Nudism/Naturism: Sunward Naturist Park

Our fave nudist reporter Jillian Page visits an Ontario nudist resort. Spoiler alert: she gets sunburned.

The Naked Guy

The story of Andrew Martinez, Berkeley’s “Naked Guy:”

It was easy to dismiss his behavior as a silly stunt, but to those who knew him, Martinez was guided by an endearing, if naïve, sort of undergraduate idealism. Raised in a family that refused to buy clothing with designer labels, he now argued that all clothes were a form of repression and that by not wearing them he was making people think about the coercive nature of convention.

I had a friend who went to Berkeley at that time and I asked her about Martinez. All she could tell me was “He had a nice cock.” Maybe the point wasn’t quite made.

Martinez story didn’t end well, and he succumbed to mental illness. In the article, friends point out that he was most sane when he was nude.

Facebook Bans Female Rowing Club After Branding Nude Charity Calendar 'Porn'

My own post script: I am in the YNA group on Facebook, which you actually have to join to see the content. And sure enough, they have trouble with people who report content. There are only two conclusions I can draw about the people reporting the content:

  1. They join the group and are shocked to find depictions of partly naked people in a group whose name clearly contains the word “nudist.”
  2. They are people whose lives are so empty that they joined the group specifically to cause the folks in the group problems.

I’m not sure which is more pathetic. I also had a model friend get a warning about a picture in which she is naked, but you can’t see those all so offensive parts. Implied nudity…who will think of the children?

Is Naked Yoga Legal ??!

I don’t know why anyone would think that it would be any more illegal than communal showering at the gym or getting undressed in the doctor’s office. None the less, Isis over at Asana Exposed answers the question in great detail.

San Francisco Board of Supervisors candidate George Davis makes another run at Scott Weiner. The article makes the point that Davis is making a campaign speech in Times Square since he can’t make it nude in San Francisco. That’s nice, but it’s not where the voters are at, is it?

Polónia: Clientes de área de serviço imperturbáveis com mulher nua

A woman in Krakow walks into a convenience store nude. Yep. Sorry about the lack of an embed on this. The embed code I found seemed to crash my browser.

By the way, the most remarkable part (as noted by a British paper too) is that no one seems to regard this as odd.

It was pretty hot, I reckon it was well over 30 degrees outside, but what surprised me most was not so much the nudity as the way everybody treated it is perfectly normal.

The guy with the camera thought it remarkable though.
