Is it socially acceptable to be outside on your own property wearing boxer shorts without pants or shorts covering them? I have no problem sitting on the porch like this or walking in the driveway. There is no flashing probable, no worry of it, they're shorts, covering the body.

For males(some females too perhaps), it's considered decent as long as your penis is covered and stays covered. For the poll question, do you agree?

wrong! it is never right for a female to cover her penis! and don't think that can't happen!

as for the poll, I voted yes and no both. Meaning it's ok but 'not really'

This poll kind of left me hanging.

As a woman, doesnt bother me. It's no different being at the beach. I often wear just a bikini in the back garden, sometimes with no top. Never had any complaints :-)

I'm pretty comfortable with it though there is always the outside chance of a jail break.

For a woman, it's a question of embarrassment. For a man there's a slight fear of being labled a perv, perhaps officially.

You need to get out more. This is normal to many people walking around in public!!

What’s the difference between boxers and normal shorts? Having tidy whiteys on underneath???

I don't hesitate to put the rubbish out, sit in my garden or walk down my drive to the car, or go into the garage in my boxers. I have been known to do so naked after dark (or sunbathe naked in my back garden, which is overlooked by neighbours) I would feel awkward walking off my boundary like that.
Amusingly, it is not illegal to walk anywhere in the UK stark naked unless you are 'causing a breach of the peace' or 'outraging public decency'
Test cases have shown that simply hiking through the countryside, visiting pubs and shops wearing no more than sandalss and a rucksack is not in itself an offence. Walking naked past a school with a stiffy would cross the line :o)
There are some Brit naturists that do the whole naked hiking thing as protesting their human rights though they get a lot of grief, they are pretty much accepted as eccentrics.

...the legal position is often less clear cut. In England, for example, the law does not actually prohibit simple public nudity, but does forbid indecent exposure[1]. In practice, this means that successful prosecution hangs on whether there is a demonstrable intention to shock others, rather than simply a desire to be nude in a public place. Specifically, using nudity to "harass, alarm or distress" others is an offence against the Public Order Act of 1986. Occasional attempts to prove this point by walking naked around the country therefore often result in periods of arrest, followed by release without charge, and inconsistencies in the approach between different police jurisdictions. Differences in the law between England and Scotland appear to make the position harder for naked ramblers once they reach Scotland.

Some people in Maine drive past a woman riding her lawnmower topless and go to the police station but are promptly informed that it is perfectly legal.

I would think the general rule is that if you have any doubt then some of your neighbors may have doubts and cameras and a willingness to make a complaint about it which gets you into computers and once in, you never get out.

So I'd be careful about anything even if its strictly legal.

Lol. Depends if they are perky or saggy. But seriously, anyone that complains about that needs to get a life.

I have to disagree a little. One should not fear the state 'getting you into the computer' for doing something legal. That's letting the state bully you with paranoia. If my neighbours have cameras outside their homes pointing at my drive and they find it amusing to watch and share videos of me doing what I want to, then bo11ox to them. If they had cameras surveiling my back garden, I'd take action against them.

I understand that Americans do not generally share our European attitudes towards personal expression, toplessness and nakedness.
I wonder how you guys think about breast feeding. Here, very few would give a damn if some mom popped her breast out to feed a baby in any public place. Mom might or might not try to be discrete but would be respected regardless.
