Would be comedians comment often about "Old, pink, wobbly bits" on naturist areas. They don't realise that many of the bodies they ridicule were once young and slim. They may well have been figures that the critic had a fancy for. Should we stop being naturists when we lose our figures?
Does a racing driver give up driving when he gets older?

No-one should have to give up what they love because of sarcastic comments from ignorant people who have no understanding of what they do. Those of us caring enough to have a long and happy marriage, will as age crept relentlessly on may have seen our loved ones (be it male or female) put on extra pounds. That doesn't mean we should all hide away and not enjoy the sunshine without the encumbrance of clothes.
