I know it's a bit off topic but as a woman I want to add my bit to the beach/swimsuit debate. The Lord called me to Himself here in Spain 12 years ago and we used to go to the beach regularly during the summer.
My husband, a heathen would just check out the females all day long to my chagrin (although middleaged)and as time has passed I made a decision not to go during the summer because as a woman I myself do not want to be constantly visually baraged with as good as naked people all day long, neither do I want to be oggled as I used to see. To me personnally it does not honour my Lord to be in my 'underwear' and also I am not helping in my husband's 'invisble' lust of the eyes. So beach is for the winter and a walk.
