FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bare-It-All Poll Results:
89% of Discerning Travelers Likely to Shed
Their Inhibitions While on Vacation
Hideaways.com Reveals Top 9 Places to (Tastefully) Take It All Off

Portsmouth, New Hampshire--(August 2011)--A recent poll on high-end travel website Hideaways.com asked 143 discerning travelers if they are likely to shed their inhibitions--and their clothing--while on vacation. For 89%, the answer is yes: of those, 60% say they'll join right in at a clothes-optional beach, and 29% say they'll work on an all-over tan in private.

Another 9% say they'll go to a clothes-optional beach but won't be seen in the buff themselves, and only 2% say they avoid clothes-optional beaches and won't even skinny-dip in private.

Hideaways.com conducted a similar poll in 2004. At that time, 79% said they'd shed their clothing while on vacation, while 21% said they'd never reveal it all when they travel. Why the dwindling inhibitions? "Perhaps the health message that we all need more Vitamin D is catching on, or people have even more incentive to travel light, what with the airlines charging for checked baggage," says Mike Thiel, President/Founder of Hideaways InternationalTM, Inc. "Or maybe global warming is making it just too hot for clothes."

8. Orient Beach, St. Martin (stay at Esmeralda or Alamanda)
9. Any Beach on the Riviera (stay at Hotel Martinez in Cannes, France)

"Here's the skinny on clothes-optional vacations: They absolutely can be sophisticated and refined," says Thiel. "It all depends on where you go!"
