Sex in the pouring rain - sounds so sensual, sexy and erotic! <br />
<br />
But I have a question - how do you get robbed at gunpoint while skinny dipping in the ocean? What did you have to be robbed of, while naked in the ocean? :)

Truly a great list. You are half my age and have accomplished many things till on my bucket list.

Cool list! I've always wanted to get my tongue pierced but I'm too old for that now.
