Is it private enough for nudity?

    My back yard is relatively private. However, all the houses in the neighborhood have a flat roof and it sometimes happens that people are on their roofs to service their air conditioning or for similar reasons. When on their roofs, they could see into my back yard. I sometimes like to walk around nude or sun bathe nude in my back yard. The risk of being seen nude adds up.

    If you were I, would the risk deter you from being nude in the back yard?

    Would you be embarrassed if you were seen nude?

    Would people seeing me nude have a right to complain?

    Could I be arrested?

    Here in Canada, the law is that it's illegal to be nude in public or to be visibly nude from a public place.

    So being nude on your front lawn - illegal
    nude in the front window of your house - illegal
    nude in the backyard, visible only to people in private property - legal

    If there are risks of people seeing you, don't do it. Not for your privacy, but some people just don't want to see that.

    If it's not illegal, and you want to do it in the privacy of your own backyard, go for it. But, if you don't want to offend people you genuinely like that live next door, maybe it would be a good idea to let them know you might be doing that. If you don't care about that, air 'em out!

    If some people don't want to see that and they're seeing you in your private back yard, they need to turn their heads. When it comes to nudity, you should feel free to do as you wish in your yard. Good fences make good neighbors.

    At 73 you should by now not be worried about what others think. If they see you nude in your backyard and they don't like it, it's their problem. Enjoy yourself.

    It's your backyard. Do what you want.

    My next door neighbor on one side, the widow G., is 83 year old. It's my guess that if she saw me nude, she wouldn't care since before 1980 or so, people were less upset about nudity. There are others who could see me from rooftops.

    Be the nude dude. I'm nude in my backyard all of the time. I have tall fences, but the nearby office building third floor might look in. Heck with 'em. It's not like I'm pooping in public.

    In your case I would assume it increases property values.

    Significantly.

    Same here. My house is next to an office building. I still go nekkid in the hot tub sometimes. I figure, if they go out of their way to look in my fenced in back yard, they deserve to see what they see. icon_wink.gif

    I hardly ever have clothes on when I'm at home. Walking around naked is too much fun.

    That reminds me of what I plan to say if someone comes to the house to complain, perhaps like this:

    Ring!

    I, answering the door: Hello!

    Neighbor: I saw you naked in your yard!!

    I: Oh! I bet you want to know at which gym I work out.

    Do you think that would be a good way to handle it?

    I'm often naked in my house too, at least during warm weather when it wouldn't run up the heating bill.

    I'd rather use a more positive response. Besides if I said that, they could accuse ME of being a pervert. Perhaps I could say, "Oh! I bet you want to compliment me for keeping myself so fit and having such a nice body." Something unexpected with which they are not prepared to deal is probably a good way to go, but not an accusation that would provide them with an excuse to reply in kind.

    Why not make it fun?

    You can be arrested if it is determined that you had a "reasonable expectation of being observed." Your post here would be the smoking gun.

    People aware of this site would not be concerned about seeing someone nude. Also, I only recently increased the height of the walls around my back yard to reduce the likelihood of being seen. The likelihood of being seen on any one day is probably less than one in fifty.

    Ditto.
