Whenever you think of going naked, usually people would prefer to do it within the confines of somewhere private. Even though being nude is actually a pretty normal thing, since we are after all born naked and do certain things in the nude, the idea of going naked while being in public is something a lot of us will probably not do.

In some parts of the world, it is considered illegal for an individual to go around without wearing any form of clothing. However, there are certain places in the world which have laws regarding those who want to show off their nudist tendencies.

If you're confident enough, pack your bags and get ready to strut your stuff in the top 5 places where you can legally go out in public while nude.

1. Cap D'Agde

This town in France is famous for being the world's biggest nude town. It also makes sense that one of the largest beach resorts that accepts nudism can be found here.

When summertime comes, Cap D'Agde attracts quite a crowd - about 40,000 tourists flock here and most of them are you guessed it, nudists.

Although nudism in general is legally accepted in Cap D'Agde, acts that are perceived as sexual are considered illegal. Specific locations are reserved for those who wish gather and to practice their fetishes, but they are done in private.

2. Oregon

Though United States of America is known as the land of the free, nudists are only restricted to go nude in certain states; one of which include Oregon, specifically in Portland and in Eugene where some of the most open nudity laws exist.

This state also bore witness to a naked bike ride where many individuals participated in. According to Mid-Day, "After the infamous naked bike ride, the rest of the world became aware that it's totally okay to get naked, just as long as no one else is enjoying it. In legal terms, you can't get naked with the intent to arouse others around you."

3. Munich

In 2014, the city of Munich in Germany made headlines when they instituted laws which basically made public nudity legal, though with certain restrictions.

These laws enabled nudists to not only go out in public but also allow them to sunbathe in the six "Urban Naked Zones" that the city created for them specifically. These local parks are close to the Munich city centre and seeing as they don't have fences, it is likely that all sorts of people can stumble upon these areas.

4.  Austin

This Texan city is considered to be one of the most topless-friendly cities for ladies in the United States. Austin also has "Hippie Hollow", Texas' lone government-maintained clothing-optional park. It spans an entire 100 acres on Lake Travis's shoreline and is just within the proximity of downtown Austin.

5. London, England

Though the British are normally portrayed as an uptight and conservative people, a lot would be surprised to know that it is legal to be publicly naked not only in the United Kingdom but also in Wales as well.

The nudity law here is fairly open-minded, however the act only becomes illegal when you intend to shock or offend others. In London, several establishments like gyms, restaurants and even poetry readings welcome nudists and allow being clothing-optional within their premises.

Whether you want to try doing something interesting like embracing the nudist lifestyle, or looking for a place where you can just let loose and be free, the naked truth here is that the five aforementioned places are sure to give you one heck of a good time.
