R49. I'm from San Diego, and I have seen Christopher Atkins naked many times throughout the years in person at the popular nude Black's Beach here in San Diego. It's a huge beach; great for walking and hanging out with a straight and gay section, all legal. The beach is accessible by climbing down a huge cliff (and climbing up that cliff when leaving), so the beach is not visible from the street. It's patroled by the police and lifeguards.%0D %0D The beach used to have a more sexual atmosphere, but that's no longer the case. In fact, the straight section is much more nude than the gay section where so many gay guys annoyingly wear their bathing suits because they don't want anyone to see them nude. The gay section is still nude, but those uptight gay guys could go to many other beaches in San Diego if they want to stay clothed. Black's Beach is for nudists! %0D %0D Chris sits in the straight section among many other nudists. He plays volleyball with the locals. He's comes to the beach alone, with friends or with his wife. He has no inhibitions about being totally naked at the beach. If he's not playing volleyball, he keeps to himself sunbathing, swimminng or perhaps talking to a few people.%0D %0D Atkins is a lowkey, attractive, average guy whose skin has been damanged by the sun. He looks older and more wrinkled than his years. But he's quite unassuming at the beach and is naked just like all the other people. The beach is sometimes busy and sometimes less so depending on the say of the week or the weather. Atkins appears to be straight and doesn't give off a gay vibe.

At the time of the show, he was working for some company that builds swimming pools - he was out there in the sun, shirtless, working away. I also love the free-spirit/exhibitionist in him.

I've told this story on DL before, but it's been a few years... A good friend from L.A. was roommates with Matt Lattanzi (platonic, but both gay). They used to hang out at the roller discos that were popular in the late 1970s, and do the whole shirtless, satin shorts with your ass hanging out, roller boogie thing on Venice Beach.
They went to an open call for the movie "Xanadu", because the casting director was looking for good roller skaters. As they stood next to each other in a lineup, ON-J (who had just been swarmed with a wave of lezzy rumors) came into the room with a group of suits. she looked every one of the guys up and down and left the room. A few minutes later, one of the producers came in and asked Matt to step into the other room.
The audition went on (my friend was not cast), and Matt never reappeared. My friend shrugged and left, figuring Matt would just come home when he was done with a great story about getting to meet ON-J.
Matt Never. Came. Home. Abandoned his belongings (which were admittedly meager) and never called my friend... A few weeks later it was all over TV that ON-J had a hot new, younger boyfriend (I've always heard she was actually lovers with dancer Sandahl Bergman during that period). Draw your own conclusions.
BTW, that same friend also hung around with a lesbian who dated Demi Moore for almost a year when Demi was 16 and a H.S. dropout (the girlfriend was 18 or 19, so don't start screaming pedophilia).

Blue Lagoon was borderline underage teen porn. There's nothing artistic about it. Yeah, other films or shows had had underage teen actors in sexual situations but usually it's tastefully covered up and often the scenes have a purpose to the story. Blue Lagoon was just an excuse for the director to get two attractive teens run around an island naked and hump each other for horny viewers for 2 hours. Poor Brooke was pimped out by her mom since she was a preteen. Chris was hot though and at least he was 18 at the time.
