Last year I spent some time at a nude beach at St. Martin. It was interesting to note the difference in how french and american women reacted to the nude men. The french women seemed much more comfortable in checking out the men's bodies, looking directly at their genitals and looking them up and down (much like men typically do to women) and making comments. I overheard a couple of women, right in front of me as where I was lying on the chaise, make comments like "ce grande" and they didn;t seem particularyly concerned whether i heard or not. one girl actually said to her friend "oo la la", which i took to be a compliment. I'm more of a shower than a grower so i look big, i guess, and i found it to be kind of cool that the women seemed so free and sexual. My question for the women on the board is, if they have been to a nude beach, how do they react, and express themselves, whether a guy is really good looking and well built, or whether they see a guy who they think is very well hung, or whatever. Do you express anything or do you feel that it is rude to stare, or look, or make a comment. Speaking for one, it is a great feeling to have women express themselves so openly and be, i guess, more like guys that way. Is it just a cultural thing?
