(Newser) – “Naked City,” France: It sounds like a nice place, right? But Cap d'Agde, home of a large nudist population, is currently the site of a battle between “traditional” French nudists, and the new wave of “libertines” who are apparently into “free sex and partner-swapping,” the Telegraph reports. Locals say the nudist quarter is now full of kinky hotels and people doing the nasty in public.

The swingin’ libertines even—shockingly!—like to walk around fully clothed and mock the “real,” traditional nudists, the Independent reports. One traditional nudist says they are “surrounded by wild animals,” and a local council member says, “When the sun shines, there is an area of Cap d'Agde which turns into the European capital of free sex.”

Nudism as a way of living is to totally free your body and mind. The only difference between nudist and non-nudist is we do the same things naked in life. Unfortunately, the situation now is there are always some people never being in nudism life but bombard out the door. That's really annoying. So, I’m glad to share a nudist paradise named and you can meet many like-minded persons who also love the naked fun. Good luck!

Sounds like the infighting the GOP has been doing.

Yuck, gross--the best thing about conservative America. I grew up in France and didn't know till I moved to Georgia that the naked nut sack wasn't a part of swimming. I learned fifty years ago that nudist means no one wants to see that. So, now sexy people with waxed nut sacks are taking over--hey, fifty years--you had a good run. You're French--shut up.
