These two were taken by Deanna.



You have already seen some of the pictures I took, at Hampton Beach, on Sunday, August 23, 2015 — the day of the supposed BIG show.

These two pictures were taken by Deanna, with her camera. In the first I am striding, purposefully as ever, towards a seated group, with what I think were two topless women, who are doing an videotaped interview with ‘Zach’ who was planning to make a documentary of the ‘Free The Female Nipple‘, New Hampshire movement.

The picture I took of this group appears at the top of this post and you can, by all means, click on it to get a better view. They wouldn’t let me take a picture of them. C’est la vie. No great loss to humanity. 

I then started chatting with Zach and asked him to interview me because I wanted to go on record as to what I thought of this ‘event’. I doubt whether you will find anybody more supportive of female toplness than I. But the Hampton Beach event was lame and nothing but an ill conceived, cheap publicity stunt by a few women who were desperately seeking their ’15 minutes in the sun’ though that was hard to come by that Sunday. There is nothing to PROTEST! Toplessness is permitted in NH. Just exercise YOUR RIGHT without trying to draw attention. That is what would work.

Now we will most likely see NEW legislation — whether constitutionally valid or otherwise. This event was regressive.

What has happened since. August 23rd was 8 days ago. How many women have exercised their LEGAL RIGHT of going topless at Hampton Beach? Does anybody know? What about other beaches and parks. It does NOT have to be beaches. Parks are fine too and anybody who has walked across a park in Germany in the Summer will know that topless sunbathing, by women, is the most natural thing in the world. That is something else. The so called ‘organizers’ of this NH movement. How many of them have been to Europe and seen, first hand, what casual, ‘most natural thing in the world’ female toplessness is all about.

My point when it comes to showing the female nipple is very simple and straightforward. JUST DO IT. Don’t make a fuss about it. Don’t attract attention. Just do it.

And PLEASE don’t bring in breastfeeding into this. Yes, I have hands on experience with that too and I will contend that I have more experience than any TWO of the so called organizers put together. No, of course, I did not breastfeed BUT I was around. My youngest was breastfed for 27 months. 27 months. My oldest for over 18 months and my 2nd oldest for about 14 months. That is 59 months of breastfeeding. Close to 5 years and these kids were breastfed on planes, airports, beaches, parks, restaurants, hospitals, malls, concerts … wherever. Yes, I had words with a FEW people over those years. BUT it was never a problem. So, PLEASE … don’t confuse the issue with something that is not part of the issue.

The issue here, from my perspective is very simple. Just go ahead and do it. The law is CURRENTLY on your side.

You can’t legislate ACCEPTANCE. I know. Discrimination based on skin color is illegal. But that doesn’t stop me running into that on a near daily basis. But I am not going to cry ‘boo-hoo’ and ask for acceptance to be legislated. That will not happen. I live with it.

Was it a BUST?

We got there at 9:45 am. Yes, it was gray, damp and cloudy. It started to rain around 10:30, lightly at first but with increasing vigor. It was pretty heavy by 11:15. But since I know when to get out of the rain we were already in the car and on the way back by then.

Was it topless turmoil at Hampton Beach? Not that I noticed.

Was it mobbed? Not that I saw, but as I some of you know I have Keratoconus in at least my right eye and I don’t see that well, which is why I have so much trouble taking pictures.

I had heard that over 1,000 had indicated, on Facebook, that they planned to attend. I have seen media reports, even from yesterday, that claimed, DESPITE the dire weather report, that hundreds of people were expected at Hampton Beach. They must have all left by the time we arrived.

We saw 6 topless women — but we didn’t walk the entire beach or spend that much time there.

I did do a media interview! SMILE. More on that later.

I, as ever, could be wrong, but I think the inclement weather was the BEST thing to have happened to the Hampton Event. It gave everyone COVER.

Well, I have a book to finish. I will have more to say later, when the book is done. Yes, I am now on record, on video, saying what I had to say. Remember, I AM ALL FOR TOPLESS — without caveat. My biggest fear is that we will now encounter new legislation. I do NOT want to see the FREEDOM and RIGHTS that women enjoy TODAY being restricted. I want women to be able to go topless in New Hampshire — even in Laconia.

I gather they plan a surprise event in Laconia. Now that I can endorse. Because THERE there is something to PROTEST.

At Hampton Beach there was NOTHING to protest about. Women have their FREEDOM, they have their rights. Do not claim to be protesting. That is insulting to those that have genuine grievances. That would be like me protesting racism (which I encounter daily). No. Do not even use the word ‘protest’. CELEBRATE. You, the women of New Hampshire, have the RIGHT to go topless (other than in Laconia).

CELEBRATE. Rejoice. Lift up your tops.


The most beautiful TOPLESS thing at Hampton today.
Now that is class.

But this topless beauty made me realize, for the FIRST time in my life (as I approach my 62nd birthday in two weeks), that I have finally got old!

This Lotus is TOO small for me! Yes, I can get into our MGB without any problem, but this is even smaller than than that.

Yikes. I am finally old! What a shame.


IF The ‘Free The Female Nipple’ New Hampshire Hampton Beach Event Backfires I Will Be Bummed!

IF as a result of the well intended “Free the Female Nipple” movement emancipation event planned for Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, new laws are enacted to restrict toplessness in N.H. it would be a crying shame.

That is my fear now. We could see a vicious backlash. Today, other than in Laconia with its City-specific ordinance, toplessness is not against the law — as befits the “Live Free, Or Die” State.

I would be so upset if they start putting caveats or limits on the toplessness laws — specially SINCE folks never really got around to enjoying what the law provides.

Something about the Hampton event always seemed incongruous to me. It would have made huge sense if female toplessness was against the law. But an event like that when there is no law against it is asking for attention — and in this case potential trouble.

They could probably get some laws passed in Concord, in 2016, given the current makeup of the legislature. I would really like to know where Governor Maggie Hassan stands on this. I would have tried to get her support before the event.

To me, ‘we’ should have just pushed the envelope on the permitted toplessness all across the state every day. In Europe you go to a beach or a park and you are likely to see topless women — maybe even folks, of both genders, nude. No fuss. No big deal. That is what the good ladies should have done in New Hampshire. A gradual but concerted effort to introduce and integrate toplessness in the state.

Any backlash we get will be because of the SHOCK-VALUE of the event — which is what the organizers are hoping for. Ironic. C’est la vie. The die is cast.


This letter, protesting the Hampton event is interesting in that it says what I think.
We should have gone for a gradual integration.
