  • I would,if you've got a fence so the neighbours can't see then its not illegal and if they say something then thier peeping toms

  • I wouldn't... but even if I wanted to I couldn't... we've only got a 4 ft chain link fence and I've got neighbors who are always out.

  • i would. i remember one time jennifer aniston (i think) was doing that and paparazi snapped pics and she sued because she was on her own property!

  • How close is the next house to you? I personally wouldn't because even though it is privacy someone could still find a loop hole to charge you with something.

  • I would not. All it takes is 1 call to the police and in your back yard or not get arrested for indecent exposure.

  • Maybe you could test it out. Put the towel, lawn chair out where you would want to lay out and then walk around the perimeter of your fence/house and see if you see anything. You could look for the holes, cracks, if someone could see over, etc. If not, I say go for it. I'd also be sure to bring a robe or something out...just in case you get a surprise visitor while tanning..hehe.
