“Naked City,” France: It sounds like a nice place, right? But Cap d'Agde, home of a large nudist population, is currently the site of a battle between “traditional” French nudists, and the new wave of “libertines” who are apparently into “free sex and partner-swapping,” the Telegraph reports. Locals say the nudist quarter is now full of kinky hotels and people doing the nasty in public.

The swingin’ libertines even—shockingly!—like to walk around fully clothed and mock the “real,” traditional nudists, the Independent reports. One traditional nudist says they are “surrounded by wild animals,” and a local council member says, “When the sun shines, there is an area of Cap d'Agde which turns into the European capital of free sex.”
