We discovered that while 13 percent of respondents said they had sunbathed nude, more than a quarter claimed to have had sex on the beach. Bring on the SPF 30.

    Plus...only top ten beach to allow NASCAR racing for ten years, Daytona Beach. Also, I wonder about these stats. Does this mean only 14% fewer people than boozehounds get lucky at the beach?

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to accomplish all 5 simultaneously. :shock: :lol:

    Upon successful completion, you will have 5,000 added to your post count.

    I have been around for a while, and I can think of only a few times when I saw people BBQing on the Beach. Now that I think about it, I have not seen people having sex on the Beach either, but I have unfortunately seen the remains of such acts, and I am not talking charcoal bags. I have witnessed kite flying, drinking, and sand castle construction. I notice in the poles that sex and alcohol consumption have a direct correlation.

    Some say if it weren't for alcohol we'd still be living in small tribes in warm climates.

    Uh huh. Methinks this survey was not graced with a well rounded group of takers. I bet a bunch of preteen boys were trying to impress their girlfriends or something.

    I don't think the Carrillon and Wild Heron crowd was voting.
