both of these books sound very good. I have just started reading Erotica and have to say that I like it. Definately will be adding more to my shelf. Both are new authors for me. I love finding new authors to check out. Will be adding to my must try list. Thanks for the giveaway.

    It depends on the situation. There is a time and place for everything.

    Public nudity is inappropriate except in a nudist place. At least there peopel expect to see nude bodies of all shapes and sizes and won’t be offended.

    Mind you nude bodies can be extremely beautiful as this photo proves: http://i.huffpost.com/gen/217631/MIRANDA-KERR.jpg

    Depends on the situation you obviously wouldn’t want to be naked in church but I think the human body is absolutely beautiful.

    Boy, what a question…. LOL I think most of us have ‘less than perfect’ bodies and look much better clothed.
