Excuses to be Naked

There seems to be a growing proportion of people out there who support environmental causes and aren’t shy about getting naked in public to show their support for them:

Of course, even if you are a little shy, it’s a whole lot easier to strip off in front of lots of other people if everyone else is going to be naked too. For some people, it’s an important enough cause to be worth overcoming their shyness or embarrassment to make a statement. For others, they love to be naked in public, rarely get the chance and this is a great opportunity for them. Others love to see lots of people naked up close and are confident enough to get naked to achieve that.

Human psychology is a complex thing and people fall into all sorts of categories. The fact remains, if you want to a “justified” excuse to get naked with lots of other people in a place nudity usually would not be accepted, events such as Tiger Streak, Bear All for Polar Bears and World Naked Bike Ride are becoming more widespread and popular.

    One of mine! I also filmed a solo lap in 2017 (link below). The bits where I’m on camera I had to do three time : set up camera; run past camera; go back and retrieve camera; then go back over the same ground to move on. It’s less tiring to film while carrying the camera but less of a video.

    In 2018 the instructions on the sign up page were a mess. They both said photography and video were allowed, and that it was not permitted. My guess is someone who just wanted to get naked had complained, despite the event being designed to get both publicity and sponsorship money. If you agree to being photographed and videoed don’t complain if it happens.

    For anyone thinking “I’d like to do that but I’m not ready” remember all those conscripted on their birthday during WW1 and WW2. Many of them weren’t ready but they went off to fight a war, many of them died, and many more were injured. Does people seeing you naked compare? Absolutely not! So just do it.
