Not me! I never once "sat outside on the front porch". We have a name for people that do that, here, and I'll leave it at that.
In my case, when going without AC, I like to be discreetly inside in the shade, dressed in nearly nothing, and sipping a cool beverage with a couple of electric fans providing all the breeze and air exchange that I want.
It's really not uncomfortable at all.
