Any Experience goingTopless on Ogunquit Beach?

My husband and I wear thong swimsuits and I prefer being topless at the beach. According to an email from the Police Chief, thongs and topless are legal on Ogunquit Beach, although she added that topless is not too common.. Does anyone have any experience going topless there? How common is it?

I wouldn't have a problem being the only one, since i know that it's legal, but I'm just curious. We hope to get there sometime in August.

We live here and have been to the beach many many many times in the past 14 years and I have never even once seen any topless female over 3 or 4 years old or heard any of our friends discussing that they had.

The perceived snippiness likely stems from your comment that you don't mind being the only one. On one level that reflects on your comfort level, but on the other it reflects on your consideration of the concerns of everyone else on the beach and the local culture.

I have seen plenty of men's bathing suits showing so much that I've had to look away. I happens practically every time I go. But I am not seeking those to be banned - to each his own.

Therefore, I am going to weigh in here for pro toplessness - you go!

Maybe it's not illegal now but if the Governor finds out, it will be. Meanwhile knock yourself out, just remember that it's Maine, not Boston. Moms are going to give you a piece of their mind, though I imagine that might be just the sort of thing that you enjoy.

Going topless is a great way to blend in with the locals on a Maine beach. LOL

OGT beach goes on and on and on so I'm guessing that if you and hubby walk down the beach away from the families clustered at the hotel end you'll find a nice secluded stretch and won't be bothering anyone there at all.
